Offensive the Campaign Denounced it as ‘Reprehensible’?

The Romney campaign has denounced what Buzzfeed aptly described as a “mindblowingly offensive” shirt that says, “Put the White Back in the White House” beneath a Romney-Ryan logo.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, a Romney spokesperson said the garment is “reprehensible and has no place in this election.”

The picture was taken by a Getty photographer at a Romney campaign event in Lancaster, Ohio on Friday, but is presented with little other accompanying information.

Still, readers can draw some conclusions of their own. First, the shirt is obviously not an official piece of campaign gear, but in this day and age it isn’t difficult to order shirts online with whatever writing you want. More than that, it looks like the Romney-Ryan logo might even be a sticker because of the awkward spacing.

With allegations of racism being thrown around left and right (remember when mentioning Obama’s golfing habits was deemed racist, or when peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were said to have racial overtones?), it’s sometimes easy to forget that there appear to be actual racists on both sides of the aisle.

Regardless, many appear to be using the shirt as “proof” that Republicans, particularly conservatives, are actually all racist.

“Must be a member of the slowly dying Tea Party,” one commenter wrote.

Naturally, you (and the media) ignore all the vile shit said to two black conservative women running for congressional office at the moment. Much of that has been documented right here in this forum.

Stacy Dash was the other. I misspoke earlier. She's not running for office. She's a Hollywood celeb and got hammered for backing Mitt.

Speaking of Ms. Dash, everytime she tweets something good about Romney, she gets all kinds of sh-t:
