From the Daily News:
A New Jersey man who placed a photo of President Barack Obama depicted as a witch doctor in the front of his clothing store says he’s surprised the image has been criticized as racist.
Bill Skuby of Spring Lake, N.J.’s Skuby & Co. said the display simply represents his political position.
He has temporarily removed the Halloween display amid ongoing criticism.
“It always comes down to the race card,” Skuby, 66,told NJ.com of the backlash he’s received.
The witch doctor picture shows President Obama naked except for a headdress and loincloth, with a bone through his nose.
“If this is racism, then it’s reverse racism,” Skuby told the Asbury Park Press. “I think they’re as racist as they accuse me of being,” he said.
The anti-Obama sign, which also reads “Obama-Care” with a hammer and sickle logo, a reference to communism, is a criticism of the president’s health care plan.
