Days after an anti-Obama bumper sticker went viral, the seller of another version denies that her site’s product is racist.
Forbes contacted Hinesville, Ga., business owner Paula Smith, owner of Stickatude.com. Her company is featuring a $3 sticker that says “2012 Don’t Re-nig!” — the site’s bestseller as of Monday afternoon.
When asked by Forbes if the sticker was racist, Hines said no, explaining that the N word is not attached to race.
“According to the dictionary [the N word] does not mean black,” she said. “It means a low down, lazy, sorry, low down person. That’s what the N word means.”
Last Thursday, a photo of a similar bumper sticker reading “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012” spread on Facebook. Below that line was a set of smaller text that read “Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect Obama!”
