Danny Hafley Defends Racist Obama Mannequin Display

Danny Hafley has sparked controversy by building a mannequin of President Obama eating watermelon. The mannequin sits near Hafley's home in Lexington County, Kentucky, reports

Hafley gave the same defense for the racist mannequin that so many other racists have given when creating offensive displays of President Obama: "The way I look at it, it’s freedom of speech. I don’t know how other people will take it.”

“That’s my buddy. He don’t talk. Don’t make no smart comments. If I had a dollar for everyone who stopped and took a picture of it I’d be a millionaire.”

Hafley bought the Obama mask on sale after Halloween and put up the racist display around the time of November’s presidential election.

When asked by why he has the president eating watermelon, Hafley said that Obama “might get hungry standing out here.”
