(Newser) – A racist bumper sticker warning against President Obama's re-election is popping up all over Facebook, notes the Huffington Post. The sticker tells readers not to "re-nig in 2012," adding in small print, "Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect Obama!" Looks like the sticker comes from a since-removed Facebook page by Stumpy's Stickers, reports WFAA in Dallas.

"Well," writes Jenée Desmond-Harris at the Root: "So much for subtle, covert racism, and so much for people who can't stand Obama because he's black making up other reasons to justify their opposition."
