Posted By:PageTurner, 7/7/2014 1:48:02 PM

NORFOLK, Neb. — A float comparing President Barack Obama´s future presidential library to an outhouse has drawn criticism from some after it appeared in the Fourth of July parade in Norfolk. It featured a wooden outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" and a figure in overalls standing outside the structure. "I´m angry and I´m scared," Norfolk resident Glory Kathurima told the Lincoln Journal Star. "The float was not just political; this was absolutely a racial statement." Kathurima, an immigrant from Kenya, is raising her 9-year-old daughter in the northeast Nebraska community of roughly 24,000. Parade organizers with the local Odd Fellows lodge

Comments:
I think it´s funny. The Native Bray of the Heartland, as Tom Wolfe might put it. Most popular float in the parade.

So now an outhouse is racist!

I´d bet that if Bambi was portrayed as the MGM lion, someone would yell "racism" because blacks are not naturally blonde!

If you are racist - everything you see has a racial overtone.

If you´re not racist - this is really funny and imaginative.

The "float" was in phenomenally bad taste, it wasn´t racist. Not everything that is in bad taste is racist. The parade´s organizers will review the rules for next year´s parade. That is an appropriate solution. This is a small town on the plains, it is not the same out here as it is in the big cities of the East.

If the gentleman from Kenya is having trouble explaining the float to his daughter that´s probably because he doesn´t understand it himself, so here´s a suggestion.

"Lots of people think Obama´s policies are awful, hence the outhouse."

In the big cities of the east the folks are less tolerant and rude is racist from the right and everything is racist from the left.

Take a look at the "Children as tools for immigration" program, and Riot Squads to stop those who don´t want illegal aliens pouring into their neighborhoods. After all those people want the law obeyed so it requires a riot squad to get those law abiding people under control, right?

Has anyone checked to see whether in this part of Nebraska ´outhouses´ are still in common use? And outside the big cities do they even have the ´comfort´ of an "outhouse" in Kenya? Could be also that the lady from Kenya has never seen nor used one of these "signs of civilization" in rural society.

The hundreds of children who recently arrived in New York City from Central America have encountered a justice system that appears more forgiving than many faced by their counterparts elsewhere. In an immigration courtroom in Lower Manhattan, they have often met judges who have steered them through the legal process with a gentle hand. But challenges mount outside the courtroom, beginning with the seemingly mundane obligations of registering for school and securing health care. Many young immigrants remain unaware of the available support or are afraid to seek it out. In response, the city announced on Tuesday that it would help bring

One quarter of the nation´s 11 million illegals are believed to now reside in the Golden State, with that lawlessness spreading in multiple areas. This month, the feds rounded up nearly $100 million in Mexican illegal cartel cash from 70 Los Angeles garment district collaborators, calling it "the epicenter" of money laundering in the Western Hemisphere. That´s some foreign investment you´ve attracted, governor. More to the point, when California´s voters passed Proposition 187 in 1994, illegal immigrants numbered just 1.3 million in California, with 308,000 of them children, costing taxpayers $3 billion, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Construction has begun on a giant observation tower in the heart of the Amazon basin to monitor climate change. The Amazon Tall Tower Observatory is expected to rise 325m from the ground. Its instruments will gather data on greenhouse gases, aerosol particles and the weather in one of the largest continuous rain forests on the planet. Brazilian and German scientists hope to use the data to better understand sources of greenhouse gases and answer questions on climate change. The tower is being constructed out of steel that was brought thousands of kilometers from the south of Brazil to the site, about 160km

Around 1.5 million Venezuelans have decided to emigrate in search of a better future for their families. The figure accounts to between 4% and 6% of the overall population. Approximately 88% of these expatriates have made up their mind to emigrate over the last 15 years. The Bolivarian diaspora is a reversal of fortune on a massive scale. Through most of the 1960s and 1980s Venezuela was a haven for immigrants, first for refugees fleeing dire living conditions in Europe, mainly Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, then, in the 1980s, for Latin Americans seeking a land of economic prosperity and liberties.

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
