The rodeo clown at the Missouri state fair who donned a mask of President Obama and mocked about a bull running him over is guilty of a hate crime, the head of the state's NAACP chapter said in a radio show late Thursday.
She went on, The Blaze reported: "We are taxpayers in the state of Missouri and when taxpayer money is utilized to discredit and be disrespectful to our president, whether he be black, white, Hispanic, Latina ... it is an outrage."
"I think that a hate crime has occurred," Mary Ratfliff said, on KXNT Radio, broadcast out of Las Vegas. "I think a hate crime occurs when you use a person's race to depict who they are and to make degrading comments, gestures et cetera about them."
