A vendor at the Collector’s Classic Gun Show in Sioux Falls was caught selling a horribly racist photo meant for target practice, showing the outline of a black man with the words “Official RUNNIN’ N****r Target.”
Not only this, but when he was confronted about it by local News station KSFY, he defended the practice by saying:
They are just targets. You know… there are some black people, and then there are N****s. What’s the big deal? I sold over 500 of them this weekend.
He was selling the piece of paper for only 10 cents each.
The organizer for the gun show, Bob Campbell, said he did not know about this, and when he found out said that he will make sure this kind of thing does not happen again.
I take pride in the work I do and the quality of the shows I put out. And, I’m very disappointed, and disgusted to see what was on that table.
Banning him is a start. But, what’s probably even more troubling is the fact that he sold over 500 of them in a span of only 2 days. This says a lot about the people from good ole’ South Dakota.
