'Slaves 4 Sale'

A Missouri man angered his neighbors by posting a “Slaves 4 Sale” sign right above his Confederate flag.
Richard Geisenheyner’s rationale for the racist sign next to the racist flag is a little bizarre:
He wanted to show that he’s no racist.

Geisenheyner regularly flies a Confederate flag in front of his home in Liberty, Missouri. As a result, many people have assumed that he is a white supremacist and that makes him angry.

“If people actually believe that a Confederate flag stands for slavery, well, I might as well be just as stupid as they are,” he told Kansas City TV station WDAF.

... he flies the Confederate flag to make a political statement that has nothing to do with supporting slavery at all.
“It is for people that are tired of the government telling them what to do and what to think,” he said. “That is what a Southern rebel is.”

Not surprisingly, Geisenheyner’s neighbors don’t agree with the hanging of the sign or the reasoning behind it. Steve Plowman told the Kansas City Star that he was appalled by his neighbor’s message.

“I think it’s wrong, very wrong,” Plowman said. “I think somebody needs to have a serious talk with him.”
Other neighbors told WDAF that the flag and the “Slaves 4 Sale” sign were offensive reminders of the pre-civil rights era.

“I remember the signs on the wall that says ‘White only.’ I am that old,” one neighbor who asked not to be identified told the station. “I remember the signs on the wall that says ‘Negroes only entrance here.’”

2. I agree I claim to be peaceful

But I have moments as where I'd like to just use baseball bat therapy on these type clowns.
