Barack Obama Halloween Mask Listed As a Terrorist Costume
The word “terrorist” isn’t used in the item’s description or keywords. So the fault doesn’t fall on the manufacturer. Obviously an authorized Amazon Seller who works with Amazon has a hidden agenda and categorized the Obama Halloween costume mask as a “terrorist costume” on their own.
Here’s a screenshot of the Amazon page in case someone at Amazon reads this article and takes it down before you can see the listing for yourself.
Is This Racist?
Regardless of how you feel about the Democrats or Barack Obama, calling him a terrorist is going too far. In my opinion, it’s racist. I hope Amazon suspends the Amazon Seller responsible for this.
