A 25-year-old New York City graduate student is threatening to sue a T-Shirt designer after being assaulted for wearing one of his designs.
The woman bought a $69 shirt from Apollo Braun's Manhattan boutique that bore the words, "Obama is my slave." When she wore the shirt on Tuesday, four teenage girls accosted her - shoving her, pulling out her earphones, and spitting in her face, according to the New York edition of Metro News.
The unnamed woman is reportedly seeking solace by suing Braun - born Doron Braunshtein - for "all he's got," the designer claims. He, of course, is shirking any responsibility for the incident and says that the shirt reflects the views of "ordinary WASPs."
“For a lot of people, when they see Obama, they see a slave. People think America is not ready for a black president,” the Israeli-born designer said.
“I can’t stand Obama,” Braun says, but claims that it's not because the candidate is black. “That’s the only thing I like about him. He opens the door for other minorities.”
“He reminds me of Adolf Hitler,” Braun explained, adding he does not like the Illinois senator because “he is a Muslim” — a myth that Obama apparently cannot escape.
The designer has sold several other anti-Obama styles from his boutique, including shirts with slogans such as “Jews Against Obama,” “Obama = Hitler” and “Who Killed Obama?” as posted on livesteez.com
NOW HOW IN THE HELL SHE GON SUE HIM WHEN OBVIOUSLY SHE DISLIKES OBAMA HERSELF FOR SPENDING SO MUCH MONEY ON THE DAMN SHIRT! WTF??
Dear Kanye You’re letting me down You got the biggest bat in the game But you can’t hit the ball It’s the heavy weight match And you’re off in the corner punchin’ at the wall
Dear Kanye Don’t let us fall You’re at the diplomatic dinner With fine china and all A silver fork in your hand But still you spit and gnaw Greatness is a glass elevator, and so you are, if I recall So use it make some real change not just advertisements at the mall No one needs a light show Just good flows You don’t need a light show Just good flows
Dear Kanye Keep icin those knees And when your paycheck comes Will you remember your busted screen Your crown of thorns is sensational But it’s not what makes you bleed Cause there’s a young man His rhymes set him free He loves what you do but he can’t seem To shake the septic sanction of the streets He’s reading your blog and all he finds are commercials For stuff he’ll never need You have a good idea now put some shoes on its feet And try to make your Loop Dreams a real priority You don’t need a light show Just good flow No one needs a light show Just good flow You don’t need a light show Just good flow
Dear Kanye It’s time to let go You’ve gathered the moss of More than a dozen sullen stones People want music on a real stage Not the one you bring along

WTF? The New Yorker is TRIPPIN An e-mail from the New Yorker to CNN on Friday with an advance copy of the cover said, "Please note that it is satire -- we are poking fun at the scare tactics and misinformation that some have employed to derail Obama's campaign."
