image for Legions of American Racists Back Obama

It turns out that most racists are also sexist. In a shocking move, racists across the United States have come together to offer their support to Presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

The organization, called Racist Americans For Barack Obama (RAFBO) was started by an anonymous group of southern racists who wanted to be the latest to jump on the Obama bandwagon.

Obama has lately developed into a speeding freight train that no one can slow down. Especially not a white woman.

A spokesperson for RAFBO told reporters that its members agree that they "would vote for a black person over a woman any day."

Most of the members of RAFBO are white males, and the membership numbers are growing rapidly.

At press time, over 300,000 Americans had signed up on RAFBO's website, pledging both their racism and their allegiance to Barack Obama.

"I'm flattered by their response," Obama told reporters. "I'm also a bit surprised by the number of people who identify themselves as racist. But supporting me is obviously a step in the right direction."

In order to join RAFBO, candidates must take a quick 10 question survey on the website. After they submit their results, they will learn whether or not they are truly racist. The questions on the survey include "Would you ever vote for a black President?" and "Would you ever work for a black person?" A candidate must score at least 50% in order to be considered a true racist.

RAFBO's creator said that his organization "just makes sense. Look at Barack Obama versus the other candidates. Most of us voted for Bush the last two times around, and now our candidate has become our scapegoat. With Obama, we have a built-in scapegoat. If we like what he is doing, we can attribute his efforts to his white side. If we disapprove, it's obviously because he is part black. It's really a win-win situation for us."

RAFBO hopes to have at least 500,000 members by the end of the week.

"We know that at least half of the United States has a little racist in it. We are trying to bring out that racist and use it for good," another anonymous RAFBO official proclaimed.

A spokesperson for Hillary Clinton has said that her last hope now is that the sexists of America, a population considered to be just as large as the racist population, will come forward and back her.
