Plains, Georgia is known for a) being the hometown of former president Jimmy Carter, b) being the hometown of former president Jimmy Carter, and c) being a town where current president Barack Obama is hanged in effigy…
A doll found hanging off a Main Street building in Plains is causing controversy.
Witnesses say it was an image of President Barack Obama with a rope around his neck, and the display was found hanging in one of the city's most recognizable sites dedicated to former President Jimmy Carter.
"It's wrong what they did, but I'm not shocked to hear about it," said Plains resident Trevor Sims. "It's a nice place to live and visit but some people out there don't like it."
Pretty sure that's the tourism slogan for post-racist America.
