According to footage from WALB-TV, the doll was hanging by a noose in front of a red, white and blue sign that says “Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President.” A witness told the television station that the doll wore a sign with Obama’s name on it.


Local residents are perplexed and not happy to have their town represented this way.

A few people were able to snap pictures of the black doll with the rope hanging off that building right in the center of town before it was taken down.


The doll was hanging on a building on Main Street in Plains.


“I saw this stuffed thing hanging up,” said Alonzo Davis, Plains Resident.


Davis is one of the people who saw the doll hanging off the brick building he said a sign on the front had President Obama’s name on it.


“Why it’s hanging up there,” said Davis.


Why is the question many here are asking.
