|The Getty Images photograph was taken on Friday at a Romney/Ryan campaign event in Lancaster, Ohio.
According to Buzzfeed, a Romney spokesperson "commented that the shirt was reprehensible and has no place in this election."
This is not the first time in recent weeks that racism has been directed towards President Barack Obama.
On Tuesday, The Huffington Post reported that "a spate of symbolic protests against [the president] that have featured empty chairs and racist imagery continued this week in California, with an arrangement featuring a noose, watermelons and a birther sign."
"Go back to Kenya you idiot," read the sign that was reportedly set up along a remote road in Santa Clara County, Calif.
