It seems not everyone in the Republican Party is sticking to the message and helping to portray the party as modern and, well, not racist.

At the Texas Republican Convention this past weekend, the Dallas Morning News' Trail Blazers blog reports, one vendor was selling the pin that appears with this post. (If you can't see the photo, the pin reads, "If Obama is President... will we still call it The White House?")
