A bar in Louisiana has the audacity to believe it's okay to use a hand stamp at the door that reads"nigger" spelled backwards. Taylor Ward, a freshman at LSU, got Twitter fired up when she tweeted this picture from Reggie's Bar in Baton Rouge:

At first glance, it says "Reggin" but...

“After I noticed that the stamp spelled nigger backwards, I immediately showed my friends,” Taylor Ward told Clutch Magazine. “We decided to bring it to the manager’s attention. However, all he had to say was, ‘It’s a stamp,’ so we left.”

So, was she singled out because she's black? Taylor says, hell yeah! But the manager claims "Reggin" is slang for going to Reggie's and that everyone gets the stamp.

But folks aren't buying his explanation, especially after seeing this pic of a Confederate flag hanging in the corner of the bar.

“I just don’t understand why we’re still having to deal [with] racist incidents like this in 2015,” Taylor said.
We don't understand why either, Taylor. It's sickening.
