Banned anti-welfare board game re-released to feature ‘Obozo the Marxist clown’

Banned anti-welfare board game re-released to feature ‘Obozo the Marxist clown’

An image from Obozo’s America (Pic via obozosamerica.com) A board game that was banned in the 1980s will be re-released as “Obozo’s America: Why Bother Working for a Living?” The game features insulting stereotypes about welfare recipients as well as a depiction of a “Marxist Clown… juggling Hope and Change balls.” The board game’s creator, Bob Johnson, says in a statement that the game “was forced off the retail market in the 1980s by government officials working with the NAACP, NOW, and other welfare ‘rights’ groups.” According to a press release announcing the rerelease of the game: “Obozo’s America” is essentially the same as “Public Assistance” with these new features: the “Welfare Promenade” is now “Obozo’s Welfare Promenade;” each of the 50 Welfare Benefit cards and each of the 50 Working Person’s Burden cards begins with “Obozo Says;” and, an image of Obozo the Marxist Clown, juggling Hope and Change balls, appears in each of the corners.
