Okay...ya know...I try to be as sensitive as I can to the politically correct movement in this country. BUT sometimes people, and by people I mean African-Americans, and by African-Americans I mean Black people, take it way too far.
I read the following article on FoxNews.com this afternoon and it just blew me away.
Texas County Official Sees Race in Term "Black Hole"
I mean, seriously?!?! A white person make a comment about a department being a black hole for paperwork and a black person takes offense at that? Please! And to demand an apology for the racist remark? I shake my head....
Then the idiot....yes, I called Mr. John Wiley Price, who's a black man, an idiot....went on television in Dallas and said that he thought other terms were racist.
"So if it's 'angel food cake,' it's white. If it's 'devil's food cake,' it's black. If you're the 'black sheep of the family,' then you gotta be bad, you know. 'White sheep,' you're okay. You know?" Price said.
I mean, seriously....how do you make the leap from someone making a derogatory comment like calling someone the "N" word and someone calling a local government department a black hole. To me this is straight up ignorance...that's what I have a problem with...it's not someone's skin color...it's the fact that they're just ignorant. This sounds like a sad attempt at making someone out to be a bad guy and get attention for yourself.
Oh well...I'm off to make a racist devil's food cake this weekend....
