If he was good at his job then he wasn't a token.


He was the only black dude in the Operations department, so I guess their argument was he was the department's token black guy. He did the aux building tour. Beyond that I don't remember much about him.

In the meantime, black gang-bangers and wannabees are shooting each other and any innocent BLACK women, children & babies who just happen to get be in the way when they "spray & pray" because someone was wearing the wrong color shirt or their fingers were in the wrong shape (gang signs)...

The Redneck Bubbas in Bedsheets couldn't kill this many blacks with all the rope in the old English navy, but the NAACP will get its colon in a knot over some stupid graduation card because one of their members with black-eyed peas in his ears thinks they heard an insult. Jeez-Louise! All of those cards sound like Charlie Brown's teacher.

Get this through your stupid, thick heads... sometimes people don't like you because you are an idiot and it has nothing to do with the color of your skin! The reality is, 99% of white America doesn't care about your color. If we avoid you, it is because you are obnoxious, loud, and annoying. It might also be because of your well-earned reputation for going-off at the drop of a hat, pulling out a gun and shooting indiscriminately. In Indianapolis, I know that Black Expo and Circle City Classic will each have at least ONE story of some knuckleheads having a disagreement because someone bumped into someone else or "dissed" someone and out come the 9mm's and POP-POP-POP!

I am so sick and tired of the "Knife & Gun Club" in the Emergency Department. That is the biggest threat to the African American community and it has nothing to do with racism.

freetomato: I worked briefly (less than 7 months then I moved on for more $) in marketing for a company that makes an extremely delicious light ranch salad dressing in a jar (sold in the veggie section of the market), headquartered in the deep south. I was the admin puke with no authority or respect, so when given the very bland company newsletter, I dove in and took charge and jazzed it up. Added graphics and space fillers (trivia, news to use, etc) to fill the blanks. After the second month, the admin puke in retail (who tacked on the retail stats) decided to get creative and add something "cool" and "interesting" to her portion. She added "the origin of the term "to be fired", as in, in ancient Scotland, an undesirable group's (aka "clan's) soddy would be set aflame to chase them out (how freakin' motivational....ya' bonehead.) Anyway, it got published. The production floor, 99% black here in the deep south, read it. Some of them FLIPPED...THE.....FARK....OUT.... They saw "clan" and "fire" and the entire factory shut down. They interpreted the worst, most obscure meaning into a harmless (albeit poorly thought out)article. The blacks in the offices, the white collar employees, were not offended or outraged to my knowledge, in fact, they seemed embarrassed by the turmoil. Things did calm down, and to this day, you, the consumer, enjoy your Light Ranch dressing.

Yeah, but I bet they spit in it.


I don't mean to make any judgement or profound statement, merely an observation. Granted, the chick posting the story about the origin of "being fired" was an insensitive bonehead, to my CA-raised self, this was a dynamic that caught me off guard. It struck me as extreme hypersensitivity to an innocent faux pas. If I am wrong, I trust I will be corrected on this forum.

That was neither boneheaded nor a faux pas, that was overestimating the intelligence of one's audience. If I owned the company and was inclined to set fire to my money, I'd be tempted to apologize profusely, tell them that as an act of penance I'd be shutting down production for a couple of months, that I hoped everyone enjoyed their unpaid vacation, and that if any future insensitivity disrupted company harmony that I'd close the company permanently rather than risk offending anyone else.

Violent crime is bad for local businesses.

Crime creates poverty.

"Hey Steve, there's this awesome new Ethiopian place on E. 99th!"

"I dunno, Rachel. Isn't that where that guy got his brains turned into a Jackson Pollock painting for spilling a cup of coffee on the parking lot?"

"Well, maybe. But it was two blocks away and the convenience store was getting robbed, so maybe he meant to shoot the other guy!"

"Two whole blocks, huh?"

*pulls up crime statistics for the zip code of the Ethiopian joint*

"Rachel?"

"Yes, Steve?"

"You like Applebee's, don't you?"

{REUTERS} - Apparently, nobody much gives a f*ck if you mow your lawn or not or get tattoos and don't wear a shirt so long as you aren't shooting at them.

FYI: It's Ku Klux Klan. Notice there is no "C" in it. Oh yeah, they're idiots.

We had a case at IUPUI in Indianapolis of a custodian who was also taking college classes reading a book about the rise and fall of KKK as background for one of his classes. It was a historical look at the Klan in Indiana, how it grew to almost control the State's government and how it was eventually destroyed because of the excesses of its leader.

You guessed it, one of the other custodians, African American, "flipped the FARK out" (I like that expression), and complained to the supervisor. The student/custodian was reprimanded for being "insensitive" and banned from reading or bringing any books with him to read on his breaks. Eventually, higher administration told the complainer that his complaint was not valid, to shut up and get back to work... or something along those lines.

The biggest problem with these racism attention whores is that when REAL cases of racism happen, they won't be addressed because people will think it's just another "cry wolf" moment. The biggest enemy of African Americans is the damage done to them by the race-baiters and attention hounds who claim to be their "leaders."

lisarenee3505: ghostfart: ZeroCorpse: Why am I the only one who watched this and wondered, "What part of this story is FOX News lying about?"

Because this is the NAACP, and this is FOX News. No way is FOX News being "fair and balanced" about this. They're omitting something, or distorting it somehow to suit their agenda, or just plain making shiat up.

I'd like a second source for this before I condemn the NAACP. Forgive me, but I'm not going to take FOX News' word for it on anything, because they're a pack of lying assholes that would sell their own grandmother Roger Ailes if it got them ahead on the network.

FOX News is where you go when integrity is your lowest priority as a "reporter".

Here ya go (new window)

Plenty of other news outlets are reporting it as well.
But don't let that stop your liberal outrage

I think the term you are looking for is "reasonable speculation", not "liberal outrage." Hey, don't get all butthurt just because some of us don't trust a network best known for fabrication, lies, and conservative spin.


And you trust the networks best known for fabrication, lies, and liberal spin?

The two party system allows for a few things.

1. - It lets the fringe elements of the two ostensibly disparate philosophies to define themselves by giving them a defined, philosophical environment with walls to bounce off of.

2. - It keeps the delusion that you have concrete choice. It's like going to the town's only ice cream parlour and they got vanilla and vanilla with sprinkles and signs are everywhere extolling the virtues of each and you can have vanilla, vanilla with sprinkles, vanilla with sprinkles, hold the sprinkles, sprinkles or vanilla with sprinkle layers, but you are f*cking well getting your ice cream here.

3. - It allows each party to put their dog on their ponies without losing anybody's interest because "there's something going on with THAT dog and pony", which, obviously, is not like the OTHER dog and pony.

It's not easy to create an artificial socio-econonmic environment for the masses that will keep them engaged while you skim off all the cream.

Imagine what a relief it was for the ruling class when we all started pointing at any shmuck who could afford a suit and a nameplate and saying "Well, I guess they're the government!", and started doing it for them.

B A: Weaver95: ChicagoFarker:
Sounding intelligent, and being intelligent are two different things. The NAACP rep sounds neither and is doing the black community a disservice.

I don't understand why the NAACP hasn't dissolved. pack it in, shut down. prop of their feet and kick back for a while. they won - they've got a black man into the white house. why are they still around?

'Cause they're jus equal. They want to be MORE equal.


Many believe they are less than equal, thou they are not, but spend a lot of time thinking that. It's self repression I've seen it over and over. I also hear many being deviously racist against a lot of other races, and thinking that's acceptable, but if you call them out, you catch hell like you just did all the name calling you're self to them and the others.. Most are Especially racist to Hispanics in Chicago. You also hear a lot of N'ga this and N'ga that, but some how that's ok to call each other it. It's a perpetuated issue among most blacks to just tear each other down and hate on others like they we're the cause of their own repressed senses. I do however know a few good people that got their head out of their arse, and won't tolerate that mode of thought.

I think everyone's equal until they prove to treat you unequal or behave with intolerance to anyone else.

- Act stupid, and treat others as if they are stupid, then you'll be stupid.

A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.
County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.
Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."
That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.
Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster's, is perhaps "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape."
Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.

Part 2:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-akk3gog34


I skipped most of the thread to reply to this, but in case it hasn't already been pointed out - John Wiley Price is about six times dumber than Al Sharpton and five times the racist.

He is a toolbag of the highest order.

BolshevikMuppet: Beyond that, there are any number of studies which show that even in an era lacking in overt racism, racism still exists when it comes to subtle choices, and times when an employer can choose to hire a white guy or black guy of equal qualifications. One need only check out a random sampling of EEOC complaints to see racism alive and well in economic environments.

Keep in mind that the cases the EEOC speaks of publicly (read: when the EEOC releases press releases) are the most blatant and extreme examples of discrimination on the basis that they cover... including race. Don't just Google 'EEOC race lawsuit' because you're going to find people who has called a press conference to announce their intention to file an EEOC Complaint... and, in the process, have alerted their employers very publicly of their intentions to do so.

While you're at it, look at the EEOC's Enforcement Statistics On Race-Related Charges... and realize that over 60% of the complaints of discrimination filed with the EEOC on the grounds of Race and Color are dismissed for either insufficient evidence or flat-out lying from the people who file them...

... and, by pure sheer coincidence, over 60% of the complaints for Race and Color discrimination filed with the EEOC are filed by Blacks (I can't give you the source for THIS bit of information because I'm not at work).

Oh, and those people who call press conferences to say that they're going to complain to the EEOC about their employers? EVERY SINGLE ONE THAT I'VE FOUND has been Black.

BolshevikMuppet: Impudent Domain: No Such Agency Quote 2010-06-12 05:25:54 AM
OK.. people still ARE racist. Racism is still a big problem for every visible minority, many of whom are also racist against each other. Non-blacks do and say terrible things to blacks in North America every day, just because they're black, and the black community still faces endemic social problems as the sad legacy of centuries of oppression.

You say all that like it is proven, but I am not so sure just how much endemic racism still exists. Sure you can find some ignorant convenience store clerk who belongs to the Klan, but that tard has no power or influence.

How much of the ills of Black society are from racism and how much are from an attitude of petty criminality, trying to game the system, and always looking to government instead of relying on yourself?

Wow. I'm sorry, man, but you're full of crap. There are self-avowed members of the KKK in the Republican party. Hell Robert Byrd (the longest-serving U.S Senator) once ran an entire chapter of the KKK in Virginia.

Beyond that, there are any number of studies which show that even in an era lacking in overt racism, racism still exists when it comes to subtle choices, and times when an employer can choose to hire a white guy or black guy of equal qualifications. One need only check out a random sampling of EEOC complaints to see racism alive and well in economic environments.

I'll ignore the whole "rugged individualist" shtick, because frankly if everyone can't see through that we're idiots. We're all the product of the environment around us. Bill Gates was successful due to the opportunities afforded to him by wealthy parents and a privileged upbringing. But, even if we accept that there are lazy, greedy, blacks who are trying to get their money for nothing (and their chicks for free), I'm going to doubt it's a racial thing as much as a "some people are like that" thing.

The whole welfare queens argument wasn't even true when Regan was pulling that bullshiat; it's certainly no more true now.

Dr. Mojo PhD: Yes, because organizations like the NAACP and the UNCF which happen to be widely recognized national institutions should alter their names selected at times when "negro" and "colored" were the accepted, non-derogatory terms. Makes sense to me. I like the added touch of white victimization that you'd be on the "receiving end of a hate-crime", implying that if you called a person what is today a slur but in 1944 when the NAACP was incorporated was not, they would beat you merely and for no other reason than being white.

Has anyone pointed out that the name is racist and it epitomizes hypocrisy yet ? cool, glad of it.
