Cool. What does finding a banana mean in Europe?
Finding a banana on a tree tells you that you're not in Europe.

He wasn't shot where he was found.

Stephen, if you were a prosecuting investigator, suicide being impossible, are you looking for the killer?

Ok, maybe an iq-test for voters is a bit undemocratic and all, but would an iq-test for politicians be a good idea at least?

Cheerios cereal commercial causes controversy because it depicts a mixed race couple with a biracial child. It's only become controversial because of comments on Cheerios Facebook page, which had the comments shut down due to the less than family-oriented nature of the hate-filled comments by people pissed off about race-mixing. I'm not even going to speculate on which race the commenters were because there are elements within white and black races that are against race-mixing, some of them are more specifically against white women with black men. *cough*mywife'srelatives*cough*

Edit: Oops, I forgot to include the commercial:

The Daily Caller being racist probably belongs in the same breath as "Water is wet" and "The pope shits in the woods" but nonetheless this was pretty bad even by their standards:

You Will Definitely Believe How Racist This Daily Caller Article Is

Quote:
The question is can [black] families and communities ever be reconstituted again, and do we have a sufficient number of black leaders who can and are able to shoulder the vision and burdens of a Martin Luther King, Jr.? Can Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton do it? If the answer is no, and I believe it is, then America’s white leadership will have to get rid of them and select their replacements.

Why don’t I suggest that Black Democrats select the replacements? Because Black Democrats are fine for house work, but not for doing heavy lifting. Name one that has put forward a meaningful call to action with a plan to restore the black family and community.

Indeed. The real racists here are the people who insist on seeing racism in racial slurs that, in the Massachusetts of this one old white man's imagination, do not even have racial connotations. Why, he would have said the same thing about Mittens Romney!

Somebody brought a box of Popeye's Fried Chicken to a task force on poverty and economic development meeting and placed it on Rep. Lori Saine's desk. She was overheard saying that it was her 'silent protest' over the outrage over Marble's comments. Rep. Saine (R-North Colorado secessionist) denies this, said she was just eating lunch.

It's just that blatant.

Unfortunately, rightwing American political commentators aren't as subtle as European ones are. You'll go blind trying to read between the lines of the American commentators, because they cleverly hide everything right there in plain sight, at the surface level. :whup:

:sigh:

Why are you real racists always trying to make these things about race? Why, the article that you, yourself, posted not too long ago explained how "nigger" is a race-neutral term, that one might apply to, say, Mitt Romney. It's really too bad that racists like you insist on seeing race everywhere.
