Black Holes and race baiting

You know, it’s hard to get work done when there is so much stupidity in the world.

Folks, here we go again. As I have said before, the new Obama-era is going to trigger a landslide of bizarre behavior from blacks, and here is just the latest example.

While in a Dallas city council meeting, a councilman was discussing how paperwork entering a department was getting lost, and he described it by saying “it’s like central collection is becoming a black hole.” Scientifically a “black hole” is a collapsed star whose gravity is so strong, nothing can escape. No light is emitted, and thus the object is totally dark, hence "black."

Two black councilmen sitting near him were offended by the reference to a "black hole", which they believed was clearly a “racist” comment. And, they demand an apology.

“In this day and age, with diversity, you don’t go around making that kind of comment.”

Hey, it’s part of God’s creation: God must be a RACIST!

The commissioner explained it this way. “It’s like angel cake, and devil cake. If it’s white, it’s angel cake. If it’s black, it’s devil cake. If you barter, that’s good. But if you Jew someone down, that’s bad. ‘Hey, I thought it was alright!’ NO, NO IT’S NOT!”

Oooh, great logic!

Now, let’s be real about this. There very well may be some phrases that are anachronistic vestiges of the era of Slavery, and therefore could conceivably perpetuate a discriminatory meaning. "That's the pot calling the kettle black" is one of the phrases. "Cracking a whip" is another that always makes me a little uncomfortable in "diverse" settings. The other day, a black coworker used the phrase regarding the white project manager. I cringed...should I have been offended? Was he calling her a "massa"? A "cracker"? I don't think so. I think he was just using a common idiom and had no hidden agenda.

But of course, it's ok, because he's black. What if SHE had used that phrase?

Well, this is so irritating; I’m just going “to call a Spade a Spade.” (is that an offensive term? Doesn't it just refer to cards?)

Commissioner Wiley is either one ignorant dumb ass, or is a classic race-baiter.

Maybe we should put him on a “BLACK LIST”. I hope this issue does not leave the other commissioner with a "BLACK EYE".

It might even put a "BLACK MARK" on his record.

I guess it's racist for doctors to carry a "BLACK BAG".

We need to redefine the term "IN THE BLACK" for your budget: it used to be a good thing, but now it must be racist.

Why? Because in this day and age, "we have diversity."

This most recent stupidity takes place just days after Jesse Jackson blasted Obama for "talking down to black people", making Jackson want to "cut his nuts off". See, apparently it's degrading for a black candidate to speak to other blacks and say that they need to take some responsibility for their own actions. Quit talking down to them, Barry! They can't take care of their own problems, don't you know? They are too busy "driving while black"!

And then there was the article from Brittain, in which it was decided that children who say "yuck" to ethnic food they are not familiar with are "racist". That's right!!! If you introduce your child to jerk chicken or boiled mustard greens, and the child doesn't like it--the child is a RACIST!

That's like saying the child is a racist if he is scared of the dark!
