  1. So g-mail gives you nice headers like “backpacking in New Zealand” and all I get is advertisements for. . . wait, lemme go check. . . “Cape Horn Boat Repo Sale.”

    Huh. It’s normally ads for gout studies.

  2. because you see thru BO and MO’s manipulations you are a racist? at least you’re not a hater like he is..

    • The sad thing is that people don’t seem to understand or care about the definition of racist anymore. They confuse criticism for something about a person who is black with criticism for a person being black. It’s a pretty big difference and not that hard to figure out. You don’t think maybe they could be confusing this on purpose, do you?

  3. It aggravates me to no end how people misuse the word “racist” and therefore water down its impact. If I were to say that all black people enjoy fried chicken and watermelon, that is a bigoted statement based on racial stereotypes, but is not racist (and I enjoy fried chicken and watermelon, and am demonstrably not black).

    However, if I were to say that all black people are lazy or violent, that WOULD be a racist statement because it implies that there is something inferior or negative about the black race because it is black. It would also be an incorrect statement.

    But legitimate criticism aimed at someone who happens to belong to a minority is not racism.

  4. You wascally wild wasis wiff your butterwy wamb all weady to be fwambeed and dwizzled over inwocent wittle Fwuffy while you wet your whiffle in waptous gwee!
