Too funny.It's a black hole, dark, no light gets out.

Got a problem with jew fish, ok, fine, I get it. I've been calling them that for too long to change now. But this is a black hole.

What are you supposed to call it, an African American hole? ;?

So you're blaming Bush for this based on your premise that the President causes it?

There are some strange things about color that people just don't quite get correct.
Black is not a color. It is the absence of color. Black surfaces absorb all wavelengths and do not relect any wavelength. White is the presence of all wavelengths and is, therefore, a color. It is strange that black people have been refered to as being colored when it is the white people who are actually colored.
The colors on water faucets are backwards. Blue has a shorter wavelength than does red. Blue has, therefore, more energy than does red yet we put the red on the hot water and blue on the cold water.

I wonder if people would consider the term "white hole" insulting to white people. Some astronomers suggest that there may be white holes that eject all the stuff sucked in by the black holes. I am personally not insulted by each and every mention of my ethnic background as are some people. I am part of what was once a minority officially recognized by the US government and have never been upset when someone mentioned that fact.

What's truly sad is how every time a white person says something that a black person can turn racial they hop on it. It's hillarious how the black guys werent even intelligent enough to know what a black hole refers too. The white guy clearly meant nothing racial by his analogy. And they wonder why racial tensions will never improve, JMHO.

I am offended by those who get offended over NOTHING AT ALL... Those people make me sick, those people are a waste of good genetic material. Stick the diversity where the sun doesn't shine, and grow thicker skin..

The term Black hole is only racist if you stick the word @$$ in the middle.

I have certainly seen a few that come mighty close. Most people are various shades of brown.

Some people get significant ecconomic and political rewards by claiming to be offended. Looking for ways to claim being offewnded has turned into a very lucrative profession.

Very tired of this "racist finger pointing " and as a result I am becoming more apathetic about it. The older I get the less concernedI am about being politically correct, my opinions are formed by my own life experiences with people, this allows me to sift thru the BS I hear. I find it very difficult to force someone to like you, and feel that too many cries of racist and prejudice are hampering the abilty to assimilate the various groups. For the most part the people who raise these issues are less diplomatic than the people they complain about.

Good people, no matter what race they are, are the people I want to know and have as friends and associates, the rest can jumpin the lake for all I care.

Just another notch in the "pussification of America". We are truly doomed.

Truely a double standard here in the United States. I have always been astonished at all the "Black Student Unions" that dot many of the Universities and Colleges across this country. Try having a "White Student Union" and watch what happens...

Had an Africa-American angry over the fact that all the warning labels on my scaffolding and ladders used a black human figure to warn against danger. He said all the time, "Why's it always the black man they show getting into trouble?" I was in my boat not long after and sure enough, black guy is getting his foot cut off by the propeller.

As long as you have truly stupid people such as this moron from Texas perpetuating racism, there will NEVER be acceptance. Where are all the great ethnic spokesmen like Al Sharpton (now THERE'S a misnamed individual..SHARPton)? Sharpton should be criticizing that guy for his negative portrayal of his race. I'll bet ol' Al defends this bozo.

Uh, Bugster, what's pink...........?
