“Excuse me!” He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a “white hole.”

Yes, because we know the extreme gravity won’t let light photons arugula escape.

And your taxes go to support these morons.

So it’s the late 60’s, and I’m at what passes for a night club, and I’ve got a date with a hot chick, and I’m patiently waiting to get my drink order in at a crowded bar.

“What’ll it be?”

“A Jack Daniel’s, straight up, and a black Russian.”

I say that, and a hand grasps my right shoulder, and I turn and look at a huge Shaquille O’Neal, sized grimacing black guy, and I think to myself “What the fuck’s with you?”, and he says, in his most menacing tone, “We call them Afro- Russians, now!”

I almost fell on the floor laughing! Guy loved his joke even more than I did! Spontaneous, dare I say it? black humor! We laughed our asses off!

Too bad most folks can’t laugh at this sort of nonsense! Too damned bad.

The coal mine was as black white as night.

Wells Fargo HQ in San Francisco officially outlawed the phrase “flip-chart” sent a memo around and everything, because it was offensive to Phillipinos…….

With his attitude, I’ve said before that Obama is an African-American hole.

The commissioners better not get niggardly with the budget to the central collections office!

/I still can’t believe that the guy who used “niggardly” correctly was punished.

This still isn’t as funny as the black Los Angeles county supervisor who wanted an IT guy fired for referring to “master” and “slave” devices on an IDE chain.

Physics: Black absorbs. White radiates.

Therefore, Physics must be racist. No wonder our politicians think the Earth is Flat.

The real problem seems to stem from African Americans who seem to think that they own the adjective “black” and all that it means, and now have the right to regulate and restrict it’s use. This despite the facts that:

A. They’re not “black”, just varying shades of brown, and
B. “Black” is supposed to be derogatory, which is why we’re all supposed to use “African American” in the first place.

My response to Mister Price would have been, “Your people have already rejected claims to that adjective. It’s not yours anymore.” Somehow, I doubt that would go over very well, but at least it’d be honest.

This still isn’t as funny as the black Los Angeles county supervisor who wanted an IT guy fired for referring to “master” and “slave” devices on an IDE chain.

When, really, the IDE developer who first called them that should have been fired.

And blacklisted. Because in correct use of the terminology, both drives are slaves — the CPU is the master.

In the Arctic and Antarctic, a “white out” is frightening condition when the sky turns white and the world essentially disappears. The ground, the topography, the sky, all looks pure white. You can’t tell up or down, and can navigate only by compass.

White outs are scary as hell, but perhaps they must be abolished as well?

Is the term yellow fever insulting to Asians? Maybe Mexicans are offended by the term for a power shortage — brown out?

Give us a break!

J W Price was once quoted calling whites mother effing honkies.Dallas politics is divided white,black and hispanic.Hardly a day goes by w/o a “race” story in the paper.
