The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Now Racist: Black Holes!

An enlightened look at the increasing lack of intelligence found in many local governments here in the good old U.S.A.:

County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."

That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.
Just think, folks:—While you're all out there, arguing over who you want to elect as President, imbeciles like these are being re-elected to our county boards and city councils; election after election, year after year.

But hey, why let idiocy like that bother us? We've obviously decided that, rather than electing local governments best suited to our personal and specific needs (you know, the whole "deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed" part?), we'd rather live amongst a byzantine, centralized Soviet bureaucracy that is wholly unaccountable to We, The People.

It was Bolshevism that George Washington was fighting for, wasn't it?

"That asshole gave me a black eye!"
"Excuse me! He gave you a [i]white[/i] eye! Apologize!"

"I'll bet it all on 26 black."
"Excuse me! You'll be it all on 26, [i]white[/i], thank you!"

"I'd like the 2008 Ford Focus in black, please."
"Excuse me! I think you'd like it in [i]white[/i]."

now tell me if any of that makes any sense

Guffaw. You forgot the most obvious one, though:

Into phone line: "Yes, I'd like to report a blackout?"

Operator (rudely): "Excuse me! I think you mean to report that you having a [i]white[/i] out!"

Then again, the whole concept of a "white out" seems to be indistinguishable from ACTUAL campaign policy these days. Times sure do change, eh?

Someone please just SHOOT ME NOW!!!!!

I am offended by the whiteout, and white cars, and white squares on bingo cards. I am offended at white paint, white clouds, white paper, white stars, and White Snake. I want all sidewalks and all dry-erase boards painted neutral colors.

Brian, even this comment section's color is a racist insult to me as it is "white".

Let's recall all chess boards which have white and black, because it is racist black always goes second.

Also, when I played basketball the coach, who was black, told our point guard( who was black) when we needed to hold the ball never to throw it to Jerry, who was white, because he was a "Black Hole" who shot everytime he got his hands on the ball on the offensive end

I guess the coach was a closet racist who devoted his time to us teenagers
