More Race Card Retardation


Yesterday I posted a link about a license plate in Wisconsin being revoked because some paranoid woman thought it was racist.

The plate read: DYNGR

Not only did it take me a while to actually get it (I think?), but only a person constantly focused on race would even notice such a connotation.

Here is another "racist" encounter from Minneapolis:

Woman with daughter kicked off Minneapolis bus blames racism


Last week when Michelle Jordan and her 3-year-old daughter boarded a Jefferson Lines bus in Minneapolis, the driver asked them to move to the back of the bus because he said Jordan's daughter was distracting him by singing to her doll. But Jordan says that as the only black person on a bus of six passengers, she felt singled out because of her race.

In response, Jordan refused to retreat to the back and instead sat in the sixth row of the bus. The driver responded by kicking the pair out of the bus outside a convenience store in Abbotsford, Wisconsin.


1) This is 2009 Minneapolis, not 1960 Birmingham
2) Everyone is not out to get you because you are black.

Said another passenger:

Rebecca Mink, a passenger who boarded in Eau Claire, Wis., said the girl ran in the aisle while her mother talked on a cell phone. "If you want my opinion, it was not a racist issue, it was a safety issue."

Case closed. Gimme a break.

One wonders what the term post-racial means? I thought "the One" was to have brought all this to a complete halt as though is was but a upsetting part of our long ago history?

But when you hear of the congressional black caucus saying they are "impatient" with B. Hussein for not doing enough for 'black' people it is not surprising.
