Black Hole Screams “Racism!”

A run of the mill county commissioners meeting in Texas became a perfect example of idiots who are yearning to be offended at every opportunity.

Commissioner Keneth Mayfiled, who is white, said “It sounds like Central Collections has become a black hole.” This prompted Wiley Price, who is black, to demand an apology for the “racist” term. He later whined to a reporter about Angel Food Cake being white and Devils food Cake being black. He illustrated his mastery of English by peppering his conversation with the brillant phrase “You know?”

The article suggested using the phrase “singularity,” although if this race-bater isn’t married he’d probably find that offensive as well.

This reminds me of the story a few years ago about PC mouth breathers in Los Angles demanding that equipment manufactures stop using the terms “slave” and “master” for hard drives and other components. It was prompted by a similar idiot filing a discrimination complaint about the terms. The purchasing manager, Joe Sandova, said “We are culturally sensitive and we have 90,000 employees. We have to take these things seriously.” No you don’t. The best way to handle this would have been to tell the complainers “Grow up, shut up and get out of my office, you idiots.”

The Texas situation could be used help clarify definitions in English classes. The teacher could show a representation of a black hole and a photo of Price, then explain, “This is a black hole, and this is an asshole.”
