Post Racial America, what a bunch of bull!

I know everyone is talking about what happened to Professor Gates but, that shit goes on twenty-four seven in America. What has me up in arms is what happened on AOL today when my, I don't know what to call him since he is not married to my daughter, he uses partner, my daughter's partner's article appeared on AOL and all of the wack jobs came out of the gutter to post their opinions. Now instead of discussing his website and the genius idea he came up with, too many people started to express crazy thoughts in their posts. It was clear to me that many of these, what most people call just plain racist, are in reality mentally ill. They have literally lost their minds and the only things that come out of their mouths are ramblings of inferior minded people. They are full of fear and have feelings of being less than, they are desperately trying to hide this from the rest of the world by trying to put other people in their place. They dwell in their own personal hell and they are trying to bring the rest of the world down to their level so perhaps they can finally feel good about themselves. People try to ignore them, kum-ba-yah them and show them the error of their ways but this doesn't work because they have a mental illness and should be treated as such and that might mean institutionalizing them, electric shock or in the worse case scenario, a lobotomy.

  3. Yes, that was very shocking.

    I'm trying to come up with something positive to draw out of this terrible experience. Exposing these crazies is a good thing overall -- the more people are aware of what Post Racial America actually looks like, the better. draws a "conservative" crowd, to say the least. I don't want to speak ill of all users and readers, since we saw a lot of comments in our defense from some of them. We also received a lot of contributions from people with email accounts. But you have to be at least a little bit insane to still be using AOL.

    I guess lastly, we have to be grateful that at least in our daily lives -- while not being scrutinized on national news -- we very rarely encounter racism. If it happens, it happens at the checkout counter in the store. Some shoppers presume we belong to two parties, not one.
