Comment of the Day: You Might Be a Racist

Categories: Whatever

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

There are certain topics that just naturally create controversy. Some, like whether or not chili should have beans, are specific to blogs here at the Press, while other items, like racism and abortion, are universal fire starters. Our Jef With One F wrote about the five ways to tell if you are being racist on the Internet and, naturally, a comment war raged.

Wow, some of you really love clinging to your racism like a favorite, but battered and useless old coat.

You know what? Some people are asshole criminals who target other people. And those assholes and victims come in all colors, ethnicities, creeds, genders, orientations...

Why do you feel the need to say "blacks target whites"? I guarantee you plenty of whites target blacks, Hispanics, Asians, poor people, etc. By making that statement, you pretty much stamped "racist douche" on your forehead.

This comment makes my head hurt a little.  Let me get this straight: You are calling out the commenter because she needs to clean up her own community before calling out other communities for not cleaning themselves up?  Presumably, you have fully internalized your own logic and made sure there was no racism or crime in your own community before typing that comment, right?

Obviously someone is not watching the news and has their head stuck firmly in the sand. The rest of us are watching and seeing what's being reported and has been going on in our city. You need to stop playing the third grade game of pointing fingers, saying "he does it to." If you want to make a stand; this is the time to shout- "Not in MY community anymore. This has to stop."Until that time, you're still part of the problem.


What's wrong you delete what you don't like in your little PC mind ??????????
