Well allow me to retort

Oh sure, I could just throw up some random video that - while pretty cool - violates the Baron's iron-clad rule of contributing to a broader understanding of our political zeitgeist. Instead, I've got a doozy from the local Dallas political scene that predates a story making the rounds in the conservative blogosphere.

Which is not to be confused with the Blagosphere - which science has defined as a field of corruption in Chicago so strong integrity is unable to exist.

The hot topic du jour is the Los Angeles NAACP complaining to Hallmark about a graduation card because its message is perceived to be a slight at black females. After three or four years on the market, an animatronic card referencing a "Black Hole" was heard by the science wizards at the NAACP as "Black Ho". This is, of course, a moral outrage. Hallmark chose to pull the offending card off the shelves rather than instituting a "Seriously? Just exactly how stupid are you?" defense.

If the NAACP has seen far it's because they stand on the shoulders of giants. Giant idiots. Meet Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price:

Wait, he's not done yet:

Who could have thought professing an ignorance of astronomy that would evoke mockery from a typical 8th grader eventually ends up being the kind of issue that gains legs? It's not Song of the South, but how long before Disney is forced to apologize for this:

You know what they say about jumping in a wallow to wrestle a pig - you're gonna get dirty, and the pig likes it.

Well, I lean toward the right, of course, but, I must say, Hallmark has been pretty niggardly in its response.

Since black holes have been around for billions of years and humans only for a few tens of thousands, Black Ho's look like black holes.

Well, Disney should have apologized for that movie a long time ago, but it has little to do with the term or concept of a Black Hole.

As a fellow Dallas resident (Thank God I live in the Metroplex and not in Dallas proper) I am ashamed at the stupidity of this guy.

Until we get rid of idiots who bristle at every term that involves the word "Black" or "White" we will NEVER get rid of racial discrimination.

Regarding John Wiley Price, why rename something a "White Hole" because you are insecure about your skin color. Grow up you idiot and do the job you were elected to do instead of wasting time on stupid straw men arguments.

I'll give you "black hole" ... (Below threshold)

I'll give you "black hole" as racist, as soon as you also admit that "White Men Can't Jump" is also a racist movie against whites. Hey, if you can be offended by color as a descriptor, so can I.

Idiocy knows no color.
