Default Black Hole

Redefining the term:

http://nicedeb.wordpress.com/2008/07...a-racist-term/

" A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.

County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections “has become a black hole” because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud “Excuse me!” He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a “white hole.”

That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy."


Discuss.

As a black man* I find this thread title incredibly offensive and demand that it is changed and a new apology thread is made.






*not really black

Are they going to force the scientific community to change the astronomical term as well? They sure don't look white to me.

People can be pretty stupid.

From this point forward I demand that I be referred to as a German-American. Call me anything else and I'll get Jesse Jackson (or in my case EdWort) involved - and you won't like the results.

People can be so mind numbingly stupid sometimes. How anyone of any intelligence can hear the term black hole and not know what it means is beyond me. To not know what it means and to think that it's a racial remark should be grounds for sterilization. For a judge to demand and apology should result in the judge being disbarred for his ignorance.

Lol. The thing that gets me is how far our justice system has gone into the dare I say "Black Hole"*. I mean seriously. Like I have said in the past, "Idiocracy" is the prophetic movie of our time. . I will go so far as to make a prediction that if the economic pressure continues in this nation, we'll see an uprising of sorts to equalize the nonsense that has a stranglehold on our nation.
