Racism is alive and kicking in 2009

Written by The Geek on 2009-01-16   

I find it completely amazing at how some people's brains work.  Take, for instance, this guy I met at Dunkin Donuts this morning.  He was going on a huge rant about how his people are oppressed, and how he doesnt understand why the whites get to have off on their holiday.  Oh, did I mention Martin Luther King day is only 3 days away?

How many of you have driven the roads recently?  I don't know about where YOU drive, but I can tell you things are pretty much going to hell in a handbasket on the roads here in South Florida.  I'm sure this isnt the only place, as well.

 

The Men in Blue

You know, they say it takes a special kind of person to be a cop.  I'm wondering if JERK is one of the qualities they are looking for.  How many times have YOU seen your local police bending the law in thier favor?
