    This is the face of racism in America? This guy and Bundy are faces of the right's racism? This explains a lot.

    How does this joke suposedly show an attitude considering that what is made fun of is an inherint trait of a race???

    If anything, comedy mocks such attributes.

    You know shrubnose, I wonder why and how. Why people like this haven't been found out about long ago before they're placed into positions of trust, and how they've gotten through their whole lifetimes being the way they are and never changing their feelings or opinions about other people.

    I have to admit, I've never known a person who has held similar beliefs as this guy, that ever changed. I wonder if people ever do?

There's probably also been a fair amount of racism in police activity in his area due to him as well. That is the saddest part of this.

    That said, the kind of racism demonstrated by stories like this is not the type of racism that concerns me. Such overt racism is mostly a relic of the past and it's literally dying out. What concerns me is the pervasive form of racism in our society that is more covert, or subtle. I'm talking about the type of racism expressed by the vast majority of white Americans where they tell denigrating racist jokes in one breath and then claim to be colorblind in the next.
    Excellent points.

    I highly doubt that you even understand the very concept of work.

    Good day.

    Don't you believe that people don't keep their thoughts and feelings inside of them for years? You know, covertly? Pretending to be accepting while not really being accepting of different people?

    That works great for politics and those who want to live their lives as paranoids.

    It's actually substantiated by a plethora of research on modern racism in the United States which is much more credible than whatever anecdotal evidence forms your views on race.
