    Bingo. It is annoying victim/social justice crap that just continues to be a barrier to society actually meeting the ideal of Dr King's I have a dream speech.

    When I was a wee lad I asked my mother why there are black people and brown people. Her answer, stuck with me.

    Sure, its childish simplicity, but that shaped my view of people as individuals who happen to be.... vs black people white people etc etc. The overt racism paranoia bull**** just gets old right fast.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    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?
    Senator Robert Byrd claimed he did, in fact, change. Did he? Only he knows, and he's not talking anymore. I suspect that any such deeply held hatred is difficult to over come. We should all hope that Byrd did in fact over come it if for no other reason than it would demonstrate a personal triumph against the odds stacked deep in his heart.

    It would have been all good if it was a Town's Black Police Official Calling Obama N-Word, I suppose.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    very broad brushed..
    and besides.. black people never think racist things.. ever.. never a joke or slur.

    You have to be kidding me....


    THIS is what constitutes "Breaking" News to be run by one of the biggest media outlets in the country?

    I love how many white people say stuff like this as if they would ever even consider socializing with the people in those neighborhoods anyway.

    What the hell is the retirement age in New Hampshire anyway?

    It seems it is always a thin line here between being overly politically correct and correctly calling a racist a racist.

    In this situation though as a acting member of the police dept you are held to a higher account than the general public. If you don't like that then you need to remove yourself from the police dept, simple.

    Or maybe he should have said "Uncle Tom"

    As when this happened -

    After calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas an "Uncle Tom" recently, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) defended his comments to CNN, saying, "But I'm black."

    Imagine that.

    This sounds familiar with old people who haven't evolved into the modern day.

    Copeland should have not used that term by any means,

    but then on the other hand - Jane O'Toole should not have been eavesdropping either!
