    Ah, so now I'm closed-minded because I don't by your baseless assertions?

    Its a question, not an assertion.

    It's a question, but you are making an assertion by asking it considering that there is nothing in the story saying anything about race.

    True, but an assertion based on past experience with the media that reports white on black crime as racially motivated while reporting black on white crime as, well, just crime.

    But this isn't a racial issue at all. Race has absolutely nothing to do with it. The officer thought the sign could be seen as a possible threat, as seen from the article here:

    The police officers who stopped Oklahoma City motorist Chip Harrison and confiscated a sign from his car told him he has a right to his beliefs, but the Secret Service "could construe this as a threat against President Obama," according to the incident report released this morning.
    Again I ask, what does race have to do with that? What kills me is that you accuse the media of unfairly calling things racially motivated yet here you are doing the exact same thing with this story even though there is nothing to suggest it.

    There's nothing to suggest it since the story is incomplete. Do you deny that race would be mentioned if the officer was white and the driver black?

    Absolutely. Then again, I don't pull the race card at every single instance. The race of the people involved has nothing to do with it. It's the context of why the guy was pulled over and it's clear from the story that it's because the officer perceived tat the sticker could be considered a threat by secret service. That's it. Nowhere does it mention race at all. You and only you are bringing that into the story. Now that we've cleared that up you should probably try to stay on topic.
