    We care about this why?
    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.

    Well, think again if you were one of them.

    Amazing how a biracial kiss featured in a newspaper sparked so much hatred.



    A kiss is just a kiss well, not this one

    By Doug Moore
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    04/19/2009

    ST. LOUIS Their kiss launched an online frenzy.

    This particular kiss wasn't the first for Chris Spencer and his girlfriend, Emilee Murphree. In fact, they are hundreds of smooches into their 21/2- year-old relationship.

    But this kiss, captured in a photo April 10 in the Post-Dispatch's Go! section, quickly attracted 350-plus comments on the newspaper's race blog. Specifically, it wasn't the kiss so much as those doing the kissing that created such buzz.

    Spencer is black. Murphree is white.

    Yeah, theres a few dip****s out there left that get pissy over something like this. But most Americans laugh at racists. A lot. True racists are objects of ridicule. Nothing more. Yes, even here in America.

    Ok I'm curious. What is the point you are trying to make?

    Why care about those that are hating on the couple? I care about society and the progress it makes. This type of blind racial hatred isn't progress.

    There will always be asshats, that these two are married, and happy, means that view has WON.

    A million million years could go by, and there will still to be found... asshats.

    Of course there will be but that doesn't mean their asshat ideas should not be denounced and criticized.

    That race is an illusion, at best a quaint fiction and at worst a vicious lie.

    That's great but saying "there is no spoon" doesn't change the fact that, to 99% of the population, the male is black and the female is white. The spoon exists to most people.

    Really? Have you done a scientific poll on this? What are you backing this up with?

    I just have a hard time believing that there are THAT many racists out and about in this day and age.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to imply they are racists. I meant that majority of the people can acknowledge the fact that each individual is of a different race while being completely accepting of them being together.

    I have no problem with two people of opposite races being together. That doesn't mean I can't acknowledge that both are of a different race.
