    A kiss is just a kiss well, not this one

    Who here said that racism in the US was all but dead because a black man was elected President?

    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.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    That (gif image above) was in regards to the interracial relationship itself.

    Now, the hate is another story. WTF is wrong with people?

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    What?

    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    Re: A kiss is just a kiss well, not this one

    Why is what a bunch of yahoos has to say (anonymously) at a newspaper site more telling than this couple of 2.5 years never noticing this kind of disapproval before? Now the story is that St. Louis is such a racist city but they never felt that kind of "racism" before?

    I think just as many black people are against inter-racial relationships as whites are, too. Black women seem to get really pissed off when black guys go for white girls. (See: Waiting to Exhale )

    To me personally, interracial relationships are a non-issue, too.

    Whatever. No matter what rationale you have, it's not worth the argument.

    Very good post.

    You're right, it goes both ways, and when it's anonymous, there is a tendency to lose all manners. I can't help but think, though, that a lot of those feelings are underlying.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
