    Excuse me I have something to say here, I did not intend to use the term "nigger" to be any kind of racial, cultural, or social slur in any way. The comment was not directed any one group or person in particular, I used the term adding "itude" on the end because I intended it to be taken entirely humorously, making fun of myself and the town I lived it. If I, a black boy from Georgia and Arizona, who drinks while I shoot, shoots while I drink, kills and eats animals I find in my backyard, who smokes, dips, and drinks whiskey all at the same time can't use the word "nigger" as a joke in reference to a funny story, well then I don't know what the world's coming to.

    Discrimination against minorities is making a comeback; I find it very ominous that conservative municipal and state-level politicians and community leaders are now finding it politically advantageous to be openly racist.
    and I find in disturbing when the race card is played to hide the real issue. IMO that was not the case with the mural. It is in the case of SB1070.

    Hi all. New here.
    I live in Prescott. This whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. It isn't about race, it never was. The people involved have their own agenda. They figure by calling the opposition racists and bigots they will silence them. The former mayor Jack Wilson has a major axe to grind with Councilman Blair. Here's the woman spearheading the recall of our Councilman. Blog Our RE Director Seems she and her group have nothing better to do than find something to protest! I'm just doing my part to help spread the truth!
