    Probably not, even then it would tell you the people and places to avoid.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Her consituency? No. Unwitting voters who may not know any better? I hope so.

    But the state's Government Accountability Board voted to bar that wording, agreeing with a staff recommendation that it is pejorative and therefore not allowed."

    Should this be allowed? I agree with a point made in the article. If a white person stated, 'NOT the 'blackman's b----.'', there would be no question of its racial content.

    i say allow it.....she's making herself clear, and no one in the state assembly would work with her if by chance she got elected. the people in that district would get exactly what they voted for.

    *Warning*

    This thread is a semantics only, no meat, slightly race related issue.
