If fact, I made reference to it earlier in the thread. If you are trying to say the speech is racist, no I don't agree with you. And I say that because it is not racist in the sense that the motivation is to see the city be strictly one of blacks at the expense of whites. That said, I could see where someone such as you would see it as racist and although I don't agree with that position, I don't think it is unrealistic to view it in that way. And that is my problem with what has transpired in this thread. I can understand what has been forward from the other point of view. I don't think it is unrealistic. But despite me pointing out that there is indeed common usage of the symbols in the cartoon that could lead someone to conclude realistically that it is racist, my view is deemed unrealistic. So unrealistic that is has been ridiculously compared with viewing the vertical lines on a chocolate Hershey bar as representing the bars on a jail cell and thus saying it is racist because it represents blacks and prisons. That is so damn whack that it is beyond whack. And it makes me understand that I was stupid to consider voting Republican, because they are people that just don't get it. They just can't do it.

    That is totally amazing a Hershey bar. Totally ridiculous. Didn't need a Hershey bar, could have used any piece of candy for that matter. And if someone says that's the point, that position is ridiculous as well. There is simply no comparison to that and the cartoon.

    Unless you've finally been the one to discover how to have your cake and eat it too.

    It's fine if you don't want to have a debate over your view point; just don't be shocked when people don't actually hold your view point in any real regard.
    My debating or not over this issue, or any issue, does not make my view incorrect in the slightest. Sure, you are free to think whatever you like but as this is a subjective issue your opinion is your opinion. And I did defend my claim... if you missed that we are already doomed.

    Sure, his ideas are ****. The sniffing part makes it pretty clear. Did you really not understand that chocolate carry's a pretty specific connotation for black people?

    No I do not understand that.

    When Cadbury released an ad promoting their Dairy Milk Bliss bars that read “Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town,” Naomi Campbell was outraged. The supermodel threatened to sue the company and released the following statement: “I’m shocked. It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women. It is insulting and hurtful.”
