    Altered mural fuels racial debate in Prescott

    1.) How does one "mistakenly" complain that the biggest picture on the building is African American?

    2.) I wonder how those bigoted cowards felt using racial slurs at children.

    Sickening.

    Thoughts USMB?

    It's surprising to see something as blatant as that in this day and age. Something like this should be rather open and shut, I don't see any reason to have the skin tones in the mural changed in such a manner.

    It appears that this just isn't Arizona's year for sensible decisions.

    I don't agree with the insults but some of us are getting tired of having our freedom of thought being taken away through PC thought crime enforcment. Why do I have to diverse to begin with. What power on earth demands that I accept this for myself?

    No one has to accept it at all, but hateful words reveals a lack of nuance and sophistication. They reveal one is a rather low-class individual.

    I think he perceived a nuanced form of in-their-face "race baiting" and he got caught taking the "bait"
    Beyond the obvious "intended" purpose of promoting racial harmony, he was pointing out that in the current "atmosphere of tension" it was instead...DIVISIVE. ...if you are really interested in an alternative point of view and not just exploiting the situation for racial purposes.
