    The Democrats are so desperate to oppose Bush they find ridiculous things to complain about.

    Notice the attempt to gloss over the fact that the employee had altered their skin color and thus the awarding of the prize was given thinking it was appropriate hair style.

    Further explain why it would be wrong to award a Halloween costume award to someone in a prisoner uniform? This is grasping at straws.

    More racial insensitivity, from a republican.

    If you can't understand why its inappropriate for a white guy, to paint himself up as a negro gangbanger, and wear a costume as a prisoner, you must live in some racist part of the south. Any job I ever had, I would be reprimanded for dressing like that at an office party.

    I imagine you think it would be funny, for some christian white guy, to dress up as a "money grubbing" Jewish banker with a hook nose, for an office party? I don't. I think you would be fired on the spot


    Its not wonder your party is thought of as racist at worst, insensitive at best.

    Tell that to Robert 'Sheets' Byrd, Jesse 'Hymie Town' Jackson, Al 'Tawana Brawley' Sharpton, and Ray 'a chocolate city' Nagin.

    I have no idea what you're babbling about.

    And why would you be visualizing gay body builders dressed in sleek silver tights?

    Sounds Freudian to me.

    Wow, I didn't even notice that post.

    How the HELL does that even relate???

    What would his sexual preference, or foreskin removal procedure, have to do with anything?

    Prove he was white. The article does not make that claim, I get the impression he was of some darker skin color and further darkened that. Would be rather obvious if a white guy painted himself black.

    "Prove he was white!"


    Let me ask you this:

    Do you honestly think it would be funny, if a white guy shows up at an Office Halloween party, dressed up to spoof a negro gang-banger in a prison outfit?....or, if a white christian male, dressed up as a "money-grubbing" Jewish banker with a hook nose?

    Are those the kind of things you find funny, and have no problem with?



    edit: As for me, I would find it highly inappropriate at an Office halloween party, for any white dude to spoof a negro prison gang-banger, or to spoof a "greedy" money grubbing jewish banker.
