    No more black holes. No more yellow lines.. I'd like to get rid of white sheets and white snow myself.. :lol::lol:



    There are seven colors in a rainbow and 64 in a box of crayons. So why, some people in Atlanta are asking, did the Transit Authority have to pick yellow?

    "Hotlanta" is living up to its name this winter as Asian-Americans and the city's transit officials debate the decision to rename a train route into the heart of the city's Asian community. It used to be called "Doraville," now it's the "yellow line."

    Activists say the name shows a lack of sensitivity by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), which changed the line's name on Oct. 1. MARTA officials plan to meet on Friday with a group of Asian-Americans to discuss their concerns about the color-coded

    In Charlotte, our light rail line is called the blue line. There was controversy over that as well as some were concerned that the Vulcans in the community might be offended.

    It runs by Budford Highway that has been over run with the yellow people. 98% of them couldnt give a flying fuck about what color the line is. But you have a few liberal minded fucktards that want to make a big deal over it. Next the NAACP will be whining about the black line that runs downtown.

    I'd have thought the cops would be pissed off about a "blue line."

    Are Asians allowed to see red without pissing off the Indians?
