    Here's the story and the link. Wow just freaking wow.

    The University of Memphis in Tennessee responded after a photo of a group of young black students about to hit a pinata went viral.

    The reason for the controversy? The pinata in question was shaped like a white female hula dancer.

    Local NBC affiliate WMC-TV reported the photo was taken Thursday during an annual luau-themed campus event to which local schoolchildren were invited.

    “It didn’t look right, just because of the social climate we’re in right now,” University of Memphis student Veronica Birmingham, who took the photo, told WMC. “How could somebody be so insensitive and not realize this might cause an issue?


    Don't you love the quote? "It didn't look right"??????? No freaking shit.

    #1 Jesse and Al would show up.

    #2 New Black Panthers would issue a Wanted Poster for the children.

    #3 Geraldo Rivera would apologize.

    #4 Spike Lee would tweet the address of the Parents of the children.

    #5 White people would be beat up in the name of a "black lawn jockey".

    And I'm just getting warmed up.

    Oh I'm not angry. I'm laughing my ass off because it just shows what a wonderously hypocritical world we live in.

    If it was white kids aka cracker kids according to the NBP using a black hawaiian dancer as a pinata and belting it, well hell's bells Attorney General Eric Holder would be holding a special investigation to get to the bottom of the incident.

    Obama would be out on the front lawn at a news conference claiming that if he had a pinata that pinata would have looked like that pinata before the evil white honkey kids hit it.

    :lol:

    No fuckin shit! A few years back a white family decorated their yard for Halloween. They hung a dummy that they bought in a local store from their tree by a noose. This decoration was made to look like a rotten corpse who had been hung; It was blue/grey. No race is that color after death that anyone should have been offended. Don't you know a group of black people complained. They thought it was racist saying lots of blacks were hung in the past and it insensitive blah blah blah. The family was bewildered by the reaction but took it down. I'm sick of the double standard. Black kids hitting a white woman pinata? looks racist to me,I want an appology.

    The double standard is unreal at this point. And we're not to say a word. Just take it. Because we are told that only whites can be racist.

    What would have happened if this person had hung an Obama in effigy or a Biden or Clinton in effigy doll instead of Palin?

    And the family had an effigy of McCain in flames. The gentleman called it "art" and wouldn't take it down.
