    “You want to talk about racism? This has nothing to do with color, it has to do with people who are not willing to get up, plug in the coffee maker, and go to work … Come on, get a job, we’re not talking race here,” Joan McKenna said.

    I live about 40 minutes out of Detroit and there are pizza places that won't even deliver out here because of the element that's usually around here. Especially in the summer. When you drive into a neighbor full of crackheads, prostitutes and car jackings, don't expect not to be harassed.

    This isn't racism, it's sensibility.

    Reminds me of the Firesign Theater album; no deliveries in sector R.

    Oh, OK. The first link was to another report.

    Where is the racism charge, other than one person's say so? Was the shooter black? It's another random act of violence with no other significance. What's the excitement?

    What is it, Mob rule is running private businesses now? I would hardly call protecting your business's employees racism.
