Re: Racist Accusation?

The central problem - is the preaching to the choir effect - back at the ole' water cooler - the best investor by far was a black woman engineer who threatened to do bad things to her hubby if he even thought of messing with 'the family portfolio' - aerospace co so the group was preselected.

A poll on this forum?? Prewinnowed also??

Re: Racist Accusation?

Our kid's blog profile says that she's haole on the outside and Hawaiian on the inside...

She's half-WASP and half-Russian, so I have no idea where she gets that from.

You don't have to be white to enjoy NASCAR, just a redneck.

Yeah, but only whites can get that telltale sunburn on the back of the neck that lasts into the grave. When I was little I thought my grandfather was an Indian- turned out he was just a Northern European who spent too much time in the hot sun.
