    Those people need to check their ghetto culture.

    The controversy is the amount of noise they're making, and, according to the article, the church had been cited twice.

    These ladies want to get in shape?

    They can't be inside because the floor of the church becomes slippery with perspiration. Do white people ever have that problem?

    I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to be accused of racism by default for a noise complaint. :confused:
    Whites at my school have had that problem for 100 years while exercising in the dorm, but I don't think there was ever zumba involved.

    Naw, you don't care if someone is playing amplified music outside your house, possibly after your bed time, twice weekly. The only conceivable reason you'd complain about black people doing that is because you're racist.

    You want to cut taxes because you're racist
    You criticize Obama because you're racist.
    You vote Republican because you're racist.
    You're tough on crime because you're racist.
    You support the 2nd Amendment because you're racist.
    You don't watch basketball because you're racist.
    If your skin is white, I know you're racist. Such is the majority opinion among blacks.

    If there were two Fraternities on a college campus, and one of them had a sign "everyone welcome" and the other had a sign "only people of color welcome", when the blacks join the colored frat (and, 90% would), only the other frat is racist, racist for not being diverse enough.

    Do you really want the inside of your church to smell like a gym? Gross...

    They can vent the church. Their aerobics classes outside is a public nuisance, unchristian, not a good neighbor. Maybe find an alternative location. They should be ashamed of themselves for being a public nuisance and for compounding their sin by accusing their neighbor of racism.

    I still say if they focused on their homes and families a little more, they wouldn't need Zumba:

    Oh, and cut their portions a bit.

    Eat less. Move more.
