    for making what they believe to be racist comments, will they also remove all the music they sell that makes racial comments about white people?

    Questioned posed by a friend in PA. I told her that I believe that to be a legitimate argument and one Paula Deen could use to file her own discrimination suit.

    In most class action cases, the only winners are the lawyers.

    Be aware: "Some of my best friends are black" is a racial slur, intentional or not. How many of use that one?

    Some of my best friends are white, black, hispanic, and Asian.

    I'm proud to be a racist then.

    It's not about a sense of morality. It is purely about money.

    If it's an anniversary present for your wife, may I suggest that you accessorize with a helmet.

    The helmet is for you.:laugh:

    Not at all....its for me. I generally give her more practical gifts...like a new vacuum cleaner or a lawn mower. Sometimes even a new set of metric ratchets:thumbsup:

    "Some of my best friends are black" implies that even though they are black they are your friends.

    The color of one's skin has absolutely nothing to do with anything except melanin levels.
