Default Re: Oh, the irony!

[QUOTE=tony hipchest;263859]i think it was my attempt at humor (and an obvious swipe of the bigotry of don imus) that was taken offensively.

however there was a method to my madness that wasnt intended to offend anybody. my post pointed out the irony that even if the NAACP replaced "Colored" with the politically correct term of "Afro American" the acronym would then become NAAAAP. i think this would be just as counter productive as still using the term "colored". again, my intent wasnt to offend anybody.

but then again, im one who finds chris rocks, jim carreys, eddie murphys, and richard pryors, sense of humour hilarious so what do i know?[/QUOTE]
no love for george carlin???
