Thank god no injuries--wonder if this will be his chance to break into more media attention.
Why couldn't Obama have been in the plane!?! Or Ted Kennedy?? Jeremiah Wright?!? Or Louis Farrakhan? >_<

But if either one were indeed in the plane, we would have to hope the plane would have crashed!!!

That blows!!!

Ps. I am NOT a Paul supporter, but I am GLAD Paul is fine. Paul is a REAL American patriot.

Actually, he's got a lot more money than you do. Maybe its because he rides around on stagecoach so much .

It's like the guy selling some product I forgot "how do you think I got so rich?"

Perhaps you should go up to some black people and use it and see how favorably they respond. Believe me, I know your prototype...Im sure you also talk about "if they have BET why cant they have WET??" and other boring arguments of that nature.

What a slimey thing to say. If McCain died in a plane crash or otherwise I would find it sad. I dislike him as a politician but I do not have such disdain for him that I wish death upon him.

Oh god, there are more of you. Look, the word negro was once widely used by black intellectuals in referring to themselves, and was a perfectly acceptable word to use as a descriptor, until around the 1950s. Since then the word has fallen out of favor and the word 'black' or 'African-American' is more widely accepted.

I'm not trying to argue with you or your buddy why it is considered a racial slur, I'm merely stating that it is. I didn't create the word and designate it as a 'bad' word, it just became that way in the post-Civil Rights era. Most blacks see it as a derogatory word to use, that it what I'm letting you know. There's no argument.

And if you want to bring Caucasian, Mongoloid, and Negroid out as evidence, please note that those are obsolete terms that are no longer used by anthropologists. That three race thing is archaic and abandoned. What are you going to cite next, phrenology?

kidicarus89: First you call upon Jesus Christ, and then upon God. Is this too "deep" for an addled brain? I've never used negro or Negro as a racially insensitive word, but merely as what it is, an identifier. Phrenology, that's a good'un. I don't study skulls or bumps, although I do know what a Richard Skull really is.

nick is rulz: You don't know me from Adam's housecat, Lil Dude. "Prototype." Big word for a little person.

Y'all both easier than shooting fish in a barrel, ya know?

Delta Planter, you offered absolutely no rebuttal whatsoever to my statement. You are relegated to the role of insignificance.

Fine by me, kidicarus89. I don't have a need for your sophomoric attitude, anyway.

Isn't there a United Negro College fund? What's the big deal?
