It was the wife of a city official. If the NAACP was upset about some regular non-affiliated person, they should have come to my wall on election night. I think I saw the "N" word used about 10 times...at least.

I really need to keep an official list of common words and phrases that you can't use in relation to black people. I thought the hullabaloo over somebody saying Obama needed to "throw a lot of spears" to win the election was ridiculous, but now calling people "ignorant" makes you a racist?

There was a local business here that posted a rant about how Obama's mother should had gotten an abortion. Someone commented that what she said was in poor taste, and the owner then started throwing all sorts of f bombs, freedom of speech, etc excuses.

I found it hard to believe that her winning personality has translated into nasty reviews on Yelp. Ok, not really. But I'm surprised she's still in business.

Is expressing political opinions on Facebook freedom of speech, an online rant or racism?

Can't it be all of the above?

To a lot of bleeding hearts, any criticism of any black person for any reason whatsoever can only be due to racism.

That's a pretty cool story, bro, but wasn't it kind of a Big Deal on the Internet when conservatives boycotted and yelp bombed a small business owner who hugged Obama?
I'll grant that this particular business owner's comments are considerably more salacious, but I'll say the principles are the same. If it's wrong to get butthurt over a bear hug, it's wrong to get butthurt over a threat to commit retrochronicide.

There was nothing racist about that post. If you're black, not every person on the planet is required to like you or your views. And if they don't, it doesn't automatically make them a racist. You've overplayed your race card, so knock it the fark off with the "everything is racist" bullshiat.

Words in the post with possible racist overtones:

city
yourselves

You're not alone. It's a fairly typical rant, except that everything's spelled correctly. There's nothing racist there.

The NAACP local chapter President Debra Brown says she read the post and believes it is racial. Brown said that Thrower should apologize and went on to say that, "not only her but her husband as well should apologize for his wife's behavior."

Her post wasn't racist but they sure come close to sexism on that one.

I once went to a movie theater to watch skyfall, there was a very LARGE black woman in front of me talking on the cellphone. As everyone else who gets fed up with it, I turned to my girlfriend and said "I think I smell fried chicken, do they sell fried chicken here? Im getting hungry". My Gf looked at me puzzled not even having a clue, any how 2 minutes later the woman hung up the phone and got up and left. I thought I won a victory, until she came back from the bathroom and said "No they don't sell fried chicken here" opened her cellphone and called her friend back.

DOH freaking biatch outplayed me :\

Cool Story Stereotyping Bro

So instead of actually confronting her about talking during the movie or telling an usher, you make a stereotypical passive-agressive comment? Not helping

The NAACP is probably in panic mode. We just reelected a black president, there's not much better proof that the majority of the country, even lots of those evil white people, aren't racist. They're going to have to try a lot harder to continue suckering guilty people into giving them attention and money.

That all depends. If Kim Thrower is honky, then her post was not racist.

If Kim Thrower is an African-American, then yes, her post was racist, and she should instead use the approved politically correct terminology of "ig'nint" complete with semaphoric gesture.

So much THIS.

The post didn't say anything remotely racist. The NAACP is basically advertising it has achieved all of its goals and should disband.

And if that's not the case, then why are they wasting their time with something this utterly stupid? Isn't there any instance of real racism in that area they could chase?

/Still a dumb thing to post, though, given possible repercussions to the government-employed husband.
