America may have elected an African-American president, but that doesn’t make us a post-racial society. Far too many citizens haven’t gotten the “racism isn’t funny” memo:
“New “Air Force One” Tail Number and yes, please forgive me, I’m really sorry, I really, really tried not to laugh, but …………………..!”
Attached to the e-mail was an Photoshopped image of Air Force one with NI66ER written on the plane’s tail.
Firstly, you fucktard, if you can’t keep yourself from laughing at something that blatantly racist, you need to speak to some black friends about the implications of certain words. I’m sure you have a black friend – every racist claims one.
Secondly, if you can’t keep yourself from laughing, you can damned fucking sure keep yourself from forwarding something you obviously knew was inappropriate.
I hope your ass gets fired. Clueless cretins need to be flipping burgers, not dispatching for a police department. Fuck teachable moments. If you haven’t learned over the last 50 years that racism is wrong, further attempts at education would be wasted.
