Continuing Saga…

… of the perpetually offended.

From the Dallas Morning News:

County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections “has become a black hole” because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud “Excuse me!” He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a “white hole.”

That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

I have created a new category for posts like this…  “The Perpetually Offended”

  1. I suppose this would be the tipping point for the combo platter that is the last two posts, eh?

    (Sorry, that’s just how my gameshow of a brain works.)

  2. What this incident needs is a nice “whitewash”. Or maybe it would be mighty “white” of everybody to just forget it.

  3. I need some black out to strike these comments from the record. While we’re at it, why don’t we edit the Bible? The heart of man is not really dark with sin, it’s more of a peachy white shade.
