50% said "Gypped"
"Dallas County commissioner Kenneth Mayfield has been accused of being racially insensitive for publicly using which term?"
- Come on, now. Not all gypsies are gypsies.
30% said "Indian Giver"
- This never made sense as a derogatory term against "Indians." It makes more sense if you are leveling it at someone, who like the government, gave land to the native Americans, broke treaties and took it away. I hear by propose we all start using "Treaty Breaker" when dealing with someone who gives something and then takes it back. Or just use "asshole."
10% said "Brown Out"
- Obvious mistake. Someone mistook his comments about energy to be a plea for genocide.
10% got it right with "Black Hole"
According to The Dallas Morning News, county commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments.
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.
All right, folks. Have we learned the lesson of fellow Texan George W. Bush, yet? "Someone you'd have a beer with" is not a criteria for leadership and governing. Stop electing idiots to government. I want to start seeing report cards and grade point averages on elected officials.
