How racial oversensitivity can lead to self embarrasement.
If "ignorance is bliss", then there are people in our society that are in shear utopia. When I commented on Rene Marie, I wanted to present an example of how blacks in American society have been dumbed down and manipulated by what I call "BSV". That stands for "Black Self Victimization". One of the symptoms of "BSV" is when blacks become oversensitive over a word or phrase that has no racial definition or origin. Here's a case study.During a Dallas Commissioner meeting, the Dallas County Commissioner made a reference to the paperwork seeming to disappear into a "black hole". Anyone who took science or astronomy knows what a black hole is and what it does. Any rational thinking person black or white wouldn't have thought twice about what the commissioner said. So much for rationality in this case. Judge Thomas Jones who is black became upset and wanted an "apology", because of the comment Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield's made about the paper work disappearing into a black hole. He deemed that comment to be "racially insensitive". Just look at the video, and please point out what exactly was "racially insensitive" about what Commissioner Mayfield said in reference to a "black hole".
What stuns me more then this joke of an incident actually being called "controversal" is that Thomas Jones is an actual judge!! This person shouldn't even be in a position of power due to his mental condition. This story also shows how people who are oversensitive demand others to be "politically correct" when in their presence. So what's next on the political correctness, racially oversensitive hit parade? Maybe people like Mr. Jones might want to look into banning the game of "billiards". Doesn't that make sense from a PC point of view? The poor colored balls are racially attacked by the white cue ball, and the "black eight ball" is saved for last to be highlighted how the white cue ball holds dominance over it. This analogy is funny and absolutely absurd I know, and so are people like Mr. Thomas Jones. I guess if the electricity goes out in Mr. Jone's neighborhood, a white person will be ill advised to use term "blackout or brownout". Once again another illustration in which I shake my head and sigh. People like Mr. Jones probably think shadows are oppressed because they are black too and are stood on.
