Snafu-ed, bringing you the non-stories that don't matter.
Why no story on Portland Or. mayor? I mean this guy is half as important being a councilman wouldn't you say?
Right, because being a Democrat trumps being a child molester.

If blacks want respect they have to be willing to show it also.
So, in other words you didn't "hear" a damn thing.

Yea, but are they councilmen on company time sending out racial e-mails to staff and citizens? I think not. Cause if it were a hispanic or african american they would be fired on the spot. BIG DIFFERENCE!

You're a bit mistaken--Frago is an elected official serving ALL people. Comedians (black or white) do it to get a reaction. Mr. Fargo is not a comedian and should probably start looking for a job.
Agree. I can't understand why is it that the ones who are doing these things are people in high positions, representatives of some sort, and are so dumb.

"California is a Blue state, but there is still plenty of Red in it"

WTF is that supposed to mean......if yor a republican your a racist.

so in a matter of 14 words this dushbag blogger reduced CA to lousiana(in trems of race relations)

the story is true but the blogger has put such a SPIN on the info,

instead of this mans racism being the main topic the blogger has you thinking that ALL republicans are racist. which is BS!!

if you people are actually takeing this guy who wrote the article seriously you have to be niave or stupid!

people we need to get are from more reliable places. STOP READING BLOGGERS THEY DONT FACT CHECK, either does the times but they will at least put out a correction

I dont care what color someone is,if they are misusing public equipment to do these things ,then they should be fired. If it is misuse of company equipment,then the company should decide what the punishment is.

Comedians are comedians. When politicians and employers do it, it's wrong and doesn't make one feel too comfortable in the workplace.

Lets not compare this idiot sending an email to Dave Chappelle as we look for excuses for racist acts.

If this guy sent out negative and sexists jokes about females would you claim comedians can make sexist or degrading jokes about females and your boss can't do the same in company-wide emails?
