it's hilarious that all these sensitive white people in this thread who always cry like little biiitches about one of their own getting slapped on the hand for being disrespectful to other races, but these same COWARDS don't have it in them to say what they really feel to African Americans, Hispanics, etc.

Why do you all complain so much when the rare occassion of a white person actually being reprimanded for being disrespectful to blacks?

Would you rather that no one disciplines the racist scum and instead that whenever they feel strong enough to be disrespectful they get the racism literally beaten out of them by blacks?

You can't have it both ways.

Please tell you buddies to stop coming to Baltimore to buy drugs
no please let the whites continue to be drug dealers in the inner city BEST customers, plus there are so many drug abusing whites that they don't realize how they are enslaving themselves to the blacks that sell to them and get rich off of them and go buy up all the real estate in the City, then basically robs the rich white developers who want the property.

I LOVE IT!

BY THE WAY, you do realize pretty much all the white women in Carroll County love to have sex with black men, rather you know it or not. I wonder why that is?

I for one am like so upset at the racist people on Earth, i'm white and I love to do drugs and disgrace myself for all to see, so what, this is America!

I speak for all white people who are proud to be rich, white, stupid, and pathetic mutts, and occasionally I like to sleep with black guys, any of you got a problem with that? SUE ME!

The official is obviously not too bright, but one foolish use of a slang word for a rock does not a racist make. He should be given a second chance if he gives a good explanation. How ironic that blacks seem to be howling for his head when good old Rev. Wright can preach hatred for 20 years and they support him?
Yes, that makes sense, comparing an official with influence in business and schools to a preacher in a church where none of the whites from carroll county would ever dream of attending in the first place!

Thats what makes you a genius!

Hey Richmond,

Why is it that you get soooooooo upset if a white uses any variation on the dreaded n-word, but don't have a problem with your black brothers & sisters, even some black ministers using it? Please enlighten this "typical white guy".

The conversation has devolved, which is expected given the folks writing these comments. I wrote 2 provocative but non-offensive posts meant for dialogue. It digs into the issues of race relations instead of just labeling someone based on their skin color. I'm glad that those people with the harsh responses are among the few, as I believe most people have the ability to have an open, honest, and informed conversation about race.

Someone said that I'm not informed and if I go into these communities, I would see that all Blacks are uncivilized and trash their neighborhoods. Well, I live in an inner and rough Baltimore City neighborhood and what you are saying is simply not the case. There are great and positive things going on. I mentor kids on a daily basis and so do many others. Many of those kids are in college now and they are Black; are you surprised? Given the opportunity, mentoring, and some guidance, great things happen. There's just a huge problem and limited resources. Read the effects of the Jim Crow laws for some perspective. Read how the state was sued in 2000 for not funding education adequately on the grounds of violating the constitution. These things are real and it has led to the reality we see today in inner cities and with race relations.

And the trash and violence in these communities are only created by a small fraction of the population; mostly people involved in the drug culture which is fueled from above by non-Blacks. Guns get into these communities b/c non-Blacks sell them illegally there. Actually, guns have been traced to Westminster several times but I'm not going to label anyone on this blog as a white supremacist b/c this happened; unless you are the ones flooding the city with drugs and guns.

yo Kissey- how do we get the white majority off of welfare then? Get the Klan on them?? lol
Oh wait- I bet you didn't know that tidbit of fact.
Anyway- I agree he should not have said that, however I don't agree with firing people just for saying bad things. Most people do it at some point or another. I'd rather that you keep good employes in their jobs than filling them with PC bad employees. At the same time I grew up KNOWING full well you don't say that kind of stupid crap.In my opinion he said what he said fully knowledgeable about it's history as an offensive term. He should be held responsible in some manner.
And the Lutherville station is trashed by TEENAGERS of all colors. I used to live out there and saw it.

Closer Look is a moron if he thinks innocent people don't get locked up. Apparently you have never dealt with the idiot cops in Baltimore. I have several friends- who just for your particular racist thinking- are white. Not drug addicts, not criminals. But they protest stuff. You know - those things that trample our rights provided by the Constitution. For that they get arrested and not charged. And why? Because they didn't DO anything.
One friend of mine who runs a popular high end restaurant got busted for not moving along fast enough at a festival that got shut down early because the police were misinformed of its closing time. That white boy was tasered and beaten. He was also defended by a black pregnant woman and someone's grandma who was at the event. Surprised to find out they got arrested too? Probably. I'm sick of hearing that guilty people don't get arrested. They do all the damn time. Guess they should just stay in their houses to avoid the police, eh?
