Sound like the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae situation. Wasn't it a short time ago when advertisers were accused of ignoring Black audiences in their advertising?

This is just a stupid story. Minorities just tend to eat more fatty and greasy foods because it taste good! It's just a fact. Whites tend to have a more bland diet. You can't blame advertisers for obesity. Only you can decide what you eat.

Throw in the lack of any physical activity(video games do not count) adds to the problem.

These kids need phys ed in school and be taught proper eating habits.

They're screaming that advertisers are catering to them?
They'd ALSO be screaming if advertisers IGNORED them.

The point isn't the advertising - it's the "hey, look at us!" screaming. It must be genetic.

I think the white house in all of its power can do a damn good job of keeping track of what you eat to exert control over our freedom .

Thanks for taking the time to share info about the event my husband & I had also volunteered for. As you are aware, we had lost our 7 year old son to the dreaded disease.

The 5 years prior to his death were extremely difficult. If it were not for Mike and the volunteers such as you from Swim Across the Sound, my husband and I could never have coped with the heartache and overwhelming challenges during that most difficult time.

The year following our black son's death, my husband and I decided to get involved with SATS. We made that decision based on the desire to help others who must travel the same road, in an effort to assist them with their insurmountable challenges.

We would like to thank you for your time and compassion for this event & all the others you have helped with, making each SATS event a success!You have always been very kind and helpful & need to know how much you are loved, respected & appreciated.
Thank You & Happy Birthday
With Love,
Judi & Joe R

They always complain. We should stop giving them handouts altogether. They do not appreciate anything. Ungrateful savages.
