It is up to the parents to monitor their children and stores to make sure who is buying booze is of the legal age limit.Some way the NAACP will turn this into a racial thing.

How idiotic. These drinks are marketed towards ignorant nogs, not their children. Everyone knows that nogs love sweet drinks (kool aid, grape soda, purple drank), so of course they're going to sell this stuff in nog neighborhoods. And the comment about there not being any grocery stores or "food chains" in the neighborhoods where this garbage is sold is especially rich- of course there are no grocery stores in nog neighborhoods, BECAUSE CRIMINAL NOGS WOULD ROB THEM BLIND!

It takes an especially stupid affirmative-action chimp to write mindless drivel like this. "Itz all da whiiite manz fault yo. DAS RACISS!!!"

Even if you are a troubled jealous person. You must remember, Jesus loves everyone so he would attend and be joyous. Plain and Simple.

Seriously, grow up! Here, i got this from the Urban Dictionary and provided the link.

"boone's farm":

A beverage that black people enjoy because they are genetically predetermined to like malt beverages. And also because they are cheap and they are easy to steal from the super market.

Just takes one boone's farm to get lit, six to get laid.

we used to drink boone's farm when we were teenagers and i'm not black....so lighten up......don't ya EVER have anything of substance to add to the mix rather than your boorish, redundant,hateful message. it's kinda dull to read over and over and it also makes you look ignorant, like a dimwitted hillbilly.....talk about sam writing the same stuff, you racist guys make him look like hemmingway.

BPT-

We talk about a variety of things, many times the both of us are in agreement. I have so many Topix personalities, but this "Travis" character is devoted to exposing the increasingly violent black community, and their danger to society. It's taboo, I know. But the knee-jerk reaction by many Americans is to write it off as a message of "hate" when in actuality it's quite the opposite.

You a baseball fan?

"Travis" encourages anyone to tease or mock him. He understands his viewpoint isn't a popular one and expects negative feedback. He realizes it's going to be a long bumpy road, but sees (or is stubborn enough to believe) there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm writing a fiction book this summer and I'm including personalities (or combinations of personas) I gather from web forums. "pwilson" isn't me but I've used his commentary and ideas/theories to mold a character just like him. It's really an exciting, fun, and challenging project!

yes and no....too many games that don't matter, slow paced at times, used to play when i was young.
hard to identify with a person here when they change names though. i grew up in bridgeport all my life. one thing you learn here is TOLERANCE. yes, the black on black crime is an issue but i feel unless you are black what business is it of yours? this "travis" character is not one that comes across well at all. if ya got an opinion just state it in a respectful term, like YOU want to be treated. we, humans, have a lot of issues but to stir the mud up, is NEVER going to work.

Hehe. Like I said, it's not a hateful message. "Travis" is just a character with his own ideas to better the planet for everyone. He wants to take on too much, too fast. That may be his weakness. He's someone created to keep the racial jokesters/revolutionists happy since that seems to be a popular topic here.

As for myself, I couldn't care less about the racial thing. I've been involved with sports all my life. When you're part of a football team, the teammates are your brothers. You eat, sleep, and dream football together. Many of my teammates weren't light-skinned like me.

BTW, I'm going to Fenway tomorrow night to see the Sox/Yankees game. It's such a beautiful stadium because it's rich with a century of history.

i know of the teammate mentality, it's the thing i miss most from my playing days. golf is the only thing i have left now but it's a selfish sport in the sense that you get all the blame and the credit. still fun though. never went to fenway have a safe trip.....go YANKEES!

has been a good summer , made a hole in one this year.
i found watering the garden too much rotted my cucumber plant leaves, i think too much iron in the water here. great amount of veggies this year also and coming up early. probaly the winter raised the water tables from all the snow. take care.

I'm an avid bicycle rider. I can post at a stoplight; I have a mount on my handlebars for this new device. I suppose you're not as tech. advanced up there in Idaho.

I see more blacks sitting on their front porch each summer day during my vaca. than you'll ever see up there in Whitetown. trust me, they're animals. Violent ones. You'll thank me someday.
