Lived in ATL in the 80's, locals refered to MARTA as Moving Africans Rapily Thru Altanta so the race thing is old news there, and they think the civil war is still a winable war..........................

"They hope MARTA will change the line's name from yellow to gold."

Tell them all to go back where they came from.

What if it was called "The White Line".....would whitey have the right to complain. NO!

So then the native Americans can sue because there is a red line, the smurfs can sue for the blue line, and the hulk can sue for the green line. Way to just offend everyone MARTA. You should have just called everything the PC line.

OMG - are we serious here? Get over it, it is just a color that has no random meaning to it. If you don't like it, then don't ride it. Plain and simple, problem solved!

"It physically paints a very unattractive picture. I don't consider myself 'yellow.' "

Great, Mr. Park, so why are you offended by something being called the yellow line?

Wonder why we don't hear of complaints about the Yellow Line in the DC metro rail system. I'm sure there are and have been many Asians in DC, MD and VA

Why does everyone gets bent out of shape about something so silly as this? It's pretty funny if you think about it.

Do not forget "Yellow Cab". Also Crayola has several varieties of "yellow" in the big crayon box.

Apparently no one should ever say anything anymore because some overly sensitive douchebags are always offended. This whole PC crap needs to come to an end, bunch of sissies.
