Thousands gather for Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney

Who IS this Phil individual? And how has he managed to live well over 100 years? Frankly, I'm skeptical of the whole thing.

I love this time of year, when people choose to use groundhog stories to lightly veil their racial overtones.
Truly a classless act and yet another shot at those of us who finally, thanks to our presidential electoral system, can walk with our heads high for once.

Pray tell, what the h*** are you talking about?

I think it's fairly obvious. Don't assume that just because its 2009, that skin color isn't an issue any longer. So called holidays like this are filled with references to superiority of certain colors.
Sad but true.

OK, I'll play along. Ground hog day in Punxsutawney is nothing but an all night party with a bonn fire, a disk jockey, and fireworks just before dawn. Then at the crack of dawn the guys in the top hats pull the rodent out of a tree stump and he supposedly tells them there's 6 more weeks of winter (most of the time). Then everybody heads back into town for breakfast. It's just a good excuse for an all night party.
Now please tell me what that has to do with race!

Some of you will call everything a racist act! Grow up and get over yourself!
So...the groundhog is brown and he calls for 6 more weeks of winter...and snow is white. Aww, now I get it.....NOT!

It's the overtones on certain articles. I hate how insensitive people can be.
Until you know our struggles, don't try to sell them short.
