On weekend nights, I like to operate the taxi close to home, in Anoka. I may change my way of thinking. For those who are aware of the the news that this Mayberry-esque community is beginning to enforce an antiquated taxi ordinance, it has nothing to do with that. The cops up here have been pretty cool to the cabbies that are holding out of the permit process.

No folks, what bothers me is that in 2011, there are still places that a person of color can't go, without some jerkoff spouting off racial slurs to his face. That was the case last night. Sad part is, the guy who was on the receiving end of this hate speech was nearly cuffed and stuffed for sticking up for himself. It's a good thing I showed up when I did to get him and his friend out of there.

Yep.. Good old Anoka... About as white bread as you can get. The town that helped one of the biggest wingnuts in political history, Michele Bachmann, coast into another two year term in Congress. It's pretty obvious that black people aren't very welcome here. And it isn't even the old farts that are the most racist up here. There is a breed of twenty-somethings, like the jackwagon from last night, the ones that have no problem getting liquored up, and ganging up on a couple of guys who were just out to have a good time.

I don't think I've ever been as ashamed of my race, or my community, as I was last night.

Stop playing the race card, there is less racism in Anoka than downtown minneapolis, People being robbed and mugged by black groups singling out a woman or a person alone. If any one tried that in Anoka the people would not stand for it no matter who the victim may be.
Last summer a black man planted a racist sign in his own yard with the N word on it and finally admitted that he did the race card by himself.

Ewe use words like white bread and spew how ashamed you are of your own race , whatever that race may be. Don't Badmouth the good folks of Anoka County or city unless you have more to offer than race science. Peop[le in Anoke still believe in respect for the law's all of them.

The isolated incident you witnessed shows that that are some stupid people in Anoka.

To paint an entire town, or a political candidate with the brush you are using is a huge stretch.

My impression is that you are the stupid one since you can not differentiate between an isolated incident and a widespread pandemic.

Help Stop the Hate from Rush Limbaugh

Senator Leland Yee and others are calling on Rush Limbaugh to apologize for mocking the Chinese language and culture on his radio program.

Senator Yee said:

“Recently, Rush Limbaugh reached a new low as he mocked the Chinese language and culture. His classless act is an insult to over 3,000 years of cultural history and is a slap in the face to the millions of Chinese Americans who have struggled in this country and to a people who constitute one-quarter of the world’s population. His comments belittle the contributions of the Chinese community and are sadly indicative of the bigotry that has often plagued his commentary and lined his pockets. Mr. Limbaugh owes the Chinese community an apology for this pointless and ugly offense.”

If you agree, sign the petition to condemn Rush Limbaugh's remarks and to call on his sponsors to pull their advertisements from his program.

Thank you for this list. Now ,I will know where to go if I need any of the products that they sell.
Support Rush Limbaugh, he tells it like it is, and doesn't give a damn whether liberals like it or not. Pretty refreshing.

Who do you think you are kidding - you engage in insults and name calling in almost every post! Most of us are sick and tired of your insults and rants. You've lost your grip on reality, old man. Even your friends have been strongly suggesting that you tone down your rhetoric.

Racist to the core, Archie hates all minorities - blacks, Asians, gays, you name it, Archie hates 'em.

Archie also has no education and no arguments. Reduced to name calling and insults, Archie is relegated to the Internet troll category, competing with 14 year olds living in their momma's basements for attention.

ARCH AND HIS WHITE SHEETS

This is coming from a pathological liar, Identification theif, socialist, Freeloader on welfare. and Brainwashed Marxist beyond repair.

This Mis creatant of a human is very angry at Arch for taking a crap on his/their socialist production of hate posts aimed at decent elected to office Americans. Only conservative and dependable Americans, Their enablers we call democrats and socialists promised to feed, clothe and find shelter for these dependentants if they would vote for the socialist left are loved and Worshipped by the Anal dependentants.
Now that the country has spoken and are asking why so many socialist dependentants are sitting on their ares in a rent free housing posting socialist hate posts by the dozen while the rest of the country works and pays taxes.
The psychoblogger insists old arch is not edumacated, and attempts to degrade old Arch. But all the nice people that are hip to this psychoblogger know different, But Retention, especially anal retention by the psychoblogger really Puts his attempt at communicating right on target.. Go get em Comrade

Hey Arch and Irish, Do you think this observation came from one isolated incident?

This was a little more disgusting than most, but just about every weekend, you hear 20-something drunked up white guys shouting racial slurs between each other. Most black folks don't even bother hanging out at any of the Jackson St. bars.

Until you've seen what I've seen in 30 years of driving cab, just slither back under your rock.

John,

In your original post, you told of a single incident in Anoka and then brought Michelle Bachmann into it.

My response is 100% correct. Your brush was way too broad.

With what you added here, it just goes to show that there are lots of stupid people of all ages and all colors. As a cabbie, you know that what you described is not limited to young white men.

Stupidity knows no boundaries.

NAACP is a group that gives money and advocates only to people of one particular race and they claim that Tea Parties want to return to pre-civil rights days. Would that be irony?
