As the legendary comedian Bill Cosby walked off the stage Friday night at the Pan American Center, the crowd stood and presented a well-deserved round of applause, given for an hour and a half of laughs, thoughtful lessons on life and love, and even a "Hey, Hey, Hey," thrown in for good measure.

"A middle-aged woman in front of me complained of stomach aches as we headed for the exits."

"In back of me, an elderly black man commented to his friend,'The old man's still got it.'"

Why is the skin color of the elderly man noted, but the middle-aged woman remains raceless? What is behind such blatantly offensive classifying between two members of the same race - THE HUMAN RACE.

These are questions that call for answers.

Absolute brilliant comment! It is good to know that - according to the foxholes, dittoheads, and teabaggers - racism has been conquered and that anyone who points out examples of racism must therefore be a racist.

Teabaggers...racist? You need to get your crap together as obviously can't stand truth.
So you enjoy having your money, if you work, paying for health care for people who don't work? You enjoy your government spending trillions of money that belongs to the people that you, if you work, will have to pay back?

Placitas, how many times per day do you have to open your mouth to change feet? It seems like you cannot make a comment without pissing someone off. Do you practice this each day or where you born this way?

Racism will always be a fact of the human race, and the liberal dummies have yet to figure that out, but then, they can't figure out too many things about anything, can they?

Not only is your response completely off-topic, your questions are based on totally false assumptions.

Actually I was absolutely opposed to pissingaway those 100ís of BILLIONS of $$$ on Dubya's illegal and immoral invasion and occupation, his Medicare D scam, and his TRILLION $$$ tax-cut for the mega-uber wealthy.

The only thing he did was solve the biggest problem he faced when he took office - "deficits as far as the eye can see!"

If I pissoff racists, I LOVE IT! Being a progressive liberal I believe those words Abe Lincoln spoke: "....dedicated to the proposition that ALL men are created equal.

Foxholes, dittoheads, and teabaggers get really pissedoff when confronted with some facts or truths challenged their cultist beliefs.

because anyone who isn't black will always describe someone that is black - black. recently a walgreens in el paso was robbed the first description that went out was:
black male
6'0 tall
mid 30s early 40s
medium build

then a day or so later the description became
mexican
5'6
early 20's

the black race is the step-child to the human race.

Not black, mulatto/mixed. Who cares.

Had the article used the gag-inducing term of 'African American' instead of 'black' and published a picture of me with the quoted "The old man's still got it" - it would have ended up as fodder for Sound Off debate: my parents, Caucasian, are both from Pretoria, South Africa - so technically speaking (according to the US Politically Correct Symposium of Bull$hit Terms) I am African American. However, it gets even stupider - I have Canadian citizenship, so despite living here am actually not American...UNLESS the term encompasses every person with African ancestry, lily white to charcoal, living from the top of Canada all the way down to the tip of Chile. But it doesn't.

that rather than dusting off a copy and paste insult, you should use that time to help an elderly person.

Nah, that's not your style.

Why no mention of "ageism"? Clearly the reporter spoke of a "middle aged" woman, and an "elderly" man, and why not any mention of the fact that it was a "woman" and a "man", why wasn't it reported as 2 attendees? Bright Eyes, the answers you seek are in your mirror. Why did YOU see racism?

that you don't listen to Rush, he gives us all the facts we need, 15 hours a week of facts.

His facts are backed up with sound bites of your dopey liberal leaders making fools of themselves.

As an example, Pelosi doesn't call them tax increases, they are fixes of tax decreases that never were.

You can stay in denial all you want, it's you that is getting pruned up.

Because that's the latest rage in the media and society today. I just wanted to fit in and play the ever-popular "race card". My attempt at a ridiculously trivial observation fired up a pretty retarded thread, eh?

i got judged off-topic for responding to your post :D

what i find sad about that judgment because i know it was mostly over my walgreens comment is that it is a sad state of affairs when it is far too easy to identify a suspect as black then make no apologies and later identify that person as mexican.

now any comedian would make a good joke out of that for that is ripe for material - racist or not.

i myself found it funny the next day it goes from black to mexican, from 6'0 to 5'6, and from late 30s to early 20s - it then becomes a question of are you even sure the place got robbed???
