    Default "Black Hole, Devils Food Cake, and Angel Food Cake" Are RACIST TERMS, PEOPLE!!!

    FOXNews.com - Texas County Official Sees Race in Term 'Black Hole' - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

    My eyes are rolling so hard I can see my freaking brain right now.


    DALLAS What do "black hole," "angel food cake," and "devil's food cake" have in common?
    They're all racist terms, says a Dallas County, Texas, official.
    A county commissioners' meeting this week over traffic tickets turned into a tense discussion over race when one commissioner said the county's collections office was like a certain astronomical phenomenon.
    "It sounds like Central Collections has become a black hole," Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said during the Monday meeting.
    One black official demanded an apology, and Commissioner John Wiley Price, who also is black, said that type of language is unacceptable.
    At the meeting, Mayfield said he intended his comments to be taken in the context of the scientific meaning, and became upset that he was being misunderstood.
    In astronomy, the term black hole refers to a star that has collapsed upon itself, creating something so dense and small that it does not have any physical properties besides a gravitational force so great that even light cannot escape its pull.
    Later, Price told MyFOXdfw.com that he believed it and other terms were racist.
    "So if it's 'angel food cake,' it's white. If it's 'devil's food cake,' it's black. If you're the 'black sheep of the family,' then you gotta be bad, you know. 'White sheep,' you're okay. You know?" Price said.
    Price said people should watch their words when it comes to stereotypes.
    "I think people should always be careful. You know, I'm okay if I'm 'bartering' with you. ... But if I try to 'Jew you down,' Oooooh. Is that racist? I thought it meant the same thing? No, maybe it doesn't."
    The world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking might have a solution to the problem over perception of the astronomical term. He refers to the phenomenon as "a singularity".

    Oh dear God, this shit is getting out of hand. Just shut it. Live your life and worry about stuff that REALLY matters. I don't think the name of a cake is holding anyone back.
    Fucking morons, I am so tired of this shit.

    Pool and bowling are racist games. One has the white ball dominating and shoving everyone else into pockets. The other has the black ball striking pins with red necks. Ban them!

    This is going to damn far. Forget sensitivity, this is utter madness!

    That's not news. Muhammad Ali said the same things in his fantastic
    speeches at Harvard and other universities back in the sixties.
    It's not just the terms but the contrast that was implied.
    Devil's Food cake was chocolate: dark.
    Angel's Food cake was light.
    Dark is always bad, light is always good. Look at old Westerns.
    The hero always has a light horse and white or light clothes
    and hat.
    The villains are always dark haired and/or wear dark colors.
    People of color got tired with always being associated with
    the bad and the evil.
    I understand the connection, but then, I am colored and of
    a certain age when it was more every day practice.

    It's true that they are based in racism back in the day. Don't forget "Black cat is bad luck", "Little White lies aren't that bad", Bad guys wear black, You can get black listed or black balled

    Pretty sure it's not based in racism... darkness has always represented evil ever since biblical times.. and not in a racial way. The darkness of men's souls is not manifested in some black guy walking down the street. It's a fucking METAPHOR, people.

    Thank you.

    I prefer bright, light, sunny days over cloudy, overcast, dark days. Does that make me racist?
