    I am impressed with the person who made the comment about a black hole not bowing down to the bullying.

    Yes, bullying. Wrongly accusing someone and then trying to force them to apologise is bullying just as much as punching them and then making them apologise for hurting your knuckles - it`s done to humiliate them, the main purpose of bullying.

    A black hole is an excellent metaphor in this context. He was referring to money disappearing into something without any apparent effect, just as everything disappears into a black hole without any apparent effect.

    They are morons, anyone who turns innocent phrases into a race issue is a moron. I hate people like that. Black sheep/ black hole/ anything like that.. they are just terms, so what if the word black is used? It`s not like they`re saying "You are an african american sheep!" or with the n word.. black is a color not just a skin tone.

    Alternatively, the man complaining really means it. In that case, anti-"black" racism must be extremely rare in the USA, so rare that he must desperately hunt for anything that could be interpreted as an example of it by someone who is very desperate to find some and doesn`t mind making an idiot of themself.

    There are a couple of ashtrays on the wall outside my workplace. Particularly desperate addicts often break into them to steal any remnants of tobacco that other addicts have discarded. This man must be as desperate to find anti-"black" racism as they are to find tobacco.

    He must also be stupid, for this reason:

    If an inaccurate and wholly pointless description mindlessly used to identify a group of people who aren`t really *a* group at all happens to be the same as a far older description of aomething bad based on the fact that sight is the dominant sense in humans, there are two intelligent things to do: (i) consider the intended meaning and the context of each comment and (ii) advocate that the mindless, pointless and inaccurate description be changed. Taking it as a badge of identity is just stupid.

    Black hole - dense black mass moves into an area and sucks everything down into it, totally destroying it`s new neighborhood
    Black hoe - the same

    Everyone`s a little bit racist...

    OK, in all seriousness...that was pathetic. To equate a cosmic phenomenon with racism only shows paranoia on behalf of the "victim." He probably sits in that room every week just DYING for an opportunity to play the race card (ace of spades?).

    This black person in particular is dumber than a box of nails and sadly is the epitome of every stereotype about black people. The only thing he did that day was make racist people more racist. Grats!

    It was so frustrating to watch that. So many people always jump to the conclusion that people are racist. The word racist isn`t even used correctly. It means to find one race superior over another. The word he should truly have used was bigot, not racist. If I were him, I would have been extremely ashamed for my lack of knowledge, not yelling about racial inequality to a reporter. There is an African-American presidental candidate, an African-American secretary of defense, and there are so many other important leaders in this country of that race I could not name them all. They have their own TV channel, too. Can you imagine the controvery over White Entertainment Televsion, or National Advancement for White People. Also, it`s caucasian. If we can`t say black, why can everyone say white? Okay, sorry bout that,done.

    Last time i checked not one african americans skin tone could accurately be described as trully black. Of the ones that i have had the fortune to meet over the many years of my life throughout the world as a whole. They skin tone would be more aptly described as burnt sienna or dark brown, but never black. The background of this very website is indeed black. Never have i seen anyones skin tone reaching this shade of color. any other shade would not be black, it would merely be gray at or some other dark version of another color but never black. Black is an absolute color just like white. Black is the almalgam of all colors or the complete lack of light(as a color) where as white is the exact opposite. So the very idea of any african american or any other african anything being upset about the use of the color or word black as a form of personal identity is completely retarded and moronic on the part of the individual.

    we were being racist all day and it just so turns out i see a link to a n*gger who thinks the OTHER guy is being racist on IAB. delicious.

    only racist if your black, as in its only racist if your making fun of a black guy.

    anyone else notice this?

    coranthulle has more eloquently expressed part of what I meant by "an inaccurate and wholly pointless description", but it goes much further than being an inaccurate desciption of skin colour.

    It is an inaccurate, often ludicrously inaccurate, description of skin colour, but as an identification of an entire person it`s, to be blunt, insane.

    The real problem is not an inaccurate description of a colour, nor is it a *wholly unrelated* use of complete darkness to indicate something bad, which probably stems from sight being of such importance to humans, so important that darkness often causes fear.

    The real problem is defining people by the colour of their skin. Using a completely inaccurate desciption of it stems from the wish to divide humanity up into discrete groups that don`t really exist, which obviously serves only to promote irrational prejudice.

    So the man who complained is in fact part of the problem he claims to be opposed to. Which makes him even more

    This reminds me of a poem I heard once. I`m not sure who wrote it:

    As I was going up the stair,
    I met a man who wasn`t there.
    He wasn`t there again today.
    I wish, I wish he`d go away.

    Wow. How utterly stupid.

    3 things:

    1) Baelzar, I remember this idiocy. You beat me to posting the link...good job. :-)

    2) This entire controversy is straight out of an old episode of "The Jeffersons" (an old American sitcom of the late 70`s, for those who don`t know). George Jefferson got completely bent out of shape because of terms like "black sheep", "white Christmas", etc...much like this corn-rowed gangsta-lookin` councilman in Dallas.

    3) Coranthulle - Last time I checked, white people were not white, either. This text is white. Everyone on Earth is some shade of brown...just some are more than others. Even if you`re "blurple"...you`re still brown. Just, really dark brown.

    Anyway...here`s the other thing. You`re so correct and exacting to detail in your lecture on color that you miss something major. Most African-Americans............aren`t. I have a friend from Liberia. He *is*. I have a friend from Detroit. He, uneq

    God help me...I`m on a rant now...

    Next time anyone you know claims to be *anything*-American, ask them a few questions about their supposed homeland. This applies across the board, not just to "African" Americans.

    I`ve had lovely conversations that nearly came to blows with some of these:

    Girl: "I`m Czech-American!"
    Me: "Really?! Name a country that borders the Czech Republic?"
    Girl: <starts to get dizzy>

    Guy: "I`m African-American!"
    Me: "Really?! Name a country in Africa!"
    Guy: "What?! Africa!"
    Me: "Yeah...I know. Name a country there."
    Guy: "Africa *is* a country, a$$hole!"

    Girl: "I`m Irish-American!"
    Me: "Name any river in Ireland."
    Girl: <head explodes - I buy her another drink>

    True stories, all. I swear.

    Myxgyglplx, that`s why the term African-American isn`t PC anymore. Not everyone who`s black comes from Africa, nor are they all Americans.
    These commissioners are just trying to start trouble. They know that by starting this up as an issue, they`ll gain enough support to make one white guy, perhaps all white guys, look foolish.
    "We never thought of Black Hole as a racial slur. It`s not even necessarily a bad thing, it`s just that the name is so damned appropriate."
    "Yeah, well I bet you`ll think again, white devil, as soon as we sue the astrophysicists who came up with such a hateful term."
    This all started because a guy remarked that the money wasn`t going anywhere? Just kind of fizzling out? I bet if he was black it wouldn`t have mattered what he called the missing money.

    ...can`t......stop....typing.......

    My Liberian friend, who actually *is* African-American, does NOT prefer the term. He is black. So is another fellow I know from Zambia (I think)...he, also, is *black*, and will correct you if you call him African-American.

    Also...funny story...I was in London with a couple of colleagues, and we were meeting with a team over there...one of the guys there was black. One of my fellow Americans referred to him as African-American about three times before the guy said <British accent ON>, "Why do you keep calling me African-American? I am neither!". Good times...good times.

    That is total crap, just a bunch of stupid morons jumping on everything they can to stir up $hit. That is about as racist as a jar of jelly.

    It`s a scientific term for an object that is BLACK. It was a hole that is black long before there were people on this earth. What should we call it now? An African American hole? If we do, what about people of color from other nations? They`ll get offended for being left out.

    Get the f*ck over it, that`s pathetic.

    Poor black holes. That man is obviously NOT black, he`s some shade of BROWN, and he is insisting on butting in on the black hole`s turf! Can`t a singularity get a little love? Can`t a brown man leave a black hole alone?

    What is this world coming to, when people hate black holes so much that people who are merely darker than a peachy color think that they must somehow be gravitational phenomenon compacting matter and space? Just by virtue of the fact that when more light is absorbed a color is darker!

    This is a sad, sad day for astronomy.

    Me: "Name any river in Ireland."
    Girl: <head explodes - I buy her another drink>"

    I get the first 2 but u expect us to name rivers? we know beer and thats all we need to know.

    Actually, astronomers theorise that if there are black holes that suck in all matter and light there could possibly be `white` holes that have the exact opposite function. And who said black holes were bad; theyre only called `black` holes because it sucks in all light making it impossible to see and instead a blank area of space is seen. A rather `black` area.

    on to tearing apart this vid...

    political correctness is ridiculous. i hear people say blatantly ignorant things everyday. i ignore it. if people aren`t outright placing themselves above to me and depriving me of a basic right based on their view of my heritage, then yes, i`ll punch them in the throat or something. and some people are just brainwashed to think that race really does make a difference in the class of a human being. but most people have no idea that they`re saying something "wrong". i swear it`s like you have to check everyday for updates to the list of pol. incorrect poo in order to not break any rules. and anyway, the term black hole can never be considered un-pc. if it ever is i`ma blow up the world and move to mars

    I love how black is now offensive! If someone called me white, I would be like *yeah and?!*

    If someone called me an *f`in white guy*... being sworn at is normal, and again I wuld be like *yeah and?!*

    If you ask me... maybe it`s because they are insecure about their colour! It`s something you are born with, something you should be proud of and something that only Michael Jackson can change!

    I go to Malaysia and people check me out because I`m white - I actually get more attention (and more girls!) because I am different. It`s great! - I actually love being white in that environment! Notice how the black dudes always have a cute white girl on their arms -again, it`s because they`re different (disregarding personalities etc).

    If the term `black` is offensive then you need counselling!

    I will now refuse to use the term black hole as I know see that by doing it I am keeping ethnic minoritys in a state of repression.

    From now on I shall use the term `Area of space where matter of all ethnic varieties, religious persuasions and gender choices may be be unable to escape the oppressive gravitation pull contained therein`.

What the hell are you supposed to call a black hole?! It`s black because that`s what things are when light cannot escape them, and its a hole, because things fall into it. Black holes have nothing to do with black people, who don`t even have black skin - they have brown skin! If you compare yourself to a black hole, you are only insulting yourself. Don`t create problems that don`t exist. That`s exactly what caused racism in the first place - stupid people creating problems that didn`t exist!

    you know the only reason issues like this exist are because people like him decide to go all batty about stupid things.. and no i didnt use the term batty in a negative way because bats are black..

    I`ve only read the first two pages, and I didn`t see anyone mention the offense to the term black sheep as well. That, like the term black hole, has nothing to do with race either. The term came about in 18-19th century England. Very rarely, a sheep with black wool would be born.
    Commercially, those sheep are very undesirable because the wool could not be dyed.

    STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT COLOURS!!! white people should be complaining about the way certain members of the black skinned community as in gangsters saying white people trying 2 act black are "too white" or othe black people stereotyping the white man to wear a shirt and tie and talk goofily lots of black comedians do this and get away with it, richard pryor did it.. chris rock i believe has done it and they get away with it...

    @Noggin01:

    So...let me get this straight:

    You`re saying that a *black* sheep is undesirable just because it`s *black*? And that it`s better for it to die? And it`s undesirable for it not to die? All because it`s *black*?

    By the way, I find your use of the term "black wool" to be offensive.


    Also, your use of the word "England".


    ...and "term".

    ok...done

    To clarify the "black sheep" thing:

    Wool used to be one of the biggest economic areas in England. English wool was a major export product and also extensively used in England itself, because it`s cold here in winter. It was a big part of the country.

    Black wool (which wasn`t always actually black) was fairly common but far less expensive because, as pointed out, at the time it wasn`t possible to dye it. Black wool wasn`t taxed, whereas white wool was, which increased the price difference even more. Black wool was very firmly associated with lower socioeconomic classes, which was why it wasn`t taxed and is the connection with "Baa Baa Black Sheep". Clothing made of white wool or dyed wool was an overt statement of wealth in the increasingly money-orientated England of late medieval times. Black wool was for people of lower class.

    So since someone deemed my post too offensive to leave up I shall rewrite my post in a more PC way.
    That gentleman who is of african derivation is acting in a very niggardly fashion. He is being so in relation to the usage of a word. He seems to think that that word is his and his alone to be allowed to others with only his approval. As far as the rest of my original post....It still stands. Just not on this website which thinks that certain things are bad for people to hear. It`s always humorous to see the regular people kowtow to the elite who make up the new social taboos every generation. It is unacceptable in this day and age to say certain things in today`s society because someone might not like it. Do you know that at one time it was unacceptable for a man of color to speak to a white woman? Odd how one generation will commit the crimes of a generation past in the name of freedom. P.S. If you want to bring up the subject of race violence....Anyone remember the L.A. riots?

    It`s called a black hole because space is black and the hole is too so you can`t see it. They`re sneaky buggers. And it was never created to be used as a racist term. There`s something called a white hole too.

    Sh*t like this is what turns people off to claims of racism so that when REAL racism happens, people just overlook it. Stupid politically correct bastards ruining our society, what the f*ck.

    Just because your skin is `black` doesn`t mean you can associate everything black with yourself.
    It`s a giant hole. It`s black. It`s got nothing to do with you.

    Lols "black hole sucks everything in and then all that dissappears" Second rule of thermodynamics states that all matter will remain constant. Ha what an idiot

    Point being how far can ignorance go???????

    Black hole: An infinitesimal point of matter which has an extremely strong gravitational force. Nothing can escape after it passes the event horizon, not even light. This gives the area inside of the event horizon a black color, because we naturally see an absence of light as black. Used as a metaphor, you could say that the tickets were being sucked up, kind of like a black hole sucks up matter. I find it difficult to believe that an educated adult can be so stupid, and personally think that he`s trying to make a case.

    Actually s0rd3dvis1on, the general consensus on the fate of black holes, based upon another principle of Thermodynamics, is that they will eventually evaporate (thus, functionally disappear - not that they were `visible` in the first place) - and thus your point has been further illustrated.
