@CoyoteKing: Ieee! I'll never look at those signs the same way again!

Subtle racism! Very subtle indeed! (lolz!)

HAHAHA!!! That councilwoman is a f*cking idiot! The kid tells her it's not negative, it's just meant to show the difference and the dumbass still insists it's "offensive."

The thing here is, no one is born racist, it's taught, and this is exactly how it's taught to them. The color of the stick figure doesn't represent race to the kids, they just had to use 2 different colors so that's what they picked 2 f*cking colors. By crying "racism" this councilwoman is teaching the kids to start thinking that way.

If the black stick figure is a black person then I guess the gold one is supposed to be C-3PO.

You've been subjecting us with crap from there for weeks.


@markust: #1 I only suggest, @FancyLad and/or @The_Mods post it for me.
#2 Look at my latest 25 posts: 1? 2? are from The Blaze? That covers the past 3 weeks...

This one is NOT "from The Blaze" so just "get over it" already!

I was going to "let it slide" but you besmirched my reputation! Besmirched I tell you!

@gary8162: Yes!
And if it had been a white stickman? Then that would mean blacks are incapable of learning!
Racism!

You know who's 'golden'? Ponyboy is golden!

TO RICK_S: If you make the stick figure blue you may upset The Blue Man Group. Everyone needs to get a grip and stop being so uptight. This being offended by every little thing is getting real old, real quick.

"@markust: So now you're offended if Glen Beck EVEN COVERS THE SAME STORY? Gosh you're getting mighty fussy over there, might want to take a "chill pill" and relax bro!"

Right. You know you saw this at The Blaze. I know you saw this at The Blaze. You've been subjecting us with crap from there for weeks. It's sensational BS that I would rather not see.

I suppose this couldv'e been avoided if the woman had said the figure represents being bereft or empty of knowledge while the gold represented the enrichment of knowledge. But it sounds like the "dark" councilwoman would've still pounced on that by saying "So it represents blacks as being stupid?"
This woman has a serious chip on her shoulder, maybe deservedly so but not based on what is seen here.

I honestly get a little sick of all the race card nonsense. People these days get offended by anything. In fact, I'm positive this comment has offended at least one person.

If the stickman was pink nobody would cry racism.

@NNoamfer: Then it would be homophobia

And what race is golden?

NNoamfer: Canadians...

This is life imitating South Park. The council woman who took offense is black. She should have backed down immediately. This is the kind of false outrage 5Cats reads every day at Glenn Beck's The Blaze (quick check shows it is the lead "story"). Although he linked it through the original source he's still subjecting us to mind numbing drivel. I'm coming here less and less because of this kind of sensational crap.

So every time I draw a stick figure using a black pen, pencil, crayon, or marker, I must make sure it is the biggest figure on the page or I am racist?

Get a life.

>>Racism often is in the eye of the beholder. <<

BS. Treating someone differently based on their race is racism. Period. It is either or it is not.

What can be a judgment call is if the actions or behavior taken / exhibited by a person toward another were the result of race or not.

Didn't some council person get all pissed once at the mention of 'Black Holes'?

Ah, nothing like keeping racism alive by being racist. Here's a teachable moment for the kids - there are racist lefties in the world who will judge you guilty purely for the color of your skin. Don't let them continue to ruin the world.

drat me, what an idiot. The black stickman was obviously not a representation of a race, just a representation of a simple man, since a simple stickman is colored black. If the stickman was pink nobody would cry racism. And what race is golden? It would have been racist if he became white or any other race to be better. A black person is as golden as a white person.

Not racist at all - it had to be some color and that's all black is is another one of the colors....

For drats sake, its racism because that woman is a horrifying racist and decided that the figure which was black was the kids calling black people lessers.

The video: The interesting bit starts at about 2:00 and ends at about 3:30 for those with no patience...

Racism often is in the eye of the beholder. I can see how going from black in the negative to gold in the positive could be taken as racist. Redo the one square with a blue stick figure, and the problem is solved.
