Welllll... what is UP with that. I know there are some kooks out there. (wait. Is "kook" a racial term? Hang on... wikipedia... AH! Good. It's a "pejorative" for a skateboarder. I think it's safe. I'll leave it. I coulda sworn "kook" was a bad word, but I'm tired of saying "crazy" because there are lotsa nice mentally ill people who aren't so... kooky. Ok, on with the post.) Actually I'm surprised some doo-doo head hasn't thought of doing something like this before.
The thing is...
As I read this, I think something to myself. I'm wondering who these people are that join stuff like that. And howcome? Weren't people friendly enough at their local church / synagogue /mosque/ whatever that they feel like having some fellowship SOMEWHERE and those are the only pickin's left? It isn't like people wake up one day and go... "AH! The sun is shining brightly, the birds are tweeting in the trees, and I think I'll tattoo a swastika on my right arm." Something went wrong somewhere in their proper socialization. Maybe they weren't homeschooled or had all their vaccinations or something (j/k, but you get my point).
And the plot...? I mean, I'm glad they came up with such a STUPID plot, but it was still a plot. I think the people around that area need to know which school was targeted and a little about why these people have this beef against black people. I mean, I'm guessing they have one or why else would they do this? And is there anything that can be reasonably done about it by just regular ol' people?
I think regular ol' people ought to know what's going on. They targeted a SCHOOL? And which children would have been in danger? Hey, just because your kids might not go to a "black" school doesn't mean you shouldn't be up in arms (ok not literally) that this is being kept back from the public and their right to know things that pertain to their personal safety and that of their CHILDREN.
And...? Why is hardly anyone blogging on this? What does it mean if (if) Obama is elected? I mean, I hope he isn't, but I'd also like to know what to expect from people like this. Oh! For that matter, would we have riots in mostly "black" areas if he is not? I've seen other blogs say YES, but I don't know if it's like a stereotype thing or a knowledge these people have of those areas and that's why they say that.
OK, are you seeing stuff on this little news tidbit and what do you think about it?
