Black Ops

Ok, let’s get this out of the way. Everyone in your office already knows you’re black (unless you go the Sammy Sosa route) and most likely they’ve already come up with stereotypes based on that. We know, we’ve talked about it here before. The sad part about it is that several of these stereotypes are … Continue reading

TML~The Race Flag?

You ALL know that one guy who blames everything on white people and racism. That one person who screams “racist!” and gets belligerent every time they receive even the smallest slight. Well, this video shows us the solution. The “race flag.” Enjoy
