Comment Of The Day - Balloon Juice Edition - Part Something

Balloon Juice » Blog Archive » Black Couple Banned From Marrying at Mississippi Church: "And whilt it might be true what you say, that, “... it may be entirely true that the couple was denied a wedding purely on racist grounds, but one can’t conclude that from this post,” by now, I’m through giving assholes the benefit of the doubt. By now, my feeling is, “If it looks racist, and smells racist, then it is racist.” Too many people like you are willing to look for reasons to wxcuse this kind of shit. I think it’s time that we as a society begin calling this shit out for what it is more widely. Every time something like this happens, too amny people are willing to look for excuses for the assholes who do this. Some yahoo congressman calls the president “uooity” and people buy his lame-ass whining that he didn’t know what it meant. Fuck that. If people want to be racist assholes, then that is their right. But the rest of us have a duty to this country to shun them for it. All decent people in the U.S. need to shun this church."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
