If we were to make stereotypical comments about

Jews, Muslims, Blacks ect.........

we would be put in their place on this board. It seems it must be OK to make comments when it is a place where Conservative, White, Republicans come from.

BAMA, you have every right to feel slighted by these very offensive comments.

Now, being Polish, I will continue to make my pounding on this quarter in front of me (Polish quarter pounder...hehehe)

IMHO, the specific comment being made about the ethnic group/religious group/whatever is more important than the actual group being slagged.

I think the Canadian joke I posted was relatively innocuous, though if anyone seriously objects then I will retract it without complaint.

But regarding the comment "no one from the South should be President," a natural inference (whether it was originally intended or not) is that Southerners are all fundamentalists/racists/etc. So I'm not surprised that Bama took such violent offense at the comment.

rymyx if you want to debate pot resurrect an old thread or start a new one without sidetracking and purposely pissing people off. I thought you were tongue in cheek, but perhaps it is just that some missed it, I was wrong, or perhaps people are just looking for proof their is all this differential treatment in here. Who knows.
