Not wanting to embarrass myself in front of the children (or the […]

Would You Like Some Religious Intolerance with That?

Over time I’ve culled most of the outright racists from my pool of Facebook friends. Sometimes, though, people post shit like this, intending only to share something they thought funny, failing to see the thuggishness and racism behind the “humor.”

If the message on the sign had been anti-Semitic, my friend never would have posted […]
