Wow, you gleened democrat in an inter-racial marriage who enjoyed plastic spoons (occassionaly silver colored) during his single-parent, working class childhood? You seem really fucking astute.
Despite the questionable application of black-face, that costume is pretty funny on account of McLooty's a bit of a cultural icon. If you can't laugh at the expense of someone who loots a box of Henikens in the wake of a natural disaster, what can you laugh at?
Sorry, it was a little below the belt to assume you were a republican. Just playing the odds. It is interesting though that you understood what I was implying. Are you married to an asian, there is a funny joke about chinese/japanese/vietnamese etc drivers; married to a latino, there is a funny joke about swimming across the Rio Grande; married to an African there is a funny joke about this overweight ethiopian,etc,etc,etc. Dont know if you have kids, but if you do, wait until they are in school.
Those jokes suddenly start to take on a different tone. But hey its just a tough darwinistic self-centered uncivilized world out there anyway. Those jokes will toughen them up. FYI my last long term relationship was interracial. We lived in Texas, Indiana and now here. I witnessed first hand the effects of both subtle and not so subtle racism. I wish we had lived in the Utopia you are living in.
Something tells me that kid in the picture wouldn't be running around dressed up like that in New Orleans. If he did it would actually make for an interesting You-Tube clip. Again I'm sorry I implied you were a republican. Its too bad about the spoons being plastic... Precious metals pricing
