The most creative novelist on Earth couldn't make this stuff up. Eb, the handyman on Green Acres looks like Perry Mason beside Benjamin Crump. Heck, so does Arnold Ziffel.

Oh, I think one could, but he or she would get excoriated for putting “racism” into his or her novel.

Its ironic that two people who helped incite a modern day lynch mob are being honored by a black themed magazine.

Of course they were deserving - especially in the new and improved United States!

re: “Since we are now in the minority.”

No, no, no, your are not showing the proper attitude. Even if whites are in the minority, they are the OPPRESSING minority and still need to be put in their place.

You’re not being a good cracker. (sacr.)

Good Lord. If I was Tom Joyner, I’d refuse the award out of self-respect.

We also need an Ivory magazine, and a National Association of American Vanilla People, because you know, there are so many shades of white.

The trial isn’t even over yet... this is like Big Ears getting the Nobel Peace Prize on his inauguration, and then not even turning out to be a peacenik.

Infamy on them.

Let’s call it redneck power. Although, if Bill Clinton can be a “black president” then surely we can have rednecks in many colors.
