San Francisco police officers are being asked to combat racism in the ranks and take a pledge to turn in colleagues displaying intolerant behavior, such as slurs and jokes targeting people of color, gays and women.
The pledge is part of a broader public relations campaign by the embattled police department to repair frayed relations with minority neighborhoods and community activists.

AIN’T OBAMUNISM GREAT???
Cops should go on a three day sick out and see how all those “insulted, sensitive” citizens fare.

“Tolerance:” The inability to say Yes or No. The inability to take a stand.
Lactose intolerance will not be tolerated.
Are minority quotas and lower standards for minorities racist according to this pledge?
Keep going. You'll get to Hitler's blood oaths soon enough. Then you can graduate to full fledged Nazis.
