Every Thang's Gonna Be All White!!!


I still get a kick out this. If you're not familiar with this story, back in 2001, the students at the University of Northern Colorado named their intramural basketball team "The Fighting Whities". The team comprised of American Indians, Hispanics and white guys and they did this as a satiracal commentary on a local high school's team American Indian mascot.

The team chose the name after it couldn't persuade a nearby school to abandon its nickname, the Fightin' Reds, and the American Indian caricature on the team logo.

Pretty funny, if you want to buy something from them, go here.

Dude, as a black guy, I think that is pretty funny. Can you get any whiter than that logo? Most of the people here on our floor at Microsoft got a kick out of it except my Eng. mgr, and he's a white dude.

And another thing, as far as being a racsist, that doesn't even make sense, read my profile, I am married to a Mexicana and am related to about 400 Mexicans.....and love them all.

There's always a righteous one.
Hear the buzz word ….sharp response and indignation.

Janice d...why don't you read things properly and then think twice before you say something sooo silly? Obviously, you didn't see the picture of Joe Gringo's beautiful cinnamon skinned, brown eyed babies...if he was a racist, those children would have never been born! Just remember, life is short and if you don't find the light side of it, by the time you realize how much you wasted, it may be too late.
