    Believe it or not, this isn't from the Onion.

    Dallas County meeting turns racial

    A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.

    County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

    Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

    Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."

    That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

    Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster's, is perhaps "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape."

    Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.
    John Wiley Price is quite a character, poor Dallas.

    That psycho congress woman Shirley Jackson Lee is demanding The Feds look into the Grand Jury that DIDN'T find cause to try Joe Horn. That was in Harris County. She didn't come out and say it but she made it quite clear she believed that was racially motivated. Texas is havin some issuz

    ConJinx, Sheila Jackson Lee MUST be a DUer!

    If you want a laugh (or maybe a cry) watch the video:

    Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price is sticking to his comments that the term "black hole," which a colleague used, is racist.Price also says language such as "angel food cake" and "devil's food cake" are also racially insensitive.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Nobody asked this guy about the history of those that banned words, or the origins of the politically correct movement. Screw it, black guy, blackhole, blackmail, blackballed, blacklisted, blackbeard, blackboard, blackness of space, black crayon, like my coffee black, blackscreen, blackeye....
