  •  Seriously? (2+ / 0-)

     I have noticed that some of my friends are incapable of understanding the most obvious of racist sentiments. It's like they are unable to see that anything beyond "Black people are...negative stereotype" as racist. Racists don't say those kinds of things anymore, because they know they will be ostracized. But their racism comes out consciously or subconsciously. Frankly, calling a Black man a "Black Hole," is pretty damned obvious... Students for a New American Politics!

    •  I thought he was also trying to pun off "asshole" (0+ / 0-)

      And doing a terrible job at punning.

      •  He is (0+ / 0-)

        The idea is that Black Hole is a contraction of Black Asshole.

        And it was Stephen Hawking too, btw.

    •  I don't doubt his intent was racist, (0+ / 0-)

      but I don't see the specific purpose of his comment. It was as if he had created a new racist term, but nobody, or at least not me, understood it. That was my point.
