The stupidity of PC

In yet another sign of the coming Apocalypse, it's now considered to be racially insensitive to use the term "black hole". You heard that right folks, a scientific term that refers to "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape" is now a rascist term.

Sadly, this little incident took place in Dallas County - which just again proves my point that idiots are running the County, but what do I know.

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.
You can't make this stuff up, folks.
