Why weren’t they laughed out of the room?
Certain black ((People born in the US are American. People born and raised in Africa who then emigrated to the US are African-American. No one in this story seems to have been born or raised in Africa, so they cannot be African-American. )) politicos in the vicinity of Dallas, Texas, are either colossally ignorant, or they are engaged in a devilishly clever scheme cause anyone who ever cries “Racism!” again in the future to be laughed out of the room (þMichelle Malkin):
[Dallas County] 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.
[Dallas County] 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.”

If you think that individual trusts you enough to tell you what he actually thinks, put in earplugs beforehand.
