Unfortunately Retief2000, there is no post-racial world. It appears to some that having a multi-racial President/person with any visible color as President has really emboldened some who have bias or hatred in their hearts.
It seems obvious to many the direction of that bias as people like Oprah vomit comments like whites don't value black lives.It is obvious in the hatred aimed at rodeo clowns who now face job loss and reeducation camps.
There's no way I could ever agree with that rodeo clown who wore a mask of the President's face. I'd feel the same if he wore a mask of Reagan, Bush, Clinton, etc. That was off/offensive to many. As for jobs he can only apologize to his coworkers.
There was an entire British satire called Spitting Images that mocked political figures.I couldn't disagree more.It is our natural right protected by the First Amendment to mock and ridicule our political leaders.There is no right to not be offended.
Many people believe the office of the President shouldn't be disrespected & that's why the clown got himself & other people fired. We have free speech but sometimes having more restraint is a better route to take. I agree to disagree with you
It doesn't matter what many people think, it is the law of the land.We are not ruled by mobs but by laws, or at least we used to be ruled by laws.Free Speech is our natural right, despots hate that.
