    Perhaps you should be a little slower playing your race card.

    Not really fair. We were all duped on this one.

    And the sub-story of why the kid did it is sort of interesting also. Apparently he was trying to cause a distraction from some kind of disciplinary trouble he was in. Have not yet seen all the details.

    "why the kid did it" may be interesting.

    But, there is no excuse for it.

    None.

    Not me. In all of these idiotic racist incidents like this one I always wait until the perp is identified. Too many turn out like this one.

    But this OP will jump an every one as if it is the Gospel before any facts are known just so he can play his race card.

    and right on cue.

    Miller didn't claim there is no racism. He pointed out this instance is a fraud.

    Nice try.

    so I look forward to this much attention being paid to actual racism when and if it occurs; this much outrage, when and if... ( by the same folks that are so outraged by this hoax)

    Believe both conservatives and liberals were outraged with Air Force Academy event when it was initially reported.

    Unfortunately it has turned out to be a hoax. Which equally unfortunately adds a little to cynicism when the next racial incident is reported.

    Doesn't suggest dismissal of any future reports. Just that these kind of hoaxes/stunts poison the well and can generate skepticism next time. Human nature.
    Thanks from Goofball

    yeah well, excuse my French. But...BULLSHIT.

    Let's just be honest here. Shall we? Don't they give people who are inclined to be "skeptical" an excuse to indulge it? Is that what you mean by "human nature"? Because it sound more like intellectual dishonest.

    Yep. I'm being honest.


    Don't really have a clue what coded message you're trying to transmit....
