« Verizon Changes Its Mind | Main | Another Official Turned Blind Eye to Contractor Fraud? »

I want to say that I'm surprised, but I guess I'm not. I guess I'm only surprised that anyone allowed him to say it on the air and no one stopped him.

I also want to say that I've heard similar things all my life and while, yes, they were mostly from Southern people, mostly Bill's age, you would might be surprised to learn that they come out of the mouths of young people and folks in the North as well. Usually they are said by ignorant but sometimes otherwise intelligent people who are just experiencing something new in real life for the first time rather than a taught negative stereotype.

And I have to add that while my parents might be among the ones that have occasional slips of verbal stupidity, I am forever grateful that somehow they raised me colorblind enough that I was surprised to learn as I got older that there were negative stereotypes.
