    "Stories like this always bring the bigots out."

    Of course it does...since anyone that would say anything remotely true, even if it's done in a jestful manner is considered a racist, or bigot. We get it, and no longer care you liberals think that!

    Don't you hate it when one of your friends gets shot and you are so busy that you just drop them off at the hospital and leave as quickly as possible? The driver probably had to pick up his dry cleaning or take his grandmother to church.
