The Bell Curve, again...

by Swans

The other day we were at our local bookstore, looking for an essay by some famous unknown, when we overheard a conversation. Just two middle-aged men venting their frustrations about the state of cleanliness of their office. It went like this:

- Can't believe it, my trash can was left unattended once again!
- Yep, mine too.
- Well, that's what you get when you hire Blacks to do a job... The only thing they were built to be good at is sports...

We listened no further. And so, in this planet of the White Guys, inhabited by White Trash, we leave you with this quote and wish you a good weekend.

"I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thank you for reading!
