Tom & all other interested listers,
There is nothing racist in reciting a statistical fact. I am one of the few
minorities on this list and was born and raised in the Peoples Republic of
Massachusetts. The statement does not make much sense. What exactly were you
getting at Tom? Because at the same time Massachusetts lost 10% of its white
population, it has been replaced rapidly by minorities with Latinos & Asians
leading in numbers. I think the lack of clarity and or overly sensitive and
politically correct listers are trying to make this a Trent Lott foot in the
ass like thread.
PS: Trent should go! If you are stupid enough to let your segregationists=
views known to the nation and not expect a backlash from everyone except the
racists you socialize with, you do not have the tact to be majority leader.
The Republican Party seems to be suffering more and more residual effects
from the lack of IQ and vision in oval office.
