Let's see. Ethnicity??? Gender???? Why go there??? I guess if you are a sociologist you have to try to pretend that everyone thinks that every human being has the same value. Newsflash: The stupid ones are not worth as much. Promise. Why talk about it in terms of ethnicity and gender???? That is not what it is really all about. I think the American public would be much better served if you used the terms "dumb bast . . . . " and "dumb bitc . . . ." In fact, I'm wondering if there are any more hurricanes coming so we can tell a bunch of the dumb ones that it would be a good time to go picnic at the beach.
