Ah...I see that you didn't have a 'fro in the 70's? I made a joke, and you just made it a racial slur. funny how you can do that, perhaps you should teach the rest of the nation, so that you can rise to the top of the charts and get a job in Obama's cabinet at the Racial Czar??

It wasn't racial, you made it so
