Everything is Racial
If I didn't know better, I'd assume this story was a parody:
ARLINGTON, Va. - There's a new turn in the debate over high occupancy toll lanes or HOT lanes. A lawsuit filed by Arlington County last month claims the lanes benefit wealthy white people and discriminates against minorities. While the only rule to get in the HOV lanes on Interstate 395 is you must have three people in the car, Arlington claims adding HOT lanes would cut out poor and minorities by defacto.What?
There is an old quote regarding arguing a case in a court of law: "If facts are on your side, pound the facts. If the law is on your side, pound the law. If neither is, pound the table." I guess a new corollary to that maxim is if you have no argument to make then cry racism. I could be wrong, but I think we are close to reaching a tipping point on the BS racism claims. If we get to the point that everything is racism then nothing is racism. In other words, if people went outside every day rain or shine and scream "It's raining" over and over then in time the word rain would cease to have any meaning.
