As WorldNetDaily reported last summer, a member of Congress, Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, D-Texas, ignited national controversy when she reportedly sought an affirmative-action plan of sorts for hurricane names.

“All racial groups should be represented,” Lee said, according to the Hill. She hoped federal weather officials “would try to be inclusive of African-American names.”

Thats fuging retarded, he did it as a joke, and he's not "African-American" he's "African" or to be more specific, "South African" which more accurately denotes at a word the idea that hes from a country not a race.

“There is no room at the inn for the viewpoints of conservatives, libertarians, Christians, or constitutionalists in the public indoctrination system,” says David Huntwork, a conservative activist in Fort Collins, Colo., who criticized the squashing of “this gallant expression of grass-roots activism.”

It's gallant? More like goofus

If you think Racism is one-sided, or two-sided, or three-sided (etc..) then you've been sleeping under a rock.

It's everywhere. And all of them are ignorant.

every single person in that situation is acting like a self important ass.

I think the kid was just having fun with the play on words and the idea that "African American" is a somewhat limiting term and we can all learn from each other through thought provoking humor.

But not enough people here have enough of a sense of humor for it to work.
