it's news and some of us don't see all the news that's out there. Only one person whined and the rest commented. I feel this way, if you don't like what you're reading turn to the next page or change the channel. I've had enough of this 'P.C.' nonsense.

I go by two rules:

1. If you look for racism, you'll find it.

2. You don't want to know what I think about people who do #1 and post about it on the Internet.

I'm not so naive as to think racism doesn't exist, and like Val, I'm pretty fed up with our PC society. Most of the folks on this forum are old enough to have grown up in a different reality.

And the remarks really don't bother me. If you try to listen to everyone's opinion you will hear people "call it the way they see it". And that, in turn, gives you the right to call it the way you see it.

I'm an oldie and grew up in an Italian neighborhood, we'd call each other wops and guineas back then we were tough and no one got offended. Now people get their panties in a wad and get offended.
They have a drug for that problem.

At least people can see what kind of site goldwingfacts has become. Fortunately, there is no shortage of competent Goldwing sites elsewhere.

Think back to when you were young and you stole something out of a store?
When your parents found out they blistered your bottom for stealing, brought you back to the store to return the item and apologize to the store owner, made you pay the store owner for the stolen item and then gave you a lecture on stealing.
Today there is no discipline in the homes, parents do not know who their children's friends are or where they go to hang out.
Trashing and looting a store is unacceptable. I'm sure if you were the owner or manager of a business you'd feel differently.
True there are other Goldwing forums out there and feel free to join any of them.

Why is it when someone of color breaks the law, and is called out on it, those who complain about them are called racists? Could it be they simply do not like criminals? Why is everything about racism anymore?

I believe its the way the media puts a 'Spin' on it and brain washed individuals follow along.
Not to start a war or pizzing contest, but not long ago on the news an elderly white man was pushed off the bus by a black woman, no one made an issue out of it. Second incident in the news was an elderly white woman being sucker punched by a black man. The media and public make an issue out of certain things.
That's the way I see it and I'm NOT racist, I just call it like it is. I'm tired of the news and the way they report it.
