There are several, which is really irrelevant (or should be, at least).
What I find interesting is that outside of one person who is black and
has a history of exhibiting hypersensitivity about the actual statistics
of blacks in US society, everyone else who is claiming my comment was
racist were individuals who have similar habits of vilifying people for
politically incorrect statements, and similarly ignored the rest of my
post which that comment was in, which, if taken in context, would have
illustrated that it was simply a rather critical opinion of the value of
40 acres and a mule in the market today, and quoting a punch line from a
skit by a popular black comedian used in a similar context.
