    Apparently, it's so bad someone has to lose their job.

    I must of missed something, because I don't know. What's worse, even if I did know, I wouldn't be offended on my or somebody else's behalf

    No idea. I guess it might help to know what the below are and (presumably) what stereotype they portray.

    These ornaments, which have since been taken down, included packets of Takis and FunYuns chips, Newport cigarettes, a Popeye's Chicken cup and some police tape.
    In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

    I still do not get it. Are they 100% exclusively used by one demographic?

    I don't get this at all. If such decorations are deemed to be racist why are they on sale?

    I heard that the officer(s) responsible for this heinous crime have not yet lost their jobs, because they have to go through a proper disciplinary process, but the mayor still thinks it will end in them being sacked, so obviously the process is superfluous.

    The United States (there is no America any more) is in the grip of political insanity. Expect more incidents like this. It's the Victim Culture.

    As I feared the world is getting dumber and people are just getting really sensitive and looking for any excuse . For a start racism is subjective and the ''victim'' is often just being over sensitive .
    The only reason we think racism exists in words is because we made it exist by subjectiveness .

    Let's make it clear to the world ,

    If somebody calls you black , white ,yellow or whatever , because you look black , white or whatever , then thats fact not racism .

    I may consider using that as my signature, it's absolutely brilliant
