    I have watched with great interest the way a few "regulars" here have steeped all over each other to
    take shots at TBF on JD's behalf. While it would appear that these folks have an unnatural eagerness
    to kiss JD's ass, a more troubling pattern has appeared. JD and his Klan just can't stand to see a
    black man with pride. They think TBF has been uppity and should get back to the back of the bus.

    New millenium? How pathetic. More like the days down south on the plantation.

    Cheap, myopic shot.

    What rot - pride has nothing to do with it, it's about ego, and people that are so far up their own
    arses they can see the backs of their own eyeballs. Any one of us that's 'had a go' at him, would
    take the same shots at someone like that no matter what colour they were.

    I have taken shots at TBF myself, and I am most certainly not racist. It's people like you, who
    cannot seem to see beyond race, to the underlying facts, that unwittingly promote racist attitudes.
    As far as I'm concerned (and no doubt the others too), race is and never was a part of it.

    Now, go sort out your own 'race related' attitudes, and when you can see clearly past 'race', come
    back and retract this utter bollocks.

    Alright, let's all slow down a little bit here. Personally I don't care about racial slanders from
    the likes of JD and his klan.... I give just as good as I get anyday.

    But your right, a few well placed coments to one of those guys angers them enough to let the racist
    undertones slip out. Just take a look at JD, do you actually expect better?

    Perhaps you're too concerned with being PC. TBF has taken a bashing because, in my view, he was
    acting like a dick and he had an attitude. It would seem that it has had an effect, because he's
    been far less confrontational the last couple of days.

    I'm not going to pussy-foot around and make special exceptions just to appease folk like you who
    assume just because I'm having a 'lively debate' with a black guy, that it necessarily has to have
    racist overtones.

    I would hope that TBF sees it that way too, and if I were him, I would not want people treating me
    differently because of my skin colour - isn't that the true definition of racism?

    Oh Bomba I fell like crying, that was so beautifully said...

    But seriously, I know a racist slur when i hear one. My brother and I went to an all-white military
    academy, we kick *ss before and after roll-call. After a few years of that you get to be a good
    judge of who needs to get spanked and who's playing. There were definitely some racist remarks in
    the past exchanges with some of JD's Klan, but nothing to worry about.

    As for the attitude, let's not go calling the the kettle "black" just yet. I've read many posts here
    with the intent of giving others the impression that you guys have been everywhere and know
    everything about mountain biking. That's how all this sh*t started.

    So let's all take a minute and slow the rolls okay!

    Passes TBF a beer and chills......has some cold stella for shaun too. Funny thing is if everyone met
    up in person most of the extremely opinionated people would more than likely be very quiet however
    we would all get along I am sure. Are we not all mountain bikers underneath?

    Simon.........less remarks on hippie stuff, i got long hair :eek:)

    Hmmm. I don't personally know all of you, and I haven't paid much attention to who might be what
    color. I did cringe a little when I saw what was most likely a careless remark which could could
    have been interpreted as a racial slur or possibly an indicator of a poor general attitude in terms
    of racial differences. Chances are it wasn't intended that way but it can be a fine line and the
    stakes are high in these issues.

    What I can say is that I'm not a member of any Klan (maybe my family clan, but that's different),
    but one of the people here I do personally know is JD. While he may come across as abrasive online,
    a racist he is not. Things often get blown out of proportion when something like this comes up and I
    beg of all of you, please let's leave this ugliness behind (and stick to our usual ugliness). If you
    are a racist, then go away or at least keep your stupid, backward thinking to yourself. If you're
    not (as I believe is the case with the majority here) then let's drop it.

    Please.

    Alrighty then, I'll go first...tell your buddy JD that I'm sorry I called him a hippie racist. I'll
    be nicer to him and his boys from now on.

    Right. Denial is a sign that your accusations are true, as would be admission. It's a no-win
    situation.

    Kind of like a witch hunt. Dunk her in the lake and if she lives she's a witch and will be burned.
    If she dies then she's off the hook.

    I'm game if you are. I'll bring my bongos, didgeridoo, and a big fatty (perhaps a few).

    Seriously, we don't all have to get along, but let's be clear about why we treat each other like
    shit. Or at least eliminate a potential reason.

    C'mon let's leave it already.

    BTW: My wife is white, and although I put up with a lot of racism both here in Canada and the US,
    it's not a defining thing in my life. If it was, I would not have married my college sweetheart and
    had a beautiful child.

    Everyone just smooth out a little. I promise not to take anymore days off and stir up sh*t, LOL

    I had no idea that TBF was black and that all the fuss was because of the black guy/poseur photo
    that was posted. Was that you in the photoTBF?

    Obviously I've missed something. What else is new?

    Black as the day is bright lady. I wouldn't sweat it though, it was a slipped racist remark about a
    day ago and everyone got a little hot under the collar.

    oh yeah, that was my picture, we have an amateur racing team up here and it's part of an advertising
    spot for sponsors.

    cool... if it had more skin it might have made it to a thread in an all women's bike foum where we
    are looking for "just for the grrls" bike porn. I posted Jonathna's helmet hair instead that's good
    for a few laughs.

    It's not about race or color or religion... Don't you get it?

    There is a _huge_ difference between being "black" and being a "n!gg&r", it's called ATTITUDE.

    I know plenty of black folks who are the coolest people in the world and I an happy to call my
    friends. My family stayed with/in the home of a "black" family when we visit Memphis. Melvin and
    Olivia are the kindest, most down to earth folks, caring and generous folks we have ever met and I
    am prous to count them as friends.

    Conversely, I see plenty of caucasians who need a serious "attitude adjustment" I simply refer to
    them as "Wiggers".

    I've only seen one, AFAIR. I just didn't like the insinuation that we're all racist because you
    got flamed.

    A lot of people have been all over and the knowledge level is very high. There are guys here who've
    been mountain biking almost as long as I've been alive and in many cases, their words have been
    backed up by their actions, so I'm not exactly sure where you're coming from.

    OTOH, I think you know why a lot of guys stuck the boot in to you.

    > So let's all take a minute and slow the rolls okay!

    Guess that'll be one them 'merkan phrases that means chill out. Fair enough :)

    ROTFLMAO!

    The irony continues to kill 'em.
