A Village is Missing Its Idiot

The idiot has been found. The idiot is apparently at Robins AFB making promotional signs.



For those who doubt this is real, and think it is a joke (as I did), here is the proof.

It looks like they changed it, twice.

The new page looked like this:



Now it looks like this:

Toast? In what way? Are they going to 'jam' him up?

Either way, he is going to burn.

I don't know how. From Air Force Times:

"We're deeply sorry for any offense or harm caused by our insensitivity and failure to provide appropriate oversight of our marketing process," Robins spokesman Roland Leach said in an email Thursday. "The flyer does not represent the values, opinions or views of the Department of Defense, the Air Force or Robins Air Force Base leadership and its employees."


See... It isn't anyone's opinion or view. The poster just made itself.

This one is not that bad....it's a bit of a stretch. MLK was from the south and they are serving southern.

I agree. The ROB DFAC used to have Soul Food Thursday, every week. I was there. Great food.

I can see where Earbyte is coming from, though. If this type of food is not usually served, and they're just serving it on MLK Day, it can be construed as being racist.

It's racist to have food from a region where someone is from? So they should have cheeseburgers for MLK and not food from his home state? What about Chinese food? Can that be served on Chinese New Year or.....would that be seen as racist? Jus asking....

Ah, come on.. You know what I am saying.

If a restaurant doesn't usually serve a particular menu, and then they change the menu for a single day, it could be construed wrong.

For example, as I mentioned before, ROB served "soul food" every week. It was a regular part of the menu. If it wasn't a regular part of the menu, and it was just being served because of it being a holiday celebrating black people (or a black person), then I do believe it could be construed wrong. There is a big difference between being construed wrong, and being wrong.

In this "politically correct" environment, in which people seem to get offended for any little thing, one has to be careful.

I loved Soul Food Thursday. There was usually a group of about 8 people that met at ROB on Thursdays just for the food. Good stuff.

But, yes.. I see what you're saying. It is a fine line. If a place that serves hot dogs suddenly serves Chinese food for Chinese New Year, I don't think it is racist. But, I guarantee you there will be people who do.

There was a compliant at a University saying the the the cafeteria was making some country's food so badly and incorrectly that it was racist. I'll have to see if I can find the article. So yeah I guess I know what you mean.
