[citation][nom]amabhy[/nom]wtf is up with that picture?that is racism![/citation]
[citation][nom]JerseyFirefighter[/nom]lol.. so why would you choose this photo to represent this topic? Stereotype much??? Rofl![/citation]
[citation][nom]the_krasno[/nom]If this is about the botched bombings, shouldn't the pic be of terrorists?[/citation]
When I first saw the pic I was taken back as well. Tom's uses pics that are sometimes funny, but relate to the topic. If you have never seen "The Wire" then yeah you have the same reaction.
[citation][nom]wonspur[/nom]Im not sure a lot of people knew about that, not even i did. Its easy to take that picture out of context though lol.[/citation]
[citation][nom]TA152H[/nom]Forgetting it's from a show, the interesting part is, the people complaining about the picture, are being racist, since they wouldn't have complained if white people were put there. It's not like there is a pattern.So, in order not to be racist, you always have to show white people when it relates to something bad? Pure hypocrisy.[/citation]
This is just pure idiocy and an excuse to justify any form of racism. The problem isn't the color of the people show, the problem is how it relates to the topic. "The Sopranos" used prepaid cell phones, but they weren't depicted.
Not an attack on the author as I like Jane, but maybe should have put a caption under the pic for those who don't watch the Wire.
