Default Is it my imagination or is this racist? (pic inside)



Yes, its a doll that looks like a black kid dragging from behind the rear bumper of a pickup. I never caught a look at the driver but the truck looked like the ones driven by the mexican migrant workers. I caught a photo when the truck was stuck at the red light.

yeesh...it looks racist to me. Sometimes things are portrayed differently than the intent.

Once, a Mexican contractor I saw had a sticker with Calvin pissing on a sign that said "America." He received some pretty threatening comments from other workers. The Mexican said that "America" was a soccer team that he didn't like, but saw how it could be offensive and took it down. He probably saved himself some serious problems!

Might as well drive around in a Klan uniform.

I might hope that it's some weird thing like the soccer team thing mentioned above, but that's pretty much asking for (at best) confrontation or (at worst) a bullet.

That's wrong. I bet someone else put it on there as a prank. "Let's see if we can get Pedro's ass kicked, he's driving through the ghetto today. Tee hee!"

maybe he just thought it would be funny to have a little person under the truck and the fact that the doll is black actually doenst have any hidden meaning
