    Lynum: 'White Boy' Is No Racial Slur
    Profiling Victims Urged To Call Police Chief

    POSTED: 7:11 am EDT June 29, 2006
    UPDATED: 1:54 pm EDT July 1, 2006

    Orlando Commissioner Daisy Lynum insisted she did nothing wrong when she called a city officer who pulled over her son a "white boy," and continued her crusade against racial profiling Wednesday night, according to a Local 6 News report.

    "In the last week, I have been called (expletive) more times than I have ever been called probably in my life for calling a white boy a white boy," Lynum said. "Now, when did that become a racial slur."

    lol. This brings to mind Chris Tucker's movie Money Talks.
    I have no idea what Charlie Sheen's character name was on the flick bc Chris kept calling him "white boy" (I enjoyed it).

    Really? Well that's a new development. I actually live with a few w**** b*** (in a townhouse/dorm). I didn't know those w*** b*** considered w*** b** to be offensive. Perhaps I should stop calling the w**** b*** w**** b***.

    **thinking**

    Nah, because there was no debate when we were calling him Masta...

    they are trying to make a reality where people can feel sorry for the police but its all deception because b4 they can have the nerve to ask a black person to apologise for anything the question is how much of an apology, justice are black men due by the police that brutalise black males everyday? what punishment should the police and the government get for that? id love for them to answer that question
