There is so much nonsense, and plenty of racist nonsense, in this thread, that it is hard to know where to begin. Unskilled laborers making $130,000? Baloney. Anyone who traces the decline of Detroit to Democratic mayors and leaves out the most dominant industry, which effectively controlled public policy, has an agenda and little history on his side. Back in the day, the generalization was that football players were buzzcut love it or leave it yahoos and runners were sort of anti-authoritarian free spirits. The racist dipshits on this thread show that there are plenty of runner yahoos. Ugh. Go play football.
Just so you know, there are anti-authoritarian, free-spirited racists in the world. There are also buzz-cut love-it-or-leave-it yahoos who are models of racial harmony.
