Found via Angry Asian Man. I really appreciate that he doesn't mince words. I dont' know why, but it's really refreshing to see an analysis end with "That's racist!" Because, you know? It is.
Moving on, though- I have a question. Why is it that so many people named Roy turn out to be jerks? I hadn't met anyone else with my name until I started working in auto-body shops in high school. The two guys I met there were both kind of jerks. And most of the people I've met since then who've shared my name? Asshats. Hell, even the fictional characters named Roy tend to be sort of obnoxious. Seriously, why is it that almost everyone that I share my name with, turns out to be a total asshole?
And now this dipshit is appealing the case. What an ass. I can only hope that the commission that is looking at his request for a 10-year term on the bench denies his request.
Oh, but I love some of the coverage of this. Legal cases involving clothes are funny- he's filing a suit? Heh. Oh, and check out this pun-tastic headline: "Dry Cleaners Cut Plaintiff Some Slack". Heh. That headline still makes me giggle. Get it? Because the whole case is over a pair of pants that needed alterations? Cutting slacks? Brilliant. Oh, and the first line is equally puntastic: "The dry cleaners aren't pressing their case against the Pants Judge." HA! Pressing! Gods, that's comedy gold right there.
I should have made it clearer. Angry Asian Man didn't suggest that this particularly case was racist (and I don't think that it was either). If you read through some of his other posts, you'll see instances of him talking about something and finishing with "That's racist!"
His take on the Roy Pearson story is here.
