Quote from: the article
Later, her friend stopped by the bakery and said Kefalinos corrected her about the name of the cookies—they're actually drunken "N-word" cookies. She says the backwards baker then repeated the dark suggestion that, like Lincoln, President Obama "will get what's coming to him." Go Secret Service, go!

here's a conundrum: do you think that they actually said "n-word" cookies, or did they said the actual word?  If they said the actual word, should it really be in quotation marks?  also, is that word so vile that it shouldn't even be used in the context of a quote in a news article? (although, to be fair they probably would have said "the f-word" or "s-word", so that last one probably really doesn't apply here.)
Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

It shouldn't be in quotation marks, right? Shouldn't it be in brackets or something? Help... Saraaaaahhh!! 

And who is this creep Kefalinos? Is this even real?

Now I feel bad for poking fun at Alabama during my recent trip there by asking when their next Klan rally would be taking place. The real culprits are down the block from me. Great.

The difference between the north and the south is that in the south, this wouldn't be news. It would be a dessert your grandma created the recipe for.

No, the difference is that the South has actually had to face up to its racist past, to make amends.  To endure scrutiny.  The rest of the country, most of which has no idea what it's talking about, gets to make stupid statements like the one above.  And wallow in its own racism.

My state hadn't voted for a Democrat since 1976.  NC voted FOR the first black major-party candidate, when it wouldn't vote for the effete jackass snob 4 years ago (hell, I voted for Kerry, but NC didn't). 

Don't talk about something you only know from documentaries and anecdotes.

Speaking of racism, look how those awful Southerners and their grandmas took to the streets to beat up black people (and people who they wrongly thought were black) in the streets of Atlanta Jackson well, read to find out where...

How did that speech go over at the Klan rally? Not very well I bet.
