This is a note apparently found on the front door of a McDonald's franchise.














The 800 number on the note goes to Kentucky Fried Chicken.Turns out more than a few people believe everything they read on the internet. http://eater.com/archives/2011/06/13/mcdonalds-isnt-actually-charging-african-americans-150-extra.php

Hooks, you trying to stir up trouble, just when things have quieted down? ;)

You do bring out a good point - people see that and immediately believe it, without checking the facts. The internet isn't making people smarter, it's making them stupid and reactionary.

dasIt's not making them anything. People with poor critical thinking skills (99% of humanity) act stupid. That's it.

Agreed...but there is SO much stupid on the internet, it just seems like the whole Idiot Revolution has exploded over the past decade. It's bringing out the 'sleeper' idiots - the ones who have been dormant all these years and only need one thing to trigger them into action. It's all rather scary.

Stupid is as stupid does.The only difference is that the internet allows for their stupidity and misinformation to spread much farther and faster than traditional media. Just like TV did as compared to print. I think the internet might be too fast for us, though. We're in trouble.

I was watching this porno last night where the plot was that this group of neo-nazis harrass this group of black guys, the black guys kick their asses and make them their sex slaves.

During the movie the N word gets used a LOT by the white guys, especially during sex.


So, I'm thinking while watching this, if at any point anybody whether it was black or white was like "You know, this language makes me really uncomfortable"
