    I guess if you pushed me, I would say Iím not surprised. But itís still jarring to see an issue like that in your home state. One that prides itself on being nice.

    And somehow he's not dead yet. He doesn't strike me as a guy who's ordering the salad, either. The constant adrenaline triggered by his fear of the Muzzies must keep his heart going.

    It's called White Cloud for a reason.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I went up there for softball for about a decade. Also visited friends up there many a time. It's not AL, but it's definitely not okay by today's standards as far as race.

    But there are racists in every town everywhere.
    But we're white cloud and st. Kkkloud...
    It's wrong to generalize based on the actions of morons.

    Like Muslims, or gun owners, or.....

    I can say for sure that Sartell is all sort of backwoods (for the non-MN, a next-door suburb of St Cloud). St Cloud is pretty bad, though.

    Dude you clowns can kiss my butt. This isn't just a St. Cloud problem...this is an EVERYWHERE problem. Using this as a reason to poke fun at us is disgusting.

    Trouble is, in St Cloud it's been like this for DECADES. I first heard "White Cloud" when *I* was in college, and it was an established nickname back then.

    And again...maybe it is...but I live here...and it sure doesn't look as bad as anywhere else I've lived.
    But it also shouldn't come as a shock that people who did not grow up around or with people of color may end up with moron attitudes about them.
    My issue is the generalizations of the town as the problem.
    It's not the city...it's the sick morons spouting hatred...

    So?
    Yeah there were swastikas spray painted in bathrooms here almost 20 years ago.
    You think nothing has changed?

    Who live in that city. Hey, Alabama isn't racist or anti abortion. It's just the people who live there. Honestly, take a step back and listen to what you're saying.

    No, not really. I know you aren't racist. I know your wife (wink) isn't racist. However, there are a LOT of openly vocal racists in St Cloud.

    Again...my issue is the sweeping generalizations used about us because of the sick hatred of morons.
    The city IS getting better...you dont live here to see it.
    The people in that article have issues...big ones...generalizing them to attitudes of the whole area is a problem....and yes you are doing it.

    My guess is no...nice soft example though.
    But don't think we aren't going to lash out when called racists as a collective.
