Personally, i think that the term "white ignorant asshole" is pretty
racist, is it not? aren't you being fairly hypocritical?
also, for your sake, i hope you don't get this upset whenever someone
has to somehow point out a difference in skin color
(not that it would ever matter, who cares about a person's skin color?

On the actual topic itself, i agree with bagder.
