Here is a picture posted on the facebook wall for WCBC RADIO.

WTF are you thinking???

That was my own immediate thought!!!

On my own wall I posted this too...

I do not know what to think of it, however it was removed immediately, but not after I already captured the picture?

They too must have thought this was a huge mistake too, but I saw and captured the picture and code too.

What do you think about this?

I may feature this in my next article and appreciate the candid feedback.

I am very interested in some feedback...thanks

Here is their link on facebook.

So, I posted this question to there wall on facebook.

I also posted this immediately to their page as well.

May I ask candidly why the "auction" picture you had posted was immediately removed?

Here are the two sides to the dividing line I see personally, as explained below. all with the appropriate links so given for your own due diligence.

How inappropriate I believe this is, and I for one do not find this to be a laughing matter, but a matter of shear ignorance on their part.

Just the fact that it was posted and removed so fast was amazing to me.

I felt fortunate that I did capture the picture to share.

I have said many times I would rather be wrong and look like a crazy fool then to be right in instances like this.

I speak up and stand up and I voice my opinion and share what I feel.

I intuitively know right from wrong, as this "original poster" must have as well with the quickness in which it was removed, and kudos for that alone.

Sometimes we all have moments of sticking our own feet in our mouth...I know I sure have, however this is ridiculous and I hope will be an example of what to post and share versus what not to post and share.

If I myself am wrong, I will accept that blame and apologize and rectify my actions and learn that there is truly no place for inappropriate behaviours.

So until then, I am waiting on an answer from them, and I am waiting on your valuable feedback.

Perhaps this can be a candid modern discussion of what this digital revolution is all abut, and how quickly it can turn ugly when we react with emotion rather then thought when anything at all may strike a chord within us either personally or collectively.

I am thankful at least that this has made me look deeper into myself and the mechanisms at work within that perhaps need a tune up or overhaul from time to time, as I know no one is perfect, but for crying out loud, use some common sense!

But after all,

"Common Sense Ain't So Common !"
Racism is usually defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior.[1][2][3]
The exact definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about the meaning of the concept "race", and because there is also little agreement about what does and doesn't constitute discrimination. Critics argue that the term is applied differentially, with a focus on such prejudices by whites, and defining mere observations of racial differences as racism.[4] Some definitions would have it that any assumption that a person's behavior would be influenced by their racial categorization is racist, regardless of whether the action is intentionally harmful or pejorative. Other definitions only include consciously malignant forms of discrimination.[5] Among the questions about how to define racism are the question of whether to include forms of discrimination that are unintentional, such as making assumptions about preferences or abilities of others based on racial stereotypes, whether to includesymbolic or institutionalized forms of discrimination such as the circulation of ethnic stereotypes through the media, and whether to include the socio-political dynamics of social stratification that sometimes have a racial component. Some definitions of racism also include discriminatory behaviors and beliefs based on cultural, national, ethnic, caste, or religious stereotypes.[3][6]
Racism and racial discrimination are often used to describe discrimination on an ethnic or cultural basis, independent of whether these differences are described as racial. According to the United Nations convention, there is no distinction between the terms racial discrimination and ethnic discrimination,and superiority based on racial differentiation is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous, and that there is no justification for racial discrimination, in theory or in practice, anywhere.[7]
In politics, racism is commonly located on the far right, along with nativism and xenophobia.[8] In history, racism has been a major part of the political and ideological underpinning of genocides such as The Holocaust, but also in colonial contexts such as the rubber booms in South America and the Congo, and in the European conquest of the Americas and colonization of Africa, Asia and Australia. It was also a driving force behind the transatlantic slave trade, and behind states based on racial segregation such as the USA in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries andSouth Africa under apartheid.[9] Practices and ideologies of racism are universally condemned by the United Nations in the Declaration of Human Rights.[10]

Humour or humor (see spelling differences) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humors (Latin: humor, "body fluid"), control human health and emotion.
People of all ages and cultures respond to humour. The majority of people are able to experience humour, i.e., to be amused, to laugh or smile at something funny, and thus they are considered to have a sense of humour. The hypothetical person lacking a sense of humour would likely find the behaviour induced by humour to be inexplicable, strange, or even irrational. Though ultimately decided by personal taste, the extent to which a person will find something humorous depends upon a host of variables, including geographical locationculturematurity, level of educationintelligence andcontext. For example, young children may favour slapstick, such as Punch and Judy puppet shows or cartoons such as Tom and JerrySatire may rely more on understanding the target of the humour and thus tends to appeal to more mature audiences.
