Yesterday, I took it upon myself to write a post about the disgusting racist attitude of the owner of Mulligan’s Food & Spirits who proudly sold t-shirts displaying the image of Curious George as Barack Obama. I submitted the pics and the post to Digg.com and to my suprise, encountered a slew of traffic. In a matter of minutes, beginning last night at 10pm, StraightFromTheA.com had over 11,000 hits from digg and today there’s been over 50,000. Because of the unusual amount of traffic, the site has been slower than usual and it’s been difficult to post. There has also been a ton of racist comments and emails received and because of this I am taking the day off today. I am saddened by the blatent displays of ignorance but not suprised, however…I need to get my mind right before I put any words in writing.
I want to apologize to my loyal readers and hopfully things will be resolved by tomorrow.
Thanks to Andisheh Nouraee for the pic above.
