this is 2009, so playing the race card will get you:
Free arena next year and a grant from the county for 200,000 dollars
East kentucky will now be back..the race card does work in this day and age
Nonsense! If the race card actually worked in this day and age then the economic status of african-americans would be far better than it is now. Your statement makes about as much sense as Demetrius Ford's beforementioned quote. It wasn't appropriate to play the race card--for either of you. Demetrius Ford has made a lot of crazy off the wall remarks over the years and everything he says should be taken with a grain of salt. Remember his back and forth emails with Joe Newman??? Heck! Objectively speaking, he stands on no higher ground than Joe...but the purple kool-aid kept people from even seeing that. Maybe in light of recent events, the fog has cleared.
Ironically, free arenas and money from local governments can be had...but it's not about race.
