I just returned from the festivities downtown, and I have to express how downright furious I am at what I saw tonight. Apparently our Fall Ride brings out the most ignorant, closed minded *ssholes. I saw several people (maybe local, maybe not) wearing shirts with, for example, a swastica, and the words "proud member of the master race", or another that had a picture of adolf hitler and said "when i come back, no more mr. nice guy". now i'm all for free speech, but this is beyond acceptable. capitalizing on hatred and prejudism is sick and wrong. I urge everybody who reads this to NOT support any vendors who market this racist garbage. Don't buy a shirt from their stand. Don't allow them to set up on your property. Theres a point where somebody has to say enough is enough. I thought the fall ride was about enjoying motorcyling. "Colorama" should be about appreciating the outdoors and having a good time, not instigating racial bias.
