Does this offend you?


It was something that came with my Detroit Free Press today.
It seems racists to me.
I'm tempted to contact the company that puts this out and ask for the "European American" edition.

It wouldn't be offensive if you knew you could find the one that says WHITE AMERICANS on wheels and read that and not be called a racist. The double standard is what makes it offensive.
How about if they had a magazine for guys who dive big trucks just because they want to and pass the cost to their customers. lol You should be lauging your ass off right now.

I thought motor trend, car and driver, road and track were all the white guys on wheels mags.

I wonder if they will interview Lewis Hamilton and call him an african american.

http://guns.connect.fi/gow/arcane1.html see if that will tell you how to handload quieter bullets. I do have a combo to make a 175 gr swift A frame fire at 3100 fps out of a 7mm remington magnum. think that will take out a white tail?

Double standard. They're allowed. Get over it.

I bet if you came out with a mag that was European Americans you'd be okay. Mainly becaused you'd look retarded. But if that would make you crackers happy then do it.

And then some. Are you shooting deer at 500 yards or what?

I saw a guy shoot a little button buck at 60 yards with a 300 Win Mag. Lost the whole far side front quarter with an exit wound you could throw a softball through. A .30-30 gets it done.

I'd only shoot at 300 pounders with that load. Go to youtube and type in 1000yd antelope shot its cool. theres also a 850 yard elk kill and two other 1000 plus yard antelope shots

To answer your question

NO, I am not an overly sensitive hypocritical bastard like the folks that would take offense to the reverse of that.

I think it's bullshit, but whatever...I'm not going to change the world.

I find it more funny that the Malibu is the "Urban Car of the Year," when the only place you'll really find it is in the suburbs. :tonka:

Real urban cars are 1980's heavy chevys.

Actually in the 'hood today, it's Chrysler 300s (with 22s), Chargers (with 20s), JKs, and full-size SUVs.
