    Memories Pizza has started a wonderful new trend. Bigots playing martyr and draining money from other equally stupid people.

    Why am I wasting my time helping people and getting compensated for it. I should just start an internet company and claim i'm being oppressed by the LBGTOMGWTFBBQ coalition of Amerikan Socialist Communist. That would make it easier to fleece ignorant people through gofundme.

    I've been wrong all along.

    Now, that deli owner is out of his mind. Not quite approaching that of the murderous-planning surgeon, but definitely off his rocker.

    All controversy aside, why don't we have White History Month?

    Really? I don't remember getting any candy or anything.

    It means it can't be taxed.

    Man, I hate it when I set up a stupid joke, and it doesn't go the way I intended.

    Upon further research, it seems that gifts are non taxable only up to about $11,000. Crystal O better set aside some of that dough now.

    Cuz the little bastards live tax free and don't have to work is why. And even worse, when you try to get them to pull their own weight like any good American should, Obama's government steps in and tells me it's "child endangerment".

    I guess he didn't get the memo that "White History Month" is just a mockery of Black History Month.

    While I have no issue with a "White History Month" potentially existing, as far as I know it's currently just a way of ignorant people subtly criticizing Black History Month. Until it is recognized as an actual celebratory month, I too will probably avoid places that have signs like this.

    Sadly, the fact that the media is promoting this story will only allow it to spread and eventually reach people who actually would support this as a worthy cause.

    The guy states that his business wasn't great prior to the sign:
    http://www.gofundme.com/rps5dys

    I don't think it's appropriate to say "white people celebrate all year". There are many white people who do not enjoy "white privilege" such as wealth and good education and are still discriminated for factors other than race. I will not deny that there are equality issues in general between races, I'm not at all saying racial inequality should be ignored, but to claim that all of people of one race have one experience is bigotry itself.

    All that said, this guy deserves to be out of business- either because of his racial bigotry or lack of common sense to realize what he was posting (lack of common sense probably makes running a business difficult).

    from the IRS

    so it looks like the pizza parlor folks aren't responsible for paying any tax on their windfall, rather it's paid by the donors and only by those individual donors who donated more than the $11,000 exclusion

    what? you didn't get invited to the celebration AGAIN? :p

    ...wiping what? :p

    But the payoff would've been great!

    Truth be told, it kinda died off because, for one, no one took the bait quite the way I wanted, and two, I got lazy, and didn't want to build it back up.

    Ahh thank you for that. So my original point stands. Almost a million tax free dollars. She may have not been the first to pull this stunt but she was certainly the most successful.

    Clearly the party planning committee just can't agree on the theme.

    I thought we all settled on theming all our parties around pumpkin spice, guacamole, horses, and WWII fighter planes. You know, the four things universally loved by all white people.

    This has been agreed upon since at least 1741.
