People need to stop nitpicking, looking for racism

Racism? Really? The man said, "Be sure to sign it in Spanish." That just reeks of racism? Come on, it does if that's all you're looking for at all times in everything that is said or done - if you spend your time of day looking/nitpicking everything in order to find and to point out how you've been wronged by other people. You know what I find to be racist? A separate Hispanic or African-American Chamber of Commerce. How about Miss Hispanic Texas/USA? Miss USA has Hispanic-American, African-American and Asian-American contestants. But if a man says, "Be sure to sign it in Spanish" about a document that is in English and Spanish (don't even get me started on why everything has to be in two languages), then he has insulted his Hispanic co-council members. Instead of worrying about city problems, such as saving the people who put them in there money, just nitpick and moan about how you are mistreated. If you feel you've been offended by a person, go to that person and tell them face to face. Don't go public and/or to the press so the race card can be played.
