Black Hole Is A Racist Term, So Is Angel Food Cake

THE term “black hole” is now considered racist.

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections “has become a black hole” because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud “Excuse me!” He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a “white hole.”

That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

Price also says language such as “angel food cake” and “devil’s food cake” are also racially insensitive. There’s a video.
