And that poster's not racist at all. Nope, not one little bit. Jeez.

The picture is all wrong, it would be better if were a picture of a fraternity house with lots of a affluent college guys and girls, drinking, smoking pot and having a kick-ass time.

2 whites, 2 blacks, 2 hispanics.. racist?

seems pretty accurate to me.
Texas Prison Population by Race..
Anglo 30.9
Black 43.5
Hispanic 25.2

Anon got to it before I could, glee make sure you look past the first row before determining a picture is racist.

It's the implied threat, guys -- nice clean-cut white boy menaced by big thuggy-lookin' brown folk. My eyes work just fine -- it's the initial impact you're meant to notice, not the technical, token count of Caucasians salted into the frame.

These types of posters are dumb, anyway -- did any kid, EVER, decide not to do a bong rip because of that fried-egg "this is your brain on drugs" TV spot? Durr.

I don't think you decide to do drugs because you are certain race, get past it and read the message!

There has always been something about it that stuck out at me. Kind of a "Hey, white kid, don't do drugs or we'll throw you in jail AND we all know the jail is full of blacks and hispanics." But, the math, as pointed out above, it probably correct.

Blah blah blah . . .Everybody white is a racist. Everybody else is a victim. Yawn.

I wasn't going to get into this one, but once I saw that gleemonex got bitch-slapped, I had to give Anon 11:36 ^5.

Notice that no matter what the picture had, according to Liberals it was "racist"

Numerically racially-balanced set of threatening inmates = "racist"

White boy being jailed = "racist"
Brown boy being jailed = "racist"
Black boy being jailed = "racist"

The hypnotic and chronic overuse of the term by Liberals has devalued it. Especially when it should be used to describe those people who judge people primarily by race - like Liberals.
