“Everyone harass the naive girl in AUSTRALIA who isn't aware of American race sensitivity.”

“Then why choose artifacts and figures from AMERICAN history, specifically as pertains to that sensitive race-based stigma - upon which to base not only her party on but to have people dress up as?
Also, not only do they have bIack people (of African descent, no less) in Australia, last I checked, they also have Aborigines, who, if I remember correctly, haven't been historically treated all that great by this girl's ancestors (and likely her present day relatives, if not herself).
Point being, they also have racial sensitivity issues in Australia as well.
Naivete is not an excuse.”

“So her friends dress up as members of the KKK? Come on. You don't need to understand American race sensitivity not to dress up as a member of the KKK anymore than you need to understand German history not to dress up as a member of the SS. Stop making silly excuses.”

“They don't need to be aware of American race sensitivity. Australians have there own ugly racist history against black aborigines to deal with that should have given this girl enough common sense to not host a party mocking blacks. Additionally, it seems like those Australians were aware enough of American racism to dress up in KKK uniforms. I mean really stop trying to make excuses for dumb white people.”

“Australia could learn a thing or two about race sensitivity. Mixed race children were essentially slaves up until a couple of decades ago.”

“Exactly, they don't have any reason to feel ashamed”
“That stuff is sold wholesale to foreign retailers. Usually from Japan. The japanese then work with a 3rd party handler who pack it in a containers with Nike's or other high tag other products to smuggle into their country avoiding the import charges.”
“Goodwill is about making money, treating disabled employees like trash, and manipulating the public into thinking they are helping said disabled people. Donate to salvation army or a local charity thrift store.”
“On thursday night the 12th I saw what looked like a UFO a few miles west of Mitchell South Dakota (close to the siting). My girlfriend and I both saw it. We joked about it being aliens and tried to think of what it might have been. It didn't look anything like what we had seen in UFO lore. The shape was a triangle with three large domes on the bottom of it. There were not any lights which was the first thing that got our minds spinning. We were only able to see it because of street/blue farm lights reflecting off of it. It was flying low and completely silent. We both had the same sensation which drew our eyes to the dark craft in the sky similar to how you feel someone is looking at you.
The first picture looks to have three domes on the bottom just like what we saw. This is exciting news. Something is flying around that region. Spy plane or aliens?”
