    Loud black women? No way, that is some right wing racist stereotyping there!

    The real question is whether a group of white women, or Asian women, or Eskimo women would have been kicked off the train for being too loud. If so, then no harm no foul.

    If you're in charge of something in the US today, as soon as you get to work, start apologizing. You can find out what for later.

    The new American way, don't act right. Get punished. Cry racism. Get apologies and rewards.

    A judge will be along shortly to overhaul that racist bunch.

    I've been on that train and all around Napa Valley vineyards. You start cutting up to the point that you're piercing the ears of everyone around you, your ass is outta there (by "there" I mean the train, a tasting room or other venues in the area where folks expect a relaxing experience). But hey, anywhere the race card can get a little traction in today's political and social climate, and you can bet it'll be played and played hard.

    Now that an apology has been officially issued, I can hear the stampede of lawyers on the horizon. I hope the train tour can survive - it's normally a lot of fun.

    Here's a question: If the black women had been allowed to continue on with their party and after the ride ended white people (or for that matter anyone) complained, would they be issued refunds? If not and they went to the press about it, would they be given the time of day?

    So if it was a bunch of rowdy Red Necks or white college kids and the same thing happened to them, would that be "racist"?

    The only reason why they're backpedaling is because they were BLACK and are playing the racism card and threatening lawsuits.

    NEVER APOLOGIZE for doing the right thing. In our court system an apology = guilt.

    Culture clash, plain and simple.

    The women came to have a good time, and didn't, because they chose the wrong venue. Had they acted exactly the same way on Beale Street while hitting the blues clubs, nobody would've thought twice.

    In an environment where everyone is sooooo worried about appearances, such as the entire damn state of Komifornia, that degree of total disregard for what others think will not be tolerated.

    The apology sounds more like a business decision. And a smart one at that.

    I got kicked off for a rather boisterous case of the runs in their bathroom. I guess the conductor kept asking "What the bleep is that sound????"

    Brie doesn't agree with me.

    The most important question had not been asked yet. Were these black chicks hot? Guilty or innocence is based upon their degree of hotness.

    Apparently, not allowing loud and rude behavior is racist.

    The only issue here is whether they were asked to leave because they were black, or because they were loud. If the former, then expect a law suit. If the latter, tough nubbies. Expect a lawsuit anyway.

    "OMG!! We've been accused of racial discrimination for expecting black folks to live up to the same standards expected of white folks, in public, better apologize quick."

    I assume it is also racist to want the black females at the theater to quit yelling everything they think at the screen.

    The reason why I won't go see movies any more. I was actually planning to bring some pepper spay a year or so back, then realized that it just wasn't worth it. Glad my anger management classes are working...
