    its way past time of all raced based groups be removed from politics. it has become more of a way to keep races divided instead of all be treated as equal.

    It's impossible. it cannot be racist. it is a liberal idea. although was brought about by white man, who does have a superiority complex , and I'm not sure but I think is also gay.

    When will this racecard crap ever stop. Hell the only race that should be able to use the race card today are white,white, and whites.
    Why?

    It's bad for all business, not only businesses with owners of a certain color. The race-card really needs to be removed from the deck.

    Exactly. I am sick of the race card. It's like "we don't like <insert that here>, you hate black people! We're suing!". I understand that alleged racism is a key to their agenda, but use it for some practical. I am not happy about Nanny Bloomberg but we need to find ways to solve the obesity ...
    @RobertJHarsh I agree! One way to solve the obesity problem is not allowing junk food to be bought with foodstamps. The NAACP would likely scream 'racist' if folks were told which food could be bought with the foodstamps you and I pay for. A bag of dried beans and a sack of potatoes would be a good replacement for a bag of chips and a 2-liter.

    What the hell is this? So... Stupid. Why even r write about this? I'm black, in the south and 5'2 and weight 125. So, I'm not fat. I don't give a care. Stop eating so damn much. Get your behind outside and run. They need to shut the front door, on this topic.

    Don't know whether it is racist or not, but it definitely smacks of the NANNY GOVERNMENT that Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Entremanure George Soros, establishment apparatchiks like Senators Feinstein and Bloomberg, and President Obama and Vice-President Obama want to force down our throats whether we are for it or not. Wait till the November 2014 elections!!!

    I can't choose. You need to add another choice for people like me. Maybe, stop the nonsense. I'll choose that. Totally stupid, even better. What a waste of a read.

    Racial issue? The race card is getting a little worn. Another tempest in a tea pot.

    It's not racist, it's discrimination. How can you tell one group the can't while another one can sell big drinks? McD's you can't sell them but 7-11 you can. As someone else said and I've said the same, what keeps a person from buying two? Also if you are at a restaurant, can't you still get refills? So how does this law do anything but discriminate?

    I don't see it. If someone wants a larger serving of that disgusting crap, they'll just buy two. If anything, it might help the businesses. Frankly, they make a killing on those fountain drinks anyway. The Big Gulp costs the retailers pennies.

    Ha Ha. They are learning from Obama. Everything you don't like means you are racist. Anything I say is not racist. Anything you say that I disagree with means you are racist. I reserve the right to decide you are racist at any time, even if you don't say anything. If you look racist, you must be racist. If you are a white man, you clearly must be racist. If you are Republican, for sure you are racist. Did I miss anything? Oh yes, rules to decide you are racist can be added at any time.

    @falco_alba - Heck no. I'm wealthy, myself. Not monetarily. If you count good friends around you, you'll never be lacking priceless assets.
