UPDATE: Texas County Official Sees Race in Term ‘Black Hole’

Remember Dallas County (Texas) Commissioner, Commissioner John Wiley Price, who thought the scientific term “black hole” was “racist?  Fox News is reporting Price also thinks the terms “angel food cake” and “devils food cake” are racist also.  Why?  Angel food cake is white, devils food cake is black.  He also thinks the term “black sheep” is racist.  Next thing you know, he’ll be after Crayola for putting the black crayon on the back row of the box.

Who’s the racist?  It seems Price is a bit wrapped up in it.  Anyone who sees racism in the names of cakes has serious issues….  (source – Fox News)

  2. There was some talk about blackhole being a science term…. but it should be explicitly said that it has nothing to do with people.. it is about light. Here is the history on the other terms. All having nothing todo with people’s skin color.

    Regarding black hole – named in reference to the fact that light cannot escape their intense gravity. Eg. no light… as in blackness… which is the absence of light. – (ref: any science book)

    Regarding Devil’s Food Cake – … “during the years following the introduction of this cake, those who made the cake typically used red food coloring to create a deeper reddish color for the traditional cake, and thus the name in reference to the Devil” ref: various food history resources

    Regarding blacksheep – The term originated from the occasional black sheep which are born into a herd of white sheep due to a genetic process of recessive traits. Black sheep were considered commercially undesirable because their wool cannot be dyed as white wool can.[1] In 18th and 19th century England, the black color of the sheep was seen as the mark of the devil – ref: Wikipedia

  3. I cannot believe that there is no follow up to this story. Where is Jesse Jackson when we need him the most, what you say Jesse can only put one foot in his mouth at a time, I don’t believe it. I hope someone who is African-American, has taken this idiot Texan off to the side and explained how RACIST he sounds!
