if you get a border agent on a power trip they will denie you for no reason. About 8 or 9 years ago my roommate, his girl and myself took a drive up to Canada for a weekend trip. We drove 10-12 hours from staten island straight. We goto the border and they first went through the car throughy. They removed all the panels under the hood in the car. They then told us some pebbles that were under the mat in the back seat were pot seeds. After checking them out they agreed they were wrong. We were then seperated and questioned for about an hour. Then they told us to leave and they were not letting us in the country. So we drove another 10-12 hours back home.

Wow, I don't live very far from Kamloops and I never even heard about it. Probably a good thing because I would have been one of the people lined up at 5:00 am.

Neither is Tiger Woods or Obama, not entirely at least. Doesn't stop us from treating them like they're black.

yes he is... he's not african, but his skin is black. I don't think most racists are concerned about cultural heritage as much as they are about outward appearances.

Both Obama and woods are part African and as for that comment Obama just became president and Woods is the highest payed athlete alive so where they are being brought down by the man I have a hard time seeing.

I actually live in a very "REDNECK" area and have heard ppl watching Anderson fight say things like "No I like him hes not black hes brazilian." I'm sure there are many examples to back your point also .

But to everyone I was making a joke on his the man joke.
