Just a few racist comments

Very recently I received two absurdly racist comments to a post. (A popular post from a google search, ie: not a regular copinthehood reader). My question is this: Why are RACIST COMMENTS TO THIS BLOG ALWAYS WRITTEN WITH THE CAPLOCKS KEY ON!?!?!?

I've been writing this blog for seven years now. And, as Blogger tells me, I have written 2,048 posts and published 6,508 comments. Out of all that, I think these were the first comments I wouldn't publish because they were racist (THOUGH MAYBE I'M FORGETTING ONE OR TWO I'M NOT SURE).

So kudos to all of you who do comment! My sincere thanks for engaging with me and other while keeping things interesting and civilized. Honestly, it's so rare to see that with police issues.

SORRY I THOUGHT THE BLOG WAS CALLED "ALL CAP IN THE HOOD." I WILL TRY TO EXPRESS MY RACISM IN ITALICS IN THE FUTURE. GOD I HATE THE ITALICS.

THE TRIATHLON IS THE WORST RACE. THEN THE WORST RACE IS THE MARATHON. BASICALLY THE MORE I HAVE TO RUN AND EXERCISE, THE WORSE THE RACE IS.

Racists *and* fitness and font freaks. All the same. THE WORST!
