    One of the worst examples of political correctness I've ever seen!! WOW

    There are seven colors in a rainbow and 64 in a box of crayons. So why, some people in Atlanta are asking, did the transit authority have to pick yellow?
    "Hotlanta" is living up to its name this winter as Asian-Americans and the city's transit officials debate the decision to rename a train route into the heart of the city's Asian community. It used to be called "Doraville," now it's the "yellow line."
    Activists say the name shows a lack of sensitivity by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), which changed the line's name on Oct. 1. MARTA officials plan to meet on Friday with a group of Asian-Americans to discuss their concerns about the color-coded system.
    Some advocates say the city should spend an as yet undetermined amount of taxpayer money to change the color to ... wait for it ... gold.

    Oh for fuck's sake. Dude, seriously? Seeing as how it's MARTA I would have associated yellow with urine.

    At least they didn't name it the Oriental Express.

    While I agree that this is beyond ridiculous, as an Asian-American, I have to also say that I find this situation f'ing hilarious!

    In other news, the Blue Line to Smurfville and the Red Line to the Reservation will also be renamed.

    This is money, coolest shit I've heard in awhile! Lets just run the lines based off of race and color! F'ing awesome!!!! Then know-one can complain!
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!
