Comment of the Day: Alleged Bass Pro Shops Racism

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about the feds suing Bass Pro Shops for alleged ongoing racism in their hiring, and included the five worst quotes from managers that were used as examples in the suit.

It caused one reader to admit to some prejudice of his own.
