5.) Bob Thorpe's Thoughts on "Blacks"
If you're an elected official, or even if you're not an elected official, it's probably not a good idea to complain about "blacks" on social media, where everyone can see it. That memo didn't reach Republican Representative Bob Thorpe in time, as he tweeted about his outrage that black teenagers -- "blacks" -- beat up a white boy in Florida. He also suggested that Attorney General Eric Holder is soft on crime because many of his fellow blacks are in prison. Thorpe's response was to make his Twitter account private.
