While many of us do manage to blurt out something inappropriate time to time, the lucky ones are those who bounce back to their former stance of respectability. Duck Dynasty head honcho, Phil Robertson put his foot in his mouth when he denigrated gays and lesbians in a GQ interview. He furthermore said that black Americans were happier before the civil rights era.
There was a publicuproar at these faux pas comments. But the support for him afterwards by Christian groups was so great that the channel was forced to reinstate him. Now the man who spoke so much mumbo jumbo is beingsupported by an unexpected audience. Black church-going members in the southern United States are totally in favor of Phil and his show.

These surprisingly included many blacks living in Dixieland.

However, some of them did say that blacks didn’t enjoy the abuse heaped on them by their taskmasters before the civil rights era. Meanwhile, a black hunter too spoke out in support of Phil. He said that the older generation had their own opinions and you cannot judge them by today’s ultra-liberal criteria. Phil’s next initiative is to encourage the practice of praying in schools.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
