    LOL - Okay, now I've seen it all.

    When it comes to "progressive" fruitcakery it's hard to beat GW. These are the same young indoctrinated proles that the socialist and Islamist riff-raff in the ANSWER Coalition recruits to pad the attendance at their rallies in DC so they can claim half the planet was in attendance. I don't know how many of them were hardcore members of the Neo-Jacobin Vanguard, but college students being what they are I suspect that many of them were just out there to try and look cool and hit on each other. :lol:

    Naw it was way back, all the characters wore a white make up, everything was white or black or shades in between, I'm guessing Spielberg early movie class movie.

    Unbelievable these kids have nothing better to do than cry about a white-crossing light. Simply surreal!! Shouldn't they be studying their chemistry, math, engineering instead?

    Looks like Higher Learning is a rotting corpse.

    They really need to start demanding IQ tests before they let these idiots into college. What a waste of time, money and space.

    I was joking as Schindler's list was black & white.

    I believe the movie you are thinking about was The Giver (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435651/). Phillip Noyce was the director.

    Or maybe Pleasantville (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120789/). Director Gary ross

    All we have here are a bunch of indoctrinated young "progressive" drones who see race (and oppression) in everything.

    The older ones who inculcated this psychotic obsession into their impressionable little minds must be real proud of themselves. Nice work. Mission accomplished...:applause:

    As a colorblind person I think they should not use color as it oppresses me and discriminates against me.

    This is what happens when you have wealthy parents and too much time on your hands.

    All this race garbage, so intensified to the max since Trump took office, is going to help the Dems in the elections next year big time.

    So then it would remain as a stick figure, so then expending tax money to change these lights would be wasted.

    Sounds logical to me.

    Probably not.

    Ask Mary Landrieu and Hillary Clinton how the Democrats' race garbage helped them into the unemployment line big time.

    Yes all this race baiting by the Dems/left/MSM but IMO people are getting burnt out on the phony claims.

    The demagoguing of the GOP has generally failed.

    The American voters know that Trump et al is trying to divide America (for Putin?) but is generally failing.

    I remember the days when progressives were supposed to be the intellectuals, and conservatives were just the knuckle dragging primates.

    CNN suggested that white robots may have something to do with racism, so...

    I'd counter by asking if they'd ever seen the movie 'I Robot'.

    The origin of the white walking man stems from a decades old purpose to avoid confusing automobile drivers. The determination was that using the same color for two different signals both of which could be in a drivers field of view at the same time would be dangerous. This is from the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices year 1939 edition:

    Trolling truly is an art form. And its exquisiteness is found in its subtlety.

    That may be the origin, but as I’ve shown, most other countries use green or blue.

    I don’t care either way. It just seems more logical to me to use green/red rather than white/red. But as I say I don’t really care.
