The Wack List: Feb 23 — featuring Fantasia, public housing villains and more

Posted By on Tue, Feb 23, 2010 at 10:05 AM

Five people, places and things we really ain't digging today:

fantasia

• The fact that Charlotte resident and American Idol winner Fantasia has been receiving death threats

Folks in Ballantyne who oppose a proposed public housing development. There's just no way you can't look like a spoiled rich kid when you work against people living a better lifestyle.

• And while we're talking about that particular post on CharlotteObserver.com, I can't help but see the comments under the story — and wow, are they incredibly racist, elitist and hate-filled. Whenever I read such venomous comments — like,  "Living near low income housing drops home values and enables cockroaches of all ethnicities to be even more reliant on government and the rich to take care of them." — written by readers online, it makes me fear for the future of this city and the nation.

Toyota. Hey, I own one, but — in the words of Dave Chappelle — these guys are fucking up.
