      A racist post made on Facebook by a lady called Pamela Ramsey who runs a local non-profit group in Clay County has seen her refer to Michelle Obama as being 'an ape in heels'.

      Now as much as many don't like Barack Obama or his wife I feel posts like this are just wrong and really do give the wrong impression to younger people who may see it.

      What are your thoughts?

      Whether you are prejudice or not, or whether you like the Obama's or not, such language can only be regarded as inflammatory and unacceptable on a public publishing medium.

      I understand the woman in question lost her job and rightfully so. Whether she has an opinion or not she should keep it to herself or voice it out of the public eye and even then there is no guarantee it wouldn't cause an uproar.
