Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

We've discussed many weighty subjects on Show and Tell over the past year, but the all-time comment-getter remains Jeff Otte's "White people with dreads." Just yesterday, Bongzilla weighed in with this:

I'm sorry, but every comment I've read on here has been EXTREMELY racist.. All you're doing is finger pointing at each other and calling each other racists with more racist generalizations. Who fucking cares. I thought "hippies" were supposed to be these peace loving pixies that float around the country with fucking flowers in their hair.. You're all ignorant. Don't be so god damn sensitive... You sound like children bickering about who gets the last juice box.

A new year's resolution for 2012: Let's cut the talk about dreadlocks!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
