if they want to call themselves that, they can go ahead and do it, but there's no way they can expect others to follow suit. especially not others who may or may not be fired if they go about it the wrong way.

Color me shocked. I've heard the nickname for awhile but shocked to hear in this pc ravaged wasteland that it would take off..

It sucks. It doesn't give any props to Thomas at all. Black and Decker sound to me more like "some black guy and ERIC DECKER !!!!! Yay....ERIC DECKER". How many people would love it if it where "white and Thomas". I think it's pretty stupid myself that every friggin thing these days has to have a nickname. What is so damn wrong with Thomas and Decker, it's only their names I know, lord almighty, lol.

How about Pryor and Wilder.

Also, what does this make Stokely? Sunbeam?

I think it's ****ing awesome. Thomas doesn't need anyone's pity. He's black and he's proud of it. Nothing wrong with that.

I liked it better as Salt and Pepper. That's what they were calling themselves early in the season. Black and Decker is kinda cool too though.

I don't know why anyone would want to be nicked named after such nappy tools. They were the **** about 30 years ago but you might as well call yourself the "Stanleys'"

I second hambone's critique. The racial undertones run a very distant second to the fact that B&D make ****ty tools.

It does however make sense that the white guy's name is retained in that sense though, since only white trash trailer park meth heads would use B&Ds nowadays. I bet Wolfe gave 'em the name and talked about how bad ass his corded 12v B&D drill is and how it even has a cool snap in slot for the chuck key.

I'd like Decker a lot more if he didn't seem to be good for one dumb ass play a game.
