the n-word

Hmmmmm.... does linking this story make me a racist? Just curious.

The article contains a word nobody is supposed to use today--- except for members of a certain special, government-certified victim group, who use it all the time. But that's okay, because it's not a racial slur when THEY say it. It's a "term of endearment."

I'm confused. Maybe I'm looking at the issue the wrong way because of my hateful, racist nature... BUT...

Couldn't we take this debate to the next logical step and say that "fuck" is a dirty, profane word--- unless fuckers use it, which changes it from an obscenity to a "gesture of solidarity?"

I'm just askin'...

Yo fucka, what's up? ;)

There are some words that one should not use at all. The N word is one of those. It is violently racist.

"violently racist"

Oh give me a damn break. It's "violent" if a punch is delivered with it. Until that point it's no more violent than me pointing out something to the effect of "you're an oversensitive douche bag", or some such.

You mean "just axin" don't you?

LMAO at BLOGDOG and it's "jus axin"...get it right!
I'm SO tired of this "violently racist" BS that I could just puke.
I could go on for hours and hours about this but for the sake of keeping this short and simple....
IF there were to EVER be a "Causacian scholarship fund" or "Ms. White America"...we'd NEVER hear the end of that shit and the wheels of "justice" would be burning rubber to right the wrong of us not including the members of the black society.
Minority group my ass.
Enough is enough already.

Gimme a break... "violently racist"???... Nigga, please..

Fuck any fucking motherfucking cocksucker that wants to dictate what the fuck I can and cannot say...

Especially any niggers, spics, wops, chinks, krauts, gooks, greasers, hippies, beaners or honkey crackers that want to get all PC on my ass...

I don't give a tin shit what the color of your skin is, that has no bearing on if you are an asshole or not, and that is the main thing I will judge you on...

Respect is earned, not given.

You know, I don't get too bothered with the name calling. My pops calls all us daughters of his "rice burners." Cracks my ass up. One of my sisters calls us all "twinkies." Yellow on the outside and white on the inside. But if some motherfucker got up in my face and was screaming some shit and called me a chink or gook, I'd lay that fucker out. Because of the TENOR. I'd do the same if that person called me a bitch or cunt or whatever. If you wanna get up in my face and start a fight, I'll oblige you. But not for the name-calling. For the aggression and probably cuz you're stupid. I had a commenter call me chink and gook and call my kids half-breeds. That shit don't fly. Again, cuz of what is IMPLIED directly AT ME. If someone says it casually, like in that comment above mine, it just doesn't bother me one bit.

That kid said he heard it around him. He didn't say that he was called a nigger directly. How sensitive do you have to be if no one calls you a name but you're offended by the use of the word in general?

You people need some sensitivity training.

When blacks stop calling me whitey, cracker, homey, redneck then I may stop calling them nigger. And you do know that black is different than nigger?

Hey, do any of ya'll watch Carlos Mencia? He took this question out on the street and it was FUNNY!! If you don't you should...he's all about stuff EXACTLY like this.

Sensitivity training? Have you heard a hardcore rap song lately Kevin?

Posted by: Sandy on June 8, 2006 09:44 AM

If the price for being born a white, heterosexual,male is not being able to use the N-word, the Q-word or the C-word, well that's a price I'm happy to pay. That doesn't make me racist, homophobic or sexist. That makes me a realist, living in a far from perfect world.

"You people need some sensitivity training."

Clearly your mangina has a ph imbalance. You need to RepHresh.
