Not saying I want anyone to say racist things about anyone, but seriously. White people will stop saying racist things when it pleases them so complaining about it is a waste of time.

I say let them get it out of their system...for however many more centuries it will take. lol
Why are you arguing in the alternative? Stop it with the lawyer rhetoric. That's not what this thread is here for.

Either you call out the actions in this video for what they are or go ahead and formulate a definitive statement on why you believe otherwise. This topic has nothing to do with what blacks say about whites or anything else. The quicker people uderstand that, the better off everyoone will be.

What thoughts go along with the word "whiteboy"? If you're Caucasian, you're a whiteboy. What's the problem?

I know some white people that are offended when they are called "cracker" but most aren't offended by it. I guess most white people are just pissed because they can't cry "Racism!" or complain about being called a derogatory name as easily as minorities because there really isn't one for white people, whereas blacks have "nigg*r, coon, etc.", hispanics have "spick, wetback", and asians have "gook, chiink, etc"

That's a great video. If I were the father, I'd throw a bucket of blue paint onto the car and tell her that's the only car she'll have till finds the money to buy her own.

I'm just responding to the comment that Whiteboy and ****** are different even though I'm sure both sides feel the exact same way about the person they are saying it to.

Not arguing which one is technically worse, I'm just saying that it shouldn't matter which word is worse. What should matter is what the person who is saying it is trying to get across.

For all sides there's a difference between a drunken brat saying a racist word compared to a man dressed up in stiched pillow cases or someone who has Malcom X posters everywhere in their room.

So I guess that answers the original question as well. Yes it was wrong, but I''m not gonna lose sleep over an INDIVIDUAL who said something they'll probably not even remember saying the next day.

Speaking of cop outs. I guess you never asked a white person if they get offended....but you expect white people to care....

No white guys I know would be offended by "whiteboy", but then again I can't speak for people in other regions of the country.. but if you're an urban white kid and are offended by "whiteboy", I don't know what to tell ya.. stay home

First of all...by definition, blacks in this country cannot be racists. The word racist is defined as a person/group that unwarrantly inflicts viles of hate or discrimination on a group of people based on race. Now tell me what have whites been through with any goup of people that would warrant a claim of racism? Think hard cause it's nothing there.

And on that note, this is where I'm afraid RedBlackAttack doesn't know he, as a white person, have alote more in common with Paris and her WASP entourage. As a white person, you are automatically allotted different and comparatively unique opportunities compared to minorities. From family upbringing to family wealth, whites are in a position of power starting at birth in this country. And only their sublime ignorance doesn't allow them to see it for what it is. But then again, I guess I shouldn't expect you to know any better if you don't know any better, feel me?

"Whiteboy" can definitely be looked upon as a putdown the same way some Chinese are offended by the word "Chinaman". One would think if you're Chinese and male, you shouldn't be offended by the term, but that's not the case.

Really, it seemed to just document the lives of many 20-somethings that grew up rich. It is in their words. I think it is unfair for you to judge it as 'biased' until you have seen it. It is certainly worth checking out.

Might as well not let this go.

If you want to go black/white look at Africa where many white farming families have been killed over the years just to get them out. These aren't your elitist whites who try and exploit Africans either.

But I guess Africans and blacks aren't the same....
