It's impossible discussing race with these damn morons, but I'll address one comment:

Nearly all of commercial America is a white only club. There would be no need to actively exclude minorities because we have a system that does it passively for us.

Good posts on this second page. But my main issue is that he said what he said, so fire his ass and be done with it. But no, it can't be as simple as that. People have to bring up opposite situations involving other races. Why even do that?

It's like whites are unable to conciously except that they are in a position of power based off their skill color alone. So they have to try to bring up examples on how they're "oppressed" in an equal manner as opposing races. The sh*t is too funny to watch. When racists comments are brought up, it appears I hear more "they say it to themselves" or "what's the difference between the N-word and cracker? Chris Rock calls me that all the time."

Yep, pretty much the banks and the flawed concept of "higher learning" do it for them.

Who is Rush Limbaugh? A talk show host.
Why do you dispise him? Because he's a dumbass. All he does is lie and distort and whine about liberals.
Why did Espn hire him? Because he's a big name.

The comments that got Limbaugh fired:

Quote:
Sorry to say this, I don't think he's been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team.

Racial? Yes. Any different from the articles that Scoop Jackson regularly writes? No, not really.

Limbaugh was fired simply because there was more of an uproar against his comments. Has there ever been much of an uproar against Scoop Jackson's comments? Not really. Do you think it's because he's black that no one gives a ****? Maybe. But I don't see a difference between saying "McNabb is overrated because he's black" to "Dirk/Nash is overrated because he's white."

Hell, if I recall, Scoop refuses to acknowledge Dirk as MVP. His reason? Well, apparently not even he knows. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Dirk is white and therefore might be liked more simply because of the color of skin. :)

I don't know what you're talking about but I think you're agreeing with me based on your previous post.

Please explain.

Thats why he was fired. Scoop Jackson covers sports for a living. His articles have been around for years and never garnered the amount of attention Rush comments did. It was a bad hire from the jump because Rush rep isnt something people will put on hold just because he is gonna start commenting on sports. People already have a view on the man from 21 jump street so they are waiting for him to say something stupid...he did, drama developed and espn had to nip it in the bud. When Scoop delivers an article that draws the reactions from people like Rush did? Then maybe you have a point. Espn was dumb for hiring the controversial figure in the first place.

Mean Girls can be applied to this:

"You gotta stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it ok for guys to call you sluts and whores."

The same can be applied here.

On to the real discussion, every time I ask my black friend why it is ok for black people to say it to each other if it is considered a slur.

All he responds with each time is, "It's just different." I ask how and he says "It just is."

One time in my english class, my teacher (who is black) was teaching something about ambiguous words that mean something that isnt the real meaning.

Like dude, *****, etc.

She used the example "n1gger" in front of an all white class with two exceptions, a black kid and an indian.

Another time she was talking about the White rapper show and how Persia brought out a dildo on TV and she said "One time this one chick brought a, OMg i cant even say the word, out and rubbed it in this guy's face."

So it was ok for her to say the word "n1gger" but not dildo (only three females in the class).

Really weird.

Trust me its a difference between little Tommy going home and saying "Daddy my teach said n*gger" and "my teacher said dildo." Sex is a very sensitive subject and everybody wants to believe their kids are innocent in reference to it and thinks this one experience tainted them.

Made me out for a fool because an unintetional " ' " was used in the word your? Hilarious. You're the one who doesnt make sense when you post. Everyone understood the "you'r girlfriend". But I'm lost to what you meant by "That's for the grandson, son".

Care to translate that garbage or is my mom still fondling your manhood?

He called them jiggaboos, nappy headed hos, and said they look like the Toronto Raptors and has done this sort of thing before when he said Serena and Venus Williams look like monkeys and should be in National Geographic.
Quote:
NEW YORK Syndicated talk-radio personality Don Imus apologized Friday for calling members of the Rutgers University women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos" during a segment yesterday in his "Imus in the Morning" show.

Imus and his producer and on-air sidekick, Bernard McGuirk, went on to further attack the black members of the team, calling them "jigaboos and wannabees."

In his apology, Imus called his comments "insensitive and ill-conceived."

"It was completely inappropriate, and we can understand why people were offended," he told listeners at the opening of his broadcast Friday morning.

He further called the comments "thoughtless and stupid" and said, "We're sorry."

The apology came after Imus initially brushed aside criticism, telling The New York Times "not to worry about some idiot saying something meant to be amusing."

Rutgers officials issued this statement: "We agree with Mr. Imus that this was, in his own words, an 'idiot comment.' We are very proud of the success of the Rutgers women's basketball team. Coach Stringer and the Rutgers players are outstanding ambassadors for this great institution."

Shortly after Imus made his comments about the Rutgers team, MSNBC released the following statement: "While simulcast by MSNBC, 'Imus in the Morning' is not a production of the cable network and is produced by WFAN Radio. As Imus makes clear every day, his views are not those of MSNBC. We regret that his remarks were aired on MSNBC and apologize for these offensive comments."

The comments drew immediate outrage from the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), which had called for a boycott of Imus' show until he issued a "sincere and unequivocal apology," referring to him as a "sophomoric host."

"Has he lost his mind?" asked NABJ President Bryan Monroe, vice president and editorial director for Ebony and Jet magazines in Chicago. "Those comments were beyond offensive. Imus needs to be fired. Today."

The veteran talk-jock's remarks came during a discussion that included WFAN show host Sid Rosenberg, McGuirk and show regular Charles McCord about Rutgers' loss to Tennessee, 59-46, Tuesday night in the NCAA Women's Basketball Finals.

Imus: So, I watched the basketball game last night between a little bit of Rutgers and Tennessee, the women's final.

Rosenberg: Yeah, Tennessee won last night seventh championship for [Tennessee coach] Pat Summitt, I-Man. They beat Rutgers by 13 points.

Imus: That's some rough girls from Rutgers. Man, they got tattoos and

McGuirk: Some hard-core hos.

Imus: That's some nappy-headed hos there. I'm gonna tell you that now, man, that's some woo. And the girls from Tennessee, they all look cute, you know, so, like kinda like I don't know.

McGuirk: A Spike Lee thing.

Imus: Yeah.

McGuirk: The Jigaboos vs. the Wannabes that movie that he had.

Imus: Yeah, it was a tough

Charles McCord: Do The Right Thing.

McGuirk: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Imus: I don't know if I'd have wanted to beat Rutgers or not, but they did, right?

Rosenberg: It was a tough watch. The more I look at Rutgers, they look exactly like the Toronto Raptors.

Rosenberg was twice fired from the Imus show, once for racist comments about Serena and Venus Williams, and again for remarks about singer Kylie Minogue, who was battling breast cancer.

"She won't look so pretty when she's bald with one [breast]
," Rosenberg said on air.

Each time, Imus rehired Rosenberg following on-air apologies.

That's sad that in reality people think sex is a sensitive sublect and racism is not.
