    it might be helpful to remember that in 1986, Ronald Reagan signed a sweeping immigration reform bill into law. It was sold as a crackdown: There would be tighter security at the Mexican border, and employers would face strict penalties for hiring undocumented workers.

    But the bill also made any immigrant who'd entered the country before 1982 eligible for amnesty — a word not usually associated with the father of modern conservatism.
    Okay, enough of this, onto the topic....please.

    You'll see very few media stories where they use the fully spelled racial slur.

    And, that's telling it like it is.

    From the OP;

    Town resident Jane O'Toole, who moved to Wolfeboro four months ago, said she overheard Copeland say the slur at a restaurant in March and wrote to the town manager about it. Copeland, in an email to her, acknowledged using the slur in referring to the president and said he will not apologize.

    "I believe I did use the 'N' word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse," Copeland said in the email to his fellow police commissioners, part of which he forwarded to O'Toole. "For this, I do not apologize he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."
    Since you know what the N word means.

    In Copeland's own words. Notice he didn't say the racial slur in public, but admitted in a email to Janet O'Toole that he did.

The fact that the VAST MAJORITY of white Americans are still racist, not because they are bad people who hate blacks or Asians, but because they were raised in a society filled with racism that they could not help but be conditioned in such a way. This, again, is why so many white Americans - including liberals and progressives - tell racist jokes, minimize racism, deny white privilege, avoid black people, dismiss nonwhite criticism as "politically correct" and so on. Now, there are some white Americans who are working to improve themselves and, indeed, get away from this modern sort of racism, but they are few and far between.
    Y'know, you really should learn to be careful to not make sweeping broad-brush judgments - because when you do so, all too often you're condemning the good with the bad. Anyone who's ever been wrongfully accused should understand the danger of making broad-brush accusations.

    There's no other whites here who have as deep an experience of racism or the journey therefrom as I do. Read that, and understand that I hate racism as much as any white man can. I can't pretend for a moment that I've walked a mile in your moccasins, but I do my level best to understand, to help heal, to keep people from sliding back into that abyss of racism that I was so close to in my youth.

    Now you're right to an extent about the conditioning of people to be racist simply by the way they were raised...but you're not giving credit to the significant majority of whites who are earnestly trying (with varying levels of success) to overcome their conditioning. And here's something else - have you considered the possibility that there are "good racists"? The very phrase sounds perverse, doesn't it? But here's something else I wrote almost four years ago:

    ...my mother is not evil. She’s got a heart of gold. I’ve seen her happily give bushels of food from our garden to blacks who couldn’t afford a trip down to the local Piggly-Wiggly supermarket. She was eager to talk with our almost completely-black clientele at the used clothing store we used to have in a small town eight miles down the road, and more than once gave away merchandise to those in greatest need. She trusts her daily life to the black caregivers that drop by to bathe and clean her. She knows that she is not racist…in her own opinion. By today’s standards she certainly is racist, but by her own standards, she’s not racist at all.

    Was she a bad person? No. She was racist by your standards and mine, but pay attention to that last line - she was trying the best she knew how to be a good person. She's one of the "good racists" I write about, like the men in my family who would risk their lives without a second thought to save a black man...but as soon as that black man was out of earshot, out would come all the n-word jokes and assumptions.

    It takes time, guy. I know you may very well have experiences that would make you want to hate whites - and having seen and done the things that I have, I couldn't blame you. But hopefully, you can take the words I'm giving you to help you to want to hate so much, because that hate will eat away at your gut and affect everything you do in your life. Understand that while there are still so many white Americans that are racist, most white Americans are trying their level best to not be racist. Will we as a whole become "not racist" in this generation? Of course not. But with each generation, we will become less and less racist. It takes more time and patience than you and I will have in our lifetimes, but that time will come. Have faith, and do not hate.

    Imagine that.

    This sounds familiar with old people who haven't evolved into the modern day.

    Come on, it's clear that the real crime here to you is that he's white.

    We are having to speak in code now, which I find a little silly. It would embarrass me to use 'the N word' as much as 'nigger' though, apart from occasions like this, I never use either.

    Also the fuss about what an 82 year old man says in an email is over the top as well. It was a slur against BHO, which doesn't make him a racist, only an angry old man who doesn't like Obama and will insult him the best way he knows how.

    There is no reason for the fuss, unless you are CNN and have a basic inability to find and report on meaningful news. Then you have to systematically hunt for every example of rascist behavior to have something to write about.

    "82 year old man", "single use" and "private conversation" would tell anybody but CNN that the story is not worth reporting. Heck, there are what, 300 million people in this country? I wonder what Louis Farrakhan has said about Jews and Mexicans lately?

    It was obviously a slow news day at CNN, which is really every day over there.
