    Town's White Police Official Calls Obama N-Word [W:301]

    Town's White Police Official Calls Obama N-Word - ABC News

    Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland, who's 82 and white, has acknowledged in an email to his fellow police commissioners he used the racial slur in describing Obama.
    Imagine that.

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

    http://www.seattlepi.com/news/us/art...rd-5480252.php

    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."
    WHOA!

    This old dude meets and exceeds my criteria for being a jackass, but since he's 82 years old we probably won't hear many more reports about him.

    Stories like this just make me laugh because of how absurd the racists are. Even so, it's unfortunate that this guy is a Police Commissioner considering that the amount of power he has probably means that a fair amount of black people have been held back from jobs and promotions because of him. There's probably also been a fair amount of racism in police activity in his area due to him as well. That is the saddest part of this.

    That said, the kind of racism demonstrated by stories like this is not the type of racism that concerns me. Such overt racism is mostly a relic of the past and it's literally dying out. What concerns me is the pervasive form of racism in our society that is more covert, or subtle. I'm talking about the type of racism expressed by the vast majority of white Americans where they tell denigrating racist jokes in one breath and then claim to be colorblind in the next.

    White people hate all non-white people. You see it in our eyes, you hear it in the tone we take. We only tolerate you less subhumans because we need people to mow our lawns and do our laundry.

    No, modern racism isn't about hate. That's the point. If you're going to mock something, then at least understand it before you do.

    One of the most ridiculous and unsubstantiated posts I've ever seen on racism.

    A black guy and a white girl meet up on the dancefloor of a nightclub. They dance and dance until things start getting intemate. They get closer and closer and each one of them starts feeling hoter and hoter. At one point both of them just rush out to a cab to take them to her place. When arriving they rush up to her appartment whilest losing their clothes. As they arrive and the black guy is abbout to pull of his pants, she says: "Wait! Is it true what they say about black people?" He smiles and says: "Sure it is Baby"

    Then he pulls out a knife, stabs her 3 times and runs away with her purse.


    That joke was told to me by a black guy, the son of Nigerian imigrants to Germany. Your entire notion of covert racism just reeks of over the top political correctness and moral policing.

    What is the difference between your views on inforcing moral obligations concerning race in language, and Rick Santorum who wants a catholic gestapo watching you having sex?
