    Therefore, it's a racist remark. The same way that, "coonass", is racist, since it describes a subset of whites, as well.

    In that case I don't think it would be appropriate because the term nigger is already in common usage and tends to refer to all black people. Perhaps you could call them high yellers, per adpst's example.

    So Nigger is no longer a racial slur, got it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I guess so, if it falls out of common usage first and the term is reacquired with another meaning.

    In a broadcast last month, according to the Daily Courier in Prescott, Blair mistakenly complained that the most prominent child in the painting is African-American, saying: "To depict the biggest picture on the building as a Black person, I would have to ask the question: Why?"


    My question is "why not?"




    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    It has been a common term since the early 1900s, at least. It is looked down on now as an epithet (and rightly so), but the term has been around a long time.

    No, you said that all white, poor, rural southern whites are racist.


    As for the high yeller case, what other features does this term encompass?
    Typically mixed raced, but there are several variants.

    I have no problem with culturally bigoted though because I clearly believe that some cultures are better than others. And I think that culture is an inferior one.
    I thought Liberals didn't believe in racial superiority. Or, is it only ok when making one's self superior to whites? You comments would justify Jim Crow laws, because southern blacks are inferior to blacks in other parts of the country. Basically: "Southern blacks are niggers and northern blacks are African-Americans".

    The bottom line is, one can't decry racism and hate other people on the basis that those people are racists, then turn around and engage in racism, just because it's the politically correct thing to do...then scream to high heaven about how you are this all inclusive, all tolerant non-racist wonder person.
