    People are racist.

    Individuals are racist.

    Our society is not racist.

    Nothing but society will change my opinion on that matter.
    You are white, oops I am sorry, "You are right" . . . only individuals are racist. You are right, the average black man is the same as an average white guy. No really . . . they are exactly the same. And . . . since you taught me I have been a victim of racism . . . I guess they must experience it too. But it is the same none-the-less.

    I got to tell ya . . . I am feeling really oppressed right now.

    I guess.

    Personally, I'd have preferred fried chicken over Ritz & cheese, and I'm a white guy. I've never been a big fan of watermelon, though it's not spit-it-out-bad, either.

    But really, it's fricken crackers & cheese. It probably has more to do with being cheap, not being white.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Where do you live? I'm not denying your experience, it's just that the only time I've heard that word used in anything other than legitimate discussions about racism or the movies has been from the mouths of urban black youths (at least in the last couple decades).

    But then I've lived in the Western states during that time.

    I hear "nigger" everyday, too. When I'm flipping through the radio stations or tv channels, I consistently hear it strictly in the entertainment created by blacks. Certain folks have established their true nature.

    Seriously. While I have no doubt there are legitimate issues that need to be resolved overall, this particular gripe comes off as just griping for gripe's sake. It sounds like the people who hosted are damned if they do, damned if they don't.
    Why do so many people not realize that he was making a JOKE? For goodness sake people, get a grip. It wasn't a serious gripe. It was a joke.

    Yes . . . that is exactly the same thing. Honestly . . . all I can think is . . . really? Do you think black people invented the word, "Nigger". Or it was invented around the time Hip Hop came into existence? You see . . . that word in itself proves how generations are being effected by that little blot on America's resume. You have to feel bad about how bad white people got it now-a-days to even bring this up.

    Huh? No one seriously thinks the word was just coined, but it was on it's way out of the lexicon. The word had gained a rep of being so nasty and hateful anyone who uttered it was looked upon with disdain. UNTIL some maroon thought co-opting the word would "empower" black folks.

    Since then the word came back into the language with a "legitimate" use. Sad really.

    Maybe the rest of society has been conditioned to be over-sensitive in it's own right.

    Ever hear the story about the boy who cried wolf?

    Realistically, has any negative word in history successfully made it out of the lexicon? Why should it? It's just a word, intent matters more.
