    I feel no guilt whatsoever. I have never enslaved a single person.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    I see what you're saying, but considering what I've experienced in my life, I can't let you define me. I'm not trying to be a martyr or anything, but I don't see why the "get over it" and "stop being a victim" logic is valid in any way.

    That's silly. 1865 is just a number. Just because they became freedmen in 1865 doesn't mean that things automatically became sunshine and roses for them. Ever hear of something called the civil rights movement?

    Unfortunately, something that a lot of people don't understand is that simply having dark skin in our society automatically makes you a victim of racism. That's just how it is right now. So, it's sort of ridiculous that people want to dictate what Jamie Foxx should or should not be offended by.
    And when did you ever experience sexism? No doubt you would be grossly offended by the living I make for myself because likely it greatly exceeds your own. I broke your glass ceiling.

    LOL. Well we have a lot of blacks in this country who immigrated from Africa post civil war. They use the 'it's my skin color' cop out just like the rest.

    I find it interesting that Asians and Hispanics do not. They work their brown little asses off.

    People are disrespectful of others everyday for numerous reasons. It just seems like some blacks equate everything with race, when it might be because of nothing to do with the color of the person's skin.

    Exactly, it would be even worse if I experienced sexism.

    Now see, that's a generalization, and racist.

    It is still politically correct to be disrespectful of hillbillies, rednecks, and southerners.
