My grandmother was half Native American and I don't call people pale face or care if they slap their lips and say "woo woo woo". It takes a little bit more for me to get fed up enough to match the punishment with the crime. Fighting intolerance with more intolerance is dumb.

    One poster called Indians "savage animals" and that I spoke up against but what my family and Paula Deen said are from ignorant opinions, not trying to be pure nasty. If my sister and her moron husband start saying "hang N's", wear hoods or burn crosses, then I'll disassociate myself from them but otherwise no laws are being broken. I hear slurs against races, handicap people, LGBT's and political parties everyday. Don't like it, don't encourage it but don't run from it either.

    No I dont associate with people who use racist slurs and if someone says it in front of me I will call them out on it. History is littered with people like yourself who turn the other way when something immoral is happening.

    The word ''Nigger'' derived from Italian meaning black..

    I have been called a ''honkey''..I would report it but I have no idea what it means..the same as ''blud claart''..Raas claas..

    i cannot take offence..
    Maybe you don't take offense because that word doesn't represent centuries of slavery, murder, rape, and other oppression of people for the sole crime of looking like you do.

    Who's hanging out? I barely talk to my family because they're ding-a-lings.

    But the fact that you think associating with any group of people makes you like them says something about you.

    Most the people who debate here don't agree with each others philosophies and yet hanging around each other doesn't make them alike.

    People associate with people like themselves.

    It's not about the other people. It's about you. In all relationships, we have things that we tolerate and do not tolerate as a matter of the standards we set for ourselves. Some of us do not tolerate passive aggressiveness. Some of us to do not tolerate verbal abuse. Some of us do not tolerate friends/acquaintances/et al. who bully others. Some of us do not tolerate racism. You obviously tolerate the last one.

    I'll say it again fighting intolerance with more intolerance is hypocritical.
    This is nothing more than a platitude.

    People have a right to freedom of expression even when you don't agree or we'd all have to be of a mob mentality.
    Nobody said anything about people not having the right to express themselves. Congratulations on bringing up the ultimate red herring in discussions like this.

    And I bet you've never used a racist slur, ever? You may want to polish that halo.

    That's right I'm not the morality police or the righteous one who calls out everyone. I'm just an average person with flaws who does their best to forgive others for their flaws. Though when it comes to fairness bet I've fought more for it than you.

    I've never used a racial slur outside of having discussions about it like this one. The "everybody does it" thing usually just reveals something about the person invoking it.

    It's called "equal rights", not special rights for any particular group or person. When you learn the difference between the law and your opinion you'll be better equipped to express yourself.

    This is nothing more than a platitude.
    Truth hurts doesn't it?

    Sure you did when you said you don't tolerate someone expressing their racist opinion. You don't even like me for not overly condemning someone who said a racist term. Now that's the height of intolerance.

    Uh Huh. The "I'm better than everyone else" usually says a lot about the person saying it. Pardon me while I fall down laughing.
