    Nobody, except for you, is talking about rights. I'm talking about regular interactions between people.

    Truth hurts doesn't it?
    No, I'm a big advocate of the truth. You're not providing any though. What you said was a platitude. You said, "fighting intolerance with intolerance is hypocritical". Does this mean you admit that you tolerate racism?

    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.
    Please explain to me how not tolerating racism in my own life is the same thing as denying people their rights. I can't wait. LOL

    Well you can't blame them for wanting to maintain their public image.

    And contrary to popular opinion, it's not a big conspiracy to get all conservatives. They are a private business, and they have the right to decide who they broadcast.

    What exactly does Hilary Clinton have to do with any of this? Did she do something with Paula Deen's contract?

    You don't tolerate it from others? How you going to prevent it? With more hatred or are you going to overcome it with love and tolerance?

    Listen to Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr sometime. Never heard them preach about fighting hate with hate. Trust me, I have ways of showing my disdain for racism but its not with stupidity.

    Eh, I don't know that never saying racial slurs outside of the context I gave you makes me "better" than anyone. I've certainly done my fair share of other "bad" things, but saying racial slurs is not one of them. I just stated a fact. Makes sense that you would try insult me for doing something good. Why do you think it's bad to have never said a racial slur outside the context I stated?

    Oh and grip, remember what I said a while ago when you launched in a random personal attack against me in another thread? I said that you always breakdown when you enter discussions on things like race. You're proving my point.

    Dont matter how long ago. In the United States of the Offended, you are guilty and need to be punished for life for saying anything that a african american dont like.
    Dont matter what they call each other everyday, in music, movies, stand up routines, sports. YOU cant do it.
    Throw her on the same pile they started with Jimmy the Greek.

    You seem to not have a good grasp of what "not tolerating" something means in interpersonal relations. Let me give you an example in case you ever decide that you want to not tolerate racism in your life.

    Example One
    John says, "Mexicans are disgusting." I say, "That's a gross statement. Please don't say that **** around me if you want to hang out."

    Example Two
    Shelly says, "I'm sick of all these Jews trying to take my money." Shelly looks at me expecting me to laugh with her. I don't laugh - Shelly understands I think she's a dumb ****.

    Example Three
    Jason, Josh and Jack are sitting around me at a party, making fun of "black culture" and black people in general. I don't hang out with them again.

    *All variations of things that have happened to me in real life.

    That's how a person doesn't tolerate racism and in none of those cases is anybody's rights violated as you seem to think is necessary. Do you get it yet?
