    a white man calling a black man "boy", is grounds for charges of racism.

    its that simple. any denial of this is dishonesty and total bull****.

    Agreed. I don't think the couple intended it to be racist, but if they were white and said the same thing about a "black boy drunk", intentions or not, they would have been hammered for it. If it is racist one way, then it is racist the other way too.

    While I agree with you, in this PC world and as noted above, if a white couple had said it with no intention of being racist, they would have been hammered for it. Not right, but that is the way it is. If it is racist one way, then it is racist the other way too.

    Considering the state in many black communities across the country, maybe its time people were a little less concerned about a white man calling a black man a 'boy' and more concerned about a black man calling another black man 'brother'. Just sayin...since you really seem to give a **** and all...

    I would hate to work in that **** hole job. Sounds to me like you could get fired for looking crossed eyed at someone.

    so you think a employer should tolerate racist statements?

    black men should simply tolerate being called "boy" by white people?

    wow.

    Racist comments? Of course not. Referring to a black man as boy isn't neccessarily racist.

    If you have a mail clerk that is in his early 20's, then yes, he's a boy and there's no racism.

    black men should simply tolerate being called "boy" by white people?
    Black men don't have to worry about it. Black boys are usually the idiots that are offended by it.

    wow.
    Why do you insist upon giving power to words to cause harm? Do you have some sort of fetish with creating a bunch of taboo phrases and words? Is your life that boring that you need to create a reason for people to respond to nonsense? If a group of people have collectively decided that "boy" isn't a racist dig for them why would you keep insisting that it be viewed that way? I used to work with a black man who, when I'd make a silly comment, would say, "Girl, you be trippin'." My response was always, "Boy, you just don't recognize the freshness". He damned well knew that "boy" was not a means of challenging him as inferior because of the color of his skin. But had you been there you'd have been screaming in his ear that I'm a racist hate-monger and why isn't he mad as hell at me for being such an ignorant racist.

    In other words, why don't you stop speaking for people and creating racism for no other reason than you want it to be there? If the only two black contributors to this thread say they aren't bothered by the term then why are you, as a white man, going to tell them they're wrong?
