    I think this is the ONLY reason why the ones who voted 'yes', think it's racist.

    If someone said "black boy drunk" people would be think 5 shots of some good stuff. Everyone knows crazy white people party hard and "white boy drunk" is another way of saying "drunk as a skunk."

    Do that and if they don't get it, tell them I said they're all a bunch of dumbass jiggaboos and they're too stupid to have a white collar job.

    I would appreciate you not make such racist comments.

    Might let them know the same thing when a black man calls them boy or nigger. Might also want to let them know that maybe its time to ACT like men and stop sweating the bull****. Or...you know...conversely to be just as upset when a black man says 'goddamit white boy' ...or some other commonly used slang.

    Its tiresoeme. The cheese is old and moldy. Y U so mad bro?

    That's not true...at all. There are different racial epithets for each race. Calling a white man nigger is not the same thing as calling a black man nigger. The idea racist words are the same for each race is nonsensical.

    Isn't the intent in those cases to be racist?

    Re: Get White Boy Drunk: Is That Racist?

    Am I the only one in this thread who understands relativity? I see one group of people saying "this is absolutely racist" and another group saying "this is not at all racist, why are you making things up?" You're both wrong. White men calling black men "boy" has a history of racism, some people still use the term in a racist way and some people still perceive the term to be a racist one. Others don't. It's relative. This whole "you're right, you're wrong" is dumb as hell because it depends on the person using it and hearing it.

    Not necessarily. But my point is that "if it's racist one way, it's racist the other way" is a false statement because the same word can have different meanings depending on the race of the person it's being said to.
