    Get White Boy Drunk: Is That Racist?

    I was watching Bridezillas on TV and this black couple had just gotten married and was asked in interview what you want to do now? The black groom replied get white boy drunk. Do you feel that is racist or not?

    I do not cause he did not seem to say it in hate and there is that whole song about getting white boy crazy. What do you think? One my white friends say it was racist but she said the Bridezilla was lucky he showed up at all.

    Not at all, he was using race as a descriptor, not as an insult.

    What happens if the reverse was true and it was a white couple making a very similar comment about a black person?

    Re: Get White Boy Drunk: Is That Racist?

    Let's put it this way, if a white person said "get black boy drunk", heads would roll. Yes, it's somewhat racist... that color was used as a descriptor at all shows some racial element. Why not use "get ___(persons name)___ drunk"? The statement wasn't as racist as say "get cracker boy drunk" or some other derivative...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    AS long as I can get black boy high, it's OK.

    Re: Get White Boy Drunk: Is That Racist?

    It is not something to get offended over, but could certainly be construed as racist, especially if you consider any form of the comment as applied with wording that suggest that it is something black people would do and it would be negative, is racist.

    "dressed like a black guy"
    "talks black"

    To me, though, it isn't the words themselves that make something racist, but what the intention behind those words are.

    And I have no idea what "White Boy Crazy" is unless someone got hold of some information/footage on one of my brothers. They are all crazy and they are most definitely white.

    Depends...does "Black boy Drunk" imply you are going to get krunk and rock it on the dance floor?

    What is 'white boy drunk' anyway? I mean...I vaguely remember my very much younger days...and if dood is wanting to get this kind of white boy drunk...that marriage wont last a month!

    I think "white boy drunk" means that you get drunk without drinking any 40s or Hennessy.
