    But God forbid a white person says something!
    So, because a black person may use the "N" word, that should make it alright for white people to use it?

    And at least in the United States, why should the word "cracker" be equated to the "N" word? What makes the word "cracker" so offensive, at least in the United States?

    you must be one of those closet case lefties aren't you? And I don't mean american liberals, I mean real lefties.

    Look, nigger = white trash or cracker.

    It is the correct word to use in the case of blacks who live in the ghettos and propagate that type of environment. It would very, very wrong to call Neil Degrasse Tyson a nigger. It would be correct to call Lil'wayne a nigger. Why? because one is a proper individual who values civility and advancement... the other is a lowlife whose message and personal value sinks to bottom of the moral fiber. To put them in the same category, in the same pot as it were... and say that they are the same, is a slap in the face for everything that is supposed to mean progress. They are not equals. They are not the same. One is a nigger. The other is an african-america, or a black man.

    Yeah, cause saying that the "n" word is offensive makes me a "closet case lefty"

    Throughout the history of the United States, what has the white race endured that has been remotely close to what African-Americans throughout the history of the United States have endured?

    When there is a time when the entire white race is forced into slavery, then I'll view the term "white trash" as offensive as the "n" word.

    I don't think so. Which is why I didn't say that.

    Cracker is a derogatory term towards white people. The same as "N" is a derogatory term towards black people. Its hard to miss the equivalency of the intention of the use of the words.

    You obviously know nothing about how the Irish were treated. Or the Chinese. Or currently Mexicans.

    re: Obama and the african american constituency. [W:50]

    Its really simple. Unemployment and economic devastation continues to hit minority communities the hardest. 4 years after this particular democrat took office, its worse not better. There is little reason for them to be excited about going to the polls and voting at ALL. But thats not going to stop this guy...

    “I voted for Barack because he was black. ’Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them. When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a [bleep]. Because, what’s a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. [Bleeps] don’t have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A [bleep] would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the [bleep] said that?’ I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, ’cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.”

    Just because both terms are derogatory doesn't make the two terms equal in how offensive they are.

    Ok. So then you consider that I should use the same word to describe people like Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Lil'wayne? You think that is fair? because I see it as offensive and counter-progressive. If you want people to want to move to the correct direction, you must use the correct words. You cannot call a loser and a successful man the same thing. You just cannot because if you do, you get nowhere.

    Omg, you are just too thick-headed. Get on your imaginary moral horse and stay there.
