    There is no double standard. Those in power being racial bigots is FAR more devastating to society than powerless minorities pissing in the wind. To ignore the sociological implications of racism is to reduce the term to a childish perspective and sweep under the rug the real conversation. That would be like ignoring context in an Israel/Hamas discussion and treating the two entities as the same thing.

    I defended him as a soldier, not a Nazi. Considering I was also a 19E, go figure. Please point out where I denied anything about racism for blacks? I said I don't accept it as an excuse for failure white or black.

    You need to accept the fact that you are the one who attacked his name and don't know a regular soldier vs a war criminal Nazi.

    Your lack of understanding is amazing.

    I was not making an attack on you or trying to twist the situation. I was just pointing out the irony of the meta in a thread entitled such.

    Buy completely exaggerating what I said? Not cool man.

    Anyway, no more derailment. Back to the cracker thing...

    Yes it's racism, does not matter what "sociologists" think it means, the dictionary says different. This is however not downplaying institutionalised racism or it's affects. This does not make it anything else or change the meaning of the word.

    "Creepy ass cracker" is an offensive racial comment. It is the same as if Trayvon Martin had been referred to as a "creepy ass" something else. Racial bigotry is not limited to any specific race and it doesn't matter if they are a minority or majority. And as far as who is in power or not, well, if that is the case, the highest office of the land is held by a black man and the highest ranking cop also known as United States Attorney General is a black man too, so if you are judging simply by race, then who is in power again? Anyway, racism happens no matter who is in power. The term I find funny is so-called reverse racism, when someone is a referring to a white person being acted against, when in reality racism is just racism no matter who is doing it.

    I didn't exaggerate. I made it clear that you were defending a historical Nazi on the basis that he was a good tanker. It's still ironic, given thread title/subject. It kinda parallels people claiming that "cracker" is not so bad based on the source of the comment and the target - in a NON-direct and NON-insulting way regarding your contribution. On it's face, the whole situation had become rather comically twisted.

    I meant no insult and I did not mean to distort your posts. I only meant to comment on the bizarre meta and undertones in regard to the topic.

    Try asking some of them.

    They might be able to help you.

    I have no interest in civil war or any other reenactments.

    I agree with your statement except regarding minorities being capable of racism. That, for me, simply drops too much context - to the point of promoting ignorance and false equivalence.

    Of course Conservatives are going to jump out of the woodwork and make it about blacks. Black on white prejudice is the only kind they see.

    Why should black people not be spared from the PC police?

    So you are equally offended by it when Rush says it?

    Sorry, the people who come in droves to defend Rush are the first to go on about prejudice when it's on them. If you think you're persecuted because you're white or Christian or conservative, get real. Man up and take some of that "personal responsibility" you guys love to talk about. If you say things that make you sound like an asshole, people are going to judge that you are an asshole.
