    It's actually just Irish, who were often called "The niggers of Europe" in the 1800's. A black dude was the first person I ever heard say that one.

    I think a 1/2 black 1/2 irish person is calle da McNigger.

    A McNigger with Cheese is if that person lives in Wisconsin or has Gonorreah.



    My buddy is polish and his wife is Mexican and they are having their first child and he says that it sucks that his kid is going to be so stupid that he's gonna swim BACK to Mexico.

    Re: Why calling black people 'niggers' is not racist.

    Ok, I'm gonna chime in here. I'm gonna skip back a few pages because I have been absent from class the past few days.

    First, 1099, Austin DOES rock. I lived there many years. Round Rock too. I lived off of Wm Cannon and North Lamar. Viva la 6th street! That's the coolest part of Texas IMO. But I also love East Texas, The Valley, Corpus, All of the Gulf Coast, Garner State park area.... damn, I'm homesick.

    Yes, Texas is in "the south" and that's a geographical fact that cannot be spun. They have their "southern" roots and confederate sympathies. BUT... Jallman is kinda right in a way. Texas is the Lone Star state. It stands alone. It might have become a state of the union, but even still today, the Native Texans, such as myself, view ourselves as Texan's first, American's/Southerners/Whatever, second.

    Texas IS a free and independant state, subject ONLY to the constitution of the United States. Not the president, not the congress, not any other state or political body. Thus the "Lone Star State" label.

    In regards to racism. I was Texas born and bred. I have seen racism up close and personal. There is no shortage of racism in Texas. From both sides of the spectrum. BUT, it pales in comparison to the racism I have observed, living up here in the north, the past 21 years.

    It's hard to explain. It's a different kind of racism. But it's racism.

    There's definitely racism up north. It's more insideous and it isn't as obvious, but it's there.

    I think that there is racism all over the country still, but it's getting better all the time.

    "Negro", of course, = "black" in spanish (and possibly portuguese; I don't know for sure, although I know the two languages are similar) and was once the accepted term of the day for black people.

    That's why it is racist.
    The history of southerners and "negros" is too ugly.
    Yes, it was Southerners that "invented" the word nigger, but actions speak louder than words. While Northerners typically berated the South for their treatement of blacks, they used red-lining to keep blacks out of white neighborhoods. And guess where the largest Klan organization was located? Mississippi? No. Indiana. Like I said, actions speak louder than words.

    Re: Why calling black people 'niggers' is not racist.

    By my personal observations, racism up north stretches beyond the black/white thing. Hell, here in the city where I live, I have witnessed the Germans berate the Polish, Serbians just act like assholes to everybody, Mexican's are looked upon as "niggers" by just about everybody. Jews keep amongst themselves, and anyone from the south is treated like a Beverly Hillbilly. There are so many sub-cultures here that place themselves above any other culture, it's like a prejudice stew.

    Keep in mind, however, I speak only in the most general of terms. There are cool people every where ya go. (Those are the one's I hang with. I'm prejudice that way. )
