    This topic reminds me of what my gf's dad (who is jewish) said after the whole Spitzer scandal came to light.


    "4,000 for that shika??!! What kind a Jew is he? She is at best $1,200"

    That would be shiksa.

    shikse
    A non-Jewish woman, all too often used derogatorily. It has the connotation of “young and beautiful,” so referring to a man’s Gentile wife or girlfriend as a shiksa implies that his primary attraction was her good looks. She is possibly blonde. A shagetz or sheygets means a non-Jewish boy, and has the connotation of a someone who is unruly, even violent.

    What do you think of the phrase?

    In an era when OJ can go free because of a LAPD cop was racist, we gotta be careful.

    Now morally is it wrong? People are judged by the words they use (whether such judgment is justified or not); even if it is not derogatory, why use uncouth/crude language when you could use numerous other synonyms?

    Yes, I did. I saw this:

    I mean "red neck" "chink" "wet back" etc for the other races are just laughable.
    If my interpretation was incorrect, I apologize. Sincerely.

    But, on its face, your comment is hard to interpret any other way: you are saying that the indignation felt by other races when confronted by racial slurs is "laughable" in comparison to your (warranted) indignation when confronted by the word "nigger."

    Why would your insult be any more painful than a similar insult would be to another unfairly maligned minority?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess it's because he's black. For him, it's personal.

    And it's not a personal insult when someone of Asian extraction is called "chink?"

    Really?

    I can't speak for anyone else, but personally I enjoy being called a honky. It makes me feel all fuzzy inside.

    What I am saying is that because it's personal to him, it has more sting. That was his initial remark. It makes sense to me. If he was Native American the Nation's capital football team name may have more sting. Everyone's perception is different. He didn't say that other groups' offensive terms weren't as valid.
