    Prime example of "white privilege" on display. You can tell me about me, but I dare not tell you about you.

    White man's education? I would imagine that many black doctors and physicists would laugh at the thought. Now you have your own "edu-ma-cation". The arrogance is galling.
    I quit. I'm not going to mix it up any further with you, and incur an infraction.
    Ignore.

    If you are at a comedy club and the context of you being there is to be entertained and to told humorous things, then you KNOW that what you are hearing is being told in jest. Takes the bite right out of the racist aspect of the comment. Context.

    Here's a specific example:

    1) Comedian at a comedy club: "Ah... Jews... gotta love those money-grubbing bastards".

    2) Politician discussing his constituency: "Ah... Jews... gotta love those money-grubbing bastards".

    3) CaptainCourtesy demonstrating the difference of contexts at Debate Poltiics: "Ah... Jews... gotta love those money-grubbing bastards".

    Do you see the difference in contexts?
    I generally agree with you, but that didn't work so well for Michael Richards.

    Second, so are you suggesting that if someone does something...REGARDLESS OF THE CONTEXT...then they should never be upset if anyone else does the same thing, regardless of the context?
    Is that what you're really saying?
    Correct. Its like people who use the word nigger,nigga or some other form of the word or those who tolerate other people using that word and then bitch when someone else uses it. Those people are hypocrites and have no room to complain about others doing the same thing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Seems the black community have a crime problem and I can't really be surprised that people have trust issues when they see black males.

    I don't use the word, and I don't condone the use of the word.

    I also wouldn't go up to a random girl on the street and ask her "Do you have a any italian in you" and when she says no ask her "Do you want some"

    Does it mean those things are racist because I wouldn't go up to a random person on the street and say them? No, it means that jokes whose humor comes from being offensive are generally ACTUALLY offensive to a bad degree when made without any context, to complete strangers.

    Hanging black people, in a general sense sans context, is not funny.

    A pile of dead babies, in a general sense sans context, is not funny.

    Propositioning a woman for sex, without any prior interaction, is generally not funny.

    That doesn't mean that given a proper situations and context that they couldn't be funny.
    Correct. Its like people who use the word nigger,nigga or some other form of the word or those who tolerate other people using that word and then bitch when someone else uses it. Those people are hypocrites and have no room to complain about others doing the same thing.
    So if you've ever, in the vicinity of friends or as a joke, made lewd and completely crude comments or insinuation about a women then you should never be upset if someone comes up to your girlfriend/wife and goes "WOW, I'd love to **** you right now. Drop this guy and let me tear that ass up".

    Cause you know, if you've ever done it in any context anywhere then its okay and you can't be mad about someone doing it in any context, anywhere.

    So if you've ever punched a guy, no matter the context, you can never be upset if someone comes up and slugs you because as long as you've done something once, regardless of context, you can't be mad if someone else does it.

    So if you've ever joked going something like "Gah, I'm an idiot" because you forgot something then its perfectly okay for anyone, at any time, to come up to you and tell you you're a ****ing idiot because you've said it once about yourself.

    It goes on and on.

    Somehow, I imagine you don't hold yourself and your world to the same standards that you hold race.

    I hate rap music, being a musician myself. So, no, I don't listen to it, if I can help it.
    Black movies? That feature, exclusively, use of the n-word??? I would avoid it like the plague. And I don't read Boondocks.
    I am elitist, sophisticated, and intellectual. In other words, "uppity".

    I find it odd that you obviously do, identifying as very conservative. Somehow, there is a disconnect somewhere. Care to explain?

    I know the joke is racist regardless of context and would only tell my friends and family that joke regardless of their race.

    I fail to see how trying t0 pick up another guy's chick right in front of that guy somehow the same thing as racism.
