GUEST,Martin Gibson BS: Racial No-nos (258* d) RE: BS: Racial No-nos 20 Nov 05

I have worked blue collared jobs in the past with black/Afro Americans, some who became friends, and could never understand their own use of the word nigger towards each other and yet the resentment of it if if it came some other race. It either smacks of a double standard or a self-esteem issue.

Us Jews were slaves for a long time, also. You do not hear Jews referring to themselves or each other as kikes in any inter-cultural way.

Azizi, if I said I have white pride, would I be a racist? Am I supposed to feel guilty for that? Do you think Jesse Jackson would think so?

I'm glad you consider bobert's mimicing of blackspeak complimentary. I am not even black and I don't. I find it just a put-on and an act.

Azizi, I do respect you. But do you have to be so obsessed with your own blackness that you would have to write and start a thread like this? Should we all write and start threads on what offends us?
