GUEST,Futwick BS: PC Spanish Class- No 'black'! (170* d) RE: BS: PC Spanish Class- No 'black'! 28 May 13

"I admire black Americans who refer to themselves as N******. It rather cocks a snook at the racism from whites which they endured for so long."

Stupidest shit I ever read. The way to deal with white racism is to immerse yourself in it? What should they do next, wear KKK and Nazi t-shirts, attack each other on the streets and yell at each other to go back to Africa?

As a member of a minority race in America that isn't black, we don't call each other derogatory terms that whites have used to label us. I've never heard it and I doubt I ever will. Why blacks have chosen this tack especially when they have proven themselves so ill-equipped to deal with ANY variation of this word when used by those who don't get a pass is utterly beyond me. There is nothing productive about using those hateful terms. It only perpetuates them and if we were going to be so goddamn sensitive about others using those terms then we should stop using them ourselves because it doesn't make sense to perpetuate terms we dislike others using to describe us.

That means we don't call each other that and we don't put those terms in songs where every other word is one of these terms and then blast these songs at 120 dB at 3 o'clock in the fucking morning when people who have jobs are trying to sleep.

And the WORST enemy such people have are white liberals cheering them on for using words they would instantly slap anyone else down for using in their presence. THAT is racism! It's racist when you say it, it's racist when I say it, it's racist when they say it.

Racist terms are used by racists. PERIOD!
