That depends, buddy. how do they feel when the well paid black comedians use the "N" word all the time?
Of course, that's OK. You got a firefighter in Milwaukee area used it accidentally and they are raising the roof. He happens to be President of the StaTe Association, too. Just a slip, and he apologized but that's not enough for the Jackson/sharpton types. They want him to resign.
OK to say Honky, though.
Looks like white guilt is still around. Keep it for yourself, I don't have any. I shot registered skeet with a couple nice gentlemen from your area who happened to be black. Had a great time. Clarence Pike was one, forgot the other name.
How about the word Redneck? do you feel insulted by that one?
This crap can go on forever. I happen to be of German descent. You can call me Kraut any time.
Well another example, Donavan McNabb world class (so they report) never knew as of last sunday that a football game could end in a tie. For those of you who don't know McNabb, he is afro american Eagles quarterback.
If the author of the thread is angling for some kind of right-wing Pulitzer Prize with this post, he better open his freakin' eyes.
In case you've been asleep the past month, the political party that attempted to institutionalize color-blindness in government affairs, was the one that got shellacked back to the Stone Age in this election. You want dead? That's dead.
The race industry is not dead...it simply has a new CEO with better credentials.
I posted essentially the following at another thread; mainly meant to post it here:
Why feel any guilt over having prejudices and maybe some residual guilt? I am sure I am racist and likely sexist if bias alone makes one racist and/or sexist. Therefore, I feel as a growing individual, I feel an obligation to be aware of my prejudices and treat every individual I meet with fairness and without bias.
We may not be able to entirely change our viewpoints, but we can change our behaviors as part of our human responsibilities. Changing one's behavior can slowly lead to one's changing his or her viewpoints. I mentioned this viewpoint of mine to friends who are from minority groups; they don't see this viewpoint of mine as "racist", but as one having many naturally conditioned biasies as do they.
One of the greatest things that ever happened to our society is when MLB, NFL & NBA hired black head coaches and then fired them for their lack of results! That legitimized parity in those ranks. The hirings and firings were based on results and not the color of their skin.
The only people making issues of the first black coach, first black coach to win the Superbowl etc is the media. The average fan wants a winner and the color of the skin in this case does not matter!
That wasn't the point. When there was a post about "why aren't there more black trapshooters," people here were falling all over themselves to show that if a black person came to their club, they would hug and kiss hime, and make him feel like part of the family.
You can't write stuff like Halfmile does:""Ah's votin fo Obama coz he's gonna put gas in mah tank and pay mah mo'gage" I know it's true cause I saw it on TV." and think that any black person who saw that would just laugh it off. More than likely, we would never see or hear from him again.
Dickgtax: Why did you address the above to me? I did not write any of the stuff which you qouted or comment on it. So what was the point?? If you want to start up with me at least list your name. No name = no point. Fred
