Most people are racist to an extent. Just takes different circumstances to bring it out of them. Btw I am glad that racist jerk got caught. He is such a bioch anyway as well as his fat wife.

Yes you really do have to think twice about everything you say or even type these days.

Everyone interprets words differently.

When I was young a long time ago, Brazil Nuts used to be called N****Toes. I still catch myself slipping sometimes.

Just wait till we all have RIFD'* implanted under our skin. Nothing will go unrecorded.

Being black I've grown up hearing all kinds of slurs. I realized it'* more fun (for me) to help the person out with newer ones and ask if that'* the best they can do or tell them to be creative and stop using the same old slurs.

That always takes the thunder out of them since I'm not angry and ready to fight as they thought I would be.

I've never really understood why people get so bent out of shape about some words. In my short life of 31 years, I've called N so much it doesn't even phase me when I hear it.

Granted it'* not a word I care to hear because of all the drama it (and other words) stirs up.

I've been listening to a lot of discussion about the call and here is my 2 cents.....

Everyone has jokes/comments for one audience and won't say them for a differ audience.
Everyone has various levels of tolerance, and gets offended at different things/times.
A lot of people feel the world should respect them, but they won't give others the same respect.


I feel people need to be like diseases, diseases don't care about a person'* color, money, intelligence, age, religion, or political view.

My time in the military showed me a lot about people. When the stuff is about to hit the fan no one has differences, they just want to get through and make it to see another day and their loved ones.

It'* a damn shame people can only be people when tragedy is somehow involved.

I am not a racist person. I will laugh at a racist joke or two. But I don't consider myself racist. I don't think that he did anything wrong. It was a private phone call between he and his son. Its an invasion of privacy broadcasting this to the whole western world. I think that it is nobodys business but him and his sons. It isn't A&E'* business or CNN'*.

A&E'* actions are to cover themselves period. They know that tv is all about image and perception, and they want to still appear appealing to advertisers and viewers.

As far as that being a private conversation...I've read it was the son that made it public. I'm not saying that makes it right, but when you are of celebrity status you are automatically opened up for examination and criticism of everything you do,say, or get involved in.

It'* not like this is the first time a family member has screwed someone, so I don't really see why people are shocked how this call became public.
