No one needs to educate me to not say spic or wet back, I KNOW IT'S WRONG
No one has to educated me to not say chinc, I KNOW IT'S WRONG
No one has to educate me not to say cracker, howlie, gringo, red neck, honkey, etc, I KNOW IT'S WRONG
No one has to educate me not to say fag, I KNOW IT'S WRONG
No one had to educate me not to say: nigger, nappy headed, uncle tom, congo bunny, spook, etc. I KNOW IT'S WRONG.
No one had to educate me not to say F.O.B I KNOW IT'S WRONG
No one, especially in this day and age has to educate me on not saying racial slurs and racial slang BECAUSE IT IS WRONG and I KNOW IT'S WRONG.
It doesn't matter who says it, who "gets" to say it, who shouldn't say it, who refers to whom as those things within a race or outside of that race... BECAUSE IT IS WRONG.
If I say it, IT'S WRONG
If you say it, IT'S WRONG
So why is it that there is a focus on who needs to be educated on when to say something that WE all know is wrong?
Why is it so hard to not KNOW what is and isn't wrong?
Please don't assume that all black people are upset when other races say it and not when their own say it.
I dare say that What you see in the media, is NOT how it is worldwide. Of course the media isn't going to show the black people who HATE that term and discourage other blacks AS WELL as other races from saying it. To even assume such things is as asinine as me taking my Queues about white people from the likes of M&M and Uncle Cracker or even Jeff Foxworthy. or the movie "Deliverance" for that matter.
I am SICK of people accusing me of that very thing. I don't care who you are, black, white, green, yellow, red, purple, sky blue plaid. Those words....( all derogatory words of a racial nature) are offensive, PERIOD. And for anyone to justify another's use of it, in my book is WRONG.
I think "Racist" is an over used word. There's a world of difference in being an ass and using racial slurs on tv, radio, for ratings, comedy, music etc then there is in being racist. Not everyone who uses racial slurs are racist. I will say everyone who uses them are ignorant.
Imus is a jackass. Is he racist? Who knows? Seriously who amongst us knows? I surely don't. But I do know this:
HE IS A JACKASS! *thanks E.S*
Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are SELF APPOINTED. I didn't elect either one of them to think for me, act for me or speak for me. I'm sick of people feeling obligated to give me their opinion of them. I DO NOT CARE what you think of them. I really do not care. Nor do I feel I need to obligate you with my opinion of them. Other people make my life hell each time they open their mouths. I care when it is assumed they speak for all black people of America just because they appointed themselves to do so.
Do I make myself clear?
Don't make me have to come back here and repeat myself.
