I was thinking in terms of autocorrecting a typo

Does autocorrect have "negrohood" as an option? I didn't know that was a word.

It's a perfectly cromulent word.

Pinner: Kibbler: GilRuiz1: I see he's a Democrat, so racism is impossible.

Democrats can be and too frequently are racist, no doubt about that.

But there's one party that makes racism a central plank, blows dogwhistles night and day, and makes clumsy attempts to camoflauge that by shrieking hysterically whenever a member of the other party makes a stupid ugly racist remark. There is one party viewed by white supremacists as "you're not going nearly far enough, you're wimping out," instead of "you are the exact opposite of my vision of Real 'Murica."

Can you guess which party that is?

The party at your house?


No, nobody showed. Fifteen gallons of onion dip down the drain.

In an emailed reply, Akselrod ignored our request for an interview, but offered an apology that read in part, "As the candidate, I take full responsibility for this inadvertent error and I am sorry to anyone who was offended by it."

The candidate went on to say,

"For the record, to accuse me or my campaign of intentionally using racially inflammatory language is an insult. As a person who faced the scourge of discrimination for being born Jewish in the Soviet Union, I reject any form of racial and ethnic bias."


Error? No, there is NO WAY that you accidentally type "negrohood" instead of neighborhood, and since it isn't even close to word, there's no way that your phone auto-corrected it or anything.

Man up, accept responsibility for your actions, and move on. Good God man, you're acting like a Republican here...

Russky: redmond24: As a negro

I liked the part where he took responsibility as the candidate and apologized... and then I kept reading.

" to accuse me or my campaign of intentionally using racially inflammatory language is an insult. As a person who faced the scourge of discrimination for being born Jewish in the Soviet Union, I reject any form of racial and ethnic bias."

Wow. I've never heard this one before. He is basically saying that all ethnic minorities are immune from being called racist because theyre ethnic minorities. Bullshiat. Some of the most racist people I know are black.

Its funny how it seems every single time something like this happens, the apology is worse than the actual incident.

He's a douche, but i didn't get that from what he said at all. I think he was trying to say that because of his own experience he wouldn't want to put others through that, of course then he did so he's still an idiot.


No, Redmond is right. Dude is saying that because he's Ashkenazi, he can't be racist. Whatever.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Dude is saying that because he's Ashkenazi Jewish, he can't be racist.


While there many be Ashkenazi racists (I've met one or two meself), but it's possible he isn't Ashkenazi. There are plenty of Russians who may not follow Ashkenaz traditions - they may be Hassidic (meaning they'd have a whole different set of customs) and use the Ari(zal)'s prayerbook - and likely more than a handful of Sephardi Russians.

People still think that a vagina can tell the difference between rapey jizz and consensual jizz. John Derbyshire lost his job for stating that one should avoid any groups of blacks, but should befriend one so as to not be overtly racist. I have relatives who refer to "working white man's hours" and "African-American engineering" things. So yes, it's perfectly believable that that someone would say negrohood.

Yeah. Why would someone who is an entrepreneurial sort grab an offensive site name and redirect it before stormfront grabs it? Who could possibly think of such a thing? Never in the history of the world has anyone anywhere thought ahead when registering a domain name! And the use of irony to defang your opponent? Unheard of in this topsy-turvy, mixed up world we live in!

Oh, man, I HATE defending Democrats, but I think you're wrong there, based on nothing more than a "what the fark could he have possibly been thinking if it wasn't a typo." My guess is somebody mangled the spelling of neighbor, hit space causing the spell check to change it to "negro," then backspaced and added "hood."

But it raises an interesting question: are there any collections of letters that spell check programs will think connote "negro"? Which ones (which letters, and which programs)? And, if so, why? That word's used less today than "wend" or "sanguinolent." Well, maybe not. But dammit, sanguinolent really should make a comeback.

Just because you grab it, doesn't mean you have to redirect it somewhere. If they were doing that, whey didn't they grab .net and the rest. And if they are grabbing it before stormfront does, how is that entrepreneurial? Yeah (I prefer to say the meaningless "yeah" at the end so I don't sound so know-it-all.)

Heh. 16 years of Jewish education and my current agnosticism means I have all this knowledge with no outlet. You farkers are my outlet, and I like to inform when I can.

Also, I was just telling people at work that Manischewitz must exist only so that a joke about kosher/crappy wines has a landing pad. I don't think I've ever seen a bottle of it at my folks, and at other people's houses, it always sits forlornly at the bottom of the wine rack. Ironically, I know Conservative Jews who buy it by the case. For Passover, for some strange reason (there are plenty of kosher-for-Passover wines).

Israeli wines win awards (from personal experience, the Yarden and Gamla labels are fantastic).

Gefilte fish from a jar = crap. Handmade or store-bought (I'm speaking about your local kosher butcher, who likely "hand"-makes it) = win. Especially with either white or purple horseradish sauce.
