Being treated by white people as "model minorities" instead of "born suspects" kinda helps in the "getting over it" thing, even though that's racist as well. And the exclusion act pertained to a people who chose to come here to work, make new lives for themselves and seek their fortune in a foreign country, and deal with the resultant racism they encountered. Not quite the same as being dragged here on boats against their will and made to work for free.

DROxINxTHExWIND may be offended because that word is still used in a derogatory manner today, in 2013, toward people of African ancestry. I'm sure you know the history of the word, and how it was and is used, so I won't go into that. Just realize that you don't get to tell him or anyone else what they should be offended by, as they don't have the right to tell you.


You can't call a word vulgar and then pepper your daily language with it. Then call foul when someone calls you out for the hypocrisy.

I have little pity for a culture that can't pull its pants up, abhors education, and embraces mysogeny. Perhaps a look in the mirror might shed a light on root causes.

rewind2846: Silverstaff: Believe it or not, there were a lot of parts of the south were that word was still in significant use 20 years ago. The idea that a white woman in Savannah in 1993 might use that word in an emotionally charged situation like the aftermath of a bank robbery where she was held at gunpoint is NOT surprising.

Okay... so the question still stands - as I asked another poster, "If she said that word every time she was under stress, what word would she have used if the gunman was white?"

If the "under stress" excuse is the one she's going with, then why not use the same word no matter who is holding her at gunpoint?
The answer to that is the tell. There is no excuse.


Drop the goddamn politically correct bullshiat.  Guess what: not every person is perfect, and if you're going to go all holier than thou on somebody who used a racial slur 20 years ago after they had a gun pressed to their head.

I guess you've never once in your life ever said anything you'd regret, even if it was decades prior?  Not a single racial slur, not a single sexist comment, not a single homophobic joke, not a single Islamophobic or anti-Semitic remark?

She probably would have called him an asshole, or a farker or something.  Yeah, there is an excuse, people aren't perfect, and somebody saying a word doesn't instantly make them a bad person.

So yeah, it's a fine excuse: people aren't perfect, and one racial slur said in a emotionally charged incident 20 years ago is perfectly forgivable to any reasonable person.

No, sorry, Paula, that's not acceptable. My aged grandmother was born 97 years ago when the South was REALLY segregated, AND she was not only white but also wealthy and the daughter of the town's potentate; and while she still uses the condescending term "colored people" she has NEVER used the term "n*gger."

But since she disobeyed orders in 1959 and allowed her "colored" students to pass her English class, even though she'd been instructed not to give them any special treatment, (in other words, let them fail) I've always assumed her racism was, as they say, no more than skin deep.

Mrs.Sharpier: digitalrain: The one time white people can say ni**er, OK: if it's Christmas Eve, and it's between 4:30 and 4:49 in the morning. If you white, and you're on your way to Toys 'R' Us to get your kid the last Transformer doll, and right before you walk into Toys 'R' Us, some black person runs up beside you, smacks you in the head with a brick, knocks you to the ground, stomps on your face--"take that, you cracker-ass motherfarker!" Riverdances on your head--"take that, you cracker-ass motherfarker!" Takes your money, pisses on you, and runs away--if you white, at that moment, you can say "Somebody stop that ni**er!"

Matter of fact, if you white and that happens to you, you can say ni**er for a whole month! But you gotta walk around with the police report in your pocket. In case any black people catch you sayin' ni**er, the police report will act as your freedom papers. "Hey, I heard you saying ni**er; let me see your farkin' papers. Gimme the papers; show me the papers!" [pretends to read a sheet] "Christmas Eve! 4:48! You just made it, motherfarker! Pissed on you! ...I hope they catch that ni**er!"

No, it is you who needs to fire up a few brain cells. Let me explain it to you, and I'll type slowly.

Imagine the bank holdup is going on. What word would Deen have used to describe the gunman had that person been white? As in "this asshole is robbing the bank!" Here is a guy... with a gun... robbing the bank. Simple.

now~

Imagine the bank holdup is going on. Why didn't Deen use the same word to describe the black gunman? Here is a guy... with a gun... robbing the bank. What makes him so different that he requires a whole new description?

There. Get back to me when you've thought that puzzle through.


You can conduct that tune for your Aspieland Band, but let's scratch the needle for a second. If a black woman was being held at gunpoint... by a white guy... with a gun, you would not give her the least bit of forgiveness for uttering the words "ofay, honky, or cracker" in describing the person that did so?

It's not ok to use racial slurs, and she is certainly not off the hook for the other offensive shiat she has said. But this is where you are pushing the LEAST persuasive part of your argument.

Let's requote you:"Some asshole asian driver cuts me off on the freeway, the word "gook" isn't what comes into my head, but the word "asshole" does. Some woman pushes ahead of me in line, "c*nt" is not what first comes out of my mouth. No one is perfect, but you make the choice.

Why golly, neither of these situations seem in the same level of duress as the others. To be fairer in the first count might be a Vietnam P.O.W. and in the second a man who just went through a nasty divorce.

rewind2846: In essence, you alone choose your level of bigotry, and toward whom. That is the third option.


Fair enough. I'm just not sure that's empirically true. I mean, most of the research I've seen seems to suggest that bigotry is a pretty insidious (and mostly unconscious) aspect of human psychology. Universally so. And what resides in the subconscious is pretty much by definition outside of our conscious control.

I certainly get your point that the person who also consciously practices bigoted thoughts, by putting them into their everyday language habits, are abnormally preoccupied with their bigotries. I don't disagree with that, and my point wasn't, "let's all embrace our moral failings!"

My point was simply to suggest that covert bigotry is probably the bigger social problem than the idiot who openly wears their moral failings on their sleeve. Those people are easy to spot and ridicule. My worries are for the "cultured" bigot, who is practiced enough in self-deception to have convinced themselves (and those around them) that they aren't bigoted at all.

There's a time and place for even "Lootie" to show up.  This is one of those times cause I don't care about Paula Dean calorie excessive fat infused personal life.

Mock26: MNguy: That guy at the chicken shack was n*ggardly with the ranch sauce.

Why are you self censoring?  nubianrdly is not related to n*gger.  Their etymologies are completely different.


People have been fired for making that distinction by people who can't.

Who gives a shiat?  Paula Deen sucks.  And is fat.  And is old.  She will probably be dead soon.  Or at least off TV.

Who cares? And her handlers are right. Open racism was common and the N word was commonly used.
Geeze, it happened, that's the way it was.
You can't judge past behavior with current standards. It does no good, you can't change the way it used to be.
And racism is still living large. We just don't openly express it anymore. And we openly pretend that we don't, and never did condoned it.
In fact, we are so afraid of being accused of being racist, that we won't call it out on others that clearly demonstrate it.

MNguy: Mock26: 1986, which TMZ notes is the year Paula admitted to using the word after "a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head."

Sorry, but that is a justifiable excuse for the use of the n-word.

I guess, if you're looking for an excuse to use a word.


Wow do you have to be looking for an excuse to use the word?  Sometimes words come out when you are angry.

My personal experience has been that the people who use that word in the most derogatory and vicious manner are black people talking about or yelling at other black people.

And racism isn't limited to old white people by any stretch of the imagination, and it certainly isn't limited to the United States.

If you were white and lived in the South in the 60's your probably a racist by any objective measure.  I'm not sure I'm horrified by this.

/wait am I now a rascist?

Spanky McStupid: Seriously, Fark?  You seriously believe none of us in the south ever said that word?  Hell at least, unlike some of the precious snowflakes on this forum, she told the truth.

if she responded to a guy with a gun to her head by basically saying, "do it, (n word)", she at least gets my respect for her swinging brass balls.
