Mock26: Why are you self censoring? nubianrdly is not related to n*gger. Their etymologies are completely different.
rewind2846: 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.
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.
DROxINxTHExWIND: lohphat: Arkanaut: She could just quote Chris Rock: "I love black people, but I hate attractive and successful African-Americans!"You can't be black and incensed if you accept the word in everyday speech referring to one another. It's then no longer vulgar.I wasn't aware you had the power to tell me what should and should not offend me. Don't blame black people for the "double standard". Blame your grandfather and people like Paula for being bigots in the first place.
Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: Jesus this is getting entirely out of proportion. She's an old fat woman who got famous for having a cooking show. She's not running for office or heading a major university. Who gives a fark what offensive words are in her vocabulary?If we're going to ride people out on a rail for the dumb shiat they do, I think a little bit of casual bigotry is pretty farking far down the list.
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!"That was hilarious.
MNguy: valkore: Mock26: Why are you self censoring? nubianrdly is not related to n*gger. Their etymologies are completely different.That's why.Well, and nobody in their right mind would ever say such a thing.
semiotix: Also, let's please talk about the staggering unfairness of how Dave Chappelle gets to say it but poor Paula Deen and Bill O'Reilly (et al) can't./actually, I can't believe someone hasn't brought that up yet//why, those people call each other that to one another's faces!///the injustice of it! And they call me a racist! etc. etc.

Babwa Wawa: What person could claim under oath never to have said that word?I mean, sh*t people. Come on...
lohphat: My grandfather was Chinese
lohphat: If you want to treated with respect, how about showing some self-respect?
lohphat: I don't consider getting a HS education and speaking like an adult "acting white".
Mock26: rewind2846: Mock26: rewind2846: Mock26: Different levels of anger call for different words.Bullsh*t. If a white man was equally angry at another white man, would he call that other white man a n****r?Stop making excuses, it's making you look really stupid.Stop being a brainwashed, politically correct drone. It is making you look like a farking asshole.Batter an asshole than scum that makes excuses for racists. I'll take that "asshole" t-shirt now, size xl thanks.Better make sure that the people who tell you what to think tell you it is OK to be an asshole before you go spending your money.

rewind2846: Never met an asian skinhead before. Is there an asian stormfront, because what you just wrote sounds very much like what the white version says on their website. How do you get into the meetings?
rewind2846: Fano:What are you, hard of thinking? You are pinning your checkmate to the idea that she might equally have used the n-word to describe an asian, an australian aborigine, or a caucasian?Try again, Phoenix Wright.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.
rewind2846: Most black people's "culture" is amazingly similar to the one you profess to be a part of. Why not ask one and they will tell you.Oh, and quite a few of us can spell "misogyny" as well, even though we don't practice it.
rewind2846: Lorelle: I'm no fan of hers, but she's being honest.Why do people use this phrase as if it somehow absolves the person in question of what they have done or said that was wrong?I'm in the "don't give a sh*t" category about whether she was "honest" or not, the issue is what she said. If I run around screaming that I hate Jews or Muslims or whatever dumb sh*t I could spew from my piehole, does the fact that I'm being "honest" about how I feel negate the fact that I'm an asshole?/seriously people
rewind2846: In essence, you alone choose your level of bigotry, and toward whom. That is the third option.
Fano: As a southerner, I agree to this. Better than pretending you are enlightened but somehow you can count the number of black people that have been in your house, and make great pains to mention the "black friend" that your child hangs out with, as part of some group activity
rewind2846: Mock26:It is in fact possible that he only hates that one person.Then I ask the question again: why can't the white person simply call the black person he is angry at an asshole? Jerkoff? Moron? Dickhead? Sh*t for brains? Why use n****r?
varmitydog: Nope. As an older white person from the south (I actually lived in Albany, Georgia at the same time she was there, for a short while) I know the rules, and she is full of it. Respectable white folks in the south never say n*gg*r. Only poor white trash do that. You can hate blacks with a purple passion, but if you have any class at all, you never say the word. Just the same as you would never say any other swear word. And revealing that you did in public, under oath? Please. GTFO.So I'm sorry Paula, regardless of how rich and famous you will ever become, you are simply NOKD. (not our kind, dear)
Greylight: Sooooooo her story is the bank robber forced her to say it by holding a gun to her head. I'm just paraphrasing here but I can't get that image out of my head ...Robber: "Say it, say it!"Paula Deen: "No, it's too horrible and it will go on my permanent record that I am a racist."
Arkanaut: She could just quote Chris Rock: "I love black people, but I hate attractive and successful African-Americans!"
Total witch hunt by liberal women who can't find success in the kitchen. I'm sure they'll biatch about how they have careers and don't have time to cook. Height of irony.
Mock26: 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.
Omahawg: Patti Smith couldn't take back rock and roll porch monkey either and neither will Paula Deen
Jon iz teh kewl: [encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com image 200x168]"Screw you,Marge Simpson! Don't read my books and don't make my recipes! May my curse follow you beyond the grave!" -Paula Paul
Uzzah: PainInTheASP[img.fark.net image 630x378]I don't really know why. Just because.

ten foiled hats: Babwa Wawa: What person could claim under oath never to have said that word?I mean, sh*t people. Come on...I know the group hates it, but I love N.W.A.'s nubianz4Life, and sing along to it often still.I'm white. Am I a bad person?/maybe just bad taste in music
