FTFA: "My old man instilled in my mind from a young age, the only good (racial slur) is a dead (racial slur)," he wrote in closing.

I think I see the problem.  Racists assholes being taught to be racist assholes at an early age by other racists assholes and never thinking otherwise.  But  no, thinking this way is a complete choice and not ingrained into people as children.

repulsive.  i was 13 when hank was chasing/breaking the record, and remember the vitriol well.  i thought he handled it well then, and  better now.  classy guy, i'd like to meet him.

So were these racist douchebags just trying to prove Hank Aaron's point, or did they have one of their own?
 
2014-04-15 05:13:26 PM
Well I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be receiving sexist hate mail.

All of them. You and a few other Farkers probably wrote a few.

Yeah, the article used selective editing, here is Edward's COMPLETE message:

"Hank Aaron is a scumbag piece of (expletive) (racial slur)'' read an email from a man named Edward, according to USA Today.

"My old man instilled in my mind from a young age, the only good (racial slur) is a dead (racial slur)," he wrote in closing.


...and furthermore. How DARE you call me a racist? I'll have you know that just yesterday, I swerved my car so that I wouldn't hit a (racial slur), because I didn't want to clean up a grease spot on my hood. I also let that (racial slur) at the bank hand me my money last week, although I took it home and threw it in with the laundry.

--Edward

See? Totally not racist.

Indeed.  There's something refreshingly honest about racism that comes from a KKK member.  They're honest about their hatred and hostility toward 'different people.'

It's the ones who smile at you and share a joke during your interview before shredding your resume because you're not the preferred color/sex/whatever that feel slimy in comparison.

Its the Sarkeesian effect. Talk about misogyny, acknowledge it exists, get flooded with misogynistic e-mails about what a coont you are.

In this case, it was racism, but the same principles apply.

Nothing other than their relative scarcity.

After near constant anonymous racial incidents turning out to be faked, you have to be slighly skeptical of the more overt and over the top ones.

It is really telling when the first reaction from him and people like him isn't saying something like "This is bad, and who ever did is evil", it is to defend the offending group and try to claim the offending group is the real victim because they are being set up.

Does it hurt being that stupid.  It looks like it hurts.

According to USA Today, the Braves organization has received hundreds of letters, emails and phone calls since Aaron made his comments a week ago.

One man called Aaron a "racist scumbag," while another vowed to never attend another Braves game until Aaron is fired from the team's front office. A man named David said he plans to burn Aaron's autobiography.

Regardless of what's "ingrained into people as children," anyone who doesn't start thinking for themselves at some point, asking questions about what they were taught as children, and coming to their own conclusions about the world isn't worth the air they breathe.

If you're an adult racist because you were taught racism as a child, it is a choice. You've chosen to never grown as a human being.

As I got older I discovered that the only good chicken was a dead chicken, and maybe some live hens in a coop  far enough away I don't have to hear them. That's the only permutation of that adage that works.

Because even dead ducks are evil.
