In all fairness this is how lawyers operate, where they fight dirty to the point where they attack a suspect's character if someone isn't willing to porjur themselves for them. Using a person's skin color is just one of the many dirty tactics they use.

Couldn't be more right there Tote.
My mother and I were discussing power and how it corrupts. Mostly it was a joke over running for our state legislature. Me personally, I believe work should be rewarded bases on merit. I used to work in fast food and I would hear people say that they needed more hours and they were newbies on the job. My boss then would tell them that you work fast you get more hours. I was in fast food then. Also senority played an issue and your work ethic.

True some things do come if you have connections but you have to prove your worth too. The racist game as you call it, my grandpa and pops would say that it is a means to get something for nothing. Granted my grandpa was speaking about blacks, I get the feeling that is accurate in terms of the racist card being played.

So it's come down to word technicalities?

Just another means of being PC. Something that everyone seems to be caught up in.

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I wanted more slurs against Africans, It's just that they made a point of including every other Race and Creed (Especially Mexicans for some reason) but steered away from black

I didn't actually read/look at the link but was actually making a sarcastic remark to being PC. I admit myself that I don't use PC terms because quite frankly I find them to be stupid at times in an attempt to be more enveloping of diversity.
Frankly the exclusion can reflect a bias on the part of the person who wrote it. In a way it could be reflective of the fact that the author may be black himself and is unwilling to 'diss' his people but is willing to do so for other groups. I would pull a Mel Brooks picture like Blazing Saddles any day since all groups are up for grabs in the poking fun department concerning race jokes.

If native americans haven't been victimized I don't know who has.

I don't mind being called a Racist Cracker, if it's in the right context...
I don't know funny stuff? If all you have as a comedian is making fun of them that's a pretty weak act. Note: didn't watch the clip, but I'm not a fan of any race jokes.


Since this topic won't die I'll add my bit (and help keep it alive).
There are two sides to this on the one hand after a certain amount of understanding, and yes guilt, any more is just beating yourself up unnecessarily. You can't help what your ancestors have done, but you do control your actions and amazingly the vast majority of black people don't hate you (certainly not personally, fashionistas excluded). Plus excessive apologies are as awkward to receive as they are to give.

On the other hand I don't trust (to put it mildly) those crusading against the idea that there was (is) something wrong with this country. And I believe most anti PC rhetoric is just because those that would use hate speech want to be able to do it with no consequences and that isn't in my opinion what's best for this country. Would you rather hurt someone's feelings rather than edit yourself?
