Same thing needs to be told to you apparently...

She said something about a black person that she wouldn't say to another black person, and neither would you. And why wouldn't you tell me that another random black woman is a black *****?

Because you know that would cause a major issue that would have to end in an apology, and the only alternative to that is you having to kick my ass because you DIDN'T apologize. There could be no other resolution.

So let's not pretend that this is something as simple as calling a black person black.

No, you wouldn't have questioned it at all.

But at the same time, you wouldn't say it unless you were in sure company. Extremely sure company.


You got that right. I don't know what's wrong with some of these silly posters.
My apologies if you believe it's an insult being black. Self hatred must suck.

What if she called her an ugly "b"? Would that be "racist"?

Bottom line. You either believe in free speech or you don't. All of the apologists here (both sides) prove they do not believe in free speech. My personal feelings of the subject mean nothing. Her right to say it is sacred.

When the wives wield political power make political speeches, they are certainly fair game. Some of them will even ride their husband's coattails into political power for themselves later on...

If not for Her husband, Cankles, Her Majesty, would be molesting young female interns in some obscure ambulance chasing "law" firm...

I'm being serious here. We have 3 anti-PC insults:

Ugly: folks get upset that "attractive" folks get the breaks

Black: race card...an obvious hot topic

Bit**: gender attack

So the initial post that got her canned focused on "race". What about ugly people turned down for loans? What about women turned down for a loan?

I'm just trying to keep up. I love the circus show.

Let's face the facts if a black man labels a white guy as an "ugly white boy" it would be racist and so are this lady's (using the term lady loosely) comments.

She would not work for me.

When you use the word black, brown, yellow or white between two negative words the odds are the comment is racist if you are describing a person.

Of course there is free speech. Nobody is saying otherwise.

That doesn't mean there won't be consequences for what you've chosen to say.
