What I found extremely hypocritical was when this hit the local news here in TX, they read her tweet outloud.

Here's the kicker: When they read it, they had no problem saying the word "cracker", as if it was ok.

But god forbid she had used the "N" word! Would they have said the "N" word outloud? Of course not.

So what have we learned today? That it is ok to use and say the racist word "cracker", but not the "N" word.

The hypocrisy stinks like a 3 day old diaper.

A wise man once said:

"Is this gonna get ugly, now? Huh? I hope not. Because I thought what we were here, racial differences notwithstanding, was just a couple of old friends."

I would say it's good advice but what do I know "Sooner or later I rub everybody the wrong way. "

same thing with the imus situation...
black ladies were playing basketball and he said they were some nappy headed hoes...
they flipped out and he lost his job and had to apologize...all kinds of backlash...

the thing is it was on every news station and they looped what he said about a million times....

he wound up getting his job back after he said he was sorry....

i never understood why they were upset about the nappy but not the hoe part.

www.urbandictionary.com...

nappyhead
a term used to describe someone (typically of African descent) who possesses tighly coiled, very curly hair.

^^^^whats so bad about that?

we all know what hoe means....
again, just trying to make a point

Think about some of the posts made here on ATS. Would they be made if there was a possibility that the poster would lose their job over it?


That would be why I don't use my real name here. While I'm sure they wouldn't care about 75% of my posts, there are a regular stream of them that wouldn't be popular.

I don't know who the biggest race baiters are right now

I'd say it's a tie between Jesse Jackson, al sharpton and the right wing fringe that loves to play the victim card

That is scary. But we all are held to certain restrictions in our jobs lives.

Lord knows the trouble I'd be in if my employer saw what I wrote.

sharpton jumped all over it when it happened and was calling for his head.....

I'd say the biggest "race baiters" are anyone that seriously uses the term "race baiter".

Wana go ahead and tell us who on the "right wing" is playing the vicitm other then pointing out when people who claim to be for diversity are actually being blatantly racist?
