I would have thought so atlscribe.

That's why i posted what i said. Basically, there's no uproar because the 'racism' came from another black person.

The premise is silly. You cannot be racist against your own race.

Does using a racial slur make you a racist ? Many would say it's a sign of it, yes. If you use a racial slur, with hate & venom behind it, are you racist ? Again, that just doubles down on the original presumption many would say.

Guess, deep down inside, and especially on twitter... Yes, you can....

It's a crazy world...

I think some of people still see the GOP as the party that held them back 50 years ago with the civil rights movement and hold some unjust anger. And then yes look back at the history of the plantations and haciendas and look at that context for their slurs.

Someone doesn't know American history.....

True but the first statement in that quote is believed by the majority

that is a problem and would likely mean something if the masses knew the truth

It's not racist because the professor that called him that is black.

Of course, it's okay if a "liberal" says it.

and of course, you gets stars for saying that. who says it's "ok if a liberal says it". show us all those liberal quotes saying that line.....the confederate flag means 100's of years of black slavery, and whites who still fly that flag don't give a damn whether blacks hate that part of their horrendous history using that very same symbol. to the whites that fly the confederate flag, it's all about "heritage" blacks it's a history of brutalization, whippings, lynchings, rapes, and being worked to death, generation after professor publicly called him a "coon"....and it immediately goes out into republicanworld, as being definitive to what all liberals say....right...gotcha
