The problem is if the shoe was on the other foot the black community would go crazy.

I've had an Asian kid use his fingers to open his eyes wide making fun of my non slanted eyes.

Am I racist because I think 'Charlamagne Tha God' is a stupid name?

p.s. I've never seen/heard of that person, I assume it isn't their birth name.

Anything with "the" in the name as an in your face descriptor is stupid. I also thought Prince's Symbol name was dumb as well.

My wife is always amazed white people tell her words are racist against Asians that everyone in Asia uses.

What's the point of your name being something you can't pronounce?

Only if she sings them. You aren't supposed to sing the lyrics if you're white.

Since you're white everything you do is racist.

Problem solved.

Rejoice!

That would all depend on the context..


If it is saying it is a negative trait to have Asian type eyes then it is racists..

If it is saying it as a good or neutral thing then it wouldn’t be racist..

Racism = saying that one or more races is inferior/superior to one or more races..

So if your not making a claim like that then by definition it is not racist..

Which is one reason the conservative propaganda where they pretend everytime someone falsely accuses someone of racism. That means they are really racist. Lol


We would be far better off if everyone knew the definitions of the words they spout.

Yet black people say it's racist to say the n word regardless of whether or not they mean it as an insult.

Not hateful or discriminatory. Not particularly creative either.

Fair game, poorly played.

Lol, my intimate moments in life have been around the world and with foreign tourists in my area every summer.
I am attracted to all different shapes and styles of the female form regardless of race. If I see beauty it is colourblind for sure.

I don't know anything about the guy in the OP but "Smoke got my eyes lookin’ Korean" in itself is not racist if he has no internal disrespect for Korean people and their eyes.
People are too sensitive these days, the line in the rap/song is no different to say "I last longer than an Ethiopean distance runner" because it is a fair point. One of the most impoverished nations in the world, fastest long distance runners. Is it racist to suggest that genetics are at play there? I say no.

Remember the film "White men can't jump", imagine the tears if a similar film was made "Black men can't swim" not only racist but sexist to many who would be sobbing in their safe cry cupboards.
I'm glad I don't know anyone in real life who gets offended about the lamest of things.

I have friends of different races and we actually tease each other big time. I joke to my black mate he is faster than me because he learned to run after being chased by tigers as a kid (He's as British as me, born here), he's offered to do night time missions to dodgy places teasing me that my pale white skin shines too bright but he can slip around in the shadows lol.
Banter is banter and "Smoke got my eyes lookin’ Korean" is not racist in the sense of real racism, people should cry about the actual problems in the world, not a silly line in a song/rap.

So a reply to: OccamsRazor04

That’s because the N word is only a negative lol..


Now if you are talking about “nigga” then it depends on if you know them well enough for them to understand the context ..

Your black friends wouldn’t care or call you a racist because they know the context..
vhe
A stranger isn’t gonna know the context and judging by the fact open racism being cool was WAY less than a life time away.. it’s understandable they would assume you meant it in the worst way..

In my experience there are few friends more loyal than other races onzce you actually become good friends..
z

Which is why some Dems skate after saying questionable things..

If the person has been a supporter of the local black community and says something questionable. They get the benefit of the doubt. as

If it is a republican who has made his bones off spouting about welfare queens people assume the worst..

So when a black person says it to their friend it's an insult?

I know right. I had a couple gay buds that we joked around that I found his hairy arse to be disgusting and my arse is exit only brutha. It's all in context I suppose. Friends can say that to one another, but you tell a Korean girl you don't know Eni Meni Pe Po Jih Da(spelling), and you are just asking to get stabbed.
