We humans hey.
I find it funny we can say "n-word" and we all know what word we mean. But we cannot say THE word.
Kind of like many words. f-word, c-word..... seems silly when we translate it in our heads.
I think the important thing about words and something many seem to forget is context.
The intent of how words are used.
We can take it one step further, how many non-Caucasian comedians can say things like "you white people" while then launching into a bit about white
stereotypes. But when was the last time you saw a Caucasian comedian being able to say similar?
"You Asian people" "You black people" "Women am I right?"
Gays can joke about gays and straights, but a straight can only joke about straights. lest they be homophobes.
It's the hypocritical double standards of it all.
"Oh I can say this because I am (insert race/gender/religion/etc here) but when you say it it's offensive...."
Ridiculous honestly. This is why we won't ever move on as a species. People say they want equality, but their actions speak a different story of
wanting more, wanting special treatment.
Most 'oppressed' people these days have it better than most. Only people oppressing them is their selves.
But they cannot see it.
I think we should just outlaw race altogether. Make it law people can only refer to themselves and others as "human" nothing more or less.
That would fix the problem. But again, people don't really want true equality.
Too bad squeaky wheels get the grease, because the vast majority who finds it all ridiculous tend to be silent, while a few make a huge noise so that
is who gets heard.
Any way I'll see you again next year when a new play is being cleansed of things that will offend people, well except anything that might be offensive
to white men because we know you cannot be racist or sexist to Caucasian males.
No the first time Mockingbird has had this occur, won't be the last time, and it's not even the first book/play to be burned. Pretty sure we were all
having this discussion 20 years ago about Huck Finn.
History does repeat when it comes to these social issues.
Hilarious to see in a country whose known for its spouting of its main catch line of "freedom of speech" at everyone else, is happy to censor anyone
who uses said freedom of speech.
So catch you later my N-Words! Ya'll have a great day!
Amazing I can say that hey and it is no different than had I used the word itself, but it won't trigger those the actual word would upset.
Humans, you make me laugh until I cry. Because it's really sad how stupid we are for the supposed most intelligent species.
Yep, bit of a problem when some can be racist and sexist, but others cannot be simply due to the genetics they were born with.
How do people not see it?
