All right; HERE is ANOTHER 'STUPID' non-news issue:
That guy from Seinfeld has mad so VERY RACIST REMARKS PUBLICALLY!
Sounds like Gibson and his remarks!
Like Gibson, this dude went on the news claiming he is NOT A RACIST!!!
Alright, fine, he says he isn't, but I tend to disagree with BOTH of their claims of NOT being racist! All they said was what was in theri heart, all they did was accidentally (whether or not it sliped by because of alcohol, it could NEVER have come out if it wan't there to begin with, get ME drunk and ask me my thoughts on other races (or my own) and you will STILL never ear anything approaching a racist remark, it isn't there so it can't come out).
That, however, is NOT why I am posting this here. What I want to know is where is the outrage when a person of color (that is; a NON- White person) says anything racist against Whites, why is it not covered for the racism it is? Last time I checked the dictionary; Racism was about being judged BASED ON THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN RACES! Nothing in that definition said, 'Racism only exists in the direction of White towards other races' Nope, not there. So why does the media (and by extension the rest of the 'world') give a seemingly 'free pass' to these acts? I am not silly; Racism is a human fault that won't go quietly into the night, but it might go faster IF we ALWAYS call to task ANY person/group that makes racist remarks!
In MY opinion; the more you try to pretend it away, hide it in the dark, look the other way, the longer it will remain and eventualy, the greater the damage it will cause! It is like a cancer - you know it is there, but do nothing, all that will happen is it will GROW and destroy!
Again, that is my opinion and unfortunately; it seems to be truth of the world today.
I have known people like this. They try desperately to fit into another group and do their best to stay away from anyone of their own heritage, in some cases, even distancing themselves from their own families.
I am tired of all this bull[bleep]! I do really beilieve in freedom of speech. the morality police again .......obviously forgot some people.yeah, he might have said a bad thing but so what.... who cares. now we have all the blacks up in "stupid" arms again. the bad blacks are the ones that cause this crap. maybe if they straightened up thier own vocabulary this would not happen. well this issues can go on and on.. i am done.more power to the literate and proper speaking vocale people
Sorry Cyb, you can speak freely here but I do censor profanity in the public areas. I am sure people can still figure out what you said though. - MACJR
I am not sure it is fair to say "have all blacks up in ‘stupid’ arms again." This in effect is saying that ALL black people were insulted and that they ALL have their arms up. Even worse, you are saying that their arms are stupid. Do you really think that all black people have stupid arms? Or did you mean that all black people are stupid for raising their arms in protest? What did you mean? I can see the potential for a lot of people being insulted by your words Cyb. Think about it.
It is often someone not being clear about what they mean that cause large scale problems. In some cases, it has much less to do with the thought police that it does with thoughtless speakers.
People really should be careful of how they say things if they know that others can be offended by what they say. This is just being courteous and sensitive to others, not necessarily and example of being controlled by the thought police.
However, being fired for one instance of being thoughtless may be an example of “The Thought Police” in action. If someone says that they are sorry, and mean it, and those who were offended accept the apology, then why fire the person? If this was not a first time offence, but one of several slip ups, then I can understand.
Since I have never heard the Imus show, and I am assuming that this is what you are outraged about Cyb, I have no idea if Imus made a habit of sticking his foot in his mouth, or not. To tell you the truth, I don’t even know what he said. I just gathered from the headlines that it was not very ethnically friendly.
