The "particular context about some issue that was being discussed" is what I am questioning. I did read the entire post. when is it good and ok to be derogatory about "whitey"? the quotes werent taken out of context they were the context. Im not acting clueless, this is a topic of interest.
Oh flunkie ... thank you thank you thank you for not being so PC! You are exactly right. Whats good for the goose .....
I find the word "whitey" to be offensive- regardless if it's meant as a joke or not. I also find the negative comments on this board about URM's to be offensive. I cannot speak for manny, but I think what she's stating is that it seems as though it's okay over there in a place that's meant to give "blacks" some of their own space to utilize such offensive words to describe those that they're separating themselves from-- I certainly wouldn't want anyone to use the n word- anyplace. As such, I would appreciate the "whitey" phrase be omitted from all content.
Yes, I did a search with only the name "whitey" ... could be others .... I didnt ONLY pick the ones I found to quote ... there were PAGES of them. I selected the first 11! BP -- why are you giving me such a hard time? I'm trying to have a legit conversation here. You dont think the derogatory name calling exists on the other side or are you arguing something else? Didnt intent to go off on a tangent about this but... what are we arguing about here?
I certainly don't think that's what was meant by the references- again, I cannot speak for manny... this is my observation only... The point is that one would figure that the purpose of such a board would be to give a space for those in that group to go- to be with those that are similar if they choose to do so. I don't think the intentions of such a place were to have a place to vent or joke about "whiteys". While I understand your point about only 11 instances- who knows how many other types of remarks using other types of words to condone the same meaning.In any event, my point is that I find any type of racist remarks to be offensive- even if they're coming from those meant to offend. I find it offensive for anyone to use such immature, useless diatribe to describe another human.
