PostSubject: The Issue of Racism in America   Sat Oct 15, 2011 6:57 am

It might be helpful to have a thread that is constantly updated with all the latest terms and pejoratives that are racist or racially insensitive. I know I'm having trouble keeping up with all the ways in which I offend people on a daily basis with racist language. These days you can't be too careful.

I've already discovered that using the term "black hole(s)" is racist. Now according to MessNBC's Ed Schultz, using the term "break" is racist:

http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/ed-cain-says-what-white-gopers-want-hear

Schultz said that Demint, whom Cain has mentioned as a potential running mate, repeated an "old southern racist term when talking about defeating President Obama during the health care debate." Schultz's example? He quoted Demint saying that "If we are able to stop Obama on this [health care law], it will be his Waterloo. It will break him." For clarity, Schultz repeated the offending line, "It will break him."

Dr. James Peterson, director of Africana studies at Lehigh University, explained that "break"is a racist verb, "a term that was used to destroy, mentally and physically, slaves." Accordingly, the Demint line demonstrated "how dark some of these racial discourses can be in presidential politics." Peterson said that Cain, by naming Demint as a possible VP pick, "gives those folks a pass" on racism.


Damn! Now even verbs are racist!!!

I guess we all have a racist part in our personal make-up. The trick is to be concious about it and be able to handle it. Having two daughters one to start puberty I am quite sure in her choice for boy/girlfriend I might get tried in my convictions. :affraid:

I regard anyone who won't sleep with me as racist/heterosexist/homophobic.

Oppers is one of the worst offenders in this forum.

An afro-centric asshole accused me of being racist when I told him to take a 2x4 and shove it up his black ass. But everything for him is black this and black that, he's like a fucking black supremacist although he lives in a shithole. That's cuz he was bitching about worldwide Governments owing blacks reparation money. Like I'm letting someone tax me to pay your fucking ass. It got heated and when I'm pissed anything can come out including racial epithets. Two of my other friends were laughing like hyenas and incidently, they are mixed race. It doesn't mean I'm racist but it does mean I can insult. You fucking baboon.

This afro-centric guy then comes over to get his latest issue of Wonder Woman, yeah, he loves whitey too

That's a great story laugh but seriously that's what you have to do when correct thinking clowns start getting all superior. Give it back.

Cashier Fired For Receipts Labeled ‘Ching’, ‘Chong’ At OC Chick-fil-A

http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/12/13/cashier-fired-for-receipts-labeled-ching-chong-at-oc-chick-fil-a/

There is so much wrong with this story I'm not sure where to begin. Assuming that the story is even 100% correct, where is the racism in calling someone "Ching" or "Chong"? How is that racist? Secondly, where is the full reporting on this story? It gets a 22-second airing on a CBS affiliate and that's it? Thirdly, and most importantly, how does this even rise to the level of being newsworthy? According to Chick Fil A, the cashier was "immature", which I translate to mean "young". Since when did the immaturity of a fast-food restaurant worker suddenly become a major news story?

Fourthly, how did the two customers know each other and know enough about each other to take their receipts to the manager at Chick-Fil-A and/or CBS local news? None of that is explained in the report. Something smells fishy.

Fifthly, do these two customers feel better now? Are their skins so thin that they can't handle being called "Ching" and "Chong"? :roll: :roll:

I resent that!!

I wouldn't be offended if someone called me a "cracker", but that's not a commonly recognized last name like "Ching" or "Chong" would be over in China. It's like someone with red hair and pink cheeks being "offended" that a Chick-Fil-A cashier called them "O'Grady" or "Shaugnessy" on their receipt. "Chong" is not even an insult. It's not like Asian people are routinely referred to as "Chong-chuckers" or "Chong monkeys" or "Chonggers". I mean, who the hell gets upset at being called "Smith" or "Johnson" or "Chong"???? It IS a common last name for Asian people.

It's a ridicurous over-reaction by Chick-Fir-A and they should be embarrassed. If I weren't already not-eating at McDonalds for their advocacy of racist organizations like 365Black.com (Hey! I'm black and lovin' it!!!) I'd probably add Chick-Fil-A to my boycott list as well.

I don't like Chick-Fil-A.

I get the craving for it a couple of times a year and it seems to me it always hit me on Sundays when they are closed!

They are also stingy with their refills; they will give you ONE refill for your drink and they mark your cup so you won't be able to abuse it!!

I'm not racist, but I don't believe in whitewashing cultural or superficial differences just in the name of political correctness. If someone's black, referring to them as such isn't racist. It's fact. It shouldn't be a crime to call a spade a spade.

Ok, bad joke.

What I find interesting is with the increase in DNA sequencing and research, I would not be surprised to see some form of eugenics make a comeback. Not in the nasty Hitler eugenics way but the general principle of it all. IIRC, we know now that black Africans are closer to true homo sapiens than white Europe. How you interpret that is up to you, but I can see far more distinguished identification of races and ethnic backgrounds as they expand that kind of research into why we are the way we are.

What you're talking about there is not eugenics, but simply more precise biological classification of races - physical anthropology..Eugenics is an applied science - selective breeding transferred from livestock to man, through means of steriisation, anti-immigration/miscegenation policies, and ultimately state execution.

The problem arises when one starts developing a hierarchy. From then on you're treading on thin ice.

You're right, my mistake. Though I'm sure you agree physical anthropology could quite easily lay the ground for eugenics to become mainstream. It's already being practiced in some places and some forms after amniocentesis and other prenatal tests come back with less than desirable results.

It only takes a breakthrough that people of genetic makeup X are more susceptible to disease A and a high profile outbreak of disease A for a populist politician to use that as grounds to restrict immigration/limit social liberties.

And I don't mean to say that as a sleight to physical anthropology, I'm a fan of it.

Physical anthropology like anthropometry, craniometry, and number of other disciplines, can be used as a blueprint for eugenics. But in the end they're only a means.

I know that tests for genetic mutations (i.e. Down Syndrome or Sickle Cell Anemia) are accepted practice, but I don't know about race. I guess it's likely in the near future, but it all depends on whose hands these tools fall into. I'd be more concerned when they're under the control of the state. That's usually when the sh^t hits the fan, and it's time to start thinking about relocating to Liechtenstein.

China because of its one child policy has more young men than women. Couples used abortion to hold out for a male child. Now they've got a surplus of young men who don't have women to marry. Mark Steyn suggests, that the surplus might make for good cannon fodder if they have to go to war. Bizarre.

Women are probably the hottest comodity in China next to cheap labour. There was a very good documentary about the disparity in the gender populations a few years back, we watched it in economics class. Wish I remember the name of it.

If the findings of genetic research and allied sciences prove prejudicial to preferred groups (blacks, and to some extent women), you can expect funding for said research to be yanked. Certain politically incorrect--and all the more valuable because of it--research is already taboo in American university settings. Sort of gives the lie to Leftist conceits that they are the ideology of science and rationality.

Yes of course, that's been readily apparent to anyone paying attention. Rationality and leftism have nothing in common.
