That.

Trying to overuse words like "nigger" or "faggot" or any other word associated with a negative stereotype in order to desensitize them is absurd. That is a blatant attempt to redefine the word. Why would you want to do that? Fuck those words. I want them to exist with their negative connotations because I can use them as an identifier for fools, ignorant-asses, and racists. They demonstrate the very animal nature of humans and the "in-group" mentality we all adhere to, just like other animals.

Language may be the only real thing separating us from other animals and ALL of the words serve a purpose, and not all of them good. So use whatever words you wish, but don't expect people to be okay with your use of certain words, especially for those of us who grew up in places where racism still runs rampant and words like nigger are VERY MUCH USED TO OFFEND. The fucking KKK was founded 15 minutes from where I grew up and even came to my fucking high school once. I have no patience for ignorance and assholes.

That's one of the best posts I've ever read. Thumbsup

If I can't tolerate stupidity I'm gonna be at a serious disadvantage at playing whatever game this is properly. ... I mean it's all fucking around me. It's like goddam nitrogen. Big Grin

I find myself now only intolerant of intolerance, and only vaguely. ... and briefly.

If you can't tolerate stupidity, why are you an atheist?

I can't tolerate stupidity, therefore I am an atheist.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Racism on this forum
Ok so after all of this what have people learned??? How can we become stronger and move on from lessons learned???

For me ive not really seen much that I myself would class as "racist" (in a direct attacking way) however now I have heard other peoples viewpoints I can see why they would think this.

Ive also learned to be a teeny weeny bit more cautious to what I say..... not in a way that stifles my own opinion but just a reminder to show a bit more respect to other peoples backgrounds.

Whilst I may not be sensitive to these issues, I have learnt that a lot of people are.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

RE: Racism on this forum




Is it just me or does every time I hear that song I gotta close my eyes scrunch up my face and sing that song aloud?
Just me?
