Totally not a chore being on here for this mod Smile.

Or any of the others as far as I'm aware.

It is a chore dealing with you and Scotty. Dodgy

Don't get me started on what a chore you are! Big Grin

RE: Racism on this forum
For many years I lived in a large city in the south, Houston, where people here clearly understand that the name Nigger, comming from anyone not Black, is generally used as a divisive tool illustrating hate. I don't know about the rest of the country, as the south has informed most of my social experiences for 36 years (not all of my life though, having been born and raised in Compton, Calif, and moving south at 20). I do believe though that people all over the U.S. also have a clear understanding that the use of the name, Nigger points to a particular group of people to show division and hate, me against them, them against me.

Now, on the use of "Nigger" as used between African Americans. Having taught in public education in Houston for four years, and having heard so many African American students and African American adults use the name Nigger amongst themselves, is, I fully believe (comming from my informed perspective), a beginning dialectical healing processs that reaches out to reclaim a past owned and named by others to bring about a new identity, a rebirth so to speak, of the Africam American identity and psyche. I am not African American, and I know, because of that, that the name "Nigger" does not belong to me.

I am familiar, from other threads I have been on that some may critique the fact that I have used the name "Nigger" here. Please do not embarasse yourself with obtuse comments about that; instead, please reread my discussion.

Hate, racial slurs, ethnic slurs, and stereotyping are very offensive, at least to myself. I do believe in freedom of speach, and will defend it. But here in the threads, I see an awfull lot of needless hatred, taking the path of disorginized and thus irrational discussions--to bad. I am new to the site, and I am so affected by this I will very likely not be here long. I will leave the site before I attempt to silence you.

Not me. That's an entirely appropriate use of the word. And I thought your analysis was spot on. Thumbsup

RE: Racism on this forum
I agree with Girly. Using the word when discussing that particular word, in my eyes, is entirely appropriate. Also, to hear a clear, well thought out argument like the one from Depat, is both encouraging and enlightening.

To paraphrase Freddy Krueger from Freddy vs Jason: "WHY WON'T THIS THREAD JUST DIE!?"

Tongue

It depends on the context, but if you use the word to judge and divide, then I will call you on it, however if it is a joke, or even just a title without any hateful connotations to it, I will leave it be.

Nigger.

That is all.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

Seriously, 'Muffs, it ain't working. No

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
