re: LSU women's tennis player who used racial slur no longer part of the team - Abraham H Parnassis
[quote]No, that's not why you're falling apart. Would you use it in regular conversation if you were black?[/quote]No, I wouldn't. Sadly, some people don't feel the same. They think it's okay to use it as long as no one can hear it or if the audience is composed in a certain way. I've been ...

re: LSU women's tennis player who used racial slur no longer part of the team - Abraham H Parnassis
[quote]I addressed it. I don't have any black friends. (Perhaps I didn't make that clear, so I edited my "word salad") And there are lots of words that shouldn't result in ruining someone's life that I don't use, and certainly don't greet people with. Perhaps I should just greet my customers w...

[quote]Oh that's right, I forgot you've been qualifying the trashy disgusting nature of the word this whole time. I'd say you're falling apart, but I'm pretty sure you're the only one who ever thought you had it together.[/quote]Falling apart how? Because I think it's shitty thing for someone to ...

[quote]You just called a TON of black people trash here, David Duke. Would you tell them that to their face? If not, are you a hypocrite or a coward?[/quote]No, white people that use that word are trash. I was clearly referring to her and her ilk, but nice try....

re: LSU women's tennis player who used racial slur no longer part of the team - Abraham H Parnassis
[quote]I've seen some variation of this response posted multiple times and it's not the "gotcha" you think it is. First, it's pretty racist, because you are expecting the black people in your scenario to get angry and perhaps violent at hearing the word. Second, "motherfricker" is probably not ...

re: LSU women's tennis player who used racial slur no longer part of the team - Abraham H Parnassis
[quote]Yeah, such a horrible offense, saying something to friends that wasn’t Aimee at anyone individual or group. The awful thing in this is people like yourself thinking she should be punished.[/quote]So you're one of those who prefers their racism to be done behind closed doors where others sh...

[quote]I bet she more wishes she didn't hang around with people who exposed her like that. But yes, like a driver who is t-boned by a drunk driver, I assume there is some regret, as there is anytime an action is met with preposterous consequences. If the plane I'm on right now crashes, put it in ...

re: LSU women's tennis player who used racial slur no longer part of the team - Abraham H Parnassis
[quote]Words are not awful. They are just a combination of sounds made by your vocal chords and mouth. It's intent that matters. I could call you some random word like broomstick and, depending on my intent, it would be way worse than saying that in a friendly way. You people are fricking so...

[quote]I'll think about it. Which one are you? Or do you use it openly and freely? [/quote]I don't use it. I think it's an awful word. I bet this tennis player wishes she hadn't said it. I bet the owner of the Phoenix Suns wishes he hadn't said it. They fricked around and found out....

[quote]Well that's dumb and I would guess you're one of very few people who think that. I am not surprised that you said that though. Where's the downside to just lying to help your own point on a message board? Would it surprise you to know that there are groups of trashy people of mixed races w...

[quote]You really dragged it out just to be able to have the big reveal that in your opinion it's a trashy word? Do you think you're the first person in here to say something like that?

re: LSU women's tennis player who used racial slur no longer part of the team - Abraham H Parnassis
[quote]I imagine there are lots of reasons. A pretty obvious one is because they don't have permission, and it's easier to not say a word that makes you look trashy anyway than it is to convince black people that sometimes tone and intent matter a little bit too.[/quote]So we agree it's a classless ...
