Is being accused of racism the new insult or threat?

    Its another way to not have to think about someone else's opinion or reasoning. Saves effort to lump everyone you dislike into one group.

    You might be a racist if you don't agree with the Left Wing.

    You might be a traitor/non-patriot if you don't agree with the Right Wing.

    Ergo, you might be a racist traitor if you are libertarian.

    :wow:

    I saw a comedy skit about it the other day. Key and Peele if I'm not mistaken. They said "racist" is the white mans "N" word. Honkey didn't work, cracker didn't work, but racist works. It was funny and true.

    Translation:

    He will waste your time then buy from someone else...

    When he says cash he means cash, a briefcase stuffed with currency...

    I'm offended by use of the "h" and "c" words. Why the mods allow the use of such words while condeming the use of the "n" word is beyond me.

    Back in the day of pot, free love and protest, some of the most racist people I knew were white guys with afros trying to hit on black women. I was in Mass at the time.

    Correct. That is why I dumped him fast. Now he has a lawyer from some free legal service basically threatening me if I don't find the guy a condo.

    Without an agency agreement, documentation of where the money came from and a FIRPTA statement, no realtor will deal with him. His best bet is a for sale by owner. But then he has none of the protections that come with using an agent.

    He came off like "bend the rules for us or we will report you for discrimination" :steamed:

    Yeah, honkey and cracker are perfectly acceptable in most any social setting. Can't use the "N" word anywhere in any context.

    If one is a minority, they can be a racist against their own "kind". That's happened to me.

    What's the deal "88" or "14/88" or a variation at the end of a screen name? Does that have anything to do with racism?

    Agreed. I used to live in an extremely liberal town filled with illegals, and I was called a racist on more than one occasion because I think illegals need to be sent packing. Their most common line of thought was "I'm an illegal alien, but I'm not doing anything wrong, you have no right to kick me out." "Hmm, lets see, and what does ILLEGAL mean?!?!?!" :steamed:

    A minority can be racist against anyone and face no repercussions. I have run into this many times. Be a white kid living in a mostly black neighborhood in the south. It hurt at times. I couldn't even use the local laundromat.

    I have read news stories about black leaders spouting anti-Semitic BS openly and in public. In one particular incident, a black minister was addressing a crowd at a rally, and he attacked Jews for their "historical crimes" against blacks. The part of his babbling that got my attention was his description of Jews: "...them greedy ole hooknose Jews...".

    Who here has heard of that? If a white or Jewish person said something like this about blacks, look for a burning at the stake.

    Anyone remember Jesse Jackson and his "New York City is Hymietown" comment? :steamed:

    Taken to the extreme? In America?

    Best definition of racism I know of, is that it can only be defined from EXPERIENCE. Not from political opinion or any other form of absolutism. With that in mind, as a Navajo, I can't define what is racist for a Black person and.....yes....even White person. Empathy, mutual respect to understand and/or hate each is much more doable within this definition. Many of the short-cutt-to-thinking/absolutist-mindset do not understand that balance is often right there in front of us in the form of contradiction. But that requires thinking and being wrong from time to time.

    "88"

    HH. Heil Hitler

    "14/88"

    14 words by David Lane

    "88" is for David Lane's 88 precepts or 88 word statement in "Mein Kampf"

    Learned about this while going through several gang classes.

    **I had to look up the meaning of "88". I knew it was for HH but couldn't remember what else it was for.

    i got called a racist quite often when i used to work as a security guard. funny thing, it was always the people either actively stealing things, or people i had caught before stealing that accused me of that.
