- Used the “n-word” twice in an interview, while defending the actions of his racist character.
- Choice quotes from an interview about his role as a Neo-Nazi in the movie Ned
- Describes the character as “not really a Nazi” and a “poor twisted soul.”
-If you “take it too seriously” you “probably shouldn’t see the movie.”
-Says the movie, which is about a fucking NEO-NAZI FALLING “IN LOVE” WITH A BLACK WOMAN “isn’t about racism.” To him, it’s about “people with problems and how they choose to deal with them.”
-Describes it as “sweet and endearing.”
You realise that no one can PROVE that Santorum was going to say "Nigger"? Fine, it looks pretty damn likely, but you can't present it as fact, because it's not. He never finished whatever he was saying, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to know for sure. I don't like Santorum at all, but you can't present speculation as fact, no matter how likely it seems.
Stop playing devil’s advocate. That’s like me pointing a gun to you and the bullet just missing, then trying to save my ass by saying, “it never hit you; so you can’t say it was a fact.”
Why we say white people react like 5 year olds to being told they can't say the n-word
This post is about to be a bit lengthy, as it is a conversation I had on my Facebook (in my inbox) with a former friend of mine. I posted a status saying this today on Facebook:
I have gotten really intolerant of my white friends or white people around me using, whether in excess or at all, the n-word. But what good does it do to tell you? You don’t take our feelings seriously, because to you, it’s “just a word”. Your 1, 2, maybe even 3 Black friends told you they don’t care, so you just use the word so freely, even addressing your white friends as the n-word. If you use it around me, and I ask you to stop, and you don’t, our friendship will be severed. Yes, it is “that serious” — people have died, and STILL die, over that word. You’re not cute or funny when you say it, and if it’s “just a word”, it shouldn’t be tough to stop using.
It was met with pretty decent responses (I had one person say, “As a white person, I don’t like saying that word, but I also don’t like my Black friends using it either”, to which we settled that rather quickly.
Then, the bullshit came.
friend, Sara, said this: “That’s bullshit anyways. It’s no more excusable for a black person to use it whether you want to admit it or not.”
So, true to my word… I deleted her. I do not have time for 101 shit with someone who is already being resistant. I have known this girl for years. We were the only open lesbians in our high school, and I never liked her “like that”, and she told me she’d “never date a Black girl; they’re not attractive me”. So, yeah, this is where we’re starting at.
I’m going to post the beginning of our chat and put the rest under the thread so I don’t clog up peoples’ dash, but the meat of this conversation is REALLY in this content so, yeah.
Her: I think it’s funny how people feel the need to shove their opinions down everyone’s throat and can’t tolerate the idea of anyone else having a different opinion. I also think its interesting that you can’t defend what you’re saying against my opinion.
Me: Because your opinion is invalid and there is no need to defend my statement.
Her: First of all, what you said is your opinion, and what i said was mine, that means they arent right or wrong. But why not tell me what makes it “invalid” as opposed to your opinion? Then maybe I could understand your logic rather than just being “left in the dark”. I like to know why peoples opinions are what they are when I don’t agree with them because then sometimes it changes my opinion. But I generally think that discrimination is wrong from any angle.
¿Cómo se dice? The Meaning of 'Gringo'
Last week, Fox News host Megyn Kelly was appalled that some students in Arizona schools read books that called non-Latinos “gringos,” comparing the term to the N-word in her story about the Arizona ethnic studies ban.
“Referring to white people as ‘gringos’ — is that appropriate? What if these texts referred to black people as the ‘N-word?’”
“Uhhh whaaaaaaaat ARE youuu talking abouuuuuuuuuut Megyn Kelly?” was my first reaction.
NB4R: The N-Word Edition
Why are white people so interested in using the N-Word?
Like what is it?
You want to feel closer to Tupac? He’s dead, people.
You want to drink with David Dukes and let it rip at the bar? He’s irrelevant and dumb.
You want to recite Elvis Costello lyrics without feeling uncomfortable?
Whatever the case, NO. You can’t use the word.
Get over it. Move on. Debate some other racist/bigoted tripe.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go yell the N-Word in the bathroom over and over, because I’m black, just because and it will annoy the fuck out of you.
So I'm an avid music lover and...
My parents own a buttload of CD’s and they’re all (or at least mostly) in the one of the closets. I was looking through some of them last night, just to see what was there, and then I came across Marilyn Manson’s album: Smells like Children. I have that one song of his, Sweet Dreams (are Made of These), so I decided to look on the back to find the title.
I noticed several song titles with the “F” word censored out, and just thought ‘eh’ but then I got to the last title: “Rock ‘n’ Roll N*****”
First of all, the “N” word on there wasn’t censored, but the other curse words were (Dafuq?). Secondly, I was curious as to why Manson, a white guy, would use that word. I temporarily discarded the though, since I had things to do. About 5 minutes ago (before I started typing this) I decided to look up the lyrics just ‘cause. I mean, I knew I’d probably be offended, but damn.
Here’s a link the the lyrics. TW Racism (does racism need a TW or am I just being extra cautious?)
Near the end, though… Gattamn, I hate people.
