    Its a very low brow pic, but I could kinda see it as mocking the system, not mocking black people.

    Bullshit. We should talk **** about all those people equally. That's what our forefathers fought and died for.

    This is reminiscent of the several incidents where someone used the word "niggardly" and were publicly censured for it. In the 1999 case of the Wash DC mayoral staffer, he was forced to apologize and resign, tho the Mayor eventually hired him back. Julian Bond, then chairman of the NAACP, said "You hate to think you have to censor your language to meet other people's lack of understanding." He noted that as a nation the US has a "hair-trigger sensibility" on race that can be tripped by both real and false grievances.

    That's a fucking Oxymoron if I have ever heard one.

    Only as long as you either include them all in your comments, or specifically name those that you are excluding. For example, "Fat people smell, and so do Mexicans, but cripples and sado-masochists do not."

    I recall we spent a great deal of time talking about niggardly and other words like it in one of my business communication classes.
    In the end despite the fact the word has no racial component to it, its not a good choice of word.
    Know your audience is always the 1st thing and well when talking to the public your audience is pretty damn stupid.

    Other than Julian Bond's remarks, there was a deafening silence from other black leaders on this issue, as well as from other government workers.

    A white man must walk a thin (white) line, else people will label him either a damn bigot or a liberal fag. The first step is to listen to what "they" really have to say:



    Why can't we all get along?

    There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy way of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to keep themselves prominent before the public.
