Or maybe you're just one of those red, green, blue types....let's hope not...super racist if so man.

Well Paula's lost another one,

Exactly, as much as I love bi-sexual black women - you've already figured me out though.

Back to the serious discussion, I constantly joke about every race including my own - but then again I'm a not-so-serious joke of a human being who feels like he's allowed to do that since all I've ever been around is multiple races. I'm sure it could rub people who don't know me the wrong way, but whatever. Racism is all about context in my eyes - if you're lashing out in anger or hatred - you're wrong. If you're joking with friends or family about stereotypes, especially when they're of that race, that's a completely different type of scenario. I think some people mix those two up.

Hell one of the funniest little things I always do with the women I date is every time I do something for them in public, I call out reverse slavery. Tell other people that my family couldn't afford reparations so I'm this chick's house slave for a month.

Then again, I'm cool like Hank Hill.

I agree still it's usage in any form is inherently racist but also understand that context does play a role and it can be said without racist connotation. That distinction is probably more difficult to determine if the speaker is not black or a good friend.
No. A White person walking up to a group of random blacks with the phrase, "Wassup, n****s!" even within the context of it meaning "friend" or "brother" would not go over the same as a black person walking up to a group of random blacks with the same phrase. Context with the word is complete and utter bullshit and deep down, you know it.

I never suggested it would. That's why context is important. Who is saying it to who and how.

You lack basic understanding of anything.
Explain to me when and how that scenario you presented would be important?
When do you want and need to go up to a group of black people you don't know and supposedly 'friendly' address them that way.
You are ignorant and a troll.

You don't take a word that was meant to be offensive and a put down to your own people, take off the 'er', add an 'a', and then suddenly say it's okay to use it. The origin of it was still racist. If I went up to a group of black people and said 'hey, what up, .....s?', it would be different than a black person going up to a group of black people and saying it, no matter how 'friendly' I use it.


Bottom line, they took a racist term and made it 'okay' to use just because they changed a few letters and decided it would have a different fucking meaning. How stupid. Not sure what's so hard to understand about this. It's not in the way someone is using it, it's the fact that it comes from a word that put down their entire group of people.

Because that is the context in which a random White or black person in my scenario used it in. The CONTEXT. The thing that you've been going on about. Get it? Probably not.

So first the context doesn't matter and is bullshit, and now the context is the important thing.
Okay. Yeah. Cool.

I meant important in the sense that it needs to happen where a white person needs to go up to black group of strangers and address them that way. It's not important is the answer. It's not an issue. It doesn't affect you or come up in daily life. Do you sit around all day and think about how terrible it is that you'd be receiving a negative reaction on this vs. a black person. No, because it really doesn't matter and is not important. It's used differently (and (big point here) it's usage (intent) is more known within race vs. outside of it).

You say that I don't know what I'm responding to. Try again. That was you.
Re-read the post I made that you were responding to about 100 times until what I was saying (maybe) sinks into your tiny brain.
