Now here is a question for you guys... do you consider someone racist if they holler racial slurs at people when pissed off (like say a mexican cuts your off and you cuss and scream and call him a damn spic)? Keep in mind this person also calls white folks that pisses them off redneck, *******, douche bag, ----, etc...

Call them ********....Non offensive, everyone has got one and they are pretty much the same color.

So are you saying it's ok to think racial slurs, and as long as you don't vocalize them you aren't a racist?

eh, in that situation, you are yelling at someone as payback. If your intent is to inflict emotional damage the racial slur can act as a combo multiplier on the other word or words in the combo. Let's look at a few examples.

******* = 5 ego damage points
Piece of **** = 8 ego damage points
Wop = multiplier of 3x or 15 point on it's own so

'You piece of **** ******* wop' = (5+8) x 3. That's a 39 pointer, not for the uninitiated. It's a pretty advanced combo.

isn't that true for most negative behaviors?

have you ever thought about killing someone, driving off a cliff, cheating on your gf, calling someone a racial slur, etc?

what makes somoene civilized is that they can think anything they want but modify their behavior to be acceptable.

chew on dat.

For the most part I was kidding in my post. However now that you've brought it up I thought about it a little more

Being a racists is not defined by an action, it's a way of thinking. By definition I can't be a killer with out killing someone. I can't be a cheater with out cheating. What action defines a racist? None. So when I think about killing someone, or have dirty thoughts about my wife's best friend I haven't done anything.

Racism - a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
I can believe that black people are all theives, and never let the word ------ escape my lips. However I'm still a racist.

Now if I call the Chinese guy that cut me off in traffic a stupid ******* slope, does that immediately make me a racist? What's the difference between thinking it and saying it?

I guess the racial slur could be like any other mean term. What's the difference between calling a woman ---- and a black guy spook? Or a man an ******* and a Mexican woman spic? These are terms we know hurt, and use them when we are pissed off. Is one worse than another?

EVERYONE is to some degree or another a racist. People judge others based on appearance. Whether that's skin color, hair cut, style of dress, weight or any apparent physical difference.

My problem with racism is how PC we are forced to be. We are being taught to hide our heads in shame if we laugh at a racist joke. When truely most of these things are making fun of an unrealistic stereo-type.

That's enough for me, I've got a meeting to attend and my sheet needs washing.
