I know dude, thanks. It was all I could think of since I have no idea what BET is.
FWIW my brother owns a business that provides touring coaches for musical acts and media personalities. He had Chapelle on one of his buses for Dave's comedy tour last year. Said he is one of the brightest, funniest personalities he has ever encountered. I can't believe Chapelle is now in some nut hatch in South Africa.

You did make me think. I admit I was puzzled about the BET thing.

Is it a prerequisite to being African American that a person must be familiar with BET?
Black people must watch black TV?
Are there no black people who choose to read instead of watch/owwn TV?

Top 10 Reasons Why Fans Love NASCAR

10> LOUD! CARS! ROUND and ROUND! Yay!! Football make brain hurt!
9> If there's a crash, cousin Joe Bob might find a tooth donor.
8> My humble, grassroots, Southern Confederate heritage is only affirmed when watching millionaire celebrities race multi-hundred-thousand-dollar cars at billion dollar track events.
7> Roll bars make the ultimate gun rack.
6> For a brief moment, rednecks can believe the Dukes were real. Culture validated!
5> High octane fuel tastes just like moonshine!
4> Helmet and firesuit offer much more protection than a sheet with eye holes.
3> Let's face it, not many dress codes specify a wifebeater and Skoal cap as formal dress.
2> Where else are 70,000 good ol' boys and their barefoot-pregnant sister-wives going to go?

AND THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY FANS LOVE NASCAR:

1> Chance to check out NASCAR team trailers for home improvement ideas.

No. I was suggesting that NASCAR is equivalent to human hamster racing.

And it is.

Pretty amusing that you consider me to be PC. You may be alone in the universe on that one.

But, I do recall that you referred/refer to Mexicans as "beaners." Yes, to me, that is an ethnic slur. You stated something along the lines of, "They don't mind." I then asked if you really believed that, go ahead and start saying that to Mexicans on the street that are not employed by you.

Did you do that?

ENDelt260
05-20-2005, 01:05 PM
Beaner's definitely a slur. But, depending on what part of town vailpass is in, he might get away with saying it to the first 10 Mexicans he saw. Say, if he lived next to a Home Depot... he's likely to run into 10 or 20 Mexicans before he finds one that speaks English.

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. Normally, I enjoy visiting CP and reading everyone’s takes on the day to day operations of the Kansas City Chiefs as well as other bits of news that funnel through this great country we call home.

I hate to give a bad first impression, but after reading through this thread and seeing this post, I could not let this reply slide without me giving my 2 cents.

To me, this reply is very narrow-minded and insensitive, as well as some others. I chose this one, because it has my blood boiling. I would like to know how could anyone say something such as this? It sounds as if he agrees with the racially insensitive comments that started this thread. It sounds as if he believes that ALL Black people are crooks and murders. I bet he believes that ALL Blacks have criminal records, been to jail, sell drugs, etc.

I would have you to know, Sir, that in fact all Blacks are not like that. Not ALL Blacks have criminal records, sell drugs, murder people, or even wear pants half way down the legs. Believe it or not, MOST Black people want what every other American Citizen wants: Good Jobs that are suited for their talents, nice homes in nice neighborhoods, and good schools for their children. And believe it or not, MOST Blacks are very good people.

With your comments, I believe people like YOU are the main ones calling for the end of programs like Affirmative Action. But what you fail to realize is Affirmative Action is in place because of people like YOU. It is people like YOU that deny a qualified minority a good job just because YOU don't feel like dealing with due to some inaccurate stereotype, it is people like YOU who don't let in a over-qualified young minority student into an Ivy League University but let in a barely-make-it-out-of-high-school legacy white student because his ole man is an old frat buddy, it is people like YOU who make it scary for minorities to move their families to predominately White neighborhoods, and it is people like YOU why racial profiling exist.

Your reply, along a few others on this thread, insults me as Black man. That Bad joke does not apply to me or any of my friends (Minority and White). I am a Husband, Father, and an Engineer who does not have a criminal record and I don't have a gold tooth and wear my pants sagging off my a**.

In closing, I'm not one that believes that Whites cause ALL of the problems that Blacks face in this country. We have a lot of troubles we bring upon ourselves, BUT people like ROYC75 don't help Blacks or other Minorities either. With narrow minded thoughts like the one he displayed earlier, it's people like him that impede progress for better race relations which in the long run impedes AMERICAN progress.

Do you consider Affirmative Action to be reverse discrimination?

It is infact reverse discrimination, BUT before you get too far ahead of youself, it is needed. Instead of just criticizing it too harshly, why don't you ask yourself, "Why is that law in place?" You do know that AA not only helps minorities, but it also helps ALL women. That law is in place because it is needed. I ask you, do some reseach into history and you will see why we needed it then and why we still need it now.

Racism and Sexism still exist, which is why we still need it.

Oh, I agree that it was needed. But, like many social engineering programs, it has become somewhat of a monster.

Sure they are. As you acknowledge, you seems to support a policy that is, by defintion, racist.

White people cannot suffer from racism, nor is there any such thing as discrimination against white people.
You see, white people are the majority and were never enslaved.

Top Ten Reasons that Rai ders fans like Nascar.

10. Oil slicks remind them of Al Davis.
9. Yellow flags mean something other than a 15-yard penalty against the Rai ders.
8. Cars move quickly and in circles, just like the Oakland franchise.
7. High-tech engines tend to block signals from home detention ankle bracelets
6. Expensive hubcaps that can be removed in 20 seconds.
5. Cars have governors, and governors have the power to stop prison executions.
4. They like any sport that involves men in pits.
3. Noise masks screams for help from people being stabbed.
2. Gasoline fumes

And the #1 reason why Rai der fans like Nascar...

1. A fourth-place finish is still pretty good in Nascar.

Come on, Man. He never mentioned any of this in his reply. He only said it was funny. Which it was. But had you read the top 10 list I posted, you would have seen that it is a two way street. The list poking fun of whitey for liking NASCAR was much funnier.

Obviously you missed the tail end of the reply. Here it is again:

That is some funny but true shit

The joke didn't piss me off. Actually the joke is worth a chuckle or two. It was the fact the He/She said "...but true shit.. That is what set me off. If that was left out, you would have not heard anything from me. Like I said, I think before I speak.

BTW, I won't call you a "C-bomb" because that shit ain't cool. Though I don't know who you are, you seem like a cool individual. You don't need soul to roll with me. As long as you are cool (good person), you are alright with me.

Don't worry, I'm not militant!!! I just like talking about sports...but I don't take shit either.

Certainly propping up one race or sex over another with crappy quota laws doesn't present itself as ammo for people who are going to be racist/sexist anyway.

Read these with an open mind and see if you still have the same opinion about it's necessity.

I do agree with you that racism still exists. It's not (often) overt a la "whites only" water fountains, but it definitely still exists.

That said, I've done numerous evaluations of governmental affirmative action programs in my job, and my concern about them is that they're helping the wrong group of people. The people who benefit the most from them are inevitably the women or minority people who already have the tools to succeed, rather than the ones who need help even getting into the game. The first group is better positioned to take advantage of it.

In other words, what I've seen is that it doesn't help at all the people who are trying to reach the first rung of the ladder of success, and it's most often used by folks who are moving from "successful" to "rich." That's inevitable in any type of preferential treatment program, not just affirmative action.

So how do you address racism and its impacts? Heck if I know, but I'd sure start by making sure that elementary and secondary schools all receive equal funding, and by doing everything possible to make sure that children receive the infrastructure and support that they need for learning. That's not a quick solution, but I think it's better in the long run than affirmative action, which often and unfairly stigmatizes success by minorities and women.

I don't think there is a racially offensive term for whites.

That's because (most) white people don't let it bother them. Every time someone says n*gger in a derogatory way, and a black person is hurt/offended by it, that black person is helping empower the word. The more you let a word offend you, the more power you give to the person using that word.

It's like someone calling me a "poopy head". Obviously, I would just laugh at something like that, so they try things like f*g or pussy.

I realize there is a lot of history associated with the word, but you don't have to carry that history like baggage.

I believe like any social program, the initial intentions are usually good but somehow it seems to snowball into something less desirable than its stated purpose.

Take the Farm Bill for example. Originally designed to help the small family farmer keep his farm away from the greedy bankers, the Farm Bill has proven to be nothing more than welfare for farmers.

Consequently the Farm Bill has hurt the small farmer, forcing them to sell to bigger outfits, or forcing them to lease their land.
