racism.

How come if a Caucasian person says anything about another race they are considered bigots or racist but if other races say something about the Caucasians they are just speaking out for the good of their race? I'm not trying to be stupid but I just wondered...

  • Double standard, same situation applies when a guy screws around, he is a cool dog and there is no nasty name calling for him but if a a woman does the same thing, she is a slut or whore...

    No one likes bigots, except bigots themselves. Truthfully the people who are discriminated against the most, are the overweight and the mentally disabled, not those who complain the most...

  • It is the "wonderful" double standard. If your white you have to hold your tounge. Any other race can say whatever whenever.
    I too never understood the whole for example blacks calling each other the "n" word and it is ok. It is NOT ok it is still racist.

  • cause Caucasians were the "masters" of slavery here in america and so whenever they say something derogatory its something more hateful but  if a minority says something about them  its just "payback"  and as for the comment saying that "and i also wonder why certain races can call each other racist words and its fine but if another race says it to them they are all offended" that is because if I as a black person calls u a cracker u would get offended right? but if another white person says cracker it would be funny same as nigga- (even though i don't like the word nigger whether it is said by a black or white person either way it is ignorant and derogatory but it holds more hate and anger when said by another race than when its said by the same race

  • This again? You aren't considered racist for discussing race, what is it that you are SAYING?


    As for the N-Word, WHY would you WANT to say it?? I am white and I don't know what it is like to grow up being black in america so it isn't my business if some choose to OWN that word that was USED against them as a weapon for so long....


    I was raised that the N-Word was a no no, a bad word, it isn't that hard to NOT say it....
