  • It's insulting... Just like when Al Sharpton said,


     "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house" and referring to Jews as "diamond merchants." ~Sharpton Calls For a Boycott Of Classes". Newsday. p. 5.(1991)


    Alas, Sharpton and others like him get a free pass...

  • I don't know who you associate with. But racism is racism, it does not matter where it comes from.

  • Not fair..... It happens.

    I just ignore it as childish BULLSHIT.

    It'd also be nice if blacks didn't call themselves or other black those names!

  • I don't think anyone of any race should expect or accept being called names. However, when I am (not saying what race I am), I simply ignore the person's ignorance whenever possible. Because that's really what it is, ignorance that I do not have time or energy to become entangled in. There are so many other things going on in life, I refuse to allow a single person's ignorance to dominate a single moment of my existence.

  • No, not fair. It was also not fair when Blacks were slaves and were beaten, raped and abused. You are right some things are not fair.
