Why are minorities exempt?

Posted by   + Show Post
Is it just ok for minorities to use racial slurs? Seriously, I personally am beginning to get offended by the standard.

With light and love

Whites are the real minorities in this world. There are more people of color in the world than there are whites. Nobody is exempt from using nasty racial slurs. People can say whatever they want to say we unfortunately cannot control speech.

I agree.

A black person can call me a cracker but I can't say Nigger or Nigga unless I'm Black.

Paula Dean is being punished for off the cuff comments she made 30 years ago.. yet Psy has made it public that he hates ALL Americans, and laughs all the way to the bank because American's are supporting his music career.

This country is all kinds of fucked up! The double standard makes me want to puke!

Because apparently they cant be racist. Only white people can be racist.

because some white people did some bad things over a hundred years ago so now we must persecute the ones that dont even have anything to do with it and make sure they get low priority on jobs now and no freedom of speech

I disagree, the only racial slur that carries any more weight than others is the N word. Yet it's ok for a Hispanic to say weda or honky but not ok for a white to say border hopper or beaner... That's a double standard.

Quoting Mcelly:

Yes they are, because whatever racial slurs they use dont't have the history of hate that slurs used by whites have.
