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

 His music is banned from my house. I do not allow my children to sing it. I do not allow them to view his videos on Youtube. When it comes on the radio, I change it. I will not support a man who does, or once did, believe it is ok to wish harm on American soldiers... or ANY soldier for that matter!

And look at him now... taking the stage on AMERICAN Idol...

Sickening...

MY POINT EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It barely even made news! But Paula Dean's career is ruined because of something she said IN THE PAST!


"In one performance, he smashed a model of a US-made Bradley Fighting Vehicle on stage. Two years later, he reprised a metal number, “Dear American,” which called for the killing of US soldiers and their families."

Really? I didn't hear that about Psy


Quoting working-girl:


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!

Me either. I thought it was mainly N. Koreans that hate Americans? Psy is from S. Korea and for someone whodupposedly hates Americans seemed pretty cozy doing Hammer Time at the Grammy's with MC Hammer.

 Ummmmm.... Would YOU bite the hand that feeds you?????????????????????????

Despite what he said in the past, he is making $$$$ of us American's. So why WOULDN'T he get cozy with MC Hammer?

I guess the better question to ask here is WHY would the awards show producers even invite such a person ONTO their stage??????????

No, women have also been oppressed since forever, and so women are entitled to special rules that men aren't.  We get our own free clinics, free legal aid, affirmative action laws, etc.  I'm just saying that as a white person I don't have the right to question any special treatment or exceptions that apply to any minorities because I can never know what it's like to be a race that has been oppressed for centuries.

I have actually been told by a black person that she couldn't be racist. Only white people can. The definition of racism is not when a white person discriminates against (insert race here).
Quoting LizzieAnnesMom:

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

I don't pay attention to it, as it don't hold no weight when it comes to term RACISM anymore.

I never knew that we could. In that case. I'm off to call some Asians, chinks and some white guys, crackers. Then I'll sing "can't touch this" and run away

So white people have never been oppressed? White people have been slaves and oppressed. Do your research.
