    He just says that stuff to be funny, at the same time he makes some very good and valid points about how blacks oppress themselves.

    I know there is a difference..I never claimed the guy who said it was a racist, and I'm certain Wiz didn't either. My objection is his word choice, which was wrong. The word ****** has been a nasty word to use on a PERSON of the opposite color since it was first said. It depreciates the person....as does mother ******. Why don't we start using that word as well. It has no meaning I guess.

    Perhaps it would be more beneficial to suggest everyone live as me and my neighbors do, and not make more of it than what it is.
    Instead of trying to convince everyone that only monsters use those words.
    My neighborhood is pretty peaceful and we have fun together and help each other.


    I mean, when you get right down to it, ****** just means black person, just like cracker just means white person.
    The nigga words means nothing today, they use it with each other all the time.

    Both are derrogrotory terms used to deride an individual based on the color of their skin.

    To me, it means black and white.

    I mean, my name is Sissy.
    That term can have a lot of different meanings.
    I don't get upset over the term being said out loud.
    Life is a whole lot more peaceful that way.
    Everyone should try it, and stop raising a stink about every little thing as if society if going to fall apart over such trivial things.

    One could argue that your use of the word 'ghetto' is racist.
    But I sure ain't gonna waste my time worrying about it.

    Or you are just over reacting and won't allow the word to mean anything other than a meaning of your choice.
    There are lots of folks that don't choose to restrict it's meaning as much as you do.
    You can remove the sting of the word without removing the word itself.
    My neighborhood does that.
    We use all the idioms - tar baby, jigaboo, blackie, etc.
    We completely remove the sting.
    And we make fun of folks that go berserk over such things.

    It's a matter of intent. It can be a descriptive, an insult, or a term of endearment.

    Women are called lots of names, as are men. Are we going to whine and cry over names?

    Yes, I know....the libs will whine and cry over anything. They get such hurt feelings.
