    Where's ALL the rage? Where's all the anger?

    Following the Wisconsin defeat of Kentucky, a black player called a white Kentucky player the infamous, ghastly, horror of horrors "N" word and though he later apologized to the other kid, it was something that had it been a white player calling a black player that word, it would be ALL over the news .... Rev Al and even Obama would want the kid chastised, maybe even kicked off the team and 'black-balled' (no pun intended) from having a future in Basketball. In fact the coach would probably be under fire too, and Holder would already be in Indiana investigating possible discrimination and racist undertones on Kentucky's team and at the school.

    Sure that sounds a bit overboard, and maybe somewhat exaggerated; but you must admit had it been the other way it be all over the news.

    This is what's wrong with America today. Everyone seems over sensitive and ready to fight and protest wrongs at the drop of a hat, and that is how ridiculous we've all become.

    Even members on this board look to jump on other members for saying something unexceptaeble, well at least unexceptable in their small minded view of the world according to them. A world that sees them walking around with a racial chip on their shoulder.

    Well, what are you thoughts on this? Would it have been career ending if the person using that racist term had been white directing his slur to a black and not vice versa as it actually happened?

    There you go again trying to intimate that black people are violent and angry.

    They've squashed it as heat of the moment basketball trash talk. So why are we talking about it? Oh wait, you've got to try and make a point about your perceived double standard. Miss Black America Pageant and all. :rolleyes:

    And here we have it. The real reason you're mentioning this story is so you could try to make another point about Obama and the racial divide.

    Yep but you just keep right on going.

    Stop trying to inject some sort of moral relevance in a too late attempt to make folks think you're really concerned about this when your real reason for making ANOTHER one of these threads is to vent your anger about Obama and black people and their evil ways.

    UNACCEPTABLE

    Do you understand that you are making a bigger deal about this than Kaminski who was on the receiving end of this? They've already talked on the phone and it really wasn't a big deal to either of them afterwards.

    Do you honestly think that word was used out of racist hate for Kaminski? You know full well that the term used in that context isn't coming from a position of power to hold down white people so let's not act like this is the same.

    Now I do think it is inappropriate and tacky to use the term but the two squashed the issue like men and don't need or want you to make a national issue out of it.

    Black people have taken ownership of a term that was used to denigrate them for years and while I don't particularly enjoy the celebration of the word and transition into casual slang, I understand that context matters at times when used among that particular culture.

    If there were to be some BB metric of threads that viewed black people in a positive light vs. threads that viewed them in a negative light; I think it might make us all very uncomfortable...or maybe not knowing the people that post in here.

    Your bias is showing again.

    This the first I've heard about it

    Bottom line

    If its wrong - its WRONG!

    Proper race relations means never having to say you are sorry.

    Why should anyone apologise for something that they are personally not responsible for?

    Especially since it won't be enough.

    Remember, Zaac, as much a part of a racist noise machine as anyone I have ever met, has said the only way to be forgiven for our original sin of slavery is to subject ourselves to lectures, one sided conversations, and perpetual groveling.


    And my ancestors, on both sides, fought for Lincoln.

    I am not surprised that so many on the BB do not know there is a difference in the meaning of the "N" word in the white community vs. the black community.

    This is not surprising to me for those folk who live outside the South. I am a bit surprised that no one from the South has not mentioned this before.

    It was said in a moment of great disappointment. If he had called me that word at that moment I would have laughed knowing his real meaning.

    I was. Watching Kentucky go down was highly entertaining. Hopefully the Badgers finish off the Dukies tonight.

    Well? There you go again, like your hero, Zero Obama, jumping to a wrong conclusion!

    I am not claiming or intimating that black people are "ANGRY!" I merely asked where the anger and outrage were over this young man's slip of the tongue. I doubt, from what I read, that he was "angry" when he said it, in fact, it sounded, per him, that it was said in jest! :smilewinkgrin:

    Thank you Rolf...I agree with you, and I've been saying this for ages. I, personally, never owned a slave. I personally think slavery is disgusting and appalling. And even my ancestors, who came to America in the early 1900's (legally, mind you) did not condone slavery or the hiring or ownership of slaves.

    So, like you, I have nothing to apologize for.

    However, if Zaac wants an apology from the government, it is not coming, any more than the apologies owed to Officer Wilson for Obama and his administration jumping to conclusions that cost him a career in law enforcement.
