    To be honest, I don't understand you. What do you think about this issue? Is the Latin word "negro " or" nigger "so much worse than the English word "black"? After all, both of these words mean the same color, and they are not an insult.

    Here in Russia, by the way, it is precisely that the word "black", expressed in relation to people, can be a real insult.

    Well, here in the States - we have a saying "Dont confuse me with the facts - I have made up my mind."

    Anotherwords some dont care what the facts are - they just want things done their way.

    It seems hard for you to live there? And you don't know what they'll put you in jail for. ))) It seems that the word is a purely scientific term, but it turned out to be "offended" a lot. )))

    Not hard to live here - I am used to it.
    In fact, I did three tours of duty with the US Army in Germany for a total of 8 1/2 years.
    Sometimes I felt, it would be hard to live there without the asserts of the US Army.
    When I was in Germany - I lived in US Base housing, bought groceries in the US Commissary and had to PX for all other things we needed.

    The reason for the confusion is probably because I was stating how the Progressive Leftists apply the term "racist," not how it should be applied.

    They can say and do all manner of things and get away with them, even praise each other for them, but let someone they dislike say or do the same things and they reveal their hypocrisy. Democrat is synonymous with hypocrite.

    By the way, when around blacks in America, it’s best not to use the Russian word for Negro, even when speaking Russian, since it’s virtually indistinguishable from “nigger.” The problem with using the latter term is cultural. Context is most important.

    To understand the “racism” narrative in America, one should know that there are entities bent on creating issues that will divide people. The Dem media works overtime trying to hype the least little incident. Many turn out to be hoaxes, but by the time they are exposed the damage has already been done.

    The truth is that America is one of the least racist nations in the world. However, there are many other reasons people can clash or show prejudice. When people of different races encounter such, the tendency is to attribute the issue to race instead of the real one. We sometimes call this "playing the race card."

    and that is a very thin line somethimes.

    Just like this virus thing.

    I call it the Chinesee Virus - some say that is racist. HOW? Chinesee is NOT a race!
    They (other Americans) call it Covid 19.

    Understood. As for COVID-19, “Communist Chinese Virus” or “CCP Virus” works better for me. :Wink
