A friend's neighbor was talking to her cousin. Cousin was telling her about remodeling her bathroom. Said she was going to have a shade put over her skylight to keep the drones from seeing her on the toilet, etc.

I would guess the vast majority of people at least 50 and under would agree. Even black kids.

Growing up, it was "catch a tiger" at school. Everywhere else, you heard the other version. I still think the law suit was without merit and glad they lost.

I think edog is, though. He'll deny it up and down though.
And why would you think this? Not that I care one bit what you think of me, I just want to see if you can back it up.

I think it's Brazil nuts. An older guy at my last office used that phrase - someone sent some mixed nuts for the holidays - and it did not go well for him.

Well, one right would have been the state to recognize their relationship with their significant other in a ceremony called marriage. Thankfully, that's been taken care of now in Illinois.

Yes, they sued the airline (anyone can sue for anything, getting sued doesn't mean squat), and they lost, and the attendant was not fired.

Yeah but the Disney worker was,

and while looking for that story, I found a Southwest Airline worker who was for the exact same thing.

Where's everywhere else? from who? Other than at school or playing with other school kids after school, where and when were people singing this rhyme in any form? Guess I just did not grow up around open racists.

What you cant seem to understand is that to say "I cant" is offensive to me! Frankly I am offended when I hear is said in public by black people, the very same black people who would get "offended" if I were to say it. To me that is ludicrous, and no matter how much I can intellectually agree that if I say it, they will perceive it as racism, I cannot support the idea that only "They" can use the word.

And never ask me to respect anyone who does support that, because it means they are not about unifying our peoples, but instead trying to divide us.

What you seem to not understand is the "can't" means "can't do it without offense to a number of people". You can do anything. You can even kill a person. You can break any law you want. You can break any societal norm or convention. No one can control your actions but you have to take the consequences.
Go for it.
You likening someone believing to not offend Muslims to agreeing with everything Muslim is equal to people who are against abortion who agree with killing doctors who perform abortions.
It's very vile thinking to me.

didn't you say the photographer was at Disney with saying that Monkey thing? Sounds like a different instance. Or perhaps an urban legend? It might not have read carefully, though. Wondering is all.

I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago where 80% of the people moved from the south side of Chicago. There was A LOT of racism.

Wrong again azzhat. Your one one defending the rights of blacks to say it, not me. I am just saying that in a free society all people have access to all the words, there are no reserved words.

You however want to restrict who gets to use what words.

Um, how about the very right that Angela raised - marriage. It is not legal in approximately 40 states.

Settle down, Sparky, it still has to pass the house. And I'm unaware that marriage was a "right," also, there's nothing stopping a gay man from legally marrying a woman.
