<quoted text>Oh, you sure have a lot of credibility calling blacks Negroes. Where's your white sheet?
And I also call whites caucasians.

What's your point?

Afro American is not accurate because many negroes straighten their hair.

African American is not accurate, because I know many caucasian African Americans from both Botswana and South Africa.

I do not consider "negro" a negative word. It is scientific nomenclature.

Why do you feel using the word "negro" is impolite, or racist?

You might not get offended by racial comments but others do. It bothers me when a black, white, hispanic, asian or any other race makes a racial comment. No race is better than any others. Yes, it's irritating when a negro uses the race card but in this case with the coach it wasn't that way. It was not a negro that came up with the allegations. And I don't think it's right for a negro to denigrade any race either. Why do you think I said something should of been done about the mayor of New Orleans. That comment he made was towards hispanics. And just what do you mean by "the pendulum is swinging back, because caucasians are sick of the negroe's excuse," what does it mean?
It's "denigrate" not 'denigrade."

I have thicker skin. I don't care what people call me; Unless they call me stupid or poor. Then it's "game on!"

Calling me a caucasian would be mostly correct, anyway. Using another word for caucasian is their choice, so I don't consider it an insult.

Look back and read what you all have said. Do you really think you are giving justice to the point you are trying to make? All of you are making a huge fuss about this. I am actually at this high school right now. I haven't heard a peep about this all day long.

Insulting one another or other people does nothing but make your point null and void. Before you choose to argue, make sure you can argue the other person's side as well as your own. Otherwise, you are effectively uniformed on the topic.
