Ok all I can say is wow. In this day and age, where I'm from if you say a racial epithet you get beat up, period. And I think that's how it should be; minorities have been called derogatory terms by white people for waaaaay too long and I'm glad people don't think they just have to sit and take it anymore. The time when it was okay for white people to say the N-word is gone, and thank God.
And as for organizations to help minorities further their education, those were started because they were getting treated so differently than their white peers. THAT'S why they're not considered racist. And that's why you don't see organizations like them for white kids. White people can't say white power and black people can say black power because of the horrible things white people did to black people. It's not equal now because it wasn't equal from the beginning of American history. So thank your ancestors for that.
And the size of the tomatoes being thrown at Mychal Bell and his friends? If someone threw a tomato at you because of your race (or for any other reason) would you say, "Well, it was only a cherry tomato" or "It was just a diced tomato" and be okay with it?? If someone throws a tomato at me I'm not just gonna sit there and take it; any self-respecting person would do something about it.
If you look at these comments or wrote one and don't think there's anything wrong with what these people said, maybe you should rethink what it means to be racist.
News flash--has it occured to you that these punks might be lying? Do you think any white kid in his right mind would be making racial slurs when he's outnumbered six to one? This is just another example of blacks trying to hide behind racism to avoid being punished for a crime they commit.
