Those that say that are liars. With all the different orgins and nationalities in the country, it is impossible not to say or think derogatory comments about someone the whole time you've been living. So you never had a derogatory comment about the killers responsible for 911, or how about any of the school shooters? How about the boston bombers? How about anyone who has commited a heinous crime against an innocent child?

No derogatory comments huh? I call Bullchit!
Those who DON'T stereo type people blame those RESPONSIBLE for the crime, not the race or origin.

Who called you a racist... I am not racist either and I'm not going to pretend I've never said something in a heated conversation that was questionable....After all I am human, and by no means perfect!

I met paula years back and she is a very kind hearted lady..it completely disgusts me that someone decided to wave the race card...just because they didn't like this woman? black people can use the "n" words in reference to each outher and its ok? but not if you are white? isn't that reverse raceism? where do we draw the line on people being so damn sensitive that they feel a 66 year old woman racially oppressed their people? grow up people...wipe the snot from your nose and stop being so damn whiny!

I really don't care if you believe me or not. I was raised to respect and treat everyone the same. I wasn't raised in a racist environment where that word was tossed around at dinner table conversations. I wasn't taught hate. And likewise, my children aren't taught it either. Nothing good will ever come from hate.
Again.. I'm not talking about a specific WORD... I'm talking about saying or thinking something that is considered a questionable comment made in the heat of an incident or conversation! If you have never done this, then you are a liar or non-human! Which is it?

Hummm...guess I'm non-human. I didn't mean a specific word either. I blame the criminal for the crime. I don't get worked up over something that I can't change...life's too short.

I was raised in the South but moved away many years ago. However, when we were kids we used the N word but did not know what it really meant. It was never intended to be a racial slur or a mean name for anyone. We just did not know. After I moved away and got older I came to understand what it stood for and from that day on I have never used the word again.However, it really ticks me off when people refer to people from the south as dumb uneducated toothless hillbillies. That is acceptable on tv all the time. Maybe we should all start raising a little stink about that. Black people call us crackers and honkeys all the time but we don't raise heck about it-I really don't give a hoot but it is ironic that the hillbilly word is used all the time. I am not a racist and I have many black friends but I don't understand why one group of people get so jacked out of shape over nothing. Paula Deen is a nice lady and I think it is really a shame that they are giving her such a bad time over nothing. These sponsors that are droppping her-well I am dropping them-k-mart snithfield hams and anyone else that pulls her name.

Nothing to do with stereotyping or profiling. Color me this.....If you were discussing the events of 911 and you mentioned all the terriorist were of muslim descent, you were in a sense being racist! Like it or not!

Don't know a Pearl. You assumed that I had never been out of the region. I replied.

How is saying that the terrorists were of Muslim decent anyway a racial slur? Now, calling them damn towel heads would be...and I heard a lot of that coming from most in this town. People get angry, and instead of going after those responsible, they hold the whole group responsible. Now, that isn't fair is it? There are innocence in all groups. For instance, I'm a white American mother. If you hear on the news that the same type of woman killed her baby in the bathtub, does that mean that we are all baby killers?

Would you feel the same if blacks kept whites as slaves instead of the other way around? Would you feel the same if it were the whites that could not attend black schools or drink from the same fountain? We can't erase what our ancestors did...and they sure have not forgotten it. There are still people alive who remember those times...not the slavery of course, but all of the other bad things we did.

It is not a racial slur but it is showing racism, because you are associating that particular group of people to the act of terriorism! ie... There is no need to reference their ethnicity when discussing that event, if one does, then they are using their race in a derogatory fashion!

I agree 100%. My point was that people used that word and never knew what it meant. I cannot change what happened with our ancestors-I wish I could but impossible. Paula used the word 30 years ago. Yes it was wrong but I don't think it warrants all the bad publicity that has come from it. Sadly there are people on here that are totally racist and you will never be able to change them. I try to respect everyone regardless of who they are race, religion or whatever. We are all the same.

So, you're saying that if you use religious origin, it is a form of racism? No, because racism deals with differences of races, not religion. You're mommas a ho...well you're mommas of Muslim decent. I don't think that they'd be offended by that, lol.
