Behaviour has EVERYTHING to do with it, and YOU should know out of all people. "INdividual," an individual means that they see things differently from YOU. And, YOU HAVE to accept that. YOU may disagree, I may disagree. But, you still have to accept it. Don't abuse, don't belittle, and don't elevate one's self. YOu do not know if these "people" want YOUR sympathy or anything else from YOU. That is an assumption YOU are making. If one is pro individual, then one has to manage their projections. So, that they don't assume the other is thinking, wishing, or is what you would either be or think that they be.
Perhaps AMerica needs to circulate educational material regarding "how to live in a democracy without taking another's away." and, how to stop that specific CYCLE.
I try to focus on MY behaviour not someelses unless I am defending myself or I am provoked. Otherwise I focus on my own self-improvement first.
correction: how to stop that (hate) specific CYCLE...

I bet the Food network brass and the Smithfield Ham people have used a few derogatory words, too. Every racial group has a not-so-nice word, from dago to mick to kike. Do we believe no one at those businesses never used one of the words, besides the n word? Hypocrites!
Deen used the word years ago, and not since. She sincerely apologized. What's wrong with big corporations?

Deen should take responsibility for her actions. It has always been the case in history that someone had to face repercussions when previously everyone got a way with it.

that is not excuse, it's time now for her to take that responsibility and then all ahead of her can expect the same....it has to start somewhere and with someone.

The Chinese bought Smithfield, no loss to Paula there. I had already decided to boycott them, so good riddance.

I forgot about the Chinese sale. You are right. I wouldn't buy any more of their hams anyway.

"There is no such thing as "monolithic groups of people". Every single person on the planet is an individual."
You got that right.
My example revolves around the fact that we have to be extra careful in how we adresses Blacks, as opposed to everyone else, much in the same way we have to conscientious around retarded or handicapped people etc. In other words you get special treatment because folks feel sorry for you. They afraid to say anyting that akcnowledges the fact that you're Black(of any skin tone). I think that is a sad state of affairs which you all like to use to your advantage.
And you are very dense if you think that folks despise you just because of your skin tone. Different behaviour and values, don't have anything to do with it, right?
Dude, you couldn't tie my shoes. Now stop babbling. You're a racist uneducated idiot. Different behaviour? Hahaha. And I do know who you are. Chump! Only racist old whites think skin tone decides behavior and values. Deluded! You're still outmatched here, move along.

Most white men seem to know that they will be held accountable for the racist things they say in public and avoid it but I am so sick of white women like Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Paula Deen, Kelly Tilghman the white announcer who said Tiger should be lynched, and that C-nt who yelled in President Obama's face, saying all kinds, suddenly pulling the white women's card.

Look, Deen wanted blacks dressed as slaves. Slavery, is not some cute, kind, beautiful time for blacks. Yet, this public figure Paula Deen thought it would be cute to have the descendants of this crime reenact what their ancestors went through for her amusement.

Dig that.

What about 9-11?

How would you feel about Arabs wanting a wedding with whites dressed as Twin Tower victims with burned clothing, etc serving them at a muslin wedding?

Would that sit well with you?

Outmatched?? Lol. You must really hate the come downs from your crack high, when reality finally sets in, and you find your mom yelling at you because you have taken a shower in five days. Anyway, It's not the the skin tone we look at, it's the behaviour of certain knuckleheads walking around with their pants hanging off their asses, being rude and indiscreet, slanging drugs and what not who happen to be Black. Understand?

So, now I understand you projections, you keep telling me that i'm displacing my anger or whatever onto you.

So, this is how your life started out? Get some therapy so you can live happily and responsibly in a democratic country. K?

you don't lump "certain knuckleheads" into a group. That's generalising and pigeon-holing a group, race, etc.

Understand?

The N word is used all the time by Black rappers. Blacks are being silly now. It is a word. It is centuries old. We have freedom of speech, perhaps not for long under the Emperor, but we still have it today. All this furor has done is create a surge of sales of Paula Deen cookbook. Americans aren't going to allow Ms Deen to be racially attacked, and not fight back.

As soon as these rappers stop using the N word in their so called "music"..then they can make a fuss about the rest of us.
