Even if you were black, and you weren't just spewing more white privilege "irony," - white people accused of racism are the _real_ victims in American history, after all - your use of the slur "Jap" would be racist.

But you weren't aware of that. You really don't even know when you're being racist.

You need to learn the difference between being a racist and being a bigot. The comment I made was bigoted, not racist.

Rare is the bigot that is not racist? Two sides of the same coin.

Jesus, you're really scary.

Hey cretin, "Japanese" constitutes a race. You were using a racist slur.

No one will argue with your admission that you're a bigot.

Both bigotry and racism, when you can even tell them apart according to some neo Nazi playbook, are odious.

As I said, you aren't a minimally self aware creature. Actually pre conscious. We should factory farm people like you for soylent green or for rice patty fertilizer.

JAPANESE....adjective 1. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of Japan , its people, or their language . noun 2. a native or inhabitant of Japan . 3. a person of Japanese ancestry

Jap is an English abbreviation of the word "Japanese." Today it is generally regarded as an ethnic slur, although English-speaking countries differ in the degree

No kidding, you drunk?

Yeah, whether it is considered a racist slur depends on whether you're talking to a right wing cretin who wants to make some kind of big deal that a particular slur is not racist but is merely bigoted. Nutty.

The only difference in how the slur is taken depends on how racist the particular, US audience you're considering is. It's a racist slur.

At no point did I claim superiority. The post was intended as a helpful suggestion. I just used an abbreviation, you're the one who played "The Card".

Geesh, are all you libtards Topix race cops? I thought you were into the spelling/grammar beat. Tell you what. Stick it where the sun doesn't shine, along with your socialism and lack of ethics. And everything else you "stand" for.
