It's absurd, but the more-liberal-than-thou crowd need fodder to further their ambitions and agendas. Let Black Americans have-their-say on this, it isn't your place to judge this man you rich, lily-white assholes. His career should not be affected, but we aren't a tolerant nation in a lot of cases. He has my support in this incident, but as we all know, he attended the lynching of a Black man afterwards. This is fucking ridiculous when thousands of Iraqis are being murdered by the Bush administration and much of Congress right-now. Not 160-years-ago, now.
Yes indeed, I have used the word nigger in-anger myself, and it shocked and surprised me. I felt ashamed, but should one be ashamed forever about it? No. Do I hate Black Americans? No, I like them better than so-called White America--they've done little to hurt my life. It was wrong, but there it is, not a high-crime like lying about WMDs to get us into a phony war. How about trying to understand why people say such things? You know, an open-dialog? Oh, that would disempower those with a questionable agenda. Welcome to America, home of the pseudo-liberal (you're a joke). Meanwhile, the media gets-rich on your stupidity (like that's new). Want fries with that?
