[split] PSA: Hate Speech (discussion of video etc)

You gonna whine about reverse racism because you can't say the n-word? Really? Somehow I don't think you'd carry that same energy out in the real world, which makes you a coward. Btw black people don't get offended by the n-word, most black people WISH someone like you would feel comfortable enough to say it. Wink

I'd get arrested if I assaulted someone for calling me names. When it's OK for half a dozen guys to beat up one guy for calling them a name that hurts their feelings, I call that privilege. I think that privilege should be checked. That was a real 'brave' bunch of guys that beat up that one guy. I think that they were cowards whose numbers gave them courage.
 
I don't like that white guy's racism. But I think that it is also racism when black people get a free pass to assault people for calling them names, when none of the rest of us can assault anyone for calling us names. If it had been a black guy getting beat up after calling some white guys names, it would just be so horribly racist.

I am opposed to the one way street. I think that black racism is just as bad as white racism. We all need to knock it off.

I want to clarify that I liked the sentiment of Huggy's post, as I am an angry person about racist dumbasses too, but I too disagree with jumping a guy over it.

And stupid fucking people wonder why they shouldn't use that word.

How do you know they got a 'free pass'?

What makes you so sure they'd "get a pass" and not be prosecuted if the dude decided to press charges?
There's video evidence.

If it had been a black guy getting beat up after calling some white guys names, it would just be so horribly racist. It would have been a big national news story. So yeah, these guys in the video are getting a free pass. People are only outraged when white guys beat up black guys because that's a big racist meme. The black guys beating up the white guy don't register on our silly meme oriented minds, so they can post several guys beating up one guy on the internet and no one thinks that there is anything wrong with that because it didn't trigger our thilly meme oriented worldview.

Someone that Lady doesn't like is engaging others in discussions, so she is trolling them. This place is really fucked up.
