CNN namby pamby excuses irritate me!

This ridiculous article is an outrage. Where was this person when everyone was making big over the "n" word? Probably yelling about how any use of it by whites was verbotten. Let's compare some of what he's said and make substitution to show his Liberal hypocrisy.

"she testified a "creepy-*** cracker" was following him. There is nothing
illegal about that. Jeantel said she didn't even know it was a racial
slur, and numerous commentators have noted that some in Florida use the
term in a non-derogatory, colloquial sense."

Uh, they also used the "n" word when I grew up in a non-derogatory and colloquial sense, where it wasn't the use of the word but the how it was used which made the difference. I never heard any Liberals make that argument recognizing that about the "n" word, even though they were often told that in the 60's and even into the 70's.

"Initially, cracker was not a pejorative term, but Ferris says it has
become one, the equivalent of redneck. Its meaning and intensity as an
insult depends on who is saying it and who is listening."

Well, initially neither was the "n" word. The French in New Orleans used French word for black which was nigre, same as they use it today and also for comparison let's look at the word tigre, which we call "tiger" in English. What happened to the word "tigre"? It morphed in American use to "tigger" and one example is it's use in the Pooh series of books. Guess what happened to the word nigre? Same thing. Just that simple. So, how did the "n" word get such a horrible reputation? Association, typically with added negative qualifiers to the word, so that eventually the word increasingly fell out of favor among those who felt it had become an impolite word, if not completely out of use. Were they ashamed of the word, or of it's association? Trying to get that truth is like trying to get any truth from a Liberal.

And now we see the "coup de grace" of reason in this next part.

In the circumstances
described in court, Ferris notes, it was more likely a quick way for
Martin to say he was in danger. "If it is used by blacks (among
themselves), it is usually with one meaning: Watch out. He didn't say it
to Zimmerman. He said it to convey a message to a friend. He said,
'trouble is coming.'"

Well, let's turn it around and have him justify something similar.

"In the circumstances described in court, this reporter notes, use of the "n" word was more likely a quick way for Zimmerman to say he was in danger. "If it is used by whites (among themselves), it is usually with one meaning. Watch Out! Zimmerman didn't say it to the person who shot him. He said it to convey a message to the white officer on the phone, he was saying "trouble is coming. "

These CNN reporters just stumble all over themselves due to their Liberal foolishness.

I haven't seen it widely published but this same

witness also claimed TM used the "n" word in reference to GZ. Perhaps that's just part of normal conversation among some people. "Polite" folks will also be set back on their heels when hearing the number of times the "f" word or "m-effer" is randomly interjected into nearly every sentence. One could get the feeling these people use such offensive language so often that it's considered to be normal and that anyone who doesn't speak that way is a bit "off". It's no wonder that people who find such conversation to be crude and offensive want nothing to do with those with whom they cannot have conversation.

As for the word "cracker", you're right that there are various opinions as to where it came from and what it means. I posted some of these, one of which had to do with alcohol consumption. Perhaps a Georgia "cracker" is also one known to "crack" open a bottle...sometimes called "cracking corn" at the end of a long day. It also refers to humor.

Have you researched Idaho real estate yet?

Move there and you and your new white supremacist friends can use the N word all day long. That way you won't have to limit your use of it to the privacy of your house or deal with all those nasty liberals disapproving of your racism.

So, I take it you approve
by James Denison / July 11, 2013 12:44 AM PDT

of the reporter's view and support the use of such language among an ethnic group against whites as OK in your book? You should stand proud in all your liberalness and write a letter to the editor praising the reporter. Oh, and I'd like to extend an offer to you to move to inner city Detroit.

I'm not commenting on the article
by Josh K / July 11, 2013 12:47 AM PDT

Only on your preoccupations with race.

I wonder what Jesus would think of your prejudices.

I didn't even have race on my mind
by James Denison / July 11, 2013 12:50 AM PDT

until I read that Liberal racist article. Look to your own.

Of course not
by Josh K / July 11, 2013 3:35 AM PDT

You start a thread about the unfairness of you not being able to use the N word but you didn't have race on your mind.


Still trying to picture Jesus using that word, or thinking he was superior to anyone because of the color of his skin.....

As usual for Liberals
by James Denison / July 11, 2013 5:16 AM PDT
In reply to: Of course not

you missed the point. It was Liberal Hypocrisy that was on my mind. I stopped by CNN to see what updates they had on the Zimmerman case. Instead I ran across that insulting article, which as I already noted was a liberal going on to justify racism. You know that.
