Reply to "Teacher suspended for ten days, after calling student Nigga!"

3) ...everytime the word "nigga" is used by a white person, it is meant in a racist fashion. This is despite their own use of the word, infering that despite civil rights movements, the colour of your skin does matter as far as objective treatment in concerned.
JACO, know the hell you're talking about before you open your mouth.

Again, THE INTENT or "how it is meant" coming from a White person is IRRELEVANT!!!

Second, Black people use of the term has nothing to do with how Black people should regard White people's use of it. There is NO SITUATION (or a very .0000001% few) where a White person can say the word and it not be inherently problematic.

As they say, Black people use it AMONGST THEMSELVES as a term of endearment/affection. Simply put, White people (most if not all) just aren't and can't be in those circles of endearment/affection. The TEACHER definitely wasn't.
quote:
Dawson... used the slang version to feel more comfortable with black students.
Obviously he had neither earned nor was he privy to those circles of endearment/affection. Given that, without those bona fides, he had no place or reason. Given that, you have no place and no reason to think there is some way for a White person, hell any White person, can or should be so privileged as to have equal access and equal use of such terms of "endearment/affection", much less this teacher.

So, once again... The Teacher is not the PEER of the student. Therefore the type of affection/endearment, by definition, cannot be the same. So there is no way for the use to be the same.

Also, those bonds of affection/endearment are AUTHENTIC. Not artificial. For the teacher to try to "relate" or "speak the language" of his BLACK STUDENTS (i.e. RACIALIZED focused), he is admitting that his connection or desire to connect (since you endow him with that intent which makes no sense, unless you're openly saying that it was "RACIST" in nature, because it was clearly RACIALIZED)... his desire to connect is ARTIFICIAL - i.e. not a natural, organic progression from an actual relationship and intimacy that grants those endearing privileges.

Now, onto the CIVIL RIGHTS confusion of yours...

First, don't you ever fix your mouth... don't you ever place yourself as The Interpreter and Authority on what the Civil Rights Movement was about and what it is suppose to mean to Black people.

And please illustrate how being able to call some one "Ni@@a" is a Civil Rights issue? I mean seriously? How does this relate?

What is the "OBJECTIVE TREATMENT" in this whole WHITES CAN'T SAY THE N-WORD thingy that amounts to anything worth mentioning in the same conversation as the Civil Rights Movement?

Seriously? What Civil Right is being violated when we say WHITES CAN'T and BETTER NOT SAY THE N-WORD?

What is the harsh, unfair and DISADVANTAGING treatment that's being visited/imposed on Whites by making the N-Word off limits?

If you don't have a serious, logical, reasoned and functional answer for that then you better think about the BS you say before you let it come out your mouth. That's the problem with your silly ABSTRACT, idiotic "Bigotry is Bigotry" type of thinking. It is flawed and fallacious to it's core.
quote:
I'll admit that there are differences between the two...
And, FYI, it matters not what you are willing to admit. No validation or acknowledgement was requested much less needed from you for me to know and be certain that there are clear, objective and meaningful DIFFERENCES between two things you tried to group into one little idiotic (and inappropriate) little catch-term.

quote:
(To forestall argument, those who have been wrongfully treated deserve compensation, etc etc but this is true of all peoples, the situation simply occurs frequently among blacks. Skin colour is not a deciding factor at all)
And what the FUCK was this? Stay on topic, deal with what is said and what is being contended with or STFU!!!
(That's SHUT THE FUCK UP... in case you didn't know.)

But while you're talking, let's get to the nitty gritty. What is the OBJECTIVE WRONG being done to Whites? How are Whites HARMED by not being able to say the "N-Word"?

Look up, become acquainted with, go to bed and sleep with the knowledge of what the FALLACY OF EQUIVOCATION is. At every turn, with your play on the idea of Bigotry and your evoking of the Civil Rights Movement... at every turn you have turned logic on its head, perverted the very meaning of the terms -- and, in fact, implied DIFFERENT and incompatible meanings for Black ["Bigotry" vs. White BIGOTRY and the DISCRIMINATION or Objective, Unfair and HARMFUL/DISADVANTAGING "Treatment" Against Whites vs. the clear history of measureable, significant and profound, material Racial Discrimination Against Africans/African-Americans.

You have tried to pawn off some idiotic SLEIGHT OF HAND LOGIC via abstractions even when you know the profound and fundamental DIFFERENCES...

But, go ahead... Tell us all:
HOW ARE WHITES HARMED BY NOT BEING ABLE TO SAY "NIGGER"?

If an official U.S. law was made that banned the N-Word and made it something that only Whites had to abide by (not saying it)... HOW WOULD WHITES BE HARMED??
