I think they're both interesting...but regarding the supposed honesty of oral traditions, the story may be more complex... I once saw this documentary about an oral society. It was a long time ago and I don't remember many of the details but one thing that struck me was that there were "official" oral histories and historians in the culture and if someone - a ruler say - fell into disfavor, this person would simply be purged from the official account and hence from collective memory.

Re: Radio Host Fired for Using Racial Epithet to Describe Condi Rice

Yeah, I am not sure if this is a fireable offense. I censure, reprimand, may be needed, but termination? That said, I do think that the word "coon" is part of his vocabulary that he uses in private or in confidence with others. Otherwise, it would not have been so "ready to hand" for his mouth to utter. It is not that common of a saying for one, and psychologically the context in which it arose is revealing.

Black Viking ·
I doubt he would have been fired if he had been speaking about Black folks in general. But, he was talking about Condi. Even concervatives would be up in arms about that. Condi's not a "coon". She represents "equality" in America. She's not like "the rest of them". She's a walking, talking example that there is no more racism in America. Right? Right... This story reminds me of how Howard Cosel was fired for saying "Look at that monkey run!" on the air during a football game.

Again, Rowe, I'm speaking from within the context of traditional southern society... in which a passing greeting even between men and women is not seen as an occasion for enticing a date... it was expected behavior... a matter of good manners like saying 'excuse me' when you sneeze... When I was growing up, failure to observe the custom was something people noticed... My mother would reprimand me for not 'speaking'...

Re: Sistas, what's up with....

Rowe ·
Then the the only reasonable explanation that we can deduce (based on your observation) is that Black women in Athens, GA lack manners. They require special training in social etiquette and Georgia customs. I'm also curious as to why if your mother, who I'm assuming is a southern woman, passed these great customs onto you, why didn't other Black mothers residing in southern areas pass these same customs onto their Black daughters?
