Glad to see Stormfront members are taking Zimmerman case well.i guess they dont care that zimmerman is ethnically half-hispanic…
Well you’re talking about Stormfront. These are not the most rational (or smartest) people. In their minds, it doesn’t matter as long as long as he got another black male teen off the streets.
So, I’m a little late on this, but I thought I would just throw in my two cents, especially since its been awhile since I have “tumblred”.
Apparently, the muslims, (and I say this with the utmost respect) are offended by Jabba. He is obviously a muslim terrorist.
Really. The “Turkish Cultural Community of Austria,” says, “the toy effervesces racist, anti-Muslim bigotry. What are Lego recommending parents buy as a Christmas gift? The answer is pure racism.”
I have two issues with that statement. One being, last I check, Muslims were a group of religious people, not a race. Therefore, a muslim can be white, black, asian, etc. Secondly, has anyone, ever, looked at Jabba and though, “Muslim Terrorist.” Are we really so bigoted as a country that even when looking at a green (grayish), morbidly obese alien, the only thing we see is a muslim?
Which brings me to an even more disturbing thought.
I feel that America has taken a strange turn from being insensitive to way too sensitive. Saying the word “gay” can be perceived negatively, blacks are African Americans, don’t say illegal immigrants, retarded people are mentally disabled, and women will soon be, “individuals without penises”. We are so immensely afraid that someone will get offended, that we have to invent new phrases to refer to people that are different or even, to describe someone.
A while ago, I remember on the view, Barbara Walters kept refereing to “The N Word” and Johns didn’t like it. She wasn’t calling her a nigger, she wasn’t calling anyone else a nigger, she was simply covering a story with the word in it. I personally dont have a problem with this. If I see a word, I read it. The word can be “bitch”, “cunt”, “kik”, “chink”, whatever, and I’m going to say it. I won’t say, “The B Word”, because we are all adults, and if you have a problem with hearing things, even of they aren’t meant or said in a derogatory form, you should probably never walk outside, and stay far, far away from the internet.
I’ll give you an example.
I was talking to a friend a few months ago, nice guy and he was telling me about a break in at his store. He, luckily, was just closing up and actually had a chance to chase the guy away. I asked him what the guy looked like and the conversation went something like this:
“Not that tall, 5’11, 6’0 at most, darker fellow, sweat suit, slim built.”
“Darker? You mean tanned?”
“No, like racially darker.”
“No, darker than that.”
“Yeah, he was African American.”
“Why didn’t you just say that?”
You know why he didn’t? Because he didn’t want to offend me. Because if he said, “A black guy tried to break in my store.” he would be called “Racist”, “Bigot”, or even better, “Redneck”.
And I feel we throw these words around entirely too much. It trivializes actual cases of racism and bigotry. We call wolf so many times, is it any wonder that now, when things actually happen, people are almost prone to feel, “your playing the race card”. Not everyone who doesn’t like gays is a homophobe. Some people genuinely believe its wrong. Not everyone who says something negatively about a person, who happens to be black is racist. They might just not like that person. And if we are secure in who we are and ourselves, we won’t be offended by little things like that.
I’m in love with this man.
