aaaahh, yes I have heard the old song. "We don't have anything against "negras". In fact we love our good niggers. It's not them. It's those bad niggers who live up north and keep badmouthing our Great South.
Thank you Tom. Perhaps you can spare us any further pontificating.
(A black woman who indeed knows "the code").
Again Irene, I was talking about "HOLLYWOOD LIBERALS". not the usual liberals or for that matter conservatives. It's the ones in Hollywood who live in other countrys and bad mouth out Great Country...
Leave if you must but I hope you don't....

I've decided to leave this group since I suspect your poor and insensitive response is representative of this group and in accordance with your description of the group. Let's call it the OTR Righteous Christian, anti-liberal OTR group. It's a lot better to talk about what we have in common rather than our differences.
All I have in common with you is that we are both Christians but definitely with different sensitivities. You seem to assume that this group of friends as you call it all are Christian and followers of Jesus. The odds of that being true are definitely long. You don't seem to care at all if there are any members who don't share your beliefs.

- TB> Well lordy be, Now miss denise why do YOU have to introduce the "N" word here???
Heh, I grew up in an environment that had racial epithets in
every other sentence (I'm from New York originally), and to any
of us, regardless of race, the "N" word, as you call it, was
just as harmless as any other, and I've always laughed when
people start taking things too seriously, or when they tell you
"you can't use that word" but they clearly still do themselves.
Silly, just silly.
I recall a few hilarious examples that may just give you pause
and a giggle. They certainly make me laugh and help put things
in their true perspective, which serves to slap us in the face
and say "lighten up!" :)
I knew a man that went to a Chinese restaurant. Being his usual
goofball self, he raised his hand to summon the waiter, and he
decided to add the typical French statement, "Garcon! Garcon!"
(Probably spelled wrong, but you get the idea.)
Suddenly this little Chinese man races over to the table, looks
him straight in the eye, ready to take their orders, and
responds, "Oui, monsieur!"
Another time there was this redneck guy working in a kitchen,
and one of his fellow co-workers, a black man, was trying to get
him to say "nigger." The guy was so scared to say it, having
grown up in today's society and filled with these ridiculous
taboos, and the black guy was doing his best not to crack up
laughing. He kept pushing, and finally the white guy uttered a
croaked, accented "neeeeeeeegerrrr," all the while shaking in
his boots in fear. The black guy busted up laughing, and I'm
glad to see a black man that finds it humorous and doesn't
assume everything is hate-filled. People are just people, and
words are just words. I tend to take each as they come and make
my determinations as they are merited. Assumptions form
And to close, as well as top everything off, I'll add a personal
I'm an Indian (Seneca, to be specific), and I went to lunch one
day with my friend Mark, who is as white as you can get, blonde
hair, blue eyes, etc. He had heard a new racial slue in a movie
regarding Indians the previous night, and was waiting for a
chance to lay it on me. So, we're sitting there at a Wendy's
eating lunch, and he waits for me to take a big bite of my
burrito, looks me straight in the eye, and says casually,
I spew. All over the place. Then I bust up laughing and attempt
to recompose myself amidst the greasy, sour-cream covered
I wait a few minutes as things get back to normal, having
decided on my revenge and needing the perfect time to inflict
it. Minutes later we're composed and back to eating, and *I* now
wait for him to have a mouthful. He does, and I casually start
off with, "Yeah, I'm not a racist. I think all of my
subservients should have variety..."
He spews. Got 'em! My reward? Now *I'm* covered in goo, but it
was worth it, watching him sit there with tears running down his
cheeks and a rueful "you sumbich" look on his face. :)
Words are words, and none of us really cared, because we could
easily tell when someone really meant something nasty, and then,
if they did, does it really matter which specific words they
chose to get the point across? "I hate you" is just as bad and
to to point, right? Avoiding certain words doesn't change a
person's intent, and just deprives us of some colorful lingo to
employ fun-loving torture on those we love, as depicted above.
Oh, one thing. I later raced over to see a friend of mine, a
fellow Indian (he's Crow tribe), and I rushed up and laid it on
him. "Prairie Nigger!" sez I with a grin on my face, expecting
him to bust up laughing.
He almost punched me.
Ok, so not *everyone* has a sense of humor. :)
Life's too short to sweat the small stuff.
