    Another double standard. Watch Comedy Central and you'll see the double standard. Black guy makes jokes about white people nd everybody laughs. White guy makes jokes about black people and isn't seen or heard from again!!

    I've are plenty of black people tell me they hate it when they hear other black people refer to each other a n*gger. They say it completely undermines everything they've worked for. I tend to agree with them.

    Yeah, and "the other guys are just as bad as us"...is not a campaign slogan that inspires confidence.

    And this is exactly what I'm talking about. Minority Republicans may help you win an argument, but they're not going to convince anyone of anything. Minority Republicans are seen as defectors.

    That all depends. There are white folks who do it all the time, and have no problems. If you're white, and you grew up in the hood; and have the same mannerisms as the group using the word; you'll be alright. However, if you're just some random dude faking the intonation and everything, they're going to notice.

    For example?

    Well, there certain post-slavery "eras" that you can divide the history of black American culture into. First, immediately following the Emancipation; black people were doing their damnedest to do exactly what today's conservatives say that want black people to do: integrate. They named their children the same names that white people named their children, their aspired to succeed the same way white people did and wanted the same opportunities, the dressed the same way white people did (to the extent that their finances allowed); you name it.

    But despite all of those efforts, they were still denied integration into mainstream society.

    Enter the 1960's, 100 year after the Emancipations. After 100 years of blacks trying to integrate, and repeatedly being denied. They finally decided that it was time for them to look to each other for validation. And this is where a unified black culture began to emerge; and where they made strong efforts to culturally distinguish themselves from whites - since whites had been rejecting them for a whole century. This is where black cultural aspects, such as "black names," started to emerge.

    By this time; the damage had been done.

    However, hope wasn't lost. After Jim Crow ended with the Civil Rights Era, into the 70's, black culture became "cool" and admired. Blaxpoitation films, soul music, you name it; everyone was into it. Then we move into the 1980's; and picture this: black TV shows, particularly black sitcoms, with high white viewership (unlike now, where movies and TV shows with mostly black casts are viewed as being made ONLY for black people, where movies and TV shows with only white casts are made for "everyone."). Remember The Cosby Show? How many people do we know, black, white, or otherwise, that didn't love that show?

    While there was plenty of racism from the Jim Crow Era that had yet to die off; the following ten years showed obvious signs of progress. Black folks were on the move, and society was headed toward integration.

    Then, in 1985, something happened. It didn't hurt race relations much, but it killed and scaled back the progress that blacks were making for themselves. What happened? The introduction of crack. Not just the drug itself, but the increased violence that it caused over turf wars when deciding who gets to sell where.

    Even if it would have had a bad affect on race relations, something great happened started in the late 1980's that lasted into the early 1990's: the New Jack Swing Era. The time where we all loved similar music - Al B Sure, Milli Vanilli, Keith Sweat, George Michael, MC Hammer, Taylor Dayne, Color Me Badd, Kid n Play; music that we've all done "the running man" or "the Roger Rabbit" or any variation thereof to.

    Then... the wedge between black and white started to be driven, when the LA Riots started. Although it was never the intent of grunge to do this (as early alternative/grunge in the 80's included artists like Tracy Chapman and Was (Not Was)), it began to lure away whites who felt alienated by the aftermath surrounding the LA Riots.

    This mostly left hip hop and R&B with only black listeners, and the music became... "de-tamed" since they no longer felt that the appeal had to be universal, and their baggage from the riots was carried into it. The result was the rise of "gangsta rap," and the promotion of loveless sex in R&B music.

    The final nail in the coffin wasn't there yet. The OJ trial took care of that.

    The OJ trial brings us to where we are now, though I'm sure one could argue that the time after Obama's election might be distinguishable.

    Yet you hear it all the time from Republicans.

    Homophobic Christian Republicans caught having homosexual sex in the men's room? No worries, the Democrats are just as bad. Obama saluted the Marines while talking on his cell phone.

    Re: Racism in the Racsim and sexism isn't just for republicans

    What is amazing is that even with all this supposed racism in the south and GOP being racist biggots, blacks are migrating in mass to the south and other red states. Guess it cant be all that bad. And you actually see more racism from minorities towards other minorities than you see from whites. Many people in the big liberal cities love their little segregated sections, and refuse to change and be part of the American culture. Lastly, to believe that the southerners have all ways been the same southerners or that people from the south have never moved north or west is rediculous. But to also believe that kids always follow their parents beliefs, that nieve in thinking, if it happened like that, Joe wouldnt be praising all those kids becoming athiest and there would have never been an end to slavery because the north loved slaves in the beginning too. Generations change in their thinking, just because the south was historically glamorized as racist while the north and west racisms were ignored, doesnt mean that the south is STILL perdominately racist as the north and west are now.
