    See http://www.usmessageboard.com/showpost.php?p=584422&postcount=117

    I don’t beat around the bush either. Read the dictionary again. The word “******” is an extremely Disparaging and Offensive term for a Black person. It does not qualify the Black person. The Black person might be rich or poor. He can show class or no class.

    If you don’t think that “Fag” is to “Homosexual” as “******” is to “Black”, then is “Fag” to “Homosexual” as “Jesus Freak” is to “Christian”? ”? All Christians are merely Jesus Freaks. They are synonymous terms and self-defining. Consider the term “Half Breed”. Is it a good term for an interracial child? Is “Broad” or “Chick” a suitable term for a “Woman”? Is “Chink” a good term for a Chinese person?

    Can’t we simple cut out the stupid name-calling?

    It is a matter of identity. The term Cracker or Honky has not caught in the “white community”. Yet, if it had caught on, it would be okay for whites to call each other honky or cracker but socially out-of-line for other races to call white people such offensive terms.

    You think that because you haven't been oppressed.

    I'm not sure a political party has anything to do with it. It's a matter of whether or not you are overly-sensitive to other people's opinions. I hardly consider that a trait restricted to a political belief.
