Can someone explain to me why Jamie fox can have a hit song called broke N****
and win an award, and Dr. Laura can use the N word and get fired. I believe it is an offensive word reguardless of who uses it.

But in our country Chris Rock a well known comic uses it in his act all the time, I heard a black woman use it in the grocery store last night (she was on her sell phone).

So why the double standard? and I know what you will say .."its different when a black person says it"

why is that? I think its not! I think if you find the word offensive when i use it then you should not use it either?

Well, if you are one, or could be one, it may be okay. Carlos Mencea calls Hispanics beaners. Jeff Foxworthy has his redneck jokes. If you are within the boundaries, you are probably not outside the lines.

So if you are one? Try calling a Black person the N word and see if they feel they are one

Like I said, Maxximuss, If I was black, I could probably get away with it. What do you think would happen to a black guy and going into a honky tonk where the patrons worship Patsy Cline and he called the customers rednecks? The same thing as what would happen to an Asian dude waltzing into a cantina where people are mourning Celina years later and calling the folks in there beaners. If you are one, you might get away with it. Oh, I guess I am supposed to laugh when nothing is said that is funny

It is kind of like Native Americans will call each other skins and it is a sign of brotherhood. If you are not Indian and say it, you will get your ass kicked and handed to you ( and I mean that literally) because it is not the same thing when it is used as a sign of disrespect. It all depends on the meaning given to it by the person. Dr Laura was using it as a sign of disrespect and should have known better. That is not her first trip down this road and I just have a feeling that the sponsors felt it should be her last.

I don't get it...wondered for years. Why can they have a Miss Black A,erica, but not a Miss White America? Double standards...it's the only answer.

I don't care what your race is, I think it is distrespectful for you and others to say and hear. I don't appreciate hearing the N word all over my neighborhood and in the music. I find it keeps others down and creates low self esteem. I just don't like it. Of course I am not around other cultures or other ethnic groups, so I can't say how I feel anout their language used amongst their own....I don't go around calling other white people honkies...I say yes maam, excuse me sir, hello young man, how is everyone, and when I see a friend, I call them by their name.

For one thing, using it helps perpetuate the feeling of racial inequality. If blacks were to be totally equal, Al & Jesse would be out of a job. It is in their best interest to keep hatred alive. Believe it.

Richard Pryor eventually got it right.

My "N-word"?

Not touching this. Besides, every time I speak, things get apeshit around here.

I find Dr Laura very offensive

This is the same woman who told a woman to put her disabled child in a home so she could have a life and has made many other remarks that would offend people. I find her tirades inappropiate and rarely helpful to those who call her. I have a feeling this was just the straw that broke the camel's back with sponsors. She should be grateful that they let her finish out her contract because IMO that hack should have been fired long ago.

flavor...that was funny, but I really don't have to worry about the future ...all the racist mo fuckers are killing each other. Why??? I don't know? Anger??? maybe. I was raised to be respectful of all races. I am not angry at the germans for killing all my ancestors. I am a Jew. I am one that survived via others that survived. Lucky I guess. I respect life and have no wy hindered the lives of others. Just because I am white doesn't mean I helped create the racist scenario.I have no guilt. None of my ancestors had slaves. We weren't even given the option, nor given a place to work or be enslaved...we were just killed...by gas or fire.
Every race has beeen enslaved or at war during some point in time. Only the blacks have succeeded in being paid back for their distraught lives...when their own people are the ones that sold them.

Name one other ethnic group/race that feels they should be entitled to compensation for what their own race did to their own.
