you know if it had been some black guy sayin sh8t about some white kids they would've pulled his @ss out quick and i don't like being called a nigger/nigga by black people let alone having some white man saying it so casually. I can't agree with you on this issue

^^^^That's true they probably would have. And you see they pulled Don Imus out. But I don't agree with Dog getting penalized because that was a private conversation. he was just saying that he didn't wnat his son to bring around the black girl because she would get offended because he used the n-word alot. Of course he shouldn't use the n-word but as long as he's saying it in the comfort of his home and not directly towards someone and no one hears it. it shouldn't be a problem. now if he was calling people that just for the heck of it to their face or something (which would be a very stupid idea), then there would be a problem. And oh yeah as for Kramer, for his comments I do believe he should be penalized because once agin like Don Imus, he did he said what he said publically. Therefore he should have to suffer the consequences.

In the US, everyone has the right to free speech so they can say whatever they like. However, you don't have to endorse or listen to them and eventually they fade away.

by reading some of these comments it seems like no one thinks the n word is a bad word anymore. Black, White whatever. after Dog said what he said it seemed like there was someone on every major news channel crying for forgiveness before there was any real outrage over his comments. hell, people were actually sympathetic towards him as though he was a victim in all this. I'm all for free speech but there are such things as respect and morality in this world.

1. was using terms such as "nigger" and "nappy headed hoes" wrong? yes
2. was it offensive? yes
3. did they know better? yes
4. should people who choose to do bad things and are capable of knowing right from wrong be held accountable for their actions? yes

I'm not sure if Imus or Dog should have been fired the way that they were but I don't feel sorry for them. They were clearly in the wrong. They both offended me, but Dog really pissed me off. Not only did he use the n word repeatedly in his taped conversation, he admitted to using it regularly. then the man had the nerve to go on tv and blame his poor education and lack of vocabulary. What! Dog may be no Rhodes scholar but a poor education is not the same as lacking common sense. he had the common sense to know that that Black girl would be offended if she ever heard him say the word. he admitted that much himself. so how can he possibly claim that he's too stupid to find another word to call a Black person? What an asshole! It's a shame because I liked him. he had a good show. He even seemed sincere in his apologies until he started making excuses.

Now, I don't think Kramer, Imus or Dog are vicious cross-burning kkk members and quite frankly I wouldn't care if they were. That's not even the issue with me cause what people really think and feel doesn't matter to me. The point is that all of them got caught doing something they had no damn business doing in the first place. So yeah they angered and offended a lot of people and they suffered the consequences of their actions. They should cuz they knew better. I think it was a smart move to pull their shows off the air so people know that that won't be tolerated. I'd have been disappointed if no action was taken. However I would have been satisfied with a suspension.

I think if you have racist believes thats your prerogative, however, it should be confided to yourself and not shared openly. There may be freedom of speech but spreading hate and prejudice doesn't help anyone solve anything. Just a little sensitivity is all i want.

oh and btw the politically correct terminology for someone of African Descent is African American or African (insert your country here) Black is such a blunt term especially when describing a people as a whole.

Blaming us for what's happening in Africa today is laughable.

No, I'm just telling the truth.


yes, your opinion on what's laughable is the truth, nice way to show your ignorance there.

of course you are right, africans had fire arms and explosives and mass genocides at least 1000 years before white men showed up... you are correct there. white men had absolutely no part in the violence in africa today.

and nice way to avoid directly arguing with everyones valid points by listing some vague comment on how stupid black people are. arguments like that seem to be abundant among flamers on crunchyroll. anyways lets just settle this.
black men have dominant traits. whitey will be breeded out of the human civilization eventually, but that's good news for the ladies i guess, if you know what i mean mushroomjay

People just need to not be so fucking sensitive. You can't say anything anymore without "offending" some group.


are you serious? There is no such thing as a "bad education"
You either try or you don't. Pick up a book, it's that simple. The reason is most blacks prefer to go out on the street, and get high rather than be in a class and learn. As I mentioned before, the blacks are suppose to try harder in school because of their history, however, they're not.



Agreed.
