"It appears that your originial topic has turned more into a vehicle to attack others rather than a valid discussion and has gotten way off topic."
It would appear that way to you, of course. You ignore the fact you've attacked others here.
"I would also disagree with the poster who said that no educated black person would use the 'N' word, since that would indicate that she has heard or knows EVERY educated Black persons, and like you, I've been around educated Blacks who have used the term."
I agree...and I love the fact you pointed out someones presumption....something "The Presumer" does quite frequently. I do know several, very well educated blacks who use the "n-word"...often to other blacks, often in jest and occasionally, with disrespect. But again....it's the CONTEXT that makes the word a slur, not the word itself.
"Both was from the North."
Was that an intentional use of ebonics?
"There is no doubt that there are many in this area that use the word, but no doubt that is true in other areas as well, Minnesota, Kentucky, etc."
OF COURSE!!! Then why did you declare otherwise before? You raised the word hypocrite...sounds as if you finally looked in the mirror.
"Seems to me it is just finger pointing from those that are being hypocritical in pointing out others' faults while ignoring their own."
The Presumer, presuming again.....I DO point out your lies and hypocrisy....it must pain you.
"It seems that the posters who are making a big deal of this are just generalizing, and especially the one that has 'turned the hounds' on to me. Neither has any idea of what my everyday life here is like, just like the only thing I can judge them by is their accusing posts."
Just as they judge your words...not you personally. Look at you playing "good guy", yet you've attacked easyed endlessly and nagged me to death demanding to know my qualifications. How asinine is that?
"I can honestly say that I've busted several racial barriers for Blacks and other minorities in my life."
Cool...good for you. So why did you need to defend your "area"? Why couldn't you admit, just as you have here, that racism is everywhere and worse in some places than others. Isn't that a fact?
I can....and still do today. But I don't boast about it.
"One would have to wonder if they had something to hide in their life in view of their continued protests on this topic."
Just as one would "have to wonder" why someone has the NEED to defend there state.
"In any event, I've put one poster on ignore since his posts are mainly attacking others' opinions, not discussion, but attacks even resorting to playing professor by correcting other's grammar and spelling as a means of degnigrating (sic) their posts."
The Presumer, once again, presumes he knows all. And he actually believes others are "degnigrated" (sic) by having their errors highlighted. It's a blatant lie to suggest I've corrected anyone's spelling or grammar...I don't change a word. It's also VERY hypocritical that Tex would whine about "attacks" when everyone can see that's what he's done here and in earlier posts. And most understand that's why he's no longer a moderator on this forum.
"But basically that's exactly what the topic has turned into, a series of attacks against others."
Some adults can actually see differing views are being expressed...it was YOU who started calling others hypocrites....or did you just forget?
