Racism aside, the above is correct. Words only have the power we give to them.

We sometimes jokingly call each other "nigger". Or she calls me "cracker".

It's a hangover from our days of racism in Korea, I guess. Those words have no power over us, because we don't let them.

I'm starting to get the feeling that this is a massive waste of my time. I've made my point, you don't like it, and you don't even want to try to see it from my angle.

So, I'll leave by saying this: Please don't tell your child to beat people up if they call him names. There's already enough violence in the world without some uppity African-American running around with a badly formed sense of entitlement. Not to mention the victim complex that will immediately follow if he doesn't choose to ignore racist comments.
O love will you read the letters I will send to you.

It is correct, however petty name calling is only a small part of racism.

I hope you never have kids. They don't need to live in an alcoholic house like yours. And I don't tell him to beat people up if they are racist. I used that line as what society would do in that situation. I'm not an idiot. But by all means. Continue to live your life however you want. Do us all a favor and keep you opinions to yourself tho. 9/11 was an inside job??... Come on lol

To be fair, there is a decent chance 9/11 was an inside job.

Exactly. Try living in a republican state in the USA. Racism isn't gone. And there is little name calling. Last year in New York. 90% of traffic stops on black men were dismissed, literally no charges, no ticket, no anything. Tell me racism is just words. Boss needs to grow up

I think it's funny that anyone has a definite answer as to what happened. We were told who perpetrated it. We have no first hand knowledge of what/who orchestrated that event.

Why do you keep telling me to grow up? Do you know how old I am?

At the risk of beating the shit out of this, this argument was focused on racist WORDS and their relation to racism. Obviously there's a big difference between the word "nigger" and lynching the shit out of someone.

The fact that you're in your 30s doesn't mean you act it.

I've always thought that there were enough questions to keep the idea of an inside job, or an allowed event, relevant and a real possibility.

Maybe I'm just crazy though for not believing politicians and the media. Real nuts.

My ex was Chinese. I used to make "slanty eyes" faces at her when her back was turned.

Still cracks me up.

Why do you have a black son if you're white?

Why do you identify your son as black if it's from your white genes?

Of course you may have adopted.

Or left him in the sun too long.

But if you came up to my son and called him a nigger, or anyone that's black for that matter, or if it was racist against you, do you honestly think you or me or whoever, wouldn't beat the shit outta you? Just be mature.
Call a black guy a nigger, he chimps out and beats the shit out of you.

Yeah, he sure proved he's not a nigger.

I doubt Jamal would swing anyway without 5 brothers with him.

Not sure how this post is related to The Grudge but you sound like your boy Danza. Too scared of change, too dumb to realise how fucking idiotic you sound dropping N bombs behind a computer screen, I'll bet you feel like a big man with your brain washed way of thinking. It's sad to know there are TOOL fans out there who are disgusting humans, incapable of change with no remorse for their actions. Black white brown yellow blue who goes a fuck man seriously get out of that bigot mindset. You are only limiting yourself as a human. You may not see it now but you will one day. I understand racism is somewhat "accepted" in Oz, but fuck man you seriously need to move on from that shit. It baffles me you are even a fan of the band. Your a poser dude. A fucken wannabe tough guy trying to spread your bigot views. At the end of the day no matter what u say or think, you are only making yourself look like the fool u are. Jesus what is this 1850? It's Time to progress as a species, not stay frozen in the past. Move on man, I hope you get there someday

What the fuck ARE you talking about?

I never met an African American, but have met plenty of Africans.

None of them were niggers, had plenty of picnics, no beatings, just great people. Even gave up my seat on the train to a heavily pregnant black woman.

All I have for my disdain for niggers are matched up with statistics.

Also black people don't equal niggers.

Black people acting like niggers equal niggers.
