Dr. Phil N-Word Show Recap - Madness

Ok, so as I expected, no major problems were solved, no minds were changed, and I definitely got pissed, but I watched Dr. Phil's N-Word special.

Long story short, here's the ish that pissed me off:

1. A White Woman who thinks she's perfectly justified in calling her BLACK husband "nigger." My problem is not with her using it, but for the black man who allows her to call him a nigger on a daily basis. Whether the word is used in jest or in an argument, I cannot imagine this ever being "ok" to any black men I know. Question for my black men out there - is this okay?

2. Similarly, there was a black woman (who made a point to say that she has a masters and law degree) allows her white husband to call her a nigger, not to mention she calls him a nigger and feels it's only a problem if you "give" power to the word. Damn. Sisters, do you think this is cool? Does this mean we've come that far that a white man can now call us a "nigger?" I guess for her it's cool with that master's degree and all - she's no nigger.

3. Lastly, several young black men on the show defending the word and clearly not knowing the history behind the word. I mean I've heard and I continue to hear it around different groups of friends, family, etc, but I just have never adopted that word in my lexicon.

4. A couple white women and a mexican woman telling Paul Mooney to "get over it" - slavery ended decades ago. I've heard this argument a lot and they have some nerve. I NEVER hear anyone telling Jews to "get over it" - and may I add that the African Holocaust trumped that event in history by hundreds of thousands of people and happened right here in the great ole' USA.

What do you think?
"The events which transpired five thousand years ago;
Five years ago or five minutes ago, have determined
what will happen five minutes from now; five years
From now or five thousand years from now.
All history is a current event."

I probably should have waited until mid afternoon to read this because this is not how I want to start my day! I have been feeling pretty damn racist lately.

Anyway, there is no way white people would call me nigga and i'd be cool with it. Not even my BLACK boyfriend calls me nigga so why the hell would I not put my whole fist down the throat of a white one?

I had to turn the TV off after 10 minutes of the show. I can't understand how it's alright for someone to use 'nigga/er' in casual conversation, but get burned at the stake for using a swastika. How is it any different?

Where did you find that photo of the sign. Is that for real? That's something someone made on their computer as satire right? Please tell me someone didn't take that photo on a real street in a real neighborhood...

Unfortunately, I'd bet that sign is real. I'm not sure where this picture was taken, but I"ll update the post if I find out. Anyone else know where this was taken? I found it surfing the net.

I often enjoy when someone who is racist calls me "Nigger".
I'm going to end up beating them in any contest or situation. Afterwards I just laugh that they were just beatten by a "Nigger".

On the other hand, none of my non-Black friends would ever call me a "Nigger".
