Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

"Our new Nigger-Brown color scheme."

Is this where I'm supposed think CoT is cool for disregarding the taboo nature of the phrasing and that I'm also cool for being above the fray or caring about the word?

I think we need to put additional racial slurs up there for good measure:

"Coming Soon:  Nigger-Brown, Wop-Vanilla, Chink-Yellow, Cracker-White, and Irish-Fag color scheme!"

or somesuch.

sharkfish, if you're gonna insult me and my peeps, at least have the courtesy to spell the word 'spic' correctly.

I mean, geez, is that really too much to ask?

And to make matters worse, we were the last ethnic group for you to think of! Come on, girl, we Hispanics are an emerging demographic!

You should be above it.  Retroactively applied taboo is fucking retarded.

Thank you.  The banner is a lot more comical this way.

See, I knew we could join hands in hate.

The difference is that none of us takes any of those slurs seriously except for you.  You can call me a Cracker Irish Fag all day.

Sharky, you HAD to start your OWN thread to continue the theme you find objectionable?

I'm beginning to wonder about you.  You SURE you're black?  'Cause this is the kind of behavior I would expect from a fat white male guy drinking beer, in his underwear, in his mother's basement, as he tries to figure out how best to race-bait an online forum.

Reminds me of the southpark with the flag outrage.

There was a flag with a black stick man hanging and all these white stick men standing around.

In the end, the kids make a flag where all the people standing around watching the hanging are all different colors.

Ah Hubble.  They baited me with Nigger, I took the bait.

Keep posting the word, eventually I'll say something about it.

So who is really trolling here...we know the word is inappropriate.

After having it up for half a day, someone had some sense and took it down.

Why don't you bitch at them for being so silly and inconsiderate?

Nooooo.  It has to be MEEEEEEE that's the one.  Wanna start some shit with a black person?  Want them to react?

Be my guest.  Call them a nigger.  Go ahead.

See what you get.  My reaction was completely sarcastic and detached from actual emotion.

If you want me to get mad, it won't happen.

I DID bitch at them for being inconsiderate and running something into the ground.

But I'm glad I didn't make you mad.  I'm not trying to make you mad.  I'm trying to make a point with kindness and absurdity. 

In the hope that you can understand the point I'm trying to make, which is that sometimes the way you implement your reaction to something you find objectionable actually furthers the thing you find objectionable.

And to ask you in the kindest, gentlest terms possible, to please stop doing that.  You're very clever, I'm sure you can find more positive ways to fight the good fight than to "sarcastically" repeat the points of those you oppose.  Because I don't think those you oppose 'get' your sarcasm.

I can assure you they do not. Not because I am one of them but because I am pretty certain the majority are at least mildly retarded.

Oh and the Southpark I was tlkaing about... they also added people of each color being hung. Important detail. I thought it was hilarious, their answer to making it PC.

My wife and I still laugh about the "non-offensive christmas play with music by Philip Glass" from Season 1.
