Republican Dropped Over ‘Daily Show’ Comments Uses N-Word Again

Republican Dropped Over 'Daily Show' Comments Uses N-Word Again

Don Yelton tells TheWrap his party should have used his “lazy blacks” comment as proof it accepts all views

Don Yelton, the North Carolina Republican who lost a county precinct chairman position after deriding “lazy blacks” on “The Daily Show,” isn't exactly backing down.

Reached by TheWrap for comment on the situation, he used the N-word, said his county party was out to get him because of old grievances, and stood by his comment that “lazy blacks” shouldn't decide elections. He said lazy college students and lazy whites shouldn't, either.

Yelton spoke to “The Daily Show” about a voter fraud law that critics say is designed to keep blacks from the polls. Republicans would have preferred that the show speak to someone else from their party.

In the era of satirical news and reality TV, lots of people complain that they've been misrepresented when their on-air comments make them seem racist. But Yelton says he stands by everything he said.

“When a n—– can use the word n—– and it not be considered racist, that's the utmost racism in the world, and it's hypocrisy,” he told me, a reporter calling to see if he'd been unfairly branded a racist.

Yelton said Republicans had lost an opportunity to use his statements as proof that they are open to all views.

“They can turn it into a positive if they want to,” said Yelton, 66. “The party does not try to control the speech of individuals. That's the point they could have made. You have to let people have an opinion.”

Instead, he said, the county party had chosen “to act like this comedy show is the truth and come down with an iron fist. And I said iron fist for a reason.”

Yelton said he was previously removed from his position as a precinct chair in Buncombe County in 2012, but was re-elected at a three-person meeting by two votes — his own and his wife's. He said he was previously removed for voicing what the party considered support for an independent candidate.

Yelton said he has been retired since he was fired 16 years ago from a job as a county waste reduction specialist. He was fired, essentially, for doing the job too well, he said.

“This isn't my first rodeo,” he said.

He also noted that local Republicans have long complained that they can't get enough media coverage, and that he had finally provided some.

“There's no political party that's going to tell me what to say as long as I have breath in my body,” he said.

      The Daily Show and liberal press likes to ignore 99 percent of what conservatives and Republicans are really about and focus on some screwball like this. Liberals and Democrats have more than their fair share of screwballs as well but the liberal press won't focus on them. The big difference is Republican will kick out the screwballs and the liberals thrive on theirs. Whereas Republican prefer to get their point across by telling the truth, Democrats primarily embrace telling lies. Look at Pelosi who is on video telling people that their premiums wouldn't go up with Obamacare, and no she says she doesn't remember saying it. Its not that she's so good at telling lies, but she figures if Obama embraces telling lies and Democrats in general tell lies, she would be praised for it. And among Democrats, they do praise telling lies. So no, this guy doesn't represent 99 percent of Republicans. Republicans know that. And sadder yet, Democrats know that as well, they just don't mind telling lies. That's why they voted for Obama.

      • sam

        Why don't you talk about the 99% of what conservatives are really about because I'm certainly not hearing it from conservatives. True reasonable conservatives aren't making their voices heard over the wacko tea party. The teabaggers scare the few remaining reasonable republicans into silence and they've got John Boehner by the balls. Would you consider Ted cruz a screwball? What high ranking screwball on the right has been kicked out? Douchebag Anthony weiner was kicked out immediately for his dic pics. He didn't even have sex with anybody. What happened to republican gov. Mark Sanford? Cheats on his wife and now is running for office again with plenty of support from ultra religious suckers who like a good redemption story. And what is this liberal press you are talking about? MSNBC? Sure, they lean left more than anybody, but guess what? A conservative by the name of Joe Scarborough hosts a 3 hour show on that channel in the morning. Does Fox news have any liberals hosting their own shows? What do you think, kid?

        • valorius

          sure, conservatives are for responsible fiscal policy, smaller government, less government intrusion, and a strong national defense.

          anything else you need me to help you out with holmes?

          • Tommie Styles

            They also want to socially dictate to you how to live your life, and tell you that your wrong if you don't live it this way. You are automatically out of the loop if your not a straight white male protestant.

            Until Republicans want to truly turn this perception around, they are always going to have election problems. And it won't get any better in the future, because the demographics are ever changing for diversity.

          • valorius

            Is the president a straight white male protestant?

            I am a long haired rough around the edges tatooed agnostic, and i have voted republican many times, though i am an independent. i think you need to remove your blinders of hatred.

            there are many republicans of many races and some gay ones too. stop regurgitating the lies the msm spews to keep you in the D camp.

          • Tommie Styles

            Nope, Valorius, he's a balck man. First in history it wasn't a white guy. He got re-elected even.

            Do you know you just proved my point right, trying to argue me down? If the white majority was still as strong as it was 20….years ago, Obama wouldn't be president. Which is why you should probably shut you mouth and listen to me.

            When was the last time you heard a major GOP candidate go into a city where the minority is the majority? Dems do come into urbanized areas. I'm not saying that they haven't done this….but from my own eyes of hatred, as you say, they just go to the Suburbs and preach to their own choir. It tells me, subconsciously, that Republicans don't care for urban people. So, why should I vote for someone who doesn't even care to come though my way? It makes no sense.

            Maybe if you can see from others perspective than your own, you'll understand why minorities don't vote Republican. Maybe if they dropped the social crap, and just handle and push economic subjects…they might win again.

          • valorius

            obama is only 1/4 black.
            it was whites that elected him to office, not the 12.9% of he population that is black. he got 10s of millions of votes from whites.

          • Tommie Styles

            Once again, you didn't really read what I said….do you have a comprehension problem? Let me break it down for you.
            Whites DID vote for Obama, but the white majority (especially males) backed Romney 65% to 35%…..and Romney was a terrible candidate, according to you.
            Obama's voting base was 55% white while Romney's was a whopping 88%, and didn't win. That means that the white majority is either split, or is losing its “power” due to the times. That means that the GOP must adapt, and welcome everyone, go everywhere to scrape votes up….because if it doesn't, the R is surely to parish without adaptation!
            PS- According to the “old” rules about one drop of black blood, that unofficially prevailed as “law of races”, Obama is black. It's funny that the “rule” is being receded because SOME whites hate the fact that the president is black…period, so I see that statement as justification in your and others feeble little minds NOT to say that YOUR president, the person who represents YOU and I on the world stage, the person calling the shots…is black.
            Lesson is over, Valorius
            YOUR WELCOMED!

          • valorius

            what % of blacks voted for obama?

          • jasonwheeler97

            Well with your statistical analysis of what qualifies a person as black, perhaps nobody black voted for him, since most African Americans are of mixed heritage. Does that suit your equation?

          • valorius

            we all know blacks consider him black, regardless of his actual racial make up.

            you're doding my question….what % of blacks voted for obama?

            93%, according to the article below.

            http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/DC-Decoder/Decoder-Wire/2012/1107/Election-results-2012-Who-won-it-for-Obama-video

            so if whites are racist for voting 2/3s for romney…what does that make blacks?

          • valorius

            i think what it means is that whites vote for whatever candidate they like best, and blacks vote universally for the black guy.

          • valorius

            barack obama is 50% white, 25% arab, 25% black.

            by any reasonable measuring stick, he is multiracial, not black.

            my baby, who is (at most) 50% black, is also multiracial, not black.

          • valorius

            btw, he is not my president any more than bush or clinton were not my president- i didn't vote for either one of them either.

            the president i would consider as ‘mine’ is reagan.

          • valorius

            i would also consider JFK to be ‘my’ president too. while he was dead before i was ever born, i do strongly identify with many of the ideals he espoused.

            so the last two presidents i would consider as ‘my’ presidents are 1 republican- reagan, and 1 democrat- kennedy.

            of all the modern batch of presidents since reagan, if i had to pick one (with a gun to my head) to best represent me, i'd pick clinton first, and bush and obama would be tied for last.

            they were/are both HORRIFIC presidents.

          • jasonwheeler97

            If JFK was dead before you were born, then you must have been pretty young when Reagan was president. Otherwise if you had been older, you would have realized that he sucked as president. He was senile when he was in office. Well….

          • valorius

            I was in the US military under Reagan and Bush I.

            Reagan certainly had his shortfalls, but he also had enormous positive effects on the country as well. I know, i lived through it.

          • v m

            Obama is 1/2 Black (Father is Black Kenyan) and 1/2 white (mother is White American (mostly English ancestry)].

          • valorius

            if you made any effort whatsoever to research his lineage you would see that his father was in fact largely arabic, some sources state that obama is actually as little as 6.5% black by lineage, with 43.5% arabic, and 50% white.

            google it, i'm not just sitting here making this up.

          • jasonwheeler97

            He's half black. His father was from Africa. His mom was white.

          • valorius

            His father was arab-black. he's 1/4 black. By majority, he's 1/2 white.

          • janegray

            Arab isn't a race either.

          • valorius

            Tell that to an Arab.

          • valorius

            ps, romney was a horrific candidate in any case, i certainly did not vote for him.

          • lee gary

            Newsflash sparkster….U don't know jack. You think you do but you don't. Were I u I would be more concerned about Obama's amnesty plan and the effect it will have on the black community if >20+ million of them become legal. It will prove to be an unmitigated disaster both economically and socially because they will enjoy the same advantages afforded blacks. See, that's why many employers hope that reform passes. BTW, obama isn't black either. He's just smart enough to let his physical appearance make fools of millions of the population.

          • Tommie Styles

            …..Where do I begin……your a Prince fan, correct?

            get it?…. Maybe not…
            Wait….I'm not legal yet? Gee….mister. I hope I'm one of the 20 million in the black communitiy that gets legal!
            Look Mr. Gray….I never ever said I knew Jack, he sounds like a popular guy.
            All kidding aside, sir, I never will be so arrogant to say I know very much. I'm still learning in this world…..BUT, by the unintentional, semi-comical way that you presented your argument…..I'm going to say I probably know more than you.

            which is the entire point of the tea party movement….they felt betrayed by the republican party ‘establishment', the big spending big government republicans like Bush II.

      • Luci Widnesor

        You get how it is? A fringe Republican – county precinct chairman?? gee how high level can you get?? – makes a vulgar comment and “Republican” makes the headline. A prominent film and TV star goes on a talk show and says that Henry Hyde (late senator) and his family should be dragged out of their house and stoned and he gets a starring role in a sitcom, a batch of commercials and an MSNBC talk show.
        As for those who persist in using the term “tea baggers” despite the fact that it is known to be a very disgusting term – it is not “liberal” in the original sense of the word to be selective with your outrage.

      • kingdlb02 .

      republicans could never possibly use the word as much as any inner city black does on a daily basis.

      • Tommie Styles

        Valorius, as a black guy, I hate that word, and could count on my hands as many time as I've used it.That proves nothing except that you might need better black friends.

          well you're welcome to look me up next time you're in my town. i'm always open to new friends. :)

          • Tommie Styles

            Look, Valorius….I'm not saying your a bad cat….I really don't know you and really won't judge you until and if we meet. Just because you and I don't agree politically doesn't mean that we can't be friends and learn from each other…..because really and truly, that's what life is all about. I certainly don't have all the answers (really don't have many answers at all), and appreciate broadening my horizons to make me a better rounded person.
            Not the answer you were expecting, was it?

    You know, I'd like to invite white people to use the n-word more. It's so much less awkward than that moment when you someone you thought was cool turns out to be a frigging racist. And the truth is that no one is saying anyone can't say it, they're just saying you can't say it without people thinking you're a racist. Which, you know, you would be if you used that word.

        It is wrong to use this word no matter WHO says is, but one thing for sure, when a white man says the N word he is using it to dehumanize and destroy as they have always done historically. When one black says the N word to another black person, they are joking and taking the power out of it. A Mexican can call another Mexican a “wetback” in jest, but I am not stupid enough to try it. Hopefully, whites can learn something from their ugly past.

        • valorius

          how about blacks learn something from their ugly present….

          every six months in the us, blacks kill more blacks than the kkk killed in it's entire history.

          every three days in the us, blacks abort more black babies than the kkk killed blacks of all ages in it's entire history.

          you're worried about people using a word that blacks use literally every five seconds in conversation, but you ignore the self inflicted genocide your own people are perpetrating on your race on a daily basis.

          you're real smart.

          • Marie

            Valorius, Your facts are wrong according to the US census on abortions white woman in the U.S. between the age of 15-44 had 48k abortions while black woman in the same year had 9k abortions…(stop generalizing)…Next you need to check the U.S. census on what race receives the most welfare and food stamps, remember to include Corporate welfare in your stats. .

          • valorius

            lol, 9k abortions for a whole year for blacks huh?

            how about this-

            “According to 2010 census data, African Americans make up 12.6% of the U.S. population2 but the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that black women accounted for 35.4% of all abortions in 2009.3”

            try again my dear.

          • Marie

            Valorius, You are still wrong, your talking about per capita percentages of abortions and I am talking about actual abortions performed. Abortions performed on average are 48k for white woman 15-44 and 9k for black woman 15-44. The percentage of abortions for blacks is higher because they make up 13.1% of the population versus 77.9% for whites((2012).Per capita percentages don't negate the number of actual abortions performed.
            http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2012/tables/12s0101.pdf

          • valorius

            “Every day in America, an average of 3,315 human beings lose their lives to abortion.12 Based on the percentages above, between 683-829 of those babies are Hispanic, between 1,193-1,174 are white, and between 995-1,207 are black. Not only are black children being killed at a far greater percentage than white children, it's possible they're being killed in greater numbers, period. Is that not shocking?! Though the white population in the U.S. outnumbers the black population five to one, abortion may well be killing more black children each day than white children”

          • v m

            So what do you want? You want us to thank the KKK for not killing us at a faster rate? Black on black crime is a problem, but so is white on white crime. Drug abuse among whites especially in the Appalchias’ is at epidemic proportions and you are worried about the right to call blacks the n-word? Real smart!

          • valorius

            i have the right to call anyone anything i want…i'm not worried about the right, i'm merely reminding you that we all have that right.

            i live in killadelphia, i can assure you that drug abuse among blacks here and in all big ‘blue’ inner cities is beyond biblical in scale.

            the truth is that despite being but 14-17% of the population, blacks commit an overwhelming % of the violent crime in this nation…far out of proportion with their actual % of the population.

          • v m

            The truth is that poverty and crime goes hand in hand. That's why you have such high rates in the Appalachia. You think because Blacks have greater numbers that the somehow makes you sinless? That's like saying you don't stink as much because I'm chin deep in manure and your neck deep. The fact of the matter the whole USA is a violent society especially when compared to Europe. And no you don't have the moral right to call me whatever you want. Mans’ law may allow it, but we all have to answer to the Creator. Remember you reap what you sow.

          • valorius

            i'm poor in a lot of people's eyes. i've never stolen or robbed anything or anyone. i know a lot of poor people that don't steal or rob or commit crimes.

            I think bad upbringing and single parent homes as well as the group of kids you ‘run with’ contribute far more to this phenomenon.

            but what do i know, i only live in one of the most violent neighborhoods in one of the most violent cities in america. it is called killadelphia for a reason.

            google 19124 crime stats. that's the world i live in my friend. appalachia aint got nothing on good ole’ frankford philadelphia.

          • v m

            I do believe that environment and upbringing are major factors. I also believe that the abuse of free will is a major factor. Even when people have more than enough, greed and power also play a part. I know many people who come from strong stable two parent homes who choose the wrong path.)Since I'm poor (read: broke) , I don't believe poverty is an excuse to commit a crime, but it cannot be ignored that it is an incentive to do so. Why do you think government uprisings occur? Look at the 1917 Russian Revolution, the 1980 Iranian Revolution et ales. People don't topple governments if they have the necessities in life.

          • valorius

            i wont deny being poor is a factor, but my contention is that it's overblown. i have known lots of rich white college kids that got strung out on drugs and commited their fair share of crimes.

            madoff certainly was never broke.

          • v m

            My comment essentially agrees w/you. I honestly don't know if the influence of poverty on crime is overblown. Re: Madoff he was named right because he MADE OFF w/ all of the money!

            oh…and parts of England are far, far more violent than the US. Same for Paris and other ‘glamorous’ Euro cities. google it.

          • v m

            If you compare say Brixton, England agst. Beverly Hills then yes! But if you were to compare a seemingly safe neighborhood in the US to one in the UK, the US crime rate would be higher Also, the US murder rate (14,612) vastly outpaces the whole UK murder rate (722) and other European countries (see the UNODC 2012 Report).

          • valorius

            in the uk violent assaults have gone through the roof since they banned guns. last i checked, it was up 700% in that time frame.

          • v m

            Per The ONS (Office of Nat'l Statistics) CSEW showed no statistically significant change in the levels of violence (the apparent 8 per cent decrease was not statistically significant) based on interviews in the year ending June 2012 compared with the previous year (Tables 5a and 5b). The latest CSEW estimates show there were just below 2 million violent incidents in England and Wales, and that levels have been fairly stable since the 2007/08 survey (Figure 4).lower. and there police officers still don't carry guns last time Also it should be noted that that the UK has a much broader definition of violent crimes: for example, they include burglaries as a violent crime whereas the US classifies that in another category under property crime. Also, In addition to murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault and burglary, England and Wales classify domestic violence and all sexual offenses – not just forcible rape – as violent. In England and Wales, sexual offenses and domestic violence contain a wide range of offenses and make up a significant part of the overall number of their violent crimes. Sexual offenses include rape, sexual assault, sexual activity with children, soliciting prostitutes (but not prostitution itself), sexual threats, sexual touching and indecent exposure. Domestic abuse, described as a form of “intimate personal violence,” includes the following: non-sexual emotional or financial abuse, threats, physical force, sexual assault and stalking carried out by a current or former partner or other family member.
            Several other crimes that are classified as violent in the U.K. include vehicle theft, purse-snatching and bicycle theft.

            Since when did the use of the N-word become an issue of rights? I'm still not understanding how this relates to the article. I don't think anyone needs a reminder of having the right to use derogatory names. Regardless of the point trying to be made, its just bad taste. If you have a problem with the issues in Philadelphia, perhaps it is wise to involve yourself in being apart of the solution. So many people complain, or enjoys “reminding” others of negativity. NO one seems interested in positive change.

          • valorius

            the 1st amendment allows all americans to use any word they want.

            it always has, it always will.

            by the way, the word is nigger. or nigga.

            Since you cant seem to figure out how to type it out. we cannot have an honest conversation when people are afraid to even spell out the word in question.

          • Markus Blacc

            Think about the violence in Africa…the violent past of American toward African slaves. All our race has known is violence and like a product of our environment people are surprised that we act in such a manner. Like parents that don't understand their children or why they behave as they do yet you spend all your time with them from birth until at least 13. Ten years isn't long enough to understand something, I could be a doctor and get a major in less time.

          • valorius

            so youre blaming the white man because black kings sold blacks to white dutch slave traders?

            how about the african egyptians that enslaved MILLIONS for millenia before the white man even knew how to build a boat that could get to africa?

            you are your own biggest problem because you cannot own up to the sins of your own fathers.

            lol when u state that “blacks” commite the most crime in this nation shows me how smart u really are man which is to say not at all when ignorent people like u place colour with despicable thing such as murder robbery etc… instead of saying lets just say that oh gee maybe that theirs just some bad people out there that do this. but no u go and blame it on the majority of this god forsaken nation and you demonize them and insult them by bassically saying that we know what u do we know what you are because your neighbor thats the same colour as you commited this crime so you must be exactly like him maybe if you say look man i know your a good race but there are some bad apples in your group and we need to solve that. and no you cannot say what you please because i promise you if you try to call a black man a nigger not only black people would beat your ass but also white people would as well please rejoin the 21st century and stop your hatefull mindset and grow up

            i'm pretty sure i said per capita, as a % of the population.

            which is a fact.

            i call blacks niggas every day, right after they greet me with, ‘whats up my nigga?’

            why? Because nigga is not a racial term. i live in the hood….do you?

          • valorius

            just look at this data-

            there is no hate in the word nigga.

            “Blacks kill more blacks than the KKK ever did
            By James Causey of the Journal Sentinel (who is also black)

            Documentary filmmaker Sixx King is black and he's tired of black-on-black violence so he wanted to do something proactive to make a statement.

            So he put on a KKK outfit with a white hood and stood in public in Philadelphia to draw attention to an issue that the black community has not been able to solve – black men killing black men at record numbers.

            This is not just a Philadelphia problem, this is a problem in most large urban populations. Last year, Chicago reported more than 500 homicides, and most involved black men killed by black men.

            In Milwaukee County, of the 101 homicide victims in 2012, 71 were black males, according to the Milwaukee County medical examiner's office.

            King, 35, is tired and I am, too. While wearing the costume, he had a sign saying that black violence kills more blacks than the Klan ever has. Sixx said in 2011 more than 7,000 black people were killed; he said the KKK killed 3,446 blacks in 86 years.

            Black-on-black murders surpass the number of people killed by the KKK every six months.

            I know a number of blacks and some whites who will find what King did offensive. I understand that, but ask yourself this question: What do you see black politicians doing about the issue? I mostly hear crickets.

            Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Thornton said last year that he was appalled by the silence and lack of outrage after several MPS students were killed.

            King is bringing awareness to the black hypocrisy of being complacent when we know we have a problem and we are doing little to address it. We can talk about jobs all we want, and yes, high unemployment is a problem. But blacks have been poor for a long time and we didn't kill each other at the rate that we are doing now.

            This is not a gun problem; this is a societal problem that needs to be addressed, and our black leaders, churches, families, youth and schools should be demanding change.

          • Markus Blacc

            Valorius, Your facts are wrong according to the US census on abortions
            white woman in the U.S. between the age of 15-44 had 48k abortions while
            black woman in the same year had 9k abortions…(stop
            generalizing)…Next you need to check the U.S. census on what race
            receives the most welfare and food stamps, remember to include Corporate
            welfare in your stats.

          • valorius

            i didnt generalize, i posted exact statistics.

            black women have 9k abortions a WEEK in the US.

          • valorius

            by the way, corporations are in essence a group of shareholders. shareholders can be any color. many shareholders are black. corporations only care about one color…green.

          • valorius

            while whites will obviously collect the most in sheer numbers, due to their national majority, per capita, the exact opposite is true.

            in my city, where blacks ARE the outright majority, blacks collect welfare and foodstamps at a much higher rate in both categories.

            my reasoning is that this has been caused by the democratic party enslaving the black voting block with handouts designed to keep them dependent on the system and the democrats.

            it is what it is. stop living in denial. it's not just a river in africa.

            ps- i am an independent.

            No, “blacks” don't think that. But thanks for making my point for me.

          • valorius

            your point is utterly invalidated by the blatant hypocrisy you're displaying in this thread.

          • janegray

            Sure, because you don't like what I have to say. That's cool, you're not the only one and you are far from the first. Luckily, I don't actually care.

          • valorius

          They also call Blacks Niggers through action lets not forget too

        • Dezera Page

          I agree. All of this talk of percentage of race first how do we really know? And frankly what difference does it make? It is what a person culturally identifies with, usually the group that accepts them more which is why the 1 drop of black blood means your black “rule” that came from white society not blacks because they would not accept a child at all of mixed heritage. So that is where that comes from. But the point was all of you talking about blacks being 12% of the population you better start looking at Latinos who have surpassed blacks and Asians are coming up fast. You ad those groups together as we do when we talk about minorities they are set to be the MAJORITY in twenty years. That is what you are failing to see. You keep focusing on one group when its those three groups together that have more similar experiences in America and tend to vote for people that have those issues in heart. So a party that isn't paying attention to that will fade away like the federalists in the 1800's. That was homeboy's point. So they need to diversify their point of view if the plan to be a party that means anything in the future. America is becoming that true melting point that it said it was. The browning of America.

        Because they are black. Because it was used to demoralize African-Americans. The best way to overcome is to turn a positive into a negative and when people abuse their power, it is taken away…except in America since white people feel they should be allowed to say it.

        • Kenneth Edward Polley

          “Except in America since white people feel they should be allowed to say it.” Are you implying a White men shouldn't be allowed to say it, but a colored boy should?

          • janegray

            Why would a white man want to?

          • Kenneth Edward Polley

            The question of why is irrelevant, you would have as many answers as the number of people you asked. Are you folks implying a white man should not be allowed to use a word but a colored boy should? Is that what you are implying?

          • janegray

            No it's not. Why would a white man want or need to say it? What is your answer to that question?

            And I haven't “impiled” anything. I said it pretty flat out.

          • Kenneth Edward Polley

            Lets start with, because I want to say it! Now are you saying a colored boy should be allowed to say that word without consequences but a white man shouldn't be able to? Why are you afraid to answer that question?

          • janegray

            I already did, I pointed you right at a comment with all the explanation you could want, but you didn't read it because you're too busy being butthurt. I'm sorry racists ruined it for you, but there's little to be done about it now. You might as well man up and accept what's been done and move on.

          • Kenneth Edward Polley

            And you need to accept the I and every other white person can say what we want, and you liberals can't do a damn thing about it! And if you believe a colored boy should be able to do something and a white man shouldn't, based solely on skin color, well that makes you a discriminating racist doesn't it?

      • Markus Blacc

        Also like that you chose some of our more wealthier African-American representatives. #DemocraticEra

      • janegray

        That's a more complicated issue, which Elayssandria explained to you. Assuming, of course, that you care, but judging from the derisive tone of your response, I suspect you're too busy being butthurt that you can't say the n-word.

        • Kenneth Edward Polley

          So are colored people racist or not if they say that word? Just answer the question! And I say the N word whenever or wherever I feel like!

          • janegray

            No. And be my guest, I don't actually care as much as you'd like. In fact, I'd like to encourage you to do so, it will save a lot of people a lot of time.

    • valorius

      i use the word on a nearly daily basis among my many black holme boys (you know, my niggas) and my beautiful black dates. they call me their nigga too, “hey whats up rock star, my nigga!”

      the word nigga is not racist at all, it means about a million different things, from friend, to dude, to enemy, to anything. it is a catch all phrase in modern urban america.

      • A.L.

        And that's the problem, using ignorance of history to justify using a derogatory word as a term of endearment. While even though the intention is good, many misunderstand the pain and anger behind it. Being Black is not an excuse.

        • A.L.

          Changing the variance of the word is an example of that ignorance.

        • valorius

          the flip side of that coin would be that if you can take a negative word and turn it into a neutral word it's a good thing.

          it would probably be best if no one used the word, but that is obviously not going to happen. the term nigga is utterly imbedded in modern black culture.

      • janegray

        No, it's not. You can call your friends whatever you want, but don't think that everyone is going to be okay with that. The problem is that everyone thinks that black people all think and do the same things and that's not true and never has been. And, frankly, I don't know how you can think they do with so many black BBFs.

        • valorius

          i would no more call a random black on the street a nigga than they would call me a cracka.

          however, if greeting by a black with something like, ‘whats up ma nigga’ (very common), i will respond in kind.

          why? again…because the word nigga is not a racial word, it just means dude.

          • janegray

            Okay.

    • Luci Widnesor

      On principle I do not agree with censored speech – I think people should be free to use any word they want and take the consequences for rudeness. The problem is liberals want to pick and choose which words are a cause for outrage and which ones are acceptable – sometimes even allowing themselves to use words that are a no-no to the opposition.
      As for your invitation to use the “N” word – I don't, not because of liberals, selective outrage, etc, etc, but because it is rude, vulgar, low class and shows you don't have a good character or a good vocabulary.

      • janegray

        LOL Liberals don't “pick and choose” anything, words that are used to denigrate people cause outrage, that doesn't have as much to do with ~Liberals~ as you'd like to pretend.

    Let's do an inventory of what Don Yelton eats, how he has earned money over the past 40 years, ALL of his habits, so the American people can decide whether or not he is lazy and if he should simply be called “Cracker Yelton” and removed from any and all voter rolls for past crimes against US democracy.

    It was funny because Aasif just kind of looks at him incredulously and says “you DO realize this is being RECORDED…right???”

  • InterestingStory

    He has a point about one thing. I will never understand why one race of people use one negative word towards each other and think it is non-racial term.

    • v m

      why do white people want to say the word in the first place? Blacks say it so as to empower themselves and say N-a thus not negative, while whites say n-er w/ that racial history. How many times have blacks been killed, assaulted, raped for being “just a n-er” by whites? Whites used the n-word to dehumanize. Secondly, I own this body, therefore I determine who gets to call me what. We all use that same autonomy as to who calls us what based on our own discriminating preferences: e.g. pet names where only close friends, spouses, and relatives get to call us. Our bodies are not community property. That man Yelton had no right to say it. Noticed how he only called the blacks lazy and on welfare. This man is a racist. To quote one black comedian who said, “with centuries of slavery and Jim Crow, whites have used up their right to use the n-word”.

      • Kenneth Edward Polley

        So you think you is allowed to tell others what they can say? In what World do you live in, you don't control what I say, what makes you think that you do?

        • v m

          I have a better question: what world do you live in where you think you can call people something that they don't want to be called by you? Treat me the way that you would want to be treated. Would you want me to call you a name that you wouldn't wish me to use? If there is a particular pet/nickname that you only reserve for certain people? Why do you only allow them and not others to use it? What right do you have to prevent me from using it when referring to you? Just like I don't own you, you don't own me, and if I don't want to be called a name by you I have that same right. My body is not community property; I hold autonomy over it not YOU! But if you want to offend people (w/whatever name) go ahead but know that in this crazy world there are crazy people to deliver the consequences.

          • Kenneth Edward Polley

            The point is, words are words, and If I call you a name you don't like, there isn't a damn thing you can do about it! It's called free speech!

          • v m

            No, the point is words aren't just words. Just like the word Nazi isn't just a word to a Jewish person especially a holocaust survivor. As I stated, the n-word, was used by certain whites to carry out the heinous crimes of lynching, rape, assault, et ales. If a person “was just a n-er”, then that impressed upon the assailant that the victim wasn't a person, but subhuman. Therefore, not deserving of basic human rights and dignity. Remember, the Jim Crow laws were meant to keep “n-ers in their place” and “don't be an uppity n-er” . There was no such thing as a black man but a “boy”. Whites wouldn't call an older black man or woman: sir or mister, but uncle or aunt (don't ask me why this was deemed better). Because they were n-ers, they didn't deserve such titles of respect. Just remember it goes both ways: if someone uses a term when referring to you that you don't like: remember this conversation. It is after all free speech and there is nothing you will be able to do about it. You reap what you sow.

          • v m

            Just because your Roma, that doesn't diminish the sting of the word Nazi for other Roma and/or Jews. If that was the case, there wouldn't have been a Holocaust Museum in D.C. Under the name Nazi regime millions were killed, and today millions still flinch at the word Nazi.

          • valorius

            I'm a gypsy. Please save your PC terms for your letters to the editor of the Huffington Post.

            Anyone that flinches at the word Nazi needs to stop being afraid of the dark. The White man (in the form of the western allies and particularly the Russians) took care of our own business and wiped them out practically to the last man.

            The word Nazi doesn't bother me in the slightest. Neither does the word Gypsy. Or Mick. Or Cave Ape, or Cracka, or Blue eyed devil…or any other term you throw at me. they're just words.

            Letting these words bother you just empowers your would be tormentor.

          • v m

            If words, don't bother you than why did you correct me on the use of Roma? Why didn't you just ignore it? As far as Roma being PC, I didn't realize that it was. I thought gypsy and Roma were interchangeable. The Nazis are alive and well here in the US, Germany, and now Russia (ya, I can't believe it either). Seems the dark is coming alive.

          • valorius

            because i dont want people ‘dumbing down’ what they're trying to say because they're afraid they'll hurt my feelings.

            PC really pisses me off.

          • v m

            Again you are being upset over a word (regardless for of your reasoning). You are clearly contradicting yourself. PC seems to be about wording, which according to you words shouldn't hurt. It's also about my 2nd amendment right to use such words and there is nothing you can do about it to stop me. but because it offends YOU, I won't be using it anymore as it pertains to you. In my opinion, maliciously offending some one is such a waste of energy and adds nothing to my moral cache.

          • valorius

            I am not offended by the word ‘roma', i am offended by the spineless sissies that would attempt to alter reality in order to ‘feel warm and fuzzy’ about themselves and the world they live in. as if changing a word has any real world effect on anything.

            IT's the perpetrators of PCism that i despise, not the words they substitute.

          • v m

            Again, PC is about wording, if it wasn't a problem you wouldn't have been vocal about it. According to you, Roma is just a word’ and words can't hurt. Of course I feel differently Again, you wouldn't have spent any time on the discussion if the word was irrelevant. but because it comes from a PC place. you don't want me to use it when referring to you. Sort of like Blacks who don't want whites to use the n-word, because of the racist (history) place it came from. Are you understanding now the poinst I've been trying to make? Also, what is spineless about being considerate of the feelings of others? It seems to me that the verbal bullying that the masses have subjected on each other is what is spineless. It is so easy to give into peer pressure to follow the crowd than it is to stand up and defend others (especially if the bullying is from family members) It seems to me that if people weren't so eager to offend, then PC would be a moot point. The way I see it, we could use a “warm and fuzzy world” the cold and harsh one is not working! Offending people has become 1st nature to this world to the detriment of mankind especially re: children.

          • valorius

            again, what offends me is the mindset of PCism, not the words themselves.

            You don't have to understand or agree with me, but i'm telling you the truth in why i feel as i do. :)

            And what upsets me is the mindset of the use of the n-er by whites. That word represents their mindset/history they feel towards blacks, like Yelton.. Just like Roma represents the mindset of PCism. Why do you allow yourself the luxury of treating w/disdain a word, the concept behind it, and in no uncertain terms immediately admonish me about the usage,but then doggedly attack blacks, like myself, when we do the same thing re: the n-word? I'm being truthful.

            words dont bother me, and even if they did, i would not allow my would be attacker the power over me that using said words would give him.

            Slavery is the “N” word as well as Blackface in my opinion. harassing people for the color of their skin because they are darker will create fearful emotions.

          • v m

            I'm not sure I'm following your point. For some (blacks), the n-word is sell-imposed imprisonment .i.e. slavery, thus they don't use it; but for other blacks, the usage is likened to opening the jail doors, getting off the plantation, and telling ‘massa’ I own this body from here on in. Again, the use of the n-word, among blacks, is not one size fits all.

          • Trish Chasity

            Whites in general want to be given permission to use the N word openly. However they have used it for centuries in more ways than one through actions than in words. That is what I mean…

          • v m

            I reread your clarifying response to me and I have to agree w/most of what you are saying. I don't celebrate Halloween so in general costumes don't phase me. I think regardless whether it's Halloween or some random costume party compassion and common sense needs to be exercised. Re” TM/GZ, I have a problem w/it because they are making light of a serious situation (the murder of TM) just like someone dressing up like a Nazi or Hitler e.g. Prince Harry and his Hitler costume some years back. Because England suffered heavy losses during WW2 especially London during the BLITZ, he should have known better. Re: JH. (J. Hough). I don't watch the show, but I am familiar w/the controversy. I don't have a problem w/it because it wasn't like she was doing an Al Jolson like minstrel show costume and behavior: exaggerated features, jiving and shucking behavior etc. She was paying honest homage to the character w/o malice or ridicule;she and her friends were all impersonating the show's characters. I feel the controversy was unwarranted and media contrived. Just like w/ Billy Crystal and his Sammy Davis Jr. impersonation (which I love) at the Oscar's, he was not doing anything exaggerated, but paying honest tribute to the late Sammy Davis Jr. If he came out w/ exaggerated features like Al Jolson then it would have been a different story. I was on another website when MSN reported on the so-called ‘controversy', all the black commenters (including myself) were in Billy Crystal's corner and chided the media for stirring up problems. The controversy came from the media and not from any blacks. Discernment needs to be used.

          • v m

            Actually I do. I also read a lot of comments (from whites) complaining about the name calling e.g. like you). And even if I didn't, I don't remember signing a contract saying that I'm going to do or not do what white people do.

          • valorius

            and i dont remember signing a contract with you to only use words you approve of.

            furthermore- i'm not complaining- i am drawing parallels.

          • v m

            True, you didn't sign a contract. However, just because you have the legal right and ability to do something doesn't necessarily translate into a moral right. You don't have the moral right to call me a name I don't want to be called; it's called common courtesy and human decency. I own this body, not you. If I, as an individual, am not disrespecting you why disrespect me? Re: parallels those derogatory insults that blacks hurled at whites e.g. blue-eyed devil et ales, where in retaliation from the centuries of persecution: slavery, segregation, police brutality, names calling from whites etc. I'm not excusing it (there is no excuse for malicious name calling no matter who it is from). Remember violence (be it verbal &/or physical) begets violence. This chaotic world is a prime example.

          • valorius

            so your argument is ‘whites started it first?’

            But whites didn't start it first…all humans came from Africa, and slavery has existed since the dawn of man. It is an African invention.

            Africans (ie egyptians and nubians) were enslaving their fellow man by the millions when whites were still one step removed from drawing on cave walls.

            afterall, we're just a bunch of ‘cave apes,’ right?

          • v m

            I don't believe in Evolution: Cavemen etc. I believe the earliest evidence of known slavery was the “Code of Ur-Nammu” which detailed the law code of the people including the slave class(circa: 2100 BCE – 2050 BCE ) It was Sumerian later to be known as Babylonian (which would be Modern Iraq). Per Wikipedia, studies have shown that 80% of white Europeans people can trace their dna to that region. So in a word yes, whites started it. Life may have started in Africa, but slavery didn't.

          • valorius

            The middle east is spitting distance from africa, and people from the middle east are most certainly not white.

            i'm really surprised you don't believe in evolution…

          • v m

            Just because something is geographically close doesn't mean they share the same dna. The Iberian Peninsula is approx. 500+ miles from Africa, yet the inhabitants are classified as white. As far as Evolution, remember it's classified as a theory. Everything re: creation points to an “Intelligent Designer”. I need to point out that I don't believe in Creationism i.e. that the earth is only six thousand years old that's not valid; the earth is clearly billions of years old.

          • valorius

            “The world embarrasses me, and I cannot dream that this watch exists and has no watchmaker.” Voltaire

            Evolution has been proven over and over again in the laboratory with observations of micro-organisms and insects. Now i can see one quibbling as to whether or not ‘natural selection of random mutation’ is what's actually at play, or if there is a deliberately designed system by which those mutations occur, but to say evolution is not proven is wildly incorrect. I am not an atheist, i think atheists hold an unprovable position, but i am definitively and firmly an agnostic.

            it is simply beyond mankinds ability to know or, probably even to comprehend, what the creator is.

            further, scientific theories such as M theory predict that there is a multiverse of infinite parallel universes, whereupon ever possible eventuality is reality in an infinite fraction of said universes.

            To me, a guy in a lab in a parallel universe creating a micro universe where we dwell is as reasonable a possibility as a guy sitting on a cloud with a hippy son named jesus who let the romans murder him ‘for my sins.’

            it will be interesting once artificial intelligence is finally realized, and the first ‘living machine’ is ‘born.’

            At that time, the answer as to whether or not life can be deliberately created will have been definitively been answered, and the machine will have the benefit of knowing his god- us. Hopefully he is grateful enough for his life that he doesn't decide to enslave or outright kill us all. ;)

            There are no whites in the Middle east unless they were transplanted there from somewhere else…the same is true for africa. Slavery has existed in Egypt and in the dead empire of Nubia for thousands and thousands of years. Long before any white ever ‘returned to roost.’

            Slavery is a human invention, not owned by any one race. we all have dirty hands in that regard.

          • v m

            I agree that slavery is a human construct and that we all have dirty hands. That line of thought is in harmony w/Ecclesiastes 8:9 which states “that man has dominated man to his own harm”. While the Nubian empire had existed for thousands of years, there were no known records that slavery existed before the above mentioned the Code of Ur-Nammu, which is the oldest known record of slavery. Also, the Nubian civilization is not the oldest civilization; that designation belongs to The Sumerian later known as Babylon (now Modern Iraq);that's why Iraq is known as the cradle of civilization. Re: whether Iraqis are considered white here is a direct quote from Wikipedia ,”Studies have reported that most Irish and Britons are descendants of farmers who left modern day Iraq and Syria 10,000 years ago.[38] Genetic researchers say they have found compelling evidence that four out of five (80% of) white Europeans can trace their roots to the Near East.[38] In another study, scientists analyzed DNA from the 8,000 year-old remains of early farmers found at an ancient graveyard in Germany. They compared the genetic signatures to those of modern populations and found similarities with the DNA of people living in today's Turkey and Iraq.[39]” Just because a person doesn't have white skin doesn't mean they aren't of the Caucasoid family: East Indians, Iranians, Turks, these groups like the Celts are part of the Indo-European Family. Also, here in the U.S., people from the Middle East are classified as white. DEFINITION OF WHITE USED IN THE 2010 US CENSUS: According to OMB, “White” refers to a person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. The White racial category includes people who marked the “White” checkbox. It also includes respondents who reported entries such as Caucasian or White; European entries, such as Irish, German, and Polish; Middle Eastern entries, such as Arab, Lebanese, and Palestinian; and North African entries, such as Algerian, Moroccan, and Egyptian.”
            Middle Easterners are considered white by Anthropologists due to bone structure.

            Again Re: Evolution if it is a fact then why is it classified as a theory or theories? Because there is no evidence of an intermediary process. Almost every so-called “missing link” that's been discovered has proven to be either a hoax (e.g. Piltdown man) or later the remains of animals: in the book: Lucy: The Beginnings of Humankind, the authors claims a shrewlike rodent is said to be an ancestor of man but there is no fossil evidence of such a relationship. Re: Lucy(Australopithecus) ( per Wikipedia) “There are numerous questions and doubts surrounding the classification of Lucy as a human ancestor. Lucy has curved fingers and toes (suited to a tree limb climbing lifestyle), stood less than 4 feet tall (more similar to current ape species), and has head, jaw, and teeth dimensions far more related to known ape species than any known human-related species. Additionally, analysis of the hip bone by Charles E. Oxnard revealed the hip bone would have supported only temporary upright walking, such as what can be observed by ape species today.[28] Doubters of the evolutionary evidence of Lucy to humans use this evidence to claim that Lucy is more likely an extinct species of ape.” Also, According to Richard Leakey, who along with Johanson is probably the best-known fossil-anthropologist in the world, Lucy’s skull is so incomplete that most of it is ‘imagination made of plaster of paris’.1 Leakey even said in 1983 that no firm conclusion could be drawn about what species Lucy belonged to. , Everything that Scientists have “discovered” is pure conjecture, and what they do find points to immediate creation. Newsweek once stated: “the missing link between man and the apes… is merely the most glamorous of a whole hierarchy of phantom creature. In the fossil record, missing links are the rule.” Science Digest stated: “the lack of missing link to explain the relatively sudden appearance of modern man.” When you see those pictures of the supposed different evolutionary stages of man, this is what the illustrator/artist is told to make based on the on his idea or suggestion of said scientist. “The vast majority of artists’ conceptions are based more on imagination than on evidence. . . . Artists must create something between an ape and a human being; the older the specimen is said to be, the more apelike they make it.”—Science Digest, April 1981, p. 41. Also this quote, “The flesh and hair on such reconstructions have to be filled in by resorting to the imagination. . . . Skin color; the color, form, and distribution of the hair; the form of the features; and the aspect of the face—of these characters we know absolutely nothing for any prehistoric men.”—The Biology of Race (New York, 1971), James C. King, pp. 135, 151. Again Evolution is called a Theory (or should I say theories) not a fact. Plus, even among the Scientific community there are varying disputes over which Evolutionary theory is fact.Re: Evolution if it is a fact then why is it classified as a theory or theories?

Again Evolution is called a Theory (or should I say theories) not a fact. when reading about the evolution of microbial and others such theories, notice how the word if or probable are used. Again theories not fact. They are asserting that life came into its own not w/intelligent design. Louis Pastuer did an experiment w/just sterilized water and claimed that the theory of spontaneous generation was dealt a mortal blow. No experiment has ever produced life from nonliving matter. The Bible in the book of Genesis (Chapter 1), while not a science textbook does explain the logical order in which the earth and life was created. Please note: when God used the word “day” he clearly using it to refer to as a time period of untold aeons not 24 hour day. Just like a person would say, “in my grandfather's day” not meaning 24 hours, but his grandfather's lifetime. Day in the Bible can be a period of varying lengths be it 24 hours or thousand upon thousands of years i.e. aeons.

          • valorius

            I agree that whites once dwelled there, but through evolution due to geographic variances, they changed in skin tone and other features like eye color, hair type, etc.

            Hence whites being considered caucasian, and middle easterners being considered middle eastern, each their own distinct race.

            A simple look at a modern Iraqi and a modern white will quickly confirm that they are two distinct races.

          • v m

            Yes, but that's on a superficial cosmetic level. It's not about looks. It's about dna. Look at the Mediterranean people: the Greeks, Spaniards, Italians, Romanians, all of them share predominately olive skin tone, brown eyes, hirsute just like the Iraqis and Iranians. Again it's about dna, skeletal, and just cosmetics. I had a college friend who was Mediterranean descent (She was Italian and Greek I believe and she was being recruited by the C.I.A (she was a language and criminal justice major. She had a look that could pass for Middle Eastern and European. With her universal look and skill set, she was a valued recruit. I don't think she accepted the offer espionage wasn't her thing.

          • valorius

            the reason those people share olive skin is because of muslim invasions into europe which resulted in mass rapes of white women.

            there is a very famous scene in the movie true romance where dennis hopper and christopher walken discuss this very issue. :D

            the muslims never made it past tours or transylvania, hence northern europeans are still ‘white as snow.’

        • v m

          Maybe not for you. But for other individuals (emphasis individuals) it's a totally different mindset. In their mind, a negative connotation has been amended and adopted as something to be proud of; e.g. the word Black in the pre-60's was something to be despised by African-American, but when the Civil Rights movement came w/”Black Power” blackness wasn't something to be despised but embraced. For many black individuals the n-a word was amended and embraced as a sense of positive power, and brotherhood, and courage e.g. the hip-hop group: NWA To reiterate: for you, that is not your case, but for others it is. Words and their conations are constantly changing; language is not static. For example, the word terrific at what time use to mean something bad or frightening now it means something wonderful or great. The amending of the word (and usage) of n-word is obviously following that same suit.

Secondly, no, the president didn't say it, but you do hear other white people like you and your so-called white leaders decrying the crime. As President Obama once stated on ‘The Charlie Rose Show” (when questioned why he referred to himself as black and not biracial), he stated that if he were to hail a taxi all the taxi driver would see is a black man and not a biracial man. That would be the same of Trayvon Martin. Obama's son (had he had one) would have had that same experience of racial profiling as Trayvon would have (and millions of blacks especially the black men). That white teacher would not have suffered the same racial profiling. AL Sharpton and Jessie Jackson were decrying the no arrest of George Zimmerman, who was allowed for weeks to run free of the murder of Trayvon Martin. Whereas the black boy that murdered that poor teacher, he was IMMEDIATLY imprisoned. You also don't hear Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson protesting the arrest. Also, the NRA and others gave George Zimmerman their support.

I asked one of them why use the word as one of them and their said “It's a word we have made our own by changing it and letting people know that this generation of blacks aren't the helpless n-er of our grandparents who had to bow their heads and stay in their place.” As you can probably guess as evidenced by the fact I don't completely spell either n-words(-er or -a) I don't use either words: it's not me, but I understand now why some blacks use it.

          • valorius

            If you say it's a word of empowerment i'm not going to quibble with you, to me it's just an urban term for ‘dude', that's how it's used.

            Blacks call me their nigga all the time, and i call them the same when greeted in such a manner. I am very popular with the blacks in my neighborhood.

            In fact i got fired from the bartending job i had last winter because the racist old white owner told me i was bringing in too many blacks, and she didn't want that crowd.

            Imagine that…she's so racist that she hated blacks more than she liked money.

          • v m

            Ya, I can imagine it. When it comes to hatred, the only color that matters is your own. I've been called a “white lover” by my family and others because I don't tolerate racial hatred. Certain whites get mad at me for defending Jews ( I hate the term JAP). I think racism is one of the many blights on humanity. Your being friends w/blacks (and other ethnic groups) would help you should you decide to go into business for yourself.

          • valorius

            So you're one of them there “uncle toms” (or is it auntie thomasita?)

            Certain members of my family call me a nigger lover. They're ignorant, they can go f themselves, i live my life for me, not for them. :)

          • v m

            No, I'm not an “Aunt Jemima”. I'm a true Christian who believes that “Loving your neighbor as yourself” applies to the whole of mankind, not just what's appeals to your comfort zone. I refuse to hate anyone even the KKK. I hate “HATE”. I live to please my God. It's funny when growing up, my black cousins (who lived in Boston) and siblings would make fun of the way I talked; I talked “white” (when I mean ‘talking white” it wasn't standard/proper English, but more of the white-Irish blue-collar vernacular. Just because a person is white doesn't necessarily mean they speak standard English, I used the slang of the neighborhood). At that time, my town was only 10% nonwhite. Now every single one of those so-called “Black Power” cousins have dated or are dating white people. Talk abut hypocrisy! I was always the ‘odd bird”. In college, I hung o/w/everyone. I detest cliques. I especially loved the foreign students, while the Americans (of every ethnic group) despised them. They didn't recognize the potential for enrichment these friendships could bring to their lives. Humans can be so sad.

          • valorius

            im still the only one in my family that has dated a black (i date black women almost exclusively). i doubt that'll be changing any time soon.

            my 14yo nephew will probably be the next one to ‘go black', lol….he is not racist at all.

          • v m

            If the hypocrisy and or flighty nature of the human race (especially as it pertains to family) is an indicator, it might be sooner then you think! One minute they say no, next minute they meet their “soul mate” and start spouting, “love has no color”. Trust me I've seen it!

        • janegray

          So. White people want to use the n-word for no other reason than because of the First Amendment? You do realize that a. the First Amendment is a two way street and you don't actually have the right to unchallenged speech and b. the First Amendment does not protect what are known as fighting words. If a Bob walks up to Mike and tells him his mother is a whore and Mike clocks Bob in the face, Bob doesn't have much recourse because he said something that any person with any common sense would know might result in getting clocked in the face.

          • valorius

            If mike clocks bob in the face, bob just commited simple assault…bob is a criminal.

      • valorius

        well black on black crime rates seem to indicate very few blacks have been taught that same lesson.

        • v m

          And white on white crime shows they feel the same way. Not only when it comes to violence, embezzlement (Enron) but also Ponzis’ schemes (Bernie Madoff).

          • valorius

            white on white crime tends to be less ‘gun in your face’ and more ‘white collar’ type, but i do agree, someone like madoff can destroy far more lives than the guy shooting liquor store clerks or knocking over 7 elevens.

            trust me though, i know plenty of white junkies and scum bags.

            i defend blacks constantly when im amongst racist whites, because in some ways blacks get an unfair rap. but i also see that in some ways, blacks have enormous problems as a race, and the fact that anytime anyone brings it up sharpton et al scream racism it surely does not help at all.

          • v m

            As Wanda Sykes once said she rather mugged of her change then mugged of her future (like Bernie Madoff and Enron) . Although I'm an idealist and believe it doesn't have to be either. You talk about “blacks making it about race” and then in the same breath refer to racists whites. Do you realize the contradiction? Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson wouldn't have a job if those racist whites didn't exist (like the above Yelton). There was a study that was done between Blacks and Whites of the same socio-economic class (read: white-collar and upper middle class). Yet, the blacks suffered more health problems (stress, anxiety) as far as I remember none were obese. They couldn't understand the difference. The only thing they could pinpoint was: racism was the cause. I don't always believe it's about race, but I'm not going to automatically dismiss the possibility.

    • v m

          • v m

            First of all, I don't let it visibly show or dwell on it. However, my mother and late grandmother (she was 105 years old; she died this year) lived through Jim Crow (they are from the South). My great-grandparents were slaves It's not just the word, but the literal pain inflicted behind it. Valorius, my people died for being “just a n-word”; it was a rite of passage or Friday night sport for some whites to rape “a n-word”. My mother told me stories how white men would force a black women out of the house to gang rape her; if she didn't come out, then they would lynch her husband, father, and burn the house down. Sometimes they did it anyway. It's not just a word.

          • valorius

            The 2nd amendment exists for a reason v m.

            Sometimes it's better to die free and on your feet than live in a nightmare.

            I've fought 3 white guys just for calling my woman a nigger. because while names don't bother me, it bothered her.

            Pepper spray…it works awesome. :D

          • v m

            Yes, and a human conscious also exists for a reason. How is going out of your way to offend another human uplifting the human race? What I described in my previous comment, impacted whole families(men, women, children). These atrocities were carried o/because they were “only n-word”. Again the 2nd amemd. doesn't allow for “fire” to be yelled w/impunity in a public place. It's not just a word. You will never understand, Valorius. If it were, your woman wouldn't have been hurt and you wouldn't have felt it necessary to defend her honor.

          • valorius

            im trying to show people that words cannot harm you, just like mom said…sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can never harm you.

            allowing words to harm you only empowers those that would seek to do you harm to begin with.

          • v m

            But that isn't true. Among many of those who have suffered sexual abuse, a common comment they said that the verbal abuse was if not more worse but just as worse. Those are scars that never seem to heal. If words didn't hurt, then we wouldn't even have the term verbal abuse. To reiterate, If your woman wasn't hurt by those words you wouldn't have reacted. It had an emotional ricochet affect: they, the racists, called your woman the n-word, she was hurt, and you reacted all of this from a word. So words do hurt just ask any victim of verbal abuse.

          • valorius

            what i'm saying is that we choose to allow words to harm us.

            you could call me every name in the book right now, it would just amuse me.

            trust me, i have my share of haters. i always say they make me famous. ;)

          • v m

            I called you one word “Roma” and you quickly admonished me to erase the word o/of the book. You weren't amused.

          • valorius

            i was not amused by the attempt to remove the term gypsy as if it did not exist, because you were afraid you'd hurt someone's feelings.

            if you cannot see the distinction, there is little point in us going round and round on this point. :)

          • v m

            I'll also make this my last comment re: Roma/gypsy. 1st.) It had nothing to do w/ hurting your feelings because I never gave it a conscious thought as to whether your feelings would be hurt by the use of either gypsy or Roma. As I stated before I thought Roma/Gypsy were interchangeable words w/no thought to it being pc because I never heard of it being pc. I never thought to use Roma to erase the word gypsy; I honestly never knew it made a difference. 2nd)You were the one who brought it to my attention and admonished me for using said word: Roma. My point being regardless of it being PC or not according to your philosophy re: words cannot hurt, if the word didn't hurt then you would have brushed it off regardless of the history (in this case PC) behind it. You would have ignored my usage and continued to use the word gypsy or to really prove your point (that words don't hurt) you could have used Roma, but you didn't. Therefore invalidating your argument re: words don't hurt. By the way, ALL words have a history be it pleasant, unpleasant, political, or nonpolitical etc. . I guess it depends which side of history you are on. R.I.P on this subject. Because I'm a generous person I'll give you two happy faces. :) :) LOL!

          • janegray

          • valorius

            The number of black women raped by white men in the US annually is actually very small. Blacks rape white women far, far, far more frequently.

            But according to Obama, if a white woman crosses the street or locks her doors as a black man approaches…she's wrong.

            Double standard?

            You betcha.

          • v m

            The 2nd Amendment wasn't considered for blacks. If those blacks defended themselves, do you think they would have received a fair trial? They probably would have been lynched while awaiting trial (if you want to call it that). It wasn't uncommon for the sheriff to have been a card carrying member of the KKK (if not the Grand Wizard himself). Also, the ramifications would have been not just for that family, but for the entire black community. Do you know how may black townships were burnt to the ground, because some attention starved white woman screamed rape (the m.o. was usually a teen or an old maid/spinster)? It's not as simplistic as you make it out to be. Look at those archival pictures of black men being lynched all because they were just a n-word. they would castrate the black men and literally sell the penises as a souvenir. White People would attend just like the Romans at a gladiator fight in the Coliseum. They use to frame black men so they could force them to work in the mines. As soon as they got out, then they would frame them again. I remember reading about how a black man was framed for a crime, and he and his pregnant wife escaped to another state. The white authorities were able to lure him back promising a fair trial. Well, as soon as the family came back, the jail was “mysteriously” left unattended and unlocked (sheriff and deputies were gone). A mob came and lynched and castrated him; his wife cursed the ppl involved. When they found out about it, they burnt her alive, cut out the baby, the baby fell to the ground alive, and then was kicked into the blazing fire. Don't you understand? Because blacks were just n-words, their life had no value. ” Killing an n-word” was just like “lets play ball”.

          • valorius

            the nra actually went to great lengths to arm and train blacks in the south during the civil rights era. look it up.

            the 2nd amendment exists for americans of all colors, so that they can defend themselves from tyranny.

            in fact, even today, the ‘stand your ground’ laws are more often successfully utilized by would-be black defendants than whites.

            “African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.

            Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites”

            The Germans tried to murder my gyspy ancestors out of existence in death camps.

            The Romanians exiled my Gypsy ancestors from their lands and stripped them of their royal titles.

    Politicians who use words like Nigger or anything close should have their head examined. Particularly from Whites as they sneaked into this great land first to decimate the native Indians and then became lazy to import millions of Africans to do the menial jobs for them as slaves. Yet when the Constitutions was written soon after Independence in 1776 the very writers of the Constitution were practicing slavery and fornicating with Black slaves women and young girls. Such is the beginning of this great land of ours!

    • valorius

      did you know after the whites free'd the blacks they gave them a country called liberia…and the blacks that returned from the us immediately enslaved the blacks that already lived there?

      • v m

        Did you know that whites have been practicing slavery even longer: Roman empire, Norman vs the Saxon, British conquest of Ireland. Do you know that the whites who fled religious and class persecution and from England in turn persecuted the Native Americans and Blacks? Do you not know anything?

        • valorius

          and the brown egyptians have us all beat…they practiced slavery at least 5000 years ago. And the sumerians before them. And the asians…how about those mongols? Or the Japanese during WWII?

          Slavery is a human affliction, no one race has any right to say any other race is worse…we all have very dirty hands.

          at least i know my forebears fought and died by the hundreds of thousands to free the slaves in America. In fact one of my ancestors, who is a woman, disguised herself as a man and fought in the civil war to free the slaves.

          they wrote a book about her, it is called ‘uncommon soldier.’

          if you think you have a monopoly on being a victim because of the color of your skin, i'm here to tell you that you don't.

          • v m

            Although I live in the South (NC) now, I was born in NY and raised in MA:both heavily Irish communities. I remember my 7th Grade English teacher (Mr. Murphy) and how he stated there were signs that stated: “No Irish or Dogs Allowed”. When he first encountered that sign on a hotel lawn, he was just a little boy w/his father. He couldn't read but he noticed how his father's face turned beet red;;his father squeezed his hand and just walked stiffly away. He said he had never seen that look on his father's face before. A few years later when he could read that's when he understood his Father's pain because he was feeling it . Also I don't feel I have a monopoly based on the color of my skin; again Valorius, I never implied or stated (read w/understanding please) that Blacks have a monopoly on discrimination. I am black, female, and a Jehovah's Witness (my people were hunted by Hitler because we refused to join the war effort). I've been called n-word by strangers, sexually harassed because I was black (they weren't harassing the white girls only my cousin and me), been followed in stores (even now). No, I don't have a monopoly on discrimination, but I do have my (un)fair share.

          • valorius

            ive been followed in stores, ive had car dealerships refuse to wait on me. i have long hair and look ‘tough'.

            remember julia roberts in pretty woman….couldnt get waited on in rodeo drive? and she's a tall, gorgeous glamorous white woman.

            do you really think white women dont get sexually harassed? and honestly, no one does sexual harassment like black guys. the crap they say to women is beyond belief, i've seen it myself time and again on the train, on the corner, walking down the street, in my bar, etc.

            ‘yo ma. lemme get some a dat.’

          • v m

            I didn't say that white woman never get sexually harassed. You listed the problems that you have gone thru and I followed suit. When it comes to sexual harassment neither black men nor white men are worse than the other. I've been sexually harassed by white men more than black, so for you to imply that black men are worst than white men's that's laughable. Every instance you've quoted, I've either experienced (except for the bar; I've never been to one),seen, or had my black female friends tell me their personal experience. Yes, other groups of people get profiled, but who gets harassed more when shopping or even walking (WWB AKA: walking while black)?. On several experiments, white men and woman donned black makeup to see if there was a distinct difference in being black and white, and in each case they were harassed for being black. Several years ago, one young white man on Oprah conducted an experiment in a small town where he was not known. He wore the same clothes, but on one occasion he wore black makeup and an afro wig (close shaved) another he went as himself (as white). When he was white, no one bothered him; however, when he was “black”, the police continually harassed him. When he asked for directions (he did this while white too) no one would speak to him. When he asked for directions, while white, he received help. He didn't change his mannerisms when being black or white. He wore the same “preppy” clothes in each scenario. Even Oprah years ago was denied access in a high-end jewelry store (in the Us);she was dressed in expensive garb, so it wasn't like she looked like a “rag-a-muffin”;so she had her white assistant come down (who was dressed in jeans and a t-shirt) and she was immediately granted access. Oprah prior to her assistant arriving, called the store to see if they were open; (she didn't say she was Oprah)they assured her it was. She tried again; she was denied entry a 2nd time. She called the head office and then identified herself and of course, she was flooded w/apologies. You used “Pretty Woman” what happened to Oprah and others wasn't a movie.

          • valorius

            walking while white in a black neighborhood can be highly hazardous to your health too.

            and seriously, a white guy in a black area is often harassed by the police, ‘what are you doing around here? you trying to buy drugs?’

            i think stop and frisk is completely unconstitutional, by the way.

            pretty woman was a movie, but it happens to real white people every day. like i said, ive been ignored at car dealerships until i sat a sack of cash on their desk in front of them. then they fell over themselves trying to serve me, and i just left in disgust.

            having long hair and looking ‘rough’ gets you plenty of scorn from jackasses too.

            then again, looking like a straight and narrow nerdy white businessman in the hood will probably get you robbed, mugged, and shot.

            Yes, but living in an all white neighborhood isn't a picnic either. I live in a diverse neighborhood now. But growing up in a predominately white town (90% white) wasn't smooth sailing. We had race riots at the high school. The school had a student body of 6500 w/ten percent nonwhite. It was pretty scary being surrounded by an angry white mob. I remember one time when I was about 13 years old going to the local store (Lil’ Peach similar to a 7-11), I couldn't make up my mind which junk food snack to get, so I kept picking up and putting down. Finally decided upon something, went to the counter to pay for my purchases, while waiting in line nestled between me and behind the current paying customer, a little ‘golden child’ (read: blue-eyed/blond) boy was earnestly employing the ‘ five finger discount” program to grab the penny candies. All this in front of the cashier! Anyway, Dennis the Menace skips w/only paying for a small bag of chips. When my turn came to pay, the cashier (a white male) said I owed for the items I had placed back on the shelf, saying these weren't the only items I had. He accused me of shoplifting! Now mind you, it's summer, and I was only wearing some shorts and a t-shirt. There were no places for me to conceal any stolen items. I showed him what I had, and asked where in the world could I have concealed the items? I had no pockets, just a small change purse. I told him, I had put them back. He was satisfied. I was so humiliated (there were other people behind me) then I told him about Dennis the Menace, and that if he had kept an eye on every customer his store wouldn't have suffered a loss. I never went back to that store again. In the '80s while attending college, I remember going for an office job interview in Queens,NY, I was dressed in the required office dress suit/minimum makeup/subtle jewelry: pearl earrings, necklace, and watch. the boss and his staff [who range from my then age group(early 20s)- to our current age group (40s to mid 50s)] they wore business office attire; the women were dressed similar to me. The interview was strictly oral . While waiting, there were other (white) women before me, (some who were wearing inappropriate clothing: jeans/t-shirt/garish clothing or night club attire/chewing gum), and I could hear the interviews of each. He asked each girl a little bio info, hours available (some were college students like me), and that was it. I was the last interview. When my turn came, he didn't ask for any bio info, hours available, etc., what he did was give me was a spelling and reading test. I could hear the muffled giggles of the office staff. I knew right then and there that he wasn't going to hire me. I had the last laugh though. He had given me the NYT to read and there were a lot of foreign surnames and terms in that particular article. I could see he was astounded that I could correctly pronounce them. Undeterred, he then had the nerve to ask me to explain the article (he was clearly trying to find o/if I could read w/understand). Inwardly, I was laughing because I was an English Lit. major w/a studies in political science and communications/. I was also undeterred, I gave the explanation w/a little backdrop on the foreign situation. The staff wasn't amused now and neither was he. This job was only for a simple office clerical job, not for a foreign correspondent. He didn't ask me for a number where I could be reached like he did the others. I told him to have a good day. This reminded me of what blacks had to go through to register to vote and vote period. I have more personal examples, but I don't want anymore bigots living rent free in my mind. I remember when 60 minutes and 20/20 did articles on how the hiring disparity when one job seeker was white and black (w/the exact same qualifications) call backs were granted for the white person, but not for the black . I also had seen when people w/black sounding names on resumes weren't granted interviews, but once they put a European name on that same resume they received call backs. Years ago, my cousin who has a distinctly “urban” voice called for an interview, she heard in the background the question. Is the person white? The person who answered the phone said, “one of those” i.e. black. My cousin then had me call, because my speech is not non-urban (or as my former college speech communications class teacher said: I sound like an upper crust WASP w/o the annoying clenched jaw affect e.g. the late William F. Buckley). Again the race question, was raised; this time the person on the other end stated: white. This person obviously had poor hand over the phone technique. I got the interview My cousin who was on the other phone; immediately, clarified the situation and told her I was black and that she was going to call the NAACP (she didn't; she just said it to scare her). They immediately hung up. We had a good laugh over that one.

            i am sure we can all agree racism was much worse in the past.

            and look at it like this…those events shaped who you are today. you would not be nearly as strong or remarkable a person if you did not go through all that, nor would i if it were not for my trials and tribulations.

            life is not supposed to be easy, afterall.
            :)

          • v m

            As you can surmise I'm a very religious person, I believe that life was initially meant to be easy until Adam/Eve/Satan interrupted earth's paradisiac environment (Gen. Chapters 2 and 3) . I believe in the Bible's prophecy God in his due time that the earth will be that way soon. (Rev. 21:3,4) I believe that every child has a right to a happy childhood. I also very much agree w/you that trials and tribulations when you endure them successfully (that is w/o taking the easy i.e. immoral way out e.g. to escape poverty you commit a crime) does make for a better and stronger person (James 1:2-4,12). However, I have to ask: how much more stronger and better would mankind be if man could just resist the temptation to inflict cruelty on each other? It's so unnecessary and a waste. I believe that mankind's greatest potential has been repeatedly stunted and opportunities wasted due to the all consuming focus on evil rather than good. If mankind would turn to listening to the Creator than problems we face today wouldn't be nearly as great (Isaiah 48:17.18). Again, in His (God's) due time all will be as it should.

          • valorius

            the point im trying to drive home is that EVERY race has to deal with being looked down on by elitist snob jackasses.

            the problem is not really racial, it's classist.

          • v m

            I agree that classism is more of a problem than racism, but when you are a nonwhite, female, and poor the problem is 3xs worse.

          • valorius

            i actually got into it with a white nurse last night, that i met online.

            she offered me her views on why interracial breeding was wrong, and how interracial kids ‘suffered.’ i tore her a new one real good. the conversation ended with her stating that she moved to the woods to get away from jungle bunnies. i told her to stay out in the woods, afraid.. and that she is a relic of a dying generation.

            i should post her phone number…

          • v m

            Please, don't post her number (if you're serious); a potential lawsuit (against you) could ensue if something happens to her. Interracial children suffer because of the ignorance of bigoted people like that nurse. She may have moved to the woods to get away from “jungle bunnies”, but she still could face endangerment from fugitives (whatever their color) that flee to the wilderness to escape the law. Also, 95% of all murders and violence comes from family members and friends. So even though she lives in the woods, she's not “out of the woods”. As far as being a jungle bunny for some reason that term doesn't offend. I think a comedian (forgot who) who said he considered it is “a compliment, and here's why: 1st,) The jungle is clean,unpolluted (for the most part), and necessary for the well being of the earth 2nd) Bunnies are cute and likable animals. So that means that blacks are clean, important, cute, and likable; what's wrong w/that?” People like that nurse need our pity.

          • valorius

            i wont post her number, she can live her days out in the woods of NJ, one of the last remnants of a dying breed of hard core racists.

          • valorius

            about 3 weeks ago on a nightly walk a black woman actually gave me such a wide berth when passing me that she went out into the middle of the street. after she passed i watched her walk back onto the sidewalk. i stopped and called to her, and asked her if i scared her. she said yes, she was being careful…i said that it was understandable, then told her that i used to protect her when i was in the us military, and i never even knew her name. i would die before i'd hurt an innocent american. in fact, i would die to protect one. it was my job for some of the best years of my life.

          • v m

            Yes, but how many people would have given that same black woman wide berth if she were shopping? They would be breathing down her neck. This woman would have probably walked in the middle of the street regardless of the color/dress of the stranger. Woman today have to be very careful especially at night, so you could have looked and dressed like Ward Cleaver (whatever color), but for the average woman, especially at night, a stranger assumed to be WARD WITH A CLEAVER. Women of all ethnicities know that deviants come in all different disguises. It's the animalistic/cannibalistic world mankind has created.

          • valorius

            the truth is if i saw someone attacking her i'd risk my own life to save her. i've done it in the past for strangers, more than once.

            that's a noble thing you have done.

            Your choice to have long hair is not anything like being born with brown skin. And Pretty Woman is Cinderella with hookers, you really think that reflects any sort of reality?

          • valorius

            Yep, pretty woman accurately depicts classism.

            I have long hair, doesn't matter if it's by choice or not…i am discriminated because of it. And not just unofficially, but officially as well. I can't be a cop or a fireman or a soldier unless i cut my hair- Whereas a woman does not have such restrictions in place at all.

            Your argument here is that gays or transgenders don't really face discrimination because it's their choice to be that way.

            Which is, of course, an utterly ridiculous argument.

            Like almost all of your arguments.

          • janegray

            That's a myth. Except the part where the Irish were used for jobs too dangerous for slaves. They were, but that's because the slaves were property, not human beings. It had nothing to do with the Irish being thought of as lower. Besides, the Irish were able to do something blacks could not, assimilate seamlessly into society.

          • valorius

            Nope, not a myth. Sorry.

          • valorius

            The Irish did not assimilate seamlessly. Assimilate, yes. Seamlessly…no.

          • janegray

            LOLOLOL You don't even know what assimilation means, do you?

          • valorius

            LOLOLOLOL I know exactly what it means.

            In earlier time in America an Irishman was only white until he opened his mouth and revealed his accent, or wrote his name on a job application.

            “Irish need not apply.”

            You just cannot accept that people have had it as rough as blacks…no matter how much evidence is presented to you. That's a shame…your victim mentality will always hold you back in life, as that very mentality keeps you enslaved, even 150 years after it's abolishment.

      • v m

        Did you know that when persecuted whites who fled England they in turn persecuted the Native Americans and Blacks? Do you know that these same Puritans who sought religious freedom persecuted Catholics? Did you know that Whites have been enslaving each other for over a two millenniums: Roman Empire, Normans enslavement of the Saxons, England over Ireland. I guess hypocrisy and slavery are Equal Opportunity Employers.

        • valorius

          did you know that native americans persecuted whites too? google native american torture methods sometime when you have some extra time to kill. or, for that matter, how common it was for native american tribes to enslave rival tribes peoples when captured.

            Persecuted- The Gypsies when Hitler ordered 10s of thousands of them to their deaths in death camps.

            My ancesters certainly know what the word means.

LoL!Seriously,one thing I wanted to address re: the time you got into an altercation w/ those ‘ruffians” who insulted your woman, please don't do that again. Remember you have a beautiful family to take care of who need you alive not in a grave. The best way to handle it is to keep a level head by just not showing emotion, continue to walk on your way,and when in private speak consolingly to your woman. I know you are agnostic, but allow God to handle this. People will truly reap what they've sown (I know! I know! I've worn that expression/o but it is true.). That's not to say that if they (regardless of race and even gender) don't allow you safe passage, then you fight like a cornered wounded lion!

(Prov. 16:18 ).'Pride is before a crash” (Prov. 14:12 ) He was the one who said a live dog is better than a dead lion. Valorous, think it takes more courage to walk away from a fight, which could be a potentially fatal situation, then to allow misplaced pride to dictate your behavior. What if those men had succeeded in fatally hurting you, who would be there to protect your family in the future? Yes, I believe that the n-word is harmful, but I am not ready to fight, kill, or die over it. You have to carefully pick your battles, not let them pick you. Your name Valorius I'm assuming that the root word Is Valor. If it is the one dictionary stated that Valor means: “strength of MIND (sic.) or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness : personal bravery”. Using your mind is by far a person's best weapon. I do believe in self-defense, but it must be tempered w/common sense. I am not a coward, but I am also not a pugilist. I would die first before giving up my faith, but I also won't deliberately kill or go to physical anyone over it. That's not my place; that is God's place to extract vengeance. Peace.

            ~A Soldier's Goodbye~

            Since the dawn of time i have walked the battlefields of mankind.

            Death, carnage and grief, these are the “gifts” of which I've been bequeathed.

            For both harm inflicted and pain suffered, in every tongue my dying words I've uttered.

            I die hard, though not afraid to go, for the other side of death I all to well know.

            Thus if i speak as if i have an older soul, it is only because in ten thousand battles I did fall.

            From ancient Sumeria to the Roman halls, I have died in every way possible, with mine eyes seen them all.

            In the untouched forests of the of the Pacific Northwest, to the sandy beaches of Normandy I've faced my death.

            Time immemorial has brought me here, in my latest incarnation, despite my fear.

            To kill and to die that is my lot, for the angel of death does continuously plot.

            But i am not bitter, resentful, nor apathetic, for it is the call of a soldier to fight and to die, this is nothing prophetic.

            So when this body lies broken and battered, my blood flowing unto the grass with my flesh torn and tattered…

            Do not cry or weep for my passing, for I will return to this earth to face the next enemy massing.

            Until that time I say good bye to you my dear, in my heart you will live forever, be eternally near.

            I gave my life freely so that my comrades shouldn't have to.

            My only regret, an eternity without you.

        I always find it hilarious when people bring this up, like anyone is saying that was okay or what people were doing in Africa has as more bearing on what was happening in the US than what people were doing in the US. However, the interesting thing about black people owning slaves in the US that no one seems to know or care about is that often times a person who managed to buy their own freedom would often also buy their families out of slavery and “own” them because it was not legal for them to free them outright. So, yeah, black people in America owned slaves, but that's only half the truth.

        • valorius

    im a black woman. I dont use the word nigga. I dont like it when other black people do. Most black people are aware, and white people usually arent, usually ghetto black people, or lower class and uneducated black people, say that. Once you get a level of class, you will NEVER see certain types of black people use that word. Just saying, I usually dont associate with ghetto/uneducated/lower class people in general (black or white), so I usually dont hear that word at all.

    • valorius

        right…you can be college educated and still ghetto. Very. People can see through it real quick, and she'll get the buzz off eventually around people who wouldnt be caught dead saying that. I get it, I used to be really ghetto too until I learned what class was. And her college educated father, really? You're lying. And IF that fake story is true, i bet her college educated daddy wouldnt say it in front of white people…Unless they are trashy too, but that goes back to the earlier statement, some people dont want to hang out with trash (which does not correlate to money, but to knowing how to act in public – with dignity, not crassness).

But that's okay, right? That's hypocrisy with a capital H! It's okay for whites to live in the past by celebrate being DAR (Daughters of the Revolutionary War) and DAC (Daughters of the Confederacy), National Society of the Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims, to stage reenactments of the Revolutionary War and Civil War? Why is okay for Italians to celebrate Columbus Day, and for the Irish to celebrate St. Patrick's Day (all past events)? Why do whites allow themselves the luxury of bringing up the past and reenacting it, but blacks are disallowed re: slavery and segregation? Again, that's hypocrisy with a capital H! I, just like you, have the moral right to decide who gets to call me what; it may be a novel concept to you, but it's called: autonomy. You feel you have the right to tell me not to live in the past than I get to tell you not to call me the n-word. You have the right to decide who gets to call you whatever nickname/pet name based on your discretion: e.g. parents, siblings, spouse, friends, etc. As I once said to another commenter in an earlier comment: why don't I have that same right to call you any of those names? What makes you or them more so special that they are allowed that right, but I'm denied?. Mr., Yelton made the claim that blacks use the word, I also use the word “Mama” when referring to my mother, does that mean he has that same right to call my mother “mama”? No. The same principle applies: we all get to choose who calls us what again it's about autonomy that is the underling principle of this whole subject: re: the n-word. As far as other blacks using the n-word, it is totally not the same thing; some whites say the n-word w/an-er ending (like the KKK who are alive and well) to be racist (as in Mr. Yelton's case); while some blacks use it as a sense of empowerment and the word is amended (w/an -a ending) . Also, if a black person wants only other blacks to call him the n-word then he has the right; it's his body not yours or Mr. Yelton's for that matter. I don't have a problem if Mr. Yelton wants to use the n-word to refer to himself after all it's his body. Notice he didn't: I wonder why? Could it be because he didn't want to refer to himself as such a derogatory word? Because he would be putting himself down. I guess he would be insulted if someone called him a ‘lazy white person’ (like he called blacks). I guess he doesn't believe in treating people the way he wants to be treated. Mr.. Yelton doesn't have the moral right to refer to blacks as such (i.e. both lazy and/or the n-er). I can't stop you, but neither will you be able to stop someone from offending you. Remember this conversation when said offense takes place. Remember you reap what you sow

          • oldbuildingsrule

            And you reap what you sow, too. Certain people behave a certain way, then they can be thought of in a certain way. My importance is placed on ‘is it true.’ ‘Is that person correct in saying that.’ Also, I know blacks and hispanics are not lazy; they can be real hard workers.

          • v m

            What did Mr. Yelton say that was true? This man used the word lazy for one segment of society (blacks) like it didn't pertain to his group or any other group? He was wrong in slamming blacks (which involves me). He doesn't know me from Eve, yet based on my skin color he felt he had the moral right to call me names. Like I said, if he wanted to insult someone he could have just stuck w/himself. And yes, I am not exempt from reaping what I sow, which is why I don't go around making bigoted remarks about other people. You said, “certain people behave in a certain way, then they can be thought of in a certain way.”. Based on certain actions by Mr. Yelton, I would say for certain he's a racist. Also, you do realize that all actions are universal and not monopolized by one segment? Not just by certain people of a particular skin tone? Something that is obviously lost on Mr. Yelton. Oh, well, he lost his job. Yep, he pretty much reaped what he sowed.

          • oldbuildingsrule

            The messed up ideas that you're about – socially beating up someone up and firing them cause a small segment of the population feels offended- are wrong and WILL come back to YOU! This ‘liberal’ cuntry feels like a like a stinking straight-jacket cause of fools like you. How do you like conservatives all over Obama's case about stupid sh@t? I don't, but he's just reaping what you ‘liberals’ are sowing. I'm done replying to you. I got better things to do.

          • janegray

            I'm not living in the past, I got harassed out of a bar just a few months ago by some racist. And PC doesn't mean what you think it means and I'm sick of people using it like that.

  • valorius

    N word? the word is nigger. what the hell….blacks use it every 1.5 seconds.

    in fact when i bartended in a rough mixed race bar, they called me a nigga every night, in a friendly ‘you are my cool buddy’ sort of way.

    nigga is a greeting, or can literally mean almost anything….it's not even an insult any more.

    dumb ass political correct morons.

    • Trish Chasity

      Not to me and it represents poor English grammar Or a sign of dumbing down America

        I tend to agree with you, but it is what it is.

        oh, a thinks she's smart liberal…not. You are not going to control what people think or say “liberal.”

        • janegray

          No one cares what you think or say, we just expect you to be honest about why you think and say it.

    • oldbuildingsrule

      You rule, dude!!

        I'm just keeping it real my nigga.

          Aiee, muh nigga.

  • Tariq Williams

    He is correct about the fact that he can say anything he wants to say, but he has to understand that others who are associated with him whether they agree or disagree with him have the option to disassociate themselves with him if they believe that continuing that association may in some way be detrimental to them professionally or socially.

    • Trish Chasity

      Only if he chooses to make a point! After a recent government shutdown that costs many Americans millions in taxes, he has no authority to be talking through his a**!!! Sounds like a hypothesis instead of a proven theory to me.

    • oldbuildingsrule

      They're roll-over cowards!

  • Trish Chasity

    He is and will always be a cranky old man who is in need of some Geritol. Maybe you need to take some Beano tablets. You are full of gas man!!!

  • James Elliott

    Ok it's not about “hiphop” artists and rappers saying nigga. It's about that same type of person that kept us as slaves for so many years using it in that same type of way that they always have. That's what pisses people off. I know plenty of mexican-americans and puerto rican-americans that use it and know exactly what us as blacks mean when we use it. It's not that he used it, it's his intention with his words!

  • DJ Johnny

    Liberals are soulless drones who hate anything good in the world.
    Stephen Colbert admitted that he and the Daily Show pick on Republicans because they are the party in power and it wouldn't be funny to pick on the weaker party. He said that when the GOP was in power.
    What's their excuse now? It's easy. He was LYING which is what liberal turds do best. It's all they do, and they do so without conscience or regret since they have no morals whatsoever.
    This Colbert Show is a joke that went and crossed the line of “taking a lame joke too far” with the airing of their second show.
    “Colbert Repor….” Yeah hilarious. You see he dropped the T…isn't that hilarious. Instead of report with a T he says repor….he's making fun of newspeople. Get it?
    My grandma always told me people who hate God or don't believe in a God look different. She said there's a look of evil about them. They look unhappy and disheveled.
    I saw Richard Dawkins…the hateful atheist on Bill Maher and it's true. Messy, unruly hair, rotting teeth and the general appearance of a homeless person.
    All his postulations have been refuted, but like all liberal schyttbags he won't admit it.

  • DJ Johnny

    It's much easier for liberal turds to place all conservatives in a neat little box and call them religious nut bags and racists. You see it's easier than actually having to debate them. “Oh he's a bible thumping racist”, or “go back to your pick up truck with your confederate flag license plate and your gun rack and go shoot some black people'.
    Easier to do that then actually engage in a fair discourse.
    Lying is what they do best. They do it w/out remorse or conscience.

    • oldbuildingsrule

      Right on. This is a sick country because of liberals right now.

    • janegray

      LOL The irony is powerful.

  • Maryiah_lynn

    As an african American I find it offensive when people use that word around me, black or white, so the fact that he made that assumption is upsetting.

    Diversity is not our strength… with evermore fewer uniting bonds among the masses the destruction of the Union is inevitable.

    Look across the planet at other areas with excess diversity and observe the horrors there.

    • v m

      It's not diversity that's the problem. It's mankind irrational hatred of self. Where there isn't a racial difference, mankind has improvised by warring w/each other either on an ethnic, religious, gender,and economic class issue. Look at the continual war in Northern Ireland, the war between the Basque community and the Spanish community, at India and Africa et als. Again when man can't hate someone based on skin color, man will disgustingly improvise.

  • BlackGuy

    niggers like to be called nigger they call themselves that daily. So you stupid people out there need to stop getting upset when a white, mexican, asian person calls a black person a nigger. The blacks played all of you and there taking your money all the way to the bank. the world need to grow up, is the world like in the 4th grade they go and cry to mommy when someone calls them a name. There is only 1 race on the planet, the human race. Stop acting like color means anything, this keeps going on because you morons keep acting like children on playground. grow and be and adult and stop playing the race card.

    • oldbuildingsrule

      Exactly! That was perfect, dude.

    • v m

      It's about autonomy. No one has the moral right to refer to someone they don't wish to be called by someone. If it wasn't so upsetting, than why are you responding? Why didn't you just “blow it off” ? Obviously it means something to you? Whether you acknowledge it or not you've allowed you self to become one of the children in the playground. Had Mr. Yelton not played the race card first in this interview then the other race card (responses) would not have been played. You need to remember that our ancestors were killed for just being a n-word. It's not just a word just like verbal abuse is not just a term.

    in 200 years whites started America, wrote the constitution and went to the moon, in the past 5000 years most niggers in Africa still urinate in their own water supply, niggers are demons and yard apes!

    I am anti-abortion; I believe it's murder. However it should be noted that there is a direct correlation between poverty and abortion. Because Blacks are ten times likely to be in poverty than whites, thus the abortion rate is going to be much higher. Low income women of all ethnic groups have higher rates of abortion then any social economic;while among other economic groups it fell, it rose among the profoundly poor (see Time Magazine).

    Lazy people who have no interest in the current events of the country they live in, who don't even know who is running for office, should NOT be allowed to vote – I don't care what race, religion or gender you are. Too many people don't even know who the current vice-president is, or who the last vice-president was, let alone their platforms – and yet they vote. What, I say, What is up with that???? We need educated voters – period. Actually, Geo. Washington & Co thought so, too, which is why we have the Electoral College. I used to be upset about that – but now I understand their reasoning. Not that that is good – it makes for firmly implanted party politics. But when the average guy on the street can't name the current vice-president, we have a problem, America, and Don Yelton is not it.

    • v m

      but he didn't say lazy people he said lazy blacks. He was specific in targeting one particular segment of society. Don Yelton's bigotry is a problem for any society!

  • A.L.

    Racism is more than just using ignorant words and terms. One does not need to say “the N-word” to be a bigot. Political racism never “went away” when Obama was elected as president, it went underground. Politicians these days make asinine laws and gerrymandering to hide their bigoted agendas against blacks, women, homosexuals etc. Don Yelton simply said what other politicians thought but were not dumb enough to say on television. In his own way, he helped to bring to light the atrocities of these voter id laws.

  • Arlene Mitchell

    What I want to know is why people think or categorize African American as being lazy? This man appears to be white, what does he know about his own race and their motivation? Does he know how much money African Americans spend on retail per year, don't think they are that lazy when you look at the spending. Our country is more racist than ever since President Obama has been in office. Go figure!!!

  • TEXIZZ

    Some people and some newspapers can't handle the truth! Mr. Yelton has no problem with it!

  • niclean

    I have never heard another black person say “nigger”. I have heard plenty young people of all races say “nigga”. Incidentally, where are the people rallying for the right to use the word “fag” and “jew” and “bitch” who aren't a part of those groups?

  • T Price

    It seems like racism will not die in the Caucasian communities. They can't help themselves, must be imbedded in their DNA.

    • oldbuildingsrule

      As long as your people keep killing themselves and wh!te people, I will keep being a ‘racist.’ Focus on yourselves, not our reaction.

      • janegray

        But it's apparently cool for white people to kill black people and each other, huh?

        • oldbuildingsrule

          No, it's not cool, the small percentage of times wh!tes kill wh!tes. As for George Zimmerman, that is only ONE case out of the whole country. (And he calls himself a wh!te hispanic, by the way). The only times wh!tes are shooting bl#cks is when bl#cks terrorize us by sticking guns at our faces! That's the daily nightmare around my neighborhood. Oh, and negroes kidnapping, raping, and killing wh!te women, (not to mention their own color). It's evil and sickening, and don't use lack of money and such to blame that on. I'm poor, and I would never do that. Don't compare one stupid case in Florida to a multiple times a day reality.

          • janegray

            [citation needed] No one mentioned Zimmerman, though, that was you.

  • Boflex

    Its a shame when someone tells the truth people shout them down. Prove he's a liar using statistics…bet it can't be done. People, white or black who don't contribute income taxes, should not be allowed to decide how the taxes are spent. My kids don't earn a salary and don't contribute to the household….do you think I give them an equal share in how its spent? Hell no, or we'd be up to our ass in candy and video games in our car out on the street. Yep, right now this country is up to its ass in entitlements and we my friends are about to be out on the streets. Truth!

  • flyingeagletrail

    If blacks want to stop whites from calling them out, they should stop following beggars like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. It is time to take a serious look at the leaders like Farrakhan. He has been telling blacks for decades that it is time to get serious about building up their economy. He wants blacks to be able to sit down at the negotiating table with whites and iron out business deals, not sit and beg for jobs or threaten a boycott if they don't get them.

  • spergbabby

    who gives a fudge if them coloreds dont like being called n words they shouldn't be calling each other that im a caucasian and i use the n word all the time and i dont give a rip what anyone thinks they can go fudge theirself if they take offense lulz :DDD

    And then they supported an assault weapons ban in the 70s to keep guns out of the hands of the Black Panthers.

    • valorius

      The NRA has never supported an assault weapons ban. Please do not make things up.

      I am a white and i agree with the right of the black panthers -and everyone else- to arm themselves against government (Or any other kind) of persecution.

      I served in uniform to preserve that and every other right we have, as a matter of fact.

  • janegray

    What percentage of black people actually voted? Black people are about 12% of the population, not all of those people are eligible to vote because of their age or felony status and some simply didn't. Now, compare that percentage with the percentage of black people who voted for Gore and Kerry. And why are black people suddenly ~racist~ when the majority of black people vote for a Democrat and the majority of black people have been voting for the Democrat since the 70s just because the Democrat in question is a black man? Is it because the opposing response to Obama has been so insanely and overtly racist and people have pointed it out?

    • valorius

      You don't need any ID to vote, so in reality, all 100% are ‘eligible’ to vote…sometimes more than once.

      Blacks are not ‘suddenly’ racist…they've always been racist.

  • wherearetheducks

    So, if I'm understanding this correctly, he's claiming that people are being racist…towards racism itself?
