I am dead serious. You didn't term all white people as hicks. You coined a stereotypical uneducated white person as a "hick" Just like there is a difference between a black person and what people call a stereotypical uneducated black person. However, I would never eve
Where did I say they where unedjermacated? Show me please cause I cant seem to find it. Oh and so are you saying that only uneducated black people get called niggers? :confused:

There has been a racial dispute going on in our city. The walls in our gym last year had "KILL ALL THE NIGGERS" spray painted all over. I am part of the 1% of the black kids that go to the school and I have noticed a lot more "hicks" lately and confederate flags and swasticas all over. I am not saying its them or anything (in fact it was a couple of "hicks" bringing that poster around to the classes) but you know what I mean.

It is pretty funny. Everybody is blaming people they hate at the high school for it and they are being pulled into the office. This is the second time this year our tiny little city has had a blip on the news. Remeber earlier this year when that guy was selling those jets and fiber optic cable on ebay? That guys company is in arlington too.

As for me, I am not scared or anything. Just kind of suprised this would happen in the most northwest part of the country. The main thing that is pissing me off is people coming up to me and asking me for the ol "black perspective". Ya, I am black. No my mind isnt wired differently than anyone else's. I am not about to break out in a "I have a dream" speach. LOL @ white people (jk)


Cliff notes: There was a cross burning on a black familys lawn and the dads a priest. Riots broke out and the millitary got involved and ran over 2 people with a tank.

I take great offense to calling white people "hicks". Please edit it from your post. I wouldn't call your race a degrading name, and you have no right to refer to white people that way either.
You better be joking. Seriously, didnt you see the quotation marks? Did I say all white people are hicks? Its a name of a grouping of people and not one of them is offended by it. Actually they prefer that or rednecks and I am not joking they sit there and they are like "Damn right I am a redneck". Its just a category of clique at our school. Just like Nerd, band geek, jock, prep, skater should I go on?

Go ahead and reply to this saying something like "well why do black people get to say nigger and not white people? hmm. HMMM!"
Well that is because of context and you know it. I could go on but why fuel the fire?

-Xionide
Amazing how all the categories you pick out, with the exception of skater, could be found to be either insulting or offensive to the people that you are refering to. Its also nice that you believe that context makes it OK for other blacks to call each other "nigger", but the same doesn't apply to some white guys calling themselves "hicks"?

Maybe after you stop being a racist yourself, you'll find a way to help others get past it.

Just like there is a difference between a black person and what people call a stereotypical uneducated black person. However, I would never eve
He termed a racist assh0le as a hick. And rightfully so.

I see 50x more racist black people than I do racist whites.

EDIT:
And this thread follows what I see where I live.

Be careful what you say or these internet intellectuals will scream "reverse racism".

If you think for a minute that a white person is going to be disadvantaged, compared to a black person, as a result of "racism", you are quite good at fooling yourself.

No, you can call them hicks because they are hicks. I'm just trying to remove the race card rebuttal before it's used.

I never said you were uneducated. A racist, yes...you might just be. If you want to call youself uneducated, then thats your own call to make.

Some people are too sensitive about race. I'm a cracker, a hick, whitey, what have you...who gives a crap? There are more important things in life to worry about. Unless you're being denied service or physically threatened, shrug it off.

There's a difference between Xionide calling people at his school hicks and them calling Xionide a n!gger. Whites a) aren't the minority, b) are the ones with power, c) have the race based advantages. When you decide that any recognition of race is racism, and that you should pretend that all races are in equal positions in society, you are just putting a blinder over your own eyes.

look at any of the better college a black student will get a free ride where the same white student wouldn't even get looked at.

Really, all I'm trying to point out is the irony in using what can be considered as some as a derogatory, even racist, comment, in a post about a hate crime.

Good point. I am pretty racially lax. I tell racist jokes because I think its kind of funny that everybody gets so pissed off about it. I have a pretty good one and I would probably post it if all the children would settle down and the mods wouldnt ban me.

Wow.

a) aren't the minority
Depends on the definition.

b) are the ones with power
People are voted into office. It's not like some all unsaid saying that White people MUST be in the gov't.

c) have the race based advantages
That is the most backwards retarded thing I've EVER heard. Name ONE THING that white people get because they are white.
Blacks qualify for MANY things white people do not get;
loans, JOBS, etc. etc. etc.


edit:
try schools... you have any idea how many black only scholarships there are?? Show me TWO white only scholarships?
