Once in my class we were reading Sounder and on the first page the words "negro school" appears.

A black student raised her hand and said she was offended by that word.

I gave a brief answer on how the term to refer to race has changed through the years. I gave The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) as an example.

We continued reading chapter one.

It was Black History Month and that afternoon we has an assembly in the gym to celebrate.

The celebration included a group of singers.

On the program we gave to each student were the words "Negro spirituals."

Glenn Beck is everything that's wrong with America today ...

But on this actually agree with him. African-American is a term that had it's time, and really is useless at this point. Black serves the same purpose, is generally more accurate (it's shocking how often white Americans call blacks "African-Americans" even when they're not from America), and, as a bonus, has less syllables.

It bothers me that some Americans are so PC they don't know what to call a black man or woman from another country.
Glenn Beck is a fucking moron, but for completely different reasons.

Nelson Mandela is black. Seal is black.

Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment - Yahoo! News

Quote:
WASHINGTON – The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate apologized on Saturday for comments he made about Barack Obama's race during the 2008 presidential bid and are quoted in a yet-to-be-released book about the campaign.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
But Beck's the racist

I don't think Beck or Reid are racists.

Or necessarily racist for Jimmy Carter to call Obama "this black boy".

Or for Joe Biden to call Obama "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."

Obviously it depends entirely on who says it, right?

Do they have to be beating someone in order for you to call them racists? Seriously, what does it take?

What does it take for someone that disagrees with you NOT to be a racist, sexist, homophobe, fucking moron or an anti-science teabagger.

Seriously, what does it take?

There disagreement to be based on logic, facts, and understanding.

Not hate, fear, or disillusionment.

I have always respected those that disagree with me and have been able to back and explain their stance.

Beck, Rush, and some in here can't do that. I and many others have shown you NUMEROUS examples of racism and sexism by Rush, Beck, and others. You choose to ignore it. Personally I think it says something about a person when they are given so many examples and turn a blind eye to it...

But it's not a case of neener neener-Reid made a racist remark so somehow Beck is on a different playing field somehow. It certainly is fair to point to double standards when they exist. If a Republican said the same as Reid would Obama be calling for his resignation as Steele claimed? Not from what I have seen regarding how he deals with matters of race. Would others-I would guess definitely. They're all a bunch of hypocrites in my eyes anyway.

I don't know what the hell is wrong with these people because I can't understand why they say these things in the year 2009 or 10 or whenever.

Bill Clinton also allegedly said that a few years ago Obama would have been getting us coffee The out of control egos in politics are part of it-the rest, well it rears its' ugly head for the world to see sometimes. He certainly had plenty of other ugly things about the President during the campaign-like Hillary said, she can't control him and he can become a problem.

Looks as if there's quite a bit of juicy book selling stuff in that Game Change book. It's not as if it never occurred to these people that people would talk and books could be written, etc. It's not pretty to see this type of stuff exposed-on the other hand how surprising is it? Politics really are dirty.

He, Sarah, and Glenn should have a show together at FOX. At least it would be funny.

Not nearly as funny as Countdown with Keith Olbermann. That guy's a hoot.

That would sting if I actually liked Keith Olbermann. I may agree with his political leanings, but he's no more of a journalist than the gang over at FOX. He's an entertainer and a douche-y one at that, just like Glenn.
