I don't believe he knew what that word meant and did not mean to offend anyone. But now I see in here a Salem Witch trial commencing.

I read the article. I've seen it on TV, I've listened to the commentary(both sides) on the radio today.

I think we can discuss why is this tolerated in 2006? For those of you who don't consider this racism, then why not? Does this effect your vote(if you were voting for him)?

There are plenty of questions.

No, by all means, continue to defend what he said. It makes for some very amusing reading while I sort through stuff here in the computer room.

Why would you use a word you don't know?

Can you not even see in the context of his background:

Quote:
The word could also be interpreted as "macaca" or "mukakkah," a French and Belgian slur for dark skinned peoples of North African descent.[2] Allen's mother immigrated from French Tunisia and is of French descent.[3] Allen speaks French and obtained excellent grades in French as an undergraduate.
that he could possibly know?

Or in the most obvious context of the assuming and mocking the individual by saying "welcome to America".

All of this and you are just going to assume he didn't know?

I haven't yet. So the pious interjections don't really add anything here.

I can see where you coming from. You can make as many racial slurs as long as your on stage in front of hundreds of people.

Let me explain this to you clearly: Chris Rock is a comedian, pointing out human nature in an insightful, educated way. This ass-clown is an elected official, using racist, derogatory words in their racist, derogatory meaning.


Big fucking difference that you don't seem to understand.

I understand but dont you think that comedians will put this idea that its ok cause everyone laughed at white, black, asian jokes. Remember Younger audiences watch his stand up too.

Then what's your point with the high and mighty posts about "other people's flaws"? Yeah, racism is a flaw to be reviled, especially in a US senator.

So take your high road, and think you're above the fray when you refuse to condemn.

That is a good point, but one that I don't think fits in this discussion at all.
