Why do people get angry when you describe someone by their skin color?! How is saying, "The black guy over there." Any different or worse than saying, "The guy with black hair over there?" Have any of you noticed people like this? It's like they are too uptight or think it's bad to describe someone by their skin color or race. Is it really that bad to say something like, "No, the arab mike." IMHO, I really don't see why people find it bad to say something like that. Don't get me wrong I have asian, black, mexican and Ropigahian friends, whatever. But I just think it's weird that people still think it's racist to say things like that. I saw a black comic talk about how she thought she could make the word Nig*** less of a taboo word because she was so fed up with people (whites) tring not to offend blacks by not mentioning anything about skin color or anything like that. So she would make "Nig*** chips." "Pass me the cheese Nig***." And she went through all the flavors of the chips. It was pretty funny. "But there would be no barbaque flavor, that would just sound weird." Then "What kind of party is this? You don't have have any Nig***S?! You've got all the crackers and no Nig***S!? I was much more funny on live Sorry if my post offends anyone, I don't know why it would. Why not listen to a black persons (the comic) point of view on the issue? I think we are so quick to not to offend anyone and we tread so lightly that we actually treat other races differnently, and they notice. Anyone that has felt this first hand? What do you think?
