Equal Rights Equal Racism

In my opinion Mr.Richards did nothing different than that of Chris Rcok or Dave Chappelle. He went on stage and did a portion of racialy charged comedy. I feel, as a white man, that if a black man can stand on stage and call me a cracker, than a white man should be able to stand up on stage and call a black man a ******. I do not feel that either word is any more offensive than the other. It's about time Mr.Richards took a stand and fired back. Maybe now all comedians of all races and genders will be more responsible for the acts and the message they are sending!

I fully agree. What is the difference between a black person, comic or otherwise, calling a White person a cracker, a honkey, or whatever, and a White person calling a black person a ******, a spook, a jig, or whatever? Absolutely no difference. Other than that the "person of color" has been so "downtrodden all his life". And it is the fault of every White person on the planet. <br />
They, blacks in particular, say that as a White male, it is MY fault there are so many blacks in prison. <br />
To this I say, "BULLSH*T!" The reason the S.O.B.s are in prison is because THEY COMMITTED A CRIME! No other reason. <br />
If they want to stay out of prison, let the bastards get off the streets and get themselves an education and become PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY!!!<br />
Does this make me racist? <br />
THEN I GUESS I AM A RACIST.<br />
But, it's not just the blacks, hispanics, etc, who need to stop committing crimes to stay out of prison. It's all of them. If they want to be free, let them all, cracker, ******, spic, hebe, or whatever, become productive members of society and then, maybe they will earn the repsect of this Cracker, Redneck S.O.B. (ME). Until they do, they can ROT in their cages.

How the hell would you understand? Are you black? Do you know what it's like to live as a black person in society? Racism as a system is alive and well, and it would do you some good to LISTEN to someone who actually knows what it feels like to be a part of an oppressed class. It's NOT about you.

If we all had similar origins, I would agree with you, but there's a bit of a difference between our respective POV's. White people were never, as a class, owned, bought and sold, and considered less than people. African-American history is unique, and it shapes who we all are based upon our ancestry, be that enslaver or slave.
