There ain't no tolerance like zero tolerance.
Hers a seattle comedian who could give Mr. richards advice on how to handle hecklers.or maybe not
side note question is it more offensive if a prevaliged white kid plays Ice Cubes ' Here comes the Predator' within ear shot of those offended by the word or is it acceptable if its some homies from the hood in the same scenario.
Have we come to make a word uttered Legal/Illegal for certain races,genders, classes, or occupations of people?
I rolled when I saw a Will Smith interview and he said...
"I do not think the Black community has come to terms if it finds the word offensive or not." we all have to wait till the black community decides to keep the word( as its made a lot of comedians rich and rappers true to the hood with the OG title) or lose it from the vocabulary(plummett in sales of Bling bling rappers and plenty of little demonts and Tanyas getting welts on their asses, my cousins mother used to whoop his ass everytime he said the N word)
Do I have to get rid of all my Gangster rap recordings or will it be acceptable to play them loud and clear in public no less.sigh
this post meant for here.
It seems to me that Wayans was deliberately poking fun at Michael Richards. Whether he meant it that way or not, this is a clear example of the stupidity of banning specific words or forms of speech. Context matters.
I'm offended by reference to white people as "crackers." So, saying "cracker ass cracker" should = $40. And soon we have a new list of banned words. I hope George Carlin has enough money left to do a routine.
