    nobody else has the cahonies LOL ! hope my topic didn't upset you or hurt your feelings.

    Nobody else is obsessed with racism denial.

    I'm fine, YOU are the one who posted a thread for your butthurt.
    There's no denying anymore. I read one of his posts that said Muslims were an infestation.

    I used to defend the guy, but that job is really hard to do lately.

    And what a moronic thread/poll about Obama. Obsess much?
    I've been away for a while and I skimmed through what I have missed and that jumped out to me as well.

    Regarding the topic of the guy fired for his comment, I don't believe he meant guerilla, I do believe he meant gorilla. Guerilla tactics are, by definition, not powerful frontal assaults, which is what he was describing. Gorilla tactics would make more sense in context.

    His lawsuit is dumb. His job is to entertain consumers of sports media, he compromised that goal so ESPN let him go. Even if it was an honest mistake, it's ESPN's JB to keep it's consumers happy and if he fucks that up he's got to go.
    Monkey Driven, Call this Living?
  • To me... describing someone in the midst of a sporting event as a 'gorllla' is complementary: strong, powerful, etc.

    I'm pretty sure that's what the guy meant (even though there seems to be a guerrilla term bantered about as well). I don't think for a second he was making appearance references.

    This is getting out of hand. Walking on eggshells,thinking for way too long on the right word to innocently describe something. I hope the man wins in court.

    I don't have to think long. It just seems like using the right words the same way you're talking about anything else. What do you get hung up on?

    in this case, I would say so. But that doesn't mean there isn't STILL legitimateinjustices perpetrated daily.

    my personal view on political correctness is its really about basic human decency and respect toward another human being. I can't see how exactly thats a bad thing?

    That isn't a bad thing.
    I think the problem some see with PC going to far is too many are overly sensitive to it. You can't bring up fatherless homes when talking about black crimes or someone will accuse you of being racist.
    When I was in college I was having a friendly conversation with 2 coworkers and the word "ghetto" was used. My white friend and I were written up and given a serious warning (like almost lost our job) for using racial slurs, and when we asked why the third person wasn't in trouble our manager responded "because she's black, she's allowed to use that word." I think that was my first personal experience of serious over PC reaction. Here we are some 20 year old kids having a friendly conversation on a lunch break, and our job was threatened because we were white and used the word "ghetto" to describe something, then were told our black coworker can use it since she's black.
    Probably don't need to mention I didn't have a good relationship with my manager after that and didn't give a crap about my job after that and my work productivity quickly declined.
    that scenario depends on how the argument is framed though doesn't it? in what way was that convo framed? what was the context?

    on the surface, a misapplication of hr protocols is what it sounds like to me. also got to ask, just how long ago was this?
    I don't even remember context, this was 12 years ago or so. Back when the word "ghetto" was used often to describe something shady, you know like if your bumper starts to fall off and you keep it together with duct tape, that's ghetto. It was something like that, innocent conversati0on, nothing to do with race or anything. I'm pretty sure the 2 of us who got into trouble weren't even the first ones to use it, it was our black friend who got a free pass for being black who used it and we just continued the conversation. And to get into as much trouble as we did was ridiculous. To take such offense to an innocent conversation like that just blew my mind at the time. Especially since I remember our defense being we didn't even use the word first (even though I didn't think anything wrong with it at the time anyway) and him following back with "that is our word, you can't have it).

    I felt like I got my revenge a month later. It was a job on campus and we had to sign up when we had finals so they wouldn't schedule us. I accidentally said I had PM finals and could work the AM shift. It was reversed, but didn't realized I wrote it down wrong. So I show up for the PM shift (having taking a final that morning) and immediate get my rear end handed to me. In 4 years working this same job, and this was a relatively new manager, this was the one and only time I missed a shift or was even late. The only other incident I ever had was using the word ghetto a few weeks early, but got along great with all our previous managers. So when I realized I wrote down the wrong times I apologized several times, but he kept chewing me out and said this is my second strike and to not let there be a third or I'm gone. He then immediately changes his attitude and says "but since its finals we're really short staffed right now and I could really use your help if you stay, everyone else ha PM finals today." My response was "so you mean I wasn't scheduled to work right? see you tomorrow."

    You don't even remember? Let me guess, you're white and nervous?

    For inspiration, I'd like to thank Unsung, fearing the elimination of the white race as he is; for rhyming, I'd like to thank JC for saying things in threes, you you you know and I go go go but for the spew and the factless opinion of just spreading the hate? This shout out is to you Mace, stick around, we need more of white nationalism being sung and being proud. And old uncle Neil is still singing Southern Man.

    School apologizes for fried chicken menu for Black History Month

    HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP -- The township schools superintendent apologized to parents for a recent high school lunch menu that served fried chicken to celebrate Black History Month.

    The Feb. 16 lunch menu at Hopewell Valley Central High School also listed corn bread, sweet potato casserole, sauteed spinach, mac & cheese and peach and apple crisps.

    It's not clear who complained about the menu.

    "The decision to include these items without any context or explanation, reinforces racial stereotypes and is not consistent with our district mission and efforts to improve cultural competency among our students and staff," Superintendent Thomas A. Smith wrote in a message to the high school community.

    Smith wrote that district's food service vendor, Pomptonian, had apologized to the district and they are meeting with the company "to reinforce our district values."

    Smith could not be reached for comment Monday. Schools were closed.

    Pomptonian Vice President Cathy Penna said one of their directors - based at the school - worked closely with the high school on creating a menu event to celebrate Black History Month.

    "The suggestion was to do something to celebrate soul food," Penna said in an email. The company tries to offer a diverse menu respecting different cultures, she wrote.

    "Pomptonian deeply regrets that, out of context, this menu may have been perceived by individuals as insensitive or in poor taste," Penna said. "The director at this location never intended to do anything that would offend anyone and deeply regrets the decision and understands that it could have been taken out of context."

    The family-owned company, based in Fairfield and in business over 50 years, says they provide meals to more than 350 schools across the state.

    The high school has about 1,200 students, of which 82 percent are white, 10 percent Asian, 3.8 percent black and 3.6 percent Hispanic, records show.

    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    So why would anyone try to celebrate black history month with cafeteria menu items. Seems really awkward. Just asking for trouble with this one. Maybe some research and to prepare authentic African cuisine may have been better... but still this is pretty dumb.

    Enjoy.

    Man that is some classic funk from the Funk Masters Parliament. Their music caused some steamy house parties back in college as I did the spinning of the wheels of steel. I did enjoy. Can you flash a P-Funk sign?...... *Everybody's got a little light under sun, under sun*

    would it be inconvenient to some of you to request a White History Month ? ......and I'm sure the fried chicken would be no problem.
