Anyway, Hahn and Gyno made good points. I didn't see anything wrong in Hahn's post. If Hahn had just said men, I would have assumed he meant "white" men unless otherwise stated.
Tank: The N word thing is a huge double standard, but at the same it's the media that makes it seem like we all say that. At least, I don't say it. People who know me call me either Tyrone, Ty, or T-Bone. People who don't know me usually call me champ, dawg, or big man. That reminds me, I've been wanting to get that book on this topic by Randall Kennedy, a black Harvard professor. It's titled, "N*****: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word."Seems like a good read.Kennedy traces the word's history in literature, song, film, politics, sports, everyday speech, and the courtroom. He also discusses its plastic, contradictory, and volatile place in contemporary American society. Should it be eradicated from dictionaries and the language? Should it be, somehow, regulated? What is the significance of its emergence among some blacks as a term with "undertones of warmth and good will"? Do blacks have a historical right to its use or does that place the term under a "protectionist pall"? With courage and grave measure Kennedy has, in effect, created a forum for discussion of the word he calls a "reminder of the ironies and dilemmas, the tragedies and glories, of the American experience." --H. O'Billovitch
In my observations of when the term "white trash" was used, it was used by one white person (usually female) to describe another white person they didn't like more so than a black person describing another white person. I would also put the term "wigger" in that observation as well.
