I got thread banned a couple of days ago at another forum for typing dindu in a general statement. Not as a reply to anyone. :smiley_ROFLMAO: I appealed and lost.
They told me they don't allow thug, dindu or coon.

I went back to the home page and there was one of your old post mates calling President Trump and the GOP , thugs.

Evidently thug can be used to describe one set of people but not another. :geez:

Your 100% correct. Young impressionable minds looking for a hangout may not think much of us when they see words like that. If we run off 1st time visitors we’ll never bring them over to our side. But in all fairness, if the black folks would stop calling each other that word I think it would go away much faster.

He sucker punched the young girl with a savage blow, while his girlfriend was beating up her mother in front of him. That's why the daughter got out of the trunk. Both ladies had terrible bruises to the face, the mother had two black eyes - bad ones! As of last night, police had photograph's of the two and are looking for them. Started over "cold chicken meal" which the mother refunded their money for, next thing you know - her and her daughter are getting beat up outside their own shop. Happened in Savannah, Georgia, a kinky - beautiful - genteel Southern city.

This is Georgia - can't imagine no retaliation in that state. Had it been a colored mother and daughter who were the victim's, CNN would have broadcast it repeatedly for at least two straight weeks, with full analysis by BLM; the ACLU; DOJ; FBI and all the other libbie controlled agencies that rise up instantly against whites. Sharpton and Jackson would have been at their bedside within two hours - than broadcasting nationwide outside to a bevy of microphones, screaming racism. Funny - Trump can't get an audience on the MSM, but a Sharpton, and every Democrat in existence gets one immediately......... Stan ......

Speak for yourself. I had a nigga steal me once, at the ballfield. He ruined mah bicycle and punched me in the face. Big ol' boy, about 6'5"

Then I caught him out by himself. I layed into him hard. At one point, I punted his face and it swept him off his feet.

I beat the hell out of him, then drug him down to the water and was gonna drown him, but then I decided not to.


Then I had to drag that 195 lbs up the embankment.

I did. He didn't ever mess with me


again after that.

He better not ever again, either., next time he's dead.

He's 265-275 now, he still better not mess with me, I ain't playin'.

Me and his sister were always friends.

I agree with ya 100% Tom-Cruise . However, your "spear throwers" is referred to as "spear chuckers" here. "Monkeys" is equal to "Porch monkeys". "nig-nogs is a new one on me but we used to say "Nig-Jig" or "Jig" for short.


On a serious note, I find it somewhat offensive if I see the word niggre in a title on our beloved Trinnity Forums. I feel that it is something that should not be out there for all to see.

I remember back on Political Jack it had to be announced. Some people insisted on putting the vilest things right out there on the headline. I've seen the announcement on more than one board. Just surprised you're thinking "wow" I guess.

It still feels like snark.

I don't approve of the radical far right - no. They have to be told not to throw around the word N*&^@! in a public place.

THAT says a great deal about some of the posters around here.The radical far left wants to limit free speech, as you just demonstrated.

You have no right to approve, or not, of others' speech.

Are you as loud in condemnation of rap "artists" and their "lyrics"?They are allowed to use the word. It isn't racism because the radical far left defines racism differently then how it is actually understood by lucid people. Racism is making judgments or taking action based upon skin color. For a far left social justice oriented person of color or white ally, racism is prejudice plus power. And only white people can have power, no matter if they are the minority or not in power. It follows that only white people can be racist. This is the thinking behind the white privilege onslaught on young minds. The narrative says that racism is systematic and not personal, and all white people are racist because they have power because they benefit from being born white. They must spend their entire life atoning for the sin of being born white and can never escape the charge of being racist because it is an inborn trait because the system benefits them and oppresses people of color. Being colorblind is racism because it does not acknowledge the identity of people of color even though race is a social construct invented by white people to entrench white supremacy. White people are expected to shut up and acknowledge their privilege and racism. People of color can say anything they want because of slavery, and Manifest Destiny, or exclusion laws. Only they can be oppressed. They are incapable of oppressing others because they are not white. Even if they are the majority they are still not racist because white privilege gives white people power. As long as white people exist the power dynamic will always be against the people of color. It shouldn't take much imagination as to what the end game of this kind of thinking entails.

That's what the thread's about, and the question of whether to announce or not has no lean to it. A right winger said "US" and I answered him.
Uh-huh, do you even know what you are posting?

I'm still on break from the forum. Having life issues. I'm just visiting and happened to see this.

I wanted to say I feel @Trinnity (http://thepoliticsforums.com/member.php?u=7) is absolutely correct here. It's a matter of optics. Guests come and read our threads. Those just lurking looking for opinions do as well. When we use hate speech, especially without context as in a short thread title,it creates a perception of racism here. Anyone who has been here long enough knows you all don't mean harm by it nor do you really mean anything by it....but the guests don't. The users who are not here often or who are not regulars do not know this. We're creating an atmosphere we won't be able to bring the forum back from. I know you all mean well and it's really just part of the discussion. Here and there is fine...but it has been rather excessive in the past few months. I stand behind Trin on this topic.

Just my two cents. I'm going back into the shadows. Life is not going well for me right now. Hope you all are doing well.

Because of the attitudes of the radical right around here; it HAD to be announced. That's bad. And what's with the @?

Well, it's not so much snark as it is - wow, that's bad that something like that had to be announced.

Well duh; it's sad that it had to be announced that we shouldn't just be throwin out the word Ni#$@!

I don't approve of the radical far right - no. They have to be told not to throw around the word N*&^@! in a public place. THAT says a great deal about some of the posters around here.

The announcement DID say that the word could be used in thread titles and I would think some other appropriate type of labeling for a point, but to have to announce it like it's sort of regularly used by some, says something...I'm on four boards, and the word, along with others, has been used before, but not to the point that admin had to announce to stop using it.

And you're one the guys that the announcement was aimed at.Stop stirring shit, mk? You're enjoying this way too much. It's inflammatory and in bad taste. It comes off looking like this:

I got thread banned a couple of days ago at another forum for typing dindu in a general statement. Not as a reply to anyone. :smiley_ROFLMAO: I appealed and lost.
They told me they don't allow thug, dindu or coon.

I went back to the home page and there was one of your old post mates calling President Trump and the GOP , thugs.

Evidently thug can be used to describe one set of people but not another. :geez:

Well, anyone who has been around long should know about the double standard in regards to anything racial...to avoid trouble....just remember this: blacks are always innocent victimes and whites and republicans are always racist....not complicated.

I prefer the term 'Negro' that is a respectful term...or at least it was when I was growing up....maybe that is why it is no longer politically correct...they like something more dramatic like black....which in history was one of the first terms for them but that changed to Negro...been so many changes in what they approve of it is kinda hard to keep up....i expect them to ban african-american soon as it is becoming recognized as connected too much with criminal activity aka every day on the crime report...dis african american did dat...dis african american did dis....obviouosly that woid must be changed to something that connotes innocence...how bout...'angelic peoples of color' a tad long but it might help their image.

In the household I was brought up in the N word was used exclusively to describe a person from Afreaka.... coons, nig-nogs, monkeys, spear throwers..etc etc
The point I am trying to make is this, although being English and having a pretty thorough knowledge of every word to describe a black person I do not use it willy nilly.
If I choose to use those words posted above it would be an insult, and the recipiant would know the insults were coming.Is that the black version of eggnog?

Awesome Big Bird ! I did the patches thing about twenty years ago. I stayed with the larger patch for a longer time. One time, a patch fell off under my short and I did not realize it. I became very irritable but never made the connection (of patch being gone). My helper at work told me "You better shut the hell up and leave me alone or I am going to shove a pack of cigarettes down your throat"!

I went home and installed another patch to carry out the rest of the day.
