Do people in the military need to be doing this on base? C'mon guys.

But the best part are some of the comments.
Like this one. "Meh.... I am white and could care less."

Since Trump was elected, things like this seem to happen a lot more frequently. Are we going in the wrong direction or has it always been this way I wonder.

All inputs are welcomed and it not about being "PC" but please be respectful.

Unacceptable. I felt race relations were much worse under Obama with him constantly stoking the fire. I guess it depends on where you live.

My tin foil hat theory is that minorities are more and more doing this on their own as a "false flag" scenario. Most of these are the work of minorities and NOT the work of white racists / supremacists, in my opinion.

You are all smart enough to connect the dots as to why.

Racial slurs, bigotry, etc, is NEVER acceptable! I didn't tolerate and I know the SNCO's and Officers I worked with and for, didn't either. At the very hint of this, I SQUASHED IT WITH A IRON FIST, as my fellow Leaders did as well. Is it present? Sure it is, we are all human and we all come from different backgrounds and how we were raised. But that's an excuse....not permission to do so.

LM, I find your statement completely biased and really low even from a liberal. If you really want to see clearly, just think back to the Black Panther standing in front of the voting polls intimidating folks.....and the AG POS not doing a D@MN thing about it. I could go on and on...but no need to. Human nature is just that. It always will be...but I hope in time this type of stain on humanity becomes less and less.

Let me correct your statement: 'Since President Trump was elected, things like this seem to be covered more by the left leaning liberal media then it did under the Obama administration'. There, that is more accurate.

In my opinion, a black person did that. Just like a black cadet did with a racial slur against blacks in the Air Force Academy last november.

Anyone recall when Esco and WickedClown got in an argument here? Wow.

I have heard and seen that word thousands of times. Pretty much always comming out of the mouth of a black guy. Bizzare.

It's just an observation from my perspective.

It's not an attack on Trump supporters and please stop calling me a liberal? Have I declared anywhere on RR that I'm a liberal? No...because I'm not. I'm no republican or democrat either. I am an observer if anything else.

I just see the state of things in the US and I am curious if you see the same things.

I know all about that and that was very stupid of those cadets that did that, but this is a different case and there is a possibility it wasn't the done by another black person. And it could be another academy case. But i really don't think a black guy will pull that again now they know they can be easily found out. I'm sure there are cameras all over the place on that camp.

But, until otherwise discovered, I think it's smart to treat this incident as a hate crime perpetrated someone other than whom the slur was directed.

Ill be honest with you all... I went to go see Black Panther two weeks ago... Now keep in mind this is a Marvel Movie... and normally marvel movies are full of Nerds (like me)...

but this was not the case this time... I did notice that the theater had a significant showing of Black viewers... no big deal to me... Im a Marvel movie fan and this was simply another movie in the series that is tied in with the Infinity Gauntlet story that I read in the comic books back in the 90s.

The movie was so - so... kinda like Spider Man Home coming... nothing to get excited about (unlike Thor Ragnarok)

What was annoying during the movie was how many viewers simply couldnt keep their mouths shut... constant "yeah you go girl" and "huh no...he didnt"... not to mention all the cell phone lights. the worst was the black girls twerking on their way out... seeming unable to control their exuberance. Some patrons were even chanting Wakanda in your face... not realizing Wakanda is a fictional place that doesnt even exist. Others doing the cross arm gesture like gang signs... Ive been exposed to Marvel Fandom many times before... but this time it was akin to dealing with short Italians with severe cases of Napoleonic syndrome coming out of a rocky movie in the 90s.

I hated the political overtones in the movie, it was obvious in many instances that it was focused on the current administrations "perceived" policies in a negative way.

once the credits started rolling, if your a Marvel Move fan, you sit your butt down and wait for the two post credit scenes... well guess who were the only ones that stayed for that....

now as per that act of vandalism... it could have been anyone. likely someone who hated the movie ALOT.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

That word shouldn't be said at all by anyone, but the context of the why and how another black guy says it to another black guys is utterly different.

There has never been a scenario where a white person calls a black person that and it's simply meant as friendly banter or a term of endearment. Have you heard of such a thing?

How can you say this has never happened without being dishonest?

Obummer started much of this, he did more racial dividing then another other person since the 60's due to his severe corruption and personal bias. he literally crapped on American values.

Black culture was thrown in a biased way into the lime light. They were able to literally get away with murder, and liberal judges and mayors and other corrupt politicians let them run wild like animals burning down their own cities and basically being allowed to crap in their own backyards with the biased media clapping while they destroyed their own city.

Normal people so fed up with this biased corruption elected Trump to stop this perversion of humanity the previous administration started.

You have no clue who might or might not pull that "again". And it rea;;y does not matter who the hell did it, no matter what color skin it was wrong.

The spelling of "phat" almost makes it a positive black on black context as you mentioned, which is not the same as stereotypical usage of other colors.

Either way wrong. If blacks don't want the word used, they have to stop using it themselves. Special treatment or privilege is still racism. And I know many people of all colors who repeat the word in context heard from people of color, "peformers" who make the word popular.

The cultural differences have always been fascinating.

If I ever used the word "Ni***r", no matter what the context my parents would have beaten the crap out of me. It is so much of a no no that in the extremely rare cases it is ever mentioned even today it is referred to as "the N word" not "Ni***r", and spoken in a low voice to be extra sure no one outside the context of conversation overheard it to prevent their heads from exploding.

The black kids on the other hand could say anything they want, be as obnoxious and racist as they pleased, be completely exempt from it all, and at the flip of a switch be as offended as hell. Weaponized hypocrisy. Absolutely brilliant. How do you do it?

Maybe it is just cracker parents went about it all the wrong way? What if instead of beating us they said, try to be nice, but remember, sticks and stones... sticks and stones... if anybody gets all pissy at you for something you (or in this case someone else) say(s), tell them " sticks and stones.... and BTW you are hogging the ball".

Watch at YouTube

The next scene is also pretty spectacular, " Who taught you that word Ralphy? " " It,, was,, Billy Fringlebingle " (it wasn't actually, but he doesn't like billy fringlebingle) ( Mom rushes to the phone) " Mrs Fringlebingle, do you know what your son told my son?..." ( Screams and whacking and more whacking and screams as Billy Fringlebingle gets his ass wooped...)

bingo!

heard it a million times... black kids calling "white folks" cracker, trailer park trash, in-bread red neck, honky, white bread b!tch, Nazi MotherF$%ker....

but throw the N word out there and people go nuclear if spoken by someone with less melanin that the recipient group....

WTF
