. . . Sharpton asked Jeantel about the “cultural disconnect” between her and many of the people who watched her testify on TV, noting that he didn’t have any trouble understanding her when she spoke. “You know, I’ve always been against young folks, including my daughters, using the ‘n- word’ and ‘cracka,’ although I used it when I was younger,” he said. “But we understood that wasn’t trying to make a race statement, that’s just the way some of y’all talk, though we kind of tell y’all not to.”

    He used racial slurs when he was younger? Hmmm, so did Paula Dean.
    Let's take Sharpton's career from him too.

    And EVERYONE was ALL over Paula Dean....if it is "racist" for Paula it is definately RACIST for HIM! He isn't losing "his" job or livelihood though is HE! Amazing how it is OK for Blacks to call other races names but NOT OK for someone to say a "word" years ago when they had been assaulted by that race, because they are white.

    Yeah, but still, one might just wonder if Sharpston ever picked 300 LBS of Cotton in one day, too . . . ? ? Huh? [Would a "Manager" want to make him worth holding to the "high-end" of an Auction; or would he want to get rid of him, right away?] I would still like to hear Sharpton elaborate on some of this stuff . . . After all, he brought it up . . . It must be a significant Topic to someone . . . ? ? ?

    The origin of "Cracker" is based in Slavery, Slave owners "Crack" of the Whip....obviously no White person is a slave owner currently in America-----calling someone a "Cracker" is a racist insult and enables the continuation of victim Black vs White Slave master mentality toward present White Americans..
    In my opinion the whole "N" word issue is also blown out of proportion--My Heritage was called all type slurs.."WOP" "Guinie" etc etc, not to mention the profiling of all Italians as the "MOB and"The MAfia"-------we don't cry and play the victim role like some group we know

    Funny because I hear kids say saltines when they are refering to white people as crackers. I don't believe even they know the orginial meaning to the reference cracker.

    Rachael Jeaantel said putting an "A" at the end of any word makes that word not racist. She said this on Piers Morgan when talking about the Racism revealed by using the Word "Cracker" she said Cracka is fine....so the "N" word with an "A" after it is acceptable -----granted she's an absolute ignorant fool but Piers Morgan granted her the Ebonics professor

    I want to see Daytime TV go into the SAME seizures and angst-ridden poses over Sharpton's comment, that they would have if any prominent white man expressed the same disdain for uppity negroes.

    In this case I would disagree, because it's in the context of the past. It's like when Sen. Byrd got in trouble for this:



    And all the usual idiots and Serious People (but I repeat myself) were so 'outraged.' Easily one of the more beautiful things I've ever heard a politician say in my lifetime, certainly better than any of the puppets in the Oval Office's pre-written teleprompter ready speeches. And I don't like Byrd.
  • Jim thekool... 2013/07/20 00:58:37
    Jim
    Fair enough. I watched the video and the late Senator Byrd was right about the constant agitation of racism in the mass mind. Trouble is that the agitation has always been very one-sided and the media relishes being the adversary against Whites in such confrontation.

    Unfortunately, the agitators cannot be depended on to let sleeping dogs lie, as Senator Byrd desired. Race agitators will stop ONLY when those dogs bite them! Hence, my belief that Al Sharpton and his ilk must be forced to drink their own poison.

    It is a word being used to denigrate one particular race in a negative light. Who really cares what the word is but more on what context it is used. We are talking about Al Sharpton here though and everyone already knows he is a racist to the max!
