What has more power? The Race card or the Gay card?

Details of the Niggardly Controversy

Washington, DC's black Mayor, Anthony Williams, gladly accepted the resignation of his white staff member, David Howard, because Mr. Howard uttered the word 'niggardly' in a private staff meeting.

Webster's Tenth Edition defines the word 'niggardly' to "grudgingly mean about spending or granting". The Barnhard Dictionary of Etymology traces the origins of 'niggardly' to the 1300's, and to the words 'nig' and 'ignon', meaning "miser" in Middle English. No where in any of these references is any mention of racial connotations associated with the word 'niggardly'.

In other words, it's a perfectly good and useful word. But there is the unfortunate coincidence that it starts with the same four letters as the word "nigger". The news media are so loathe to use the "N" word, that they've been substituting the phrase "racial slur", as in "...they mistook the word 'niggardly' for a racial slur..."

Washington, DC's population is 60% black, and it's citizens have been very critical of Mayor Williams for "not being black enough" -- especially because he hired several well-qualified whites to help him run this troubled city.

Racial intolerance, ignorance, and misplaced political correctness have cost a white mayoral aide his job in Washington, DC. And, as many of the other stories on Adversity.Net clearly illustrate, the "niggardly" controversy is only the tip of the "intolerance iceberg".

Good thing Howard wasn't just a regular white dude, or he would have never gotten his job back..

    So really stupid people sans a dictionary make a power play - glad he played the gay card to get his job back but that still doesn't fix the stupidity problem.

    Neither exist and are only a figment of the imagination of racists and homophobes, like most of the reactionaries on this poll.

    Don't you right wing ding bats EVER get tired of putting your vicious ignorance on public display. No wonder you keep losing elections and then whining like little bitches.

    Why should I be kind and loving to racists and homophobes who are not kind and loving to others?

    Those are not admirable qualities worthy of admiration, they are despicable and only worthy of condemnation.

    Don't expect your praises to be sung when you sing a tune that off key and out of step with the tolerant society we are becoming, instead of the backward 1950's land of nostalgia you live in.

    First, I love how white folks like you claim to be always call folks like myself racist, when I am not white.
    Second, how does me reporting what a gay person does make me homophobe?

    Third when you falsely call people racist and homophobe, it is YOU who are playing the race and gay cards.

    And forth, you being nasty to someone who has not been unkind to you is EXACTLY what you are complaining about.


    That's funny!
    lol

    Al you have done is show that you are miserable and a hypocrite that wants to share your ugliness of character.

    The rave is for answering the question, thank you.

    You seem very angry, so this post must have hit close to home for you.

    But if you read the articles, you will find that this whole race card and gay card thing was done COMPLETLY by left wing people like yourself.

    A white person got fired for offending a black person, hence the race card.

    The white person got his job back because he was gay, hence the gay card.

    I didn't make it up, that came from the left.
