The two distinctions were created to be synonymous. Funny jokes...misleading quotes.

So are you OK with Black stereotypes, or only if it comes from a black guy?

I don't care anything at all about stereotypes. I care about the socioeconomic rise and independence of the Black community in whatever way it takes to achieve it. I lost interest in debunking stereotypes for other people outside of my culture a while ago. It's a lost cause. If you're asking would I feel different if a White man did a comedy routine about the same things, probably so. I'd feel different if a random guy called me a name as opposed to my brother, cousin, or friend. I have an understanding with the individuals I listed, just as we have a cultural understanding on things in our community.

If you're asking me about the "n" word specifically, I won't lose sleep if I read about someone other than a Black person using it. If it's directed towards me or said around me by someone outside of my race, I'd probably feel inclined to react then.

I don't find these concepts difficult to understand, but I know plenty of people who want to make them difficult. I let them do it for someone else.

Actually it has been used so much in comedy that I think it is funny. Only Democrats and the fake news media continue to keeping revering to the word as hate speech to support their narrative as hate speech.

Personally... I don't know any white people that use the word unless as pure comedy or a way of describing the worst part of the black community. Like I said... Chris Rock says it best.

The protests don't bother me. I don't pay much attention to them. I figure a couple of the guys sitting during the anthem are actually passionate about their cause, the rest are just trying to be contrarian cool.

If they wanna make a political statement and their bosses are cool with it, then go for it. But, just my opinion, pissing off most of the general public is a stupid way to protest. They're certainly not winning people over to their cause.

I know white people who use it in all forms and fashions and I find nothing funny about it whatsoever. Chris Rock may have said it best to you, but he most certainly doesn't speak on my behalf. I don't care to partake in the Democrat vs Republican/Liberal vs Conservative debates. None of these things represent me, nor were they created with me and mine in mind. History fuels that word being considered hate speech. It has nothing to do with political identity. White people shouldn't be using it to describe any part of the Black community, but seeing how it has no bearings on socioeconomics, it's not at the top of my priority list.

This is where the road splits for many who want to see the Black community succeed by any means, rather working with others...

These jackasses need to realize that their efforts are an insult to most of those who put on the uniform.

You want to protest Trump, Obama or any other politician or cause then feel free but the national anthem and the flag are not the vehicle to do so.

Spoiled millionaires out of touch with mainstream America as Americans pony up the dough for their pay checks.

Men and women died, were maimed, or gave up time with their families to provide a safe place for you to be filthy rich and you spit in their face by disrespecting this nation.

Sure this country is not perfect, but its as close as it gets on earth.

NFL will suffer as a whole for allowing this to continue and expand in scope... you should all be cut and allowed to find a job here in the real world with the rest of us. I can guarantee that players are available to take each and every one of your places...


PS - to the Saints players participating, I hope all 10 of you are cut
