Rant? I see no rant. I'm merely asking you to clarify your thought process on the use of bigoted slurs towards the "establishment" racial group of a nation; you declined to do that, merely using a lame argument like "are whites really even offended?" That's a tacit endorsement of racial epithets and slurs being directed at a group of people; majority or not.

If I'm incorrect in understanding your stance, then place clarify your position. We're probably not too far away from being on the same page.

Back to the discussion on NFL locker rooms. Again, I state that no slur is acceptable in any workplace. I don't care what the history of it is, I don't care who it upsets; nobody should be using words like those which are meant to demean a human being because of their racial origins. Again, I fail to see what is so hard to understand about that stance - no demeaning racial language of ANY kind.

Again, anything that assaults and insults the race of an individual is a slur. It doesn't matter if they're a minority or not; such words shouldn't be used in any workplace by anyone. To allow for some words to be used while banning others will only cause those "permitted" words to gain acceptance and prevalence in the vernaculars of NFL locker rooms.

Let me see if I understand your stance fully, because you seem to be making this into a social issue and not a workplace issue; since whites represent the majority population in the United States, then it's okay to racially insult them, their women, and their children. But god forbid any of them says something that sounds like a racial slur towards a minority!

Yeah, that's gonna fix the racial divide. Genius!

Yes, those words do have the same potency. They're slurs meant to offend someone with a different skin color than the person saying them. Make it a rule that anyone using ANY racial slur is fined and/or penalized by the league. I don't see the problem with that, and I'm genuinely having trouble understanding why you do.

Or are you implying that ****, towelhead, dotface, and **** are okay to use as well; you know, since they don't have the legacy of slavery and the Jim Crow era attached to them?

Slurs are slurs are slurs. Nobody should be using them.

So will words such as cracker, honkie, and whitey receive the same treatment, or is this merely a case of a 65%-plus African American league making it seem like we're stuck in 1960 Birmingham?

If it's medicinal marijuana, I'm all for it.

Give him Kelsey Grammer's "Fraiser" voice, and I'd follow him to the moon.

But if I don't quote the post, I'll forget what I'm responding to. We old folks are forgetful, ya know.

Too busy waiting for the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Skyrim to come out.

The prior arguments, or raising my post-count? Because I'm more interested in the latter than I am digging out all those old posts for you on the former.

Whooooo! It's almost hump-day!

Again, the conversation on that between you and I ended quite awhile ago. As soon as you actually want to rationally and diplomatically respond to my prior arguments, we can start is up again. Until then though, I'm going to cut loose and just enjoy raising my post-count for no reason whatsoever.

Well, who in their right mind could resist that Simpson villain hairdo?

This conversation is sooooo ten minutes ago. Cut loose. BANZAI!

None taken. It's just the internet.

We had two at Grille #27 in the Short North. Good times. Not as good as it was when we made it to the Finals, but good times nonetheless.

Since it seems that you can't piece together a rational argument at this point, yes.

I haven't lobed any insults his/her way. I'm looking to have an open discussion about what the present facts are concerning the labor talks. If he/she can't actually respond to the arguments, then it's best to just concede defeat and move on.

I love you right now.

And this post is proof as to why you don't need to be involved in any kind of serious discussion about this topic.
