casaledana Drug enforcement in this country is FUCKED.

The fact that Marijuana and Peyote are schedule 1 (worst classification) while Cocaine and Meth are schedule 2 is about the craziest thing I've ever heard.

UberBored21 Well I mean if she had a kid at 20 and then that kid had a kid at 20 and then that kid had a kid at 20 she'd have a 2 year old great grand kid. Not THAT crazy.

I don't think it is "HER" great grandmother though is it?

bubba5658 Cool. Since I'm sure you don't watch the show, who'd you get your talking point from?

Holy fuck. This isn't a joke or parody. This is real.

If you want something a little more reasonable, the mixed pants are on sale for only $769.

johncourage No it isn't. Same reason black people can say the N word and white people can't. I'm also not saying that white people can't make the comment about names, however when it comes from a black person it is clearly not a derogatory comment about black people.

megrendel Not saying you watch fox news. That talking point about "what about the view?" got said somewhere, and I guarantee Fox News is running it, and then it spread through the conservative sphere because a BUNCH of people are saying it and it came from somewhere.

It is groupthink whataboutism. Like I said. You're better than that.

megrendel "all such utterances"

We don't get to use context or degrees? You just said "intent" was important. 

If they fire one person for saying "nigger" they have to fire another person for making a bad joke about "liking fried chicken"? Not all racially inappropriate comments are created equal. Come on.

megrendel You honestly think if Rosie Odonnel would have said that a black person looked like planet of the apes she would still have her job? She would have been fired just as quickly. There isn't a fucking doubt in my mind. You're trying to make this out to be a double standard and it just isn't.

1. raven-simone is black. That isn't a racist comment. It is a ghetto comment. That would be like if I said I wasn't going to hire simone named sunflower or moonbeam. Does that mean I'm racist against white people?

2. That's insensitive, but it is true. I live in Phoenix. I travel a lot. I've come across hundreds and hundreds of hotel maids. In the northeast they are asian. In the southwest they are hispanic. In florida they are cuban. In the midwest they are black. In the north east they are hispanic or black. I honestly can't say that I have ever met a white hotel maid. You're a straight talker. What's your problem with that?

3. That's a bit racist in that is mocking another language.

Do you think any of those 3 statements had, as you said, "racist intent"? Come on. This is a stretch. None of these even get into the ballpark of saying a black person looks liek a monkey and you know it.

I find it difficult to believe that you watch the View. Someone on Fox News or somewhere else made this View connection and now conservatives have added it to their talking points. You are like the 20th person I've seen say it. Come on. You're better than that.

megrendel there is the view thing again. Someone else said that. Explain please.

OK so according to my travels in the right wing media sphere the predominant excuse seems to be that it can't be racist since VJ is so light skinned she doesn't really count as black.

I can't believe I share a country with these people.

markust people on breitbart are freaking the fuck out and calling for a ban on abc and disney. It's hilarious.

Trump supporters love to say racism has nothing to do with it, but man do they love to bend over backwards to defend racism.
