There’s still a negro community?
I thought we integrated those guys…

Not sure it’s ok to use that word, sir…

So we react negatively to the truth now?

Yup. Welcome to the internet.

Now I can see why everyone prefers Red over you.

I’ve been here a while.

So not only are you borderline racist, you’re also ignorant (since people clearly don’t prefer Red). At any rate, I couldn’t give less of a damn about up or downvotes; what I’m trying to establish here is a principle. I’m not going to try and proselytize other people over the internet, but what I’m trying to say is simple: If the freedom of thought and expression be subject to such intense and harsh scrutiny and downright repugnance (as is the case here) on the internet in general and comments sections like this very one, then perhaps we need to take a long, hard look at ourselves and ask if this is right. Downvote me all you like; it’s not spam and you know it.

Could you explain to the rest of us again what exactly he did that’s so racist? Being black myself, I’m finding absolutely nothing offensive about it. If you’ve got a problem with the use of the word “negro” then that’s incredibly stupid of you, because it’s not considered a racist word. We use that word to describe a lot in our culture and a number of our associations and other groups have “negro” in their names. It’s not a bad word, unlike the other “n”-word used to describe us.

Sigh Alright…First off, I don’t get why everyone reacted in such a freaking extreme way. I simply expressed an opinion; I try to be racially sensitive whenever I can; perhaps in this case, the way I was taught to address people precluded the word “negro” from the acceptable terms. It’s not stupid in the least for me to have a “problem” with it; ignorant, perhaps. It’s in fact incredibly arrogant of you to assert that it was stupid of me, since it wasn’t. I never said it was a “bad” word; it’s just the way I was taught. Perhaps I was unaware of this. If you read my original comment, it states that I was not sure. Do you know what that means? It means I didn’t know. Ignorance is something not to be hated (as seems to be the case here), but to be dispelled. Seriously though, Jesus, guys; stop with the hate already; I didn’t know, sorry.

You must be fun at parties.

I don’t have much of an ego, so I can tell you I really did laugh at that; there’s a reason I don’t go to parties: I don’t want to spoil it for everyone else. In fact, now that I know negro is an acceptable comment, your originally posted image is both relevant and humorous, so kudos to you! :D

*acceptable word, sorry.
