While the Italians weren't as oppressed on as large as a level here. I often take "WOP" or "Dego" in stride. No "our word" BS.

The mannerisms of the Italians are funny. I do talk with my hands and I love a slice of pizza or a bowl of gnocchi. The NAACP has created their own monster so they can slay it and be the hero in the end...

That was probably a little harsh... Sorry if its taken that way, but the ENTIRE world needs to lighten up just a bit...

You'd be suprised how many people wouldn't "take these words the wrong way",...but would instead admit the worth of whatever truth lies within them.

And at then make the concious decision to say "F##k you" just based simply upon the person that your are without it being predicated upon your ethnic background at all.

Was that ,......."light enough" ? LMAO

i think it was my attempt at humor (and an obvious swipe of the bigotry of don imus) that was taken offensively.

however there was a method to my madness that wasnt intended to offend anybody. my post pointed out the irony that even if the NAACP replaced "Colored" with the politically correct term of "Afro American" the acronym would then become NAAAAP. i think this would be just as counter productive as still using the term "colored". again, my intent wasnt to offend anybody.

but then again, im one who finds chris rocks, jim carreys, eddie murphys, and richard pryors, sense of humour hilarious so what do i know?

Tone,...as you are obviously refering to me. Let me state for the record that nothing you posted within this thread has anything do do at all with me having any particular grievance.

No Tony, it's pretty obvious who that was intended for, since I was directly quoted in the post.

They specifically stated that nobody--black or white--should use the word.

As far as the "C", isn't it kind of silly to suggest that they change their name every 10 years to keep up with political correctness?

Good point, Godfather. However, isn't political correctness itself rooted in silliness?

I'm sorry guys but I've always found the *n* word disgusting, to hear or heck to even see. I'd love it if I never ever saw or heard it again.
