    Im sure the War Room as a problem with interracial couples.

    Like I said, I have no idea how exactly it was said so I didn't judge.


    But the OP is quite clear...He thinks because somebody is simply married to a black chick/has black kids...He suddenly can't say anything racist about blacks....and Im simply saying that it isn't true.

    What the GM said wasn't racist though (Nothing he said does he imply at all that whites are superior to blacks)

    It's about consistency. Racism doesn't bother me all that much. You can be as racist as you want, but you look terrible when you turn around and complain about the racism of others. Be more self-aware.

    I can see how this can be viewed as racist/prejudice but growing up here in the north, 'redneck' just meant you're from the south, whereas people from the north like myself are 'yanks'.

    I have plenty of family down South, I gotta ask them about this haha.

    I'll use whatever language I feel like using when I feel like using it because I'm an American and that's my right.

    Thanks. Enjoy your troll burn.

    People use the term 'redneck' in a disparaging way against white people. I've been called redneck before and I'm this articulate kid from California lol

    In his joke he is saying that in addition to having normal family arguments there is a comical clash of cultures/races involved and the kids are a mixture.

    How can anyone remotely interpret it as a racial attack on his own children?

    Oh yeah liberals have that unique mixture of braindead+social awkwardness+no decency going on.

    I'm not telling you to not use racist language, of course that's your right. I'm saying that you in particular, who complain about racism, look like a fool after I confront you for using racially charged language and your first defense is to say you were "trolling" (as if that makes it better) and your second defense is to claim that you can use racial slurs if you want to.

    By all means, continue, but this is exactly why no one will take you seriously when you accuse people of racism in the future, not to mention the hypocrisy of it. But like I said, by all means, continue.

    The only thing that makes you racist is your intent.

    Otherwise it's just words.

    norcal or socal? it's funny because we'd never call anyone a redneck up here unless jokingly because they would have "southern qualities/habits" (ie. walking around barefoot, overalls etc.).

    Another pointless racial issue in America for people to get worked up about.

    I don't know that redneck is a racial slur. A lot of them seem to take pride in it. I understand that the context of the statement in which you responded to would be offensive, but most likely because redneck was equated with being dumb bible thumpers.

    I don't agree with that. I know plenty of "rednecks", and most are good people. My sister-in-law, who is black, is married to a redneck who says he's a redneck. Good dude. We get along well. They catch shit for it though, even from family. His family is from Mississippi so some of the elders hate it. Most are good with it.

    The Hawks ran their previous GM off (Danny Ferry) all because he was paraphrasing something that a Cavs scout said about a black player. Dude was really good at his job too (he somehow suckered the Nets into taking Joe Johnson's contract and traded Josh Smith).

    The same can be argued of Niggga/er. Context is everything. Clearly this was not friendly banter.

    The two terms aren't on the same level, in general. I agree that context matters though.

    Naw it's just a term used and thrown around to be "mean" usually when they're mad. I've been called white boy and redneck quite a few times on the job and it's always from a angry minority. Imagine I did the reverse and called them brown boy or black boy? It's w/e, not a big deal, the whole point though is pointing out the hypocrisy. Words truly do hurt minorities though, but it's ok for them to use it. The logic of it all needs to be challenged more.
