The huddle has rules when it comes to this though. Honky can have many diferent meanings but the way he used it was a racial slur for white people. I am just trying to be fair here.

Is there a non-smelly version?

I keed, I keed. :D

Oh great, that was about as funny as yelling Panthro at a hundred man march.

And yet, the words we think are so harmful on the internet and are so afraid of get used all the time in those real life situations.

I disagree, I never hear those words out in the real world. I only hear/read them when people are sitting behind the protective cover of their computer on the internet. I don't see people of different race being intentionally disrespectful and unpolite with others unless they are young girls and they are equal rights offenders on the road...

I believe you. But I do hear them. Maybe not extreme derogatory terms like the N word (though I hear that one a lot between black men) or some of the others, but I definitely hear people of different races having fun with each other. Not just players, either. The Panthers have a lot of black employees. They love to tease you if you're dating a black girl or if you are whiter than Wonder Bread. There's a lot of give and take there.

But is it done in fun or with hate? I have black friends that I will flat out call the N word, (so yes I guess I was lying, I wasn't including friend speak). They know the context and don't take offense, we joke back and forth all the time, it doesn't mean a damned thing, we're friends and know better than to think there's anything derogatory about it...

In fun. If anyone ever said it in hate, they'd be unemployed that day.
