Honkey and Cracker are funny. If we had been beaten, chained, shipped across ocean, beaten, forced to work, beaten more, refused equal opportunities and treated as subhumans or rounded up and put to work in concentration camps while being starved and branded and likely put to death while being called Honkey or Cracker then I might not think it was funny. But that hasn't happend to us Honkeys and Crakcers so I think it's pretty funny.

Where do I go to find this Racism Grading System you seem to be familiar with?

So some racism is "funny" and OK? And some isn't?

Is it OK with you if I find all examples of racism abhorrent? You can approve of the "funny" racism if you wish.

 

Please point out where I said all racism was okay or funny, because I did not.

 

My response of laughter was to the absurdity of it. That word has no attachment to history. It barely even registers with me. Can you not comprehend how vastly different this would be if you were black and called the N word?

 

You sure are going out of your way to be offended here. You poor thing. The injustice!!!!

so I'm ignorant because my opinion doesn't match your opinion?  Too bad, so sad I suppose

 

it's only some that consider thug to be a racial term by the way...look up the webster's definition...

 

 

: a brutal ruffian or assassin

 

so yes...in my ignorant opinion of the word thug...Capone would be one

So you call DCK out for using the word stereotyping, when Kaepernick is clearly being stereotyped.  Then you basically defend ol dude who called him a thug, then post a definition of the word thug, and Kaep is clearly not a ruffian or assassin.

 

KT was right about a lot of things on this board.  Too bad he got clapped for speaking the truth.

Couldn't he have picked niner's colors for shoes if that coordinating thing was so important?

 

I interned and did a co-op for Honda Manufacturing.  So since I worked for Honda, I was supposed to drive a Honda; even if I'm not a particular fan of Honda cars?  

 

Man, ya'll get out of here with all that.  He can wear whatever he wants to wear.

Somebody proposed a rule or a law where Colin Kaepernick wasn't allowed to wear what he wants to wear?

 

Holy crap!  Where?

Strangely enough, people react to other people.

 

Football fans react to football players.

 

Confusing for you, I know.  Just understand that when you're the face of a franchise, you're judged on a very much higher level.  Just ask Cam.

 

And the most childish reaction to being called out on anything is the classic teenage "You're not the boss of me! I'll do what I want!"

 

You sure will, Colin... you sure will.  I hope you KEEP doing it.

the bottom line is this:

 

some people find the word offensive, especially when you label somebody who has a degree from the University of Nevada in business management and has no trouble from the law, set up his own charity and appears to be an ok dude.  There are racial connotations to the word thug that are similar to the N word in some people's mind.  There is a terrible history behind the word. I know you didn't say it, but that is why people don't like it.

 

the word honkey has no known origin. there is no history behind it. Someone just decided it was offensive. literally no white people i know are offended by it. i don't see why anybody would be.

 

what he said about wearing the hat after the fact was stupid though.

Mighty funny how it's "when you're the face of a franchise, your judged on a very much higher level" when it pertains to Kaep, but when Cam is being judged, you're mighty quick in here to defend him.

 

Just how it's silly when Cam gets judged and talked about for his "towel over the head", "clothing line", etc; it's silly to judge Kaep for wearing the hat of his choice.

 

Now, that may be confusing for you.

I could give a crap what people wear. I do however care that I am forced to see someones underwear. That, to me, is offensive. Pull your fugging pants up. Wear a belt if you are unable to buy pants that actually fit.

It don't care about him wearing any cap. I have a problem with how he handled the response he got. That was a childish response to fans of his own team. Fug him, and I am glad I don't have to watch him.

Every generation goes through this. Trying to show they are individuals. I have no problem with that either. All I want is to walk through the mall and not see 100 pair of underwear. Ridiculous. Grown men do not go around showing their underwear. It is classless and childish.

I wouldn't be if he was wearing a Seahawks hat (et.al.)

 

That's just some dumb shit.

 

Somehow, though Cam has been seen in basketball hats and baseball caps, he's NEVER BEEN SEEN wearing the hat of an NFL competitor.

 

Weird, right?  Cam must not know fashion.
