Subject: the "N" word
I can’t believe I’m going to defend a white man
using the “N” word.
You may recall I stopped donating for two years
when you showed a Condi “magazine cover” depicting her
as a stupid spear-chucking African tribeswoman.
But weirdly, you got it right about Colin Powell.
I don’t know whether it was intentional or you
just lucked into it.
I consider myself the luckiest man in the world.
I’ll explain the difference. Condoleezza Rice
is a stupid warmongering self-serving incompetent.
However, the depiction was an insult to all black
people because it suggested that they were all like Rice,
or rather that Rice was behaving like black people.
It was an insult to all black people, Africans,
tribeswomen, and yes, spear-chuckers because
it suggested that all were the same.
I could put up a picture of a red wagon and it
would insult somebody.
I'm not sure one man can proclaim what a picture
says or means.
Sleazy has been apppointed to every government
job she's ever had.
Like all of Bush's appointments, her main qualification
seems to be loyalty, not competence.
If I attack her, please don't decide I'm also
attacking someone else.
If I say 'Tom Armstrong Williams' that doesn't
mean every black writer is an Uncle Tom.
In this instance you have used a very specific
and insulting phrase against one person.
In fact, Colin Powell is the Bush family House
N*****. This does not suggest that anyone else
on the planet is a Bush House N*****. Or that
anyone else is a n*****.
has a good definition
Looks like I'm not the only one...
back the media has a defense of the term as applied to Armstrong
Williams a few years back.
This is the same kind of contempt that Jewish
death camp survivors had for those Jews who vainly sought
to avoid extermination by aiding the Nazis in
herding their fellow Jews into the gas chambers and ovens.
Tom Armstong Williams is a great example - he
took money to say Mass Bush was good to the slaves.
He should be laughed out of journalism for that,
but journalism is a joke now, so he fits.
I don’t spell out the “N” word myself because
“Uncle Tom” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncle_Tom
conveys the same thing as House N***** without
the extreme epitaph that I as a white man don’t want to use.
But that is just my preference.
There are two ways to look at that.
If I tell some Monkey to "Eat sh*t and die,"
that asterisk didn't really soften the punch, did it?
Suggesting that Colin Powell, who knowingly lied
to start a war for the White House is anything but
an Uncle Tom or “House N*****” is to give the
warmongering son of a bitch political cover which
he doesn’t deserve. In fact, calling him an Uncle
Tom is probably too pleasant because many people
won’t know what it means. Powell has betrayed
the American people and hundreds of thousands of
African American families who have sacrificed
by serving in this war by lying to start it.
Powell is disgusting and beneath contempt.
We certainly agree on that - thanks for the e-mail.
