Well someone got what I was saying then.
Mine was just a shorter version.

maybe I could have worded it a bit different, but I thought people would know what I was getting at.

It seems to be ok for black people to call each other N***er and I've even heard it said to White and Asian guys, but always a black guy saying its.
say it back and YOUR the racist.

I also think its funny how we have the MOBO awards, BET TV and Black history month.

What if we had the WOBO awards, Wet TV or white history month.
I personally think there would be an outcry from all White/Blacks/Asians saying its racist to have these things.

I've also applied for jobs in the past that I was turned down for and I quote this 'As the advertisement stated the position is only open to people from the ASIAN community'.
what so a white or black man/women can't plant a fucking flower bed or rose bush.


If you ask me, I don't have time to worry about race, EVER-ONES a cunt until proven otherwise.

OrkByTheGraceOfGork Rot Rot Rot. I'll make up your mind for you. Louis CK is funny and that was hilarious!

Check out his other stand up.

ROT I can't decide if he's funny.. or a dick.

OrkByTheGraceOfGork Yeah, racism sucks. Especially if you're on the receiving end. It can also be demoralizing for the individuals who exact it. I'm only half white and I have received a fair amount of shit growin up especially from my dad's side of the family. It's true, it doesn't just come from the white folk, also. In the end you can't make people like you. It's an evolution you gotta roll with. People in general are dicks and if it's not race, they'll find something else to hate you about. I hate all people and races equally. On the other hand, I enjoy most races, cultures and traditions. I find them interesting. Most of them have something to contribute.

Louis CK had something funny to say about race.
