You all have your panties in a bunch because this model is being racist (correctly so, the upset that is). She does not call for genocide because she is incapable of doing and what do you know about genocide anyway. Gods what is wrong with people here! When people say but how can a "mere" song upset you, you go all up in arms and make wild claims of genocide and then turn around and wonder why a "mere" racist word might upset others so much.
In fact, killa in his post African Tech does admit that a racist term borne of real racism would hurt a white person, but you overlooked that and he too missed the meaning of his own post.
the nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry & depression
But yeah, I'm not offended by racist words, it's racism put into action that bothers me.
As part of a larger conversation, I don't get why words offend people at all. Like swear words, for example. Words are just tools to impart meaning, nothing more. I'd be much more bothered if someone seriously told me he wanted to gut me like a fish with a rusty knife than when someone tells me to f(#$ off. Meaning and intent, that's the important part, not the actual sounds.
"If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl."
People can think what they want, but not say what they want.
so lets say... some dude somewhere is irritating me, and i call him a "k" and he is white... is that still racist ?

This morning on the "Justice Factor" Justice Malala called Leandra a "bloody racist" live on TV
Wonder if he will do the same with this woman.
