    How about this, you go into work tomorrow and call and African American coworker the N word and see if you get in trouble.
    You aren't going to do it, because you know it is a punishable offense.
    No I am not going to do it because I am not racist!
    But if you did, would you get in trouble?

    Yes.
    What do you mean by trouble?
    If the coworker you called a N'er went to your superior, would you be disciplined?
    Not sure. How can you make that assumption? I am never going to find out.

    Ah good news.
    I just checked my old Kings Island workers manual.
    If I make any racist or otherwise inflammatory marks, I may be terminated at my immediate supervisors discretion. I will not be considered for rehire.

    There you go.
    An officially sanctioned punishment.

    But they hand that manual out to all there employees, not just the caucasians.

    Are you seriously trying to say that when a white person calls someone a n'er they don't get in trouble?
    Are you serious?

    One example, Dog the bounty hunter lost his show.

    another example, Michael Richards.


    Barack Obama regularly attends a racist church.
    I am not saying Barack Obama is a racist, I will say the opposite.
    Barrack Obama is NOT a racist. But he does regularly listen to Racist Sermons.
    Now, Imagine if John McCain regularly went to David Duke seminars.
    Would he be a major candidate?
    Absolutely not.


    Reverse Racism is fine and dandy in this society.
    He lost his show because of this!!!!!!!!!!!11

    http://www.aetv.com/dog_the_bounty_hunter/dog_fff_about.jsp

    Do your research next time.
    Huh? GBS is correct. Do your research. Show me in that link where hs show was canceled due to that 2006 arrest?

    Dog did not lose his show because of the arrest, it was simply hard to film new episodes while he was in jail.

    His show was pulled because of his racist comment, but was re-instated just over a month ago & that is the fact.

    The star's TV show Dog The Bounty Hunter was reinstated this week (ends24Feb08). The series was axed following Chapman's taped racial slur last November (07).
    http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/article/chapman%20sympathetic%20towards%20criminals_106271 3

    I do my research.
    Regardless, it was still re-instated proving my point that there was no real punishment.

    If I, being in the Air Force, was to call someone by racist term today, I would be violating the UCMJ.
    This is what would happen:

    1. I would be court martialed and found guilty.
    2. I would be stripped of my rank.
    3. The Air Force would likely yank money out of my bank account.
    4. Good chance I would be dishonorably discharged from the military.

    So pretty much my life would suck.
    Not that I would ever do that.
    But that's an example of how someone can get in trouble for using racist terms.

    The fact that you guys are defending this guy baffles me.
    I know everyone has the right to their own opinion, but it just seems ridiculous to me.
    Nobody is really defending the guy. The main argument here was if there is a punishment or not. Good example on a punishment by the way.

    Example of a white guy being punished for saying a rascist remark!
    This one is easy

    Jimmy the Greek.
    He was an oddsmaker for football games.
    Now to some of you kiddies he means nothing, but to a few old timers, he was a regular on CBS NFL Football sunday show.
    He said something kind of off beat and rascist.
    He stated the fact that african americans were better athletes due to being from the biggest and best slaves of africa.
    Boom he created such a firestorm. He never worked in the TV industry again.

    Punish
    –verb (used with object)
    1. to subject to pain, loss, confinement, death, etc., as a penalty for some offense, transgression, or fault: to punish a criminal.
    2. to inflict a penalty for (an offense, fault, etc.)

    Nowhere does it say a punishment requires incarceration, fine, or any type of government/workplace action.


    A punishment is simply a negative response upon a person who committed an offense.

    Offense
    –noun
    1. a violation or breaking of a social or moral rule; transgression; sin.
    2. a transgression of the law; misdemeanor.
    3. a cause of transgression or wrong.
    4. something that offends or displeases.
    5. the act of offending or displeasing.
    6. the feeling of resentful displeasure caused: to give offense.

    I believe calling someone a racial slur, whether it be nigger, honkey, wetback, wop, chink, pollack, kike, towel-head, etc. Would be considered an offense.

    Therefore, it is punishable.

    Whether or not it is government or corporately imposed, does not matter. The media and public boycotting or backlashing upon an entertainer or anyone for that matter can literally ruin their life. There is no way that can not be called a punishment.

    Racism should be accepted the same way regardless of the race of the person committing the racist act.

    marstc09, it' painfully obvious you've lost this argument, just let it go...

    You've given all sorts of weak reasons why these punishments aren't really punishments, but offer no criteria yourself other than it should deter people (which apparently doesn't even apply to jail...)

    Look up the word in the dictionary...ie. "do your research".

    I am sorry it would be to me racist in that situation. it would be like me saying it to that in that context. You cannot say it any different. He is a professional period. And he needs to keep it that way. If he would have been caucasion and called someone black the other word you know it would have been racist.
    It just needs to be stopped. Call someone an ass or somehting. To me you are showing how you feel about other races.
    I am THE #1 Sidney Rice #18 Fan ever! Don't Be surprised when this kid IS a superstar! He is humble, smart, tough, talented and has alot of character! Takes alot of pride in his work, team, fans and life. Watch out for this kid! I think he is awesome! Everytime he touches the ball its MAGIC!
