At Last some sense

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Dog-faced-soldier, Feb 20, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not sure how old this is, it was just brought to my attention.

    Michael Richards better known as Kramer from tv's Seinfeld, does make a good point. This was his defence speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points.

    Proud To Be White

    Someone finally said it.
    How many are actually paying attention to this?

    There are African Americans, Mexican Americans,
    Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
    And then there are just Americans.

    You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
    You Call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,'
    'Whitey,' 'Caveman' ... and that's OK.

    But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head,
    Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink ...
    You call me a racist.

    You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you,
    so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

    You have the United Negro College Fund.
    You have Martin Luther King Day.
    You have Black History Month.
    You have Cesar Chavez Day.
    You have Yom Hashoah.
    You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
    You have the NAACP.
    You have BET.

    If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) we'd be racists.
    If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
    If we had White History Month , we'd be racists.
    If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance'
    OUR lives we'd be racists.

    We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber
    of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
    Wonder who pays for that?

    A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American
    pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

    If we had a college fund that only gave white students
    scholarships you know we'd be racists.
    There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges
    in the US. Yet if there were 'White colleges' THAT
    would be a racist college.

    In the Million Man March, you believed that you were
    marching for your race and rights. If we marched for
    our race and rights, you would call us racists.

    You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and
    you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce
    our white pride, you call us racists.

    You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a
    white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats
    up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a
    threat to society, you call him a racist.

    I am proud.
    But you call me a racist.

    Why is it that only whites can be racists?
  2. I think you've been had.

    Michael Richards was never in court over the issue of saying 'nigger' during his harangue at a comedy show. There's was nothing to charge him with except poor taste and judgment; neither is a crime yet in the US. He certainly didn't say all the above. It would've been all over the news here.
  3. Wanna buy a Bridge? Going cheap.

  4. Or some shares in Northern Rock?
  5. It could be a hoax I suppose. I am busier following international affairs than domestic US ones. Even if it is a complete hoax, I agree with it.
  6. I've just seen Maddie!
  7. Was the article in the Daily Mail?
  8. Im sure if said over here in these days of stunted free speech someone would condemn it and call it racist.
