Default Racism-- It's Slowly Killing Me

SPOILER WARNING: This is a rant. Remember what your mother told you when you were young? If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all. Or you'll dine in hell with King Leonidas. Period.

I just finished reading the discussion about how the term "gay" is bad. IMO, it's okay if you're saying it in a jokingly manner, but when you approach a homosexual and call them that in an insultive manner, that's bad.

Back to the topic at hand; Racism. It's killing me. I'm half-Mexican and people at my school are some of the most racist people you'll meet.

It's the most offensive term out there-- the "n-word". Please take notice how I had to abbreviate it like so. I will put money down on it that it's blocked on this site, but the "b-word" (insult to Mexicans-- think about it) isn't. Every day at school, people go out of their way to avoid using that word, and the sad part is, we have one half-black senior!!! I know her pretty well and she doesn't care when people say that word, as long it's not as an insult. The only time I heard that word be used in an insultive manner was when Obama was inaugurated into office and all the farmer kids were calling him that racist word and wishing he would get shot to hell.

And everyday, all I hear is-- you guessed it-- beaner. I hate, hate, hate that word. People throw that term around left and right at the hell I call "school". No one gives a crap if they're offending someone. Honestly, if you walk into the front office and get on the PA system and yell "beaner", you'll probably here a few hurrahs throughout the school. I knocked the crap out of a kid for calling me a spic. Obviously, I was suspended and the only people who take racism seriously are the principals. The racial-term thrower was going to get expelled for racism. I even thought that was a little much. Still, the word offended me and I naturally did what my heart told me.

I don't like using racist words, or even offensive words that are used to mock people's cultures, heritage, or sexual preferance. But when people use that stuff to make you feel inferior, then they deserve an aaasss-whippen'.

So! Next time you're going to racially insult someone or mock their sexual preferance, just do this -->

Thank you for listening to my complaint. And no one be like the farmer kids I mentioned above. They're bad influences. Just those ones, though. The racist ones who still live in the 1600's.

Default Re: Racism-- I don't mind it.

For some reason, when I read the word beaner in your post I started cracking up. It sounds funny. If someone yelled "beaner" and nothing else over my school's PA kids would hurrah because the word itself sounds funny. (And because someone had the clackers to walk into the office and yell beaner on the PA xD)

And ****** is censored. I am half-black, I don't mind being called ******, just don't over do it.

/agree

I would love to dine in hell with King Leonidas.



To be honest, I can't really understand all the emotion and drama behind these words. I can truthfully say that if someone said them to me, I wouldn't mind. It's almost common in our society. Spic, maybe I can understand someone getting peeved at being called a spic. But beaner? Come on.

I completely agree with you. The "b" word is totally and completely wrong and it makes me so mad when people use it! And sorry to say it, but there are even people that are racist towards Mexicans on PE2K. Look at my sig. This happens to me on AIM everyday! People think that because I am Mexican I am somehow not as good as them and they want to break all my bones. It is killing me.

Yes, and that brings another interesting point. Just like with the N-Word and blacks, it seems that Mencia uses the B-word far to often. If another person like Stephen Colbert used that word once, evrybody would literally b falling on his head, while because Mencia is Mexican, he can use it, really, and unlimited amount of times and nobody will call him out on it.

I am not being sarcastic, this is how I truly feel about the matter. If you think this is funny or think that this thread is just a joke then please just do not bother posting until you get serious.

Ah yes, I'm sure. You honestly believe that they wish to break all of your bones simply because you are mexican? Second, the excerpt you have in your post was done by Mike. I have a feeling that you cut out a large part of that conversation, and what he said was not to be taken seriously and you knew that.

I am serious, it is you that is not.

No, Mikey just randomly sends me messages every day, tormenting me for being a "beaner". That threat to break all my bones is one of the nice threats he has sent me... Some of the other threats are not even appropriate for the forum. If you do not believe me then that is your problem!!!

Dude, just get over it =|. I'm half black and white (though I look Mexican, alot) I've been called *****, beaner, and anything else you can think of. It just dosen't get to me at this point, the insult lasts for about 10 minutes, and no one remembers, and in all honesty, if you hit someone cause they called you something you didn't like, you need to grow up.
