Paula Deen said the “N-word”…and I don’t give a shit.
Not only do I not give a shit, but I don’t give a shit for so many different reasons that I now must ramble on about them for 1,000+ words – in my oh-so angry and obscene manner.
Join me, won’t you?
First, and most obvious, the folks that watch her hillbilly ass do so for recipes and cooking tips, correct? How in the hell does a word she once used change her apparent talent in the goddamned kitchen?
I’m not going to push aside the World Blowjob Champion because we differ on religious views (he’s a Methodist), and nobody quits listening to comedians they enjoy for their use of ignorant and offensive words, or they’d all be out of business.
Of course, that’s provided that the comedian is of any race other than white.
White celebrities pay a huge PR price when making a racial slur, joke or otherwise, whereas Hispanic and black stars seem to have carte blanche when making fun of us (psst…I’m white), and in fact some make a career of it.
When a white person in the public eye, such as this backward-ass Paula Deen character, uses a slur, or is even found out to HAVE ONCE used a slur, it’s over, Rover.
If a black rapper makes a living trashing whitey, women, the cops and endless other horrible shit (which I often enjoy by the way), we hand them a role in an awful primetime police drama or start churning out shitty family movies with them as the lead.
Is that not a HUGE double standard?
I can’t tell you the number of black celebrities I’ve heard make off-color jokes about my race, as well as spew flat out hatred, and with nary a hint of backlash.
And I don’t give a shit about that either. If I find you entertaining or you can teach me how to cook a better fucking casserole, well so be it.
I’m so sick of this “N-word” bullshit that I could puke.
Is it a vile word with deep-rooted scars attached to its’ use? Abso-fucking-lutely.
But it’s still just a word, and the hypocrisy surrounding its’ usage has damned near deemed the very argument of its offensiveness obsolete, which is sad on an entirely different level.
In fact, the incessant use of it by the race for which it is a horrible reference to in the first place, has not just “taken away the power of it”, which is an incredibly stupid argument – and I don’t care if you drop the “er”, make it an “a”, “az” or add a fucking schwa to it – but it’s also taken away the “shock” of it.
This word has a terrible history and the usage of it in reference to each other just makes others feel less uncomfortable in using it themselves, in my less than humble opinion.
If I address my mother as “twat” in song, literature and everyday conversation, I don’t have much of a leg to stand on when you do the same, now do I? (Sorry Ma, just making a point)
To further the argument of its’ hypocritical nature, I can type “cracker”, “wetback” or even “faggot” without nearly as much fear as the dreaded “N-word”, when they are equally offensive to many people, and for good reason.
Hell, our redneck asses still CLEARLY discriminate against one of those groups and religion makes that all okay apparently…but I digress.
Personally, I was called a “cracker” once and I laughed my ass off. I think that I “took back the power”.
And speaking of “cracker”, it’s coming out in this Trayvon Martin case that he continually referred to George Zimmerman as a “cracker” when talking to that idiot broad on the telephone.
First, he’s half “spic”, not just “cracker” – if we’re slurring, let’s get it right.
Secondly, where is the uproar over this? It’s yet another role reversal example.
This is no reflection of my opinion on the case as a whole and the sad fact that a young man was killed, but just an obvious example of “the other side” of things.
Let the dead white (or half-white) boy be revealed to have referred to his black assailant with THE racial slur and you know it would change the whole dynamic of this thing, and that’s just wrong.
The point is that if we want this shit to stop, we have to stop it across the board. You want to scream about how horrible a word is and how much pain it brings back to you, don’t call your fucking friend that every time you address them or expect me to forgive your slights to other races.
Furthermore, how much of one’s past must we continue to judge them on? Again, if we’re going to do this, shouldn’t we be doing it for everybody?
As sad as it is, much of this nation was built on slavery, but we don’t now remove our cherished leader’s names from historic documents or quit using long lasting industry and products because many of their founders were once slave owners and bigots themselves – ones you can bet your sweet ass used some pretty derogatory terms at some point as well.
Shit, we have a current POTUS who spent years very close to a known racist and a former one who we all but applauded for letting a fat chic blow him in the oval office while using her pudgy snapper (that’s glorious word usage there folks) as a cigar cutter.
Your past is your past. We are judged by how we grow, or at least in my mind. Sure, murder, rape and ANY crime against a child are with you like herpes folks, as well they should be.
But fucking words we once used, be it as a product of our upbringing, environment, ignorance or just plain being a goddamned asshole, should not forever define who we are.
If I was accountable for everything I’ve said in my past, as well as most things I’ve done, everybody I’ve ever loved would hate me, and not just the basement contingent of the message boards.
And when you’re all looking in the mirror, you know that this goes for 97.3% of you fuckers as well.
Get off your goddamned high horse already. If you think it’s not the majority out there who’ve used a racial slur in a joke, or even anger, REGARDLESS of race, well let me also convince your naïve ass that Dane Cook is funny and Ke$ha has talent surpassing just being someone I think would be a fabulously nasty fuck.
I’ve used the most “taboo” word for every letter of the alphabet from “asshole” to “zoaf” (look it up), including the likes of “cunt”, the dreaded “N-word” and even “democrat”, but I can admit it.
I’m not proud of all of this shit, but I’m also not a goddamned liar, like a lot of you out there.
The lines are blurred and the rules are bullshit. You can make any joke, angry comment or slur you want, in a VERY PUBLIC forum, provided it’s about a white person. Apparently we deserve it.
We’re asked to move beyond the past, yet also continue to pay for that very past of OUR ancestors.
Well fuck all of that.
Paula Deen said the “N-word” and I still don’t give a shit.
And you know who else has? You, you, even your religious ass over there, and especially MANY OF YOU…and you fucking know it.
Those screaming and writing the loudest have likely been the biggest perpetrators.
We all have ignorance in our past, people. It’s what we evolve to that we should be judged upon…and how well we can cook.
