Jesse Jackson's use of the "n" word and other celeb tantrums

For those of you who care, post away.

Addendum: speaking of celebrities going off the deep end, alleged human and wacked out right wing talk show host Michael Savage went on the attack today against..... kids with autism. They're just "brats who haven't been told to cut the act out."
That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent? They don’t have a father around to tell them, ‘Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.’” Savage concluded, “[I]f I behaved like a fool, my father called me a fool. And he said to me, ‘Don’t behave like a fool.’ The worst thing he said — ‘Don’t behave like a fool. Don’t be anybody’s dummy. Don’t sound like an idiot. Don’t act like a girl. Don’t cry.’ That’s what I was raised with. That’s what you should raise your children with. Stop with the sensitivity training. You’re turning your son into a girl, and you’re turning your nation into a nation of losers and beaten men. That’s why we have the politicians we have.”
What a guy, huh?

Later, I have some other items to add.

Addendum: Here's a test to see if you may be autistic. I actually scored a 13. Just like a girl!

He's black so its ok.
So as not to pander to your taunt, I won’t use the word, but I can imagine that the word can be used with great love, and received with great love. In that context, why not use it?

We live in a society that is keyed to “trigger” to words, rather than the way they are spoken. I accept Whoppi Goldberg as an intelligent black woman, well versed in the ways of living as a black person. She speaks from a base of being a black person, and she understands the intricacies of black relationships. If she say’s that the word can be acceptable at times. I believe her.

It is far different to be taunted by one of your accepted peers, than to be taunted by someone outside your circle friends.

A point that I might make, is that we as white people don’t have the right to set standards of behavior for blacks based on racial stereotypes. Neither does anybody have the right to tell friends how to relate to each other.

Like the man said: “My friends may call me that, but you can call me Mister”.

Since we’re friends, I might be able to call you “Whitey”, but you would probably have cause to wonder if a black man, that you didn’t know, called you that.

Whoppi Goldberg say’s that “you have no idea what it is like to be black”. Conversely, she has no idea what it is like to be “Not Black”. So maybe she should cut us a little slack.
Its sets a bad example.

The bigger question should be about Fox news bugging Jackson while waiting for him to go on. Nobody should go on Fox without knowing its like being in the US embassyin Moscow.
I'm more offended by Jackson's appearance on Faux "News" than any particular word he may have used in said interview.
Hey Ernie,
In this case the "N" word was "nuts"--not the more emotionally loaded "N" word. But your nuanced justification for the use of the offensive "N" word in some contexts was spot on.
the autism epidemic is a crock. nice way for pharmaceuticals to rake in $zillions though.
You may be right, I thought the reference was to Jackson’s use of the n-word in the Whoppi vs.Elisebeth Hasselbeck confrontation.
I wish Michael Savage's dad had been there for the fatherless Shane Brinton, maybe he wouldn't have turned out to be such a limp noodle following whatever orders the DCC shove into his cranium.
americans have been feminizing men for well over a decade now. i see it is 35 year olds even. men can be men and women, women. there is nothing wrong with that. there is also nothing wrong with feminine men and masculine women but i believe the prior should be the starting point. Autism is a legitimate disease but as everything it is overused as an excuse for bad behavior and bad parenting. kind of like global warming alarmism.
Michael Savage is hilarious! You have to understand that his whole show is a satire. Look at the guys history. He lives in San Francisco. And he probably has a drinking problem also.

#3 ranked ranting looney Mikey Savage

All liberal causes he loves to Ravage

To old Joe McCarthy he will pay homage

Like Oscar the Grouch digging in the Garbage

Once transfixed by Ginsburg's butt cleavage

Stuck in the closet the source of his Rage?

or just a case of demogougic hucksterage

Wants to put all immigrants into a steel cage

Dad's knuckle sandwiches his only "cultural heratige"

Skipped Vietnam when he was service age

Files frivolous lawsuit over parody web page

#3 asshole in America pays a great Wage

Rock Star energy drink fuels his rampage

Claims we'd be better off in the Medeval Age

from the comfort of a modern sound stage

Eating all that macrobiotic roughage

Definitely the cause of a that verbal loose stool seepage


Assults my ears with contrived outrage

Project's fears about his own tiny package.

To the Castro district he should make a pilgramge

To make Mikey Savage synonymous with GOP suckage

The word is nigger folks.

Either it's okay for all to use it or none.

No amount of white guilt rationalization or black rage justification can change that.




Wingnut bigots, they sound all the same

If the last commenter truly feels such lack of shame

And that spewwingvicious epithets is just a word game.

Why then does he refuse to use his own name?


In terms of abject self pity he will always frame

always seeking divisions to inflame

That's the name of Savages con Game

Needs that scapegoat for his own failures to blame.

My name is Heraldo
Y'all know that Michael Savage was Allen Ginsberg's boyfriend, right?
Nothing anyone does in the cause of racial equality will protect him or her from being called a racist if he or she is white and disagrees in the slightest degree from one who believes himself or herself to be morally superior.

Being accused of racism in one's own home is disturbing.

How much worse when someone in a crowd points and shouts "racist!" You have been branded. That the person doing the branding is out of their mind means nothing.

It reminds me of that man Donovan who said, "Where do I go to get my reputation back?"

The accusation of racism against regular people who are definitely not racist is on the rise. Prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for the day it hits you. Don't think it can't happen to you because you are a compassionate, even liberal, person. The accusers doesn't care about the truth. They only want to enhance their reputation in their hyper-PC peer group. You are simply grist for their mill.
I couldn't believe that Jesse said Nigger, but I heard it with my own two ears, but like Fri Jul 18, 02:35:00 PM says "He's black so its ok."
