    When you find out, let me know..
    Now this is just flat insulting and I think the guy should get a serious
    reprimand, if not dismissed. However the station sees it differently..
    What do you think..

    Another of that Kerry creature's disappointed supporters makes a great public fool of himself.

    They are paving the road to an even greater defeat in two years. No one believes children should be making the country's decisions.

    Shanghai, she's a Republican and he's a talk-show host on the losing side. That's how he got away with it.

    This clown "apologized" but then stated that she was a "black trophy" of the administration.

    His "apology", as one poster on another board so succinctly put it:

    "This situation is about like calling a woman a "whore" and then "apologizing" for saying that word while still insisting that she is "sleeping with half the men in the town"

    Oddly enough, "Sly" is in favor of concealed carry for WI.

    He was on Hannity and Colmes tonight, and Hannity came close to cold-cocking him.

    Please recognize, though, that "Sly's" show is on in Madison, a town that may very well be to the far left of Berkeley.

    Yeah, he apologized by basically saying "I'm sorry you're an Aunt Jemima"

    That's code for "token ******" :fire:

    Funny he would choose a nickname which I believe was popularized by a black man, Sylvester Stewart (Sly and the Family Stone).

    I've often heard blacks refer to other blacks as Uncle Tom's for doing the "right" thing instead of the "black" thing.

    Wow, that's a switch! NAALCP actually comes out in defense of a conservative!

    I read her resume when her name first surfaced in the early days of the 2000 campaign. My reaction was, "The smartest man in D.C. is a black woman."

    Trophy? Token? Duh? I'd bet Bush listens quite intently to her suggestions, rather than having her around as any sort of figurehead or sop to the PC crowd.

    Yeah, ol' Sly is just another loser who happens to have a radio show. But no taste. All hat and no cows.

    Art, I agree with where you are coming from. Rice is no token. I think she has been a major influence on Bush.

    I think Bush in general really depends on his advisors and subordinates when he is making decisions.

    If anyone is a figurehead, its the President himself, and not his advisors.

    I almost have to give him a pass on this one. A couple of weeks ago a conservative talkshow host used the term "wetbacks" to describe illegal immigrants who were showing up at the polls at election time. :uhoh:

    On the other hand, the conservative host was suspended for at least a week, and protesters showed up at his station for several days, but I'm pretty sure the liberal talkshow host won't face the same music. :fire:

    Let me get this straight

    Trent Lott says something about how if we had elected Strom we wouldn't have had issues we have now. NOTHING SAID ABOUT RACE... NAACP INFERS that he MEANT racial slurs, and calls for censure and removal from office.

    This "Richard Head" says freaking "aunt Jemimah" about a black woman and all we get is a little "token" statement from the NAACP. I tell ya folks, that is a sure sign to me that that organization is defunct.

    Where is the indignation and our beloved and oh-so-devisive RHEVAHRENDDDDD JEEEEESSSEE JACKSAHHHN. To save of us from the inequities of the evil anti black world. Where is his marching and boycotting? Nowhere, you now why? Because she is a conservative. She and Colin Powell are both "Uncle Tom's" to them. They won't say it, but the lack of action says it all. It's pretty sad when I, as a white man, am more outraged at this than the groups designed and created to destroy this type of thing. I would like to hear what Bill Cosby says on this. He seems to be the only one with legitimate thoughts on these types of issues. Perhaps if those in that state not afiliated with the NAACP shamed them into action by starting protests and marching perhaps the NAACP would be exposed for what they are. Useless.... :banghead: G.D. this stuff infuriates me!!!!!

    Remember, it's only racisim if a conservative says it. Doesn't count if it's a liberal berating a conservative, cause ya know, they deserve it! :rolleyes:

    I will stress this point once more while I try to find Blood pressure meds

    Anyone here that lives near that station should really try to organize a little of yours and some friends' time and do some "sign holding" outside the station.

    signs like "where are you NAACP??"
    And some other references to racial slurs being made at this radio station. If you make the news... (oh heaven forbid it is all "NON-NAACP" people doing the NAACP's job) Whew, They will be shamed into doing the duty they were created to do. It will also show their ridiculous uselessness. :fire:

    cracked butt:

    Me: "Tienes papeles?" ("Do you have papers?")

    Mexican guy: "No, soy moja'o." ("No, I'm a wetback.")

    Now, for me, this is a real-life event, and has happened more than once. No isolated incident.

    So I really have difficulty when folks get knotted up about the term. It's been an openly-used word in Texas since before I was born.

    Funny. Used to be, some of the worst bar-fight brawls I ever saw were between the LULAC guys and the moja'os. Latin American Citizens just really didn't like wetbacks.

    Does that mean we can start using the n-word when talking about blacks? They often refer to themsleves with it so it shouldn't be an issue, right?

    Art-
    I understand what you are saying.
    The radio host I'm talking about is very much hated by a large portion of the liberal city he lives in. It wouldn't take much of a controversy in anything he says for groups to latch onto and bite him in the ankles over.


    As with most protestors, I wonder if they had daytime jobs?

    Really, honest answer? No. It shouldn't be an issue. If the word is offensive, then it's offensive. If it's not offensive, then it's not offensive. If who gets to use is is determined solely on the basis of race, well, then, that's offensive in and of itself.

    The idea of a group (blacks, hispanics, gays, what-have-you) taking a term and making it their own, and forbidding its use by others is divisive, and serves no other purpose.

    If the term is offensive to a group, that group should deprecate its use, not encourage its own members to use it but cry "hatred" if anyone else does.

    I don't care and I don't think Dr. Rice does either. You can't spend all your time swatting flies or the flies gain control.

    Cannibal Crowley, whoa up a bit. "Wetback" is a fairly accurate description of a certain group of criminals. If they, themselves, aren't upset by my use of the word, why is somebody upset who's not an illegal alien?

    Until the whole illegal alien thing got so political, among blacks and whites Mexicans were either "He's a Mexican guy..." or "He's a wet..."

    "Mexican guy" referred to a U.S. citizen. It, or "wetback", had no more pejorative meaning than "He's a white guy..." or "He's a black guy..." Just a way of general description.

    So please don't distort my commentary with straw men, okay?

    Now, I grant the term is sometimes incorrect: That poor old Rio Grande can be shallow enough to walk on the rocks and stay dry while crossing...

    I really doubt Dr. Rice gives a rip what a loser talk show host from Minnesota thinks of her.
