    Rocker Ted Nugent Uses Slurs in Interview

    http://www.go2net.com/headlines/ap/general/D7QS0EDG0.html

    Two Denver disc jockeys stopped a live radio interview with rocker Ted
    Nugent after he used derogatory racial terms for Asians and blacks.
    Rick Lewis and Michael Floorwax, morning talk show hosts on KRFX-FM, said
    that during an interview Monday, Nugent said one of the members of a group
    called the Funk Brothers years ago complimented his guitar playing by using
    a racist term for blacks.

    "We've known Ted a long time and he's been on the show many times. So when
    he went down that road, we stopped him and gave him a chance to bail himself
    out, but he didn't take it," Floorwax said.

    Nugent also used derogatory racial terms for Asians on the air.

    The DJs said they got calls after the show from angry listeners, mostly from
    people saying they were glad Nugent was off the air. The station didn't
    receive any calls about it on Tuesday.

    Nugent is past president of the National Rifle Association and is known for
    his outspokenness.

    "Ted likes to shock people. He'll come on the show occasionally and drop a
    bomb like that and then step back to see the reaction it gets," Lewis said.
    "He loves that reputation of a shoot-from-the-hip kind of guy."

    The two DJs said Nugent is on the show about three times a year, but won't
    be back any time soon.

    A call to a Nugent spokeswoman was not immediately returned.

    I've admired Ted for years and I've never been inclined to think him a racist or anything of the sort.

    Nothing would surprise me from the Nuge but if he did use a slur I'm cinfident the liberals and the media will blow it as far out of proportion as possible.

    just my 2 cents worth

    I've also been a Nugent fan for years, really enjoyed reading "God, Guns & Rock&Roll"
    What bothers me about him though is he claims to be a "family" man and that family and kids are the most important things in the world. Can't disagree with that, but, you sure can't take your kids to a Nugent concert unless you want to teach them to swear like a sailor.

    You can say what you think when you reach 70 or when you buy your retirement.
    Sorry state of affairs when a country is ruled by liberal nursemaids.

    "Nugent is past president of the National Rifle Association and is known for his outspokenness."


    :confused: He was? News to me. Also, is "outspokenness" even a word? This seems suspect.

    Tell it like it is.
    Thanks for the post. Not a thing wrong with that. Glen Kaiser and Darrel Mansfield were of the same stripe back then and thats the way it was.
    Aa an aside...when competetive stress is encountered over a number of days I too have found that one can "s*** blood"...even that is not mis-speak.

    Yes.




    So Ted used the word "n*****" like most inner-city blacks do, as a term of comaraderie.

    "Jap" is still used by a lot of folks as a derisive term for their automotive products, etc., but it's hardly worse than "kraut" or "limey."

    Let's see, "Yank" (WW1 & 2 slang for american troops) is short for "Yankee" and it's alright. "Jap" is short for "Japanese" and it's not. Someone explain the logic behind that to me. Neither is derogatory, just shortened.:banghead:
    PC is stupid enough on it's own, but when it's stupid, illogical and inconsistent it really makes me :cuss:

    For "using a racist slur" it sounds an awful lot to me like he is praising "African Americans".


    Do they teach how to read for context in schools any more?


    Was Ted president of NRA at some point and I just didn't know it?

    Then again the only Presidnet I know the name of is Charleton Heston.

    I like to consider myself a reasonably PC person I think I've offended exactly one person face to face in the past 5 years or so with a very distantly racist... err... not comment or slur, but accent - and she certainly is the sensitive type.

    When a radio station states that an interview was stopped because of a racial slur or slurs without stating the context of that supposed slur, it borders on slander, at least in my mind, because if you say, 'he used a racial slur against blacks' the average mind doesn't think it could possibly be in anything but the most negative of circumstances.

    "Nugent is past president of the National Rifle Association..."

    If only... He'd get my vote to replace Heston.

    Remember a few years ago when someone used "niggardly" in a public conversation? This person was skewered, even when it was pointed out that niggardly meant cheap, and has no racial connotation, except what was attached to it by the "offended party"

    Remember, only white males that vote libertarian or republican are racists. Because when I'm called a redneck, white trash, etc its not racist.

    Exclusions based on sex or race are not really exclusions, unless perpetrated by white conservative males.

    Honky, Redneck, Whitey, Cracker........None of those terms offend me, but they are used just as frequently. I still don't get the nature of a person to be offended by such petty words and more reflects the intelligence of the user. I could be called crosseyed, freckle faced, redheaded stepchild and I feel "sniff sniff" hurt.......

    Nah, no I don't.

    Maybe the Nuge is starting his run for a Senate seat in W. Va? :D He`d have to change to a democrat and temper his language down to some of the stupidest comments ever made to get elected.:what: :neener: :evil:

    I agree with you guys here. I think it is stupid how hypersensitive these groups are. If they wanted to be fair they would crack down of the slurs make about people from small towns and the country being hicks, rednecks, inbred, etc. I go to a college and the school recruits a lot of blacks (african american if you prefer). Most of the guys the hall of my dormatory were black. Most were from big cities. They would call each other "******" and they'd even call me "******". I think for the most part it is used as part of the way the speak and display their image. I think it is a cultural thing, like talking with a "southern draw" and wearing wranglers. I was friends with most of those guys, as they are for the most part very decent and cool. I consider most of them friends.
    I think a lot of the "oppression" is self-concieved and often I feel that there is more reverse racism that goes on than the other way around. Sometimes at school, myself and my room- mate(both being crackers, whiteys, rednecks or whatever) would go out of our way to be kind, generous and giving, to not allow the race issue to come up. We were being oppressed for the fear of oppressing someone else. We often extended ourselves much more than what we would have for a fellow "whitey, cracker, Wigger", and the result was that we were actually oppressing our own "kind". This is infact the case if skin color is even an issue. For me it is not. There are a lot of great, neat and smart people out there of all skin colors. I would embrace dating or marrying a woman of a different skin color. I think it is all about words and deeds and moral fortitude, not how much skin pigment God gave you.
    So should Ted watch what he says. Yes, he should deal with the race issue by explaining himself and trying to get along. Sometimes offending someone is necessary to telling your opinion and the truth. But sometimes it's better just not to say anything. I am not saying he is wrong. If he was infact called a "guitar playing motown ******" or whatever the quote was, I don't think he did anything wrong by saying what he did. He was not being racist by what he said. It's kind like there is nothing wrong with saying "Bomb" in a sentence refering to a non terroristic activity on an airplane, but you'd sure be in deep trouble if the wrong person heard you.
