    If this is the vid that I think it is, as much of a bitch she is, I actually agree with her on this point.

    Having a double standard for a word is stupid. Either accept that the word is offensive and no one says it, or don't get upset when a whiter-than-casper looking kid comes up to you and says "what's up my *****"

    Myself, I don't like hearing it from anyone.

    God damn, what a racist bitch. I can't believe she's allowed to stay on the radio. She kept trying to defend herself after she said the N word. Black people call each other that because it's to another black person. I don't see why she can't see that when white people say it, it's as an insult, but it's as a greeting for black people.

    It's people like her that start all kinds of racist arguments and fights.

    One rule for one colour and another rule for another colour is the very essence of racism. Racial equality means it should be acceptable for both or neither.

    I'll tell you what, after we address the racial disparities concerning, education, employment, incarceration, health-care and wealth; then we'll focus on the racial disparities concerning linguistics. [​IMG]

    Paradoxically, you aren't allowed to address anything until you take care of everything else.

    Language is one of the largest defining cultural factors, and behavior such as this plays an integral role in the ongoing bigotry experienced on all sides.

    It doesn't stop at skin color. The context and the reality of the situations black people are in day to day supercede any double standard argument.

    Similarly, if I called my girlfriend a bitch, we would laugh about it. If a stranger called her a bitch we would be fucking angry.

    To that extent, I've called close black friends -that word- before and we laughed about it. He pretends to get angry about there being no equivalent word for white people. I buy him a drink. Everyone's happy. Then there are also black people who will not tolerate that word no matter what the context is. There is just no appropriate way to generalize this topic.

    Probably for being born. I don't see this clip as making her look like a racist, but as a general rule, she's an irritating "C" Word... Sorry, not gonna type it out.

    You're right. Access Hollywood has to abide by Standards and Practices.

    As a non-American who has never heard of this radio presenter, I'm not going to judge her. I agree completely with what she says. If black people are allowed to call each other "nigger", then that should apply to everyone. Anyone who says otherwise is achieving the opposite of what they want, they are the ones being racist. Confining anything to one race - whether that be a seat on the bus, a place in a job, or in this case, saying a word - is discrimination. It's racist. If however "nigger" is too offensive, then no one should be allowed to say it.
