    Better than the extremely low expectations I took into reading it, but he's still all over the place when it comes to making a point.

    Uppity... That's a word I don't hear too often, and I think it's only used in certain circles.

    He does have a good base point, though, that any tolerance of these words means complete tolerance.

    I really had to fight the urge to stop reading.

    I'll echo Bubbler. Better than I thought it was going to be, but I got a headache while being brought to the point.

    Same penalties for the "n-word" as the "f-word"?

    Jemele Hill, among others, wrote that column six weeks ago.

    Well Barkley talked about this on the Bill Simmons podcast a week ago, but I think ESPN does not reach his house.

    And I don't really care if Barkley said it first on Simmons or Wise.

    I thought this was about Whitlock finally cancelling his Blockbuster membership. He's strictly a RedBox man.

    Aren't most of those stationed outside of McDonald's?

    Just saying.

    The majority of times I've heard people use the "n-word", it has been persons of color. What does that tell you? That it's fine?

    Heck, I'm white and I've been on the receiving end of plenty of racial slurs. Doesn't bother me much anymore, if it ever did.

    It seems like the gay crowd is talking out of both sides of its mouth. They want to publicly come out and parade their abominations in public. Then they get sensitive about being called names about it. Well, STFU and no one will have anything to call names about.
