NOTE: Just an example.
Someone else posted a thread and deleted it a while ago that got me started.

He asked, why can [other races] be racist but not white people?

I was talking to a black girl, a friend of mine when i accidentally let out a sarcastic rosa parks comment to someone in my seat who wouldn't get up. She decides to get righteous on me, saying, "My people be put down too long you stupit cracka!" and so on so forth.

What got me was when she said "We been on yo plantations while you sit on yo lazy white a$$ and beat us all day!"
My response: "...what?"
BLACK PEOPLE HAVE NOT BEEN SLAVES IN AMERICA SINCE 1864... almost 150 years ago.

most black people today arent 150 years old.
a few were around pre-martin luther king jr. and treated unfairly, but most of the more racist ones are much younger.

tl;dr- black girl talks about working on plantations nearly 150 years ago, yet is not almost 150 years old.

What are some other double standards that bother The Pit? they can be about anything. just try to keep arguments at minimum.

um... inb4 TS, Searchbar, and other memes i am vulnerable to.

If someone called a black guy in nigger and he punched them in the face (rightly so) at school, he'd probably get away with punching him because of what he was called, but if someone were to call me faggot and I punched (slapped, whatever) them, I'd get in shit for it.

That's because the powers that be probably agree with the slappee, sadly.

a double standard's just something someone else is politically correct or allowed to do that others arent.

I'd say nigger is more offensive than faggot because of the background of slavery etc. Its more than just an offensive word.

Somebody's never seen a gay kid in conservative middle America. Trust me, it's the same meaning toward a different population here (unless it's being used to mean "lame person").

good point, but no black person today has been a slave.

dont get me wrong, i disapprove of slavery, and the word nigger if it's used in a racist or offensive way, but if it's just a joke or casual... no big deal, imo.

I agree, not because it's more offensive, but because the way me and way use ****** is against unmanly and/or homophobic men, not gay people. Sometiems just a general insult against any straight guy.


For example, in my book, wife-beaters ,male members of the WBC, the KKK, religious extremists and rapists are all ******s.

Hey, just as soon as a kid runs crying for his daddy when he skins his knee, I'll admit you have a point regarding taking care of kids. But as long as they go for mummy, it's not our fault.
That doesn't mean we shouldn't help a bit more, but men at least can admit we're not perfect.

This bull**** 'positive discrimination' thing. I remember in class we were discussing this and everyone thought it was great that when choosing kids for a tv advert for instance, they tv people are meant to choose more children of a racial minority group to make it 'fairer' somehow.. This is bull****, they should choose the kids randomly and not give certain people advantages and others a disadvantage because they are of a different race.

There is no 'positive' in disciminating against people , it's ALWAYS a bad idea, no race should be favoured and no kid should be put to an advantage when getting a place on a TV ad on the basis of race. It's wrong!

Needless to say everyone came down on me like a ton of bricks for saying people should be treated the same regardless of race -.-' what a fantastic society we live in.

Go to a titty bar. They choose to show 'em there. And you'll probably feel rather dirty, and wonder how tits could ever be so uninteresting.

the law says exposed female nipples is Public Nudity, and thus can be charged.

this site's rules also state women aren't allowed to show nipples.

I think back in the 70s and such, black people (and other ethnic groups) were critisized against, but you aren't really allowed to say anything about another race, at least, if you are white, and i think its pretty dumb, if you are being purposefully offensive and actually have the intent that you think someone else is inferior because of their race, then yes, that is bad, but a joke is a joke.

Personally, i don't have any problems with people making racial slurs towards me (i am white by the way), because i don't find any of it particularly offensive, cracker, honky, white boy are all just made up things, apart from the last one, which is in fact true as i am a white male, but then again, if someone tried to beat me up for being white, then yes i would have more than a bit of a problem with it.
WHOMP

That's less widespread. At least where I live, homosexuality is generally not accepted at all, regardless of gender.

About the "*****s" and "sluts" thing. It's my contention that there's no such thing, at least if the word is intended to have a negative connotation. If someone wants to have ten partners, as long as they're safe, there's nothing inherently wrong with it IMO.

The thing that pisses me off is that people assume white people can't make racial jokes because we "owe" the other races for enslaving them, etc. I've never enslaved anyone, so why should I suffer for something that other members of my race did in the past. That, in fact, is the definition of racism right there.

If they were using the word Faggot specifically to insult and put down a person for their sexuality, then i think that its equally wrong.

Of course the word "Faggot" itself is more socially acceptable these days; but thats usually with a different connotation. Not meant specifically for anti-homosexuality.
