Calling a black person 'nigger' is no different than calling a white person 'albino'?

Yes

Side Score: 15
VS.

No

Side Score: 28

Wait... are you saying that being black is a genetic disorder and niggerism is the correct technical term? So is a small black child a nigglet?

Somehow, that just doesn't sound right.

The n word was used by slave owners before the cilvil war to identify the slaves. Albino is a medical term and has never been used to identify slaves. Black people can be albino, too. Don't say they can't, my father is a doctor. But i have been called a snow bunny by a teacher and i find that very offensive.

No, because a nigger is only a highly offensive term to black people while albino is a disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes due to absence or defect of an enzyme involved in the production of melanin, and cases have been found in African descent specifically in East Africa.

Let us remember the civil war, fought to free all of the albino slaves.

Let us remember all of the innocent albinos, hung by the niggers just for looking at a nigger woman.

Let us remember all of the crosses burnt on the lawns of the albino people.

Let us remember all of the houses and churches and businesses bombed and burnt to the ground to fight against the albino rights movement.

Let us remember the tremendous effort to desegregate the nigger schools to allow the albinos to attend.

Let us remember the tremendous outpouring of sympathy for the albinos who suffered from the system of apartheid in nigger run South Africa.

Let us never, ever forget the plight of the albino and the fight to set them free!

Next, on the History Channel: The story of the albino's fight to free their homeland from the occupation and centuries long rule by the Indian Empire.

Many of those things were done by the Ku Klux Klan - one small sect of the white population.

I realize that the word has developed negative connotations, but you are allowing racism with such inequalities - and over something as minor as a word.

The word hussie, a few centuries ago, meant housewife. The definition has changed over the years.

If we keep thinking about the term 'nigger' like we do now, how will they ever be equal?

I partly agree. I was surprised when I moved from Europe to North America how black ppl freak out every time someone says the word, as if it was actually them who suffered like dogs. On the other hand by using the word one suggests that its addressee should perhaps be considered a thing rather than human being. That is very much offensive even to me as a white (that s why i developed allergy towards those who employ the words). Still, i d hate to live in a country where offensive words wd be illegal. Canadians are dangerously close to that state of affairs.

I disagree with all cencensorship, whether social censorship or legal.

So if Sith-whatever wants to call someone a nigger, that's none of my concern, or the laws. By the same token though, I would understand perfectly if upon Sith-whatever calling someone a nigger, a black person (what I call black people when referring to the color of a person's skin in a generic sense) then decides to say, kick Sith's ass because the term hurts them on a personal level,

That too should be allowed by law, so long as death does not ensue and Sith isn't a chick.

I'm likely in the minority there.

Similarly, if the word Albino was so insulting to me, and it was meant as such, I should be allowed by law to retaliate in the way I see fit that does not cause permanent damage to life or property, and assuming the person isn't a chick.

However, to pretend they are the same is ignoring a whole lot of history. Which I am generally against.

I think the person being called whatever, should have more of a say in whether that thing they are being called is appropriate, then the one who would like to call them that thing.

So black people don't want to be called nigger by white people? So it brings back bad ethnic memories?

Rightly so I say.

Though I'm against censorship, I really don't understand many right-wingers obsession with this word. They act like it is some great injustice that people don't want to be called nigger.

They don't like it. Fucking getting over it douche bag. What do you care if someone finds something offensive?

If you want to say it, it's not like there's a law against it. But don't expect others to not think you're being a douche if you're going around calling people a nigger.

Attacking somebody because of a racial slur? In Canada, you can't even fight somebody who is broken into your house and stealing all your stuff.

Like I said, I'm in the minority there. But the point is, it is not fair to not expect reprisal when one says something they know to be offensive. Again, so many angry white people (who are angry for no reason consequently, but that is not the point) want so so so so bad for it to be okay to say nigger in public polite society.

All I'm saying is too bad, it's not up to them.

I'd also add, again, that they are kind of being douche bags.

There are some albino blacks so I don't get the logic here. I find being called cracker or wonder bread amusing seeing as there is no historical context to it. But the intent is all the same, to cause mental harm through racism. I'm pretty sure Albino people are being discriminated against somewhere in there as well. I find it all pretty menial to be honest. Life is too short to waste it on hating another human being just because of the color of their skin. Learn from the past, and make sure history does not repeat itself is all we can do in the end. There is no use in dwelling on things that cannot be changed.

Does nobody not know that the word `albino`is also a racial slur! This debate has nothing to do with the medical condition.

As previously stated, these are not even comparable things. A rare genetic disorder, and a difference in the pigments of your skin that occurred naturally from the habitat people lived in over many generations, just no.

Ya. Common buddy, don't make a debate like this and expect everyone to agree With you. Albino is mainly known as a condition where as nigger isn't. Its mainly known as an offensive term.

There is not an atom of equivalence here. There would be no difference only if there was an era in the human history during which black people ruined the lives of hundreds of thousands of albinos and treated them like a scum.
