Now we're calling people racist for having an opinion. I bet you're one of those people that thought anyone who didn't vote for Obama were automatically racist as well.
I've already stated that I won't deny that the white guy is possibly racist. But you have to understand these two guys were getting heated with each other, and out of that anger sometimes you will say things you don't necessarily mean just to get a "one up" on the other guy.
The white guy saying "You should be" was probably a kneejerk reaction out of anger, it was obviously a sarcastic response. I don't think that alone makes a guy racist, we do and say things out of anger that we might not mean, that anger can impair our judgment.
I think that is what Shea-Bird is trying to say, and I do see his point.
That doesn't make what the white guy said any less inappropriate, but that doesn't necessarily make him a racist either. Inappropriate, yes, racist, that's up in the air, we don't know if the guy is racist, only he knows that.
As far as him calling the black man "boy", uh.. what's that make every black person that refers to me as "white boy".. are they racist? Or is that another double standard I have to deal with?
You have to be f**king kidding!!!
First... his actions cannot be excuse for the simple fact that he is a political figure and therefore, he already knows that the position that he holds he needs to watch everything that he says because there is ALWAYS SOMEONE WATCHING YOU! Matter fact, that is the first thing that you learn in college about anything that you want to do in life is that in the business world, you watch what you say before you speak! So let's say one of my clients pisses me the f**k off over him calling a name, do you think that it is professional for me to cursed him out because it was in the heat of the moment??? NO YOU f**kING IDIOT BECAUSE IN THE REAL WORLD YOU'LL GET f**kING FIRED!!!!!! Get the hell out of here! His tone wasn't being sacarstic at all and more than anything, that situation could it been handle so easily!!!! He could it ignored his statement or could it simply ask him to prove his claim??? Trust me, once the tables are turn on his a.ss, his bark would it became irrelevant and that is how a reasonable and smart businessman would handle that situation.
Point being is... there is no excuse for his actions. More than anything, not only is he not sutiable for the job, you along with him are two retards that don't know s**t about how the real business world works! Plain and simple!
