Racism is bad, look at the history of BASEBALL to see how bad it is and kick her to the curb. There are plenty of babes who are not racists!!

edit, to add that is the refuge of the weak!! There are PLENTY of ways for women to be rude and offensive to men w/o having to hide in racism. Eg your bat is small, you are a loser, etc... ;-)

I don't her, but I'll go on record and say she probably just hates the guy and his girlfriend. I've had girlfriends in the past and I've been a total jerk to a few of them and vice versa. She might really just have ended that relationship horribly and is still bitter. I think you ought to give her a chance because to label or think of anyone as racist is really jumping the gun. Who knows this might be an isolated incident and you could losing a great woman because of it.

I totally agree that acrimony towards the ex is not necessarly of concern. I think that going crazy is one thing but, in civilized society, racisim, even a *flash* of it in the heat of an argument, is lame and does not speak highly of an individual in that situation.

I don't think she's necessarily a racist if she's said it, but that's just my point of view.

Are you black, or just offended by the word in general?

And I'm already dating another two women. With another on the back-burner, ready to help in case of emergency.


Considering this is about ass for you, why the hell would you care what she says? I've never been in a relationship like that to hear a woman talk. ;-)

If you're out there looking for a real long-term relationship it may be a different story.

Do you know why it makes you so "wildly" uncomfortable with her possibly having extreme race issues? Likely it's because you are uncomfortable acknowledging your own race issues. There isn't a single human in the world that isn't guilty of some degree of racism. Wether you like it or not, there are white trash, n----- and a million other words which describe one thing, crappy people relative to their ethnicity. Listen to Chris Rock's take on it and you'll "know what's up". The comedy is called "N-----s versus Black people".

You know how sometimes you read something and it's really hard to be polite when responding to it?

This is one of those times.

Mr. Nuggets sir, I respectfully disagree.

This is like telling you that you must deep down harbour some hatred towards Jews because you are disturbed by her swastika tatoo and her little bushy mustache.

Maybe, just maybe, danny feels that her use of that word shows a little glimpse into her way of looking at people and he would rather not spend time with someone with that world-view.

Life is too short danny, drop her.

HA! I just finished reading about Godwin's Law to come here and read this. lol...

Seriously, though, that is a stupid comment. Once, my father showed up 3 hours late to hit tennis with me. The man is perpetually late for everything, but 3 hours is too much, so I called him out on it. His response was, "Son, sometimes we point out flaws in other people because we can't get over them ourselves."

8-o

Two things:
  1. I am very rarely late for anything. The embarrassment my father's lifestyle wrought upon me as a child has made me paranoid about being late for anything.
  2. My example is apparently better than Mookie's because it doesn't violate Godwin's "Law."
:-D
