I realize that not everybody here is defending the bigot, half of them are trying to figure out why the others are defending him.josebach wrote:wrveres wrote:10 pages of you guys defending this bigot ... absolutley amazing ..
Nothing about this place shocks me anymore
As a kid growing up, my friends and I called each other fags all the time and not one of us had anything against gay people or meant it hatefully. As I got older, I came to realize that some words offend regardless as to whether or not you intend them to so I stopped saying them. Ozzie hasn't come to that realization yet. Ozzie doesn't act like a grown man, he acts like a child. That's his biggest problem. I think he completely deserves any punishment that comes to him. Not because he's a bigot, but because he needs to learn that there are certain rules you have to live by in American society and he's not above them.
Could Ozzie be a bigot? Absolutely, but there's no way at all you can tell just because he called a reporter he obviously hates a "fag".
Wrveres, even if you do judge Ozzie and come to the conclusion that he's a bigot, do you honestly think that everybody here sticking up for him thinks he's a bigot? Or that they themselves are bigots?If not, why would you make the comment; "nothing about this place shocks me anymore"?
have I simply misunderstood you time and time again?
oh and you mean like the time you were 100% convinced the only reason I thought the way I do is because I was African American ... classic
