following is a list of words and terms that could land you in
the P.C. hotseat. In order to avoid any conflicts regarding
these words, we at PIG have taken the time to present the definitions
and context of these words. Unless your intent was to use these
words as weapons, and we know you wouldn't, we highly recommend
you download a copy, and keep in your wallet. PIG disavows any
knowledge of any alternative meanings to these words or phrases.
If, in fact they do exist, that would be news to us. As the
Boy Scouts say: Be Prepared!
WORD OF THE MOMENT
PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE: THE 'N' WORD
term/word nigger has a long and ugly history in this country,
and has virtually vanished from the vocabularies of all but
two groups of people, more or less.
first group would be out-and-out bigots (of any color) whose
use of the word betrays a racist bent. No crime is committed,
since the First Amendment free speech provision also includes
racist morons, properly-hyphenated and unhyphenated alike. PIG
believes that bigots - anyone who classifies individuals based
on immutable characteristics - are mired in group-think. Any
regular PIG reader who hasn't been body-slammed by our opinion
of group-think hasn't been paying attention.
second group that uses the term is the very group it is meant
to insult...blacks themselves. That's right. black entertainers,
rappers, sports figures all seem enjoy a free pass when THEY
use the term. In fact some use that term all the way to the
bank in the case of rap stars and comedians.
if you dare, Whitey using the same words then brace yourself
for the deafening din emanating from self-appointed racial justice
purveyors. Time stands still. Front page news. Heads roll, jobs
lost, lawsuits filed, boycotts on the way. All the right people
say all the right things, in denouncing the use of that word.
Everyone acts as if it's the end of the world. But the truth
is, you rarely - if ever - hear whites use the term, in public
standards? You bet, but double standards are the bedrock on
which political-correctness is constructed. Some of us, here
in the PIG empire, suspect that this increased use of nigger
by so many blacks is an attempt to lure unsuspecting whites
to their doom. The idea is to make dumber than a pet rock Whitey
think the so-called "n-word" is now, okey-dokey. The
minute he swallows that bait, wham, he's a racist asshole. Paranoid?
Perhaps, but don't blame PIG when it happens to you.
it weren't for the gansta elements, the word nigger would almost
be non-exsistant. Who, exactly, is responsible for the extended
life of the word nigger? It can't be John Q. Whitey. Memo to
all you civil-rights squawkers: If this one word is all that
keeps "your people" down, you ought to be policing your side
of the street before attempting to clean up everyone else's.
bottom line, little Piggies, is this: if someone ever accuses
you of being racist for nuking them with an "N-Bomb", just say
you heard black comedian Chris Rock utter these profound words:
"Nobody hates niggers more than black people".
