Niggardly Morons

If you read the title to this post and thought “Oh my goodness, Incredipete has stooped to a new low by having a racist title,” you are officially what this post is about.

There’s currently a bit of a hubbub about a sign along a highway here in Kansas that refers to Obama as “niggardly” and against small business. Most of the people that have ranted about this sign claim it’s racist.

To those race-baiting morons – You are idiots.

Is it racist to use the word “niggardly?” Not one bit. Would it be racist if I said that all people who are ignorant of the definition of “niggardly” are obviously black? Yes, that would be racist. And I also wouldn’t say that. A vast majority of the people complaining that the sign is racist are poor white idiots.

This would be the equivalent of me seeing a bumper sticker that said “honk if you are Incredipete” – and then I got offended because “honk” sounds like “honky.”

People who get offended by everything that could (even in the most outrageous ways) be construed as racism need to drop dead.

Niggardly people are everywhere, and frankly, I disagree with the characterization of Obama as niggardly – on the contrary… he likes to shop till he drops. He spends money like it grows on trees. Heck, he prints money in the basement so he can go out and spend more!

Nope, Obama is not niggardly, but it isn’t racist to say so… just incorrect.

    Thank you Mr. Language Person!

    While we are on the topic: in this country, we say slavery was extra evil because it was racist. That is an ironical statement.

    The word “slave” is sometimes reported to be rooted in the word “Slav,” referring to an ethnic group in Eastern Europe. Apparently, at one point so many of these people were enslaved by Europeans that their name became the word “slave,” an ethnic slur by any interpretation.

    They happen to have roots in the region known as the Caucasus mountains. In case you didn’t know, that is the root of the word “Caucasian.” So, the next time someone tells you that as a white person you can’t know anything about slavery or oppression, just politely let them know that you don’t appreciate them using racial slurs in your presence.

    It's like society is the message board/moderators and this person is the user trying to circumvent the censors by saying "phuck or shiiit" LOL

    You need a “share” button for this website. There’s someone with whom I would love share this post. I guess I’ll keep copying and pasting the old fashioned way.
