"nigger" isn't okay. "spic" is pretty taboo.
"wetback", "jigaboo", "coon", hell,... even "colored" is out.

But it's okey dokey to call anyone of middle eastern decent a "raghead", "towelhead" "camel jockey", "sand nigger" (that's a particularly lovely one)... or what have you.

How very fucking evolved.
It makes me angry every time I see it. But even more so when I see people who I gave the benefit of the doubt to parading their ignorance like a fucking soccer hooligan.

Well, a jokey answer would be that I prefer cracker (well that's not really jokey. "cracker" always amuses me more than 'honkey')

The serious answer would be that it's really really not the same. Not that racial slurs are okay for *anyone*, but heh... what white guy was ever left feeling degraded, subjugated and abused because someone called him 'honkey'?

And for the second part... yeah... I know.
in so many little ways every single day... I know.

We live in such mindless times, people want to just consume, root for the winning team, always be right...it's scary how lazy intellectually we've become. Everyone prefers their bliss...

No wonder everyone is some form of an escapist.
