"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.

Interestingly, this is along the lines of a conversation I had over a year ago at work. One of the people I work with is the company's director of minority sourcing. We have to spen da certain percentage with minority suppliers. Accepted minorities are african-american, latino, asian, american indian, and pacific-indian. Middle-eastern is not an accepted minority catagory.

So that seems to indicate that that group is not viewed the same as the others, which doesn't make much sense to me.
