That's racism's catch. Your supposed to tiptoe around everyone's ass on the issue of race. On the other hand if you accept people want you to tiptoe and you reject that notion ... now your supposed to keep fuckin score of how many times you might have tiptoed.
Either your apologizing or keeping score and that's waaaaaaaaaaaay to much work.

NEW ORLEANS -- There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood.
On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper.
"It disrespects the nation -- and President Barack Obama represents our nation," said Skip Alexander, as he looked at one of the signs. "He represents everybody, not some people."
Dozens of protesters came by the house in the 1500 block of Calhoun throughout the day, demanding the sign come down.
"He wouldn't do that to [President] Bush, I'm sure. It's just insulting. It's insulting," said C.C. Campbell-Rock. "He's going to have to take them down."
"This is nothing put pure racism," said Raymond Rock. "This is a disgrace."
The home is owned by Timothy Reily, who declined to be interviewed about the signs. Former Mayor Ray Nagin showed up at the house and went inside to speak with Reily. He emerged later and would not comment on what they discussed.

Is this racist?
About 20 years ago a friend related this story to me.
He was hired by a rich guy as a landscaper, later when the rich guy needed a maid he referred his niece and she was hired.
One day when he was working in the yard and his niece was cleaning the house she leans out the window and yells down to him "Master loves the house N's better than the yard N's." They both had a good laugh. But was that racist? Both people were white no one took offense and no one besides themselves heard as they were the only ones there. In my opinion they were only making fun of themselves but I am a little curious what the forum members think.
