I'm wondering about this....Are racist comments only hurtful to people if they think the person saying them is better than them? For example...When a white person calls a black person a nigger, the shit hits the fan. But when a black person calls another black person a nigger, its no big deal. Its not just blacks...If a white person calls a mexican a wetback or a beaner, they get upset. If a white person calls an asian a chink or a gook, they get upset. But when someone from another race calls white people "Crackers" It really has no effect. If anything it makes me chuckle a bit because they think its a big deal. Why doesnt racial comments towards white people bother us? Is it because not only do we think we are better than other races, but the other races think this too? Or do we just have thicker skin than the rest of the world? Thoughts?
