    we can say things about ourselves that would be purely offensive for anyone else to say about us. I don't know that that is especially  true of racial and ethnic stereotypes, but it is emphatically true.

    Here one twist is that we have no immediate way of knowing whether someone's user name is self-referential. It's plausible that some forms of humor should be deemed off-limits on DKos because they are too easily misunderstood. I suppose that would be the stereotypically "PC" position -- but I doubt that matters much.

    •  I think that would seem self-evident, common sense (0+ / 0-)

      would dictate that to be true, as in any public situation where a modicum of decorum is expected as a requirement to healthy debate and discourse.

      Which is, I think, the reason for this conversation.

      Chingchongchinaman is a white kid in Jersey.

      My point is that it's an okay name according to Markos.

      I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves. -John Wayne (-9.00,-8.86)
