I Often Feel "Small" (3+ / 0-)
I was reading about MLK and found many white folks (that would be me) from my area got on a bus or two and went south. To protest. Made me feel good.
My grandparents used to say redacted this or redacted that. I was raised in a household where that wasn't allowed. I can assure you where I lived at the time it would have been easier for my parents to raise me in a different way. They didn't.
I feel small cause I have done so little to change things.

I Live Not That Far From There (12+ / 0-)
People hate when I say this but a cross burning on a front lawn isn't as rare as you might think. I can take you to a few places in my town where you can call somebody a redacted and nobody will even question it. I did question it a time or two and that didn't go over so well ....

She Did Frame It Didn't She (6+ / 0-)
now I will just say I kind of feel for her. You know I tell my parents it ain't kind of hip to call an African American a nergo. Heck years ago I hate to admit calling somebody a redacted was acceptable in my household.
I don't thing people get that term. How it was used.

I Recall Mike (13+ / 0-)
He was a golf buddy. My mom was the mom that always was at my sporting events. She'd drive Mike with me. I recall this one event. This was actually said:
We don't let redacted play here.
Mike was not white.
I recall my mother saying get in the car. We are leaving. Get in the fucking car.

I Recall Moving From The North (56+ / 0-)
into the deep south for school in the early 90s. LSU. Baton Rouge. I don't mean to paint all those that live there this way, but the first day there this was said to me, "we don't redacted let do things like you Yankees do."
I had been there for a day. One class and this was told to me.

I Was Born In Baton Rouge In 1969 (10+ / 0-)
My father finishing his PhD there. In the early 90s I went back myself to college to work on my PhD. Now I was raised in the midwest most of that time. Military brat. Honestly I can't recall any racism. I am sure it might have been there, but not in your face.
I recall the first day of class, not long after the riots in Los Angeles at LSU. A dude in the class asked me if I wanted, cause I guess it was clear I was a Yankee (oh calling me that is a whole other related story), to get a tour of town.
At one point we started to talk about the riots. He reached down under this seat, while driving, and pulled out a gun. Then said:
That would never happened here. I'd do stop those redacted.
Now I use that word here cause I think people need to hear it. I was totally confused.
I don't think the deep south is less racist then where I live in the midwest, but they are at least open about it.

That Is Why I Don't Spend Much Time (8+ / 0-)
on Facebook. I have a family member there, an openly gay women. Been with her partner for 32 years. She calls Obama a redacted. I can't compute. I hate to head here and see what is said about this.

I Could Talk For Hours And Hours (25+ / 0-)
about how my parents have changed. It didn't happen over night. It took years and even decades. But change did happen. 20 or so years ago my dad would call a person of colar a redacted or redacted Much more recent somebody a "fag."
Myself and my brother told my dad this wasn't acceptable. Not close to "cool." Then maybe we introduced them to a family member that was kind of openly gay, lif they just paid attention.
That gay couple are my parents best friends right now.
My parents, oh and I have stories, are about as pro gay rights as anybody I know. It just took some effort on my end to help them, push them, and all is good now in my household.

My Parents Are Life Long Republicans (41+ / 0-)
and somehow under your watch they voted for their first time in their entire lives for a redacted Democract. You might ponder that for a little and give them a call and ask why.
See maybe like 30 years ago my dad might have called a person of collar a Or a person a fag. But funny thing, they would find what they used to do offensive now.
They have come full circle.

I Think I Understand. I Am A White Dude (2+ / 0-)
there were times in my life where I was called a "redacted lover." I am somewhat sorry to use that word and not *^ it out. But it was what was said to me.
I am 43. I am not 83.
I often joke that if you are a white man and you don't hear racist stuff then you don't walk around much in this country. It is all around me even to this day.
Right in front of your face.
I was at a bar tonight and we were talking about the NBA season starting and I kid you not somebody said to me:
I don't have a need to see monkeys playing a game.
I said something like, "what the fuck did you just say" and the entire bar just looked at me

We were at a course at the university if Illinois. I was asked, "you will let that redacted play with you?"
My mom came on the course and grabbed my clubs. We got in the car and left.

not even close. But he just a redacted. If he wasn't born outside of the US he is just a redacted. I hate to use those words but it is just a fact. Try this or that and you can't change that.

That ship is long sailed for Denny's. (71+ / 0-)
Denny's, a national restaurant chain, agreed today to pay more than $54 million to settle lawsuits filed by thousands of black customers who had been refused service or had been forced to wait longer or pay more than white customers.
The new head of the civil rights division of the Justice Department, Deval L. Patrick, said it was the largest and broadest settlement under the Federal public-accommodation laws. Those laws were adopted more than 30 years ago to end segregation in restaurants and other places that serve the public.
The agreement, worked out among Government lawyers and lawyers representing Denny's and its customers, ended Federal class-action lawsuits in Baltimore and in San Jose, Calif., and a complaint in Virginia. Those actions were filed on behalf of thousands of black customers who had asserted that Denny's violated their civil rights by treating them rudely and by routinely giving preferential treatment to whites.
In one instance, a black Federal judge from Houston and his wife who had been traveling for 18 hours said they were forced to wait at a Denny's in Yreka, Calif., for almost an hour as white teen-agers taunted them and referred to them as redacted
In another case, six black Secret Service agents assigned to President Clinton's detail were refused a table at a Denny's in Annapolis. Md., while their white Secret Service colleagues were seated and served....

The kind of war-whooping, tomahawk-chopping... (80+ / 0-)So whats the deal ?
...behavior displayed by Brown's campaign staff emerge, sad to say, as a result of the attitudes that remain widespread in America when it comes to Indians. It continues to be okay, for example, to have a national football team named the "Redskins," as offensive to many Indians as would be a team called the Washington "redacted" or the Cleveland "Spics" to blacks and Latinos.
Stereotypes, including new ones about "casino revenge," plague us across the tribes. National discourse is filled with little smears like "off the reservation" and the use in the military of "Indian country" to describe hostile territory in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. Recently, a public official labeled Indians at a hearing "hostile."
As navajo and I have pointed out in our First Nation News & Views series, the insults and the subtle and not-so-subtle attacks on Indians are not a thing of the past. They happen every day. That doesn't give the Brown campaign any excuse.
Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

Why is it that redacted is recommendable over and over and over ?

My Brother Is Nine Years Younger Then Me (0+ / 15-)
in the mid 90s he liked hip hop music. My parents thought that was redacted music. I hate to use that word, but alas it was what was used. I think folks need to hear/read it. We told my parents that wasn't acceptable. They changed.
But if you lived by me, I could take you to a bar and you could yell redacted and nobody would care. It is a sad, sad thing. But truth!
