Re: “Gibson's misogyny may not end his career, but his racism probably will

@Alexandrian: Niggardly is indeed a mild word which never entered American daily use. Tell me, when did your Mayflower ancestors notice that shakled blacks were stingy? It is more likely that the word comes from the French "Negre" . Don't forget that Colombus came with crass and crude European criminals as his crew. I would bet my last dollar that these overseers were not calling enslaved people "stingy" as they rained blows on them in the fields, or firebombed their homes after they became freedmen. We learn to language through hearing sounds--niggardly sounds a whole lot like the n-word with an ly at the end. Whoever used it in government was trying to make one of those PC points that disturb rude and inconsiderate people so much.

Re: “Gibson's misogyny may not end his career, but his racism probably will

Mel's true offence was trying to control Oksana. The only thing that surprised me is that Mel Gibson was so desperate to get a handle on the woman that he used such an old fear-the myth of gangs of n*****s out to rape and defile white womanhood. I assume that many white people use the n-word in the privacy of their homes. The letters of support for Mel confirm this.

People are not punishing Mel Gibson for using the n-word and ignoring his misogyny. People are just oblivious to mistreatment of women in this country. As much as we accuse Muslim men of treating women like dirt in their countries, women in America do not fare much better. Already people are asking Oksana what she did to cause Mel Gibson to get angry, and why did she stay after his first violation of her.

This is a country where women are killed every day by men they know intimately. People do not just up and kill--it usually starts with verbal and emotional as we hear in those tapes of Mel Gibson. He brought n*****s
into the mix to play on what seems to be a deep fear in many white people--of savage n*****s going around in gangs to rape virtuous white women. This is what people are reacting to--that Gibson, who seemed so liberal and cool still had this ancient fear of black men lurking in his mind.

@Factchecker: ...and a stitch in crewel is called a faggot. That does not mean gays do not feel insulted when you hurl that word at them. There is nothing rich in calling people by names that make them feel belittled. Words are not tricky, and we are not poorer for being aware of other people's feelings.
