Racial slur !!!!!

Quote:
"Who cares about the Redskins? Probably not first lady Michelle Obama, who turned her sights on insulting the Romani minority community Monday.

While describing her struggles as a working mother, the usually politically correct first lady used the racial slur, gypped.

“The first thing I tried to do, which was a mistake, was that I tried the part-time thing… I realized I was getting gypped on that front,” Obama told ABC’s Robin Roberts at the White House Summit on Working Families. “What happened was I got a part-time salary but worked full time.”

The term “gypped” is a racial slur deriving from the word “gypsy,” a slur for the Roma. The slur refers to the act of defrauding or robbing through practices such as swindling or cheating. The correct usage of the term is most certainly not synonymous to “slighted or “cut short.”


Defenders of Romani point out that the abbreviation, “gyp,” is nothing more than a callous slur used by the culturally insensitive. Similar slurs to “gypped” include “Jewed down” or calling someone an “Indian giver.”

All offensive. Definitely not something that the first lady of the United States of America should be saying in interviews.

But it’s not entirely Michelle’s fault. It seems as though she borrowed the offensive colloquialism from her husband, President Barack Obama. In 2009, at a town hall meeting in Allentown, Penn., Obama said that he was seeking to regulate health insurance companies to make sure that people don’t get “gypped.”

Ouch. When will the first couple clean up their language? It’s amazing not amazing at all that no one in their own party has called them out on it yet."

And remember Michelle wanted to ban the word......BOSSY.

I GOT NEWS FOR HER......She isn't the person who got gypped... America did when Obama got elected.

Yah, she'll probably issue an apology soonest, if she hasn't already.

She may have forgotten that she's on camera. One of the reasons that people constantly in the public eye have handlers/aides/attachés - whatever the word of art is these days - is to remind them that their words have weight beyond their apparent - or intended - affect.

HDS is becoming worse than ODS.

From Dictionary.com
Quote:
Gyp in the meanings “to swindle” or “a person who swindles” is sometimes perceived as insulting to or by Gypsies, since it stereotypes them as swindlers. However, gyp has apparently never been used as a deliberate ethnic slur, and many people are unaware that it is derived from Gypsy.

I had no idea that gypped derived from Gypsy.

But I hear the expression "Jewed down" all the time - which is definitely a derogatory slur against ... guess who?!

I think we should start a new thread dedicated to new derogatory slurs against azchurchmousedroppings.

OOOOOO oooooo OOOOO!



Is someone asking for racial slurs?
I am the man for the job!

Pretty please with a cherry on top?
Who do I send my resume to to get this impotent job?

Now, one must keep in mind that if y'all proceed in throwing poop at members that I am a 17th level monkey poop throwing black belt.
Able to take the poop thrown at me, add a little spit and mucous, and turn it into a big smelly GEM of a shit!
Don't whine like a little girl if someone lobs it back.

(must one report a post to get the mods attention to a post?)

black people are allowed to use any racist slur to anybody. they are exempt.

I took care of a jewish lady when I was doing home health and she made me drive all the way back to the story because they didn't give her a 25 cent coupon off something that she bought the wrong size of. apparently she made a scene everytime she went there. everyone that worked there knew her and scattered when they saw her coming. I quite after a month...

Yes, as a matter of fact, they are given a pass on their blatant and constant racism.

See, so called "racial prejudices" aren't made up out of nothing.
There has to be truth behind a stereotype for it to take root and resonate with people.
I had one Jewish friend who had lots of money and every time we went out to eat he would leave to bites on the plate and try to get the whole meal for free and he usually did.
I stopped going out to eat with him and made it clear why after one time he did it while I was in the restroom after I told him NOT to!
