    It's a double standard no matter how you cut it. A white man has to apologize for saying it yet a lot (but not all) of American blacks allow themselves the right to redefine it and have the right to say it.

    Personally, I can care less about the fact that he used the n-word. What's bothersome is that he used it and made other hate speech in such a hateful context.

    So you are fine to allow strangers to verbally abuse you for being a poof?
    Its just freedom of expression, no?

    Political correctness is bullshit.

    Abusing someone fir being in a minority or different from you is just fucking stupid.

    I see very clearly exactly who you are.

    Zunächst machten im Netz Gerüchte die Runde, dass der Star aus Los Angeles ums Leben gekommen sei. Dem widersprach Lebensgefährtin Jansen jedoch vehement. Auf Instagram teilte sie mit: „Ich möchte nur klarstellen, dass er noch am Leben ist. Seine Familie und ich bitten um positive Gedanken, Gebete und Liebe. Bitte, ich flehe euch alle an, ein bisschen Respekt zu zeigen und zu realisieren, wie extrem schwer das alles für uns ist.“

    Threatening physical violence and just making snide comments are two different things. If someone made a negative comment about my sexuality I would tell them exactly what I think of them right to their face and than just walk away from their dumb ass.
    Now if they threatened me with physical violence than they will be dealing with authorities because I will not tolerate that type of behavior. Nobody threatens me without facing the consequences.

    That sounds like a threat but than I wouldnt be surprised because you have this habit of saying threatening things from time to time.

    Let's establish some parameters here. First, RJ is a privately-owned site, to which we belong by choice. Accepting the membership terms when we join. We do NOT have broad US Constitutional free speech rights under the First Amendment on RJ. The site owners set the rules. If you don't like that, try another site. Where you'll likely find the same thing.

    Second, the US Supreme Court has established limits on "free" speech. Falsely yelling "FIRE!" in a theatre is often used as a classic example. You also can't maliciously slander someone, and be exempt on a claim of free speech.

    Plus certain forms of hate speech are also prohibited. Everyone does NOT have the right to say anything they want, and use any words they want, if it involves hate speech. It's not a matter of political correctness, but of statutes and case law.
