I AM White, Obama IS Black, and the Kid With Autism IS a Retard.
Anybody Got a Problem With That?

Grr, my history teacher got mad at me today.  We had a 'private talk' about how it
was politcally incorrect to say that Obama is black.  He's 'African American.'  If we
can describe someone's hair by colour, why not their skin?  I am white.  Obama is
black.  End of story.  It makes no difference what colour your skin is, but it is
that colour.  I actually think it is more racist not to call Africans black
and Caucasians white.  It's as though they're afraid of the colour of people's skin. 
But whatever.  He said he wasn't going to get into a debate with me, and my dad says
that's probably because he knew I'd win.  And then we started talking about mental
retards and how that's also incorrect.  How, praytell, is that incorrect?!?!  It's
the truth!  The word retard derives from the French "en retarde," meaning late. 
Retards are late in development!!!!  Argh, politcal correctness makes me so mad!

Please, I'd like any and all opinions on all portions of this diary entry, with
backup information.  Pretty please?

Thanks soooooo much, when I saw this comment I was nervous that
somebody would be bashing me.  Elohel.  Thank you! 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   5 November 2008   733819  
Well, I'd rather call Obama 'African American' instead of black
That's just my opinion. About mental retards, I take your side on that
one. It's not right, though, when someone calls another who isn't a
retard, well, a retard.
tiggerlemon101 says:   5 November 2008   439322  
Yeah, I agree on the retard thing.  That is incorrect.

Well, if you want to be politically correct, you'd call them brown.
And myself pink/yellow. xD Sorry, I had to say that :3

Black and white makes sense, but the thing about autism is rude.
Autistic is not retarded. It's... oh, i don't know. But, it's just not
nice to call Sammy a retard!!! Even though what you said did make

@Amy: You are actually quite correct!  I shall remember that one,
@skybluechic: I know, huh?
@winterpenguin26: That's what an ACTUAL retard is.  The definition of
retard is this: –verb (used with object) 1. to make slow; delay the
development or progress of (an action, process, etc.); hinder or
–verb (used without object) 2. to be delayed. 
–noun 3. a slowing down, diminution, or hindrance, as in a machine.

4. Slang: Disparaging. a. a mentally retarded person. 
b. a person who is stupid, obtuse, or ineffective in some way: a
hopeless social retard.  
5. Automotive, Machinery. an adjustment made in the setting of the
distributor of an internal-combustion engine so that the spark for
ignition in each cylinder is generated later in the cycle.

AH, i've missed you, Nicole! 
@Nicole:  Oh yeah, he PWNS alright.  More like is an uptight, stuck in
the twent-eth century, probably overly-religious (but that's just a
guess) dip****!
However, he is an uptight, stuck-in-the-twentieth-century,

I wouldn't call someone with a disability 'retarded'. The medical
term may be mentally retarded but it sounds pretty disrespectful. On
your dictionary definition it does say that retard is 'disparaging'.
tiggerlemon101 says:   6 November 2008   865541  
See, they've brain washed you to believe it is rude.

But you know how if you're joking around with someone, you'll call
them a retard?  THAT is rude.  If we didn't do that, we wouldn't see
retard as a rude word.
jackjack789 says:   7 November 2008   769266  
youre right I agree with you totally on this one. honestly I dont
think that it would be rude if thats what you are. If your calling
someone a retard who actually has problems, how is that offensive if
its true?
tiggerlemon101 says:   7 November 2008   521131  
I know, huh?  Thanks for the support, as I'm evidently not getting
any from the real people in my life...

I say African American unless I am told otherwise by the African
American because they've put up with so much junk to get full rights
as an American citizen. I like to think that each time I say it it's a
celebration to their success. Although sometimes the person I'm
talking to says "I'm black and you know it."
In which case I switch terms. (This of course only applies if
somebodies racatility comes up in conversation.)

but it's not incorrect, politectly or otherwise... Although as
for autisism the technical term is bosee (sp). Again, not incrrect,
it's about at the level of calling  a lesbian gay.
tiggerlemon101 says:   7 November 2008   477153  
I do actually try to say African American, because that's tecnically
what there culture is.  I'll say that if it's what I'm saying.  But if
I'm saying that Obama is the first black president, that's what I
‹ruthie .› says:   7 November 2008   957194  
I was just reading your dictionary definition,
Slang: Disparaging. a. a mentally retarded person. 
It does say that it is 'slang' and 'disparaging'. 
Another Dictionary:
Offensive Slang, Used as a disparaging term for a mentally retarded
‹Secret Desire#› says:   7 November 2008   399999  
i Completely agreee :] i am white , obama is black. Caucasians get called white.. thats about as rasist as calling an 'african american' person black. people need to get over themseeeelves : ]
‹Kiwily<3› says:   8 November 2008   447683  
damnit. he's not even black.
he just looks black.
he's actually a mixed breed o_O

I agree.  I try to say African American, but black is way easier

Mixed breed... elohel!
And again, I'd rather say African American, but the fact is that  HE

My friend is a republican (I can't beleive it either) and he said,
and I qoute "having a black president would break the chain. It would
piss off that patriots of this country" I told him  "scr*w the
patriots, the patriots suck" and he said "no not the new
england patriots *disgusted demeaning tone* I mean people who love
our country." I said "yes I know *imiation of his tone*, scr*w
the the patriots, this country sucks!Which is why we need

"ugh! A black President? *return of mean tone*" he says. Oh my
god. how much more racist do you get???
Kirti says:   11 November 2008   111825  
That was last week. Today my friend Claire accidently hit me in the
head with a basketball (it bounced of the rim) and this racist friend
starts laughing, and I told him that was mean and so i kicked him. It
wasn't hard and doing stuff like that is really normal with my
friends. So he starts going on about how he had gotten hit with balls
but he dsidn't kick anyone and how I lacked any self control or
respect and I cut him off a said he wouldn't respect anyone who wasn't
republican and then- get this, because this is another qoute-

"Well your a racist!! You only dislike Bush because he's white!"

um... WHAT?! I'm white. Bush is white. how is that raicst?! I hate
Bush because he sucks. he sucks majorly. Historians have gone over
ever President and what situations each had to deal with, and how they
handeled it and based off that they said that a tie for the worst
American President ever was Bush and some guy named Hover. Plus he
started a pointless war in Iraq because Afganistan attacked us (?!)
and he didn't get congress approval before starting either war, and he
totally ignored global warming, and he sucks.

am I in the worng here?

I don't like racist people...I'm a lil dark cause I'm Cree....

@Kirti:  Strange how whites are no longer the racist ones, it's the
black, Asians and Indians?  They're getting annoying now, we haven't
done anything in forever!
And yes, you're totally right.
@ILuvYaoiYurihentai:  Who's being racist/  Surely not me!  Did you
even READ what I said? 
Hawaii says:   2 March 2009   621621  
you dont have to call anyone african american because most have
mixed(mE) and they have adapted to that term and it is more polite to
say blcak poeople just dont say it cause they think the black people
are gonna get on the white people and i know i cant talk bout thta but
Hawaii says:   2 March 2009   683271  
and there are still rascist whites and yes black people do sometime
say rascist things i know i di hate on whote people sometimes
Lyncheh says:   2 March 2009   474632  
Black. White. Retarded. YES.

Every word used to describe the mentally impaired is turned into
something insulting.

Spastic, retard, cretin, moron...

But the words are legit.
Lyncheh says:   2 March 2009   531525  
However, I do believe that "retard" sounds harsh, merely because of
its negative playground connotations. </3
Hawaii says:   2 March 2009   326655  
if its a celebration to there sucess why not call them americans
Kirti says:   2 March 2009   922949  
"@Kirti:  Strange how whites are no longer the racist ones, it's the
black, Asians and Indians?  They're getting annoying now, we haven't
done anything in forever!"

I don't think it's wrong for them to resent us... privately. It's only
if they act on their resentment when they are not currently being
wronged that it bothers me. What really bothers me is when Americans
hear that a kid is Japanese American and start acting mean saying that
they bombed pearl harbor. What? That kid didn't bomb Pearl Harbor
anymore then the racist Caucasian kid bombed Hiroshima. And anyway,
more people died in Hiroshima. By far! And the American government had
warning about Pearl Harbor.

your teacher is a stupid ass
‹[--♪BobsBestBuddy♥--]› says:   2 March 2009   683217  
Your right, it doesn't matter. Anyways, in my area we just call
African Americans Blacks and Caucasians White. No difference.
saralyn247 says:   2 March 2009   678888  
Dude. Yes.

It doesn't make sense to me how you can say "I'm white, but you're
African American."
People are different colors. Get over it.

twiilightfreak says:   3 March 2009   718432  
you know the funny thing about this is, teachers have to tell you
this stuff, he/she probably couldn't have cared less about your so
called "political correctness" but he/she cared more about his job,
which is just incorrect in general. HA THERE
tiggerlemon101 says:   3 March 2009   496167  
@Lyncheh: Yeah, I know that there will ALWAYS be racist EVERYONES. 
No one race is perfect.  but guess what?  That means black people,

@Kirti: I don't get why an Aboriginal in eighth grade would resent me,
though.  I didn't do anything to him and vice versa.  That's the whole

@twiilightfreak:  Not this teacher.  He honestly believes that.  But I
don't care about him since he talks about wanting to get his wife
pregnant and when we go on our field trips into the woods, he's giong
to get angry and through a poor defenseless squirrel into the lake. 
So he can go eat himself.

Words are stupid and so are people. If someone gets offended by
something you say, so be it. They're the ones taking it personally
when you may or may not have meant it that way. Let them get upset or
pissed off or whatever the fuck they want. Words get people killed and
break up hardcore relationships and do so much damage. We should all
stop using words and just make out ALL THE TIME.
tiggerlemon101 says:   4 October 2009   134265  
Ha.  Indeed we should.

BREAKMYBALLS says:   5 October 2009   693222  
late post (:

i believe calling someone an African-African is better.
because calling someone BLACK refers more to racism. because one of
the African-American's properties is black or dark skin. and calling
an African-American black is also incorrect. why? because some
African-Americans inherit white skin from one of their parents. so
they're not exactly white either. so the long term :

and the autism fact?
a child might be slow in english, but fast in maths.
so that's not exactly le retarde, now is it?
BREAKMYBALLS says:   5 October 2009   585398  
so they're not exactly white either.
meant to say *black. thank you.
tiggerlemon101 says:   6 October 2009   511232  
Slow in English being the operative word.
En retarde meaning late or slow.

And if "African Americans" are ashamed that their skin is
black/brown/whatever, then that's their problem. They should be proud
to be whatever they are, just like they areproud to be smart or
generous or good at sports or whatever.  I am proud to be white
because that is the way Iwas born and I like it that way. The samecan
be said for blacks.
Kirti says:   6 October 2009   571449  
It's not worth being proud of your skin. It's not worth noticing.
tiggerlemon101 says :   8 October 2009   731543  
I'm not proud of my skin.  I am proud of who I am, and my race
is a huge part of that.
