Bill Maher took his mask off and showed his racism. This is what Charles Clymer had to say: https://gyazo.com/639c7c2b4f167092628667f310d009f5

Racism is unacceptable.

Racism? Why? What he said was not necessarily racist; it was a joke, but a joke in poor taste. Racial issues are very very sensitive over here. He should have known better than to use a derogatory term on television regardless of context and intent. I doubt he cares very much about offending people though.

Who cares? He's not the first or the last. It's just a word in the end. Sure it's offensive but what do you propose we do? Jail him for it?

Bill Maher is an offensive guy, he's offended nearly every group under the sun. None of this is shocking.

He has freedom of speech.

Tabby, when you say he has freedom of speech it seems very insincere, because you don't want everyone to have freedom of speech.

Welp, sorry about that. It's a free country with free speech though, you're gonna get offended once in awhile. Nobody has the right to not be offended. Not Whites, not Blacks.

If Bill Maher triggers you I suggest not watching his show. I can't stand the guy either, and avoiding his content has worked pretty well for me.

^^Being extremely sensitive on the issue of race has not really improved race issues.

Maybe you want to go back to those insensitive days in the 19th century where blacks were treated like shit.

Black people care.

Well, they shouldn't. Even in rural Oklahoma, black people have called me a cracker before. Some people have called me a tomato as well (half Native American) and I literally do not give a damn. If everyone flips out when someone uses a simple word, they need to grow some balls and accept the real world. Yes, racism is wrong. But complaining about it doesn't get anyone anywhere. So if everyone could shut the hell up and get some thicker skin, that'd be nice.
blacks were treated like shit.

The Irish were treated just as badly, but I hear no sympathy for them. Is it because they're white?! Racist!

Words are placeholders for meanings. A harsh meaning is far worse than a harsh placeholder.

People have reasons to be offended, but those reasons are not necessarily good reasons.

In this case Bill should have been wise enough to know that his remarks would offend many people and cause backlash. He apologized, he didn't expect the backlash he received but he should have, but he didn't.

"^^Being extremely sensitive on the issue of race has not really improved race issues."

I agree with this, but it extends beyond just race. Being extremely sensitive in general is a very, very bad thing and only hurts those who are offended. Change can happen, but this is not the answer.

Yes! Exactly! Someone offends you? Big deal. Move on with life. People treat is as if they're being personally harassed.

Relax, childish weirdo. This thread was about Bill Maher using the N-word, not about an offensive word against Irish people. I'm absolutely not racist, never been racist in my life. But since you brought them up I want to say that it's terrible that they got treated like shit, just like black people.

As for you Robin, try to behave like a normal person. Otherwise, get skranked.

^Poles were called names and put in death camps . Did they simply blame everything wrong in Poland on Germany and then did not do anything to improve their lives?

Are you implying that blacks didn't try to improve their lives?
