This ridiculous article is an outrage. Where was this person when everyone was making big over the "n" word? Probably yelling about how any use of it by whites was verbotten. Let's compare some of what he's said and make substitution to show his Liberal hypocrisy.
"she testified a "creepy-ass cracker" was following him. There is nothing
illegal about that. Jeantel said she didn't even know it was a racial
slur, and numerous commentators have noted that some in Florida use the
term in a non-derogatory, colloquial sense."
Uh, they also used the "n" word when I grew up in a non-derogatory and colloquial sense, where it wasn't the use of the word but the how it was used which made the difference. I never heard any Liberals make that argument recognizing that about the "n" word, even though they were often told that in the 60's and even into the 70's.
"Initially, cracker was not a pejorative term, but Ferris says it has
become one, the equivalent of redneck. Its meaning and intensity as an
insult depends on who is saying it and who is listening."
Well, initially neither was the "n" word. The French in New Orleans used French word for black which was nigre, same as they use it today and also for comparison let's look at the word tigre, which we call "tiger" in English. What happened to the word "tigre"? It morphed in American use to "tigger" and one example is it's use in the Pooh series of books. Guess what happened to the word nigre? Same thing. Just that simple. So, how did the "n" word get such a horrible reputation? Association, typically with added negative qualifiers to the word, so that eventually the word increasingly fell out of favor among those who felt it had become an impolite word, if not completely out of use. Were they ashamed of the word, or of it's association? Trying to get that truth is like trying to get any truth from a Liberal.
And now we see the "coup de grace" of reason in this next part.
In the circumstances
described in court, Ferris notes, it was more likely a quick way for
Martin to say he was in danger. "If it is used by blacks (among
themselves), it is usually with one meaning: Watch out. He didn't say it
to Zimmerman. He said it to convey a message to a friend. He said,
'trouble is coming.'"
Well, let's turn it around and have him justify something similar.
"In the circumstances described in court, this reporter notes, use of the "n" word was more likely a quick way for Zimmerman to say he was in danger. "If it is used by whites (among themselves), it is usually with one meaning. Watch Out! Zimmerman didn't say it to the person who shot him. He said it to convey a message to the white officer on the phone, he was saying "trouble is coming. "
These CNN reporters just stumble all over themselves due to their Liberal foolishness.
