For example, if I call someone an ignorant, lazy, racist, inbred, trailor-park redneck, then it's probably safe to say he's not a hard-working, self-educated farmer.
Ah trailor park... A good derogatory device all by its self used in the right sentence...
It's truly sad that we define groups by one person's comedy routine. hehehe
I couldn't disagree more. Think about it, it's a great thing.
Idiots think everyone with tan skin is an illegal immigrant, everyone with black skin is a gangsta rapper/crackdealer/elite athlete, and everyone with almond eyes is a math genius. Don't even get started with cab drivers, bearded Muslims and anyone who talks like the guy in Gladiator.
By doing this we lump white people in with the rest of the "dregs" of society. White people are no longer only judged by their lack of rhythm and small members. They are also part of that special group, the hated, the stereotyped, the shamed.
I'm not a big fan of these things, but honestly they exist, and as long as they do, all races religions and creeds should be crapped on equally… Far is it from me to think anyone is as good as I, or better yet, doesn't deserve a degrading moniker.
Does that make any sense?
