...Jay Z.

Hillary has not yet responded if she supports the use of such offensive and racist terms at her rally, although MSNBC is chomping at the bit to get to the bottom of this.

We shall not, however, hold our breath to see if this use of the N word, will make the news in the same way it did when Don King used it at a Trump rally.

What? This is big. YUGE.

The N word is never appropriate.

Or is it sometimes?

Edit: I'm not sure it's as offensive as a democrat plant wearing a rebel flag shirt at a Trump rally. But it still ought to be the top story at MSNBC for the weekend.

It's kind of a watchword, a word that shows you're part of a group. It's like Iowans being okay with fellow Iowans calling Iowa Ioway, but objecting if anyone else does it.

Remember Rush Hour?
Chris Tucker: "What's up my n--?"
(Casual conversation ensues, and he's invited into the back room.)
Jackie Chan: "What's up my n--?"
(All hell breaks loose.)

A lot of group insults work that way, where a member of the group can use it neutrally while it's an insult if someone else uses it.

What group does Don King belong to that he can't use it?

Hair Club for Comic Book Characters?

We both know the answer to your question, and you're probably right if you say it isn't fair.

I have a really good book of Scottish humor, given to me by a Scottish colleague of mine. If it had been written by an Englishman, it wouldn't have been quite as funny.

Ah ... this incapacity for Americans to say what is the "n word". Except for the people who could be described as [n word]s by racists ...

Standard white-dude's trying to mask their own racism by obfuscating and finger-pointing to the "hypocrisy". It's OK, intellectual honesty and self-truth are fucking hard to learn. Most never do.

Thanks for the rent-free space in your head. Would have been nice if you'd cleaned it up a bit before you rented it out, though.

Well, it would be if it was a Trump rally.

See: http://www.businessinsider.com/jay-z-hillary-clinton-concert...

Quote:
Jay Z was entirely uncensored Friday night at a concert for Hillary Clinton.

The rapper repeatedly used the n-word and dropped the f-bomb as he performed “F—WithMeYouKnowIGotIt” and his hit “Dirt off Your Shoulder” song at a Cleveland rally.

"You're tuned into the motherf----- greatest," a voice said as Jay Z appeared onstage.

“If you feelin’ like a pimp n----, go and brush your shoulders off,” Jay Z rapped. “Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off. N----- is crazy baby, don’t forget that boy told you. Get that dirt off your shoulders."

Jay Z also performed the song "Jigga My N----," in which he boasted that he was "Jay-Z, motherf-------!
"

Speaking of which:

Quote:
Today, Trump told a campaign crowd in Florida:

…then Hillary said, ‘I did not like Donald Trump’s lewd language.’ My lewd language! I’ll tell you what: I’ve never said what he (Jay Z) said in my life! But that shows you the phoniness of politicians and the phoniness of the whole system, folks.”

Hillary's message for the last few weeks has been almost exclusively focused on "Donald Trump says sexist things!"

Was there anyone in Hillary's campaign staff who maybe balked at Jay-Z headlining a Hillary Clinton tent revival meeting? Was there nobody who said "Yeah, if he opens his mouth at all, he will severely undercut our message. Maybe . . . we should get Pat Boone"?

Are they that tone deaf at Kamp Klinton?

(I'm almost 100% certain that Podesta fired off twenty e-mails full of racist slurs complaining about the choice of Jay-Z. Future wikileaks will tell all.)

Trump said it? He can shut his little bitch mouth, since that's how he moved on her.
