“niggers have got to go.”

Pretty abrasive title, huh? Just imagine if this comment was made by John McCain or Glenn Beck. Heads would roll. Protests would be launched. Someone would get fired. Al Sharpton would be on television again. Here’s the complete quote.
“There’s like a civil war going on in America and there’s two sides. There’s black people… and there’s niggers. And the niggers have got to go.”
I went to a black majority high school and lived on the black majority side of town growing up. I’m white but I’ve been the victim of blatant racism. Given my own personal life experiences I happen to agree with the quote in red. So do lots of black people. I think the word nigger is horribly offensive. But the double standard still alive today is even worse.
Now for some context:e Who actually said the quote in red? Take a look: source video here, it starts about twenty seconds into this video. Hear the laughter? Hear the applause? What a crazy world we live in.
