These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

Old post. This isn't Japanese, and it's not a Japanese pilot show, it was a parody and it's American made and it was filmed in Toronto.

Actually I believe it was X, I responded in that thread as well with almost the same response. It had to be awhile back, over a year cause I can't seem to track it down. I'll keep digging.

Hahaha, that wasn't that funny but yeah. Yeah they're making fun of black people and stereotyping them. Not much we can do. Oh well.

You think that's bad, back home we have black peppermint candy called Negro. I love it. It's hard candy that melts. Tastes like peppermint mixed with milk or something.

Here:

What's your opinion on this candy?

You gotta be fucking kidding me. Are people that stupid in the states? Yeah it is Yugoslavian candy and it's probably some Serbian or something giving them out. Messege of racism? No fuck you that's a great national candy besides what the name says. :roll:

I'm not 100% certain but I believe the writer and director are American. I believe that most, if not all the actors are Canadian. Any time you film anything in Canada you have to have a certain percentage of the crew/actors be Canadian, and looking at the casting list a large portion of the actors look to be Canadian, perhaps the older folks are actually Japanese themselves.

But my man they ain't saying the "N-Word" They are saying "nigga"

There is a difference. Black people all over the united states are calling each other "nigga" even people who ain't black. I've been told "whats up nigga" by a black person before. You cannot limit a word to only be used by one race, and no word should be banned because its freedom of speech. You ban the N word whats from stopping the government from banning the word freedom like china did?

They don't have to say nigga to act black, they could say something else, but thats the word that best fits the punch line. Don't take it offensive because they aren't saying it to be offensive. Its just a joke.

I don't use the word nigga or nigger I'm Chicano I ain't about that shit and I ain't trying to be black. I don't trip when peeps call each other nigga but it shows that they are of lower level of intelligence. There is a time and a place for everything. If you go around calling every single person nigga your an idiot and you need to learn English. Slang should only be used around your friends. But I ain't trippin thats just my personal views. If you wanna go calling every one you meet nigga then go ahead but I bet you can't name one college graduate that goes around talking like that because they are above that.

I call black people the same thing I call any other race. I don't see a black and say in my head "oh a black person" I just see the person not the race. Thats the problem in our society, it ain't the race that makes the person its the person that makes the race.

I think it's disrespectful for other cultures to jump into a debate that is an intra-race issue. Some blacks hate that word, some don't, so is it fair for a non-black person to jump into the shit and be like black people talk like this so I should be able to talk like this too. Shit is fucked up. I've heard jews call each other kikes and make holocaust jokes, girls call each other bitches, and Mexicans call each other mojado, beaner, etc., should I jump in saying that shit too? NO. Fuckin idiots...
