Why does the N word still hold power when used by a WHITE as opposed to a black?
Call me a beaner, I will laugh, and say damn right, a greaser, a wop, bring it on!!
The insistance to hold separate oneself, as Whopi does here, and the world of existance is alienating, and has caused me to drop friends. Like I as a girl never experienced unkindness, and scorn, next to my very native american looking mother, which we had talked about. There were places later in life in the south we could not stop we were too brown.
As I've gotten older I have also seen my very blonde friend experience discrimnations on multiple occasions as well.
I don't think black people understand how selfish they appear to the world. How one sided and victimized they view their experience. It is time for maturity, and growth. We are all discriminated against, it is how WE react and compose ourselves. Only then will justice and dignity be given to oneself. Enough is enough. Saying your experience is separate from mine is just untrue. I do not trust another one of my 'race' just because, he/she understands, that would be idiotic. Maybe this would be the first freedom for black people to understand that not all experience with black skin is the same.
It is funny Whoppi, my Grandmother, 82 now, in the place of her birth, was also prevented from voting, by the Republicans.
Strange that the Democrats are using these 'tricks' to get justice for your family injustice, at our nations expense? Different worlds or the same?

I'm 51 yrs old. i was never a slave. but i am the only black person who drives for my company. i've been there for over 14 yrs. i still have to hear the same bullshit. how did you get this job. i still get followed by the cops. i drive a 2013 mercedes benz live in a nice community and still get followed. so when a white person says blacks are living in the past. maybe that's because we still get treated like we are in the past.

Elizabeth is an idealistic little madam who goes through life wearing rose tinted glasses.

Usually minorities take a word that is hurtful and try to take the sting out of it by making it something positive. For ex: women sometimes call each other bitch but they won't mean it in a negative way. For Black Americans Nigga is like saying my friend, you know "My nigga". Maybe people believe that whites cannot say the word because they are not minorities and it is officially a phrase coined by minorities for minorities. Just a thought. I don't understand why white people wanna be called nigga anyway lol

How that cunt Hasselbeck managed to turn herself into a victim, even though they we're discussing discrimination in society is just baffling. But then again that's television. Full of ignorance and melodramatic sentimentality.

Whoopi lives in the same world as Liz, but she has a different mentality.

Stupid little cunt started crying because she was put in her place by a strong, older black woman.  I criticize blacks just as much as anyone else, and I hate when liberals and feminists use the word "privilege", but when Whoopi says they live in different worlds there is real truth to that.  That shit can be true due to all kinds of things like our jobs, our personalities, our friends, and most definitely our skin color. Again, its not a good reason for people to whine about all the injustices in the world but yeah life is not fair and yeah we live in "different worlds".

Whoopi is telling the truth. I agree. We do live in different worlds when it comes to racism. I hate the fact that things are so damn different for us all. Just wish we could all get along and love one another as a whole. Maybe one day.
