So it was Red Kryptonite after all. I missed these really ridiculous red kryptonite reactions, and Racist, Redneck, Rep from the INS Superman is as ridiculous as can be.

I never liked the concept of nigger/nigga, one's bad and the other is good. Too easy to confuse, to slyly insult or to pretend it means nothing. No, as with all words, it's a word, and it's the context which helps defines it's meaning.

Walter Sobchak?

Maybe, but if he's like Sobchak then that means he's stupid and didn't mean to intentionally cause harm. And you even said before, he was trying in his own way to be friends. It's just that he was going about it the wrong way. Why you didn't stop him when his stories disgusted you I don't understand. By not shutting him up he thought he had an open invite to spew. And he thought you were becoming friends.

I've had to work with various of people in many jobs and if they wanted to talk about something I didn't, I let them know. "Don't talk to me about god unless you want me to shatter your belief foundations." And half the time they shut up. "You want to talk about the Backstreet Bays, okay, you do realize their songs are all homoerotic? 'I want it That Way' is about anal sex."

Your scenario doesn't work. And stop altering mine and claiming them as mine. See you cut out the time factor. Of course a guy doesn't have the right to grab a female's breast 2 seconds after they are introduced or make vulgar comments about body parts. That's not my scenario. Mine was after several hours of talking about sex and she seems okay with it, then it's okay to touch her breast. Sometimes that's called dating. (Will you be negating my response and pretend I didn't clarify it, again?)

Embezzling is a financial crime, something with a proven value. Using a racial slur is more of a perspective crime. Depends on who says it, in what context, and to who. But let's try similar-ating it this time~~~~
~~~~A banker starts working in a new bank, He keeps telling everyone that he has embezzled money at the banks he worked at in the past. Everyone just tries to ignore it, until hours later as he's leaving, he proudly proclaims he's embezzling money at this bank too.
~~~~~~Now what should have the other employees done differently?
I ask Vichus, since he seems impartial and honest, most of the time, did I alter it to fit the main situation?

I would think you would understand celebrity watching.
-Look, it's Superman!
-Look, it's dead Michael Jackson!

Damn, red kryptonite sure turns Superman into an asshole. Or is it the B-ball?

The kids were probably smart enough to know Superman only let the Urkel kid score and they were smart enough to know that if they protested they would just look whinny and petty, so they played along.

Ever worked in a factory, hot metal smell great.

See, maybe "socially awkward" gave the wrong impession. This notorious "nigga (not nigger)" guy is the type of guy who has no off switch. He's the type of person who would probably go into a job interview and use 4-letter words without caring, then wonder why he didn't get the job.

Black Panther Tim takes all mutations of the word nigger as the original, and while I disagree to the blindness towards its alternate meanings, I do think that nigger, nigga, niggaz, etc, are useless in modern vocabulary.

HOWEVER, just like that fool Imus and his "nappy headed hoes" debacle, this guy felt like whatever audience he says "nigga please" in is cool and no one should take offense.

In a twisted way, I agree with him. Talk is fucking cheap to me. The intentions behind them are what I look out for, the inflection in those words.

Like you said, he's a "stupid motherfucker," but you act like he's straight out of American History X.

BTW, I have a John Goodman picture that might be more appropriate. This is Goodman in Death Sentence

Take it away, Chris Rock!
