    Not as low on the list as Black people continuing to make racist comments is... it helps perpetuate the problem into the future.

    It seemed like you didn't realize you were doing it, I was trying to be helpful.

    Here's another good piece of advice, if you're not a rape victim, don't compare things to rape except things that are also literally rape.

    true...


    It's like a victim of robbery, going on and robbing other people to get back what you lost, from completely different people.

    I'd say its more like someone who's been bullied making snide comments at the expense of the bully once they get into a position where they don't have to worry about said bully selling them into slavery or lynching them or not letting them attend integrated schools.

    I kinda mixed my metaphor there at the end.

    It showed through to explain your point... I get it. But I don't agree. Now you are equating Black people making racist comments to Ralphie beating up the red headed kid in a Christmas story....

    These types of comments are made by peopel who were not victims, and made about people who weren't involved in the "crime" in the first place. Literally all it does is keep the ball rolling.


    It's more like a kid that was bullied hitting puberty and starting to bully other kids...

    I just find it hilarious we have a 4 page thread on something stupid that Micheal Irvin had to say
    Here is a reality check. Micheal Irvin is an idiot, idiots say goofy shit.

    Was it stupid to say...yes but maybe if we look at the other side of things it would be a little more clear why comments and lasting division is still there. If you hold a group of people down from say the late 1700's till say the Voting Rights Act in 1964 (when black REALLY got the right to vote) don't be surprised if there is a little bit of animosity within that culture towards yours.

    If my Dad was not allowed to use the same water fountain or bathroom as someone of another ethnicity, if he were not allowed to vote or threatened with physical harm if he did then maybe my Dad would have instilled some racial angst in me. How many black mayors, governors, senators were in office when Irvin was a child? Point is Micheal Irvin is a product of a different time and culture. One that is thankfully fading into history slowly but surely.

    Not saying what he said was right, just saying before we get our white panties in a wad and start screaming RACISM, maybe we should consider the whole story and our history. White people telling African Americans to just get over it cause things are ok now is just as realistic as telling a spouse to forget the fact you were unfaithful to them because your faithful now. Its something that takes time to forgive.

    Why is this thread in the Ravens football section of the forum? Seems to me that the content is more along the lines of some of the other areas...
