In "Twidiots", we collect the choicest thoughts on a particular topic from Twitter's millions of users.
Celebrity chef Paula Deen recently admitted to using "the N word" in the past, causing public outrage and leading the Food Network to give her the axe. One would hope that in the year 2013, this issue would be a bit of a no-brainer, but our pals on Twitter seem to see this sensitive racial topic a little differently.
Why is Paula Deen saying the "N-word" such a big deal? Black people can say racist things about white people, but white people can't? #dumb Kaitlyn Nicole. (@KaitlynG40) June 24, 2013
Why can black artists say the N word and not get in trouble but when a white person does it they get fired. #RacistAgainstWhites Max Bernstein (@maxberny38) June 23, 2013
How come black people can call white people 'crackers' without it being racist but once we call them the n word they call us racist ?ø!b¥ Mç?rüm (@ColbyMcCrum) June 21, 2013
One thing i will never understand is when black people refer to themselves as 'the N word' yet when white people use it it's racist Victoria India Price (@vipxo) April 23, 2013
Why can't we call black people the "n" word but its all good when they call white people crackers ? It's still racist ! #foreal CarlieNicoleDills. (@Carlieclayton) November 25, 2012
If I say the N word and that makes me a racist Then when a black person says the N word.. They must be racist too. Right? Glitter Hitler (@yagerlchels) June 22, 2013
