|We would have sworn that said "nickel"|
Mark Twain, racist snack cakes, a teacher who dares say the-word-that-must-not-be-named (nigger for those wondering) and even Hallmark cards and Black holes are all on the chopping block for using variations of words that dare go against the prevailing winds of tolerance that sweep across the tableau of American life at an increasingly intolerant speed.
The day that DWLs, Black racial agitators and those running Black Run America (BRA) decide that The White House is in need of a more appropriate for the 21st century name upgrade is the moment you know Pre-Obama America is never coming back.
A more all-inclusive name will be needed one day, since The White House reeks of the putrid scent of white privilege, supremacy and paternalism.
Don't believe us? Just look at what happened to a statue of George Washington, whose visage as The Father of our Country was no veneer worthy enough for Black people to gaze upon as they celebrated the true father of BRA, Martin Luther King, on his righteous day.
We approach the day when The White House will be renamed and creep ever closer to the moment that many of the monuments in Washington D.C. (those relics of an evil nation) will be torn down, those antiquated celebrations of Dead White Males failing to align with the progressive time period we live in now.
Look no further then this story to see how crazy things are getting, as mere regional dialect is misconstrued as a mispronunciation of harmless word that sounds an awful lot like the-word-that-must-not-be-named:
Rachel Baldwin is defending her company's new commercial that has gone viral for all the wrong reasons.
The Jax Bargain Plywood ad has received more than 4,000 hits on YouTube and is the subject of jokes on Comedy Central.Ruth Taylor, a woman in the commercial, sings: "Save me a nickel. Save me a dime.
Jax Bargain Plywood can do it every time."Bloggers claim the jingle contains the "N" word."The e-mails that we've gotten are that we are being racist," Baldwin said. "They can't believe we got an African-American woman to say that. They're making a lot of derogatory comments about her."Baldwin said she's disgusted at the growing number of online comments targeting her staff and Taylor, who's a Gospel singer.
One e-mail reads, "Your commercial is deplorable. Save me a what? People are beginning to notice, and it's becoming a joke on the Internet and it's not funny."
Taylor said in a phone interview Friday that the allegations are ridiculous, even moreso because she herself is black."She was hot. She's mad," Baldwin said of how Taylor felt about the allegations."It sounds like several things," customer Lorraine Chavis said. "It depends on what ear is listening. When I hear the commercial, I'm listening for how much I can save. What's the bargain."
|That didn't sound like nickel...|
It brings to mind the classic South Park episode, "With apologies to Jesse Jackson" or, more commonly referred to "The Nigger Guy" episode.
The ultimate naggers appear to DWLs and many Black people who find ever nefarious intentions behind even slightly mispronounced words.
Even Alf, a lovable alien who starred in his own eponymous 80s sitcom dared to say the-word-that-must-not-be-named.
It's time to lighten up big time. A nickel, a nagger, what does it matter?
Of course it matters: the prevailing winds of intolerance will blow any person, business or TV show that dare use the-word-that-must-not-be-named, even if it is a mispronunciation of another word.
