Re: Japs on Christmas


Fascism (n.)
 is an authoritarian political ideology that considers individual and social interests subordinate to the interests of the state or party. Fascists seek to forge a type of national unity, usually based on (but not limited to) ethnic, cultural, racial, or religious attributes. Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as its integral parts: nationalism, statism, militarism, totalitarianism, anti-communism, corporatism, populism, collectivism, and opposition to political and economic liberalism.[

how is "japs" racist? its short for japanese




It's simple. When you say "japs" in front of Japanese, you will know why it is.

And if you have no idea about "racist", you can say "chink" to Chinese, too.

I've been thinking my nationality is the GIANTS, my human race is the ORANGE on this board. But I might be under the illusion.

Re: Japs on Christmas


It's amazing that how twisted things have become, you can't say Merry Christmas but it's ok to insult an entire race.

Obviously ASU didn't know that it was a racial slur, so lets give him some slack.

Japs on Christmas


Interesting.... I assume "Jap" is [sign in to see URL] seemlingly mild
Chink and Gook seem to bite a little more (but Japs and Chinks aint Gooks)
But all of those are pretty weak in and of themselves
I think the delivery and intent used with those words is what gives it sting

I dont think anyone here has any hatred in their body, and at worst the words are used in humor.

Jap is a well known racial slur, to know that all you had to do was watch one WWII movie about the Pacific.

I'm not cutting anyone any slack, especially the little quips after people here were informed that it was a [sign in to see URL] nobody edited their comments after being told it was a slur. Even worse because we are Giants fans, ties to S.F. with a big Asian population, and anyone here should know better.

Let's just call a spade a spade & be done with it, it's extremely racist, the carrying on made it [sign in to see URL] forgiveness [sign in to see URL] that would matter to racists in internet land.

Bullshit that he didn't know. ASU has a history of using racial slurs and not caring.
