What Kind Of Accent?

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on January 15, 2010

PG is listening to bloggingheads and looking a pictures from the GSU library. What a pleasant way to spend an evening.

The b heads chat is about Harry Reid, and the way black people talk. The word Negro is used quite a bit, and is considered acceptable. While what Mr. Reid said was perhaps phrased clumsily, the essence of what he said…that BHO was a black man who didn’t scare was acceptable to white people… was considered to be true.

The chat then turned to Trent Lott. And PG heard something that made him stop the podcast and write down what he heard.
“The difference between Harry Reid and Trent Lott is that Reid used the wrong words, but the Lott had the wrong idea”.
The rest of the chat went on about telling the difference between what people say, and the words they use to describe the thought. Someone suggested a year’s moratorium on controversy about insensitive things that people say. It was said that life would go on as before.
