    Please don't take this as me defending or endorsing Fox News in any way, but what do you think the response would be if a conservative black panelist called a black liberal that name on Fox News? I could be wrong, but I think the outrage machine would kick into high gear.

    Also, this discussion reminds me of this scene from Black-ish.

     

    The outrage machine may in fact do so but it wouldn’t be from average every day black people in my opinion.

    That's fair, and I don't think I disagree. But I think white liberals would be incensed and be sure to let everyone know about it.

    Agreed very similar to how the only people outraged by this are conservative white males

    I think you might be confusing outrage with curiosity as to why there isn't more outrage from the left. But, I'll be honest, I don't really care too much so haven't really looked. I do follow a lot of conservative voices on twitter and haven't seen any outrage.

    True. This is the only place I have encountered this topic

    I wish most celebrities would shut-up about politics.  Most of them are completely ignorant about politics and economics.  Heck, many of them are ignorant on almost everything.  Being good-looking and good at pretending like you're someone else doesn't mean you have an informed opinion.

     

    Speaking of which, good looking and fit doesn't just apply to music and Hollywood - I think I saw a study where many company exec's are well above average with respect to fitness, height, etc.  I wonder when the left will start crying about how unfair the world is for short, fat and ugly people.

    I've actually seen articles in the past complaining about how life is a lot easier for attractive people.

    I also find it odd that those who complain about exec pay have no problem with Actors or Athletes getting paid absurd amounts of money.

    Completely agree.  And executives employ thousands of employees and have massive amounts of responsibility across the board.  Yet somehow they’re the bad guys, while the smut peddlers plunder and pillage.

    Is a black person referring to another person as a negro racist? Or are you really upset he called him token 

    Not upset at all. Just pointing out what a hypocrite you are.

    Still up 40% since the election; less than 2 years.   I am more than happy, as are most.

     

    Good luck.

    When Obama took office the Dow was a little under 8k. He left it at a little over 17k. Are you going to give him the credit for that growth too?
