Pointing fingers at others....

It's pretty easy to sit on a pedestal and look down at everyone, isn't it? So many of us like to think we are not prejudiced, that we look at all people and accept who they are. The incident with Paula Deen is what's driving this particular blog today. I am getting a bit tired of people pretending they themselves have never used a racial slur, or have no prejudices. We all do. It's unfortunate. But the reality is, some people in the south still talk the way they do, people everywhere have a certain idea of what particular people are like. What I find funny is the people that are up in arms about someone using the "N" word are some of the same people that will call someone a "Faggot" without blinking an eye. What's the difference? Is it acceptable in ANY circumstance? I'm not perfect, I am the first to admit that. but I for one am a bit tired of people pretending to have these hearts of gold and outcries all the while behind closed doors doing exactly what they themselves condemn. Besides, if we were going to condemn every person who used some type of racial slur against ANYONE that's a whole hell of a lot of finger pointing and you best be prepared to have a few pointing at yourselves. And why are racial slurs still around? Same as bullying. Honestly, it's up to parents to instill good values in their children, not for them to rely upon television or the Internet and then to wonder where their own kid went so wrong...
