EtcetEraThread Kendrick Lamar calls out white fan for rapping n-word onstage with him at concert
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Placing blame and responsibility upon marginalised groups for racial tensions/racism. Ignoring historical context. Previous infractions.
*start moving on. I say in the sense that the debates over the use of the word are the cause of a lot of frayed tension between black people and non-black, and it’s usually the people who are trying to be respectful that are made to feel frustrated and sidelined. I say that as a white person who despises the word, would never use it in any context, and fully who acknowledges the centuries of abuse black people and people of colour have suffered. I simply cannot see how argument that ‘you can’t say it, but we can’ will bring us closer together and heal the seismic rift (that white people are very much the cause of, may I add).

EtcetEraThread Well, Ricky Gervais tweeted me and now his fanbase is attacking me.
Reason User Warned: Victim blaming.
You mocked and belittled him, he responded without a personal attack. You shouldn’t have been rude if you didn’t want a backlash. You know what Twitter’s like. He created The Office. Even if everything post-Extras has been crap, your comment is off-base. Don’t be a knob next time.
