  •  I don't like it when it is said at all, (5+ / 0-)

    because that is how it's perpetuated. If stupid [pale faces] hear it being bantered about then they tell themselves it's like permission to use it too. And then, I --get to decide when to walk away, so as not to be associated with whom-ever is invoking said lame-ass excuse, because I don't even want to lend anyone the idea that I am okay with that.

    I also hate it when the word is put into music. I understand why it's sometimes there, but it won't get played in my house. I don't want to normalize that word for my kids. I don't even know how to explain that to them in that context. In our house, that word is considered by far, one of the worst curse words, way more offensive than the word, Fuck.

    Flush is a first class asshole. I am very tired of this crap, not just in terms of his racism, but also misogyny. I have been trapped in military work spaces where his show was played continuously. It was a real morale killer for me. It made me feel awkward whenever he made racist diatribes, for obvious reasons. And then I got to live with his special "femi-nazi" lessons on how to humiliate women who compete with insecure males too. He has first amendment freedoms--but I don't see why he needs to be funded and sponsored as a show on military bases, esp given how his crap violates the military's rules and regs regarding race and gender issues in the service.

    He is a horrible example and he is a direct threat to good order and discipline and his continued presence on the air on AFRTs is a sign of just how far, the Brass has not evolved on any important social issue of the day.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

      to help him get the military vote. If taxpayer dollars are funding his program, there should be a campaign to stop this as well!
