alponsejones: Their attitude maddens & frustrates me to no end--I often ask: "How is a word de- termined to be 'racist' or 'hateful' simply by virtue of who employs it?" Of course, I never get a co- herent response. The same can be said of the types of music which have only 3 categories for any- one of the female persuasion & none of them are complimentary. It is confusing, as you said would be the case were I & my friends to refer to ourselves by derogatory & disparaging terms. How this is viewed as "empowering" black females is a complete mystery to me . . . ?

That MSNBC host would be the one and only Touré who was responding to a section in Wayne LaPierre’s recent article on The Daily Caller. The NRA chief was discussing the various reasons law-abiding citizens need a firearm, including after a natural disaster.

 “After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.”
