Saturday Night Card Game (“Big Boy” says “boy” and race card players go wild)

Saturday Night Card Game (“Big Boy” says “boy” and race card players go wild)

And now I rise to the defense of one Christopher James Christie:

George W. Bush nicknamed him “Big Boy.”

This dust-up is so stupid and pathetic it makes my head hurt.

You see, when you call a black man a “boy” it’s a racial pejorative. When you merely use the term “boy” as an expression in a sentence in the presence of a black man, it’s merely an expression.

Here’s Big Boy’s interaction with a crowd at a church forum (at:155)(via Hot Air):

Christie:  “You can yell all you want about “fix the public schools”
Man: “Fix the public schools!”
Christie: “Yeah, I hear ya, boy, I hear ya. I hear what you’re saying, but let me tell you something else. What I hear is the despair, I hear the despair of folks all over this state….”

Watch Christie Discusses Education Issues at Paterson Town Hall on PBS. See more from NJToday.

Obviously Big Boy used the term “boy” merely an expression. But the race card players went right to work.

It started with Blue Jersey:

Gov. Chris Christie Calls a Black Man “Boy” in Paterson, NJ

This week, Governor Chris Christie let his famous command of his own image slip and said something to an African-American man – in a church in Paterson – that we have not heard in many, many years in New Jersey. In America.

Accompanied by this video:

Here’s what Democratic Underground ran using the same video as Blue Jersey (emphasis in original):

Gov Christie calls African American man “Boy” during town hall meeting

BlueJersey.com reported Friday that during a town hall meeting at a church this week in Paterson, NJ, Governor Chris Christie let a racial slur slip when he called an African-American man a “boy,” a term closely related to the more severe “N” word. Christie has, in the past, touted a morally clean public image and has been quoted as saying “language matters; language is a window into attitude.”

Racist asshole

HuffPo ran with that theme as well:

Chris Christie Uses Term ‘Boy’ In Heated Exchange At African-American Church

During an event at an African-American church in Paterson, N.J., Gov. Chris Christie used the word “boy” during a heated exchange with a man in the audience. The governor has a loose and colloquial style, and no history of racial animus in his past, but his remark and how it’s been heard by the black community underscores the challenge Republicans face as the party begins its post-election outreach.

Raw Story put this parenthetical under the video:

“African American” is NOT a term one hears in the ‘hood nearly EVVEERRRRRRRR…! Trust me. It’s another whitey Liberal-Lefty ‘Feeeel Goooood’ label. Yep, you’ll hear black folks on MSNBC and on campus use it, but nowhere out in Real Life. Almost Non-Existent in Black Neighborhoods. Period.

    How can “African American” apply to the majority of blacks in this country? Wouldn’t it mean that they were born in Africa? Unfortunately, all of this is exacerbated by the great divider, I mean uniter. (slip of the tongue).

How does one “slip back” into a usage that is not part of one’s own cultural lingo. Boy oh boy, what nonsense.

“I hear you. Boy, DO I hear you.”

That is the way an honest reporter would render the quote.

But we really saw that ship sail a LOOOOooooooong time ago…

Boy, I tell ya, the “men” who are offended by the term “Boy, I hear ya!” are really immature boys.

Boy is related to the N-word? What the hell is wrong with these people.

If it’s used a pejorative, which is obviously not, in this case, it means “someone who has yet to earn the respect of men.” It has nothing to do with race, except racists can also use it to belittle someone of a different race.

The media are so obsessed, they fail at the “Smelly Fart” test, on a daily basis.

For those who don’t know, I call the test for racism the “Smelly Fart” test because it invariably occurs, that the first side to bring up the race card in a debate, is usually the most race obsessed. I.e. “Who smelt it, dealt it.”

He can protest that he used “boy” as an emphatic interjection, not a term of address, but it won’t make any difference. These are people who neither know nor care about the etymology of the word “niggardly”.

I’m convinced these reporters are brainwashed. And if they’re not, they know that the only way they’re going to get anywhere in their career is to follow the script they’re given. Literally, Soledad was handed talking points during an interview.

The black audience in the video did not react. Mired in false consciousness, I suppose. How lucky they are to have white progressives (and leaders like Jesse Jackson Jr.) looking out for their interests.

When your only tool is race-baiting, everyone looks like a racist. Our side needs to pound this point relentlessly–we fear the kneejerk accusations of racism far too much.

Maybe, before it is too late, he will realize that as long as he is a Republican and perceived as a viable presidential candidate, he will not be respected, liked or truthfully reported by the corrupt MSM. I still like him even though he has disappointed me, especially after kissing up to Obama.

Hey, if Van Jones says it’s Wacist…Then I gotta buy that it’s Wacist uttered by a Wascally Wacist.

Any questions,’Yo?

The problem with public schools is too much money. They have so much that they are distracted from their business of teaching knowledge and skills which have value in our world and market.

Another problem is parents who defer responsibility for the proper development of their children to someone else, principally the government.

With 96% chance of being correct, I will bet that the “man” in the audience elected to exchange his liberty for submission with benefits. It’s unfortunate that so many Americans do not understand the sacrifice they will be required to make, and that they have imposed on their fellow Americans.

It is dissociation of risk which causes corruption. It is dreams of material, physical, and ego instant (or immediate) gratification which motivates its progress. Both redistributive and retributive change are principal causes of dysfunction, and their continued exploitation will eventually lead to a convergence… dysfunctional convergence (aka clusterfuck).

The “man” in the audience voted for progressive corruption (PC) and is the beneficiary of that ensuing dysfunction.

And the obligatory emotional appeal: Think of the children! The human lives without a voice and, literally, without arms to protest their premeditated murder or assassination by scalpel, vacuum, or whatever else hedonistic sadists use to sacrifice their children.

This is what they wanted. This is what they voted for.

The industry of human and civil “rights” provided it to them at a profit. Let them thank their organizers for progressive corruption and the ensuing dysfunction. Unfortunately, we will all be the “beneficiaries” of dysfunctional convergence.

Oh, well. Judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the character of his actions. The people who hold MLK in high esteem, denigrate his memory through ignorance of his insight.

Garçon !!!

Who can remember Valerie Jarrett telling the guy with the stripes on his dress suit pants to get her a glass of wine?

Vice Chief of Staff – get me a f*ckin glas of wine , you pisshit. Now.

The last sentence is paraphrasing of course. She truly thought he was a waiter.

If meaning is open then this example is equally in play.

Use it or lose it.

Meanwhile, back on topic, at the wine tasting party over in the education building, they’re standing around holding their sides laughing and rolling in the aisles. And the people in Paterson are stuck with another year of crappy schools, union crooks, corrupt administators, incompetent teachers, and drop outs, thanks to their “friends” at HuffPo and the like who are always looking out for their best interests. That’s the genuine tragedy.

I’m happy to say that where I grew up, men and boys of every color call each other ‘boy’ regardless of their color. Nobody thinks it’s a pejorative.

The problem with these folks is that they don’t listen to tone or any of the niceties of language which are factored into the connotations of words. For them, everything is what their petty little minds want it to be.

Blacks will be slaves until they let go of slavery.
But first they must reject the racist race-baiters.
