"'Looking at the dictionary it would appear that the term jungle bunnies is pejorative and is a racist slur relating to African-Americans.'
"'Needless to say I did not mean to use any offensive racist term and was referring to the urban jungle.'
"He added: 'As for the bunny bit it was originally 'animals', but I thought people might object to me calling fellow humans this so I chose something I thought was innocent and also cuddly.'"

"On his radio talk show Wednesday, as revealed by Media Matters, Limbaugh cited a Chicago Tribune article concerning the new Triple Double Oreo cookie, a cookie that has three wafers and both chocolate and vanilla creme filling to separate them.
"'The Triple Double Oreo,' he continued. 'You wait, it isn't going to be long before it's called the Or-Bam-eo, or something like this. Well, it's a biracial cookie, here. And this story is from the Chicago Tribune, and it's all about Kraft's juicing up its investment in the Oreo in recent years. Legitimate businesses.'"

Good on NY Post for this story, but they won't retract their "Hooker" story about Nafissatou Diallo, the woman who come forth about Dominique Strauss-Kahn allegedly raping her? Hmph.--AJP "Faruq 'Peter' Wells--who worked on the 'Today' show, 'Dr. Oz' and 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'--endured the abuse after returning from a vacation and eventually quit his job when NBC's Human Resources Department told him to ignore the problem, the court papers charge.

"The worst indignity came when one co-worker pelted him with the doll and barked, 'Here's your long-lost daughter!' the papers say."

"Appearing on the Caplis and Silverman radio show last Friday, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) said, “Now I don’t even want to have to be associated with [Obama], it’s like touching a tar baby and you’re stuck, you’re part of the problem now. You can’t get away.” The term “tar baby” is often considered a slur towards African Americans. Indeed, the term has such a derogatory history that the Oxford American dictionary revamped its definition to reflect the word’s racial undertones. If Lamborn wishes to cross-check, he should ask both then-Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) — both of whom caught controversy for uttering the distasteful phrase."

"A "fearsome" muscle-bound Hell's Angel called 66-year-old Keith DeGroot a "fucking Jew" and knocked his eyeglasses off. So "Cockney Keith" broke the guy's skull with his walking stick. This glorious underdog victory will cost Keith 18 months in jail."

"'How are they going to out fire-breathe each other? I mean where this rhetoric has gone to at this point? It's only 2010. And we're having Newt Gingrich, as we were talking about before, calling [the president] an anti-colonial Luo tribesman. Luo tribesman,' Maher said.

"'That's the new Kenyan, Larry. And Kenyan, of course, was code for [the N-word]. But that's where they are. They can't say it out loud. But that's where this whole campaign is going to be.'"

"If we truly believe in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," then it is only fair that the boxing world punish Mayweather. I understand he's the industry's cash cow. But this kind of hypocrisy only fertilizes racial tension while simultaneously lining the pockets of people who make their living manipulating that tension.

Mayweather should not be judged by the color of his skin, but by the content of his YouTube comments. If a half-hearted apology was not enough to spare Imus, Schlessinger, et al, then it shouldn't spare him.

And if it does, then what does that say about us? "

"I've been called colored boy, coon, monkey," said Dontrail Mathis, 33, a painter's helper at the plant in Paris who began highlighting racist conditions in December 2006. "When Obama won, they went off. My superiors said 'If he ain't white, it ain't right.'

"A lawyer representing a Westlake Village man who was charged Tuesday in the fatal shooting of a Pasadena art college instructor said his client had become upset after hearing his wife subjected to "a racial and sexual slur."

Dmitry Gorin, whose law firm is representing Steven Ronald Honma -- arrested Sunday in connection with the weekend slaying at a Persian new year's party -- said the 54-year-old engineer had been traumatized from years of insults targeting his Japanese heritage."

"Looking back, Reverend Moiba says he has always liked the town even though he says he has been harassed because of his skin colour. In one instance he says a family asked for another priest to perform a funeral service. In another, a stranger at a petrol station uttered racial slurs.

But what upsets Reverend Moiba the most is that his congregation did not take his complaints seriously."
