Read his post in a sarcastic tone to get the joke.
Not end of story. You can call most people black. Many prefer it to African-American. You can't call people a "black *******" in the same way you might call someone a "stupid *******." It's the use of the adjective that is damning. Try it sometime the next time you're mad at a black guy who is a with a bunch of his friends out in a public and see what happens.
And of course, if you yourself are black and this is your opinion then I stand corrected. Obviously it varies between person to person. But many people were offended by the way he used the adjective "black," which was attached to the word "*******," and usually when you attach an adjective to that word with the intention of insulting someone, it's not used with a positive connotation. Unless you're talking to a friend whom you're just messing around with, such as "you smart *******, I love you for saving me from looking like an idiot in front of colleagues at that meeting."
What are you, racist? Are you trying to imply all black people like to fight and resort to violence immediatly when they don't like someone or something they said? Are you implying he'll get "jumped" by a "gang" of black guys for calling one of them "black ----?" I honestly can't believe we are still stuck with this mentality in AmeriKKKa! all you are doing is perpetuating the idea that all young black men are "Thugs" that will commit assault if "dissed." I bet you hope stevie gets some "capps" in his white "a******"
ETA: i'm sure you'll come back and try to say you really aren't racist and have alot of black friends and therefore cant be racist but your true self has already shown itself to me.
