Doesn't she understand that that word just means the color black in some languages? This is funny, but is this lady really that mad?

shes so mad she will probably sue anyone who ever came into contact with that couch, including the manufacturer of the label the racial slur was printed on. the ink maker, too. her 7 year old daughter is so traumatized by this, she will never be the same. her husband is now unable to perform his marital duties, and she herself is so upset she will probably never be able to work again. al sharpton and jesse jackson are on the way.


very truly yours,

Umm, are you sure "******" is a color in some languages? Or are you thinking of "negro" (which is the color black, that's where the term for black people came from).

"N|gger" is not a translation for "black" in any language I've ever heard. "Negro" is "black" in Spanish. I think I'm justified in circumventing the swear-filter in this context.

The only language I know of in which "niger" means "black" is Latin, which is not spoken in any country, least of all China.

Also I found this part funny.

Moore, 30, who describes herself as an African-American born and raised in New York, said it was her 7-year-old daughter who pointed out the label just after delivery men from the Mississauga furniture store left.


Where's that Maddox article...

What a dumb woman... yeah I am sure Chinese people are evil guys setting up furniture with racial slurs...

Not everyone thinks about the USA you know?

Yep, they probably learned it from watching American movies like "Rush Hour", or any number of other Hollywood productions.

In my view, Hollywood's about as racist and sexist as they come.
