Yeah you did.

Why are you backpeddling so fast? Own your racism.

Okay if I did, tell me who I called a "Spade"

racist gonna be racist

That's what I thought.

You got nothing.

At a minimum, you are a bigot of some nature against a certain group of people. You may or may not be a racist.

I've got an index finger. I use it to point out racists. I'm pointing it at you.

C'mon Fit, the easily triggered people (you belong in this group) find using any mascot name that refers to an Indian tribe as racist and offensive......didn't 50 years ago, but they do now. Threw such a fit they brow beat liberal university administrators into changing a bunch of them.

Now you're going to feign ignorance of the negative connotations of "calling a spade a spade" - and can't understand there is a group out there that would brand you a racist for using the term???? Really, they to it all the time to hammer "those of white privilege" - and you are right there with them!!

C'mon buddy, own your racism!!! Admit that you typed it and didn't realize you used a term that the triggered could brand you with.

Me, I really don't care and the term doesn't bother me.....but we live in virtue signaling times.......

Own your racism!!

So we’re all in agreement that the Texans owner using the colloquial expression “inmates running the prison” in a correct context wasn’t racist. Good to know.

This isn't news to anyone. Everyone on this forum knows it. Some people don't care.

But let's call a spade a spade.

People are going to be on this forum all day trying to deflect, point the finger at other people and say things like. " But Hillary this" and "but Obama that".


Let's not pretend anymore. The man's immigration policy comes from a personal hatred of the browning of America.

Please define for the the term I just bolded. Just what is a "spade"??

I guess I find it a bit ironic that you would use what MANY would term as a racist saying - and you aren't part of the group that would howl so you're not off the hook that way.

Now, because I'm not looking for something offensive under every rock and on every word, I really don't care - but a guarantee you there are people that would accuse you of being racist while saying someone else is racist just by what you typed in the bold above.......

Care to defend yourself?

Sorry I had no idea you had never heard the phrase.

Perhaps this will help.

To "call a spade a spade" is a figurative expression which refers to calling something "as it is",[1] that is, by its right or proper name, without "beating about the bush"—being outspoken about it, truthfully, frankly, and directly, even to the point of being blunt or rude, and even if the subject is considered coarse, impolite, or unpleasant. The idiom originates in the classical Greek of Plutarch's Apophthegmata Laconica, and was introduced into the English language in 1542 in Nicolas Udall's translation of the Apophthegmes, where Erasmus had seemingly replaced Plutarch's images of "trough" and "fig" with the more familiar "spade." The idiom has appeared in many literary and popular works, including those of Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, W. Somerset Maugham, and Jonathan Swift.

call a spade a spade
To address or describe the true nature of someone or something, even if it is unpleasant. The term originated from a translation of an ancient Greek phrase, but is considered offensive by some due to the later use of the word "spade" as a racial slur

I didn't call anyone a spade.

I used the entire phrase in it's original context.

The fact that you and others are attempting to claim I am a racist because I used this phrase is absolutely pathetic.

just like DJT wasn't calling Haitian's individuals out as shiteholes.....

see what happens when you bring a plastic knife into RPG protected area.....

I actually believe you used it as an innocent colloquial reference......however, your trolling history precludes such.....

therefore, you deserve line 4 every time you come with bs rhetorical posits....

we're not racists....we're simply sick of stupid bs.....and DJT is simply frank in the arena of pointing out the obvious......kinda like somebody else I know....

one only gets the benefit of the doubt for so long.....then it becomes game on.....and it's your choice how you participate.....

capiche?

The country has gone over the edge, I swear. Every other weather forecast has some kind of an emergency notice - from unhealthly air to heat index to wind chill, blah, blah blah. Every thunderstorm requires the entire family to hunker down in the bathtub and round the clock coverage. Every virus that comes around is an epidemic, pandemic, or emergency. Every news event requires a knee-jerk reaction to ban this or that or mandate this or that. Every meeting of congress or legislature at any level will result in misery, widespread hardship, or depression if they don't act immediately. Everyone that goes against conventional narrative is a racist, Nazi, or conspiracy theorist.
