Shucking and jivin is just lying, clowning, etc. with a specific stigma attached to it commonly used by southern black ppl in the 1800s. The shucking and jiving comes from you pretending like you aint saying hateful **** like any other slave master.
I'm asking you what is wrong with using any of those kinds of sayings or lingo in this context? If the shoe fits.
uncle tom and shuck and jive ONLY mean cowtowing to white people
trying to say that a black persons racist mindset against whites is the same as a white persons racist mindset againt blacks IS NOT cowtowing to please white people
trying to compare the mindset and make them equivalent IS WRONG
I'm not making them equivalent. I'm asking if one is okay why is not the other?
Especially if he feels that fits for you?
if im racist against whites, then that would mean i want to see white people enslaved, not my own people so how is it uncle tom/shuck and jive
Did I say being racist against whites is the same thing as being an Uncle Tom?
I said what is wrong about saying someone has the same mindset as "massa kid", "massa colonel" if calling ppl uncle Tom's is okay?
edit: and what he orignally said was that "using the same mindset" makes me the same AS MY MASSA, AS IF WHITE PEOPLE ARE MY MASTER
Like I said this just seems like you're more mad at that then any other saying.
Is calling a black person an Uncle Tom not equally offensive?
So if you were called an Uncle Tom in a thread you'd take it easier than this?
