I'm confused: It IS or it IS NOT acceptable to say the word "Nigger"?

 Forgive me, but I am getting some very mixed messages from the political Left (where you will find most black Americans to be ensconced).

If you have been following the goings-on in the the capital city of Lansing, Michigan, you know that the Republican-controlled Michigan legislature and governor's office passed right-to-work legislation that prevents labor unions from requiring membership and forcibly taking dues (especially dues used for left-wing political activism) from union and non-union workers.

Needless to say, members of the unions in this dying Rust Belt state are not happy.  In protests outside the Michigan state capitol building, thousands of union thugs exhibited some absolutely nasty violence, including tearing down a tent owned by Americans For Prosperity (while the tent had women, children, and elderly people inside); sucker punching conservative comedian-reporter Steven Crowder; and destroying the hot dog cart of a vendor who was serving hot dogs to conservative counter-protesters.  Oh, the hot dog vendor is black, and these leftist Democrat/Obama-supporting union thugs (most of them white) called the vendor - Clint Tarver - a "nigger" and an "Uncle Tom."

So far, our black President has no comment about this execrable action by his white supporters.

Perhaps these union thugs are getting a pass for their racial slurs because perhaps they just saw an advanced screening of the new black revenge fantasy film Django Unchained.  Quentin Tarantino is a leftist in good standing with his Holllywood pals, so apparently he gets a pass.  Star of the movie Jamie Foxx was saying the other day on Saturday Night Live how much he enjoyed his role in this movie because he gets to "kill all the white people" in it.  Apparently, the movie's dialogue is peppered with the word "nigger" over 100 times.

Jamie Foxx was also calling our president "our Lord and Savior" not to long ago, also.  I wonder how he feels about his fellow [white] Obama supporters in Michigan calling one of his fellow black Americans a "nigger"?

So, bottom line is that I can't keep up.  If I declared myself to be a leftist Democrat and swore my support for President Obama, would that mean I can throw around the word "nigger" and not worry about it?  Not that I want to, but I have always been a sucker for the concept of consistency.

If you're a Democrat or a Liberal you can get away with - literally - murder. If you're a Republican or a Conservative, you can't even say hello without someone calling you a racist. The media lapdogs, of course, don't help.
