We have to take two things into consideration:
1) The history of the US
2) The fact that blacks are a minority.
1) Looking back on the years of Negro lynching and ardent hatred, I think its safe to say that white america needs to STFU when whining about blacks slurring whites.
2) Blacks are a minority. 'nuff said. Not saying that this justifies their attitude, but you've got to take it into consideration.
I hate to do this, but I've gotta disagree. I see no reason to take either one of those points into consideration when dealing with the use of racial slurs and shit. Either they're against racism or they're not. I know I didn't lynch any negros and I've got no control over the population spread. It'd be impossible for any minority to justify being racists to whites, yet still claim that racism is wrong. Can't have special treatment and equality. It's one or the other.
