    I'm happy as hell. I hope it divides their locker room the entire season.

      All I have too say about this is when you hang out with black folks and hear them say that word constantly you will find yourself saying it without noticing it. I know I'm guilty, and I am not racist.

        I'm 100% Greek. I don't understand the triumphs of my ancient ancestors, or the enslavement by the Turks any more than you would.
        You're kidding right? I'm not taking sides with the issue of using the N word however you can't possibly compare your perspective on being Greek with the plight of modern day blacks. When you speak of the triumphs of your ancient ancestors I suspect you are speaking of people that existed thousands of years ago. You are correct in asserting that you can't possibly relate to their triumphs however it's completely untrue that modern day blacks can't understand centuries of savagery and continued oppression. Blacks were marginalized legally in this country in the last 50 years!!! Remember the civil rights movement? What do you think those marches on Washington were all about parking spaces??? Blacks continue to be disenfranchised and diminished by societal perspectives plain and simple. This is a football message board and I really don't want to get into theologies and politics of this issue however I couldn't let this statement go unchallenged.

          Because they continue to be oppressed to this day.

            That still doesn't make it right....and, as I have stated more than once already, YOU don't get to decide that it's ok to do so.

            How about when you're "hanging out with black folks" you say exactly what Cooper said and see if that's ok with them?

              What statement are you letting go unchallenged? I'm asking questions here.

                    He was pretty clear in his statements.

                      Right...

                      So let me ask, is the "oppression" they face to day even remotely comparable to that of the past?

                        Right, but he was referring to statements that I didn't make. Unless he takes issue with me being Greek.

                          That depends.....are you comparing NOW to slavery or just oppression in general? Born into poverty with no real means to get themselves out of it, profiling, gerrymandering. Young black men and children are murdered on the streets every day, but get no real justice because they're not white.

                            C'mon. You're comparing your heritige to black people of today. It's an asinine comparison and he called you out for it. You're not being oppressed today because you're Greek.

                              He's scum playing for a scum team in a scum city.
                              you talking about Vick or Cooper???
                              I assume Vick

                                Vick. I was quoting someone who was talking about Vick. Although I don't hold too much in my heart for Cooper either.
