Is Howard Stern a racist? NBC's "America's Got Talent" does not care. Is Howard Stern a racist? First, I am a fan of Howard Stern, but not a fan of the countless times he has used the "N" word to describe blacks. From my understanding, the context of how Howard Stern justifies his usage of the "N" word comes from highlighting how "them there racists" use the "N" word. But what about the hundreds if not thousand/s of times Howard Stern has used the "N" word for shock and comedy fodder. Instead of being shunned and disgraced for using that word, he's elevated, admired and paid an exuberant amount of money by NBC's "America's Got Talent." I don't get it. Why does he get a free pass to use that word? Free Pass? There is no free pass. While listening to an old Howard Stern clip the other day, Howard assumed a caller was black. When the caller told Howard he was white, Howard couldn't believe it. Howard seemed genuinely floored by it. Howard then used the "N" word in that conversation. From my recollection the caller didn't say or introduce anything to provoke Howard to use that word. I guess Howard thought it would be funny. Was Paula Dean being funny or did she have intent? Howard Stern's usage of the "N" word fuels and supports many in his fan base that secretly think that way. Just because you have slept with blacks, or have friends that are black, you can still be a cross burning racist at heart. When I hear non-blacks using that word I think part of their tongue should be cut off. For the second offense, cut the rest off. Many on the Howard Stern staff have also used the "N" word to describe blacks, whether it be through jokes, bits, etc. The buck stops with Howard Stern regarding all material released and used on HIS show. He approves all bits. What they say, he says. When I hear blacks use the "N" word I think of them as ignorant, Jay Z defended the use of the "N" word to Oprah by explaining how "they" turned it around as a form of endearment and how the "N" word to them now has a new meaning. BS. Sadly, Jay Z's narcissism can't allow him to truly get it. But hey, at least he's making millions and millions off the "N" word. From Oprah Winfrey: "I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree." By the way, Oprah Winfrey's statement about "millions" of blacks being lynched was factually incorrect. "According to information gleaned from the archives at the Tuskegee Institute, 4,743 were lynched between 1882 and 1968 — not the millions claimed by Winfrey. Of the 4,743 people lynched during that period, about one in four — 1,297 — were white." I'd bet there were thousands upon thousands more blacks that were secretly lynched. Lately I've been watching the television show Big Brother. The amount of racist comments that have been spoken on that show will no doubt inhibit some of the players futures in very negative ways. Possibly ruining their lives. But when Howard Stern does something to mimic, make fun of, or put down a non white group, it's somehow brushed off and his career still flourishes to extraordinary levels. Why is this? I call BS on intent. I was listening to this yesterday from the Howard Stern show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3kraFRw2os. The host of Big Brother, Julie Chen, recently spoke out about her childhood pain of being called "chink" and comments about her eyes. She also expressed her disdain about current Big Brother contestants making racist comments/jokes towards blacks, Asians and others. Direct quote from Julie Chen regarding racist comments by current BB house-guests. "Am I the only one who feels so enraged? "I think it shows us all that in 2013, race is still a deeply, deeply personal issue and it is so extremely hurtful. And unless you have ever been on the receiving issue end of it, you simply do not know what it's like to walk a mile in someone's shoes." But when Howard Stern makes racial jokes about blacks and Asians he gets a free pass. Paula Deen was recently outed as someone who uses that word and now her life is destroyed. Why does Howard Stern get a free pass to use that word? Once again I call BS on intent. Solution for all racists that want to covertly spew their hatred. You too can be just like Howard Stern. Step 1: Proclaim that you are not a racist. It's beyond imperative that you're convincing and confident. Practice this step at your local coffee shop, or next family get-together. Step 2: Throw out casual racist comments to your family, friends or business associates. Use flash cards if that helps. Step 3: If called out on your racist behavior, resort to step one. Proclaim that you previously informed them that you are not a racist. You must defuse them. Offer offended party a danish. Green tea works too. Once cooler heads prevail, you are back in the driver's seat. There is no right or wrong way to show your covert racism. This is a personal journey that only you can navigate. And like Howard Stern, if you're fully committed and follow the above steps, you too can MASTER covert racism. If someone posted audio of the probably 500 to 1000, if not many more times Howard Stern has used the "N" word on his show, I think it would be an interesting topic to dissect. Here's a clip of Howard Stern saying the "N" word 47 times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf1x8s1Pixw. Is Howard Stern highlighting "them there racists" or is he allowing others to proudly project what he truly feels about "them there blacks?" All of these well known ass clown idiots have either been caught on tape using the "N" word, or have an explanation for using it. Howard Stern, Eminem, Jennifer Lopez, Mel Gibson, Michael Richards, Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, Dog The Bounty Hunter, John Mayer, Kreayshawn, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Guns N Roses, Alex Baldwin, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Tim Allen. Tim Allen says it's all about intent. Virginia Senator George Allen may have used the word more than Howard Stern. But probably not.
