2: Yes. They would stop him by protesting and boycotting, so AGAIN, how would you feel about that? If there was a Michael Richards type uproar, would you see those white people as whiney or strong and united? Please have a little decency and just answer the question.
3: Most white people weren't offended by Michael Richards...were you?
4: You see no one up in arms because I'm giving you a hypothetical. You can't be stupid enough to not understand that.

Oh, and by the way, I'm positive at least one black person paid to go see Michael Richards. Conan is free, so Snoop said that for zero payment.

1: I'll give you a hint. Conan tickets are free.
2: So you wouldn't say they're whiney and entitled? Goes against most of your posting, but I'll take your word.
3: Yeah, but people paid to see him. They paid to hear him talk. No one paid to see Snoop on Conan and no one has ever paid to hear him talk. Either you're okay with it because "it's his job" (as you say with black racists) or you're offended at what's said (as you are with white racists). Giving the two different races two different standards is, in itself, incredibly racist and it's exactly what you're doing.
4: Then why did I have to ask 3 times and explain that it was a hypothetical question? If you understood, you'd have just answered.

I, personally am not offended at all by Snoop Dogg's comments, let alone most things that are said here and there... I was just getting at why comments like this are not "racial"? I am just saying the outcome would have been different if a white person makes remarks like that. It's not a big deal- but that is my point... it WOULD BE a big deal if the opposite was said.... and I just dont' get that.Sorry... "Lower than ebay" makes no sense when 1 card went for $4 and the rest go for $30+

If "whitey" refers to the media who fan the flames for ratings, then I agree.
If "whitey" refers to white people, then I vehemently disagree.
I just want to see actual equality. Racism against non-whites does still exist, no argument there. But to use that as an excuse to be racist against whites is small-minded. People like Chris Rock and Snoop Dogg (both of whom I am a fan) are seen as strong and outspoken for the things they say, not as racists. Yet if a white man were to say even half of that about blacks he'd have to leave the country for his own safety...and you have the nerve to blame white people.
The reason I am a fan of both those guys is they say what they say with a point behind it. I, and many other white people understand that, get it and enjoy it.
There's one bit by Rock where he says "honkey" and "cracker" about two dozen times in less than a minute. I think it's hilarious because his bit is actually about how the most racist people he knows are old black men.
Reverse it and have a white guy repeating the N word that much talking about old racist white men. I bet very few black people would bother with his point and call him a racist just for using the word. That's honestly based on everything I've seen up to this point.
