    can you remove the expectation of cultural meaning from a word when you broadcast it into cultures ?

    it is a bit of an oxymoron philosophical construct in some perceptions.

    however
    what do most white people easily associate with ?
    child abuse ?

    so making a joke about being an abused child ...

    is that out of sync with the cultural norm ?
    is it seen as culturally offensive ?
    or is the nature of the abused victim defined as being wholly separate to a sense of culture ?

    while i agree ideally with both bells & Bowser in that there is an explicit need to be immune to word triggers.
    a sense of projected culture(playing dumb and pretending that culture is not culture is a good way to install separatism and play the apologist for ethnic cleansing) is still an act of oppression

    no different to beating a child in the middle of a high street or threatening to beat them.
    the over all sense of oppression that is projected has psychological effects.

    if it were not ... why is there no billboards in the usa advertising communism ?

    because '?' = culture ?
    = morality ?
    = what ?

    how is it related to carrying fire arms around in public in the usa ?
    open carry laws ?
    concealed carry laws ?

    what is the cultural narrative that normalises a sense of immunity from aggressive acts ?

    notice how some politicians are calling any criticism to be named as "hate speech" and "terrorism/treason"

    survival of the fittest does not share ideological food or money with competitors

    I took this in context of the fact that in those times being a "house nigger" was a status symbol. Therein lies the irony, IMO.
    Hardly prejudicial behavior.
