Heat fan gets kicked out of game for being racist by calling Russell Westbrook “boy”

If you know the history behind white men calling black men “BOY” then you know why black men today don’t like being called that and why it’s viewed as racist.

If you don’t know then you should probably sit this one out.

OP, fuck off, BOY.

He needs to avoid Cork in Ireland. Every sentence directed to a man, regardless of age, finishes with 'boy'.

R2 that is Ireland. This is America. American History has nothing to do with Ireland.

R1 A. You sound stupid.

B. I’m not even black.

You’re a fool.

by Anonymousreply 4February 10, 2024 5:45 PM

Indeed not, R3. But saying boy to a Black man is likely to elicit the response of OP's story anywhere. I've witnessed it once in the UK.

So many of the overseers in the early days of slavery were of Irish descent that maybe there IS a connection…

I have no problem with it as long as they will also throw black fans out for calling a white player cracker, whitey, honky, etc.

by Anonymousreply 7February 10, 2024 6:00 PM

This an instance when a GOOD ass whoopin' is justified.

Fuck-face is fortunate that "Boy" was at work & wasn't interested in fucking up ĥis money, reputation, or the game.

R6 totally made up and completely incorrect. You pulled that one right out of your ass!

by Anonymousreply 9February 10, 2024 6:14 PM

Fuck off r9. I think the connection is there. And I am black before you ask.

The “boy” remark was . . . ill-advised.

Not R6 here R9, but some comment on Irish overseers, but can't imagine there were that many?

The Irish were not the ones here owning slaves. The Irish themselves were not here. Very few Irish people were in the USA at that time.

by Anonymousreply 14February 10, 2024 6:24 PM

R6 isn't wrong, though, R9.

At that point in history, Irish were treated like dirt in America. However, they did make their way into the American south, and did work as "paid security", aka plantation overseers, jail wardens and bounty hunters tracking down and recovering/kidnapping runaway slaves, especially in the American northeast.

Eventually, they (the Irish bounty hunters and paid security) organized, which led to police forces, and eventually, police unions.

This all well known American history, and not some conspiracy theory.

Anyone who calls a Black man ‘boy’ deserves whatever he gets.

It's the kind of thing I might say to any guy if I was popping off because I forget that it's racially coded and not just interpreted as a general term of disrespect like bitch or pussy.

In this day, to have that word in your weaponry of insults, for a guy his age. Why he felt the compulsion to bring race into it. Very telling of his character.

Really, r23? Calling any man “boy” has never been part of my repertoire.

R15 you are inventing bullshit. Most Irish catholics came to US after the civil war and they lived in industrial cities on the North east.

Cathilics were consider inferior and after blacks and Jews they were the least revered group by KKK.

There might have been some protestants from Ireland that were slave owners, but they were not ethnic Irish, they were British settlers in Ireland.

by Anonymousreply 30February 10, 2024 7:17 PM

As for the black queen at R10, Irish were not slave owners, but you know whose great grandfather was slave owner or foreman on plantation? Yours.I am not being mean it is just the fact. Most white Americans are not related to slave owners, only some wealthy families. But most black people are. So, all this anti white hatred is stupid snd irational. You are hating innocent people for something your own flesh and blood have done.

R30 he’s 100% just making shit up without knowing. Like I said upthread, the Irish weren’t even here during slavery. They came post civil war.

I'm not R30, but can't you guys do a simple google search, R34?

"The Northern states remained loyal to the United States government, which was led by President Abraham Lincoln. Seven Union generals were Irish-born while an estimated 150,000 Irish-Americans fought for the Union during the war."

by Anonymousreply 35February 10, 2024 7:57 PM

"Irish-American Catholics served on both sides of the American Civil War (1861–1865) as officers, volunteers and draftees. Immigration due to the Irish Great Famine (1845–1852) had provided many thousands of men as potential recruits although issues of race, religion, pacifism and personal allegiance created some resistance to service."

The South had way more Protestant Irish and Scotch Irish.

R38 sorry to break your illusions, but Scarlett O' Hara is a fictional character. So is Santa Clause.

by Anonymousreply 40February 10, 2024 9:41 PM

Yeah, you really sound like a great judge of character, R37. Assholes like you are the real temperamental drama queens. Its much easier to just bitch and post racist comments about other groups of people than accept your own misery and ignorance.

What a fragile ego to be debased by a stranger calling you boy. Some black men need to grow a set and be a little more resilient.

R45 or white men can stop with the micro aggressions and throwing out words in a way that implies a lot.

Imagine the entitlement, or stupidity to hurl out than insult in a huge crowd of onlookers.

by Anonymousreply 48February 10, 2024 11:48 PM

I wouldn't even call it a microaggression. It was deliberate aggression, and it's clear from the way he deployed it that he was fully aware of what he was doing by using that word.
