Knee or nay? I can't watch the video, but if it's the former, that's all sorts of fucked up. If it's the later, it's technically correct, but probably not appropriate and certainly a bad idea.

Depends on the context, I suppose. It's use in the UNCF clearly isn't, but I've heard things like "Filthy _____" get thrown around that most certainly qualify as hate speech. Probably a word that is best avoided if possible.

It's more so upsetting watching people put him up there as a joke and out of spite. Because he used to be that "racist narcissistic ***hole." But now all of a sudden, lets hear him out. Its not about having a different point of view, its about the sambo, kool aid smiling, song of the south image.

How about you give enough respect to people regardless of race that you don't assume they haven't made their own decision and it isn't to vote Republican? You aren't owed their votes either, stop acting as if any one that votes for Democrats are simply "brainwashed".
