[QUOTE]In Response to Re: No need to say sorry. : May I ask you a question sir? Please do not be upset or angered but I ask you to think rationally and respond. Obviously you are intelligent, you read and write in a fan based forum, take pride in a team that you enjoy watching but yet you got angery over a word. Yes, no doubt it was meant as an insult, but there are over 2 thousand other words the other person could have used as an insult, would you have become this upset? I dont ask you this as a joke or as an insult, but if a fan insulted a chinese person, or latin person, or jewish person, or italian or french would you be angry? I ask this because I hear all kinds of foul mouth adjetives used at football players and everyone laughs, had the person been of black race would you have been upset, I doubt you would have? Were you angry because maybe the person using the N word was white? and if so would this be reverse discrimination due to that fact? And before you answer, yes I am black, I have been in the United States for 22 years now, I earned my degree in Law at Nambia (UNAM-University of Nambia) I find it unfortunate that the black race here in the United States becomes offended but only when the white race uses it. I thought by being black it gives me proud heritage, if you lived anywhere in Africa you would know that all who live in Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Cameroon, Angola, we all are refered to as nigerians, negro's, blacks, and nigers from nigeria. Only here in this country the United States has our own black raced begun to call us niggaaaa. So now I ask you why did you get so upset? It is a common word. If this man slapped you or tried to harm you I would see your reasoning, but for this I think you over reacted. But that is just an opinon. Thank you for your time.

With all due respect, if you don't get it, I seriously doubt anybody can educate you.
I will pose a question to you. What makes you think you have the right to impose your sensibilities on others? Who are you to decide what should and shouldn't enrage most people?
It is an outrage for a white person to call a black person a ni@@er
in anger. Especially in 2010.
Unlike you, most people do understand the power of that word. If you choose to use it you are asking for whatever you get. Not only that, you are exposing yourself as a hateful, ignorant, fool.
Granted the man probably has some mental issues to be behaving so outrageously. But he's lucky the Packers' player had enough self restraint to only throw his mouth piece at him. He is absolutely not owed an apology. If anything, he should be in jail.
And if the NFL forces the player to apologize to him, that will do some serious racial damage on many different levels. That's the last thing this country needs.
I think Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are both insane clowns. But this is a legitimate cause they should turn their attention to-unlike somuch of the pointless garbage they waste their time on.
Somebody needs to stand up for rights of this player. This is bigger than one man. And in no way shape or form should the player apologize to that degenerate psychotic fan.
