I didn't think anyone here was being racist, of course not! Maybe I didn't take the 'hood rat' thing the right way...that's just one of those terms I take offense to. Doesn't always have much to do with the person saying them, but the words.



True, her spelling/grammar's not the best. This is just one of those things that doesn't bug me, I'm used to being around 13-year-olds typing the same way on other sites (No offense, OP!!!).

When I think of a hood rat, I think of a trashy ass white crack head. IDK why.

Really? You're going to pull the race card?



The name is ghetto. Has nothing to do with her race.

I do too, a lot of the times. Other times, as bad as this may seem, Hispanic and black. Mainly because I a lot of people I know do the same, and I sort of adopted that. No excuse for it though, I know.



That's what I was worried about for a minute, tbh...that I stereotyped a 'hood rat' as being 'black'. :(
It's just that so many people I know use this word that way...its probably why I take offense to the word, too.

What race card?
I didn't think anyone here was being racist.

Anyways, I didn't mean to sway the topic of this post from the name. My apologies if I had.

You said as an African American you understood that she took offense and that it happens a lot on this site. Don't retract your statement now.

I left two posts that explains why I took offense to the word. I understand my intertwining (sorry if that was misspelled) being African American with the word 'hood rat' was probably not the wisest choice of words or actions. But again, I don't think anyone here is racist. I'm probably mistaken, but I think the OP said that the person who said this was mixed or had a african American mother?



I probably am mistaken...but I still didn't see anyone here as being racist. I just took offense to some words that were used because of past experience.

Understandable, I can't really agree with the majority's opinion on the OP because I've only skimmed this thread. I've explained why I took the word 'hood rat' as I did, it didn't have much to do with anyone else here but past experience. I'll admit if it was my mistake, and apologize for that immediate assumption. I'm used to people using the word that way.



As for what people think of the OP; I may disagree but there's not really much that I can do about that. People will think what they want to think. So far the OP seems like a fine person to me :/

OP was the one being racist.



SHE'S the one who said she likes the name because she's black, and types like a moron because she's black, and all black people type lazy because they're black.
