Can a black person call another black person a black bastard ?
Yes a black guy can call another black person a black bastard.
I could call one a black bastard.
I think what you are eluding to is would it be acceptable and would it be racist?
Well this is an interesting point.
When relating to black on black, it would depend on the spirit of the comment. It might be a friendly bit of banter or it could be an insult. I very much doubt an accusation this was racist would be taken seriously.
If I said this I would likely get a punch and or the book thrown at me.
Interestingly there was a case I brought to the forum.
The case involves two 10-year-old white boys.
One lad had the surname Brown.
The other lad called him a chocolate brownie.
The lad got disciplined and put on a register for a racist comment.
So a white child can be racist when speaking to another white child when calling each other food names.
But it is doubtful adult blacks will be called racist.
Political correctness is nothing about being nice to each other, it is all about mind control and oppressing white people. The evidence supports this.

six gunIn answer to whether this is racist I think our recent history circa 1960's-80's and that on the continent today suggests that it is and specifically aimed at black people. This and throwing bananas at black players was commonplace at grounds back then. We have grown up quite a lot since then. It is a matter for debate whether this was driven by legislation or our innate ability to eventually settle down and get along with incomers. My personal view is that it is the latter.What has been exposed in this discussion is the skewed priorities of some people and the profoundly anti libertarian instincts of some when it comes to conduct which they find distasteful or offensive.
I actually did ask these questions and these were actually the answers. They were not my thoughts or "answers."
I sometimes find it useful to check whether I am totally off beam.
I am glad to say I have never witnessed any of this banana nonsense.
Those I asked were not football supporters, hence they had not heard about the Liverpool v Oldham incident.
They would not be aware of these banana incidents either.
I have a better perspective of this now.
Back in the 70's I witnessed a great deal of racism - and here I mean real racism. Nasty comment, Paki bashing, bullying, teasing and so on. There was significant group pressure to be racist. I have been criticised for not conforming.
These commonplace extremes are much less evident, although I still witness it occasionally with jokes which have a nasty edge to them.
Phil Gannon is a Muppet head. There is no-one on the forum denying this.
The arguments are whether or not the reaction of the State is measured or excessive.
Whether this and the media response to this incident is balanced with respect to other offences.
Whether the reaction of the media and State is equitable between all the racial groups in the country.
I would maintain that the reaction was excessive if a black or Asian guy were pounced upon and arrested.
