And I stand by what I said in regards to the person who wrote that letter in relation to her, they are a dumbass and ignorant, there is no need to write something like that, ever.
I couldn't agree with you more.

Exactly.

That letter is abhorrent and the person who composed it is horrible but let's make this thread about that rather than baiting and harassing a harmless posster

Re: Jemelle Hill ESPN commentator twittered racist tweet

I'd guess she better than him (or possibly even her) and certainly better than he writes. He can't even keep up with simple subject-verb agreements and uses the word "outta." What a d*ck. I didn't realise the whole letter would be so disgusting.

Does anyone know if the letter was signed?

So, does everyone find the usage of the word 'gorilla' to be the worst used in the letter? I found 'spear-chucker' to be the most appalling myself.

Also, does anyone know what 'jungle bunny' means? I think I may have heard that before but I don't really get it.

It's not that "gorilla" is worse it's that Dominic called Serena a "gorilla" and he and his posse argued that "gorilla" wasn't racist and that we were always playing the race card. Perhaps this anonymous letter can be a teaching lesson for those that want to learn.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

They are all lost souls. Thankfully this is just the internet, and we will never have to encounter them in real life.
The best approach is just to let them live in their ignorance and gross stupidity.

Ohhhh, I thought that because you put it in the thread title that it must've been the worst example.

Do you know what "jungle bunny" means?

I often use the word "outta", it's part of the Chicagoan dialect (like leaving the "g" off of words ending in "ing"), though I also know when not to use it.

For me none of them are any worse than the other, as they all carried the same intent(slander by use of racial slurs.)

Thank you!

That's a weird term. I think I have heard it before but I wasn't really familiar with it. I would've thought that it would moreso refer to women but it seems like the opposite may be true. Some of those definitions are offensive in themselves though. They seem almost intentionally provocative. It's a weird one for me because the use of the word "jungle" is so apparently offensive and brings up all kinds of negative connotations but the word "bunny" seems so innocuous. It's like an oxymoron.


Exactly, but I'm sure to him "outta" and incorrect subject-verb agreements are perfectly acceptable (even in a letter of complaint) because he's white (well, I assume that "he" is "white")

Some of us saw what you posted Friday night that was so bad it had to be deleted with no record, and all comments on it deleted with no record, so you can spare us your usual bs. Want to repost it so I can put it in my signature like you always do?

So how many posters here do you stalk and regularly harangue yourself? And are they all black?
