Oh no I sure didn't but I was not going to call you that either. Someone might think it is raciest.


Well sometimes Rick is racie but I doubt he is the raciest. I posted a picture that got deleted once that probably makes me racier than him.

Sorry ken I couldn't resist. :evil:

I got your point. I was just ribbing you for your spelling :).

I don't really see how that saying is racist. That has nothing to do with race unless one believes that just by the simple use of the word black is racist but then that is preposterous. The funny thing is when I see that saying I see no person I see a pot and a pan and I see the saying for what it is. A metaphor not a slur in any such way. If that is how you use it then maybe one should look inside them selves.

For anyone who is having trouble with the metaphor, refresh yourself with this Ken quote.

This thread reminds me of the people that whine I don't want to see the PP section. :whistle:


I saw Ken's comment as though it was the Pot (a black pot, I may add) calling the kettle black (of which is also black in color).
This metaphor has been used for years and years, and I have never seen it use in a racist manner. That is not the intent behind it.

Perhaps this will help put us to ease the feelings regarding any remote chance that this metaphor could be confused with any form of a racist comment.



IOW.... the Ford would be calling the Chevy white, when in reality, both of them are white in color.......... Get it? :whistle:




........... hence the Pot calling the Kettle black metaphor.





I see no potential for the Pot calling the Kettle Black metaphor to be taken as though racist. It's just a color that happens to be black.
It would have the same meaning if the pot was Stainless Steel and the kettle was Stainless Steel.
The metaphor might read: the Pot calling the Kettle "shinny"......, but that's it.

(sheesh... I sure hope that this does not require any further explanation!) :whistle:



BTW, what is a raciest?
