**warning, profanity and racial laden post**
Presidential candidate John McCain is not going to apologize or change his language in reference to the North Vietnamese prison guards who held him captive and tortured him during the Vietnam war.
The full story from which I pull my comments and quotes comes from San Fransisco Chronicle. (liberal slanted news paper? yeah likely)
The report adds a quote from Diane Chin the executive director of the San Francisco-based Chinese for Affirmative Action who would OBVIOUSLY be offended. Here is her quote:
``The use of a racist slur can't be acceptable for any national leader, regardless of his background,  For someone running for president not to recognize the power of words is a problem.''Well, not for nothin' but McCain has every right to call those prison guards 'gooks'. They TORTURED him for 5 YEARS. What do you think he will call them? BFF's (best friends forever)
- McCain is right not back pedal on his comments.
``If Sen. McCain had been captured by Nigerians, could he call those people `niggers' and think he wasn't going to offend everyone who is black?'' Akoi asked.McCain is only referring to his captors, not ALL Vietnamese and if it were Germans they are all Nazis, and Italians -pasta eating guineas. I guess what I am saying is that it's not a race issue, but an act issue.
Akoi's also makes a statment that, "we can all feel what he went though". How about if a bunch of Mexicans tortured Akoi for 5 years and we can check back on his feelings for burritos. I'm thinking McCain isn't a big fan of Pad Thai.
Shit, my wife made me watch Glitter and now I can barely look at Mariah Carey without breaking out into night sweats.
As I have already said, McCain shouldn't change his language. And he wont.
``Gook,'' he said, ``is the kindest appellation I can give.''
