You people are just trying to find some fault with what he said, when in fact there is none, if you look at it correctly.

He said "mother fucking perverted arab piece of shit."  The reason this looks incriminating is because it appears as if the word "arab" has been used as a derogetory term such as "perverted" and "motherfucking."  However, he did not intend it as such - only as a description of the person, instead of being intentionally offensive.  If Hunch had perhaps a different reputation - if he was known for being racist, or had made some racist comments about Arabs in the past (which he has not, to my knowledge) - then perhaps I would agree and say he was being rascist.  When the police ask him, "What did the man look like?", would it be racist to say "He was Arabian" ?  Hunch is not degrading Arabs.  He is expressing his intense dislike for one man.

Note that he did not say "arabs," nor did he mention the man's race later in the post.  Rather he focused on wanting to hurt the man and his anger toward what happened, instead of the man's ethnicity, which never came into play again.

He is not wanting to kill the man for being an Arab - he wans to kill him because the man attacked his sister.  Please use your brains and learn to differentiate between the two.

Oh, and by the way, FBG:

and that's just as nasty as what happened to your sister.


Grow up.  Saying racism is as bad as rape is like saying the flu is as bad as pancreatic cancer.

What if Hunchback had said a piece of shit nigger had tried to rape his sister?


And jihad:  The word "nigger" is inherently offensive, whereas "arab" is accepted with the same degree of politeness as "white" or "Asian."
