Would she have been justified in attacking you, dogmush?

Interesting question.  Perhaps.  What level of insult constitutes resorting to violence isn't always a hard line, and varies depending on the cultures and mores of both the speaker and the listener.  There's also the question of level of violence. 

I will say this:  Had she been so offended in that moment she had slapped me, I probably would have taken it, and I certainly would not have called the cops and cried about it.  I knowingly chose a word with a high shock value (in our little American white middle class sub-culture) in an attempt to make her leave.  I couldn't have been to aggrieved if it pushed her farther than I intended.  Which is not to say I would have let her beat me unconscious or shoot at me.  Proportionality exists.

In a less hypothetical situation:  While I was in college a female friend of mine turned down the advances of a man at an event.  Within my hearing he remarked "I'll just catch you alone and rape the *expletive deleted*it out of you then".  I beat his ass, on the spot, immediately, and to this day think it was the correct move.

From a legal standpoint, I probably committed assault.  Certainly he threatened someone, but it was at a nebulous point in the future, and not immanent, so defense laws wouldn't cover me.  But he learned a valuable lesson that there are things you don't say in polite society, and if you break those taboos, there can be consequences.

In another situation, several of the "protests" happening at colleges around the US right now are clearly Communist run. Like, they are painting the Hammer and Sickle on things and calling for a revolution to overthrow America.  There is ample evidence of what takes place in Communist revolutions from China, to Cambodia, to Latin American and African countries.  At some point, if these kids don't back away from the edge, we'll have to kill them.  I'm not going to die in a struggle session or on my knees in a Killing Field.  Should we let them start killing people?  How much violence should we let them engage in before we act? Or at some point are their words alone enough to warrant unleashing violence on them, either personally or through the proxy of State Agents?

YMMV, of course.  If you want to be a pacifict by all means.  I just disagree with you.

I must say I agree with you on that situation.  I commend you.  A realistic verbal threat could reasonably merit violence. 

Insults or rudeness?  No.

How dare you gender assume that the woman couldn't fend off a potential rapist.

How very sexist of you.

Biscuits and gravy....or something
He was obviously making a joke about their weight but when the majority of them just happened to be black of course it had to be about race.

Quote
A veteran Westchester County corrections sergeant is under investigation for a “racist and offensive” social media post ridiculing Georgia jail guards, officials told The Post.
Quote
A Westchester County black corrections officer group took even more umbrage, calling the post racist.

“The Westchester Correction Association strongly condemns the racist and offensive social media post shared by a Westchester Correction Sergeant,” the group said on Facebook.

“Sharing this post is not only unprofessional and inappropriate for any law enforcement supervisor as well as deeply racist and demeaning,” the group said. “To merely share such a post is offensive to this supervisor’s colleagues and co-workers.”

Apparently segregated graduations are a thing again and if you call them “affinity” celebrations and it's whites who are being excluded they're okay.

The way to bring these "affinity" ceremonies to a screeching halt - if anyone actually wants to - is for white students to cheer on and support them.  >:D

From reading the article it sounds like the affinity celebration is a supposed to be in addition to the actual graduation.  Does anybody know if the diverse students typically also attend the graduation?  This idea is new to me (new, as in I though separate but equal was long gone) so I don't know how it works out in practice.

Just look what happened on when Scott Adams said white people should stay away from black people. Half the internet lost their mind and Dilbert was canceled in less than a week.

Say that clack people should stay away from white people and you're stunning and brave. 

What was that city again that just won the lawsuit allowing the white side to separate from the rest and form their own city?

You see them in films like Will Smith’s “I, Robot” and Eve from “Wall-E.” Real-life examples include Honda’s Asimo, UBTECH’s Walker, Boston Dynamics’ Atlas, and even NASA’s Valkyrie robot. All made of shiny white material. And some real-life humanoid robots are modeled after white celebrities, such as Audrey Hepburn and Scarlett Johansson.

The reason for these shades of technological white may be racism, according to new research.
Quote
“The bias against black robots is a result of bias against African-Americans,” lead researcher Christoph Bartneck explained to The Next Web. He told CNN, “It is amazing to see how people who had no prior interaction with robots show racial bias towards them.”

I have, in a "trendy" spot near the college in downtown St. Petersburg, FL.  Basically the perfect storm of retired liberals and college students.  I was told that the Asian food truck I was in line for was enabling cultural appropriation.  (It seemed like she (the young prog) had been arguing with the proprietor of the truck and had now shifted to trying to shame the patrons.

It's one of the few times in my life I've dropped the hard C on a woman to her face.  She left, and I enjoyed some really good Singapore Mei Fun.

Because nothing says inclusivity better than excluding everyone who doesn't look like you and whose name doesn't sound like yours.

I can't wait for an all-white affinity celebration...

And the caterwauling and screeching it will kick off.

Actually, my high school graduation was an affinity celebration.

162 graduating students, 100% lily *expletive deleted*ing white. I don't think we even had any Asians in my graduating class. And most of us were heavily ethnically German because it was Central Pennsylvania.

AH MAH GERDS! WE WAS NAZIS!!!

When it comes to mechanical things you want them painted light colors. Troubleshooting leaks and working on stuff is a lot easier. I hate black painted engines and machines.

A white person filming a black man being arrested is racist because a black man, and woman, have different rights from a white boy. Then she kind of sort of defends the white police officers. Yeah, it's weird.

Quote
The arrest of a black man on a busy Chicago street sparked fury among onlookers after a black woman insisted a white man could not film it because her rights are 'different' to his.

The white blogger headed to the scene near North Wells Street on Wednesday afternoon after a police radio scanner tweeted about an off-duty officer being assaulted by a man in a Dodge Charger.

He pulled out his phone after finding three white officers arresting the dreadlocked driver who was not resisting, but found a different subject when a female onlooker demanded he stop filming and accused him of racism.

With the arresting officers looking on in bemusement, he told her he knew his rights and suggested that she should know hers.

'Oh, I know my rights, and my rights are different from yours,' she shot back. 'You want to know why? Because that's a black man, and you're a white boy.'

Explosive confrontation erupts on streets of Chicago as black woman accuses white man of racism for filming black man's arrest - and says her rights are 'different'
