He is her blueprint for perfect — and she desperately wanted to become friends with him — but in the seven years since graduation, Hazel has lost track of Josh and his perfect bod. One night, Hazel decides to cut loose and go to a barbecue. Deeming themselves terminally un-datable due to their personality quirks, they decide to double date in tandem. An unexpected encounter leads to more, but when Hazel finds someone who might be interested in creating a life with her, will she ignore her attraction to Josh and go for it? The characters were annoying as heck. I kept wondering what was happening as I read. I usually adore this writing pair, but this was a swing and a miss for me. In fact she was so mannered and so affectated, so childlike, that it was almost beyond reason. She was a quirk, not a human being. Did you like her better?
Black people cannot be racist, and here’s why
The protestors did not frame their anger and inflammatory rhetoric in this way, though. But more than that: The spitting rage behind those words — the desire to follow through with a punch — is too often present. I have always known these words are used against me as an explicit reminder: No matter how confident, tough, self-assured, strong, or brave a woman is, these words still put her in her place.

After the game in which Kentucky shot 27 for 70 from the field, Rupp said “Hell, they just whipped us. That’s the story of the game. I hope to be back here again sometime. JPS Note – Although many writers have portrayed Rupp as downbeat immediately after the game [some have suggested that he didn’t shake hands with Texas Western coach Don Haskins, a claim which will be discussed in detail and debunked later in this article ], it is interesting to contrast that with an actual audio clip from an interview after the game.
In the audio, Rupp does appear concerned about the free throw differential later in his life, Rupp wondered why UK was called for so many fouls when they were playing a zone while Texas Western was playing an aggressive man-to-man but overall, he seems upbeat and even has the presence of mind to start talking about the upcoming summer, and joking with interviewer Claude Sullivan about helping him broadcast baseball games Sullivan was also an announcer for the Cincinnati Reds.
Beyond that, not everyone claimed Rupp was downbeat at all. Bob Ingram, sports editor of the El Paso Herald-Post described Rupp in an article after the game as “relaxed, agreeable, jovial and seemingly happy although just a few minutes before the Kentucky team he was reported to have more affection for than any of the teams he ever coached was beaten for the national title.
In the end, the administration at Kentucky did have to haul Rupp away from the coach’s seat. He never returned to the title game. He was 64 years old. He might never get that close again. He loved that team, ‘Rupp’s Runts.

I have had a spotless work record for 30 years and have been accused of using a racial slur. The two women did not appear to be offended at all but the African American gentleman was immediately offended. Most there are salaried so while it was technically a work day — we were technically not working and were in wineries and breweries all day.
I am not sure that this would in fact avoid the offensiveness, especially when one leaves out the explanatory qualifier in brackets, which is not strictly part of the content. At any rate, this analysis of the meaning of a slur is highly contentious and certainly not one I would agree with.

Archives At the start of the American Civil War in , “amalgamation” was the word of choice for describing cross-racial canoodling. Then, in , the word “miscegenation” came along. It was first used in a pamphlet published, supposedly, by abolitionists encouraging black and white people to get together and get procreating. The pamphlet praised diversity as one of America’s greatest strengths, and it suggested that the country’s triumphs were achieved not only by its “Anglo-Saxon progenitors, but from all the different nationalities.
The pamphlet was a hoax, put out by anti-war Democrats hoping to trick the public into believing that President Lincoln, who was running for re-election, had a secret plan to “solve America’s ‘race problem’ with a campaign of interracial sexual relations that would create a new ‘American race,"” as race studies scholar Philip Kadish puts it. In some ways, the “miscegenation” hoax didn’t work; Lincoln was re-elected, and slavery officially ended in But the term lived on as states passed anti-miscegenation laws barring interracial marriage, and “became the foundational justification for the Jim Crow segregation that followed,” writes Kadish.
While miscegenation is by no means considered a neutral word today, very few people know just how laden it is. Unpacking the history of these terms can help us better understand how Americans felt about racial mixing in the past — and to identify any lingering skittishness we may have inherited.
