Why is it that a white man can't say boy especially on National TV and a Black man can say boy to a white man. I have no problem with the term boy to a young teen who has yet to reach manhood but when a white man says boy about a black adult he usually gets fired or the fans go into an uproar over this usage of the term. Today on the show Numbers Never lie Mr Smith said to another debater that his "boy" Mr Stern the commissioner of basketball. Now not only did he say it so all could hear but he said it in a way to demean the comish. I know if a white guy giving this argument and with such gusto had said it, the white guy would be dismissed. Is this term boy only allowed to be used by a black man in his arguments?
