I think you hit it on the head with the "uneducated" classification.
Those with limited vocabularies use racial slurs in derogatory manner not because they are homophobic (well, some are) but because they lack the knowledge of a more appropriate word. Your example is the perfect representation of this.
Okay, I'll stop now and leave time for replies. Just getting some thoughts down and seeing where they go.

All I can comment on this is this: You cannot Legislate Morality within reason.
It is the attempt to find the unreasonable that is the end effect of Legislative bodies and government in general.
It may not be 100% intended, but in my opinion this is what happens.
When something is unreasonable, as in Murder or Theft, you get hauled in or fined or whatever depending on the severity of the unreasonable action.
do something unreasonable, they get ejected, impeached, sued or what have you depending on the severity of their
actions, position and times. Position, usually meaning job, and Times meaning: The politics and issues of the populace at that time.
There are many more factors of course, but I attempt brevity here.
Good, thought provoking opinion, Sam.
I cuss all the fucking time because I grew up poor and that's what everyone else did, so that's how I learned to talk. I think just explaining it away as behavior of the uneducated is accepting too easy of an answer. It's more like a dialect or accent than indicative of intelligence. It's simply speaking like the people you grew up around spoke, which is exactly how everyone else learned how to speak.
What I mean is don't think 'that person says fuck a lot, they must be dumb.' Think 'they probably grew up poor.'
To all of the left leaning shizzies hating on the right's intolerance: you need to seriously examine your own side. Leftist racism is much more effective and insidious than that of the right, because the right is really blatant and bad at being racist.
So people who could never normally say what they want, now all of the sudden can, so they do, and they're nerd raging assholes about it. It's like if the worst employee at the store suddenly became the boss - he'd be fucking insane to everyone, just like he always wanted.
Overall, I think society is balkanizing. We're being split up into smaller and smaller interest groups against each other, and it's not going to end well for anyone.
Yeah, cussing, woo. Learned it from a "Poor Town" too. I do Phono-linguistic acrobatics just to avoid cussing as much as possible.
I don't know about the racism, I do my best not to be and 9 times out of 10 people I meet don't care, or are racist purely from bad experiences.
I have had "bad experiences" with racist black people, and I really don't care; those were stupid kids. I've met many a decent person that wasn't white before and since the experience.
Insano-boss situation, check. Hopefully we start to evolve away from such childish behaviors through the learning processes, myself even being guilty of it at one point or in a way or three.
I can't say for sure that it "won't end well for anyone", it always ends well for at least someone
in at least
one way. Even if indeed we are Balkanizing.
They have really awesome cigarettes or so It's advertised on an old tin I saw.
Don't smoke cigs though.
I just found this thread so I am going to paste what I said in 1160:
For real, dude.
I really not sure what make you think slurs and appreciate board.
I was drunk.
And Really Really Drunk. I had had a little bit to drink.
And I was Really Horny.
I just got that part of your song stuck in my head, reading that post.
I apologize man.
Crazy Sh-stuff, hope your deltoids healed up well, I empathize the sentiment as well.
And my apology Weener, for desensitizing your post.
