Oh No They Didn't!:Defining the Opportunistic Racist

"Limbaugh says he can use n-word now, because Rachel Jeantel did"
Oh No He Didn't!

An opportunistic racist is an individual who uses racist remarks for their shock value, for personal gain. So these individuals do not really care what damage they do, their aim is to cash in on the hatred people have for any given group of people to are traditionally marginalized. In Limbaugh's case, when he feels radio ratings sagging, he immediately looks at a current event and tries to gain viewer support by enraging a targeted group, in this case the Black community, which is already highly upset about the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case. There is a historic disregard for the idea that he is instilling hate and enabling hate-speech as a lifestyle in people who believe he is right and see his tactics as permission to assault and insult minorities in general and African Americans in particular.

 I know you up your ratings by being as insulting as possible, you sad little man. Have you received sufficient "hits" on your audio? You won't be getting one from me. I'll be writing your sponsors. Also, uh No. You don't get to use that word. Ever. Spell it anyway you like. That word out of your mouth, regardless of the target is an expletive. And your excuse is a Black woman used it so you, a white man can. Fail. When you use that word you do it specifically to insult, and curse minorities. So just:
STOP! This means YOU
