Thread: Is this racist?

  1. #1

    Surprised/Amazed

    Serious question here, l know this is the lounge, but l'm sure you can rise to the occassion.

    My first reaction was that it was racist, but it seems this sort of thing is OK in the US. So watch the animation and see what you think.

    i found it somewhat amusing but for you to even ask "is this racist", would imply that you have thought about it and came to the same conclusion that i have. Someone, somewhere will find it offensive.



    Now post some more of these mother fuckin' clips hoe

    I don't think it was racist. Maybe it could be argued that it is, but it wouldn't be high on my list of things to ban. Perhaps people may take offence because of the black stereotypes but I thought that the middle class white guy was made to look ridiculous because of the antiquated street speak, yo.

    It was about as funny as toothache too.

    You's be right, homie.


    The butt of the joke obviously is the pseudo street-smart white guy.
    And is "ghetto" a race?

    Its obviously ment as stygmatisd humor
    hence it is regarded as funny.

    nah, stereotypes are funny. I'm a cracker, that's funny. I used to get uncomfortable when stand up comedians would make jokes about people of another race, but stereotypes are funny and I got over it.
