Those kids are pretty chubby. So, no, would not hit.

When you're that age you should be thin and fit, so when you're my age your thinnish and fittish. Which is better than fat and damn sticky...gross looking.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: I'm not racist. I have friends who are black. Also I think Clarence Thomas is remarkably well-spoken. And I even enjoy some black music, like that "Shake it Like A Polaroid" song and that Gnarls Barkley one. I would consider voting for someone like Obama, because, you know, he's doesn't act too black. There aren't any black people that live in my neighborhood, but as long as they weren't of that element--playing rap music and being in gangs and stealing--I wouldn't mind living next to a black person. And their food is good--I went to this restaurant in New Orleans that was owned by black people and it was just like going to a white restaurant.


Oh god. Can't. Stop. Laughing.

Are people so upset about this because it was meant to be malicious? If it wasn't dear God there are some uppity folks in this thread. Life's too short to be so angry over something that was just stupid and not malicious.

Vide Infra: The sad part is, even if they were not full-fleged "racist" people, the extent to which they are villified and demonized by people will, in all likelihood, make them become so.
===============================================

See, it's your fault for reacting so angrily when I offended you. If you had just taken it, then I would have eventually seen the error in my ways and I would grow to love and respect all people.

As another white person, I'd like to retract this white persons previous apology.
Now you see, this is why we have such discord within the white community.


As yet that same white person who had previously retracted the former white persons apology I'd like to retract the former retraction under the condition that the subsequent apology in no way associates any other white person or persons with the actions of those few white persons who decided to film said re-enactment.

Thank You

Mrs. Kravitz: What I can't figure out is why they thought this was even mildly funny, or whatever? And then why oh WHY in God's name would you post this on Facebook unless you were proud of this in some way and/or didn't even see the offensiveness of it? Like, "Look at me, I'm so edgy and funny." NOT.

FAIL.


Seriously.

Aw, c'mon. You Farkers making the remarks about how these kids got into college, etc. Fark, it's college. They are playing in mud (like mud football we used to do). For crissakes, those few Farkers who did attend college, you guys probably did worse shiat than this! Hell, I did.

To me, they were just screwing around having fun, started acting out a Jena 6, and you Farkers immediately label than racists and rednecks? What a bunch of hippocrits! What righteous lives you led while in school, huh?

Mouser: As a non-Louisianan American, I'd like to tell you Louisianans, black or white, to get your shiat together and quit living down to your stereotype. You're making the rest of us look bad.

Thanks for reminding me that, as a Louisianan American, that I'm supposed to be uneducated and racist.

I missed the memo. I'll stop being intelligent and stop liking races other than my own.

I'm not sure if anyone's ever visited somewhere other than a 100ft radius from their house or not, but racists live in all states and in all races.

Disturbing, but true. Although now I want Mexican people to dress up in Charlie Chan outfits making 'me Chinese' jokes. I want Hutu tribesmen to dress in lederhosen and goosestep around. I want Russian babushka grandmas to dress in flannel shirts and torn sweaters and emulate Northwestern Americans from 1990.

WTF
could these idiots be thinking?

YOu know when a group of white middle class children decide to do a blackface recreation of one of the most racially divisive issue in the news right now,and then are so proud of themselves for this witty bon mot that they decide to share it with the world; perhaps you can understand why there are those who believe that omnipresent institutional racism isn't exactly the historical artifact so many whites complacently assume it is.

==========================================

I actually agree with your statement a little more than my original response suggest. I think that a LOT of the currently wideneing gap between black and white people can be attributed to the Imus situation.

I said when it happened that there were white people with an agenda who would use it to rally others by claiming that it was "another" example of blacks creating an issue. There was too much made of it.

There are white people who are under the impression that black people have been getting handouts and equal rights since the late 60s. Although this is erroneous, it is their belief. This makes it easier to dismiss any black persons concerns regarding race.

Black people are not so much offended by something like this as we are concerned. These are college students. Adults by definition. They vote. By going to school they are putting themselves in the position to hire and fire people, or approve loans, serve on a jury or run for public office... At some point, these white kids will be in positions in society where their personal beliefs, their biases, and their prejudices may effect their decisions. Maybe this is how the prosecutor in the "Jena 6" case spent his free time in college. Many black people are not concerned with the actual acts, so much as what they suggest. If he'she's ignorant or hateful enough to do "this" to a black person what else is he'she capable of?

Then, there are some of you here who have NEVER posted the words, "yes, that is racist and ignorant."

They claim that they are not biased but they are incapable of calling anyone out on their bigotry. IMO, it is because of the incorrect assumption of equality.

tidal: fireclown: As a white person, I apologize for this dumbness.

Why do we as a race need to apologize for the idiocy of a few? Apologizing on their behalf somehow implies that we're associated with them. Just because I'm white doesn't mean I'm responsible. Just like all black people aren't responsible for my stolen bike.


Dude, you TOTALLY missed the meeting we held, we are all SO responsible, like, you don't even know!

kriegfusion: acting the jena 6 thing..not so smart. Putting on blackface...no worries. It's done by all sides now, so its ok.

You know...when I saw that movie (not actually sat and watched, but saw it had been made) I wondered how well the reverse of that movie would play out.

Take two white guys who dress up and act like black women. Make the plot that these guys want to get Section 8 housing and welfare, or even a less stereotype / racist plot - they want the extra Affirmative Action points for getting into college.

I don't think anyone would have a problem with that movie. Nope, not at all. All men are created equal.

Not to pick a fight, Dro, and I'll agree that it is ignorant as all hell, but how is it racist,exactly? Are you claiming that the wearing of "color" by a white person is racist per se?

No, no, no. Not this. I was making a point. See my Weeners for clarification:

Life is too short to worry about this kind of stuff. This doesn't even look malicious. Ignorant? Certainly.

Likewise, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

That's how you apologize, people!

DROxINxTHExWIND: I was making a point.

Your point was that there are some people here who will not admit something is racist (or at least improperly race-based) under any circumstances? If so, then I agree that there are people, both white and black, who refuse to see and/or try to excuse the reprehensible actions of the members of their own race.
