No need to pick on Barry. Almost everybody who apologizes for saying something racist or offensive does it by saying something racist or offensive. Often the "apology" is more insulting than the original statement.

By the way, what's that dumb pill-popping slut, Rush Limbaugh, up to lately?

Sorry. I mean to say that dumb pill-popping media whore.

Tada!

not as many people are as offended as you may think, subster. the bulk of the population of america doesn't give a rat's ass what Marion has to say, now or ever. he's a racist old coon supported by racist old coon enthusiasts. obviously the voters of WashDC don't give a damn the rest of the country points at them and laughs. shine on, Marion.

If you lived through the 70's and say, early 80's, polish or "polack" jokes were so common. You heard it on the playground and on TV.

Nonetheless, I have no idea why the Polish got stuck with the whole "dumb" stereotype.

A friend of mine told me that there was battle (WW2?) where the Polish army on horse back attacked a German tank brigade, and they lost of course. I don't have all the details, but it's something like that. So that act of desperation and bravery earned them the "dumb polack" stereotype.

No it is mostly because they are godamn savages.


Yes, it is easier to condemn them as subhuman instead of learning something.

The folks in Ward 8 who vote for Barry are just like the rural poor who vote Republican, even though it is really not in their best interests to do so. They aren't being smart, but they are hardly being "savages".

not aware that this crackhead was elected mayor of the entier city both before and after being caught smoking crack with a hooker on video and spending time in the federal pen for it? when he was elected after his crack conviction the city was so mismanaged that the city government basically went into receivership and the federal government had to take control of day to day operations. he turend the city's bonds into junk bonds. beyond being a reall asshole, he is a walking menace of incompetence.

The citizens aren't doing this to stick it to anybody, they are doing it because probably only the most inbred part of Appalachia could dream of rivaling this city for least intelligence quotient per capita.

Marion Barry was last elected to citywide office over a decade ago.

He runs strictly on pork for his ward, vague cynical allusions to a master "Plan" to drive poor blacks out of the city, and that embarrassment factor.

In other news, the mayor of the city that is the seat of power for the western world is a burned out, doddering, racist crackhead who would be quite comfortable in a 1961 ghetto beer joint, riffing on "cracker ass crackers." And that works out for Marion, 'cause DC is pretty much a "never quite got out of the '60s time warp" ghetto. Do we even pretend any of this "political leadership" horsesh*t is worth the powder to blow it to hell, anymore, and if so, why? Because who we say we are and how we act don't even hook up for a friday f*ck anymore.

Um, not really.

Marie Curie and Copernicus were Polish too. In any case, it's far more complicated than that and like all stupid racist stuff was just meant to disparage a group of people... Say, because you need to take over their land and use them up for labor (WWII) or because they're new immigrants you don't understand taking over an area you thought was yours and now you don't know what's what anymore and they're taking unskilled/labor jobs because they need to so they must be stupid (Midwest post WWII, England now).

He plays the victim card. He has a Ward convinced he was an innocent person set up by "the man". He makes it easier for those voters to avoid responsibility for the large portions of the area's problems that are absolutely the fault of the citizens.

A) He's a councilman for the poorest section of the city, not the Mayor (though our current mayor is crooked anyway
B) The city is NOT one big ghetto. It has changed enormously (for the better, by and large) in the last 10 years alone. Areas that were simply crack houses and hookers 15 years ago are now some of the nicest in the city. DC got a really bad (and deserved) rap in the 80's during the crack epidemic. But it's not like that anymore.

first off who gives a shiat if that was a decade ago or two decades ago when he was relected? does time absolve idiocy in your world?
the point is not long ago at all the entire city elected him after the crack and perjury charges at which point he proceeded to bring up a jackhammer to pound the rest of the city that still had it's head above the dirt. that's not sticking it to the man. that's the dumbest electorate in America in operation.

no region in america is less intelligent than dc. We know this because no one else keeps reelecting crack smoking, perjury-committing, functionally retarded and absolutely incompetent governmental managers that leave economic disasters in their wake. He drove the dc bonds to junk bund status. this isn't even debatable.

third there is nothing stupid about poor white people voting republican. the democrats sold the white working poor decades ago when they decided governmental penalties against white people for the sins for long dead white people they in many cases aren't even related to was a legitimate function of government. The democrats further betrayed the white working class by opening up the flood gates to low skilled immigration which continues to drive down working class male wages each and every year. that you can't recognize or don't care that democrats literally treat you as a second class citizen undeserving of the protection of the 14th amendment and value the future voting potential of foreigners over your ability to sell your labor for a reasonable price to the capitalists doesn't mean we are all so blinded by ridiculous ideology.

furthermore when people that might most benefit from the group of politicians that consistently say *let's have an even bigger party with other peoples money* that doesn't necessarily indicate a lack of intelligence, just a strong moral commitment to taking responsibility for their own lives. I realize how alien that idea is to you. You'll have to take my word for it that it exists.

"I WAS going to pay my rent this month, but Marion Barry got caught smoking crack, so I don't have to!" Is that what we say?

You all swear to GOD that black people are always looking to "leaders" for guidance. Allow me to help the clowns who keep parroting the same garbage in every Marion Barry thread. First, this is NOT like when poor people vote Republican because Marion Barry actually WAS working in the best interest of the people who voted for him. He wasn't popular because he smoked crack. He was popular because long before that, he made sure that every kid in DC who wanted one could get a summer job. Second, the "stupid" people in DC didn't go pull him out of a crack house to vote for him again. He was embraced because he came back with a story of redemption. He was fighting some of the same battles that MANY of our family members were dealing with. People could relate to him and they thought that his familiarity with their circumstances would make him a more effective advocate for them. That is not a difficult thing to understand.

45, Virginia. When I was going to high school the 'dumb Polack' jokes were common. Invariably, someone would get shocked and say "You know, 'Polack' is a derogatory term" and that's how you knew. Maybe it's a regional thing, but we learned it in high school.
