lasercannon: ApeShaft: 150 people just died - but it's ok to joke about it because they were from Africa.

No, it's okay to joke about them because they were black.


Confused! Thought the article said 150 dead Nigers in Africa.

redsquid: Guess what- Africans don't need you to stick up for them. They are big boys and they can fight their own battles. If certain people spent more time worrying about the people who live within 10 miles of them and less time flapping their lips about Tibet, Africa, and all the other poor brown folks all over the world America would be something to be proud of. I know it's much easier to slap a sticker on your hybrid, send a fiver through paypal, and bore your friends to death vomiting up some factoids from NPR about the oppressed indigenous blahblahblah, but getting your own house in order and living the example is a much more positive step. It's also much harder and can't be expressed in a pithy catch phrases. Nobody wants to be involved in anything that takes more than three words to explain.

Just do what the rest of us have done. Ignore him. He's a pathetic concern troll.

Is it your first day here? We laugh at just about everyone's death. fark your silly PC feelings.

How many jokes were in the Canada mall shooting topic yesterday?

Little to none

Yeah but Canadians aren't funny

Aren't funny, strange or aren't funny, ha ha?

They are funny strange. Just not funny ha ha. Except for Mike Meyers. And Weird AL. Yep, that's about it.


Weird Al is a dirty Canuck?.

How do you know they were black? Could have been a UN delegation from Sweden


I looked up the airline on Wikipedia and it only serves Nigerian destinations, so the chances of Swedes would be extremely slim.

Honestly if it had been Sierra Leon or the Congo, there would probably be few to no jokes. But Nigeria has made itself into a running joke on the international stage by condoning and even encouraging a widespread global practice of deceit and fraud emanating from its internet cafes.

So no, it's not because "those people are far away and black".

Observation: Comments from many new liters and old trolls, poking fun at event. Evaluation: sarcastic humor, in which case I'll gladly join in; racism, in which case I'm outta here. Postulate: Because Nigerian citizens are unimportant, their deaths can be overlooked. Correct, y/n?

/Sarcasm: If the U.S. had Africa's spending budget for aircraft, the military would be staging Zeppelin wars and private sector flight would be feathers and super glue.

0MGWTFBBQ: Hello,

I am Barr. Phillip Butulezi, an attorney of law to a deceased Immigrant property Magnate, who was based in the U.K, also referred to as my client.

On the 25th of July 2000Yesterday, my client, his wife, and their two Children died in the Air France concord plane crash bound for New York plane crash earlier today. They were on their way to a world cruise.

Prior to that accident and since then, I have been managing Mr Schoeler's properties here in the U.K. Some of these properties, at the time of the accident, were already put on sale. I, as his attorney, monitored the sale of the properties, and the depositing of the proceeds into Mr Schoeler's main U.K bank account. I have contacted you initially to assist me in repatriating the money, and possibly ownership of some of the property left behind by my client; this is to prevent ownership of both reverting to the state. By U.K law, ownership of funds in current bank accounts unattended for six years will automatically revert back to her majesty's government treasury. However, the legal procedure to activate this takes about three months, of which there are just about two months left.

The bank has recently issued me a notice to provide details of any of Mr Schoeler's next of kin within a short period of time, this thereby triggers off the procedure of reverting ownership of the funds to her majesty's government. My Late client's main Uk bank account is valued at fifteen million, five hundred thousand U.S dollars ($15.5m). Since I have been unsuccessful in locating any relatives of my late client in the last six years; and with the bank indicating that they now wish to shortly start the procedure of reversion of ownership of the funds to the state, I now seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. And then you in turn can send me my share of the money. The ratio for the sharing of the funds will be fifty per cent (50%) to me, for ...

The joke I cited pre-dates 419 fraud by about a decade.
I still think it's about proximity and it's ok to consider that.
It won't make you a bad person.

Well, not as much as shrugging off death because some fraction of that population engages in fraud.
