untaken_name:
If it's only racist when done by, for, or against persons of one race but not others, it's racist. Therefore, the very idea that comparing people to monkeys is only racist when it's done to members of a certain race is, itself, a racist idea because it requires you to differentiate between people based solely on race.


This is borderline unintelligible.

The racist has already established the differentiation in their own mind and demonstrated their beliefs through whatever racist expression is being condemned; that differentiation is what people are attacking.

/not complicated
//claims of "no you're the racist for calling a racist out" = ego-distonic racist.

untaken_name: Offensive, yes. Tasteless, yes. Should never have been posted, though? I don't think I can get behind that. It smacks too much of thoughtcrime. Besides, wouldn't you rather know who the racists are, rather than have to guess because they're not permitted to out themselves? I would.


Welcome to 2012. You can go to prison for quite a long time if it can be shown you thought along terroristy lines. Don't have to actually commit a crime.

Just ask this guy...

untaken_name: Likwit: Spoken like a true racist.

Let me add: Only on Fark would someone who treats everyone of all races the same be called racist by someone who decides how to treat people based on what race they are.


Context and history matter. People's feelings matter. A white person doesn't get to decide if a black person is hurt or shamed by a racist image. It's the same damn blindness of white people using native American stereotypes for sports mascots saying "we're honoring them" and ignoring the offense to the party being mocked (I'm talking to you "Chief Wahoo").

Some white people are so clueless... they're so damn self assured they get to decide what's racist and what not. Un-be-damn-lievable.

Bush was the one who disrespected his own office. Even Republicans know this. (Hint: How many times did he or Cheney speak at the RNC convention? For that matter, how many times was it acknowledged that either of them existed.)

is it possible to be a dickhead in a lighthearted manner? no worries. truly I'm not offended.

I respect the office regardless of who is in it but I have alway loved and still love political cartoons and I in that respect I find nothing should be off limits. I feel in love with Herblock Link in High School.

depmode98: "He said critics were playing 'the race card.' "

It's as if racists don't even know what the race card even means.


To them it means calling them out on their obvious racism... You're supposed to pretend racism doesn't exist, and let them just get away with it quietly...

Your argument completely dismisses a thousand years of history, politics, and junk science wherein black people were described as a distinct, subhuman species.

Depicting a black person as a monkey is a reference to this history, and is based solely in race.

Depicting a white person as a monkey is a personal insult based on that person's intelligence, appearance and mannerisms.

So, yeah, they are different.

I can honestly say that while Bush was in office, I refrained from making a single comment about the thousands of years he and his ancestors had suffered due to their race.

Yeah, the party's been getting their asses handed to them on everything lately. Damage control. Well, that, and basic decency. I don't know when being polite and decent became politically correct bullshiat, but apparently it is in Virginia.

If a criticism is based on actual fact, on policies that he supports or actions he has taken, then yes, any criticism is acceptable. If it's based on delusions and lies it is not, and if those delusions are of a racist nature, well, you may be a racist.

That attack is, indeed, deplorable. However, what source do you have that indicates that attack was "from the Left"?

Also, keep the office for which she is running in perspective. It received plenty of local news coverage...like the page you linked to, for example...but she's running for Congress, not the Presidency....

"These kinds of images have no place in political discourse - period," said Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. "They are offensive, tasteless and should never have been posted anywhere, let alone a local unit's Facebook page. The Republican Party of Virginia condemns this sort of imagery in the strongest possible terms. I am in the process of contacting our Mecklenburg County unit to inform them that this is unacceptable behavior from any local unit associated with our party."

You're doing it right.


R. Wallace "Wally" Hudson, chairman of the committee, was surprised to hear from a reporter that anyone had taken offense. "If that group is that sensitive, I'm sorry, they're just not human," he said, chuckling. "It's not American. If they've got a problem with it, we're not going to change what we do."

You're doing it oh so wrong.

Since she was just as well received as Condi Rice was at the RNC I'd take a guess that it was the Left that launched those attacks along with the ones immediately after her speech.

And why is it OK to assume that any racial attack on a Dem comes from a Repub but the reverse is not true when a Repub gets attacked? If it works one way shouldn't it work the other?
You can't tell me the Left doesn't have plenty of racists just like the Right does.
