Joelogon: cman: I understand why the cave man and thug pictures are racist, but can someone explain to a dumbass like me how having him as a witch doctor is racist? Honestly speaking, I really have no idea what a witch doctor is.

African witch doctor. Portrayed in pop culture as a stereotypical oogah-boogah, bone-in-nose "savage." (Similar in concept to head-shrinking cannibals, voodoo priests, etc.)

The Facebook page looks like it's now down, but here's what I'm guessing is the witch doctor photo (popped up a few years ago):

Waldo Pepper: Mad Mark: Mock26: What do you call a girl from Virginia who can run faster than her brothers?

A virgin!

That's racist!

the joke is

what is a virgin in West Virginia

a 10 year boy who can out run his Father and Uncle

Why do they only have sex education 4 days a week in West Virginia

the 5th day they have to use the truck for driver's ed


What did the 10 year old virgin from Arkansas {or Virginia, Alabama,etc} say before having sex?
"Get off me Pa, you're crushin' my cigarettes!"
Hey, i've heard 'em all. I live real close to Arkansas.
/my apologies to you Arkansas folks

Waldo Pepper: Madbassist1: Waldo Pepper: I don't know if it is as much racist or simply lazy weak humor. Once the man became President all gloves are off concerning his position and everything should be acceptable as long as you leave the family out of it.

Jesus when did Americans descend to this?? Respect the office, if nothing else, dickhead.

look leave your gay fantasies out of it.

markfara: Let's keep in mind that these are the same dumbasses who thought that the Onion's "Obama's 19-Year-Old Son Makes Rare Appearance At DNC" story was real, and demanded to know why the MSM wasn't covering it.

Fact: A significant percentage of today's Republican Party are is simply too stupid to engage in anything remotely resembling reasonable debate. About ANYTHING.

 

Sorry.

Leave untaken_name alone guys, because he's completely correct. If you just close your eyes and pretend racism doesn't exist it will magically go away.

I think the problem with portraying Obama as a chimp (you know, if it wasn't for the racism) is the fact that he just doesn't look like one the same way Bush did. I mean Bush had the expressions, the lips, etc. East comparison. But Obama just doesn't look like a chimp.

padraig: Oznog: Don't forget the monkey pics! BUSH you can compare to a monkey... but Obama, that's totally racist.

That's all in the context. For centuries, black people were portrayed are subhuman monkeys. So yes, this is racist when portraying a black guy, and not when portraying a white guy.

For crying out loud, how is that difficult to understand ?


Context is for socialists.

untaken_name: digistil: Both are in poor taste, but only one is racist. Please let us know if you truly don't understand why only one is racist.

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. If you continue to push the idea that only people of one race cannot be compared to monkeys, you are actually perpetuating the stereotype. This is why historical context is a bad basis for perpetuating ideas, because if the actions of people many years ago are still used as a basis for determining our actions today, then we have not progressed at all, only codified negative stereotypes into the public consciousness so deeply that they become ingrained. Should a small child, knowing nothing of history, make fun of a black child by comparing them to a monkey, they will be quickly corrected and told that we do not call black people monkeys because in the past they were compared to monkeys. This just perpetuates the idea. The only way to end racist stereotypes is to quit letting them be effective. This means ignoring racist idiots instead of bringing MORE attention to them and their ideas.


Spoken like a true racist.

It's only racist if you consider 100s of years of historical context.

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.


The real thoughtcrime is that they're still using the same damn pictures that have been floating around since Obama took office.

They'll probably discover the ones of the watermelons growing on the White House lawn or the Obama Bucks in mid-October.

Get ready for a few dozen replies containing what you'd find by typing "Obama witch doctor" into Google Image Search.

/spoiler alert: it's f*cking racist
