I love when people preface whatever it is they are about to say with

"I'm not a racist, but....."

You can be sure that whatever they say after that....is racist.

I feel like a hypocrite talking to Atlantic and their racist friend.

I feel that racist is just another label applied lazily by those who wish to shut down a debate.

I'm not racist...I have quite a few friends who happen to be wogs.

My bff is Mexican, so I can say blatently racist stuff and not be racist, rite?
 
2013-04-09 06:14:19 PM  
What about people that come into Fark threads and start calling people racist when they don't take the side of the minority, what kind of racist is that?
 
2013-04-09 06:14:54 PM  
An article about racists that only has pictures of white people?

That statement is racist.

/also, you're a hipster. A Racist hipster. And Hitler. A Racist Hipster Hitler.

I find that what they say is generally true... but taken as racist by some people. People who are often racist themselves.

Meh, it's usually stereotypical. One can say that asians are good at math without thinking asians have a genetic predisposition towards being good at math.

Stuff like that are usually comments/observations on culture rather than race.

/when the speaker deserves the benefit of the doubt, of course

I like the libs who convert any critical adjective into a racist code word.

I'm a rascist. Can't be helped. I notice that people are diffrent than me, and I make jokes about it. I also prefer sex with people of a different color than me. It is what it is.

Yup. And stereotypes didn't become stereotypes by being completely wrong.

Racism??? Pshhh that is so 60s, late 70s/early 80s at best.

It's all about classism now people, get with the program.

Wealthy Man > Wealthy Man's Mistress > Wealthy Man's Assistant/Butler > Wealthy Man's Accountant > Wealthy Man's Lawyers > Wealthy Man's Wife and Kids > Wealthy Woman > Wealthy Woman's Divorce Lawyer > Wealthy Woman's Diamond vibrator bought using alimony > Rich People > 99%ers > People who pretend to be homeless and make more money than people with Bachelor Degrees.

The problem with stereotypes is that they quite often hold a good deal of water.

This rascism of yours sounds different compared to racism

Where do I sign up?

horrible song.

whatever happened to good coontry lyrics about drinking, cheating, and farking blood relatives?

I think that a lot of people are more classist than racist, without realizing it.

More people will "act offended" by this stupid song, then they would if they listened to some awful rap song that mentioned the -N word- fifty billions times. Go figure...

"Didn't" is past tense. Learn English if you want to live here.

They went with Alt-Country (REAL country), which you'll never hear on FM radio, the land of soccer mom pandering, AMERICA, FARK YEAH, Jesus is keen Pop Country.

What if people did this in reverse?  Like a KKK member goes:

"Now, I'm a racist.  But Beyonce really did have one of the best music videos of all time.  We've got to give her that."

Ah so the solution to racism is to ignore depictions of stereotypes and symbols of racism.  It was so easy.  Truly a mind of your caliber only comes a long once in a generation.

Maybe if they figured out their mask problem first.

You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human farking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shiat! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on n*ggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless.
