Barricaded Gunman: Honestly, how can white people have a problem with Asians? The guys are generally pretty mellow and the women are awesome. I don't see the problem.


You've clearly never left an open Coke can around one.

Filipinos earn the hate by having one of the foulest and nastiest cultures possible.  Only the women hating Pakistanis are worse.

The rest of the region, not so bad.  A bit weird on occasion but not anything to get excited over.

Pumpernickel bread: I didn't even know that show was still on the air.   Not news to anyone here, but they don't pick ordinary well adjusted people to be on that show.  I'm guessing this is just a desperate ploy for viewers.

Under the Dome is pretty good. Very good for a summer show.


Been meaning to check that out.

Paula Deen, the end of DOMA, and the Zimmerman trial has shown that there is huge untapped market for racists and homophobes, and by golly, CBS is going to cash in on it!

I know i'll probably regret this, but i'll bite: what's so "foul and nasty" about Filipinos?

(BTW: Why is it "Filipinos", and not "Philipinos"? They live in the Philippines, not the Filippines)

So, average Americans.

I watched last season of BB or was it the one before? where the cute naive southern girl, falls for the older, egocentric, and extroverted city guy with a good body. It was pretty good but haven't been able to bring myself to get re-invested in a new cast. Actually, all of reality t.v. has been this way for me, one season and done, i guess with the exception of Amazing Race.

THIS. Contestants have already taken and 'passed'  psychological screening before being allowed to be on the show. It's a careful mix of personalities to get a desired result.

/ 'Survivor' does the same thing. It's stated in the application that you fill out to be on the show.

She's horrible but I think the worst guy is the redneck who was talking about Hitler and the medical experiments that were done on the Jews.  Just jawdroppingly ignorant.

The next thing is that everyone we be required to refer to gays as Fellatio Americans.

Same here. I loved the first season of Survivor, but couldn't get into the second season. Haven't watched it since. To be honest, I only watched Survivor because I was hoping someone would bash Richard Hatch's head in with a coconut while he slept. That guy was such an asshole.

I didn't see the actual video, but I'm a little suspicious that the article specifically called out the part where he "praised Hitler's speaking abilities."  I mean, Hitler was a bad guy, but let's not pretend his career as a dictator didn't owe a lot of its success to his public speaking skills.  Dude could really rile up an angry mob or two.

My gut reaction to that kind of seemingly irrational butthurt is to assume the other butthurt associated without it is also irrational.  What'd the guy actually say?

I'm looking for the direct quote, but I read that he said that the medical experiments done on the Jews was beneficial. That's what gave me pause.I don't really have a problem praising Hitler's speaking abilities, it's the talk of the medical experiments that really made me think the guy was an idiot.

My personal experience is on the military bases.  Try to imagine a culture where there is absolutely no respect for personal space or property.  If they want it, they take it.  If you're holding it and they want it, they'll hit you to take it regardless of your age.  Then add in a hate for anybody not from the Philipines.  

It's a culture of trashiness and racism.  Them, arabs and warhoops are the three cultures that I cannot stand one bit.

I have a quick story about the Big Brother franchise.

Once upon a time, there was a TV show called Big Brother. It was the stupidest, most pointless show in the history of television. The end.

That was Jordan and Jeff from like three years ago.  Jordan is stunningly stupid, but nice and good looking.  Jeff said his share of homophobic things, but it was overlooked by CBS because he was popular.  He was kind of a bully his second season, and he's no rocket scientist either.

The main reason for the psych test is to cover CBS' ass. In the original Swedish show that Survivor was based on, one of the contestants killed himself because he was kicked off the show.

So if one of the contestants decides to eat a bullet or go on a killing spree, CBS can say, "We checked to make sure he wasn't unstable! You can't sue us!"

I was in the service, stationed San Diego, friended a Fillipino, super nice guy, great family, their gatherings weren't unlike any other cultures really, just more adobo.  They were/are proud if not a little insecure about their heritage, like most minorities in the US probably are.  A fierce attachment to material goods and displays of wealth, the young women especially seemed overtly superficial. Sure, a symptom of the times but they had an obsessive quality to their attachment, a very enviable group.

The Fillipino men I knew in the navy, were no different the average service man, cheating on wives during deployment, lazy, and racist, always looking out for each other, which, again, is probably something of a necessity for minority groups in US, but all non-Fillipinos were discounted.

The Fillipinas, civillian, the "West Pack Widows", were always on the lookout for a higher pay-grade, shopping their wares as soon as their men left port.

I'm mestizo, 5'8", and was the center for their pickup basketball games, I liked that.

SO MUCH THIS!

If you're listening to the internet feed of Big Brother not only do you get what you deserve but should take a good hard look at your life.

PacificaFitz: basemetal: I'm so glad that the writer cited no examples.

tmz is reporting on it, the cute blonde told an asian "housemate" to shut up and go make some rice.  She also told another housemate to be careful what they say in the dark because the black housemate could be hiding in there and nobody would know it.  If the second one was a joke it would be kinda funny, especially if it wasn't a white chick telling it.


These sound like carefully scripted "racist" remarks. just enough for people to gasp at but not enough for firings. I think the writers are threading the needle on being edgy with faux controversy.

You are mistaking culturalism for racism.  Typical ignorance of the mental somnambulist.



As opposed to mistaking polysyllabism for intellectual prowess, or pedantry for cleverness?

Your quote was "Filipinos earn the hate by having one of the foulest and nastiest cultures possible."  You didn't say "Some Filipinos earn the hate..." but lumped them all together as a monolithic mass that somehow "earned" the hatred that you apparently have for them.  That's textbook racism, Einstein. You can dance around all day long about "culturalism" versus "racism" but no one's buying it but you.

Oh, is THAT why they cast three different members of the Hantz family, one of them three separate times?
 
2013-07-03 12:09:42 PM  
Oh, while I'm here, this would be a good time to note that CBS will need to edit Aaryn's byline to remove the 'model' designation, because unbeknownst to her, she no longer is.
