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

A fine example of "trashiness and racism," indeed. Also, your own racism is superior to my Google-Fu, as I still have no idea what a "warhoop" is.

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.

No way CBS didn't know exactly what the contestants were like.  It's all about the casting and the controversy to get viewers in their seats.

texdent: The hot blonde, Aaryn?, has been dropped by her modeling agency according to TMZ. That's going to be a shock to her when she gets out.


The people that go on these reality shows and make complete idiots out of themselves must either be getting payed a pretty nice sum of money to intentionally do it or must be the biggest idiots in the world. Knowing that everything you do has the possibility of being aired to the public, and knowing that even the smallest negative thing you do will be edited to look like something major, you would think people would treat this like the biggest job interview of their lives and try to come off as intelligent and emotionally stable as possible.

If you don't immediately see that as a reason why a white woman might have a problem with an asian woman, you don't know women very well.

 IlGreven: This is what's going to kick off the next actor's strike: SAG/AFTRA will insist that anyone appearing on a reality show must get their SAG card first.

Hasn't the writers guild been pissed off about this for awhile? I think it was during or before the last writers strike where they were pushing so that the editors who cut the episodes of various reality shows, and essentially put the story together had to be WGA members.

Girion47: calling Filipinos a race is like calling the British a race.  Maybe you're looking for pacific-islander.


You may be correct on the "Pacific Islander" part as that definitely denotes race, but I don't think I could apply for citizenship in the Republic of the Philippines and then start going around calling my tall, white guy self a Filipino. The term carries at least a connotation of specific ethnicity, if not an actual denotation.

steverockson: LlamaGirl: steverockson: Which one?

All of them. But Aryan Aaryn the most.

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.


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?

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.


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)

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.


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!

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

Heard mention of that a while ago, didn't know it was out yet.  Will check it out despite my doubts about the premise.

It seems pretty decent so far. Dean Norris from Breaking Bad should make a good villain, and I found it hilarious that Stephen King kills off The Lawnmower Man by the end of the first episode. The only part that seemed weird was the councilman's son going from lovesick puppy to psycho in half an hour.


Small correction, he's actually Big Jim's (Dean Norris's) son.

The only answer I can give you, is we're stupid as species. We appear to never learn and collectively we repeat the same damn mistakes generation after generation. I'm talking all races, everyone's on that list.
