Jack_Knopf: Butterflew: LoneWolf343: The_Original_Roxtar: Mangoose: Family chooses to honor dead's last wish. Stay racist, submitter.

"Puerto Rican" is an ethnicity/nationality... not a race.

What do you think a "race" is, you farking moron?

The "race" is Hispanic. The nationality is Puerto Rican. Or Cuban. Or Guatemalan. Or Mexican. Take your pick.

How you feeling about the "farking moron" comment now?


Only that it wasn't broad enough.

/"Race" is being phased out of any kind of scientific recognition.

ecl: NFA: Propping up dead ones was a Irish tradition for centuries.  It was common to prop the dead person up in a corner of the room while family members had one last celebration with them.

They would get fall down drunk and sing unintelligible gibberish and round out the night with a fight.


How was that different than any other night?  My wife is half Irish and she would agree. I think.

Count me as someone who does not see the headline as racist.

If subby said " stay classy Nebraska", would that be discrimination if it happened there?

Don't get me wrong, i see lotsa racist hatred and ignorance on this site, i just see it as misplaced outrage here.

I would have thought, that if this guy had a 5-15 record, boxing would have been the last thing he would wanted to be remember for.  With that record, I bet even he didn't remember he had been a boxer.

I wonder how many metal rods the undertakers had to shove in the body to pose it in various poses. After a day or so rigor mortis ceases, so it's not like the mortician can just set it and forget it. The body would be a flexible mess after rigor mortis was finished.

asmodeus224: Jack_Knopf: Mangoose: Family chooses to honor dead's last wish. Stay racist, submitter.

Wow...simply amazing how quickly some will drop the racist bomb these days.  There was a day when being called that actually meant something.

"It's such a beautiful day out today"
"FARK YOU YOU GODAMNED RACIST SON OF A WHORE!  DIE!!!!!"

I dunno, smittard basically used an example of one person's dying wish and extrapolated it to the entire culture.  So what, then, bigot?  That works.  Smittard is bigot then.

Is that better, Sir Pedant-a-lot?


The actual semantics of it isn't my point.  My point is submitter has been called a racist and a bigot because of four words "Stay classy Puerto Rico".  Sure, it's a prejudicial inference and incorrect in this case, but dropping those words so easily reduces their impact and ultimately negates all effectiveness.  Is submitter a racist/bigot?  I have no idea and neither do you.

FWIW - I came in to mock submitter for those four words, but found the racist asshattery to be much more entertaining.

de mágico primor.

Un cielo siempre nítido
le sirve de dosel
y dan arrullos plácidos
las olas a sus pies.

exclamó lleno de admiración,

Seriously, who greenlit this headline?  They should lose their mod powers.

Oh, do most Puerto Ricans prop up dead people in a boxing ring?  What a fascinating culture.


Yeah.... that's not a typical puerto rican funeral/wake tradition. It's actually some tacky PR ghetto shiat.

This is what a typical puerto rican funeral is supposed to look like... at least in the 1890's. There's supposed to be booze and lechon and music.

Real nations get to pick the anthem they want. The current PR official anthem was a runner-up.... because the original was deemed to be subversive by American authorities.  The original anthem's lyrics spoke of revolution and independence (from Spain) and the gringos thought a less confrontational song about how pretty PR is would make a better anthem. It would be the equivalent of someone forcing the US to replace the Star Spangled Banner with America the Beautiful. It's actually kind of sad and pathetic.

I like to bag on Puerto Ricans as much as the next guy, because they are the ghetto fabulous of the latinos, but I would say the best song about Puerto Rico is En Mi Viejo San Juan.

I will never forgive Puerto Rico for reggaeton and Ivy Queen.  I would rather listen to the fat lead singer from Son by Four and Gilberto Santa Rosa fart a duet with Jerry Rivera as the backing vocals than listen to either.
