Well done to BBC World News for calling it like it is - out and out racism.

I'm looking forward to the followup:

And here are the most impressive verbal yoga poses media outlets used to avoid calling the president Roseanne racist

But sure, let's continue to pretend these people are decent and can be dealt with using logic and reason and courtesy. Let's let them call their racist garbage an "alternate viewpoint" so they can whine about being silenced or oppressed or whatever.

I'm not saying pick a fight with every racist on Twatter and Facespace. I'm saying stop calling them "deplorables" and "Trumpsters," both of which they see as compliments. Stop enabling their shiat by calling it "controversial" or "bizarre." Call it what it is: racist and stupid.

I guarantee you most of them will not see being called stupid and racist as a compliment. They won't print it up on a tshirt or call themselves "proudly stupid and racist."

Calling this shiat what it is is what needs to farking happen to even begin to clean this garbage up. Pretending it's not garbage won't do anything except encourage them to create more of it.

She's not racist; she's the Queen Mother of Attention Whores.

Racists actually believe in what they say, Rosanne just says shiat to stir things up and get attention without actually believing in it.

As soon as Trump made it clear he was racist, she was leaning towards supporting him.  And then his famous "Grab them by the pussy" video came out.

That's when the crotch grabber knew he was the candidate she could throw her full weight behind.

The problem with calling people "liars" and "racists" in the media, even when they tell lies and say objectively racists things is that it opens the media outlet to libel lawsuits that are notoriously hard to win because you have to get inside someone's head in order to determine "intent" and that's basically legally impossible. This is why you will see this kind of language.

Also, when talking to regular people, calling people "racist" for saying racist things really only makes you feel better about yourself and is generally unhelpful in getting someone to stop being racist. A far more effective way to get someone to re-evaluate their behavior is to say something along the lines of "I don't know if you're a racist or not, but that thing you said/did was incredibly racist."  and focus on the specific racist action which is objectively provable instead of the racism of the person which is not.

Racism isn't about intent. It also isn't about feelings.

Honestly, I can't really see how it's racist to propose an interbreeding of a terrorist organization, and a late 1960's science fiction movie.

People need to smarten up in this country. That's not calling anyone an ape, specifically. You just think it is because YOU are racist. That's the farkin problem.

I will say this though - any reason you can find to get offended and toss Rosanne off the air is fine with me - in general I mean.

What difference does it make whether she believes it or not? Racist shiat is racist. This seems pretty obvious, if you're not an idiot.
 
2018-05-29 3:12:14 PM  
Fox News should pick up the show. Put it on after Hannity.
 
2018-05-29 3:12:33 PM  
I am actually surprised to learn Roseanne is fully white.  I always assumed she was biracial based on her appearance.  Of course I assumed the two races were white and elephant seal but still.

This is true. Roseanne is only racist in public. In private she just loves everyone.

You assume too much there, SPH. I remember when they decided that being called a racist is "a badge of honor".  All we are missing is the "stupid" part - but that gets cancelled out since nobody who is rich could EVER be called stupid.... nnnoooooooo

I completely agree with your aims and means but believe you are a bit optimistic about how reluctant racists are to own the label.
