Why does a gynecologist suing a patient matter?  Who cares if 'this waterway' gets photoshopped?

Anyway, companies do verbal gymnastics because they fear litigation.  This is not new.

RoyFokker'sGhost: 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.


Or, since none of us here are mind readers, presumably, we can just bust out Occam's Razor and go with "racist." It's not like we don't have plenty of evidence to consider.

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.

You sound white.

What a racist thing to say, but its not when you do it right?

Well you only care if it might be racist towards whites, so you can claim everybody does it.
Right?

Nope, but nice racist projection you got going on. I never claimed anything of the sort, maybe you should have stayed in school and learn reading comprehension.

I have you tagged as "Racist" from other threads.

More proof how meaningless that term has become , try uncle Tom next time at least you would get the color right.


Newsflash: black people can be racists too.

So saying evil racist things without "believing" them...what? Makes them less evil or racist? Makes the speaker a better person than a "real" racist?

I don't really understand how the tweet was racist.  Was it because of the "Apes" word?  I really don't understand what the tweet even means at all.  I understand the concept of Planet of the Apes is that the mistreated "lesser" beings rise to power against their aggressors, but I'm not sure about the Muslim Brotherhood.  I assume that means something negative based on how they are perceived as terrorists.

I just have no idea what she was actually trying to say.  It's easy to cry racism when you don't understand what someone is saying, like using the word "nubianrdly" in a tweet.  Maybe Roseanne is a racist, so it's easier to draw that conclusion.  I just really don't care because I don't watch any of her stuff anyway.

Mirtine: "The politically charged reboot of "Roseanne" premiered on ABC in March, with its pilot episode garnering an audience of more than 18 million, making it TV's biggest premiere so far this year. Cain said ABC executives likely didn't expect the show, or its support for President Donald Trump, to be so popular and needed to find a reason to get rid of it."I understand them using this as an excuse," he said. "Yes, it was racist. Yes, it was distasteful. And she vehemently apologized.'"

Herman Cain, a failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate, on Fox News literally minutes after the cancellation. Well, It didn't take long for Fox to play the Trump card did it?  (source)

Please explain how what she said was evil/racist.  I'm not saying it wasn't.  I just don't understand what it even meant.  It didn't make any sense to me when I read it.  Aside from the fact that Planet of the Apes is complete shiat and the Muslim Brotherhood are terrorists, I can't parse the tweet.

No.  I'm completely serious.  I have no idea what the fark the tweet even means.  I even Googled a picture of the lady.  She looks like a normal woman to me.  What does the Muslim Brotherhood have to do with anything?  Was it a metaphor?  Was she talking about the woman's appearance?  It reads like nonsense to me.  If it was intended as an insult to the lady, it seems like saying she is a poopyhead.  I don't get it.  Aside from the reference to an ape and a Muslim...I don't know.

I could say that Alien Covenant is like if Planet of the Apes and Blade Runner had a baby, but that wouldn't be racist.  I'm not sure how accurate the statement is, but that's for film buffs to debate.

I'll help ya out TOS but just this once. The tweet is a word jumble of dog whistles. These are used for racist people to say racist things in public and then go 'oh no no no, you took it wrong. What's racist about that? Muslim isn't even a race!'

What she meant was a 'cross between brown people from the Middle East because you know they're all terrorists, and hmmm let's see can't really use YOUTHS here, what's the other one we can say? Wait, they're on to us calling black people monkeys...I got it! Planet of the Apes (that's subtle enough to deny but still get my point across, right?)'
