TOSViolation: Gyrfalcon: So calling a black or biracial person an "ape" is a racist and dehumanizing slur hearkening back to the days of slavery and Jim Crow, because it implies the person is a subhuman beast, some sort of jungle creature, with more than 200 years of racist weight behind it.

Get it now? I'd hate to think this effort was wasted.

You're missing the point.  Maybe there is no point, and I'm trying too hard to look for one.  I understand the racist aspect of comparing black people to apes.  I don't need that explained.  I was expecting the woman's facial features to be somehow abnormal, but they aren't.  What I'm saying is that the tweet makes no sense to me.  If someone makes an insult, there is usually some form of truth in their choice of words.  Like someone who has giant ears is often compared to Dumbo, etc.  The tweet just seems random.

TOSViolation: 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.


What the actual fark?  Even fark's filters are batshiat insane.  It is nubianrdly , not nubianrdly.

cretinbob: stonelotus: saying someone is the offspring of Planet of the Apes is racist.

Planet of the Apes still totally not racist.

Planet of the Apes is completely racist. You just didn't watch the right ones.


I can't bear to watch those damn movies. I hate every ape I see.

FormlessOne: 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.

I don't farking care. She wants to adopt a racist stance, use racist language, and post racist bullshiat? She shouldn't be surprised when folks call her a racist.

Nor should she be surprised when her show's canceled, her talent agency cuts her loose, and thousands of people now think of her as "that friggin' racist."


...oh if only it were so. Trump supporters (aka: racists) are going to believe that she was crucified by the "libruh medier" because she supported D2S.

I honestly hope her time slot gets replaced with a reboot of Rhoda (just so she gets replaced by a Jew).

mrshowrules: Joe Blowme: Begoggle: Joe Blowme: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: special20: 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.

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.

Who cares?  She said some very ugly shiat on her own time under her own name.  Not agreeing with it, and feel free to not watch her show over it, but I don't like the idea of being able to get fired over something I said on social media.

Boo_Guy: The Glorified Jailer: That's a lot of people to put out of work over a tweet, but the Dems are all about jobs....

Yea Roseanne really should've been more careful.


They were stupid cowards to work with her to begin with. She is a well known right wing, racist Trumper garbage. Work with garbage, don't come crying to me when decent people don't want you around cuz you smell like garbage.
Sloppy moral choices, like working with a known shiathole for money and fame, may come back to bite you.
Learn from it and move on.

What Freepers are saying: "ABC Entertainment has axed the "Roseanne" reboot over Roseanne Barr's "abhorrent, repugnant" tweet...if ABC is going to cite "abhorrent, repugnant" tweets as the basis for canceling a show or terminating talent's employment, why did Keith Olbermann just get an expanded role at ESPN? Both ESPN and ABC fall under Disney's umbrella, but Olbermann gets a plum job and Roseanne loses hers?"

/Bbbbbut Olbermann!!1!

winedrinkingman: 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.


Biracial in what way?

She is more white bread than wonder bread.

MFK: 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.

This is one of the best pieces of advice on the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0Ti-​g​kJiXc
