People seriously need to lighten up. I'm quite sure that if the case was with white people nobody would notice. It's just a pun. It's not like he said "Black Friday? More like NIGGER Friday, ROFLOL!!11"
ZOMG U SAID NIGGER ROFLCOPTER!!!

Sorry, but that joke IS racist. Can't say anything bad about the admins banning you for it. What could possibly be funny about that? I'm also annoyed that everyone keeps talking about how much Obama is black.

Not saying you're racist, but by telling that joke you show that you're influenced by racist people.

Try this advice: Next time you see a person with high pigmentation and "he's black" is the thought dominating your mind, punch yourself in the face. To condition yourself or something.

Maybe I won't make black jokes when the media stops making such a big deal out of the fact that Obama is, coincidentally, black, and interviewing blacks who say he's "our" President.

So if I said that Bush was "my" President because he was white, would that make me racist too? Cause the double standard is hilarious.

Seriously, if that is fucking racist, then people need to get a damned grip. Because I'm fully anticipating now any criticism of Obama is going to be met with calls of how it's just racism, rather than authentic criticism.

Sorry if it sounded like I attacked you btw, that's not what I meant... just came out that way.

If people feel they need to deal with stupidity by making jokes about it, that's fine... but it sounds like that joke was completely out of place, unless she was also talking about him being "black".

why if a black makes a joke about a black he is not considered racist?
why if a woman kicks a man in the nuts it's considered fun, and if a man busts a woman in her **** it's considered horrible?

It's hard to deny that Obama is black. It should be allowed to make jokes about blacks as much as it is allowed to make jokes about whites.

They are not considered racist cause people don't think it's racist because people in general are idiots.

Racism cuts both ways.

The world needs to learn that.

Of course it's a rip-off, like most if not all songs by Weird Al.

Its a parody, there is quite a difference.

Rip-off is just when you steal something without effort, a parody is when you make a joke over something.
Weird-Al's stuff frequently are quite genius with a fair bit of effort put in.

Either way, this isn't a good example.
Its a great song, but the whole point is its taking the piss out of whole stupid and ridiculous a lot of rap is.

Not if you were a typical rapper.
In fact, I wouldnt be at all supprised if there was a song called that and it not being a parody/joke.

Personaly, I think it would be more sensible to devide people into two groups
"normal (black/white)" and "rapper"

Then we can discriminate and take the piss out of rappers without being accused of racism.

I still like Chris Rock's version better. The one about how you should hate niggers, not black people.

I'm not questioning anything.. Just saying, "racism goes both ways" is racist, thus irony.

To more less awnser your question: I think its rather common to discriminate positive and negative for all humans. However based on their social and cultural environment: not race.

I concluded a long time ago that most people who call themselfs racists don't have a cleu what "race" would be. And the same goes for people who like to call every form of discrimination: racism.

Your comments hold a violent/absurd reduction when you speak of the human race as if it consists of two subgroups. "both ways" directly implies this. And talking of "blacks and whites" too. I guess structural negative discrimination somehow does feed this narrow and false notion of race, but it is not justified by anything sane.
So I don't think your comment was racist it just shows a very blunt caricature as vieuw on the isseu.

I was merely simplifying it.

It would sound odd naming every single ethnic group in the world and then pairing it with every other ethnic group in the world.


But if you must know, I was referring to the US elections. Blacks voted 97% Barack Obama, were they basing their vote on race or not?
What would the world think if the Whites in America all voted McCain? It would be labeled as racism immediately.
