Excellent racism

What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

Yes- as opposed to the depiction apelike, halfwit white woman.

Black, and white people, can act uncivilized. White college boys during halloween? Uncivilized behavior. Black folks at a fraternity charity event standing around sipping wine and talking? Civilized behavior.

Try again.


You're right. I'm making up the baggage that term carries. I must be fabricating the problem.

That's Richard Pryor. And I tend to deal with local issues, since they have more impact. Hell, got you to ruffle your feathers and try to discredit me, didn't it?

Keep going.

Seriously. How important are you? Cause I've been kicking around this world peace idea and you seem like someone with the know-how and the go-get'em attitude to get that done.

wow.

I printed it as a view to this cartoon, and as the artist, he obviously had a very relavant viewpoint.

Not my fault if you can't get shit done and you're jealous.


Way to go vag-hole.

Now please explain to us why we shouldn't laugh when our friends fart.

That white women that hang out with black men are trailer park trash? That white women are disgusting, redneck, and to be avoided? That the black woman in the first panel was a racist against race mixing?


How about he was going for a cheap laugh with a sight gag in the last panel and you're completely blowing it out of proportion? Yeah, that sounds about right.

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

Ow, my eyes! If we never again gaze upon these cartooned stereotypes of ugly Americana they don't really exist, right?

:idea: Censorship.

Even after the lovely racist rant of Kiplinger, I stand by my statement. (yes, I've read The Stranger, as well) and the wikipedia reference to indian tribes (WTF? Does this mean civilized can only be used in reference to caucasians? That would suck, as well as be patronizing to non-caucasians)

(god, are your responses hard to read. you know the "quote" feature is actually built in to TDPF, right? you can just click and go!)

No, what it means is that using the term "civilized," when engaged in a discussion of racial distinctions, is dubious at best, almost always insensitive, and indicative of prejudice at worst.

In short, it's really not a word that should be used in this conversation.

Earth to Commander dipshit. I'm not gonna rationally argue a point with someone who's made it clear that there's not enough room for intellectual argument in the round melon you call a head between your masturbatory ego spasms and the twelve gallons of water putting pressure on your frontal lobe.

Troll my ass. Check you my born on date, butt-munch...way back in 2002. I just keep my mouth shut unless some pig-headed cock-knocker rubs my rhubarb the wrong way.

Go Piss up a rope. Better yet I hear there's a book burning in Richland Center, why don't you call it day trip for the kids...and don't forget to line your pockets with kindling.

done. You suck at life, congratulations.

I agree. After too much early-20th century lit theory, I've come to always hear "civilized" with echoes of what I believe to be its opposite, as "savage". Like the taming of Tarzankind of civilized.
