If you can't see the difference between a black man writing a thoughtful article on a touchy racial subject, i.e. "Obama is just black enough to get votes but not too black to scare away white people" - and what that song for Rush's show was, then we're not going to agree.
It's really up to each person though, as you can tell from this thread. It seems to be if it makes you laugh, then you don't think it's racist, but if it doesn't make you laugh, then you do.
Plus, I mean, I keep reading how the white man has it bad now and that "we can't make fun of them, but they can make fun of us". Sounds to me like a bunch of b*tching and moaning.
The truth is, things are not equal. You cannot joke about blacks like they can joke about us. Largely because their jokes about us revolve around us not dancing well and being "square" while our jokes about them seem to revolve around criminality, stupidity and how bad their lot is in America.
Just take a quick example of racism, that none of us feel - long story short, NYC frisking laws, in response to threat of terrorism, allow for police to largely frisk whoever they want. And as it turns out, they frisked black and latino young men some ridiculous amount - it's so bad that in one year, there were more stop and frisks of black men of a certain age then there are black men of that age group living in NYC.
I'm tired of this "backlash" of white anger about "our lot" or how they get this and we don't. Long story short, it's still better to be white in America right now than it is to be black. And until that changes, quit b*tching.
