The "Is This Racist?" Thread

We once roamed the vast forums of Corona Coming Attractions. Some of us had been around from The Before Times, in the Days of Excelsior, while others of us had only recently begun our trek. When our home became filled with much evil, including the villainous Cannot-Post-in-This-Browser and the dreaded Cannot-Log-In, we flounced away most huffily to this new home away from home. We follow the flag of Jubboiter and talk about movies, life, the universe, and everything, often in a most vulgar fashion. All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

The "Is This Racist?" Thread

Post by The Swollen Goiter of God » March 28th, 2015, 8:29 pm

I see things sometimes, and I'm made to wonder if they're racist. It's rare that I'm able to answer the question on my own. I could take the if-I'm-not-sure-it-probably-is approach, but that seems like a slippery slope.

From now on, I'm just going to let you guys decide for me. This also seems like a slippery slope, but at least it's a different slippery slope.

It's not racist, but it is hilarious.

I don't find it all that funny. It was shared by a raging racist (and Bible-thumping homophobe) in Crossville, Alabama. That's what made me wonder whether or not it was racist. I guess it could be something the person posted with racist intent. Whether or not it was, it doesn't necessarily mean the creator created with racist intent.

Here's another:

Is it because he's not white? I'm not sure I get it either.

Maybe it's because he has a cloaca.

I'm not sure what it's about. I think the original poster was suggesting that she could go from civil to violent with the flip of a switch. Not sure why Kermit was the image used. (Or why the originator used it, since her use was a share.) Is it because he's wearing a suit in the picture but is known for doing that thing where his hands wave spastically? Dunno.

I think it's an offshoot of those dumb "That (awkward) moment (when) you realize" memes. Always hated those. They eventually got shortened to "When you realize." Seems like they may be dropping even the "realize" these days. If so, it's so far afield from the original meme that it's barely recognizable.

Nope, still don't get it. But I understand it's not easy being green.

No. Mean Joe played for Pittsburgh.

The show never mentioned anything about Tyreese being a professional (American) football player, did it? He was an ex-Atlanta Falcon in the comics.

First one, no, because ET is awesome if ugly so there's no connotation.
Second one, I have no idea. I don't get it.
Third one, why? He's giving a kid a coke, everybody loves a coke. And a smile.

I don't think the third one was meant as an entry in the thread.

Ah, Mean Joe Greene. Not easy being.
My attention span is shot from the excess of homework.

You and I have a different idea of what's a reach and what's not a reach.

I always thought 28pence had more in common with an objectionable chipmunk.

This isn't necessarily racist, but it goes to show how rap artists perceive themselves.
