The "Is This Racist?" Thread

Why bother with any other forum?
Forum rules
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.

It's also factually incorrect. Have you seen the wiring in Delhi?

Sure I have. I've seen it many times, thanks to my deep pockets and my carefree, globetrotting lifestyle.

It occurs to me that most of the people he lights it in front of are black. (It's something like 7 out of 9 in the first video and 6 out of 10 in the second.) Often, if there are also white people there, he will light it closer to the black person. He claims at the end of another video that he lit the one in the gas station in Indiana, just outside of Louisville, KY (where he claims to live). I'm guessing parts of the two videos were shot in Louisville (75% white, 22% black) and parts were shot in the smallish Indiana cities across the border like Jeffersonville (80% white, 13% black) and Clarksville (85% white, 6% black) and New Albany (86% white, 9% black).

Was it the case that he played the prank on a lot more white people than the video suggests but that he didn't include those videos for any number of reasons? (Bad lighting, lame reactions, poor focus, etc.) I dunno. Was he consciously targeting black people the majority of the time? Did he just find himself in black neighborhoods by chance? Was it the case that, while he wasn't targeting any specific neighborhoods, he was targeting bus stops, and black people make use of public transportation more often than white people in these cities? I don't have any of the answers to these questions.

Am I the racist for noticing that he was pulling the prank, more often than not, in front of black people? Maybe. Whatever the case, fake firework or no, it wasn't too bright for him to light a fuse in front of a gas pump.
