that essay is one of the best and most affecting conveyances of life under the weight of racism that I have ever read.

When I was reading the essay and looking at the images I was of course reminded of european anti-Jewish caricatures -- it's interesting how they have a similar hateful exaggeration to them, as though they were actually drawn under the influence of a kind of pornographic, titilated rage.

I wanted to try it because I really like another of their sauces, but I felt uncomfortable bringing it up to the checkout counter. Note: in Whole Foods it didn't actually have a Voodoo Doll affixed to it. I discovered that looking it up online.

I wasn't aware of this stereotype where black people couldn't stop singing inside McDonalds.

no idea if that's racist or not but she is very funny

Didn't laugh, but I wasn't offended. There is something about the running gag of an African-American slipping into jive after eating some Mickey D's/home cooking/listening to the Gap Band that gets a little old, but I'm a little too removed from it to really look down upon it to make a judgement.

There are more movies on this list than the Benjamin Harrison and Rutherford Hayes pages combined.

Nothing to do with racism. The Henry Kissenger page likely has more anyway.

the headline just seems offensively dumb and inflammatory but i guess that's the linkbait huh

a shame how the staple singers stole 'slippery people' from the talking heads, never forget

never heard this cougar/me'shell cover of wild night, pretty dreadful

JIM THOMETHEUS (zachlyon), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 19:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

i LOVE that cover of wild night!

wish it were more.. tongue-behind-cheek

wraparound shades from pharmacy (Matt P), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 19:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

well rest easy knowing that i would not be so hard on it if i hadn't watched the video. mellencamp goes down a lot smoother when i don't have to look at him. also wild night is one of those songs where i can't really understand how a cover would ever be necessary.

JIM THOMETHEUS (zachlyon), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 19:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

this list would have been funnier had they just matched up random songs with similar titles that sounded nothing alike, or if every pair had been the wrong way around as opposed yo just a couple

It took three tongues in three cheeks to write that article.

many times I have cursed the proximity of 't' and 'y' on the keyboard but never louder than today

no no! thank you so much.

is it racist to satirize rap if, by all indications, you've never actually heard rap?

that Onion article seemed legit to me

the problem with the original article is that the real reason to stop using "white" as pejorative is because it doesn't work

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 20:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

certainly hasn't stopped people from trying
