Why do sifters help spread these kinds of messages... Is that really the society you want to live in?


You mean a world in which hateful language is stripped of its power via the magic of comedy? Why yes, I enjoy living in that world very much.

Voldemort. There, I said it, and nothing happened.

No man, they totally were being racist. I can tell.

Racism is tricky.

Louis CK is a master at doing what @garmachi says.... Voldemort, voldemort. I love him and what he manages to convey with some of the worst, objectively offensive language.

He is not cruel. It is not cruel humor.

But unless one is a comic and emotional genius like Louis CK, one would do well to back away from racist humor. It is too easy to get it dead wrong. Even Louis has offended some with this bit. Not me, though.

Patrice O'Neal was cracking up, considering he's a black guy, I'd leave it to him to decide if he felt Louis was being offensive or not. Also I like how no one mentions him bringing up the term kike. Noooo that's fine, fuck the Jews!
