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!

EMPIREsays...

that was hilarious. I love the PC Police as usual, doesn't even grasp the concept of free speech and comedy. Yes, some jokes are racist and offensive, but that doesn't automatically make them bad, or even make the person telling them an actual racist. And by the way, telling jokes isn't the problem with racism. Racism is the problem with racism.

Let's check the definition or racist:
. a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one's own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others

Is Louie CK a racist because he made that joke? Did he advocate the inferiority of black people in any way? And even if he did it, in a joke, it's completely different from doing it with a straight face and actually believing that shit.

It's perfectly normal that some people find that joke offensive and not funny at all. What's not normal is wanting to define the world by your limited concepts.

Light the fuck up already.

HenningKOsays...

Holeeeee shit... he did that in front of Patrice Oneal?
The balls on this guy... Louis CK has to be magic. Think about it, could ANYone else pull this off?

bobknight33says...

Louis CK was just plane racist.
Patrice O'Neil was at least providing historic origin.

Many sifters just think wow that was funny and don't even acknowledge their own racist bias.

Oh it was just comedy. no harm done. really?

shangsays...

Louis CK is a god!

Nigger was a feeling...


Just as Chris Rock says there are black people then their are niggers
There are also whites and white trash/rednecks

The great Baltimore chimpout shows bad side of stereotypes.

I'll give blacks one thing, even the criminals in Baltimore destroying heir own city and being put down like Korean grocer killed looter last week. They come together.

If whites came together and rioted we'd overthrow the government!
The last times whites came together in mass, we overthrew King George's rule on America. Via terrorism, burning buildings, bombing ammo dumps, guerilla war that redcoats had never fought before.

SDGundamXsays...

Sorry, I didn't find the joke funny. And I usually love Louis C.K. bits. It sounded kinda mean-spirited to me, like he was upset about Patrice O'Neal bringing up the word Kike (fyi, Louis C.K.'s dad and granddad were Jewish) and wanted to fire a volley back.
