    you can lie, but it's obvious you saw his name and made assumptions about his racial background. It's like that quote you cited that you didn't even read.

    Also, Ehrenstein is extremely liberal

    Adding his race made it seem even more like pushing an absurd point.
    Uhh, that's because you don't read what you're responding to. We were discussing how the race of the individual making the statement goes into shaping the perceived reaction to it


    You've confused me with someone else. You seriously need to work on your facts
    Nope, I am not confusing you with anyone

    I wasn't the only component. But it needed correction in order for your post to be factually correct.
    Right, because you saw his name and thought he was white.

    it's called parenting. If such is too controversial for your children, pop in some barney and veggies tales and lock them in their room

    If that's the case, and it's just so damn freakin' easy, why isn't there a daytime regular cable porn channel? Why is there not swearing?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    are you seriously citing the mere existence of such regulation as a meaningful defense for it's need?

    Let's dea with this first, before you jump to more conclusions.

    This is the quote I posted:


    Your quote:
    Barrack the magic negro was something coined by some liberal black professor talking about how white america has some fascination with "the magic negro". Rush Limbaugh picked up on it and was immediately accused of being racist
    My quote (from Wiki)
    "Barack the Magic Negro"[2] is a song by American political satirist Paul Shanklin who wrote and recorded it for the Rush Limbaugh Show as satire after it was first applied to presidential candidate Obama by movie and culture critic David Ehrenstein in a Los Angeles Times op ed column of March 19, 2007.
    What I was pointing out:
    1) A movie and culture critic is NOT a professor.
    2) "Talking about it" is not writing about in a newspaper column.
    3) He did not coin the phrase. Being a student in cinema studies, you should know that.

    No where did I mention, according to you:

    especially when we consider your earlier attempt to attribute the magic negro comments origins to rush
    No, I did not. I was -- as I have stated in many posts -- pointing out your inaccuracies. You seriously need to start using facts and stop making assumptions.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yeah. I mean if parents have an issue with nudity and swearing, they can just pop in Barney, right? Jeepers, easy-peasy, I say!

    Re: Mountain Dew Under Fire for 'Most Racist Commercial in History

    right, so we are to believe that your issue was with me calling him black, when he was only mixed race , even though he identifies himself as such and would be viewed as such in any social setting; that you also took issue with the use of professor as opposed to academic; and that I made the grave mistake of equating "obama the magic negro" with "Barrack the magic negro".

    As opposed to the common mistake of assuming he was white based on his name.

    I'm sorry, I'm not seeing the former as real substantial corrections to make issue over, while the later is common and more indicative of you remarks


    No, I did not. I was -- as I have stated in many posts -- pointing out your inaccuracies. You seriously need to start using facts and stop making assumptions.
    No one is disputing you were attempting to correct inaccuracies. What is being questioned is what inaccuracies you were attempting to address and if they were actual innacuracies

    right, because those are your two options

    PS the comment about Barney was meant to highlight the disconnect from popular culture that would seem to accompany the idea that this is particularly offensive when considered in that context

    you should read the article before defending it

    translation you cant defend your nonsensical illogical claim. Got it

    the only real instances are once YOU received and when present with actual facts and reality that countered them you ignored it because they destroyed your position LOL

    I will, thank

    Enjoy failed argument.
