    The north/south angle makes me think about what Faulkner said about race. To paraphrase it he said, "The North loves them (African Americans) as a race but hates them as a people. The South loves them as a people but hates them (African Americans) as a race."

    I found this funny.

    Just think, hundreds of thousands of people are now laughing at how absurd racism is.

    As I am.

    The absurdity factor is key in all race jokes.

    If you DON'T laugh, I would say you harbor some bigotry towards another race.

    Anyone who is racist is absurd and shows their stupidity by being so.

    If this was NOT a prank, and the person was actually racist, then the entire country is laughing at how stupid racists are.

    Or at least some of them are.

    Those two stupid people who are talking about boycotting Wal Mart...

    /sigh

    Either way, laughter is good for you, and some people laughed, probably more than were actually upset.

    So all in all, a positive event, I think.

    Yes; of course that is correct. The children and 60-year-old Jim Crow survivors present at the time of the incident are the real villains in this story.
    How dare they not find racism funny? F'ing racists.
    They should've at least pretended to find it humorous, so as not to discomfit those who were trying to enjoy a good guffaw about the "absurdity" of racism.
    Somebody ought to kick their non-laughing asses for being so depressing and trying to rain on everybody else's parade.

    My comments were more directed at those people who are upset about this.

    The parents of those children should be sure to explain how totally absurd and thus funny racism is.
    Teach them to break down in uproarious laughter when someone is racist around or at them.
    After all, the point of racism is to hurt people.
    So if they, instead of being hurt, nearly die of laughter, it takes all the "fun" out of it for the racist.

    And, really, how can you not find racism absurdly funny?

    The blatant stupidity that is required to be racist is downright hilarious.

    While I understand some people have yet to grasp this, I wish that they would.

    It would make the world a better place.

    Why do you think racism is funny? People who are discriminated against are not laughing.

    What is funny is that the majority of people are not laughing at the absurdity. Of course most will not be honest about that so oh well.

    I bet the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto were rolling with laughter.

    Hopefully that last comment will put it into perspective for you.

    Can't it be funny and offensive at the same time? I think it's kind of funny but I can also understand why some people would be upset over it.

    Yes they can. I wish they would be honest about why it was funny.

    Absurdity my ass. It is NOT absurd, it has happened to some of us. Nothing absurd about that.

    Because I know it exists. I have seen it firsthand, not just once but many times.
    It's hurtful and destructive and dehumanizing, and not funny in the slightest.

    What's wrong with you people?
    Dear God, no wonder I never leave my house unless forced to.

    Why is it ok that racism is funny to black people - it is a core area of humor and jokes for black standup comedians - but not to white people? Anecdotal evidence suggests that blacks are the most racist people out there.

    I just don't see why it's such a big deal. I'm sure the initial reaction for a few people was unsettling, but I'm sure they've recovered emotionally since then. Really, some dude got on the PA system and said something racist. It's kind of funny, and it's also offensive to certain people. I'm not sure if this is "Breaking News" or even newsworthy at all.
