    If anything, one might be able to say that it is an argument to have Juneteenth recognized as a national holiday (not just a black holiday, but a truly national one) celebrating the date when all Americans became free from the tyranny of others.

    Or one can simply take note that it was a joke made by a comedian who is well-known for making similar jokes (see his bit about "He speaks so well, he's so well-spoken").

    My personal favorite is his skit about niggers. On a side note, I had a professorial who once told me only two groups of people can get a way with speaking the truth; comedians and the insane. Everyone else needs to be too preoccupied with offending others

You response was "now that I need to prove such an accusation was disingenuous. My reply was to point out that the mere accusation of racism isn't actually proof of racism, and that it's still dependent on the claimant to prove it's veracity(http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1060670040)

    so not only was there no claim of "racism not existing" on my part, but the accusation makes absolutely no sense in the context of our discussion, and seems to be the type of baseless brow beating, hinging on accusations of racism, that generally exemplify what cpwill would refer to as "the race-card"

    rather ironic folding of events, to say the least...

    Actually I pointed out that highlighting disingenuous accusations of racism =/= claiming racism doesn't exist. If you took that as a personal accusation against something you stated here, that is little fault of mine

    You leaned into it, like white people. Rock says it's OK

    I was talking about his skit from bring the pain, not the one from kill the messenger. Also, seems rather odd, and pointless, to get upset over someone using the colloquial title of a skit. It's like all the outrage over Gwyneth Paltrow tweeting niggas in paris

    He stopped telling it because of how many white people reacted to it.

    really? That really surprises me; Rock doesn't seem like the type to bow to controversy. Rather sad too, being that it's a genius piece of comedy

    It wasn't controversy that bothered him, it was white people's reaction to the bit. It's why he created the later bit about when it's OK for a white person to say "nigger".
