    Potraying wine lovers as a bunch of pretentious white snobs is not a stereotype of white people; it stereotypes wine lovers

    If they portrayed white people as a bunch of pretentious wine loving snobs, they'd be stereotyping white people.

    It plays right into this


    Like we aint****ed up already
    See the man they call Crazy Eddie
    Liquor man with the bottle in his hand

    He give the liquor man ten to begin
    Wit' no change and he run
    To get his brains rearranged
    Serve it to the home they're able
    To do without a table
    Beside what's inside ain't on the label
    They drink it thinkin' it's good

    But they don't sell the **** in the white neighborhood
    Exposin' the plan they get mad at me I understand
    They're slaves to the liquor man
    Back to my homeboy shorty
    He can drink it down
    And think nothin' about it
    Pass it around and get tha forty dog buzz

    At the same time
    Shorty can't remember what day it was
    Say I'm yellin' is fact
    Genocide kickin' in yo back
    How many times have you seen
    A black fight a black
    After drinkin' down a bottle
    Or a malt liquor six-pack
    Malt liquor bull
    What it is is bull**** Colt
    45 another gun to the brain

    Who's sellin' us pain
    In the hood another up to no good
    Plan that's designed by the other man
    But who drink it like water
    One and on till the stores reorder it
    Brothers cry broke but they still affordin' it
    Sippin' it lick drink it down oh no
    Drinkin' poison but they don't know
    It used to be wine
    A dollar and a dime
    Same man, drink in another time
    They could be hard as hell and don't give a damn
    But still be a sucker to the liquor man

    I hate wine.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    How pathetic is our country when people are so hung up on race that any humor is deemed to be racist? Am I offended that the gomer wearing a sweater like a cape is lame? No. Are black people offended that the couple chose the advertised product over wine that stains your teeth? No. Yet race baiters and liberals have to find something to be offended at. It is as if they aren't happy unless they are unhappy.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    However, the wine I like tastes like not sweet grape juice.

    Maybe you can explain white wine to me, because to me it tastes like red wine, but without the flavor, body, or any reason whatsoever for drinking it that red wine has.

    Remember, on the other side of that screen is a real person. ( Missouri Mule )

    When it comes to wine, there's very little I can explain except for what I like. And when it comes to what I like, the more they describe the taste with language like "notes of" x and "hints of" y, the less likely I am to like it.

    If someone ever describes their own as "tastes like grape juice but with alcohol instead of sugar", I'll buy a case.

    Why don't you look at it as a nerdy American and a trendy American couple? If your a white guy afraid of being portrayed as nerdy then be a man, if you think all black people are cool and trendy then you obviously don't know many black people.
