    Not in a comedic way, but in a racist way.

    Thus the response.

    But, I entirely agree, as to racist remarks, some people are more likely than others to be vilified by the various media outlets.
    You do not think the media would care if a white guy told a racist joke about black people in a comedic way? Would Larry the Cable Guy get away with telling the Barack Obama Christmas tree ornament joke? Would a black comedian get away with saying "How long does it take for a white women to take a crap??? 9 months"?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I dunno.

    Did they?

    You seem to have specific instances in mind.

    As the context is different in each instance, I would need more information before telling you which would be more likely (and if you already know the answer, in your opinion, don't hesitate to tell me.

    And did I not just agree that the some of the media can be biased some of the time?

    If the joke is racist then it does not matter who told the joke.

    If you were a white comedian telling a joke racist against black persons to a group of black and white persons while doing a show, most likely only those persons with racist tendencies or really thin skins would be offended.
    I agree with that.

    If you were a white (are there any black ones??) Neo-Nazi telling a joke racist against black persons to a group of white Neo-Nazis, very likely none of them would be offended. And those who were wouldn't say anything, most likely.
    Why would nazis be offended about a racist joke about a black person.

    Of course it does. That is the point that you are missing and the point that has been explained to you in much detail. It is not ALWAYS one way.

    Re: Which is the racist position?

    I cannot vote in this poll as there is no Other..

    All you folks that thinks Black Folks should just get over it and insane. Racism is still very real in this country and we should never forget History unless we wish to Repeat it.

    I am so glad the little punk that did this was arrested and this little punk needs an education on racism and how not to be a frigging asswipe.

    I hear black comedians on TV making jokes about stupid white people all the time. Apparently that isn't a problem... so, whatever. GTF over it.
    Big Deal? What if it was not a joke? What if it had lead to a race fight inside the store? Sure. No Biggie.

    Then those who threw the first punch should be charged and prosecuted.

    Contrariwise a black comedian can say things as bad or worse about a white politician and get away with it.


    Just admit there's a double standard and move on.
    comedy clubs are for humor and there is Nothing funny about that tree thing and shame on those that think this is funny.

    I mean it may go over as funny at a KKK Meeting! WTF is wrong with some of you people?
