    Very different circumstances.
    So, who is n ow forced to sit in the back of the bus, sleep in a different hotel, or drink out of separate fountains, or use a different restroom, or step off the sidewalk when a white went by....?

    Sure, historically these things did happen; but currently do not. No one alive today has had to face that if they were born in the US.

    The reason there is now a big difference between nigger and cracker is that people today keep insisting that there is a big difference between the two. Racists.

    They're are even stations, BET, that tailor a large segment of their broadcasts are directed right at this type of comedy.

    So, should this be allowed or is this another type of racism? Should whites be allowed to launch all white networks, such as WET, that target their jokes towards blacks?

    Keep in mind, blacks use the term "cracker" and "honkie" (recently heard Kid Rock use Honkie) all the time, when's the last time you heard a modern movie where a white used the "N" word?
    But black comedians also make fun of themselves and their race daily...look at the Wayans Brothers and early Jamie Foxx and Edie Murphy. Didn't Richard Pryor do that too, a bit before my time. The only problem I have is that Whites aren't allowed to make fun of anybody, because that is racist, but other races can make fun of whites, as Eddie Murphy did in his classic SNL sketch, "White Like Us" or whatever that was titled... Mr. White. The bus scene, the banker just giving him money... classic.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I think it's fine for a comedian to bash whoever he likes during his performance. If you don't like it, don't buy a ticket to see that comedian.

    I also think if more people paid attention to what they are doing in the here and now rather than what their neighbors are doing at all other times, the world would be a lot more fun.

    I should have made my comment clearer:

    I dare anyone who isn't on the far right to make jokes about the holocaust.
    sorry, couldn't resist.

    Look at the post above yours
