    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?
    I frankly don't give a crap as long as its all in good fun. Besides, getting called cracker or honkie is pretty funny. If that's the best they can do

    Yes, nothing should be off limits. If it's funny, then a comedian should be able to use it.

    The only difference is that we don't have a white version of Whoopie throwing the race card around every time someone makes a comment or a joke that could be inherently and mindlessly racist ot the sensitive.

    Basically - we don't give a **** and laugh at our own selves. There is no culturally fostered sense of deep offense that we're all raised with. If I watched whatever you watched I'd probably be laughing at everything and seeing some truth in it.

    No, they can ridicule them on stage if they want, but physical violence solves nothing.

    You'd be surprised at what still goes on in today's society. . . and Jim Crow *was not* all that long ago.

    OK, now get to the back of the cue. Davidson's been doing jokes like that for years and is still controversial.

    The relationship between blacks and whites that operates here exists in a spectrum of human existence where logical consistency doesn't apply because there is nothing logical about our shared history or cultural overlap.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
