    I voted yes, but in reality we know the answer is no...if a white person dared go anywhere near the same level as some blacks do with whites for comedy..Al sharpton and Jesse and Whoopi and company would all have soiled shorts

    I think the Pres did very well, even if his jokes were scripted. Personally, I think Daily's writers did his speech....

    I will say this. The word nigger is hard for white comedians to use. While most good comedians are incredibly offensive, these comedians that actually use the word have to use it in a way that makes blacks and white laugh. Lisa Lampennali and Louis C.K. come to mind. In fact, Louis C.K. has written many jokes for Chris Rock, and directed and wrote the movie "Pootie Tang" an incredibly goofy and funny movie. Here is his use of the word:

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    really....you should try being the one black guy constantly surrounded by white people. I get plenty of jokes.....but maybe it's because I'm on the short side....who knows.

    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 don't get how that's suppose to be offensive.

    I hear honkey and think of those big nose alien dudes off of Sesame Street. What did they do - go yip yip?

    It's not. That's the point. and hence why "honkie/cracker" isn't really equivalent to "nigger." Like, there's pretty much no way to REALLY offend whites in comedy, unless someone is willing to prove me wrong.
