    I've never actually seen those people be the butt of jokes, so I don't know how they'd respond lol.
    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.

    My mom gets offended at ANYTHING - anything perverse, twisted, weird, off the wall, odd, ridiculous. . . she has no humor but is very emotional and pissy. *omg!* a joke!

    Happens both ways, and it's comedy, so yes.

    You know, the old white women in my family are pretty sensitive, now that you mention it.....

    Thanks for posting that.

    Trump looked uncomfortable the entire time, and that's ridiculous but not surprising... He takes himself way too seriously. He needs to get knocked down a few levels.

    I think the biggest difference is in the derogatory nature of the use of words. I also believe that there are reasons why whites get offended...one being that there ARE a lot of white folks that dont fit the stereotypical silver spoon white person...that has led a ****ed up life by anyones standards, and resents being placed in the same category as other whites. Its easy to tell that person "yeah...but you still have it better than most black folks"...but thats not going to be all that well recieved.
