    Is it OK for Whites to Bash Blacks for Comedy Purposes?

    HAT TIP: This is a poll directly linked to TDZ's poll which asks the direct opposite question.

    We see very little if ANY on TV and in the movies. A white comedian or a predominantly white sitcom or a predominantly white movie. They tend to avoid bashing on blacks. Rarely they'll have blacks appear to be ignorant about the world around them and so on.

    So, should this be allowed and more "accepted" given the amount of Black comics, Black Sitcoms or Black Movies which tend to reference whites 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?

    So long as it's actually funny, then you can mock anyone you want. But it's not difficult to tell when it's not genuine comedy but instead a veil to cover up cruelty. Comedy is fine. Cruelty is not.

    Who cares.

    It's funny **** - I laugh at them, they laugh at me . . . we're all friends in the end.

    People act as if it's only acceptable to make fun of people you *don't like* - or if making fun of people means you don't like them but that' sfar from comedy and humor. Holy crap.

    Racism is a serious issue, though - and that is in regard to how you TREAT people in your daily life - it doesn't relate at all to what stimulates your medial prefrontal ventral cortex.

    Same standard. If they're funny.
    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.

    Sure. If they're funny, I'll laugh. If they're not funny, I'll side eye.

    I've always though the best comedy involved people making fun of themselves or their own.

    Quite right - Chris Rock comes to mind as a prominent comedian who makes fun of his own race at times. However, Chappelle who's all but disappeared from the limelight got huge for the direct opposite. Both are very funny.

    On a side note, I think Larry the Cable guy does the same thing for the "redneck" population. He uses self deprecating humor about himself, his family, his girlfriends, whatever.
