I'm confused by the events of the last page... can't people remove the images they posted for themselves, by editing the post?
I never saw the pics in question, so whatever. I was just wondering about that.


Anyway, an oldie but a goody on the subject of political euphamisms:

Yes, but only for a short period of time. Like a day or so. If you go back to your older posts, you will see that you can't edit them.

Ibram, you bitched about my post, and then you post that?

Explain to me the difference. I dare you.

I was gonna say...that's offensive to police officers.

Well, it is.

If nothing is allowed to be funny then nothing is allowed to be funny. Consistency helps us unenlightened to remember everything we're not allowed to say so we don't accidentally offend anyone. And by 'everything' I mean 'everything.'

Sure thing.

When's the last time a cop got discriminated against, run out of restaurants, beat up, kicked off flights, unfairly treated or suspected by society in general? When's the last time it happened on a massive scale?

There are legitimate problems to have with the law enforcement institutions in our country. They actually DO have, in almost every single district and precinct studied, a tendency to institute and enforce racially biased policy. That is something that should not be the case, and something they should fix. Calling attention to the problem is actually an important thing for us, as society, to do, even when we do it through humour.

There is NO legitimate reason to call the president a muslim threat to America, or to put signs up (or laugh at other people putting signs up) saying 'LOL NO MUZLIMS IN HEER CUZ PORK GO MURKA," any more than it would be funny to me to put a sign up outside a polish restaurant saying "you'd never see a darkie eating this stuff! No blacks here!" I think it contributes to the daily persecution many muslims in America face.

I think jokes about minorities, especially ones that only help further stigmatize the minority and help create the culture of oppression and separation, belong firmly in the "tasteless" thread, if anywhere. It's not just about being PC. it's about not making peoples lives worse. It's about basic human decency.
