Things you could do for your cause.

No, he wouldn't. He'd actually be more likely to do it if it meant more blacks would die in video recorded confrontations with police.

How does eliminating racism do anything for his cause? He's a black supremist, so eliminating racism would destroy his cause.

JAORE said...

Racism,as I have learned to my dismay, is in the eye of the beholder. Though I suspect the panel shown was in complete agreement.

EDH said...

Had Noah had the wrong politics, right now he'd be accused by the deconstructing left of hate given his suggestion of a Confederate flag tattoo (in replacement of the whipping scars on the backs of generations of slaves) as a way for a black man to end racism.

If you could continue the species by mating with a chimpanzee, would you do it?

If you could cure cancer by having your brain removed, would you do it?

If you could save California by nuking Florida, would you do it?

Would watching the video help to understand this argument? I already feel dumber for reading this, and I didn't think that was possible.

Over on Medium, a young idiot -- but I repeat myself -- named Benjy Boxer is printing a bunch of charts to explain why a) things are better than we think and b) why Trump's message is resonating.

I bring this up as another example of being told how to feel about that warm golden shower I'm enduring.

Those poor monkeys only get paid 0.001% of what a white male earns.

Yeah, you need to watch the clip to assess the performance of the political comedy idea.

Larry Wilmore's show is a spinoff of "The Daily Show." Deray McKesson is a Black Lives Matter leader.

I thought it was interesting as an example of the kind of comedy that is being done on the topic of racism. I'm not trying to present it as particularly good, but it's not bad either. It's interestingly almost sweet and sentimental. It's not angry. It's more wistful.

Lamar Gonna Set You Straight....

I get it, I get it. You White People will only pay attention to the Black Man when he is a joke to you. Ha Ha, those funny monkeys. Yessah, Mr. White Man, we sures likes makin' you laugh! Shuckin' and Jivin' for your meager attention sho is Fun!

Know what makes me laugh? Films where Gwyneth Paltrow dies. Hell yeah: she is EVERYTHING I hate about you White People. Laugh about THAT, fuckers...

In fact, I like ANY film where the White Star dies. That's the only bone you White People ever throw us...

Julia Roberts: I want to see her die. Anne Hathaway: I want to see her die. Jennifer Lawrence: I want to see her die. I think you see what I'm saying...

But -- Man -- I REALLY Hate Gwyneth Paltrow. Her White Bitch head in a box? I laughed my ass off for hours. I think I even masturbated to that Shit...

You think you got Problems? Fuck You.

I am Laslo.

Note to myself: be more wistful.

Except The Girl with the Pony Tail on the Treadmill: she is wistful enough.

There can be TOO much Wistful.

I am Laslo.

If you could improve race relations by not scheduling a protest against police brutality on the day after a number of police officers were massacred would you do it?.......Larry Willmore, if you could improve race relations by not buffing a self righteous prig who blames all the pathogens in his toxic life on police brutality would you do it?

Chris Rock did a much better comedy routine with "Black People versus Niggers".

This should be mandatory viewing

If young black men would reduce the level of their criminal conduct to that of men of other races, the crime rate would drop by about one-third and the fear and suspicion that the mediaswine and the Democrats erroneously characterize as racism would diminish overnight.

Tattoos won't do it.

mockturtle said...

Chris Rock is a genius. I still get a kick out of his 'How Not to Get Your Ass Kicked by the Police. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igQDvYOt_iA

Ann Althouse said...

White people enjoying that Chris Rock routine too much... not a pleasant sight.

mockturtle said...

Ann, the audience appeared to be mostly black.

Ann Althouse said...

Yes, but I keep hearing the performance talked about by white people.

It is important that Rock was talking to black people in the room, but mostly because that's what white people who like it tend to like -- that he was telling them off.

mockturtle said...

My prior husband was black and he used the N-word a lot. Of course, I [who am white] never did but I do know the game and how it is played.

mockturtle said...

Which is why I understand Laslo's 'Lamar' and the contempt most black people have for white liberals.

Laslo Spatula said...

Mockturtle: Thank you. Sincerely.

I am Laslo.

Bob Ellison, those are some Harlan Ellison questions you are asking.
Any relation?
