Is this a racial joke (about a little girl's dog)?



Neal Katyal was Acting Solicitor General of United States under Barack Obama.

In the conversation at Twitter, somebody writes: "They are so white on the outside, even Arabella s dog is white. Yet they are so dark inside so dark."

That sounds tantalizingly close to the old joke, "Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read" (attributed to Groucho Marx).

Jokes have changed!

IN THE COMMENTS: gilbar asks: "I wonder what they would have complained about, if they'd gotten a black lab?"

The jokes write themselves, don't they? A black dog is the only black creature that will go anywhere near them. What did they name him, Token? Etc.

AND: I wouldn't rule out the possibility that somewhere in the process of choosing that white dog, the Kushners realized their antagonists would make racial jokes and decided that would be a plus. What kind of jerks say racial things about a little girl's dog?

And look, there's Neal Katyal, scampering right into the trap! And there's Ann Althouse, kicking him around for being so rash and out of control.

ALSO: Isn't it time we stopped calling the White House the White House? The place was called the "Executive Mansion" until the racist Theodore Roosevelt took the trouble to change the official name to "The White House." There should be a movement to change the name back to "Executive Mansion." Repaint it too — not white and not any monochrome either. I recommend earth tones.

There should be a special investigation. If the dog was a gift from a Trump supporter, there would surely be an emoluments law violation.

Howard said...

True story. The first dog we got was a black lab terrior mix we called Blackie. One evening the doorbell rang and it was a 10-yo kid from Watts selling peanut brittle to earn money. Blackie bolted out the door after a squirrel. My Dad yelled out "Blackie get in Here". The look on the kids face was priceless, then my Old Man, a steely-eyed missile man, looked down at the shivering kid and bought half his candy. My first lesson in SJW librul white guilt.

The left can't help but see everything in terms of race. It's tedious and telling.

They claim their opponents are racist, but it's leftists that want to sort us into boxes where we're only allowed to say what they tell us to say based on our skin color. That's racist and regressive. They're only lying to themselves, because increasingly no one else believes them.

n.n said...

We need more diversity, more color judgments, more cowbell.

bleh said...

White people aren't white like the White House or that dog are white. In fact, it’s considered bad among whites to be especially light skinned, so it’s not like whites aspire to be white like the White House or that dog. Neither represents some white racial ideal.

Earth tones instead of white would be horrid.

“Executive Mansion” vs “White House”
I’m sure there are fine people on both sides of the controversy.

Today's 1984 Orwellian update from Althouse. While we're at it, let's knock down the Lincoln Memorial because the Great Emancipator was a racist who in a State of the Union address proposed deporting slaves "back" - yes, I said back - to Africa. Then we should knock down the Jefferson Memorial. And the Washington Monument. Plus the Capitol. All originated with racists. Then let's ban the color white. Because, you know, diversity is our strength.

stevew said...

I like the idea of painting it a different color, white (on a house) is just so boring. Here in my native New England (MA) the most common colors (according to Yankee Magazine) in the time when the Executive Mansion was built, were:

Rundlet Peach
Cottage Green
Jonquil
Emily

All quite lovely. For a structure that size I favor Jonquil (a colonial yellow). I suppose we could paint the central part one color and the wings another?

Let's have a national conversation about this, maybe even a vote or, better yet, put the question on the census.

No, it's not time. The Democrats are panicked because the are bleeding black votes. The better things are for minorities, the more outrageous the racial rhetoric. This is dangerous. Doing this now would only encourage more insanity. For me, it's debatable whether the name should be changed, but if so, then let's wait for saner times.

My first thought was it wasn’t racial, but then I looked more about how the joke operates. It refers to the occupants of the White House with implication being the Trump family believes it is reserved for white occupants only. So, yes it’s a racial joke, of the tired “he’s a raaaacist” kind.

If it weren't for race and attempts to normalize sexual perversity, what would the Left have to talk about?

The last thing they want to talk about is what they're really up to, that's for sure.

I have to respectfully disagree with Our Hostess about repainting the White House, assuming she made the suggestion seriously. It looks good the way it is. But I think she is just kidding.

I am indifferent to whether it is renamed again or not.

They began calling it the White House in the early 1800's after the building was painted with Whitewash to hide the scorch marks from when the British burned it down during the War of 1812. When they strip the paint to remodel, the scorch marks are still there.

Painting the White House/Executive Mansion would be horrible.

It would look just like those atrocious California McMansions. Subdivisions full of huge houses crammed together. One after the other and all the same.

A sea of tan, beige, ecru, brown, sand colored bland boring monstrosities with fake Mission style tiles for roofing.

Little boxes on the hillside...or actually flat dry waterless acreage....except not so little, but still ticky tacky.

Didn't Bush have a black Scotch terrier? How come you lose points for owning a white dog but don't gain points with a black dog? That seems unfair but I suppose if Bush claimed that he bought a black dog purposely to signal his love of black people, many would have objected......Blonde labs seem to be the favorite dog of WASPs. They're irresistibly appealing (the Labs not the Wasps), but they're kind of cliched. This dog has an air of mystery and exoticism about him. He's more fashion forward than a Lab and accessorizes well with any color combination. You can only wear earth tones with a blonde Lab.

In the case of granddaughter Arabella's pooch, J. Farmer's satirical blast may be literally true.

I tried to deduce the truth rather than engage in bigotry like our former Assistant Solistoritor General. (Thank god Katyal is doing mischief now for private clients rather than the Government. I was taught bigots should have no place in such a powerful office. Perhaps I was taught wrongly.) At first, I thought Winter was a toy Spitz, a rather uncommon breed today, but the coat and the ears were wrong. Then I realized it was a case of partial oculocutaneous albinism, a condition some breeds are prone to exhibit. Winter is almost certainly an albino toy Pomeranian (there's a stand Pomrerianian which is nearly extinct, BTW) and as such is likely to be a cast-off from a breeders kennel. Albinos are inadmissible in the show ring and dangerous to breed. In times past such puppies were culled with a blunt instrument and forgotten. Today they are neutered and given to loving homes to be only pets for their lifetimes, which are typically short and afflicted with painful skin ailments, blindness, and deafness. Arabella should be commended for her tender feelings toward and unforturnate puppy, and not obcessed with "perfection".

Rabel said...

The Kushners don't live in the White House. The "joke" fails on many levels.

StephenFearby said...

You will forget this tomorrow. Unless you're a wanna-be trend follower who wants to keep up with Kushners. EVEN THOUGH they've bought a dog for their daughter with a racist, politically incorrect color:

'The Pomeranian husky, affectionately known as the pomsky, is one of the newest and most popular designer dogs. Accordingly, people who want to add a pomsky to their family are likely to pay a premium Pomeranian husky cost. This makes it essential for prospective Pomeranian husky parents to be fully aware of what they are getting into.

Although a Pomeranian husky is a relatively expensive dog, it is not a purebred. Both of its parents may very well be purebred, but their offspring are instead termed “designer,” which is a more upscale way of calling a dog a mutt. Of course, the term “mutt” frequently refers to accidental or chance breeding encounters, while a great deal of time, effort and thought is put into the breeding of every pomsky.

Most frequently the female in the pairing is the husky because it is easier for a larger dog to successfully carry a litter.'

"...Of course, the question most people want the answer to relates to the Pomeranian husky cost. As is mentioned above, this is a designer dog, and it has a price tag that goes with that cachet. The least expensive pomskies typically cost around $1,000 while it isn’t especially unusual to find pups going for upwards of $3,000. Many people who are curious about the Pomeranian husky cost get sticker shock when they hear those figures."

"...pomskies can weigh anywhere from 10 to 30 pounds at adulthood. Accordingly, pomsky puppies may very well be too large to be carried by a female Pomeranian."

"...Some personality traits of the pomsky are fairly easy to predict. That’s because the husky and the Pomeranian share a few common characteristics. For instance, both breeds tend to be fun-loving and friendly....In fact, it excels at playing with children, and households with little kids should have no fear of bringing home one of these pups. Pomskies are playful and energetic without getting too wild. This minimizes the chances that a child would be frightened of the dog or that the dog will get so excited that the child gets hurt.

Similarly, both the husky and the Pomeranian are strong-willed breeds. This means that the pomsky tends to be pretty independent minded. Some pomsky parents might even say stubborn. This means that those who own this dog must be prepared to be diligent and consistent when it comes to training.

These dogs are typically intelligent, which certainly eases the process, but their tendency toward stubbornness might be difficult for a less strong-willed owner to deal with."

"...If you or a member of your family cannot be home for a major portion of the day or cannot take your pomsky with you when you leave the house, then this may not be the best breed choice for you. However, it may make sense to engage a dog walker who comes in a couple of times a day or to take your pup to a doggy daycare where he can have company and stimulation while you can’t be with him....this alternative will certainly save your shoes, furniture, and other personal belongings from the relentless chewing caused by boredom."

[Don't let this be a deal breaker! You can either keep your precious belongings in a cage or the dog in a cage (although that might be considered cruelty by some). The choice is up to you.]

"...It’s also important to be aware that this is a breed that sheds copiously. Those who are familiar with both huskies and Pomeranians probably know that both of these dogs are recognized shedders. It’s not too shocking then that their offspring would have the same tendency. Many pomsky parents just accept dog hair as a fact of life. Others choose to fight it as much as they can with daily brushing."

If only it were satire. I take your point, but literally it is not okay to be white. To be white means to be guilty. And the only remedy is permanent penitence. America is doomed. Ironically, the so called Far East is likely civilization's last hope. It appears to be the only high functioning place on the globe not infested with white guilt and the notion that they have some moral duty to import innumerable blacks, Latinos, and Middle Easterners into their societies.

“The word racism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies "something not desirable"...In the case of a word like democracy, not only is there no agreed definition, but the attempt to make one is resisted from all sides. It is almost universally felt that when we call a country democratic we are praising it: consequently the defenders of every kind of regime claim that it is a democracy, and fear that they might have to stop using the word if it were tied down to any one meaning.”

GoldenDoodles (Golden Retriever/Poodle mix) run at least that much. The designer dog is gorgeous and just right for people who are allergic to dogs shedding.

Plain old Golden Retrievers go for at least a grand these days, if you buy from reputable breeder. They are more than worth it, having adopted five in my life.

When I was about twelve, my older brother Pete and his friends Johnny Hanlon and Mikey Ayala were cutting through Franklin Park in Boston later than perhaps we should have. We had spent the day exploring the Arnold Arboretum, the crown jewel in Olmstead’s Emerald Necklace. Pete and I used to leave in Forest Hills so we were very familiar with the Arboretum, but Johnny and Mikey had never been.

It was getting late, and getting dark. So Pete decided to cut through Franklin, since it would be the fastest most direct route to Columbia Road and Washington street where we lived then. We had our dog, Forrest, a black poodle mix.

After a while we heard someone yell, “What you white boys doing with a black dog?” It wasn’t question that required an answer. We new it was a challenge; we were trespassing on “black” turf that was guarded forcefully, if need be. Out of the shadows emerged a gang of black kids, probably from the nearby projects. A quick glance showed that we were outnumbered. By a lot.

Pete says, “When I say run, run”. “RUUUNNNNN!!!!”

Off we went as fast as we could. Pete, Johnny and Mikey were four years older than me and soon I found my self falling back. And the black kids were gaining. Fast. I decided to head for the fence that surrounded the park rather than try for the main gate. It was a standard 6 foot chain link fence with a triple strand of barbed wire on top. The barbed wire was angled inward, probably in case any animals escaped their cage.

With our pursuers getting closer and closer, I finally reached the fence and flag my self onto it. Springing off an up, I grabbed a tree branch that was fortunately overhanging the fence, vaulted over the barbed wire and dropped down on the other side. An Olympic high jumper would have been proud.

As soon as I got up, the black kids reached the fence. They didn’t try to climb the fence, just shake it all the while cursing, “You little white mother*********!” “Cracker!” “We’re gonna kick your ass!” And they meant it.

I quickly crossed Blue Hill Ave. and made haste for home. I didn’t realize that white kids weren’t supposed to have black dogs.

From up thread...

...These dogs are typically intelligent, which certainly eases the process, but their tendency toward stubbornness might be difficult for a less strong-willed owner to deal with."

A plus : Average IQ in Trump House goes up.

And Winter to be codename Xi and used by Cabinet for training in negotiations.

The White House was known as the White House long before President Theodore Roosevelt.

The Confederate Presidential Mansion was called the White House because that is what the Federal executive mansion was called.

Drive the Left nuts; paint it red, white, and blue.

Actually, to really drive the Left nuts, use food coloring to paint the dog red, white, and blue.

Perhaps someone should tell the left that if you can hear the whistle; you're the dog.

Doesn't this all prove the emptiness behind giving a crap about skin color.

It now transfers to fur color?

We should rename it by its translation , Casablanca. Then Trump can be Nick and Melania can be Ilsa.

America is doomed. Ironically, the so called Far East is likely civilization's last hope. It appears to be the only high functioning place on the globe not infested with white guilt and the notion that they have some moral duty to import innumerable blacks, Latinos, and Middle Easterners into their societies.

@Farmer, not so fast there, sonny. Ironically, the ever more strident calls of "racist, racist, racist" are causing formerly liberal white people to reject white guilt, most especially regarding American blacks and Middle Easterner immigrants.
