Roseanne Barr going racist


#1555

Poster bring up The View and ends up with “third cousin”. You can’t make this ■■■■ up.


#1556

You asked me to give examples, and I gave them to you, as requested. Nice, moving the goal posts.


#1557

Are you really mad that you cant be a person in the public eye and call a black person a monkey without repurcussions?

Cause thats what it sounds like.


#1558

Calling a white guy an ape and a woman horsefaced aren’t examples of racism.


#1559

Oh look, your little buddies came in to defend you. No, bullseyelqcs, I’m not “mad.” I never said I was against the cancelling of Roseanne’s show. That’s you making that connection in your little paranoid mind.

And Drawz I’ve already given examples. How is calling a black person an ape a racist remark and calling a white person the same thing not? Please explain that.


#1560

Good grief, someone has to bring up this ridiculous question every time the black person/ape thing comes up. I’m done explaining it.


#1561

I seriously can’t believe you’re asking this question. Lol!
Just read the entire thread and you’ll get the answer to your incredibly ignorant question.


#1562

Can’t explain it. Got it. I’ll put you two down as “hypocrites.”


#1563

Can, not going to.


#1564

I seriously can’t believe this has to be explained to multiple adults, on a forum where it’s members should at least have some basic history knowledge.

Historically, in the US, Blacks have been referred to as apes/monkeys by White Supremacists as a way to dehumanize for hundreds of years. It’s not racist to refer to a White person as an ape/monkey, because of the lack of that history, that’s just mean spirited.


#1565

What is this ■■■■■■■■ about white genocide? What kind websites are you visiting?


#1566

White Nationalists I’d guess, isn’t “white genocide” one of their terms for the growth of the non white population in the US?


#1567

Yup, which is why I was a bit surprised to see posted here.


#1568

Maybe that’s why she posted that disjointed pile of gibberish without a link. Though I don’t know why she’d attribute part of it to her cousin.


#1569

Oh, dear. Not again.


#1570

Yup. And someone else did it in another thread a little while afterward. If it’s not shocking ignorance I think it must be an either witting or unwitting white nationalist influence.


#1571

What it changes is how such comments impact your life.


#1572

I commented directly on exactly what you said. I’ve never given Roseanne a pass on anything you’re making it up.


#1573

And who was hurt by them? She was. She lost a multi million dollar job and untolled millions worth of future opportunities.


#1574

libs think white people are smart enough and strong enough to not suffer from such things.
