So if someone claims they weren't being racist that makes it true? who is the idiot here

He could have worded his post in a million different ways hell he could have easily put "j rock goes ape sh!t" but no he worded in the manner that he did to be cute. Like I said if you a caucasion this discussion is pretty much pointless

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

To become wildly excited or enthusiastic:

I love your flawless logic, how many racist people do you see a day? 30? 50?

I was really just curious if anyone was offended by it. I guess it struck me a little cause I live right between Baltimore and DC, and if a white person said that around here, people would think he was racist. I guess it has a lot to do with where you grew up.

I also lived in NY and NJ. Which are still and always have been pretty segrogated areas. So its not that crazy that Serra might be a little racist. I mean Im sure its only a coincidence that the two african american fighters on the show are both on Team Hughes. Im not accusing anybody. Like I said I was just curious what other peoples opinons were about it. I thoght thats what forums were for. So people could discuss things like adults.

Maybe Ill go start the 50th GSP HUGHES thread. So we can go back to talking about the same shit.

I donít care what the definition is at the end of the day common sense has to come into play. If you are referring to an individual of African descent you do not make any dog or primate references, it just isn't done


The fact that you overlook this says it all really

so some words, regardless of their definition, can not be used towards an individual of African descent?

I overlook this because, I'd say someone goes ape without thinking twice about their skin color.

How do you feel about black people calling white people "crackers" or "whiteys" or "honkeys" or "rednecks"? Just wondering.

It's not like it's a big secret that a lot of black people look more like monkey's than any other race. It's not like anyone thinks they chose to look like that. Why get offended about it when you can easily just laugh it off. Every race has a whole list of stereotypes, they exist for a reason. Why get offended about it if you don't have to? I think Japanese have some of the worst stereotypes, but who cares, they're never going to go away...might as well live with them, let people get their laughs. I'm sure that you do things you find funny that other people might find inappropriate or offensive. They're just noises that come out of people mouths (or in this case symbols on a computer screen). If they're doing it for the sole purpose of trying to make you feel like shit, that's another story. But in most cases, you just have to have an unbias sense of humor. I laugh at the Japanese stereotype jokes, they may not all be true, but it's still funny.

For the record, I think the TS of the Jared thread might have just opted to not break the rules and use a swear word in their thread title. Saying he went "ape" or "ape shit" is really the first word that comes to mind, I mean what other word is there to describe that kind of behavior? "Crazy" might have worked, but I still doubt the thread starter was intentionally making a subtle racist remark. But you have to admit, Jared does look more like a monkey than anyone in the house, so...if I were to say Dorian reminds me of a kangaroo would that be a racist remark?

Oh and I'm not caucasian. I'm half caucasian, half asian.

I don't know about that. I think for the most part, the Asians get pretty good stereotypes. The most common negatives are that they breed like bunnies, and can't sing or drive. Other than that they're mostly generalized as hot geniuses who can be taught to say dirty english phrases. I'd take that stereotype.

WTF are you talking about?

Cattis Trophy, your forgetting one big...I mean small...stereotype about Japanese...men specifically.

I also think Japanese/Asians come in 2nd as the race to most look like monkeys.

Nobody is insulting anyone else's intelligence. I'm not saying all black people are indistinguishable from monkeys. And I'm not saying black people have the intelligence of a monkey either. Humans are always compared to monkeys, no matter which race. Why? Gee I dunno, prolly cuz we share 99% of our DNA with them. Out of all the races on earth, Asians and Africans look the most like monkeys, is that not a true statement.

All I'm doing is telling you why the stereotype exists, I didn't create it. It's existed for a long ass time buddy. Stereotypes don't just pop up out of nowhere for no reason. We're all humans, we're all equal. There are plenty of white people who look like monkeys too you know (Frank Trigg, Kurt Angle, Forrest Griffin, etc). There's also lots of people who look like birds, some look like turtles, muskrats, snakes, etc. There's nothing "racist" about it. It just so happens that African people normally have darker skin than other races, closer to the actual color of a monkey, and they usually can get really ripped physiques easier than other races, and sometimes their facial structure is different, just like Asians have with our squinty eyes and flat face. These are all proven facts that anyone with eyes can see.

You can sit there and cry about it or you can get a damn sense of humor and laugh. It's not going to kill you either way.

I don't hate people because of their race, it's ****in retarded. It's not gonna hurt or kill anyone to make a joke though. I'm a mutt. A true mutt. Japanese, German, Scottish, Native American, and Welsh. My nickname I got from some dickhead seniors when I was a freshman in high school, was "Dirty Mexican", and "Dirty Spik" by some. Because I'm dark skinned dark haired, but no one can really tell what race I am. So they just called me the dirty mexican cuz I guess I look more Mexican than anything else but I actually have no mexican in me at all. People eventually learned what I was and my new nickname was "The Japanese German", and also "Kamikaze Nazi". I remember one of my buddies put a sign on the drinking fountain that said "NO JAPANESE GERMANS ALLOWED TO DRINK FROM THIS FOUNTAIN" Seriously how would you not think that's funny if you saw that?

Just because someone makes a joke with a stereotype doesn't mean they secretly want to murder everyone from that race.
