“Oh, please. I'm sorry you work at a blue collar job, but if someone said something racist/sexist at corporate, HR would sweep them up quickly. And don't tell me that doesn't happen. I've worked at 4-5 Fortune 500 companies and I've seen SEVERAL cases like this.

Donald Trump? What.”

“Who said anything about a job? The crybabies are going to be facing racism their whole lives, they have to face that it is legal as long as it doesn't deny them civil rights.
Trump used racism-birtherism to make money, pay attention, at least a little bit.”

“So, to summarize what you said, racism, over-drinking, and rape is ok because that's what they do.”

“I never intended it as a defense, I'm simply saying it doesn't really surprise me at all.  It's about as newsworthy as an article titled, "Newsflash: It's February in Seattle and it's raining".  ”

“Let's change up the roles a bit. Let's say they dressed up as African tribesmen. Is it racist now? Oh, wait, so now it's suddenly racist, eh?”

“I'm latin american and if they dressed up as mexicans, cubans, or columbians I wouldn't be offended.  And just because someone dresses as another culture at a frat party doesn't mean their racist.  They're college kids just trying to have fun.”

“First paragraph, nice straw man.

Second paragraph, once again, nice straw man.

You can't seem to answer the one simple question these frat kids also couldn't answer. It's a simple yes or no question. Is dressing up as caricatured figures of racial stereotypes, racist?

If you can't answer that question with a simple yes or no, then you need to get educated.”

Marcin A Mazurek on Feb 7, 2013 at 08:31:03

“Oh, You want a simple "Yes or No" answer to the writing portion of your little online exam for people?

Now about "I refuse"

You can be offended at just about anything you want, but immature frat kids dressing up in somewhat stereotypical/somewhat actually used (Geisha clothes? You mean Kimonos? That's a thing, and lets start off that a Geisha is an entertainer, not a prostitute, well. Wasn't originally. Sumo wrestlers are a thing, and for the record the ASA at my school DID have those for a "Sumo Night" it was a thing. I couldn't go because of work. Conical hats? They even have an article on those in Wikipedia)

Were they wearing yellow face maybe? Was that the offense? Would it have also been offensive if they served Chinese food? Because those pictures are black and white and the only real thing the kid from the ASA (Kinda...poor...choice of Acronym, while I'm at it.) had to say on his pictures was that "None of those kids is Asian" and as an afterthought "Not that it would be any better", so...why should I be outraged? Because none of the kids were Asian?

And yeah, the letter going out was in terrible taste, but then again so was Team America the movie. And the kind of people who admit to liking that movie are already sort of lost to irrelevance if you ask me.”

“Yep. As they always tell kid who get bullied, ignore it, don't fight back, not worth fighting!

Water balloons, no problem. Rise above it!
Bleach balloons, a-okay. Rise above it!
A knife, just several stitches. Rise above it!
A gun to the face. No problem!”

“Water balloons--no one was harmed

Bleach balloons--someone said "a hint"

A knife--you adding to the story

A gun--You adding to the story

As an adult, your responsibility is to try to diffuse the situation, not perpetuate to retaliate, as you so subtly suggest.”

“Well, darn it! A white guy says it wasn't about race, when all the victims were of color! It must be so!”

ResidentPragmatist on Oct 5, 2012 at 11:57:57

“ALL of the victims were of color? I guess white people must be "of color" to you, too, since there are lots of white, current and former students who have been "balloon bombed" with bleach, water, etc.?”

“You kind of lost the argument when your selling point was that Howard U was a diverse school, hahahaha.”

Blaquestarr on Oct 5, 2012 at 00:46:11

“Howard University is a very diverse school - just because it's a historically black college doesn't mean that 99% of the students there are black. We have a good percentage of White, Asian and Latino students, not to mention a great international community representing many different countries from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, and South America. I had friends and took classes with students from London, Trinidad and Tobago, China, Nigeria, and South Africa. I currently recruit at a mixture of liberal arts, ivy league, and state schools in New England - this is not the case for their students.

Please curb your ignorance with some actual facts - thanks!”

“You must be absolutely oblivious to reality. Racism happens everywhere and anywhere. And the fact that you pointed out that you're white and "tolerant" (I always abhorred that usage of the word -- thank you so much for "tolerating" my race and who I am) means you're not on the receiving end of racism against minorities, so how can you allude that these victims are lying? And yes, that is EXACTLY what you are accusing them of doing.

To summarize your post in one line: "I'm a white Texan and I can attest that there is no racism here -- these minorities are making stories up!"”

Floyd Mayweather's Racist Rant Caught On Tape (VIDEO)

Commented Sep 3, 2010 at 15:16:13 in Sports

“SPEAKING of "selective reading." You're writing pretty selectively and on the basis of something that's just plain wrong. To summarize your block of text in one sentence, you're basically saying "mayweather can say whatever he wants! all filipinos are racist and they deserve it!" Your block of text can pretty much go under the dictionary's definition for "generalization" and "racism." Figure out what those mean first before you write.

You said the Filipino press and TV media has said racist things about Mayweather? Prove it. Link to any article or video that is racist that talks about Mayweather. Do it. Until you can provide any such evidence, your entire post is just meaningless defense for a racist's actions.”

“Sorry, but you have to have no sense of humor if you don't think Ricky Gervais is funny. I'm a fan of both the UK and the US one, and I'd have to say the UK one is funnier, while the US one is more familiar to us since it's geared towards Americans.”

Steve Carell Leaving 'The Office': CONFIRMED

“No. Steve Carell has had success other than The Office. His role on 40 Year Old Virgin, which came out to be a sleeper hit. Evan Almighty was good. But anyway, he's doing it for reasons other than money as he already answered. And I agree with him. I wouldn't want to be stuck in a contract doing more episodes for a dead show. I stopped watching two seasons ago because the story was going nowhere and it lost the spark.”
