Question everything.

Yesterday Ellen posted this photoshopped image on twitter with the title, "This is how I'm running errands from now on." and of course the liberals are already shouting about how racist it is. What the fuck is wrong with you idiots. This is just a funny image with a funny comment, there is nothing racist here. Racism is when you see a person of a certain skin color and treat them in a specific way because of their skin color, exactly like liberals do with blacks, for example.

It may not be racist, but it does recall images like this.







No not racist, just fantastically ignorant and insensitive.

It must be killing you that the PC police are consistent and aren't out to only get you and your other members of the persecution complex.

As for the photo, I don't think Ellen or her creative team, was thinking when they made it. As it is, Reparations peoople should use it as their go-to metaphor for protest signs. Ellen as white America and Bolt as African-Americans since the first slave ship. I'd write it up as a bone headed gaffe, but it does have some symbolic value now.

Last time I looked Bolt wasn't American. African-American seems to be a knee jerk for black these days. One of the dumber American papers allegedly once called Mandela an African-American South African due to this editing process. (I think is apocryphal).

It's been going on for a while. I remember the announcer talking about the French African-American gymnast Surya Bonale a decade ago or so.

But, technically Jamaica is in the Americas, at least....

There's nothing racist about it. She picked a photo of a gold medal winning sprinter. If it happened to be a white person who won, then it would have featured a white person.

Is she treating someone different because of their race? If not, then it's not racism.

Well, it really depends on what your definition of "american" is. He is from Jamaica. He could be, and likely is, descended from slaves that were part of the same slave trade as north american Africans. It's kind of splitting hairs. If he was from the Congo, I would agree. Heck, much of the Slave trade occurred before their was even a U.S., so I could go back and edit my post to be Europeans and Africans and be more inclusive and accurate if you'd like.

Thanks for the rent-free space in your head. Would have been nice if you'd cleaned it up a bit before you rented it out, though.

She's a shit Oscar's host and her comedy routine is lame. I don't think any of that is related to her sexual orientation?

Why would you put a question mark on that sentence unless you suspect it is true?

Ellen is the comedic equivalent of lukewarm oatmeal, but I'm fairly confident that she's not a hate-filled racist.

Until the paparazzi catch her wearing some sort of KKK-themed sweater vest, I think we can file this under 'the latest bit of pointless outrage.' Accompanied as always, and without apparent irony, by people who hate outrage culture and are outraged about the outrage.

That's a very interesting reply.

I could change a few words, and voila!

"He's a shit President and his policies are lame. I don't think any of that is related to him being a black man."

So, lots of people that criticize Obama are automatically considered racists regardless of the reason for their criticism (i.e. his policies are lame). But it's okay for a liberal to criticize a lesbian for something other than her lesbianism, and that's not homophobia.

Got it.

EDIT: By the way, I am not a fan of Ellen (but being a conservative, that's because I am a homophobe, not because I think her comedy is bad). But the picture is pretty funny.

No they are considered racist when they right.

"He's a shit President and his policies are lame. I don't think any of that is related to him being a black man, and he should get back to the cotton fields"

Since Ellen DeGeneres wouldn't have posted that retouched comedic photograph without first getting permission from the Olympic runner himself, there is no controversy.

It's not my policy to consider any criticism of Obama as automatically stemming from racism, but then I don't speak for all liberals just as you don't speak for all conservatives.

On the other hand, dismissing every claim of racism is also suspect.

Hmmm. I think the left's Hierarchy of Identity Groups just shifted a bit.

How and why?

The fact that a lesbian can be racist?

That's so yesterday! Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter already proved that.
