I hate politically correct bullshit

I don't know what the fuck happened in the short span of a decade. In the 1990's, shows like Captain Planet exploited the racial stereotypes of every character on the show and no one cared or gave a shit.



I mean, honestly, look at this shit. This is the largest image I could find. Proof nobody actually gives a shit about a show when the largest image is 320x180 pixels, in laymans terms a lower resolution than the game Doom. I mean, the Indian kid has a leaf pinned on his shirt. What the fuck?!



And THEN, in order to teach our European buddies about the worders of stereotypes, we gave THEM a game for a system that controlled 92% of the market! Replace "Kill the haitians" with "My people have contact with the spirits" and presto! That would be smited off the market quicker than a Holy Bible with Satan on the cover.

If you were to put a Captain Planet style show on the air today, the racial tension would result in DiC Animation's headquarters being inudated with rednecks complete with their American made AR-15's. And then they blame Spongbob for being gay, as if hating gays are okay! Oh, please. If you want to return a "Gay Item" to the store, return a video game with Tails in it. Now THAT motherfucker's a queer! What straight guy, or animal, flirts at the camera doing an Asian schoolgirl PEACE SIGN?!


Damn, and to think that flamer was cool when I was a kid...

Now all of a sudden I have to cover my ass wherever I go. I could always say "You shouldn't call someone that, it's like saying the word '******' to a black guy." But now I have to say:

"You shouldn't call someone that, it's like dropping the N-Bomb to an African-American in public!"

HOLY FUCK! That is a SHITLOAD of extra keystrokes!

It seems now, if you say any kind of racial term, you're racist. Forget the fact that my father and his parents were at the race riots in Cleveland, Ohio, that my Grandmother marched with my baby father in her arms so people could achieve an equal status in America, and that my father's family needed police protection from the Mafia because his parents' second run theater was drawing black people into the Italian district of 1960's-era Cleveland, and that they had to close it because of that. It all doesn't matter because the instant you say the word ******, or even ***** you are against everything you and your ancestors stood for, even though the only people who still view it as a racial term and not empowerment are white people, Caucasians, Gringos, or whatever you want to call us.

The irony in political correctness is that it makes people more on the lookout for subcontexts and terms non-Politically correct people don't give a shit about, know about, or care about.

So in essence, when these assholes surf the net looking for the next big racial term for a Korean, such as "Zerg," they are really taking a shit in the hot cup of soup along with everything else they stand for, unlike us.

And it's not like I can fight it, because everyone is brainwashed.

The only way to prevent this is to make people throw around as much racial bullshit terms as possible, like we did in the 1980's and 1990's, when words like "fag," "dyke," and even "nerd" became empowering, because of the game of equality we're only millimeters away from pressing the reset button.

I'll have to agree with you there, this political correctness is a bunch of bullshit. People need to chill out, and bring back some racially stereotyping shows like captain planet, even though the Chappelle Show already does that.

you said it, i can't even say 'yeah, but he wont have any (sunblock), he's really black' when i was on the train, because instead of realising i was refering to the color of his skin, they thought i was placing a racial stereotype and expressing my hatred towards people of colour.

It's not just the word. A lot depends on the context in which you use it.

Just a thought.

My best friend is black and hispanic and he doesn't care if I call him certain words when we're hanging out.

"Goin' for that cornbread huh, Joe?"

"Yep Jim. You guessed it. I'm a ******."
