I just took a break from spending all day information gathering for potential sources of employment and was scrolling through Dreddit when I caught this gem from Patrice O'Neal.



It starts off with him simply making some commentary about the song in general, and then as the music fades in his tangent turns into a worked up tangent about racial and political identity. It being Patrice O'neal it's rather funny the whole way through, but it speaks volumes about how a certain group of white people are viewed from the outside.

It's a quick watch of only four or five minutes. Go ahead and give a view. It might give you a laugh, unless you're a sourpuss that gets offended by everything.

I love Patrice. I suppose he brings up a good point. White people do look to feel bad. An interesting note on our culture. I guess it's the British in us...

Patrice was up there with the greats, imho. Sharp, witty, nasty as # and unashamedly so like no one else was, yet with a charisma and charm that had a joy all its own. He made droplets of water roll down my face many a time. He was stolen from us too early.

Here's to Patrice.

Or we could totally turn that comment around, by saying 'black people do like to'... [insert negative stereotype here]...

But I'm guessing that wouldn't generally go down to well with most people

This brings up another point I want to make a post abiut when I get a new PC. I really wish people would speak for themselves and refrain from talking for everyone.

I'm white, but to say that my ancestors were British is a stretch. I also don't find things to feel bad about.

I almost felt like saying maybe I proved your point, but I know many British people who aren't woeful about what their ancestors did or didn't do.

Yup Patrice wasn't afraid to speak his mind. Just raw and unfiltered. Even if I didn't personally agree with something he was talking about I would be laughing my ass off because I knew it was true for some unfortunate fool lmao

Part of the reason why I wish people would practice speaking for themselves.

Meh. I guess I'm trying to relate with him. I don't look to feel guilty or sad personally. I can see his sentiment though. I'll say "black people like to xyz" just as quick to say "white people xyz". It's all just observational humor.

ETA: If you don't like it, I guess you should stay out of the comedy clubs...

...as if Patrices comedy isn't race-based....

Nah. You brought up speaking for everyone. I wasn't. It was mentioned in previous posts. I don't feel my post was taken in correctly. I may not have spoken correctly. No fault all around.

Funny. Radiohead live is a genuine experience. Those guys are amazing artist. I took a friend who really didn't care and after the show he was blown away. If you ever get a chance to go a live show take it is all I can say. You will get your moneys worth and some.

Crazy part, they don't even perform this song anymore. They refuse to play it last time I checked which is a good thing. They are way way beyond that song. On another plane. That was 90's grunge stuff. They are not that and other than that one song never were that genre. My favorite album is OK Computer. Amazing. I never get sick of it.

Wow, thanks for turning me on to OK Computer! Listening now, it's great!

Ah, I had heard Karma Police before, great song but I never knew what it was called...

Two points.

1. "White" people and "Black" people. How tedious and simplistic. No mention of speaking a "white" language. The politics of racial division.
2. Yeah, Radiohead are good. Saw them live many years ago around Oxford before they were famous, and when the world was simpler. Those were the days.
