Whoa! White supremicist? You better watch that whole movie...there's a few folks of color in it too (not to mention the black person who chose to
be in this crap as a homeless person).
God I knew this would show up on ATS and someone would rip into it. Not that it doesn't deserve it to some degree...but let's be honest this is
what society laughs at (SNL, Dave Chapelle Show, MAD TV, The Family Guy, Reno 911, Will and Grace...and probably more that I can't think of). I'm
not going to be a goody goody and say I don't laugh, I do! Should the police make things like this at work...hell no! But I think what really
pisses people off is that 1)Most people don't like cops 2)Most people have all been made fun of by a bully and 3)Cops are bullies so let's stick it
to them on this one.
So I'm sure Fox News is saying "bad bad police" while promoting The Family Guy where everyone on that show is making fun of someone's race or
sexuality. And they aren't the only ones, all of the media has this split personality. And people ignore it because they know it's hypocritical.
People go out to comedy shows and want to hear and see this stuff...we want it!
The police screwed up, but they truly are reflecting society. Not saying it's right, just saying that a lot people know they too would laugh at some
of this stuff. It isn't just whites that do this but blacks, hispanics, gays, and whomever else are all ripping on each other and themselves, heck I
think a lot minority comics do this. I know Chris Rock does and whoever the new hispanic comic on Comedy Central does (almost his whole show is about
racism) I don't care how much Political Correctness shows up in the workplace, when the bell rings and people go home...they turn their TVs right to
this same stuff that they are suppose to rise above at work. That doesn't mean I think you should make fun of disadvantaged people (I really have a
problem with people making fun of the handicapped or elderly because I know in truth that they are leading very difficult lives...just a thing that
bugs me), but if I see a fat guy get stuck in a door eating ice cream on TV...I'm sorry I'm gonna laugh.
I think we all need to take some of this with a grain of salt, but also try take a step back and realize that some of this might reflect on problems
in our society and with ourselves.
