Personally I think that the topic should either be in a new thread (seeing as this thread wasn't originally intended for this purpose). I don't believe that african americans are racist. I believe that some of us have some predjudices based on our history however. There is a difference between the two.prejudice 1 : injury or damage resulting from some judgment or action of another in disregard of one's rights; especially : detriment to one's legal rights or claims2 a (1) : preconceived judgment or opinion (2) : an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge b : an instance of such judgment or opinion c : an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristicsracist a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
Wow, people can be so lame. Y'all don't seriously believe HBCU hates white people, do you? Most folks with a sense of humor could tell that what he's saying is somewhat tongue-in-cheek. The thing is, white folks tend to get uncomfortable when minorities talk about race, so things that should be taken in a lighthearted manner get blown out of proportion. A lot of my white friends detest black comedy for this very reason - they think it serves to exacerbate racial divisions. I would argue that it makes them feel uncomfortable to realize that black folks have opinions about white people - racial comedy reclaims a sense of agency among black people. Instead of being acted upon (being discriminated against) we are actors (have the capacity to discriminate.) While discrimination is never good, the White liberal "let's save the black people" mentality is turned on its head by the comedy.Also, this kind of comedy can open up the dialogue. Race relations in the US still suck because we don't talk about it anymore. I'm all for being PC, but the negative fallout of political correctness is that folks are so worried about saying something taboo that things are brushed under the carpet. HBC is really good at saying inflammatory things but I assumed people would get it!
