Question for DUers: Who Do You Trust Less--The GOP or Pres. Putin




Tiger roars at little girl

Just got into a short YouTube argument

x-Posted from GD.

Here is the video:


So I posted a comment about the title of the video that says:

"So the title of this video is "Jacksonville state university student beats down his BLACK roommate for stealing his stuff". I don't get how including the roommate's race in the title is really relevant whatsoever. All it does is make something a Black-and-White issue that need not be. It also creates an "otherization" of Blacks, and further contributes to the image of us all being thieves.
Every time I see video titles like these and as I read some of the comments below, it makes me cringe. America (and society as a whole) evidently still has a long way to go in solving its race problem."


A person who calls themselves "Jerry Seinfeld" said:

"Here comes the PC police, keeping those hurt feelings in check officer?"


My response was:
"PC police". So basically it is "PC" to call out ignorance, then. Got it. You're basically expecting people to sit down and shut up.
I really get a kick out of how people like you throw around the "PC" term in order to justify being backwards-minded assholes in the 21st century. Grow up."


Another person calling themselves "Jake Tere" responded to me, saying
"lol butthurt nigga chill up homie"


My response to that was:
"What is this, kindergarten?"


Jake Tere said:
"lol wut why you defend a thief"


My response:
"I'm not defending a thief. My point was that whoever that posted this video didn't need to include the guy's race in the title, and that it was totally irrelevant to what happened. That's it."


Anyway, I just wanted to share this with the folks here at DU after I saw the thread about "political correctness". Not only did I find the title of the video to be ridiculous, but I was also disgusted with how there were actually more people giving the first person who responded to me more "thumbs up", despite how ignorant and mean-spirited his comment was. I'm fully aware that YouTube comments in general are a cesspool, but boredom got the best of me here...now I feel like I've caught the cooties and need to take a cold shower.

"People Who Call Obama Worst President Since Second World War Also Blame Him for Starting It"

More: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/borowitzreport/2014/07/people-who-call-obama-worst-president-since-second-world-war-also-blame-him-for-starting-it.html

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)— A new poll released Wednesday revealed that people rank President Barack Obama as the worst President since the Second World War, and also blame him for starting the Second World War.

While the respondents slammed the President for his handling of the economy, Iraq, and a host of other issues, his perceived role as the primary cause of the Second World War was the biggest drag on his numbers.

Even more troubling, when compared to the three leaders of the Axis powers during that war, President Obama polled at the bottom of the list, finishing far behind Emperor Hirohito of Japan.

“Fair or not, the American people hold the President responsible for starting the Second World War,” Davis Logsdon, a political-science professor at the University of Minnesota, said. “If the President hasn’t gotten his version of the story out, there’s only one person to blame for that: Barack Obama.”

"Hooked on Humboldt"

"What starts with F and ends with K?"

A first-grade teacher, Ms Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, "Harry, what's your problem?"


Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!"


Ms. Brooks had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office.


While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.

Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.


Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"

Harry: "9."


Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"


Harry: "36."

And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the 3rdgrade."


Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions."

The principal and Harry both agreed.


Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"


Harry, after a moment: "Legs."


Ms Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"


The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!


Harry replied: "Pockets."


Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"


Harry: "Pants."


The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.

Ms. Brooks: "What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?"

The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied, "Bubble gum."


Ms. Brooks: "What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?"

Harry: "Shake hands."

The principal was trembling.


Ms. Brooks: "What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?"

Harry: "Firetruck."

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the
teacher, "Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last six questions wrong... "
