Should We Have a Right to Laugh?

NWV, Cliff Kincaid --

If you think Paul Shanklin’s “Magic Negro” parody is offensive, please take a moment to watch Dave Chappelle’s “Blind White Supremacist” routine and prepare to go through the roof. This episode of adult humor is about a blind black man named Clayton Bigsby who is brought up white and becomes a white supremacist.

Needless to say, Chappelle often takes aim at attitudes about racial matters. He makes liberal use of the “N” word.

If disagreeing with Obama is racist, then logically, disagreement between two people of different (arbitrary) races is racist.

By race crime, I think you meant to say "hate crime"; however; disagreement is a fundamental right Americans have that is reaffirmed by the First Amendment which specifically precludes Congress from passing legislation abridging the freedom of speech. People can say just about anything they please provided it isn't defamatory or a public disclosure of protected or classified information.

Readneck? Lets use politically correct language for this analogy: How is the r-word any less bigoted than the n-word? Everyone knows what both references mean, use of either word is indicative of intolerance and bigotry.

Well said, as usual.
