Fuck, I wasted my FP post for this week criticizing Egoraptor at all points for being a crass charlatan, and now I've found something I wanted to talk about but nobody's going to see it. Oh well, I'll say it anyway.
Yes, the big R word, bitch. STOP USING IT. Not everything that makes fun of someone's skin color, even if it is not your own, is "racist". Seriously, if you saw the N word in a flash, spam or otherwise or even a slave or fried chicken joke and you jumped up to defend my ethnic sensitivities (even if you're some other ethnicity), thank you for thought, but that is not racism. Like in Catoble-whatever-the-fuck-he's-going-b y-these-days's cartoon Sperm Limit Law. I've had people call me racist for having 99% black characters in my flashes.
The reason I bring this up is that in the slow and painful extraction of my head out of my own ass in the past few years, I have started to notice that people jump up to call anything that involves race at all "racist". Namely people on Newgrounds. I was one of them. As oversensitive as I was, if I could get over it, you can too.
Racism is not the use of the word N****R, a fried chicken joke, or a comedic picture of a Sambo-like character, or even a lynching joke in a flash cartoon or in any other form of art. Racism is when some motherfucker wakes up in the morning and decides he's going to catch a black guy walking down the street and beat his ass, because he believes that every n***a is somehow genetically a drain on the economy. A racist is a person who thinks that everyone around him is a racist just because they don't like him or always give him what he wants. Racism does still exist, but at least put it in perspective.
Don't put up with racism that is actually HARMFUL to you, but if it's not going to hurt you or hinder you from getting something you deserve, let the knuckle-draggers think whatever they want to think. Thoughts and words can't physically hurt you; just live your life anyway, you'll be much happier, trust me.
