Sam, there are certain types of bigotry that are socially and politically acceptable. There are certain types that are not.:)

Don't forget this is Greensboro which has a culture that racial insinuations.

When the skin gets the color mocha, liberal bloggers get livin la Vida Loca.!

Every lib is keen to jump on anything and call it racist.
Neither of those guys look black to me.

"Every lib is keen to jump on anything and call it racist."

Every Lib is keen to jump on anything they can exploit to boost The Agenda, and as we all know, they're NEVER wrong!

Buie should be along any time now to affirm their righteousness.

My first reaction to the cartoon is that it was in poor taste because it equated black people with jail and the dialect seemed to be a poor attempt at Uncle Remus.

However, after reading Hammer's explanation I view it in a totally different light. Hammer's explanation makes the most sense. The criticism of his explanation seems out of line and a poor attempt to pretend that the initial outrage over the original unexplained cartoon is still warranted.

The whole "nobody I know in New York talks like that" routine makes about as much sense as someone from the North drawing a cartoon with rednecks in it saying things like "Co-cola" instead of "Coca Cola", "sebum" instead of "seven", "lot bubs" instead of "light bulbs" and having all of his contemporaries say "nobody I know in the South talks like that". In both cases, such people do exist even if they are the exception.

It's a cartoon, folks. Exaggerated accents are simply another degree of caricature.

In the end, we know that it's somehow all Bill Knight's fault, or the Republican legislature.

Those who are really paying attention will notice that since Republican gains in 2010, there is a deliberate attempt to portray society as meaner and more racist. Redistricting, budget cuts, the hearings before Judge Manning regarding cuts in school funding, the recent outbursts during City Council meetings, etc. All of these are part of a calculated strategy to drive a narrative. Don't be fooled by it and expect a lot more of it.

Greensboro is the Denton of liberal communities.

Sam, tell the truth. Did you post the Bugs Bunny cartoon to illustrate the very accurate analogy between the dialect and type of character to whom it is attached therein and the same linkage claimed by Hammer in the Rhino cartoon?
...Or was it the equally accurate analogy between the screen contents from the 10 t0 13 second mark and the Greensboro white liberal blogosphere regarding matters of race?

I am amazed that anyone mistook that for an attempt at an Amos and Andy accent.

Bubba

"I am amazed that anyone mistook that for an attempt at an Amos and Andy accent."

Oh, they understood perfectly that it wasn't an Amos 'n Andy deal, but they used the reference on purpose. They'll use anything to distort the facts in favor of a worldview agenda talking point like "racisim".

Bubba

"Those who are really paying attention will notice that since Republican gains in 2010, there is a deliberate attempt to portray society as meaner and more racist."


Here's a little perspective from Dr. Sanity:

"Real racism is indeed truly disgusting; and nowhere is it more real and objectively manifest than in the left's politically correct posturing and in the perpetual victimhood scams perpetrated by their compassionate policies--you know, the ones that infantalize other races and ethnicities and keep them 'in their place' so that the truly superior denizens of the political left can manage their lives."

Amen, Bubba,....just AMEN.

I remember when the N&R was promoting the myth espoused by Mitch Johnson and a few others that David Wray was targeting black police officers. The funny thing is that after it became clear that Johnson made it all up and had no evidence to support his allegations (he admitted this when forced to do so under oath), the N&R never offered any kind of apology or retraction and lost interest in the story. See also "Ethan Feinsilver".

I thought that was pretty "racist", too.

Will you start a blog about that?

Bubba

"Will you start a blog about that?"

Yeah, Lorraine, will you?
