I've seen the full version on TV many times. I don't find it racist...


Context is everything, I guess. There are many elements that could be perceived as racist, some of which even I (a middle class white person) picked up on.

I wasn't privy to the situation, but my guess would be that he was muted and told he'd be unmuted if he apologized, or promised to try to avoid triple posting and he wasn't willing to. Sounds like alma anyway

WTF? I'm not the one who brought his name up in the first place. And offering to burn my house down could be an incentive for others here.

The white wife says out loud something to the effect of "You're going to LOVE this seafood restaurant we're going to, but it can be a tad pricey! And I hopfully we catch chef on a good night!" The black couple then looks at each other and bails out of the car at like 45mph and walks across the street to a Golden Corral.

I tried to find a copy of it online but apparently the original version (which contains some commentary from the black couple after they jump out, something to the effect of "this is more like it!") has been dutifully censored on youtube, so the best I could find was this:

Same here. Probably because I would be with the couple that jumped, not because Golden Corral is what I would call "good food", but because the couple in front were acting like tools. -shrug-

I'm honestly surprised anyone read what he was saying closely enough to be offended and notice he deserved muting.
I only vaguley followed what happened but I think he basically picked an argument with Kao over something he did that got a warning and Kao backed up his warning. I think it was something about triple posting.

I almost wanted to point it out the other day when gbaji triple posted in some thread but I didn't.

I really don't care about the racial issues regarding these shows. If their biggest demographic wants to see white couples and they'll lose more viewers than they'll gain by forcing interracial couples, why should they be forced to do so?

That's pretty much how I saw it. The black couple were being the smart ones, and ditching the couple trying to act 'cool' by going to the special trendy restaraunt that was pricey with an ******* chef (a good chef!).

And for the record, the few times I've gone to Golden Corral, I enjoyed it.

There's a phrase called "picking your battles". That goes for people in authority as well. This is why my husband got bant for calling out my rapist on numerous occasions. The oppression here is like a college campus. Rape and racial discrimination are rampant but discussion of it is squelched by the man.

I understand why the people who are upset by this are upset, but seriously, it's a stupid ******* dating reality show. Why does it matter? If you want to complain about lack of diversity on a show, complain about it for a real show.

I've never seen either of those shows, but I will admit to watching a few episodes here and there of the celebrity versions on VH1. Namely the first Flava Flav and the Tila Tequilia ones. They were both incredibly stupid as well, but at least they were a little entertaining too. I'll admit, sometimes the crazy can be funny as ****.

Some people just need to fish for complements any way they can. Finding racism (or anything, really) where it really isn't, and showing outrage towards it, shows just how against racism you are and how brilliant you are to have seen it.

Thomas Jefferson used to "force interracial couples", if you know what I mean. Why do you hate America and freedom and stuff?

They need same *** options as well, even if the main person doesn't swing that way. Gotta get those viewers tuning in to see the homosexual menace infecting converting seducing those innocent heteros on national T.V.

Now that would be entertaining. Especially if it was a Bachelor show, and the guy was homophobic enough to be incredibly uncomfortable with a guy hitting on him all the time, but not homophobic enough to actually do or say anything about it. That would be hilarious.

If you have an auto-win button I don't think you actually have to pick your battles.

Barkingturtle was, as previously repeatedly stated, banned for this post: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=4&mid=1297199847276642703&page=3&howmany=50#msg1297262092227302410 on top of a long and storied history of similar posts.

If someone raped you, the correct course of action is to contact law enforcement, have a restraining order issued and proceed accordingly. Making accusations or implications that someone on a forum committed a felony criminal offense against you in writing when you are not prepared to take the matter to law enforcement and proceed accordingly is unbelievably stupid for the record.
