I don't think that's racist, it's just a lousy joke.

Yeah, it's just a bad joke. I wouldn't call her a racist either.

Wow... why does it seem like Rosie gets a pass and someone like Kramer is supposedly "spewing hate that comes from a dark place?" In the context of the situation, Kramer's rant wasn't any more offensive than other comedians' responses to hecklers. Look at a Bill Hicks or a Joe Rogan for examples. People will say, that Richards, himself, said he was wrong in saying what he said but IMO he was forced into admitting he was wrong b/c he was fearful of the true end/ death of his career.

Rosie just marginalized the language(s) of an entire ethnicity. If people are offended by the n-word being used on blacks than they should be offended when someone starts spouting ching chong chang to an Asian. The words may sound funny to one's ears, but it's akin to saying "n****r" to a lot of American Asians. I talked to a friend of mine who is Korean, and he was deeply offended by it and he compared it, to being akin to black face. Try that ching chong chang shit on a group of Asian American guys it and I will guarantee it will engender the same response you would get if you said n****r to a group of black guys. Some of you may think the n- word isn't a big deal, which is fine by me (which is where I agree with Dave C) but there are probably some of you who do but think Rosie's joke was "just a bad joke" but get all hot bothered when someone uses the "n-word." I think, those people need to think about it a little more.

where did Rosie use a slur?

or are we just bashing her because she's a well known leftist?

i hear lisps and effeminate male voice ALL THE TIME when peope impersonate homosexuals, and while i might feel misrepresented, this is far, far, far different from someone calling someone else "faggot."

i laughed at all the "brokeback" parodies.

one marginalized a language.

one used a slur and suggested they would have been lyched.

You don't see a difference?

To Asians, the words "ching chong chang," are slur as weird as it may be. I don't think the n-word is a big deal or the f-word, but people say it should be a big deal b/c of the "history" behind those words... well ching chong chang has that history to Asian Americans.

The difference is that it was in a comedy routine. Seeing other routines from people who go blue, Kramer's "tirade" may have sucked and but wasn't that shocking to me.


Hell, I've heard people say that if Richards had just left it at the lynching joke, he wouldn't have gotten the response he did. It was his use of the n-word that pissed people off.

While I agree that what Rosie said was in poor taste and a bad joke, I have a hunch this is a big part of why people are jumping all over her.

Many of the homophobic comments in that YouTube link of her "tirade" are much more offensive than her racist joke.
