The Most Racist Cartoon Ever!
Interesting caricature and somewhat racist, but nothing worth obsessing over.

MTV Says Black People Can't Be Racist
Self-serving definitions are pretty much always used by people who are more guilty of a transgression than are the people they criticize.

MojaveMike: MTV used to stand for Music TV, but it's pretty clear from the bullshit in the clips shown in the video you posted that it has now officially changed it's name to Moron TV. Black people are much more racist than white people. White people are rarely racist. You almost never hear racist comments from white people, but it's a routine thing with black people.

Cinco de Mayo: You're Probably Doing It Wrong :roll2:
This is the kind of whining and complaining that just gets annoying. As soon as mainstream Americans of all racial backgrounds embrace a popular Mexican holiday, you get these naysayers who want to criticize and put people down. You can't make them happy. They'll complain that they're left out if mainstream Americans don't celebrate a holiday representing their culture and as soon as mainstream Americans celebrate one, they'll complain that it's culturally insensitive. No matter what, the only thing they know how to do is play the victim card.

Here are a few comments left in response to the lame video:
People who go around telling other people how to celebrate a day off can go fuck themselves, they're annoying regressive leftists, and they are the reason why Trump will be the next president. This is America, a country founded on freedom, so fuck you.

"I don't know how to break it to you America".....Condescend much?? I am Mexican and you do not speak for me. In my opinion, If you are celebrating cinco de mayo YOU ARE DOING IT RIGHT!

Oh please. You're trying to push more of this "cultural appropriation is bad" nonsense again, aren't you? In America, Cinco de Mayo is about Mexican themed food, drink, festivities. Whether or not it is celebrated the same way in it's origin country of Mexico is irrelevant.

Fuck off bitch, you don't speak for Mexicans. You speak for one pretentious, virtue signaling SJW.

mrgreen: Wow! Just wow! That lady in the video you posted is SO SMUG and so incredibly stupid and yet she speaks with such utter and complete confidence. Her little speech is so cringe-worthy and yet she has no clue just how ridiculous she sounds. The thumbs down rate on this video is extremely high, but it should be much higher.

‘Daily Show’ slammed for Texas abortion tweet
It's my experience that hypersensitivity and stupidity often are found together. It's a failure to consider alternative explanations and a tendency to fixate on the first thing that comes to mind with maybe a touch of paranoia, emotionality, or political correctness thrown in.

Who Let The Red Cross Decide What's Cool And Not Cool?
The point of the poster is pool safety. People who obsess over the apparent race of the cartoon characters are the real racists.

Trump Says That Clinton Meme You Saw Wasn't A Star Of David
Taking offense when none is intended is worse than making statements which are actually racist. Why, you ask? It exploits racism in a way which appears to be legitimate, but which actually exploits the entire issue, thereby not only exacerbating the problem, but also breeding resentment on both sides. Do a Google search for sheriff's star and you will see that many are six-pointed. Pretending that this was an anti-Semitic jab is playing the race card in obviously dishonest manner.
