    Reducto ad absurdum much, Mr. Godwin? :jayzus:

    Am I perfect? No, neither are you all. Do I make mistakes? Yup. So do you. Do I have a fucked up sense of humor? So I'm told, I don't care, so do a lot of actual comedians. Do I keep trying to improve? All the time, but some assholes keep throwing perceived past mistakes in my face.

    Not shunning racists is not improvement, it's doubling down on the mistake.

    Yes, making a joke out of the attempt to identify a different perspective than whitey McWhiteface is racist. I am glad you admit your racism is funny to you, but some of the rest of us are tired of the abusive joke. It isn't funny anymore, and you are being a racist dick when saying it. If that is not the desired effect you might want to not say racist shit. No one forced you to do that but your own racist self.

    Are you actively racist, or working to learn otherwise?

    If Forbs is calling out his racist buds and working to change them, fine. If he's five years down the line just keeping quiet every time they mutter the N-word because he likes their take on Airfix, fuck him.

    I have to consciously subdue impulses from time to time. I try to correct others, wife mostly. But I'm inclined to let a lot ride.

    I live in the deep south.

    Well, that's more self-preservation. Speak out too much down there, your own ass is grass.

    Forbs may have the same issue. But he's not in the South on here, and neither are you.

    Do you idiots do anything but find reasons to insult each other?
    Whatever the topic is, threads always just end up with y'all insulting other members back and forth for pages.
    Is there an actual point to this message board any more?

    Funny. You didn’t mind when the board was the same way but with a conservative viewpoint.

    I was just confused by the insinuation that you were friends with racists. Is it not true?

    I do know some democrats who hate white people. :P
    No, I think the humorless twat was referring to something like me conversing with Oldfella or something.
    What was this thread about again?

    Dunno what version of Wordforge you've been posting on for the twenty years, but this is what the board's always been. We just had staff that was willing to turn a blind eye when Jewish posters got called k*kes and when creepers go harrassing women posters for more boob pics.

    Storm coming out as a full blown white supremacist should've been a wake up call to the toxicity this board has fostered. Mewa and Vandy were calling this shit out in the mid 2000s. As Jenee said, you were pretty quiet about the fights back when the conservatives like Sokar were running the joint. :brood:

    One thing I have noticed is you make a comment about a black woman's bald head and all the comics are talking about how it was mean but comedians are going to joke.

    We all find out that Bruce Willis has Aphasia and everyone is all I am sorry Mr. Willis for giving you a Razzie and criticizing your bad movies, please don't kill me. You were really awesome and never made a bomb.

    Someone pointed out that if Rock had said that Jada just got back from protecting Wakanda, that would have been a better, and more topical, joke than the one he made referencing a movie that was released 25 years ago.

    I didn't say that he wouldn't have gotten slapped, I just said that the joke would have been better.

    I don't know. Those Wakanda chicks were bad ass and sexy as fuck. They were also african and heroic. That might have gone over a bit better than comparing her to a character who was considered a little manly and unattractive for going along with the shaved head style of the marines.

    \I just see it as a nuance that could have brought a more positive spin on the joke. GI Jane was not a movie known for having a female black warrior pride factor to it.

    Nah, G.I. Jane 2 is a better burn because it has a certain direct-to-video low-rent feel to it. A Marvel film role would be more prestigious; it would also be less familiar to the academy members.
