People are so sensitive and obsessed with political correctness in the North American culture these days that one can’t talk about black and fat without any backlash and inevitably censorsing any comments about these two topics.
Whenever someone says anything black, it’s immediately taken as pejorative and racist. It’s okay to identify the store salesman as “that thin blond guy” but people assume you’re a racist and irrespectful if you say “that chubby black guy.” Hence you find every way to convey the same message without ever saying ‘fat’ and ‘black,’ so you’d hear censored descriptions such as “that guy in the white t-shirt in the far corner.” Good gracious, it’s a description. Quit being so sensitive.
What really brought me to this rant is the controversy over musician John Mayer’s preference for white woman in a recent interview with Playboy magazine causing a ruckus that he’s a racist.
PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?
MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.
One’s sexual preference does not mean they’re racist! If it was, then we should start considering Whites who prefer Asians reverse racists, those who only pull a raging boner for long hair girls hairist, or those who love hot slender bodies body facists.
Sexual preferences are a personal taste just like some prefer those who are tall, fat or have big eyes. Racism is hatred of another race and belief that those of another race have inherent differences making them inferior. The two are DIFFERENT. My belief is that as long as you don’t think people of another race are any less of a person or inferior because of some physical attribute, it’s not discrimination.
So quit being so sensitive!
