Hahaha. So while many of you look at this topic subject and think: "what the shit?", let me explain.
I was accused of beign a legitimate racist the other day, which, as usual, I found rather amusing. Having the benefit of both caucasian and negroid genetics, I have often thought myself impervious to the label "racist". "I can make fun of both and it's not racist," I thought. And before you mention Mongoloid, I would state that I spent my first years of life in Singapore, the first language I spoke (apparently) was Mandarin, and I spent my primary school years with predominantly Vietnamese and Chinese classmates. Plus, y'know, I love Jackie Chan more than most people.
Having said all that, I spout some hell racist comments on a regular basis. And I played the shit out of the race card throughout my school years. But all have that has been in jest, and I have never been racist with any intent to harm. In terms of the racism I've received, I have had some legitimate threats, and violent action taken against me, due to the slightly off-brown colour of skin. However, my beef today is not with hardcore racists, who I mostly just find funny now, but with people who have the high and mighty attitude to tell me off for what they percieve as racism.
The most recent example being: A white lady told me off for laughing at a joke about black people. Her words were: "How can you laugh like that at your own people?!" I lost it. "My own people?!" What the shit?! Now, I know she intended to spare "us" (and I say "us" because I don't really count as black) lowly black people more persecution, but my problem was, she did it by acknowledging that she and I were different. I laughed becuase that shit was funny, and I'm just another guy who laughs at funny shit. Not a black man who finds black jokes hilarious.
Anyway, I find that the quest to avoid racism is more racist than racism itself. Any thoughts? Hahahaha.
Oh and PS: That black joke was: "Why do people call Black Folks "Mondays"?
The answer should be quite obvious. Thus the reason it's funny. But still racist. If that matters.
