It appears some just couldn't wait until it became fashionable again with "their circle".

Just because they used to be acceptable doesn’t make even kind of racist jokes okay, … or funny for that matter.

More "white guilt".


No, more Regressive attempts to make racism acceptable by attacking those who will not accept reacism.

  The really good news is that the Baby Boomers are a dying breed.    Most non-Republicans understand that and the younger generationsm minus the Alt-Right / White Nationalists are embracing and accepting the humanity / non-bigotry of everyone.  

   I can hypothesize that the millenials didn't consider race, but they really cared about LGBT et al.   These millenials etc embraced acceptance and that inclusiveness then shifted to include all different races as well, it was a natural expansion.

Racist jokes should remain alive and well?  Because they're such a positive benefit to society.


Where did you get that crazy idea??


The "white guilt" comment of course.

Oh, tell me about it. You can't even call them "darkies" anymore without someone getting upset.  Don't get me started about what happens when you call one "boy". Geez.   If we can't belittle another human being until they lose all sense of worth, what good is it being a white guy, eh?  BTW, the next meeting of the Hitler youth will be next week. Be sure to tell YOUR friends. 

 

 


Ah yes, first white guilt and then Hitler. 


They have changed their brand names...

Many now self-identify as "young republicans", and many of the adults self-identify either as "republicans" - or "nationalilsts"...


And..... the "Alt-Right".

 

It's sad some prefer to belittle those who prefer to live without others hate.  Only mentally healthy people can feel "guilt" or empathy.  Some prefer to attack those who are more emotionally healthy.
