...I'm sorry, what Lindsey? I was busy talking to Rainey and Sean so I didn't quite catch that. Maybe if you tell Sara she can relay it to me.

The best piece of advice I ever got was this: "Beauty is no substitute for a sound character".

The thing about racist jokes and why they are wrong is simple. (even though I know that they are considered to be okay among friends)

It's a psychological one, much in the same way that when the US fights wars, it dehumanaizes it's opponents by calling them "gooks" or "nips". The telling of racist jokes gives an underlying social approval to those attitudes, and trust me, there is a kernel of truth in every joke.

Beware dating men who tell wife-beating jokes. At some level, they think that it's perfectly okay to tell these sorts of jokes. And this is not aimed at any of you guys, just watch out for this sort of thing. Because believe me, the same types who hang around college campuses and tell gay jokes are the very ones who are out fag-bashing in the dead of night.

Jokes that tear down other groups of people for mere laughter are just not appropriate. And I wonder what our human condition has degraded to when we find it funny to see someone else fall down, get raped, get busted, etc.

You can tell a lot about a person from the jokes that they tell you. If they can't even tell you one joke, run like hell.

:cry:

Dammit, Thais, you got us. As a group, Queerios goes out and beats up homosexuals twice a month. How'd you peg us? ;)

I get where you're coming from, but it's not that cut-and-dried. People I know who tell a "wife-beating joke".. e.g.
Quote:
Q: What do you tell a woman with two black eyes?
A: Nothin' you ain't already told da bitch twice.

are poking fun, more or less, at the dumb fucks who actually have the attitude expressed in the joke.

One of the best pieces of advice I've ever heard is "Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke."

1. someone asked what was wrong with racist jokes 2. I have a great sense of humor

I hear what you're saying regarding women jokes, but I would still not choose to be with anyone who told them. There are other ways to express disdain for those types. you don't have to spread their propaganda for them.

My favorite sexist joke:

Q. How long does it take an average woman to have an orgasm?
A. Who cares?

David, wondering what the hell an "orgasm" is and how I can get one

How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Two. One to screw it in, and one to RIDE MY RODNEY!

· Challenge sexist language, jokes, and media images that degrade women
Sexist jokes, language and harmful media images help create a climate where forms of violence and abuse against women are accepted. Words that degrade women reflect a society that has historically placed women in a second class position.

http://www.geocities.com/Wellesley/5819/menstop3.html

Stop telling sexist jokes
Many sexist jokes trivialize the hurt and pain women and some men suffer from male violence. Others perpetuate myths about rape and what women and men are really like, or reduce us to the functions of our genitals. Men who tell sexist jokes are usually trying to build themselves up at the expense of women; or with heterosexist jokes, at the expense of gay people. These jokes divide us into factions and stifle communication. When we laugh at these jokes, we laugh nervously, trying to fit in with "the boys." Such male bonding at the expense of women promotes rape. We donÂ’t need a laugh at that cost.

You know what?
Everyone on cast has seen what boys have done to me. Yeah it sucks and I do not promote domestic violence.
But "ride my rodney"? Fucking classic.
If everyone walks around on eggshells because we're afraid of offending someone or promoting something that is a tenet of wrong-doing then it just creates akwardness. Everyone knows there's racial tension. Everyone knows that people do shitty things to one another. So why can't we laugh at it?

Merrin leaves the room, but Karras stays sat on the bed, shivering with both coldness and fear. Regan is asleep.

INTERIOR- MACNEIL HOUSE- SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY- STAIRS- NIGHT

An exhausted Merrin and Karras are sitting in the hallway, on the stairs, outside the bathroom.

KARRAS
Why this girl? It makes no sense...

MERRIN
I think the point is to make us despair... To see ourselves as... animal and ugly... To reject the possibility that God could love us.

MERRIN
Will you excuse me, Damien?

Merrin rises and moves toward the bathroom.

INTERIOR- MACNEIL HOUSE- BATHROOM- NIGHT

Merrin sits on the toilet and takes out his pillbox. He extracts a nitroglycerin tablet and places it under his tongue. He is shaking with fear as he holds his head with exhaustion.

INTERIOR- MACNEIL HOUSE- SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY- NIGHT

Karras moves back toward the bedroom and enters.

INTERIOR- MACNEIL HOUSE- REGAN'S BEDROOM- NIGHT

Karras is shocked to see an instant apparition of his mother, lying on the bed in place of Regan. It vanishes. He moves toward Regan, who is shivering and drenched with sweat.

REGAN/MRS. KARRAS
Dimmy, why you did this to me?

Rainey asked why racist jokes were wrong. I was just trying to answer her. And yes, using humor to overcome personal demons is one of the healthiest things that you can do.

When you're among friends, like in here, it's one thing. My comments about bewaring guys that tell sexist joke was really advice for when you're out there in the real world.
'
and, as with any advice, can be taken with a grain of salt or not at all.

But awkwardness? I'd rather have that then racial tension. Any day. there's tons of stuff to laugh at, why drag yourself down?

Maybe if we stop telling these sorts of jokes, the "awkwardness" will go away and civil rights in this country will really move forward.

This is just my 2 cents.

The best, and sometimes most provocative advice I can ever give to anyone is: GET OVER YOURSELF.

For the rest, read the Sig. :)

Q: How come Santa Anna only took 12000 soldiors to the Alamo?
A: He only had 2 trucks.

Q: What's the difference between a live faggot and a dead faggot?
A: Flirting with a straight guy

Q: Why do black people smell funny?
A: So blind people can hate them too.

Q: How do you know when you're at a gay picnic?
A: All the hot dogs taste like shit!

Q: How many Jews does it take to change a light bulb?

Hey Man I got a black guy in my family tree, he's been hanging there for years.

THats just a few off the top of my head, not the best ones I admit, and im not racist or homophobic (obviously). As a great comic I once saw on comedy centeral once said "Man why ya gotta make it racial? Cuz its funny!)

BECK

WHATS BETTER THAN 10 DEAD BABIES IN A GARBAGE CAN?

You're fucking kidding me, right? That's about as funny as a hare-lip playing bingo, winning bingo, then standing up and shouting, "Bwingwo!"
