It AMAZES me how Southpark manages to get away with jokes like this.

Check it out.

Okay... now after watching the video... be honest and tell me...

Anyway, I agree with CNN. I mean that episode was good because they actually manage to educate America about the N word. I guess this time it's more then a joke eh. Thats the best thing about south park. they get to get away with anything and everything.

simple cheryl, ur new here aren't you?

hao said...

I made that mistake when I first saw that vid... hehe...

agree with simple cheryl.

and ya, i made the same mistake but was thinking before the ending how south park can get away with that.

mae said...

"simple cheryl, ur new here aren't you?"
aww feiness, you've played the first game too, dont be shy now :P

anyway, this same concept was used in a scrubs episode before too.
exchanging the word nigger for nagger to create awareness. its good in a way, but still if majority of the african american community won't stop using that word on themselves, how can they expect the rest of the united states to stop..its not so much discrimination now, its uncommon to see racial fascism at all now. and thats good hehe.

William Leong said...

question: is it REALLY that bad a word that you REALLY REALLY cant say it in front of them african americans?

its damn degrading lah, cause thats what the white people called the african american slaves last time..its as bad as the term 'chink' is to chinese.
the thing is, so many of the youths in the african american community use the term as a slang on each other and they dont find that wrong, then when someone from another race uses it in front of them, even if they arent being racist, the same youths will get worked up and be angry at the user.

Jackson said...

Guilty! Although I did get the right word after a few seconds... It's just that the first word comes into mind instantly, since it's been way overused

I gotta agree with Andrew man. You don't even have to go to the US to see how they use it on themselves all the time. Just listen to rap/hiphop music and lalala it's everywhere in their songs. it's just good that nobody (from the vids) have taken offense. Oh and I made the same mistake too, but I got it right in the end okay?!?!? :p

willy: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA don't be so direct laaaa wei. make me shy only seeing how I always spam in the rare occasion I'm first.

American sometimes are being too politically correct till the extent of them being politically wrong. You just got to chill.

William Leong said...

suicidal, hahha, i cant help it. coz its been such a long ongoing 'game' it just seems odd that someone suddenly comment about it.

andrew, chink? i have no idea what that means. never heard of it before and thus me no feel to that word. am i supposed to get angry at the usage of that word? oh ok, grrrrr..... im angry... grrrrr!

oh it's a game eh? I guess I didn't notice it before. Nope I'm not new here. I read boss stewie's blog for some time. I do randomly write comments but I guess I never notice the 1st few comments.


William Leong said...

hahhaa, its been like 4-5 months d. great that u know now. bigger crowd, more fun ;)

William Leong said...

and btw, did u know there's a 'LAST game' as well? works the same way ;)


her Fei-ness said...

It's insulting if others use the N word. but it's just a word if they use it themselves.

Now that's discrimination.

btw,thanks william for reminding me.

From someone living in the black central hoodstate of USA ...

Yes, you can say it in front of them, but only if you're black. If not, then I suggest you don't or you might get shot. Stick to safe words like
"Bro" "Girlfriend" "Homeboy" ahahaha ... "Dawg"

On WoW we have a race called naga (which are fish people of a sort) and we end up using that word instead. Going around saying "What's up my naga?!" On a side note, I call my husband "Cracka" all the time :)

But anyway, you don't want people walking around pointing at you and calling you Yellow Demons and glaring right? That's what happened to the black people last time so I guess they have every right to be sensitive.

pj said...

haha i guessed niggers first....then naggers came next....and i'm like 'whooooooooops..' lol
