Another day, and another opportunity for professional offence seekers to drop the ‘R’ bomb on another unsuspecting victim.
This time, American talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, has found herself being accused of ‘racism’ (yawn) after tweeting this ‘disgusting’ picture, showing her riding on the back of the worlds fastest man, Usain Bolt…
In a world where political correctness is running riot, even I struggle to understand how anyone with a functioning brain, could possibly find racism in this innocent, light-hearted tweet.
Which ironically, is actually praising a black man for his results on the athletics track…
What a desperately sad world we now live in, that you now face a barrage of self-righteous abuse, simply for praising someone of the opposite race and making a joke of it in the process.
I honestly believe, that soon, even mentioning the word ‘black’ will be deemed ‘hate speech’ and will instead be replaced with the words, ‘slightly different pigment people’ just to be on the safe side.
The bizarre thing in all this, is that a quick search of Twitter reveals, that it is mostly white people who feel most offended on behalf of the black people to whom this tweet was said to have been discriminatory and inflammatory.
From my observations, the ‘slightly different pigment people’ have absolutely no issues whatsoever with Ellen’s tweet? So why then, are all my fellow white folk chiming in and pissing their pants at something that wasn’t even directed at them?
I’m pretty sure that the black population are perfectly capable of responding with ‘outrage’ where necessary themselves….
In fact, I happen to find it more racist that you appear to be suggesting that black people cannot think for themselves and respond appropriately in these situations? You filthy racists…
Perhaps you don’t realize, but what you are actually doing is making living in this world really difficult for everyone.
It is these exaggerated and frankly ridiculous reactions to innocent banter, that makes people afraid to share a joke or an opinion, simply to avoid being on the receiving end of another one of your holier-than-thou scoldings.
What a truly depressing existence you must have, that the sole purpose of your life revolves around searching the internet in a desperate attempt to find something to be offended at. As, let’s be honest, there are far more important things going on in the world to direct your outrage at, than a picture of a talk show host getting piggyback of an athlete…
When I put it like that, surely somewhere in the back of your brain you know that you’re being ridiculous, but are too stubborn to go back and admit that you had a momentary brain fart..
I truly hope so, because I genuinely fear for the future if this ridiculous political correctness continues….
