Affirmation of racism in commedy, have we regressed?
So last night on a friend’s blog post, this comment was shared; HERE
What the white man dIdn’t take from the Native Americans:
-revering the elderly
-concept of sharing
Friar Ryan Always racism. We rever the elderly. Had I not gotten in a car accident we would still be taking care of my 92 year old grandma. Its sad that people are so ready to dump their elders off in a facility and take the easiest way out. But its not just whites that do this and also so-called natives brutally took this land from the first settlers who were Europeans that arrived here 17000 years ago which was 7000 years before the Asians who we now call “natives”
This is our journey to the sacred Lovelock Caves in Lovelock NV. This is the hom…See MoreFriar Ryan My wife and kids are Cherokee. But not even my inlaws are into this bullshit race baiting. The more natives make dumb blanket statements about whites the more they look like racist fuckups. It would be like some racist white person saying. “All natives are drunks”. Either statement. Be it the statement in the OP or that “all natives are drunks” is ignorant and racist.
(un-named) Did anyone realize Sarah Silverman is a comedian?
Friar Ryan Hey racism is really fuxking funny isnt it Steve.
Michael Richards is a comedian that people have ACTUALLY HEARD OF and not many people thought his racist rant was very funny. I dont give a fuck if Sara is a comedian. She is obviously a racist. http://youtu.be/BoLPLsQbdt0

I recently had this discussion with a good friend. Someone who gave our baby boy a hand knitted beenie, and who we supported with moral support and t-shirts during the I-1149 campaign, who is no longer a friend. She started talking about how the natives were peaceful and kind and didn’t have the same problems as the Europeans who would come and “conquer the land”. Ignoring that native american tribes enslaved other tribes and conquered other tribes all throughout their history. This was my response to her;
I grew up in a very racist/Mormon environment and I had to make a stand and break free.
This tattoo is how I made my stand.
