But the main point it- it was taken from a very racist caricature of black people from back in the day. I`m not saying that the poster deserves to be shot or anything because of it, all I was doing was explaining HOW it was racist. I`m not offended by it, I was just saying why it is offensive in general.
Also, I kind of wish it were longer, cause the beat`s pretty catchy.
lol this is old but still hilarious
It`s really not as racist as people think. Everyone`s just been brainwashed to find racism in everything that has to do with a racial minority.
Honestly, this site confuses me. It can be ignorantly liberal sometimes, like with that girl with the 69 shirt (SHE CAN DO WHAT SHE WANTS! STOP BEING SUCH A PRUDE! 1ST AMENDMENT!!), then switches to conservative when issues of being fair to the races comes up. It`s like many of the people can`t decide what they believe, so they arbitrarily choose to be on the wrong side of the argument.
Also, something that vaguely looks like a swastika unintendedly doesn`t equate to nazism- but an actual swastika, used as a swastika, does.
Again, it has nothing to do with the guy falling down. If it were a guy with dark skin, in a suit or jersey, falling down, most people wouldn`t say it`s racist (there are still the people jumping to claim racism at anything, but I`ll agree they are idiots). But if there were a flash with that same blackface character, with black skin and big red lips, just sitting around, it would still be racist. It`s the character, not the action.
Second of all, it`s a neat little flash. Why do people get so offended at anything that might have to do with race anyway? What makes race so different from everything else? And please, no one give me that bullpoo about how race so and so was oppressed x number of years ago. EVERY race has faced oppression; get over it.
Have happy thoughts, people.
LMAO!!! But it`s all about the class of 09! nevermind...
Seriously, think "guy falling down a mountain" rather than "black guy falling down a mountain."
you don`t know how much imagining that made my day. thank you, good sir.
So yeah, the character itself is racist, whether the flash creator realized it when using it or not. It`s the equivalent of having a Jewish man, wearing a yarmulke, with a HUGE nose and curly sideburns, holding a bag of money. Or a hispanic character with a dirty moustache, smell lines, and falling asleep halfway down the mountain because he`s too lazy.
"Falling Gingerbread Man"
if it was a blue guy, someone would`ve been like "OMG that`s racisism! why isn`t it an ORANGE guy?!" x_x give me a break, this video was just meant to be entertaining. and that it was
But whatever, it`s still hilarious.
If it was a white guy faling down a mountain, you`d have no problem with it.
However one white person would eventually say its racist. Because I suppose everything that is either black or white is portraying racism.
So would you feel more comfortable if it were a white man? I think it would cross the line of safe if the creature exploded or something weird like that. He`s not emitting a blood-curdling scream, he`s yelling like a weirdo. People keep tryin to bring back racism. Why is that?
You seeing this as something racist tells more about you than the maker of this flash.
i suppose you also find mr.hanky racist
...Ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz ootz...
Just picture that shii looped over and over for 9 hours, and a bunch of drugged up kids dancing to it.
This has been on the net for over four years.
Honestly tell me you don`t see a problem here. and let me tell you, anyone who knows anything will tell you this is terribly offensive.
While the animation was very marginally entertaining, and while the person who animated it was probably very proud, and while the music is somewhere slightly better than average, and while I can appreciate the work that had to be done, I just thought I`d say...
I have no idea why this stuff gets on IAB. I am all for having games and animations on here, but why this? There is alot more well-animated, funner, and generally better stuff out there. The same goes for most of the games that come onto IAB. I don`t see why they choose this sort of thing to put on the site. Maybe I`m missing something, and I don`t mean to just complain, but I felt like making my thoughts known.
C`mon, seriously? I think coloring it black was easier than putting just an outline. Besides, it`s not like he exploded at the end of the mountain. He was just upside down, making a "what ever" face. 0.o
Also, since when is IAB politically correct?
And you guys are being brainwashed by the media to catch racism and offensive everywhere. THat Jesus lightswitch could have (and did) offend a lot of people, too, but we still all laughed our asses off.
For those of you making racist comments, how is it a racist portrayal? Other than the color of the drawing. Got it. But that doesn`t exactly hold.
Would it have been better if it was a white drawing falling down? Is reverse racism more acceptable?
In any case, this made me lol...
...why is the kid a blackface? >_>
Your argument really didn`t help any.
I watched it for 2 seconds and immediately closed it because I was so offended.
Nobody else got that?
And then I watched it again.
Yup, looks like it.
