What`s racist about the word negro?
If it read "I am a racist!" or something offensive then I`d understand, but obviously, the "magic negro" is an inside joke for these people, and who`s to say they aren`t black?

If you take out context, a lot of things might get misconstrued. Look at context before saying something is racist. I hate that I have a better understanding of the english language than most Americans, and I am french, with english as a second language.

not gonna lie, the "magic negro" will catch anyones eye, funny or not

(I personally find the concept of a magic anything kinda funny, as long as its not supposed to be magic)

RACISM IS DEAD! OBAMA GOT ELECTED
(and I voted for him!)

Seriously people, racism isn`t a problem, prejudice is. (seeing the difference opposed to acting upon it)

lol @ dm2754...I`m just wondering in which world you live in, because in the real world, Obama won the popular vote, buddy. :)

Personally, I`m appalled that Fox would even have the guts to put their ignorance on national television. I`m fine with them having their conservative views and all...but "magic negro"? Wow. That`s the epitome of unclassy and frankly, it`s disturbingly petty. It`s not something I would classify under upholding `journalistic integrity`.

The people in this comment board saying things like "that was funny" understand comedy. The people saying things about how racist/unfunny it was are gay and WAY too sensitive. Besides, why do you care about racism against other races, especially when at least 90% of that race don`t find it offensive in the least.

yup sounds like fox to me. I don`t even think the onion would say this. I wouldn`t be offended if some minor broadcasting would say it, but a major nationwide news broadcasting, who have hundreds of people, then yes I am offended from their lack of professionalism as i would do to any other station.

dm2754: Obama didn`t lose the popular vote at all you lying ignorant moron. Maybe you are thinking of that scumbag Bush.

As for Fox news, they are notorious for some of the most blatant propaganda techniques in news, far more guilty than any other news station. They go beyond bias into propaganda. THAT is why they are hated.

I like, Primtimekin, how you`re from the southern states. your comment does well to reenforce all the negative stereotypes about people from around there.

However, you`re right that comment was stupid, but only because fox would never say that, that would be dumb

"How the hell is FOX even on the air after all their crap?! I mean, you KNOW they must have some censor on the job to catch stuff like that but they still put it on there. So racist and Obama-hating. All their "Listen to the President no matter what because he`s the president" blind obedience for Bush will spit in their faces after Obama`s inauguration. They`re just going to have to learn to deal with it."

It was racist, but I wouldn`t call it Obama-hating. It was a more ignorant sort of racism rather than a hateful sort of racism.

It doesn`t matter what their political party.

There are republican racists, there are democratic racists, there are third party racists.

There are black, white, Asian, Hispanic, European, American, ANYONE can be a racist.

In my opinion, there is nothing a racist could say that is worth more than poo because all racism is is blind hatred.

A racist wants someone to blame for their own problems, many times probloems THEY created themselves, and instead of taking the blame they point the finger at an entire group of people and say, "It is all your fault."

That`s right. It is YOUR fault, African American guy in New Orleans that I have never met. It is YOUR fault Asian man who doesn`t even speak English and has nevere even been NEAR the US. It is everyones fault but your own.

If that isn`t blind, stupid ignorance, I don`t know what is.

Racists are not worth the air that they breath much less the effort it takes me to hit these keys and talk about them.

Think on THAT
