Because really, are you fucking expecting us to recognize an american TALK-SHOW HOST on first look. Would an american recognize a german or a swiss talk-show host? Are you that dense?

And sorry if I'm getting personal but don't you dare call another country racist because we apparently have to immediatly recognize every foreign celebrity.
Especially not wearing make-up.



As many celebrities do because they don't want to be recognized and mobbed in public.

A few years ago my boss (Who was responsible for one of the biggest franchisees in gaming and lived in an "Uncle Phil" mansion) decided one morning he's quite like to by a one of the new model Porsches. So he drives over to the dealership and asks for a test drive. They refused because "it didnt look like it would be in his price bracket". Just because he didn't look rich due to his old rocker aesthetic of worn jeans and T-shirt and general laid back attitude. He was white, in America.

There's nothing in that story to indicate Opra was refused service because she was black, only the narrative of the writer.
It really comes down to how you're dressed. If she was dressed nicely, then I could see the suspicion, but if she was in casual wear and all on her own, it wouldn't matter what ethnicity she were, no high-end retail employee is showing a $38,000 bag to a person they don't recognize and didn't make any kind of appointment or make themselves and their wealth known in advance.

social pathology is pretty fascinating
This quote from Season 9 episode 9 of Shameless really summed it up for me. They are talking about marketing a liquor that only tastes good to hobos coming up with a competition for who will be the face of Hobo Loco liquor, but it really does sum up a lot of the attitudes we see these days.

“But-but if we use them (Hobos) as influencers, we can crack the Millennial market wide open.
They identify as poor or as victims of a society that doesn't care about them.

Thing is, they're not poor.
They just don't have the money they think they're entitled to, and we think we can capitalize on their complete lack of perspective.
They're self-proclaimed hobos.
We're simply offering them the chance to prove it.“

That he’s black is an irrelevant bit of trivia that she decided to mention for no other reason, one reasonably presumes, but to suggest that his behavior was because of his race. Nepenthe related an encounter with a white person who made an inappropriate comment that she interpreted to be racially offensive, hence the value of highlighting that this utterance came from the mouth of a white person. I s as m not defending Nepenthe’s read of what occurred; I’m merely trying to explain a context which the user who questioned Nepenthe’s “double standards” seemed to have missed.
You dont think, even for a second, that a black man saying to a white woman (assumption) that she has a "nice bootie" isnt because she "has a nice bootie"(for a white girl)?

How is that not a racist thing to say to a non black woman???

Nep is just doing the lashing out thing u do when you have no money and have to blame someone. this is what happens when economic anxiety hits , they lash out at Others. this is one of the main reasons for increases in hate indicents, when times are bad, people know they are unable to do anything about the rich above them, so they strike about below. for SJWs, white men are on the bottom of the totem pole, thus they lash out. for white men, it is illegals and terrorists, hence that decades long nationally normalized behavior. this fantasizing about killing Others they do, it is just the anti-4Chan version of being Online Edgelords. LARPing Thanos and exploring the limits of your ideology. instead of making sick memes or pulling amazing pranks, they just repost shitty MSM articles and regurgitate the talking points back and forth.

most of the Era woke crowd are suffering from some kind of medical or mental disability, meaning they cannot work, are constantly medicated, probably bipolar, and extremely online. so you have these extremely online people that don't have to work so they spend all day being aggressive hyper consumers, and they are constantly slimming their ranks, kicking out the less extremist people from the forums. this results in only the extremists, and the steady stream of trolls/socks, treating the place like toddlers with diarrhea.

it is like throwing a firecracker into a diarrhea factory.

So much so that they don't feel thier posts will be listened to unless they attach thier resume of illnesses and conditions to it.

For all their talk about punching Nazis, I would like ONE person who said they would to provide proof they have.

Just ONE.

There's quite a few factors here though but the main ones;

- Maybe there isn't enough Nazis, even though everyone with a different opinion is according to them
- They're very busy and can't leave the house. Revolution can only be fought from a keyboard.
- Nazis only come out at night and it's past their bedtime.
- The Nazis are all in hiding because of their posts.

Just one, not much to ask. After all it's deemed fine to wish cancer and death on people. Punching a Nazi should be easy.

She didn’t identify herself as white, nor did she add any contextual info that would have clued readers in on why she described his race. Had she, they wouldn’t have banned her. Instead, she just said a black guy touched her ass while his wife was there. That statement alone, without anything else to frame it in, offended enough users to result in a ban. In contrast, Nepenthe gave a reason why she mentioned that the customer was white and contextualized the interaction according to historic patterns of racism from white people towards black women.

Why would that statement offend users?
What’s the offence exactly?

They didn't identify themselves as anything, plus you misquoted them.

Is this you Nepenthe?

After all verbose postings seem to be a trademark.

She doesnt have to identify herself ir add any context. You are CHOSING to inject racism into her comment. She, as a woman, felt that the mans comment was offensive. Maybe she felt it was racially motivated. We dont know, no one asked, because she was banned arbitrarily and never even given a chance to elaborate.

Nepenthe said a very similar thing, though I'm not aware of any stereotypical pattern of white men refusing to hand money to black women but then demanding they be handed money back.

Anyway, you clearly have your opinion and I have mine.

And guess what, NEITHER OF US IS BANNED!!!!!! Now do you think we could have had this many exchanges on era without one of us being banned?

Contemplate this on the Tree of Woe.....

What are you on about? Some girl
(who might be a POC herself) says " a black man told me I have a nice bootie" how does that in any way sound racist? It is SEXIST though. And nepenthe drops race AND gender of her "assailant" as if it matters AT ALL in a retail nightmare thread. It just goes to show she sees racism and sexism in EVERYTHING, totally unaware that maybe sometimes people are just dicks.
Why is that sexist

You will have to ask them. If you visit the thread, you will see the statement immediately criticized by multiple people. It probably struck them as a very odd descriptor that bordered on racism. Omitting it would not have altered her comment in any meaningful fashion, given the thread in which it was made. She fucked up and let her bias slip.

Most black people would raise their eyebrows to her comment. What, exactly, was the purpose of inserting his race? If she said “this Chinese guy touched my ass,” she would have been banned just the same. If a black member replaced “black” or “Chinese” with “white,” in the same kind of sentence, they would have been banned, too. Come on. The race of the other party in what Nepenthe shared was a central part of her story. Coming into that thread and saying “This black guy once touched my ass when he was with his wife” is racist as fuck.
To the bolded, no they wouldn't. In fact, multiple members would start saying the white man was not only harassing the black woman, but oppressing her as well.

The race of the other party wasn't central to Nepenthe's story, as all she was doing was relating a story about a rude customer. Rude customers are common across all races, as are harassers. The difference with Nepenthe is that she explicitly made it a race thing.

Learly, something subconscious, at best. There was no rational cause for her to name his race. Its mention seemed to come from a place of hostility.
Why does that matter?
Who does it impact and why?

You can “call out” asses now?

Sexism, racism, etc. are relative terms. If he had told a man his ass was nice instead, would it have been sexist?
I dunno. If the guy he said it to told him to "fuck off queer", would it be homophobic?

If the guy he said it to was a rape victim, what then?

I can do this all day!

i believe the stereotype is that black men like big asses. if i heard a black dude tell a girl she is hot, 9 out of 10 times she has a nice ass. if i heard him tell her she has a nice butt, then she probably has a giant ass. this is my experience living in Atlanta for the past 20 years.

however this plays into stereotypes. the racist stereotype is that black men are naturally oversexed by genetic design. this was a legally recorded stereotype with a long history of white women being used as honeypots for lynchings. so that leads to another stereotype, that black men are dangerous, should be feared, you do not want to put them near white women. look at Finn being separated from Rey and given a POC love interest in the Last Jedi. everybody still joking all day long about Terrence Howard getting fired and replaced with another black man in the MCU. look at the Justice League, Cyborg is the only black man in the team and he literally has no penis. this is the only way he can be around Wonder Woman in a culture of white supremacy. gay men/women are ok, nonthreatening to the white supremacist, thus they are promoted in woke culture, and in pop culture. this is why they also are the most prominent members of Era. they control the culture. the white man has given them the wheel, because they know they can be turned against the black man. look at what happened to Kevin Hart. he was going to be the first black man to host the Oscars. then he was sacrificed by the LGBT community for saying a joke about his own son. insane. these same people clapped for Harvey Weinstein for decades. IMO they are all full of shit.

Black people take offense to it, which is why she was banned. Her inclusion of it made it seem important that he was black. That’s what they took offense to.
But do you agree that there is anything to take offence too? Can you spell out what?

It’s not like she actively accused a forum member of doing it.

Actually it was a forum game. You had to reply in the thread with a certain line, and out of all those who replied half of them got “snapped” (one month ban, which could be rescinded and then they got the tag coward) and the other half had to do stupid (Weekly) shit to try to save those that were snapped.

Im depressed that I even know this.

Lack men and women who are highly accomplished and still find themselves subject to racial profiling. Even a billionaire like Oprah was treated like a common criminal because of her race when shopping in Switzerland. She has more money than just about every woman on the planet, yet these shopkeepers refused to sell her one of their items because she looked like she couldn’t afford it.


Millionaire athletes who happen to be black are pulled over at gunpoint and suspected of stealing the luxury vehicles they’re driving.

Renowned academics at Harvard are escorted out of their own homes after being accused by neighbors of burglarizing the property.
lol dude, she aint anywhere near the richests chick.

Also dress codes are a thing in wealthy area's. If you dress like a hobo they will not bother with you because they think u are just a poor pleb that wastes their time and even go as far as to actively remove you.

I got pulled over in the netherlands and i am white and cops didn't believe i lived in a neighbourhood with shoes like that. Until i could identify myself.

Go drive through higher end of hollywood streets multiple times with a broken down car that is rusty, people will call the cops on you.

Hell some places even have dress codes u don't dress like they do u are not getting in or u get removed.

That also goes for attitude. Also oprah isn't much of a thing here or was. Nobody would recognize her.

Lol that tweet is backwards to a different joke I knew as a kid.

*Warning it is sexist, if you are a knight who wears white stop reading now.*

Why did God give women legs?
So they don’t leave trails like slugs wherever they go.
Anyone who needs a sexism trigger warning for that probably doesn’t belong on GAF

If you were driving, how could the cops see what shoes you were wearing to pull you over?

They pulled me over because i drove a shit car. They looked at my shoes and basically said yea i wanna see some documents. If i didn't show it they would have culled me on some bullshit charges.
