Gross post all around. I get your angle though.
Times change my bud (like you said 20 years) But I appreciate you mixing the Mohammed controversy into this new thing.
Overt, blatant, mean spirited racist humor isnt funny. I understand you LOVE Southpark but stop trying to defend this one. Take the L.
I do not see it as mean spirited racial humor.
But that is the general argument. And I can only speak for myself as a Jewish American. And the major character in the show is an antisemite.
I am never offended because Cartman is the joke. He represents the ass hole in all of us. The opposite of right.
So that is my interperation of the show. None of their attacks on Jews have ever offended me.
I realize that aspects of my religion are silly, and I have a sense of humor when we are attacked by South Park.
And I realize that if I am not an African American, or a Mormon, or a Scientoligist, or a Transgender person, my opinion does not matter.
I just know that when South Park attacks the things I am into, I am able to have a sense of humour about it. I cannot tell everyone else that they should feel the same. But I guess I am not all that empathetic to people with thin skin, because I have no problem being the punchline of a joke.
