    HA HA HA I GET IT, IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE BLACK PEOPLE ARE LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS AMIRITE LOL

    One shitst backlash later:

    [​IMG]

    "I know it's racist but I didn't really mean it so it's okay. But there, I'll be so gracious as to change it."

    [​IMG]

    "Still can't help but point out the disguise is black."


    EDIT: Take three (yup, he edited it again):

    ...I'm sure if he keeps on editing it, he might get there, eventually.

    Meh... I liked the first joke better.

    Sorry to all you politically correct people (not really though), but it's the truth.
    Black guys (and all women under the age of 25 lets say) are typically loud at movies.


    This is like the QQ fest over Scott Adam's (Dilbert) post about a week ago.

    It's the kind of "taboo truth" that most people know deep down but will deny agreeing with and even admitted to thinking because it's not socially acceptable.
    Biggest bit of truth:
    I can't tell you how many times I've gotten a look or a slap or a "Hey!" or any combination there of from a lady friend because I didn't open a door for her.

    I just wish more people had the balls to stand behind what they say, especially after they say it.


    And before someone accuses me otherwise, I am very supportive of Women's Rights. I just know that equality cuts both ways, you can't demand to be treated fairly then complain when you're not treated differently.

    All I'm saying is, if you can't think of a joke without resorting to racial stereotypes, it's time to stop making comics.

    CAD is still relevant? With so many better webcomics out there, I'm surprised anyone still actually reads it.

    Not very many people want to touch this one, eh?
    tl;dr: I think the original comic was just harmless fun. If you can celebrate the differences in everyone and be comfortable enough with them to laugh about it, there's nothing wrong with it. Just keepin' it real.

    *EDIT 1*
    These are the kinds of discussions I had in my cultural studies courses during my university years. Everyone has differing opinions and can only speak for their own experiences. Despite the differences, the discussions have always remained civil in the academic setting. I hope it's possible to have a mature discussion here as well. If anyone is willing to step up to the plate, just know that hate speech will be dealt with in the harshest way.

    *EDIT 2*
    On second thought I guess a discussion about racism here would be hijacking the topic. That isn't my intent. I just wanted to get this off my chest because I couldn't sleep without saying it.

    Here's the point. He didn't put a humorous spin on it, he told it dead straight. "The stereotype is true to the point where a black person not acting according to the stereotype would stand out like a sober Irishman." And by calling all Irishmen drunkards I don't mean to insult any Irishman, I'm just being humorous. And technically I'm not saying they're all alcoholics, I'm just saying it would be extremely hard to find one that wasn't. But I'm just joking so that's fine.

    You might be fine with exchanging quips with your friends and family, but that's because you know each other, you only say jokes like that because you know it won't offend them, and they aren't offended because they know you don't mean anything bad. My friends and I call each other stuff I won't even type here. That doesn't make it okay to yell those things at people in the street.

    I won't argue the accuracy of various stereotypes here, I'll just say that people get offended, and have every right to be offended. So if you're going to make a joke entirely out of a racial stereotype told straight, you should expect some backlash.


    Here's the latest version:

    [​IMG]



    EDIT:
    We could still talk about stereotypes without derailing the thread. That's what it's about, I think.

    The thing about stereotypes is the grain of truth coupled with tons of confirmation bias, silent majority and the fact that the vast majority of people in the world have an above average number of legs. But there's a difference between "there's a statistically significant increase in X within population A" (the truth), "members of population A tend to X" (the way people interpret and percieve that statistic, i.e. the stereotype), and "every single member of population A does X, to the point where a member that doesn't will attract attention and suspicion."

    The statistic is dull and technical and overly politically correct. The stereotype is a gray area that people subscribe to and other people might object to but can't decidedly refute because of said statistic and the aforementioned grain of truth, making it true in general but wrong in most individual cases in particular. You can joke about that one (merely repeating it isn't a joke, though), you can discuss it. The last one is offensive, abusive and downright stupid. And that's the one used in the original comic. Hence the backlash.

    People just need to get over this shit. You can make stereotypical jokes without being racist.

    I bet if the creator was black making a stereotypical joke about white people, no one would say shit.

    a) not if they're derogatory stereotypes, and
    b) you should expect backlash if you do.

    Oh and c), if you're resorting to racial stereotypes, maybe you should stop making comics.

    I said that one already.

    I honestly thought the first one was the funniest.

    Of course, that's not saying much when dealing with CAD. They all suck, the first one just sucks a bit less.

    The sad thing is that stereotype jokes are generally bang on the truth about people. If people don't like them, then they can go smoke a fat one because stereotypes will always exist so long as people persist to continue being a target for it. For instance, it's a stereotype that people from India tend to work in convenience stores in North America, yet people want to cry foul at that stereotype despite the fact that it's true.

    I seen this on reddit.

    I didn't see anything wrong with the first comic. He's just poking fun at a stereotype. I found it quite amusing.

    I was raised in a neighbourhood with people who originated from all places in the world and stereotypical jokes are made all the time. It has made me more tolerant of other races rather than making me intolerant.

    Anybody who gets offended by this is too sensitive.

    Original was way, way funnier.

    I haven't read CAD in the past few months since it stopped being funny, but that's pretty great.
    But of course, he had to be a pansy moron and ruin it.

    Tis why I switched to Sequential Art. Best ever.
