Screaming Black Dolphins

Please comment--racist and not funny? Racist and funny as hell? No big deal (like Bobby Knight hitting a moronic player) and not funny? No big deal and funny as hell?

Clip is from "Family Guy." You may need a YouTube sign-in.

No worse than Flavor of Love, but genuinely funny. "I'm gwine slap y'all wif mah fin?"

You think that Bobby Knight hitting any player even a 'moronic' player as you called his is ok?

What really got me was how all of the white sports commentators defended him.

Knight needs some serious help but he won't get any as long as people either support his outragous (childish temper tandrums) or keep quite.

No, it isn't OK. I was being facetious...sarcastic? I'm allowed to do that on my blog, since my wife won't let me do it at the dinner table...

Bobby Knight is an asshole who's mistaken the stupid craven enabling he's received all of his career as an affirmation.

As for the player, yes he's a moron. He said it was no big deal. So did his mom. Interesingly I have a friend who's brother, a high school football coach, was fired for doing the very same thing, and there the kid didn't complain either.

And you're right--the only reason some of the sportscasters said anything is simply because they didn't want to be accused of their usual T.O. or Bonds bashing.

Now--watch the clip...

Not that funny

Eh,…what do expect from white folx? While I wouldn’t put it up there as being as insulting and racially derisive as birth of a nation, it definitely reinforces stereotypes. Again though…..what do you really expect from white folx????

Is it offensive? Yup! Should these cats be put in check? Most definitely! Do we need to call Mr. Sharpton and tell him to get a fresh perm, shine up his bullhorn, and meet us out in front of the offices of Twentieth Century Fox? I don’t think it’s that deep. IMHO it shows the status quo (white people showing how they view people of color). No more insulting than the images of us portrayed on the nightly news and definitely no worse than the minstrelsy found on BET. In fact, if there were a Black ADL, I’d have them start with BET!

I think it is very funny. Why? It is no different than watching Jeff Foxworthy tell jokes about rednecks, or Chris Rock tell jokes about black folks. What about Katt Williams? He is a former pimp and that guy is funny as hell. I think that we should not be so sensitive to think that all comedy portraying a segment of our population (animated or otherwise) is blatantly racist, sexist, age-ist or otherwise. Does anyone remember Robin Harris's joke about loving ugly women? That in and of itself was a horrible thing to say. But I betwhen you saw it, you laughed so hard that milk came pouring out of your nose. They are jokes people, plain and simple.

Now, if it were out of context in a different venue say a political news conference, a football game or Law & Order for that matter, then it is fair to scream racist. But come on people, it is the "Family Guy". It is meant to be funny.

seriously, i laughed so god damn hard at this scene. i have friends that sound exactly like those dolphins.
I see people all over the internet comparing this scene to jim crow and i laugh even harder.
The racist portrayals of black men in america from the early films of the 1900's all casted white men to play blacks. the actors emphasized many stereotypes about blacks that racist white families found funny.
The difference is family guy doesn't just make fun of black dolphins, but asians, midgets, mexicans, arabs, women, men, the government, jews, jesus, rednecks, white collar families, Thomas Jefferson, gays, lesbians, god, barbershop quartets, dogs, babies, handicaps, meth addicts, and most of all, it makes fun of the average american family like most sitcoms. the purpose is not to be racist, sexist or intolerant of anybody. it is only there to show us how ridiculous stereotypes can be.

All of you, get a sense of humor... seriously! The name of the show is not the "KKK Guy"... anyone remember the whole "I need a Jew" song? No one is spared, and that is the beauty of it... equal criticism for all :-)

Let us laugh at are stereotypes and drop the political correctness crap. Life is too short to get offended by every damn thing that is said. Don't like it? Don't watch the show! What ever happened to the first ammendment, seriously?

All the more funny because its racist as hell. Racism (and other taboos) can be seriously funny.

Paul said...

I fully agree with the previous comment from anonymous. Every race or people has differences that become really innocuous if we just accept them, embrace them and, yes, laugh at them. This clip is hilarious. It's when we start taking our differences too seriously that everyone starts getting upset. Family guy pokes fun at everybody, whites, blacks, jews and even the disabled, and in so doing, puts us all on the same level, where we all should be.

It's hysterical because it's true, just like most of FG's musings. I live in a predominantly black neighborhood and 95% of the people around me all sound EXACTLY like this.
