OK, makers of “Bonetown,” you win: we will draw more attention to your racist, sexist, morally depraved video game by writing about it.
“Bonetown” touts itself as “the world’s first action adventure porno video game,” but it’s more like thoughts from the internet’s most ignorant trolls set to animation. You know, the trolls who think racism and sexism have been “solved” so it’s really hilarious to perpetuate stereotypes about minorities and women. It’s unclear what the game part of “Bonetown” actually is, which is actually why it’s scary. Rather than a game, “Bonetown” appears to be more like SecondLife for players who delight in glorifying such ignorance as funny. Keep reading »
Fashion, fashion, fashion. So many strange, racy … racist things have been done in your name that it’s no wonder you’re a disrespected laughingstock to more than half the world. We’ve seen white models appear in blackface in your name. Gisele Bundchen and LeBron James reenact “King Kong” or “Tarzan,” depending on whom you speak to, for Vogue, in your name. And now, Interview magazine has seen fit to publish an editorial, entitled “Let’s Get Lost,” featuring Daria Werbowy against of sea of dark — dark people, fabrics, and atmosphere. Keep reading »
Yesterday on “The Tyra Show,” Tyra talked to the interracial couple who was denied a marriage license by a Louisiana justice of the peace last year. Beth Humphrey, who is white, described how she called about a license for her and Terence McKay, who is black, and the woman she spoke to on the phone asked, “Is this an interracial marriage?” Then they were informed this justice only marries couples of the same race. (The justice, Keith Bardwell, said he was “not a racist” but was only concerned for “the children” — because duh, everyone knows you can’t make interracial babies without getting married first.)
Last week, the interwebs frothed over an email written by a Harvard Law student who is a member of their famed Law Review. The author of said email wrote that she could not rule out “the possibility that African Americans are, on average, genetically predisposed to be less intelligent.” It’s a statement even more extreme than the one that got Larry Summers in deep doo-doo a while back. This email was forwarded to the website Above the Law and while they kept the writer’s name under wraps, other websites began to identify the author as third-year law student Stephanie Grace. (Above, on the left.) Harvard top brass quickly denounced the email and folks started petitioning the judge Grace was set to clerk for to make sure she didn’t get the position.
So how did this whole nasty thing start? Supposedly, with one friend confronting another about sleeping with a third friend’s ex-boyfriend. Keep reading »
Children with Williams syndrome are truly “color blind.” This rare genetic disorder affects the brain and other organs, causing hyper-social activity and unlike most children older than three, these kids don’t show a preference for their own race. According to a new study, children with Williams syndrome have no concept of social anxiety and view blacks, whites, Hispanics, etc. in an equally positive light. While lacking these negative traits might seem positive, children and adults with Williams syndrome are at a greater risk for physical violence and rape because they can’t process social danger signals. I guess everything is a double-edged sword, huh? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Jesse James’ lawyer, Joe Yanny, issued a statement saying that the photo of his client doing the Nazi salute in a Nazi hat was joke and that the hat was a “gag gift” from his Jewish godfather. Additionally, Yanni also said James can’t possibly be a white supremacist because he once spent a month in an Israeli kibbutz. Also, Ted Haggert can’t be a homophobe because, remember, he sucked that guy off that one time. Anyway, Yanni may have an explanation for the Nazi hat and salute, but he didn’t address how James’ totally-not-racist-or-anti-Semitic-wang got inside Michelle “Bombshell” McGee’s white-supremacist-sympathizing-vagina. Was that a joke too? Was she on loan from his Jewish godfather as well? [CNN] Keep reading »
I’ve been dating a guy for about a year, and the relationship is great. I like him a lot, his friends are cool, and he gets along well with mine. We’re both from the area that we live in now, and over the course of things, I’ve brought him to a few family events. He has a great time with most of my extended family, and they like him a lot, too. I’m really good friends with one of his cousins, and I’ve met some other younger members of his family (everything went swimmingly), but unfortunately, he’s been very hesitant to have me meet his mom, even though she lives just a few blocks away from him. I know why, too: she doesn’t like white people. This isn’t me making things up: he’s explained it all. She still asks him when he’ll be getting back together with the girl he dated before me — because she was black. I’d really like to meet her, and I know that I generally make good impressions on parents, but I also don’t want to cause any more stress than the issue is worth. My boyfriend and I are both young, and I don’t expect we’ll be getting married or anything … but it still bugs me that other girls (even platonic friends of ours!) get to be involved in his life in a way that I can’t, because of my race. This is pretty much the only area of our relationship where that fact that we’re interracial has had a negative effect. Do I push the issue to make a point, or should I just let it go? — The White Girlfriend
It must seriously suck to be Sandra Bullock this week. It’s completely awful to find out your husband has been cheating on you, but it’s gotta hurt even more to learn he’s been cheating on you with a neo-Nazi whose tattoo either stands for “White Power” or “Wet P**sy.” Because honestly, isn’t screwing a racist kind of an endorsement of their beliefs? I mean, I dunno about you, but I don’t have sex with white supremacists, because that would be like saying, “Hey, I am going to reward your prejudice with my vagina.” But maybe giving Michelle “Bombshell” McGee a little Vanilla Gorilla love wasn’t such a moral conundrum for Jesse James — because maybe he kind of, sort of shares her beliefs? TMZ says it is currently in negotiations to purchase a two-year-old photo of James also dressed in Nazi regalia, similar to the one of McGee that made the rounds last week. Keep reading »
Like everyone else, I checked out the photos of Jesse James‘ supposed mistress, Michelle McGee. What kind of woman does a guy cheat on Sandra Bullock with? A heavily tattooed one was the answer. Among the tattoos I spotted on McGee, there was a “W” and a “P” on the backs of her legs, and, based on some other tattoos I’ve seen, I immediately thought the initials might represent “White Power.” Now, according to court documents, it turns out “Bombshell” McGee may be a member of the Aryan movement. Details and more pics after the jump. Keep reading »
When Tiger Woods returns to golf this spring in the Masters tournament, he’ll be playing at the Augusta National Golf Club, in Augusta, Georgia, which has historically discriminated against women by never admitting a female member. Nor did Augusta admit an African-American man as a club member until 19-freaking-90. Keep reading »
