After all, it has been decades since white people could feel so free about loving their whiteness, or so openly celebrate whiteness, or talk about how much they relish being white and doing white activities. Recent trends in politics and media have amplified the interlocutors of pro-white sentiments, who certainly always existed but were traditionally somewhat less overtly vocal. It seems like a special Christmas for white people almost every week, courtesy of an extra-caucasian Santa Claus. The new state of affairs has proven very liberating for a lot of white people otherwise damned to silence for far too long
Comedians have a theory about why SNL hired Shane Gillis—and why he won’t last long
Casual racism | Racism. It Stops With Me
I asked a Chinese girl for her number. She said, "Sex! Free sex tonight! Do not be racist; be like Mario. He's an Italian plumber, who was made by the Japanese, speaks English, looks like a Mexican, jumps like a black man, and grabs coins like a Jew! On the roof of a very tall building are four men; one is asian, one is mexican, one is black, and the last one is white.
Are 'white people' jokes racist? Let a fellow white person explain.
Last week, Saturday Night Live announced the hiring of stand-up comic Bowen Yang as one of three new featured players for its forthcoming season. Yang, the child of Chinese immigrants, is the first Asian-American to join the cast of the comedy show, which is starting its 45th season. SNL also announced another, far more controversial new hire: Shane Gillis, who, it was quickly revealed, has a long history of making racist, sexist, and homophobic remarks. Nancherla was speaking on a panel of comedians at the New American Festival in Manhattan, a weekend-long event created by the immigration reform organization New American Economy. When an audience member inquired about the Gillis controversy, the panelists offered their insight into why SNL likely hired Gillis in the first place—and in the process, offered a broader lesson for organizations of all kinds when it comes to ideological diversity.
Casual racism is one form of racism. It refers to conduct involving negative stereotypes or prejudices about people on the basis of race, colour or ethnicity. Examples include jokes, off-handed comments, and exclusion of people from social situations on the basis of race. Some associate racism with a belief in racial superiority or deliberate acts of discrimination. Casual racism concerns not so much a belief in the superiority of races but negative prejudice or stereotypes concerning race.
