Fuck you, whoever started claiming this. Just, FUCK YOu.
I say Claim, because you can only Claim a joke as Racist. Jokes CANNOT be Racist. You have to take a racy joke and then justify the fact that YOU were offended by calling it Racist. I don’t mind you being offended, you have every right to be, but don’t call it racist. There’s a big fucking difference between RACISM and OFFENSIVE JOKE. To even compare the two simply detracts from real issues with Racism.
Don Rickles is not a Racist. You would know that if you knew anything about him dispassionate, uninteresting, ill-informed, politically correct, self-aggrandizing, ZERO. He’s an insult comic. Watch his fucking act. Watch him on any of the classic Dean Martin Roasts. Watch him ROAST Sammy Davis Jr.
I guess I should get to the joke now:
“I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks. President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke.”
If you know Rickles and his act, you know that’s not racist. It’s an offensive joke and, more importantly, it’s funny. It’s DON FUCKING RICKLES. It’s his act. It’s a joke. The most you can say about it is that it’s not funny. You may be offended, but that’s your problem. It’s not even close to Racism. So shut the fuck up and get back to having no passion in your life.
For Fuck’s Sake.
