And what's Fonzie like?
Before he jumped the shark, anyway?
And yes, sorry to tell you, but I have actually seen black people in person. Yep, right up close and in the flesh. Even had friendships with some. Even went to a - gasp - black doctor once! Even worked for a black doctor once. Holy moly, I even own books written by black people like bell hooks. Shocker!
It's never crossed my mind to say to people tossing accusations of racism my way that I have white friends. It sounds like a stupid thing to say in any event.
Never feel the need to state, "I am not a racist," either. What the hell would that prove?
I'm from Chicago, so most of the doctors I went to were from Southeast Asia. Chicago Hope and E.R. take place in some parallel universe.
Are any of the black people here even capable saying how many white people they've worked for? I never kept track, to be honest.
Any of the women here keep track of the number of men they worked for?
How about the men who've had women managers? Ah, thought that one would work.
Books written by white people? Um, again, don't really think about it that much when I buy or read the things.
And yet, I'm not the one claiming not to notice race.
Hey, ho, funny old life.
Meanwhile, in the backwoods, GOCinAtlanta makes a serious tactical error:
Aaron's the guy over at uppity-negro who thinks all of us warbloggers are, in his words, 'racist motherfuckers'. I was talking to my sister last night about his comments and what he called Andrea but when I pointed my Netscape 4.7 browser at his site, it, and I am not making this up, got This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. I know there's a joke in there somewhere. He took exception to some of the things I said about him, mainly that he was a racist. However, I did not call him an MF. He was miffed that I didn't have a comment function on my blog. That's what my e-mail address is for. I would gladly publish anything negative that he may send me. So, if anyone knows Aaron, pass on these instructions.
- If your e-mail program is Outlook Express, select Compose Message.
- Type in your vitriolic (if you don't know what that means, find a dictionary) comments.
- Click on Send.
I've mentioned that I usually run Linux, right?
Outlook Express? Oh, them's fighting words, bitch. Even when I go into Windows, I use Mozilla's mail program. Or Eudora, if I'm in a goofy mood. But Outlook Express? Fuck that noise.
I've noted that Netscape 4.x users are fucked and abandoned, although normally the site just looks totally effed up; no clue why his
mom's sister's computer crashed.
Yes, I'm taking liberties with that remark; he didn't say whose computer it was, just that he was showing it to her. Shut up.
Randolph, one of my readers, and a source of information, told me [Aaron] was a real racist MF
Ok, technically Denny himself did not call me an MF. He was merely relaying information.
No comments section on his site, naturally
Wouldn't call that miffed. Bemused, maybe.
Hey, ho, funny old life.
Update 8/15: What is it with these people?
Earlier, Chuckles said:
Well, let's suppose that Aaron wants to go diving. He might not have time to steal a decent computer. (And let the hate mail begin.)
Ah. This must be that "political incorrectness" I've heard so much about.
At least I ain't using Netscape 4.7 and Outlook Express, luser.
He also added:
In case Aaron is reading, the vernacular is the everyday use of language. The spoken or narrative as opposed to the literary. Oh, wait a minute. He's probably watching Star Trek reruns and commenting on how the black guys are always the ones who get killed.
I've mentioned the linguistics degree, right?
Tom Lehrer notwithstanding, satire is still possible. Hell, Jeff got a laugh out of me for making fun of the worn-out catchphrases I toss around with abandon. But that's just. . . sad.
