Why are Racists so dissapointed when someone calls them a Racist?
Do they honestly believe anyone is fooled?
Incase you missed it. The Guardian released an article that basically called Amy Schumer out for her racial bias (click to read it), she then chose to defend herself, quit poorly at that via twitter (click to read that trash). The internet has since chosen to crucify Amy Schumer and for good reason. She’s a racist whose only defense was to say – I’m a comic, a feminist ( I’m using that term only cause she said she is ) and more people are laughing at my jokes. Clearly she just said I’m racist and I don’t care.
By the way, all the racists love her now. She’s made lifelong best friends off this shit. News outlets have chosen to defend her and It’s just not working.
Watching her rise to fame it’s clear that she only got so far off the backs of those people she chose to put down, by using them as a literal stepping stone. She gained herself a new audience with her brand of hate and rode that wave to stardom. Lifted up by the invisible hand of the millions of closeted racists that enjoy watching her blatantly say what they wish they could, but won’t, for fear of being punched in the face by a Black or Latino person. There’s no fooling people into thinking of it in any other way. To promote racist thinking under the guise of comedy has pushed many people from the shitty world of low-paying stand-up gigs to nice comfy offices and a staff of writers. To dip into the accounts of other racist fucks and push that filth to an even greater audience. ( Is that too clear? )
What irks me is that she clearly feels vilified. She’s all ‘Why me’ like ‘Why now’ – and I’m thinking Who fucking cares. If you’re a racist in 2015 you should expect this. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Why not just own it? Be trampled for the hate you chose to so clearly show off. You threw it in everyone’s face and you didn’t expect anything to get on your lily-white shirt. Fuck You.
When we have an asswipe like Donald Trump running for President and saying the exact same things she is, why shouldn’t anyone have a problem with it? ‘Cause she’s a comic? (I bet Donald Trump’s gonna site Amy Schumer as his source for why he thinks Mexican’s are Rapists). People like Amy Schumer are the reason 2015 is beginning to feel like we’ve hopped into a time machine. Like all the progress thus far has been for not. Reading how many ignorant fucks choose to pat her on the back and give her the ‘you go girl’ is sickening. The it’s just jokes argument is tired and there’s a new generation of us who just wont buy it. Fuck who’s selling.
