Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

The Amazing Racist

with 2 comments

The other day my friend showed me a video on youtube titled “The Amazing Racist”. As the title suggests the video that i watched in particular was of a man, the racist, going into a predominantly black neighborhood, in a KKK suit. He takes the suit to the dry cleaner where the person behind the counter is black and you can just imagine the reaction. The employee demands that he leave and so he does. The next scene the racist is wearing the KKK suit and walks up to black people that are putting gas at a station and asks if they could give him some gas. He was obviously refused by all the people. In another video, he gathers up some Mexicans and tells them he has work for them. He gathers like 4 or 5 of them and says they can all just hop in the bed if his truck. He doesn’t tell them where they’ll be working and ends up driving for a while (not slowing down for speed bumps, the huge ones not the little nubs; they almost flew out). He finally stops in front of a building, but instead of getting out of his truck the racist starts honking his horn loudly, over and over again. It turns out he took them to the Immigration Services building and of course all of the Mexicans jumped out of the truck and scrambled. This is a serious issue. This video showed me that racism to some people is a joke, something they can get a laugh out of. Some of the videos have over a million views. I was just surprised about what some people think qualifies for funny.

  1. That is just so sad that this guy views racism as a joke, but there are many people out there who share his same “sense of humor”.

  2. Wow this crap makes me so mad. I can not believe someone would have the nerve to do something like that. Why doesn’t he find something more productive to do. Do people really think this is a joke? I mean then white people wonder why minorities are so violent towards them. I understand that one shouldn;t percieve that all whites are racist but really stuff like this makes it hard to believe. These people work hard in this country to have a good life they do not need some good for nothing person ridiculing them. This really makes me sick.
