Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

with one comment

The other day I was on this website lamebook.com and it is about Facebook status that are either funny, lame or just rude. So as I was skimming through looking at some of them there was one guy that posted a lot of racism things about blacks and Hispanics and one of his post were horrific. He had three beer bottles, one that called something Morena(which means black in spanish) and two budlight cans. Well he has the Morena bottle hanging from a rope and the two budlight bottles with a kkk hat on. I just couldn’t believe that people honestly do these things and think it is a joke. I thought we were a little bit more beyond those times but apparently people still have a strong hate towards minorities and think it is okay to joke about them. Luckily for him this website blurs out the persons Facebook picture and name so no one knows who it is posting these status, but let me tell you there were a lot of angry people wanting to figure out this person Facebook. That just really upsets me that someone would do such a thing.

  1. After reading your post, I went on that website and found that actual picture and I was shocked that someone could actually think that was funny. we live in a time where white people feel that we are over such hate that took place in the past and that when jokes like this are seen people don’t think its a big deal because of how far we have came as a society which is not the case. There is alot of pain that many blacks still experience and whoever did that doesn’t understand that pain. Or maybe the person was just racist. It’s very sad because I am more than sure that this won’t be the last time that something like this happens.
