If black people said the stuff white people say

If black people said the stuff white people say

(Hat tip: Salon)

OK, granted, making fun of this idiotic video is like shooting fish in a barrel.

(O/T:  For years, I thought that was a stupid analogy.  I envisioned fish swimming in water in a barrel, and it seemed like you could shoot more than once and not hit a fish, but with the first round you would definitely put a hole in the barrel, and then all the water would run out, and nothing even faintly related to your analogy would be proven.  Eventually, I figured out that the barrel must be packed with fish.  This was a long time ago, when I was much younger and hadn’t had time to sort out so many of our common cultural allusions.)

I do think the concept of this video would yield a good riff on Republicans and Democrats (or conservatives and liberals, take your pick).  An actually funny video, that is.  Somebody take that for action, huh?

In the meantime, if there really are any white people out there invading black people’s space in order to stroke their skin and hair — and not while being Helen Keller, or engaging in activities that clearly necessitate such ministrations — just stop it.  That’s all I’m saying.
