Wizbang dealing with ebonics satire fallout
Paul from Wizbang, after posting a piece of biting satire on the Ebonics fluff yesterday, is having to defend himself from charges of racism this morning.
What David fails to understand is this:
When a I say (in jest) that black kids are too stupid to learn english it is "hate speech." When a liberal says it for real they are an educator.
Make no doubt about it. The California liberals are telling black kids they are too stupid to learn english. -- They just do it in a politically correct way.
The source of the charges
? David at In Search of Utopia.
You are a disgusting coward who would not dare utter those words, satire or no, in the presence of black people, or for that matter, decent people of any race or creed.
So picking your cotton is out of the question, but god help you if you ever make the mistake of spouting your childish and racist ideology in public.
I guess satire is out of the question, huh?

You will note that most of the comments on both Pauls post and on someones linking on Kos is generating a much more vigorous discussion about Ebonics than about Paul or Wizbang.
I think that was the point (David.)
Q: How many liberals does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Your Eurocentric humor is not funny.
Thanks for the link and the more or less objective analysis. I dont have a problem with Satire. I do have a problem with Cotton Picker jokes. I also noticed I had not added you to my Blogroll, an oversight that has been corrected.
As an asside, one of the reasons I objected to this form of satire, is exactly what happened in the aftermath, some of your white conservative Bretheren coming from Wizbang calling me a nigger and insisting that while I was too fat to be a good cotton picker, that my children would make good ones.
I respect yours and Marty's point of view and conservative slant, but I honestly dont get how you can tolerate people like that.
