PC madness: Steve Martin’s Lasonia joke offensive to Blacks

Someone wrote, "Is this how you spell lasonia?" to which Martin replied: "It depends. Are you in an African-American neighborhood or at an Italian restaurant." CNN

Calling attention to anything related to Blacks is un-PC. A no-no. You must not even mention Black neighborhoods or Black names, even in neutral ways. Even mentioning Black overwhelming superiority in the 100 meter dash can be offensive to Blacks. Never offensive to the inferior white runners.

"I knew of the name Lasonia. I did not make it up, nor do I find it funny. So to me the answer was either Lasonia (with a capital), or Lasagna, depending on what you meant. That they sounded alike in this rare and particular context struck me as funny. That was the joke," he wrote on his website.

 

Justine Sacco, who worked for IAC – a leading media company, caused an internet storm over the weekend after tweeting: "Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white." Source

Justine Sacco was fired. Oversensitivity has no bounds. What is the big crime here? Have be gotten crazy? Returning to Steve Martin:

"When the tweet went out, I saw some negative comments and immediately deleted the tweet and apologized. I gathered the perception was that I was making fun of African American names."  CNN

Nowadays everyone is SENSITIVE to slightest innuendo. We have no serious life threatening problems, so we all minorities were trained to become OVERSENSITIVE.

The story didn’t stop there.

Martin said his tweet was picked up and quoted, inaccurately, by various outlets, including Salon CNN

Typical.

PC loves to distort, lie, make things look worse then they were.

For example, in the George Zimmermann case, CBS cut the 911 call as to make Zimmerman sound racist. And the misleading photos of a 12 year old little Trayvon child and a Zimmermann in prison garb and 50 lbs. heavier. Or the lies about domestic violence or the Rind study.

"It depends. Are you in an African-American restaurant or at an Italian restaurant," Salon said Martin wrote, suggesting he meant to imply that African-American restaurants can’t spell "lasagna."

  1. Steve Martin did not say this. It is a lie, a false citation.
  2. what is the problem if someone thinks Blacks can not spell? Or if someone says so. Even if it were totally wrong?
  3. What makes it more offensive it that it is true. Race and iq debate is un-pc, verboten. In spite of half a century of head start and other efforts Blacks underperform in school, while Vietnamese, Chinese, Koreans, and Jews vastly outperform  Whites.

South Africa, cultivated by Whites, taken over by Black population explosion

 

Bill R. writes:

I agree with Roger. Apartheid was not evil, unless you want to call it a “necessary evil” like police and government. As Laura said, what other choice did they have? Whites have been in South Africa for three and a half centuries. The first European settlers found most of the land almost entirely uninhabited, so it can’t even be said of South Africa what so many liberals and multiculturalists are so fond of saying of America, that white Europeans stole it from some other race that was already there. Most blacks came to South Africa later from other parts of Africa, and especially in recent times they came for the most obvious of reasons; because it was not only the continent’s only First World nation but, in fact, the only one that wasn’t an out-and-out stinking, festering hellhole.

I am not an expert on African history. So I just quote this interesting comment, without even being able to guarantee that it is right.

Certainly, the African Black population grew enormously, in the last 50 or 100 years,  probably much more then ten-fold. Just by large numbers of offspring, That population explosion was due to by white medicine and white agriculture technology. Thus  an unprecedented number of offspring survived and have offspring again.

And these Africans then demanded space in the land that had been cultured and developed by White settlers, over three centuries.

I admit, I myself fall prey to the PC fallacy that any Black from anywhere can lay claim on any African land as if it were his. But if it was settled and developed by White Boers over three centuries?

And then, in Europe, it will be the same. The African and Muslim immigrants will multiply in 60 years to form the majority (Thilo Sarrazin), Nobody will think that Whites have a special right in Europe. These populations will want to take over Europe , a rich paradise, created by White culture.

And, unfortunately, Black culture will not be able to maintain white living standards. Why? Read my 50 articls on race and iq!

 

Liberals never tire of pointing out the lower standard of living of South African blacks compared to South African whites during apartheid. But they never compare the black South African standard of living to that of blacks in other parts of Africa during the same time. In fact, already in South Africa, thanks to twenty years of black rule, even blacks there now experience what has been called “apartheid nostalgia.”

It is the same in the USA. Detroit is a hell hole, where no White discriminates against Blacks. Blacks do it to themselves.

They vote for a corrupt police chief, corrupt and incompetent city council, corrupt and incompetent major. And they themselves have low education, low discipline, high crime and destroy their own neighborhood.

They all are on welfare, and don’t create enough to have a tax base. They have corrupt Unions and government that spends too much, unproductively.

And then it is the White’s fault, because 200 years ago some white slavers bought Black slaves from Black African slavers.

Whites had every right and every good reason (as they do anywhere else in the world, for that matter; they may not have the will but they have the moral right) to keep themselves separate from blacks and to prevent, in the case of South Africa, their vastly greater numerical participation in the political process from promptly dispossessing whites of what they had built and what belonged to them.   Source

What do do: a population grows 10 fold over 60 years. [I did not verify the numbers] Your own population barely increases. How to keep the growing poor, low skill population from taking over?

And, as you can see from Zimbabwe, or Detroit: the Black population will NOT do better without Whites. On the contrary. Whites create a richer, more civilized environment and Blacks are the first to profit.

Nelson Mandela – worse than Apartheid?

 

Nelson Mandela is universally revered.

So much that joking about him leads to arrest in Britain.

Arrested Because He Joked About Mandela: Police Hold Shopkeeper for Eight Hours, Take His DNA and Seize His Computer | Daily Mail

South Africa has one of the highest violent crime rates in the world.

Better off Under Apartheid
60% of South Africans: ‘Country Better run under Apartheid!’; ANC

Dec 12, 2009 – Most South Africans, both black and white, believe the country was better run of "apartheid nostalgia" as South Africa grapples with high crime rates, …. HRC statistics, 21,000 people died in political violence in South Africa

Video A media blackout, world wide, hides black on white murder in South Africa. The same happens in the USA:

Mandela’s radicalism often ignored by Western admirers Aljazeera America December 6, 2013

"If you talk to many American liberals, they think Mandela was Martin Luther King," Ellis said. "If you say, ‘No, Mandela started a guerrilla army, he was a communist, he did this, he did that,’ they just don’t get it. They don’t know what you’re talking about."

Yet even later, as South African president from 1994 to 1999, Mandela would irk his friends in the West by expressing solidarity with leaders such as Cuba’s Castro and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, as well as finding common cause with the Palestinians in their struggle for statehood.

 

Our falsified politically correct science and policy do not even help the disadvantaged. Blacks are in full control of Detroit, have the major, police chief. And Detroit is one of the most corrupt and inept cities in the USA. 

Crime and poverty in Africa on the rise

(Reuters) – In a country cursed by one of the world’s highest murder rates, being a white farmer makes a violent death an even higher risk.

Whether attacks have been motivated by race or robbery, a rising death rate from rural homicides is drawing attention to the lack of change on South Africa’s farms nearly two decades after the end of apartheid – and to the tensions burgeoning over enduring racial inequality.

Some of South Africa’s predominantly white commercial farmers go as far as to brand the farm killings a genocide.

On the other side of the divide, populists are seizing on the discontent among the black majority to demand a forced redistribution of white-owned farms along the lines of neighbouring Zimbabwe. Reuters

Zimbabwe was a grain exporting bread basket before the land distribution to Blacks
