Super Mario Bros Facebook Picture Tagging Meme

According to Wikipedia, the most sold video game ever is Super Mario Bros, whether alone or in all its subsequent upgrades. Even if you have doubts in Wikipedia, the numbers are so staggeringly wide in gap that they can’t be wrong in terms of order. Regardless, this Facebook tagging picture meme is for those fans of Super Mario Bros. I didn’t label the characters because if you play the game, you have to know the characters, whether they are friend or foe, what special powers they possess and how you can nullify or put it to use to succeed in the game. If you generally know all that, labeling the names is just wasted space.

Chimp Cartoon is Racist from Ignorance, the Root of Racism

NY Post Chimpanzee Political Cartoon

NY Post Chimpanzee Political Cartoon

A political cartoon appeared in the New York Post on Wednesday of police shooting a chimpanzee dead on the sidewalk, smoking gun standing over it like a criminal just shot dead. The chimp shooting mock the situation where a woman’s chimpanzee mauled another woman.

However, the quote attached to one policeman in the cartoon was “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”

The question was who was the person referenced to be writing the stimulus bill. This was the argument the defenders of the cartoon were using, including its creator, Sean Delonas, and Post editor-in-chief, Col Allan. They were claiming lawmakers and Nancy Pelosi, current Speaker of the US House of Representatives and anybody but President Barack Obama. You can argue on the literal answer and the visible answer which is President Obama constantly in the news talking about it in heading it, but the facts are these.

These people work with connotations to manipulate it to their needs so as to make people laugh, suggesting this and that in their work. They cannot have missed the association between the chimp, ape, whatever you want to call it, and the old stereotypes propagated of black people being more primitive in being such creatures. They damn well know that! To defend it is to be racist.

To say it didn’t mean that or that they didn’t know is ignorant, which is the main cause of racism, and then to deny it when confronted is being consciously and blatantly racist. At least admit it was and then standby it if they want to be stubborn, you know? Don’t plead innocence through ignorance.

Ignorance is not an excuse for racism! There is no excuse, any way!

And if Sean and Col, especially Col since he had the final approval, can’t tell these things would offend people, get out of the business! Part of their job is to know where the limits are. Admit to themselves they suck at what they do and get the hell out! Find another job! Hey, I bet the Klan is recruiting!
