I'm surprised i haven't seen this already, if it has been done sorry i searchbar'd.

This thread is more geared towards americans, if you have seen the Hey Hey It's Saturday "Jackson Jive" skit from the Red Faces segment, do you think it is offensive?
Personally i think it was done in good nature, they were just looking for a laugh.
Also do other countries find that Australia is more racist than their own country?


For those of you who haven't seen it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LjFS4k0jek

don't you all remember?

during WW 2 when all the jews were leaving Europe
Australia was seen as a place they could go, the government basically said this

"We dont have a Jewish problem, and we dont want one"

No jews were allowed to enter during that time

racist???

no, sorry I'm not 70 years old

to above lol coincidentally i'm watching dave chappelle right now. it seems that a black man can get away with saying things that may seem racist but if a white man says the same thing he is condemned, i dont understand it.

Well during WWII before America got into the war, jews tried to enter our harbors. But we turned them down because we did not want to get into the war.

How can you claim a country racist? That's as rediculous as asking whether a country is homosexual. But, given the context of the question. My answer is no, other countries don't think Australia racist. However when people emigrate to Australia, alot of ignorant and self-righteous people tend to take the piss. Usually thinking it's harmless. Racism is never harmless Australia!

Overhyped but a little racey (excuse the pun) for primetime IMO. People are just looking for things to critique.

Nope, only thing we ever learned about Australia is that British prisoners got sent there (And that was back in like 7th grade)

I never think about australia. Half the time I forget it exists.

Oh but I do think you stole the name from Austria. You just added an al in there. Probably because one of the founder's name was al.

I have more racial prejudice against me in the almost two years I've been living here than the 16 years I lived in NZ. Just sayin'.

TBH, I always thought Australia was a racist country. So, I'm not surprised that they allow something like that on TV.


Isn't Australia like a country build by criminals?

Damn it I said that already

Now sit in the corner

I think in order of racist contenents it goes: Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, South America.
North America is excluded because it is full of Canadians, who are too segragated to be racist, mexicans, who are too busy trying to cross the border, and Americans, who are so much better than you that they can never be racist.

(see what I did there?)

In this country i think there are 3 kinds of people:

1. those who are openly racist

2. those you dont give a **** about race and think political correctness has gone to
far (i like to think i fit under this banner)

3. people who jump at the mere mention of a racist comment and verbally attack others who are racist.

so yes some Australians are racist, but the group who performed the "Jackson Jive" were just looking for a laugh, it was not done to make fun of black people or anything close to that, it was just meant to be entertaining.
