What do you think? If you exaggerate an accent to poke fun at a group of people, does that count as racist, xenophobic, or neither?


I'm not sure whether it is or not. On one hand, accents and biology have zero correlation so that would suggest it's not racist. However, there are other things that aren't strictly related that are racist, like calling a black woman a welfare queen.

Yeah, if I exaggerate a Texas accent it is clearly both racist and xenophobic.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

This site seriously needs to stop revolving around race/racism.

In every other thread these days, there's someone being sarcastically racist, or calling someone else racist, or being a sarcastic prick while subversively calling someone racist, it's ridiculous. Everyone's so far up their own ass about their own benevolence and fair-mindedness.

Yes, cause in my opinion everything is racist. Including you, this thread, and the rest of the pit.

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

I don't think it's either racist or xenophobic. The latter implies that you're scared of foreigners whereas the former implies that you hold prejudicial views based on race. Since when is making fun of someone's accent a form of prejudice or irrational fear? However, is it annoying - yes, because most times, the actual accent sounds nothing like the imitation.

Holding a stereotypical view, however, is a form of ignorance but I don't think it's racist or xenophobic.

As with anything that has to do with comedy, it all relies on the context.

This.

OT Making fun of accents is hilarious but like Antis0cial said depends on the context. Like if you're doing it for jokes its funny but if you mean it in a I guess you call it racist manner then yeah.

Yeah, even the sarcastic stuff is really annoying. I really wish people would just stop mentioning both of these things all the time. It's like a constant contest of who can be more sarcastic while showing how superior they are.

EDIT: said "keep mentioning" when I meant "stop mentioning"

I guess this is some kind of troll/joke thread, but foreign accents are hot and exaggerating them is definitely offensive. If you're not in some kind of theatrical/comedy role regional accents probably are too (boston, southern).

I mean "foreign" from a US perspective haha.


comeoooon, most typical asian accents are hilarious. not all accents were made equal!

Ignoring as in not taking you seriously/ignoring your seriousness.

And lol, are you seriously doing this right now? Did I offend you some time in the past, or something?

Exaggerated accents can be pretty prejudice and hurtful, yeah. I mean, there's never a time that someone puts on an exaggerated accent for something other than making fun of the people who really do (sometimes) talk that way.

Also, I would be happy if we talked about racism less on here but maybe i'd stop finding as many reasons to hate people on this site.

But dude, wouldn't you WANT less reasons to hate people? Going through this site being angry, getting in arguments, or being sarcastic all of the time is tiresome and not a good way to be.

Not saying you're being that way btw, just making that point in general.

Sometimes I feel like the only person on the internet that understands when to use 'prejudice' and 'prejudiced'.

Not racist but usually offensive and annoying. Especially if you don't even have the accent in question

What are you talking about, every time someone tries to do a "New Jersey" accent it is hilarious. Mostly because I do have that accent and it is always wrong.


I know like, one person from New Jersey who doesn't pretty much fit the stereotype haha. Everyone else has been all about it.

I feel like it's always okay to make fun of New Jerseyites, though

The "New Jersey accent" in the media comes from a pretty small area of Hudson county and southern Bergen and Passaic counties. Of course, these are in the north in the suburbs of New York city, so a ton of people live here. But everyone up here can tell the minute differences between accents of this area that I live, the area a bit northwest, and South Jersey.

And I won't object to making fun of it. But I will laugh at it because it will most likely be poorly done and wind up making fun of Staten Islanders more than people actually from New Jersey though.

Yeah, exaggerating an accent definitely means you're scared of foreigners.

No, but this reminded me of how hilarious it is to hear adult americans making fun of foreign accents. "Haha people are struggling to learn this language they don't speak, I'm so reassured about how much of an obese childish douchebag I am in public."


1. you assume i'm american
2. who said anything about struggling?

accents are normal. i was just perplexed that you could find every foreign accent "hot."

my parents have chinese accents, by the way.

If you're going to call someone racist because they do a funny accent in one instance for comedy, you're way too uptight.

Sometimes they can be annoying but they really don't say much about the person doing it, especially if it's for comedy. It's not racist. It doesn't prove that the person genuinely believes other races of people are beneath him/her.

This stuff about claiming everyone is racist is getting ridiculous. I'm really getting annoyed of seeing people talk about what makes people racist as if they know exactly what that person's thought process is.

Most of the people on here who talk about racism all the time aren't doing this because they're trying to help stop the problem of racism, they're just getting off on pointing out how someone is racist or sexist as an excuse to look down on someone while trying to shield themselves from criticism.

It's really evident in the "if you don't like me (or ___ user) then you're a closet racist and you can't accept the truth!!!" comments you see from those same users. They really just like exposing racism or sexism so they can use it as a bullying tactic while they dogpile in to harass other users while placing them on a moral high ground. They think it protects their position of being a douche while simultaneously tricking themselves into thinking they did a good deed.

In all honesty, if you devote a lot of time worrying whether or not what you or other people are doing is racist or not, you're probably a racist in denial.
