Ok, before this can of worms gets rolling, let me explain:


I'm sure most of us (if not all) are aware of the video site Vine.com that hosts videos that gotta be 7 seconds or less. I like a lot of vine videos and I follow numerous vine pages on facebook to see the really funny ones. However, more so with Vine than any other site I have noticed that a massive amount of videos are based in racial humor like this or this. Now, I'd be a hypocrite to say that I haven't laughed at videos like these, but I also feel like this kind of humor (which extends to most black comedians as well) is derived from a bunch of white people laughing at black people doing stupid/ridiculous things and saying "LOL YEP THAT'S WHAT THOSE BLACKS ARE LIKE!"

What say you, Pit? Is Vine hurting black people's image?

Maybe in the sense that it gives yet another outlet for easy punchlines? That usually increases any circulation of race/gender/class humor - cut your execution time to several seconds and people go for the offensive

I don't think Vine is racist, it's just a program that allows you to record 7 second videos.

The majority of the videos do seem to be titled "(Race) people be like..", but that's isn't Vine that's the users.

I'd say these days racism isn't as huge of an issue so there's a bit of freedom to poke fun at other people and their stereotypes (when it's just light-hearted fun, of course). I've seen videos where white people are getting paid out and didn't take any offense. Maybe black people would see it differently but whatever, I don't find those racial videos funny and I'm kind of sick of vines in general.

This must have been very recent:

*********************/boards/threads/need-black-dudes-laughing-gif-will-wul.184411919/

There are so many implications here

1. I'm not the only goddamn one who's had a hell of a time trying to find this goddamn thing

2. This being the first to come up means MANY other people thought the same thing.

The first linked video is so true though.

A few summers ago when I lived on campus, this girl did a card trick where you picked a card, put it in the deck, and then slapped it from her fist, and the only remaining card was the one you picked.

I did it, and I was legitimately impressed, and I said, "Whoa, that's amazing"

Then my roommate's friend who was from Africa did it, and he literally fell onto the ground from astonishment

90% of Vine is just stupid people doing stupid things. If you're looking to get offended it's rather easy to but you don't need take yourself so damn seriously. Some stuff is just funny and not meant to be detrimental.

I feel like "racist" humor is just a proof that we've sort of overcome racism. What I mean by that is that nowadays racist jokes aren't racist at all, they're juste jokes you know? Why not laugh about it?

A lot of the jokes are racial and offensive because it's easy/lazy humor.

That being said a lot of it is black people poking fun at stereotypes and some of em making money from their vine notoriety. I can't knock the hustle.
