Cultural appropriation? I heard the same thing from some dude at a party regarding white girls twerking. I thought he was joking at first. I just pulled the 50 cent car mock on him and went on to have my typical sexless night.

Should it ever come to it… AMEN.

Within a year, maybe in just a few months, a young soldier with a horrific injury from a bomb blast in Afghanistan will have an operation that has never been performed in the United States: a penis transplant.

The organ will come from a deceased donor, and the surgeons, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, say they expect it to start working in a matter of months, developing urinary function, sensation and, eventually, the ability to have sex.

Unless there's a bunch of stuff from that party that's not shown, I don't think they did anything racist. They're not denigrating typical imagery from other cultures. They're just interpreting it. If those Arab-looking guys had fake bombs strapped to there chests then that would be inappropriate. Still not racist though. Just propagating an intentionally negative image of another culture.

The person who copied these from a private area of Facebook and broadcast them to the world claimed they were indisputably racist. I have a problem with both of the last two words. Claiming your position cannot be disputed is conversational bullying. And the costumes aren't racist in that they don't express an opinion that a specific racial group is inferior to another. But they may be culturally insensitive. But it's not a crime to be insensitive. Most insensitivity isn't out of malice, it's out of ignorance And the best response to ignorance isn't high-volume aggressive accusations of racism, it's information and constructive criticism.

I don't think costumes are necessarily racist, but context is everything. If enough people are offended, then what can you do.

Mickey Rooney made up to look squinty-eyed and acting like a chinaman stereotype is grossly racist. And the Cleveland Indians logo looks like something out of a minstrel show.

I think I am more bothered by insensitive depictions of cultures that lack political power - aboriginals in particular. I don't give a shit if Saudis are mocked. Fuck them.

United overbook flight. No one volunteers seat. Police forcibly remove randomly selected passenger, knocking him unconscious and dragging his (unconscious) down the aile. Passenger had said he was a doctor needing to get to hospital. The seat was apparently given to United employees.

Probably should have offered a few hundred dollars more to get a volunteer instead of grabbing and dragging a passenger off the plane -and losing a billion dollars ($1,000,000,000) in market valuation. This is likely going to turn into a case study into what not to do in business schools, especially with the CEO doubling down in support of the company's actions.
