what are the odds this guy isn't white? Irreverant!?
re-FYPAll kidding aside, the concept of being "politically correct" is way past the point of all reason. I haven't seen the v-log, but I am willing to stake plenty that DN meant no disrespect and is playing off a streotype that has long been outted as a joke, thereby nullifying it's negative impact, except in the case of certain individuals who can't help but take offense at whatever their tiny brain perceives as an insult (I was going to use the word "slight", but I though that might be too subtle for some of you ;-).

Daniel,Do you know what "Black Face" means? Do you know its history? Do you know how much of a disappointment your latest video blog was? I mean sure, for the average poker playing white male, its probably funny. But if you were doing it as a publicity stunt, you might as well have played russian roulette with a loaded gun. At least that way i wouldnt feel as if you made a racial AND cultural joke out of your 15 minutes of fame per month. I mean, i dont really give a damn if all the white males around the world disagree with me.....Ask Ivey how he really feels about it? Ask your any black male.....Ask Paul Darden, Ask David Williams, go to toronto and see if you can get away with that! Until now, i had nothing but the utmost respect for you.....But now.....you have disappointed me so much. Honestly, i dont think you thought about your actions....And as a poker player, I would have thought you would act differently.....So hungry to make entertainment that you'll make enemies? Was that your intentions? And Caucasian males cant say anything....I mean, lets be real.....You may have a point of view, but how valid is it in this conversation? I mean....did he disrespect you? No, did he imitate you? No.....And Daniel, Im sure you will receive lots of unwanted attention from this, and i would go so far to suggest a TV public apology. I mean....to be honest, that would be the only thing that would help me keep cool in this situation. You should have thought about it before you did it. Now, I throw you in a boat almost as deep as Kramer.....If you dont care, you'll do nothing. If you do care, I'd be suprised.

You were killing this thread six years ago, man. Killing it. Some of the comments in defense of blackface (or whatever, I don't now, I couldn't track the origin of the debate very well), are just...? I seriously thought every single person was joking the entire time. "I'm all for ending most racism, but let's not go overboard guys. NIGGERS GONNA NIG AM I RIGHT?" So stupid. Well done.


A few weeks ago, at work, this guy, (his name is Arthur, 55ish ex-biker with a bum leg and a cane) suggested, very publicly, that he'd love to see Obama be lynched and hanged from a tree. I instantly perma-banned him (it didn't stand because my boss is a tool), and when he asked why, I told him I won't tolerate hate speech. "Hate speech hate speech hate speech what are you talking about? I didn't say no hate speech. I just said I wanta see that man punished for treason!" By... LYNCHING him? and HANGING HIM FROM A TREE? "How is that hate speech? How is that racist?"

Black guy who was listening to the whole thing kinda steams out of the room and comes back about 8 minutes later. Eventually, I get Arthur out of there, and I apologize. "Look, I'm.... I don't know what to say. He's a racist ass. I'm sure he'll be back, but I'll do whatever I can to make his life miserable forever." Guy says it's no big deal, not my fault, etc.

A few minutes later Arthur comes storming back in. Somebody keyed his car and POOPED ON HIS HOOD. Just took a huge dump on the hook of his car. I immediately look over at the black guy, who makes big eyes at me, and taps his nose with his right index finger twice, and goes right back to his hand.

Pretty awesome.

Well, what's missing is I was up on my high horse about racism, mostly as a needle to DN This thread came out right after his Blackface video block, and I thought his black face jamacian video to be the most unintentionally hilarious thing I've ever seen. It's clear he was 100% oblivious to the fact it would be offensive. He's lucky poker celebrity isn't real celebrity or he'd had gotten real heat about that.

I mean, everything I said in this thread was true, but I was laying it on pretty thick because I wanted to add fuel to the black face fire, as is my wont.

Arg. So my "assume everyone is sincere all the time" position is foiled again. Kind of.

well, again, everything I said is true, and I believe it. I just don't have the emotional investment in it, that I showed earlier in the thread. Trolling with the truth is the easiest mode there is.

As far as I can tell, the owner has not been active here in years. What are you worried about?

He pops in now and then to defend himself. Like that time he tilted over a floor ruling and shipped a stack. Or that time we found out he'd literally joined a cult. Those were fun times.
12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night

No on all 4. I don't know if I like Secondcumming or CraigKrill as a new name to post on the regular. I suppose I could take my old moniker back but that would be just no fun at all.

Truthfully, I was drunk when I made the CraigKrill account and for the life of me I don't remember why I chose that name but it connected to something, no ****ing clue at all what.

Or I could just vanish for 6 months again and bathe in pussy some more. I dunno. It's a tough call.

That was pretty bizarre, that being said, he seems to be happy with the choice as it were, and it hasn't seemed to hurt his results in life, unless you count being married or surrounded by people that love you as a life goal, but I don't know. As much as he seems to tweet and stuff it's not like he really says who hes having drinks with or whatever, like he used to back in the day when he would go shopping for clothes and then post all of the items or post who he was at dinner with or whatever. Hes just not an open book like that anymore, or he doesn't seem to be.

Anyway, point is the choice center thing seemed to help? or at least not hurt, and at worse it's organized religion which a lot of people use to get centered, at least this one isn't promising life after death of sorts.

Just my take.
