>>99833393>The thing about offending white people is that to defend them, those in team "I don't care who I offend, I aim to offend to protect my freedom of speech" would have to admit that being offended sucks.
Not the dude you're replying to, but I feel like that's not exactly the issue.
Everyone can agree that being targeted because of your race or ethnicity can suck, even if it is a joke. It's perfectly okay to not be able to handle some bants, not everyone has the same sense of humor to just let shit like that roll off of em.
But the conflict comes in with the response to that; you've got people saying "this thing hurt my feelings, so we should change it to cater to me".>"Call me a killjoy, but I think that because this is not to my taste, no one else should be able to enjoy it."
You've got people saying that they should write Apu out of the show because of this; I can sympathize with some poor little Indian kid who got bullied by some 3rd grade shitheads, but anyone who thinks their personal experience is grounds for censoring something for everyone can fuck right off.
You see it a lot in video games too, like back when Tracer's ass triggered all those social justice types; it's like, if a show/game/movie's art direction, sense of humor, plot, or characters offends you so much, have you ever considered the possibility that maybe it wasn't made for you, and thus has no obligation to cater to your specific needs?
Same as all those faggots complaining how Black Panther didn't have any white people in it despite mainly taking place in fucking Africa. If you have the capacity to make a full-on documentary like this guy did, and the "social issue" you choose to focus on, with ALL the shit that's happening in the world, is how you don't like Apu from the fucking Simpsons, then congratulations, you officially have no real problems.
Sorry this kinda turned into a tangent, but yeah, just my two cents.
