Let us not be afraid to ask the tough questions
 
Is Amish Paradise by Weird Al Yankovic racist?



Tchocky 02-08-2018 10:35 PM

No.

Except for that one line where he calls a bunch of Amish folks the n word it's really not.

redbreegull 02-08-2018 10:41 PM

but he's dressing up in their cultural uniform and making jokes about the 5 things people know about amish people. also the amish are not hostile towards technology but the video depicts them destroying electronics, vinyl records, and telephones. also he conflates amish and mennonites. not the same.

redbreegull 02-08-2018 10:42 PM

also he calls them primitive

redbreegull 02-08-2018 10:43 PM

not gonna lie though I LOLed at the part with the centerfold

ilikeplanets 02-08-2018 10:46 PM

I don't think the Amish are a race

redbreegull 02-08-2018 10:59 PM

no but they are a distinct cultural, religious, and arguably ethnic group.

Religions are made to be mocked.

I'm asking the questions here

redbreegull 02-13-2018 03:28 PM

also they are distinct cultural group and I'm pretty sure at this point you could identify an Amish person via their DNA because it's been an exclusive population for half a millennium. not sure what you are rolling your eyes at

redbreegull 02-13-2018 03:30 PM

actually Weird Al has a Jewish parody too but he's not Jewish :/

slunken 02-13-2018 04:37 PM

Taco Grande is pretty funny

LaBelle 02-13-2018 07:14 PM

It wasn't a particularly tough question though.

redbreegull 02-13-2018 09:39 PM

Must be awful to be white and overanalyze everything while hating your own skin color because of the ever-growing societal role of political correctness and white shaming.

But that's just a black perspective on your posts in general. :banging:

LaBelle 02-15-2018 05:54 AM

It's less awful than to not think about those things.

LaBelle 02-15-2018 06:08 AM

That's fair!
