Red face Let us not be afraid to ask the tough questions

Is Amish Paradise by Weird Al Yankovic racist?

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.

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

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.
