Yo, Is This Racist?

Yo, ask me if something is racist and I'll tell you. If it's absolutely necessary for you to know, I'm not white.

Anonymous asked: Yo, is there a non-racist term for the "Montezuma's revenge" you get when eating really spicy food that you usually don't eat, but not while traveling? "Traveler's diarrhea" is the "generic" term, but it doesn't cover when it happens if you're not traveling. I'm suffering the after-effects of an amazingly tasty Sichuan-style dish with tons of chili oil and pepper. TMI right?

Try “upset tum tum.”

Anonymous asked: How can we promote healing if all we're supposed to say to racists is "fuck you"? I'm pissed at them too, but that just doesn't seem very productive.

Hey ding dong, by telling racists “fuck you,” you let them know that their racist behavior and speech aren’t fucking welcome around people who aren’t, you know, completely pieces of shit. Treating those people like their racism is somehow a reasonable, debatable viewpoint prevents healing in the people who are actually affected by their bullshit.

Anonymous asked: Is it a coincidence that "pope" and "poop" are almost spelled the same?? I think not!

Can’t be.

Anonymous asked: A guy on the radio was talking with a really strong Indian accent and I thought, wtf, why does the station allow this asshole to make fun of peoples' accents? But he kept talking and then I realized that was his real voice. Am I the one who was racist, for thinking someone's real accent was a joke?


Anonymous asked: Yo, I don't want to say that Christian music is inherently bad, it's just that all the Christian music produced since the beginning of recorded history is awful.

What a weird coincidence.
