I figured Chris Rock. Never payed any attention to the other two.
I actually thought that was in reference to TV's joke.
The amount of underlying racism in this thread from some of our most senior members is really disheartening.
Sorry, but in the context of this thread, that's just stupid. There has been nothing racist posted in this thread. The fact that Quad is a really intelligent, well-spoken poster makes that kind of stupid accusation even more disappointing.
Oh, I didn't catch that. But still, that's not even remotely racist. He was quoting a comedy routine that, honestly, sounds like something I would expect Jamie Fox, Tracy Morgan, or Chris Rock to say in their routines.
I didn't think much of it, but I did find it fairly conspicuous when Tick mentioned he was black. You might be onto something that it's unfortunate that we automatically notice such things, but it is what it is. Nothing racist, just noticeable. Then TV's joke. Again, nothing racist there. However, TV's joke after Tick's mentioning of the thief being black actually did create a bit of an undertone to the thread. Nothing that would have offended me, but it was there.
WRONG!!! I didn't give a shit if the guy was black, white, asian, hispanic, or American Indian. the undertone you refer to was created by your own mind, not me.
I didn't even realize if the op even mentioned race. The simple fact that the guy was skimming money at the drive thru reminded me of the comedy routine by either Eddie Griffin, or Chris Rock (I cannot remember who it was, but the whole routine was as funny as hell), but my remembrance of the bit, had NOTHING to do with race per se, but about the routine where the guy complained about being on fries and not the register because he couldn't "make no money on fries"; HIS obvious implication that he ALSO skimmed from the till. I ONLY referenced his race because the comedian did as well, and it was the comedians use of overdramtic slang that made the joke especially funny.
People need to get a life and stop being so critical all the time. But perhaps I should have clarified it was either Rock, or Griffin (now I'm wondering if it was Chappelle) and NOT someone like Larry the Cable Guy.
