Amit Gupta, an American professor

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Because some do not like those in the categories listed above, because some find reason for cruel jokes instead of acceptance, not accusing anyone here, is the the reason the good academic has a point.

When the world is better educated, more informed, when the value of that is more important than entertainment products, we will be better off.

Not saying get rid of entertainment because all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy but am saying that those who attack academia are dabbling in anti-intellectualism. That is never admirable except to the populist. The populist is rabble and easy to rouse.

I am sure the "good academic" would soon be up in arms if no black person was in the show at all! maybe thats the reason they got a black girl to do the part in the first place, because it was racist not to!

I have this theory. In my opinion people who accuse other people of racism are generally more likely to be bigger racists themselves.
People who find racism where racism patently doesn't exist (as in the article posted here) are clearly looking for a reason to bring up the subject, this would suggest that they are constantly thinking about race & need only the slimmest of excuses to bring up the subject at any opportunity. They actually detect racism where normal people wouldn't give it a second thought & thereby perpetuate the subject, as in the story about the guy painting his door the st georges flag colours. If the racist council official hadn't said anything then neither would anyone else including the mythical 'offended muslims'.

I  must admit i read it a few times too, kept my reply short and even now not sure it it relates to his post, but it was worth getting my point across.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I have a theory too. well, it's more of a tenet than a theory, and it's that if you can't laugh at yourself, then you've no right laughing at others, and LBA, you take yourself F-A-R too seriously, so not being able to laugh at yourself, you resent those of us who can, and begrudge us our ability to laugh at others.
relax man, do some finger-painting, eat some bogeys, run around your house naked, smile when you fart, get drunk every now & again, but for gods' sake, stop taking everything so bloody seriously!!
