I was watching “Worlds
Dumbest” today on TRU TV and the show was called “Worlds Dumbest Hillbillies”,
making fun of white people. To me it was funny as hell and didn’t bother me at
all because I find it humorous to make fun of people sometimes. But! If the show
was called “Worlds Dumbest Wetbacks” or “Worlds Dumbest Spear Chunkers” then
the show would be considered racist and probably be kicked off the air. Sad but
true!

    Hmmm....

    It's produced by Turner Broadcasting System; I wonder what the 'top people' who put this show on the air look like:

    Philip Kent:



    Louise Sams:



    Andrew T. Heller




    John E. Kampfe:



    Kelly Regal



    There are more, but don't take my word for it; see for yourself.

    http://www.turner.com/company...

    Nothing that gets green-lit and broadcast does so without the approval of these people and other 'head honchos.'


    So... White people perpetuating negative stereotypes of other White people for profit somehow makes "Blacks and Latinos the 'real' racists."



    By the way, if you're really offended and not just looking for a reason to justify racial bigotry, it would probably make more sense to write a complaint letter to TNT, than a post on SH.

    Just sayin.

    Even though it is racist, it's pointless because being called white even in a racist slur it's still a compliment.

    It is technically racist, but no one cares. Not enough white people care about stereotypes of their race to do anything about it.

    Using the term 'hillbilly' isn't racist. Hillbilly is used to describe country folk. Actually anyone can be a hillbilly. Most people that are hillbillies are white.

    The term is not based on race, as you must surely know. It is true, that hillbilly could be used in a derogatory way. Considering that there are numerous shows on TV featuring proud self-proclaimed hillbillies, I fail to see the comparison with those other terms you mentioned.

    It used examples of prejudice and racial bigotry to make a point, and then turned them on their ear by laughing at them.

    I have friends that are hillbillies, Hatfields to be precise. They're proud to be hillbillies and I think it's hard to use a term to 'denigrate someone' when they take great pride in it!!! That's the whole thing, it has to offend the group it's aimed at.

    If they did not show a black or hispanic hillbilly, then this is racist. Only because the rules are not fair for both sides. For example you will never see a TV station that advertises to "whites" only. W.E.T tv would be sent straight to the XXX category.

    Once again, someone complaining of reverse racism where there's none.

    Don't you people get tired of this stuff? Please act like the only hillbillies in America are white, when everyone knows different.

    You played the race card, plain and simple.

    Again, if you really are so offended, why not WRITE A LETTER OF COMPLAINT TO TNT?
