The KTVU news team actually issued an on air apology where they admitted that no one in the newsroom actually read the names prior to the list being put on the teleprompter.

Whoever allowed Sum Ting Wong & Wi Tu Lo to make it past their filter is stupid and should not have that job.

Now when I read those names, I see a sequence of events and not the names of Captains. Laughing

Well, I can't argue that, and I didn't mean to come off like a twat in my post.  I was just like "really?"  I feel like if the tables were turned and it was some dead southern hick sunzabitches who got made fun of by another country/race this would be a different reaction by a lot of people who think this is funny on its face.  But hell I could be wrong in that.  No matter what, that news dept fails big time!

People make fun of the south all the time. White people are the one race not allowed to be offended. =) If we get offended it's just some guy who can't take a joke.

But you are always supposed to use the words illiterate and incest in any joke or slam on Southerners. They must publish a rule book or something....

While I am not exactly sure where the loophole and reference book is located, I do know that lot's of people are allowed to indiscriminately use the words "Redneck," as well as "Cracker," and no one, including the media, ever calls them out on it.

I suppose that everyone just considers those "terms of endearment," regardless of whether the person using it, is a redneck or a cracker. Wink

Outfits like that take themselves entirely too seriously. Watching somebody take them down a peg or three is . . . refreshing. Kind of renews your faith in the human spirit.

What a Face

Amen.

Cool
