What? Hilary, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Make Terrible Scripted "Colored People Time" Joke at Ceremony

As Adam Carolla says, "Even I'm offended, and I'm actually a racist."

John Sexton observes:

Was anyone at the dinner really offended by the "CPT" joke? Probably not. In a relatively sane world that would be all that matters. But let's face it, no Republican presidential candidate who dared to perform a skit based on a racial stereotype about black people would be allowed to live it down. If Trump or Cruz had tried this, CNN would run the clip on a loop and either Don Lemon or Anderson Cooper would be asking in very serious tones if such humor was still appropriate in 2016. The media’s rules, as ever, are just different for Democrats.

If black people aren't offended, fine. But I'm still very annoyed myself. Not at the joke -- but the idea that there is a Special Awesomely Privileged Rich White People's Club where you are allowed to say some things others aren't -- a top 1% of Free Speech Privilege -- and then the rest of us plebes and proles have to deal with a punishing gauntlet of speech codes, speech crimes, #SafeSpaces and Hashtag Mobs.

And meanwhile, state attorneys general conspire together to illegally investigate and punish people for speech they don't like (in this case, global warming "denialism").

4 Right, the issue isn't the joke - its a pretty standard running gag among many blacks. The issue is a white dude said it and would be crucified if they weren't a protected white leftist politician.

I mean, look at what happened to Paula Deen for testifying that she'd probably said a word every rap song for decades repeats constantly, 40 years ago.

8 The reason for the double treatment is obvious. Its not just political leverage, its a presumption of evil. non-leftist people are presumed to be horrific and evil, worthy only of death in a camp somewhere, so if they say anything that can through any lens be interpreted as racist or sexist, its just proof of their monstrosity.

16 The thing is - this "Colored People Time" thing is actually taught in Universities and seminars to corporate entities. It's essentially the belief that black people place a different, lower cultural value timeliness/policing tardiness and therefore in a corporate or work environment holding them to white standards (and assessing their performance negatively for tardiness) is wrong and anti-diversity.

Crazy, yes, but people say it and teach it (whether or not they sincerely believe it).

This is true, culturally, for some blacks that is true. Its also true that some cultural groups of whites have a lower cultural value for tolerance of non-whites and some cultural groups of Asians have a lower tolerance for sloth and tardiness.

Yet, somehow, only some groups get this coddling for their behavior. Its almost as if the left thinks blacks can do no better or something.

90 This really happened two days ago, witnessed personally by me:

There was a memorial service for a woman who had passed away. She was Asian, middle-class, with 100% pf her relatives being Asian, and when she was alive 85% of her friends were Asian, and 14.9% of her friends were white. She had, as far as anybody knew, exactly ONE black friend, whom we'll call "Denise" -- but who, interestingly, was her best friend.

So, people are filing into the room for the memorial, Asian Asian Asian white Asian Asian Asian Asian Asian white white Asian Asian Asian Asian Asian white Asian Asian and then suddenly black black black black black.

The sister of the woman who passed away, who was clasping hands with everyone who entered, clasped hands with the first black woman, who announced, "Hi, we're the family of Denise."

The sister replied, "Ah, that's what I figured. Thank you for coming."

I instantly winced internally, seeing how the comment could be somewhat misinterpreted. What the sister meant, of course, was the factual fact that the deceased woman only had one black friend, so it makes total sense that the black people arriving at the event would be that friend's family.

But -- you guessed it - -the black woman instantly took offense, and snapped back, "Oh that's because we all look alike to you, hunh?" before filing into the room.

Although only a few people overheard this interchange, it immediately cast a racial pall over the proceedings. Unpleasant.

Question: Who was right or wrong in this situation? The sister for being unwittingly "racially insensitive," or the black attendee for having a hair-trigger racial grievance trigger?

160 Yes, there is such a thing as CPT. We call it African time in Nigeria. My Kenyan friend says they have something similar.

But no one in their right mind would use it as *an excuse* to show up late for official/corporate stuff. Because they aren't crazy or dumb.

I was stunned that Americans actually show up on time to social gatherings. In Nigeria, if a party is slated as starting at 2 p.m., e.g., no one would actually show up at 2 p.m., everyone would show up maybe at 3 if they wanted to be super early.

I've heard that some Nigerians actually print wedding invitations with different times for Nigerians and Americans. You tell your Nigerian peeps to show up, say two hours before you actually plan to start and you tell your American friends the real time.

I am ashamed to say I was late to my 30th birthday party which took place in my oe. house. Of course, some of my American friends were already there. The only Nigerian that were there were the ones who came to help me set up for the party.

The percentage who are worried a great deal rose seven percentage points in the past year and has more than doubled in the past two years.

229 An episode of the old Lou Grant show (when he was a newspaper editor) dealt with American Indians. They weren't using the term "native" back then. They were getting a job for an Indian who wasn't getting to work on time. They mentioned the phrase "Indian time" because certain tribes had no concept of time.

231 "I had posed this question somewhat tongue in cheek higher up in the

term that is supposed to be used when referring to someone with high

The officially state-approved politically correct term is "African-American", and insanely enough this now gets used OUTSIDE of America.

There have been several notable cases in the UK of individuals referring to black people as "black", and being sanctimoniously corrected with "oh, you mean African-American."

Well, no, because the black people being referred to are British nationals, born in the UK, with no connection to the US, and never having even visited the US.

But still, the automatic knee-jerk political correctness imposition is now so strong that it kicks in even when it's entirely contextually ludicrous to use it.

232 Can I have the rubric for the acceptable word for non-white people by year, please?

As of now all I have is a word cloud, of which every single one has some form of negative connotation in my head.

"Colored" (bad, unless you're a democrat politician)
"People of color" (good, I think?)
"Black" (Literal but not considered fully appropriate?)
"African American" (How many syllables do we really need for this)
"Minority" (I think this is offensive?)

Having posted this I will probably need guns, money, and lawyers to deal with the eventual retribution. After all, since I'm posting from chrome, this is going on my permanent record.
