The King Of Not Funny Carlos Mencia Gets Yanked From Mardi Gras Gig For Hurricane Katrina Joke

I never cared for Carlos Mencia because I don't think he's funny. I can never shake the feeling that I have heard his jokes from somebody else. Even this joke he told that got him in trouble, seems heavily borrowed from a skit Paul Mooney does on his CD, Race, where he takes white folks to task about laughing at everything except when the joke is about them.

The Dummy LaMont councilwoman had to resign for e-mailing her version of Mencia's joke was to stupid to realize that it still wasn't funny even with her own little racist twist.

Interesting how the ideology that purports to support "free speech" and who is quick to send ACLU lawyers onto the scene in defense of "unpopular speech" are themselves willing to take punitive action against those who make speech that THEY don't like.

No surprise here.

Many comedians and editorial cartoonists are fearful at present of making jokes directly about Obama for the same fear of backlash and attack.

So if instead of Hurricane Katrina, he had said the same thing about slavery, you would have thought that was okay to say too? I don't see what is funny about incidents where black folks died.

And for someone that claims to be so concerned about the welfare about black folks, you are awfully negative about your own people. If your view is so much better, why can't you stand it without attacking the views of others as if they shouldn't exist?

And your comments about President Obama clearly echo a desire for people to dismantle not just professionally, but personally the first black president. White folks may criticize President Bush, but they never wish to see the man beat down.

Hate speech isn't free speech in my book. Making jokes about the VICTIMS of Hurricane Katrina is STUPID. He never would have made a similar joke about the Holocaust or 9/11 because no concept of "free speech" would dare be argued by anyone on those subjects, but if it's about black folks, we are supposed to bend over.

No surprise there either. We have a long history of being treated that way and an equally long history of some of our own people acting like that is acceptable. Not on this blog.

The ACLU defends the rights of all idiots to freely express themselves, particularly those who are conservative free thinking racists.

Let's not get any of that twisted. People have the right to express themselves as they see fit. I have the right to WITHDRAW my support if I do not agree with that expression. Mencia got what he deserved and so did that old white bitch in FL.

Slavery and Hurricane Katrina?
Aren't you stretching your fantasy a bit bro?

More than just Black people died in Hurricane Katrina and the flooding afterward.

I am just perplexed as to why you are unable to step back and make note that it was more than 5 DAYS which sealed the fate of those who were drowned and flooded out.

WOULD YOU ALLOW SOMEONE YOU LOVE to live in this area depicted by the picture:

The question is: WHEN WILL THE MURDER CHARGES be brought against the ZONING BOARD? This is a case of willful neglect.

Aha!! Now we get to the meat of the argument.
You see Prof Tracey I believe that the people who are NEGATIVE toward Black folks are those who hoist INFERIORITY upon us.

What you detect as "general negativity toward Black people" out of me is in truth targeted contempt for the BLACK ESTABLISHMENT that purports to have our people's best interests in mind. Despite having more POWER over our communities than ever before they rely on people like you to OBFUSCATE for them. The masses are kept unified by the redirection toward common enemies. Even when these enemies MOVE AWAY and allow Blacks to run our own communities with our own leaders intact - their crime will be that they LEFT US ALL BY OURSELVES!!

The people who HATE BLACKS are those who doubt our capability to manage our own affairs and who aren't willing to stand accountable for the results of the policies that are POPULAR but not EFFECTIVE.

You all use a well coordinated set of cajoling messages to insure unity and attack criticism. You will never obtain the type of community you desire until a system of open dialogue and accountability is established.

My "Blackness" is not contingent upon YOUR liking me or the needed criticism that I make use of.

Yet Young Jeezy and T.I. who have lyrically threatened to kill more Black people in their music than the Klan actually has done in the past 30 years in America get promoted as worthy campaigners for the Democratic Party.

Brilliant you are!!

I am not worried about who you WITHDRAW YOUR SUPPORT FOR.
I am far more concerned about who you BREAK BREAD WITH. As long as they continue to be in line with your own ideological bigotry there is little that you will hold them accountable for as their "art imitates their life".
