I agree, but it's not always evident that this is what's going on. Like this video: it's hilarious, and partially because there's no hint of irony anywhere. It's just dudes laughing and singing while spewing a list of bad stereotypes and asianesque words without any commentary. I found it funny, but I know a lot of people who wouldn't. Especially if you're an Asian person and have experienced a history of being berated with such bad stereotypes in the past. It's a classic example of Poe's Law.LiQuid wrote:People seem to forget that just pointing on racial stereotypes and even laughing at them does not equal racism.
