i understand that this is a stereotypical comment, but its harmless. the fact that this offends people is beyond me. i dont understand why people cant laugh at themselves and take things lightly nowadays.
itd be like Gronkowski doing a dance in the endzone and an announcer saying "im surprised he can dance" or somehting like that. who cares? white people not being able to dance is a stereotype that is harmless just like black people liking fried chicken is harmless. every race has people that cant dance just like every race has people that love fried chicken.
id have a problem with it if Bradshaw said something like "Bush running like hes getting away from a lynch mob"...thats blatantly racist. i just dont this see it as a big deal, but im part of a generation that doesnt take race as serious as before. i can say a completely racist comment around a black friend (as long as its not serious) and he wont care because he knows that im just kidding and im not actually a racist. we have been conditioned to this because of the way our culture (mainly TV) has become. shows like Chappelle's Show, where he points out stereotypes and race all the time, but does it in a comical manner to where all races can watch, relate, and enjoy it together. South Park does the same thing (although goes a little further with their Jewish jokes), but i know Jewish people that absolutely love that show.
i guess my point is that people need to start to lighten up. take things serious that NEED to be taken serious. dont waste time getting upset about little nonsense like this.
