"Free Talk Rive - Chinee Edition"
« on: April 17, 2011, 09:49:08 PM »

Sunday 4.17's show.

Wonder what Ian's views are on the "racist" content?

Hope someone will let me know when the "African-American Edition" airs so I can tune into that one.

While most liberal people turning in for the first time would likely think that both Ian and Mark are very racist people, that's because the people lack both an understanding of what race is and don't know Ian and Mark very well.  Sure, they say stuff that people may consider racist on air.  So does Puke and others.  However, I doubt any of them are anything like so called racist.  Anyway, acting like they are against Chinese certainly isn't as bad as their anti-christian stuff in the eyes of the vast majority of Americans.  Ian and Mark also constantly make fun of southern people. 

Let's face it, it's humor.  Ian and Mark constantly make fun of various groups, but it's all in good fun (at least to the podcast listeners that are in on the jokes.)  I don't think FTL would be as interesting if it wasn't so edgy and purposefully offense to almost the entire listening audience.  FTL is the South Park of talk radio though the production value is nearly nothing compared to South Park and FTL is more political than South Park.

Many of us grow up on Married with Children, the Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, South Park, Mad TV and/or Saturday Night Live and so on.  Many of us act that way in Keene from time to time.  I only know of one person that is very bothered by it, though, and even he acts that way.

No, it was a Sunday show with Puke and the gang. Ian & Mark weren't on.

I think it started with someone using the term "Orientals" and someone followed that up with something like "Shouldn't they be called 'Disorientals' 'cause every time I see them they seem disoriented." That was followed up with additional humor at the expense of Asian people. I recall hearing "Free Talk Rive" too.

Racial stereotypes exist for a reason, and I frequently laugh at "racist" jokes aimed at any group, so I'm not offended by this at all.

What's offensive is that FTL commonly says how disgusting racism in all forms is, and how they would never associate themselves with racists... yet, here it is. They (Ian & Mark) frequently use suthr'n aixents to powar-tray ignrent whyte paple, but I've never once heard a hint of poking fun at black people and their well-earned and well known stereotypes. I don't expect Puke and the gang to have the balls to make fun of black people on the air either.

If you're gonna be all edgy and reckless, which the hosts failed at in this episode, then you'll need to go a bit further out on a limb rather than stick to safe targets like Asian folks for a source of humor. And if it's acceptable to target one or two groups then, logically, it should be acceptable to target any group.

If anyone can show me where I'm wrong in this, do tell.

I myself find racial humor funny. My woman is asian, and let me tell ya, more than 80% of all the asians I have met in my life (shitloads of em) cant drive worth a FUCK. I dont know what it is. Depth perception or what, I have no idea, but its a fact.

In my opinion, if you dont find at least some racial humor funny....... there is something seeeeeriously wrong with you, cuz its funny stuff.

Go to 4.17's show, at 60 minutes in. Granted, this portion of the show is about 5 minutes out of 3 hours. However, here is what was said:

- blacks should be called apes because of the way they slump themselves around and walk slowly with a primitive-type gait
- blacks are lazy and stupid and you always see them dressing in shabby clothes
- blacks can't drive well
- a chuckle over an ethnic sounding name (DesJoMaquarius Johnson III)
- having fun with racial accents and dialects.. "yo wan get up in dis hyuh 'merka?"

I think Mark and Ian both recently used a bunch of chinese accents for fun, maybe I confused them with Puke and 280.  I know they also did a bunch of jokes making fun of chinese, japanese and asians in general.  280 was just repeating lines from a TV show, if I recall.

While Mark doesn't make fun of black people, he goes through a lot of trouble to explain that he has a friend or his best friend is black or half black, depending on how he tells it.  It seems he is making fun of white people by saying that, or maybe he is just being hyper defense.

Japanese videogame players also tend to have problems playing First Person Shooters, Mario Galaxy and other 3d video games.  Maybe the problem that causes Japanese videogamers to get sick playing such games is related to what you are talking about.

Ha! Yeah I remember hearing that several times. The story is always sincere, so I'm betting it's the "hyper defense" you named.

Haven't heard the show where Ian & Mark mimic Asian accents but that surprises me. Dunno who 280 is..

Who is this "280"??? Male or female? Hot or not?

Um, Ryder usually has the same two co-hosts help him when he is in charge of the Sunday FTL.  They are both great guys and sometimes say things that some people may consider racist.  I am not sure what name 280 goes by on FTL.
