“White People Crazy” — Funny or Offensive? (Or Neither? Or Both?)

My verdict? Slightly funny and slightly offensive. Basically, it’s “Hangover Movie Funny.” (“Hangover Movie Funny” = “the type of funny where something is more funny in theory than actually funny.“)

    I am SO gonna download this song and bump it TOTALLY loud, riding deep in my car through the park this Saturday! And, not just any ole’ park. I’m gonna go to the North part of town and roll up in there like it ain’t no thang. I can just imagine the facial expressions now. rotflmao!

    As for those stunts in the video… I hurt EVERY time I see someone smack face to concrete. I can’t stand to watch people do stupid ish like that. OUCH!

    This was hilarious! I’ll admit that I laughed more than I wanted to…especially since I’m at work. :-/ Oh well…keep the party going! :-)

    i can’t watch with the sound on at work, but i had to turn it off after ole buddy fucked his hand up with the hidden knife under a cup. that’s just stupid.

    but my theory is the same. yt ppl aren’t crazy, they are bored. with no worries about driving while black, shopping while black, attending pwi’s while black, living life while black, they’re just looking for a little excitement.

    plus they are barbaric by nature. that’s why when they get drunk they do shit like light trees on fire and swing from the flaming branches because unc beat duke in a basketball game. and they don’t even attend unc. or a university period. that’s a true story btw.

      By golly, you’ve figured white folks out. We just need to throw in some every waking moment fear for their lives and then they can chill their behinds out. That must be why extreme sports even exist. Life ain’t nothing unless you fear losing it. Deep.

    I’m using “Hangover Movie Funny”. Consider it co-opted.
