I can't put my finger on it. Is it parody or racist? On all the levels involved?

Why is this racist?

The thought hasn't even entered my mind until you pointed it out....

Jew? Angry muslim can't embrace a jew? I dunno. I think it ranks up there with black people and chicken jokes (don't get me wrong I think they're HILARIOUS!) But it enhances a stereotype against a subset of people much unlike fat or "yo momma" jokes.

P.S. For everyone reading this, I am NOT calling LoganSnake a racist. Neither do I think he's one.

Again, I doubt anybody would've inferred that from your posts had you not pointed it out.

By the way, I heard the best yo mama joke the other day. Yo mama's so fat, she's on both sides of the family. It's hard to find an original yo mama these days.

had this been a Gay Elimation Worker, this video would have been considered sexist. A gay guy with a bullet through his head would have caused an uproar.

apart from the obvious stereotypes, the bad bad bad arabian props and the message it portrays, tell me why this video isnt racist?

Because it's satire? Something I am struggling with. Is it not racist to be satirical or is it fine to be racist whilst satirical or racism is never fine?

Then they would've been just as overreacting as a person who thinks this video is racist. As Xerxes pointed out, this is satire.

Can we really not have a joke about a person of a different skin color or religion without somebody yelling racism?

What makes it funny is the prejudices the West seems to have about Arabs, and how expendable they are if we fear them enough.

What makes this funny is racism.

The first problem with this video is that it is simply not funny.

The second problem, and the reason people might be inclined to "yell racism" is that a portrayal of shooting someone in the head while others nonchalantly stand around for comic effect tends to rub people the wrong way.

So it wasn't screaming I heard during the "cell phone footage" part?

satire isnt always meant to be funny. which this video obviously isnt. satire is supposed to use the writers objection to something through the use of wit. again which is missing here

so its either really bad comedy or really bad satire. a bad combination when you're using race, religion or colour as your core.

but craven's right....she is hot, and it wasnt till the last split second that i found anything mildly interesting in this video.

I think you'd just get shot in the head on suspicion of mischief.
