Brown Pride is the Victor.

Great sound bites from the Champ and George Lopez. Poetic justice for a LightWeight Racist

On a side-note, really feeling the positive posts of late! A welcome change...

"Captain Real America" Costume

Fall is great for many reasons, but is unfortunately perdy racist-y given when it comes to great American traditions such as Halloween & Thanksgiving. Last year we warned you about the the Illegal Alien costume. This year, we have an endorsement!  Captain Real America.

Costume Contest 1 - Captain Real

Shout to James Brady, a great white father. Keep it real, gangster.

Floyd Mayweather: Racist Failure.

Mr. Mayweather. Until you get the right stereotypes, you're just an idiot. Besides, you don't have anything to talk about if you refuse to fight the man.

First off, I'm glad to see Black Sheep get paid (if they retained the rights to the tune) but KIA needs to get checked. Naming a car the "Soul" and the campaign is to have hamsters "act" as if they're black, with rap music, basketball and baggy hoodies and other stereotypical trappings. Yup, that's LightWeight Racist. They couldn't seriously think that African Americans would think this ad would make buying the "Soul" a good idea.  Which begs the question "who IS the intended market for this ad?" and better yet are there middle Americans who think animated hamsters and baggy clothes are cool?

If you still don't get it, think about this... based on this ad, what would the Jeep "Cherokee" ad campaign look like? *bang*

"I love the native american culture:" racism meets bad crafts

i love it when my interests intersect. i'm big on crafting, and well, you know i how i like to make fun of racism. i also like to make fun of crafters. especially when they're racist.
if you're unfamiliar with - it's an online platform for crafters to sell their handmade goods. the blog "regretsy" is one of the best things to happen this decade - because we all know that handmade shit isn't always pretty.
here's the original posting. i don't have much to say about it, other than i was suddenly reminded of that book i was forced to read in elementary school - "the indian in the cupboard" - what was that?!

Native American Necklace

"I love the native american culture.

This necklace includes a young native american man who appears to be hunting... perhaps for dinner. or lunch.

He hangs from a rather long pale green ribbon in which I have strung some plastic beads and two feather charms.

I love this necklace. I want it... but I'll let you buy, if you love it too. "

E-40 - LightWeight Jammin'

While heavyweight racism is making a comeback (Arizona leads the charge & Alabama reverts) the closest thing we've got to good news is E-40 aka 40 Water, the Bay Area's foremost slang'uist, further demonstrates the use of the term "LightWeight" with some help from Clyde Carson and Husalah...

These recent musical posts remind me, keep your ears peeled for the LightWeight Racist mixtape coming soon from our contributor extrordonaire, Dj WillieMaze!

Troy Polamalu Needs to Hire Us.

I was shocked to see this during the Superbowl. The only reason it's Lightweight Racist, and not heavyweight, is that Troy had to sign off on this advertisement. Which brings us to a new venture... it seems LightWeight Racist could prevent catastrophies such as this if we were hired as consultants. Troy, you are undoubtedly a hero to thousands of Samoans and Polynesians the world over. What the FUCK are you doing letting a white man in a top hat pull you by your hair? As a groundhog? Are you an animal? Hope paid you enough, brother.

wedding racism

so i was in the bookstore the other day looking at wedding magazines. yeah, i know. but i was trying to get started with planning our wedding and i figured i might find some ideas there.
and a sure did.
apparently it's fashionable to have an "ethnic-theme" to your wedding. i guess appropriating cultural heritage is a theme?
as i flipped through the pages i was first struck by the above advertisement for bridesmaid dresses - i'm not exactly sure what the feather/painted stick decorations have to do with the robins egg blue dress, but i suppose they match.
as i continued to open magazines it became clear that i'd need to be taking photo evidence for the blog (sorry for the shitty glare).

there's the japanese-theme, complete with kimonos, parasols,

and no, none of them are japanese.

neither are they.

and i'm pretty sure these ladies aren't indian.

Kentucky Fried Racism

What do you do when you're in an "awkward situation" - meaning within close proximity to black people? Feed them fried chicken.
"too easy."

That was the "Cricket Survival Guide" KFC ad from Australia. Now check out this Kyochon ad for Korean fried chicken:

You gotta admire fried chicken manufacturers' willingness to capitalize on racism. They don't just stop at the fried chicken stereotype. You know somebody in their marketing department was like, "so we've got the black people and fried chicken thing already, what else can we do with this?" Let's see, there's: exploiting white and asian people's fear of black people, trying to get black folks to act "civilized," tribalism and drum beats, cannibalism, plus a little asian magic up in the mix. Perfect capitalist equation.

Santa's little helper, "Black Pete"

Did you know that in the Netherlands Santa [aka Sinterklaas] has a little helper named Zwarte Piet [Black Pete]?

Yeah, me niether.
Apparently, to this day the Dutch employ a white guy (or lady) to dress in blackface, don an afro wig, gold jewelry, red lipstick and a broken accent and pal around with St. Nick wherever he goes.
Here's a little history, thanks to Wikipedia:

According to myths dating to the beginning of the 19th century, Saint Nicholas (Sinterklaas) operated by himself or in the companionship of a devil. Having triumphed over evil, it was said that on Saint Nicholas Eve, the devil was shackled and made his slave...According to the more modern Saint Nicholas legend, Zwarte Piet is a servant who accompanies Saint Nicholas on his holiday travels. In some versions, it is alleged that Saint Nicholas once liberated a young slave named Peter, who decided to serve Nicholas (as a free servant) rather than enjoy liberty alone.
Yeah, right.
And if you're going to create blackface caricatures, the next logical step is baked goods versions:

source: cakewrecks
Watch out, little white kids. If you're bad Zwarte Piet will kidnap you, through you in a dufflebag and take you away to Spain, where apparently he and Santa chill on the off-season.

Unless, of course, you're disguised...

Racial Harmony for Black History Month

Prince Paul, the man behind many of your favorite hip hop sounds, seminal acts and producer of the new Heiroglyphics album has done it again. Paul's strength has always been creating wild theatrics, conceptual albums and gut busting self-depricating comedy. This time, it's interactive and thoughtfully recession friendly. This party might get him a nomination for LightWeight anti-Racist of the year.

If you're in New York February 12th, grab a friend and save some scratch!

Big up Cutsoversy for putting me up on awesome.
