    • @Shaneyah G. It comes from an abbreviated name for a type of children's doll that was an offensive caricature of black people. It essentially means the same thing as the N word.

  • "Well check. There might be a knife." Oh, man, that brought back a memory. My uncle had a prosthetic leg. Pre-911 he did that exact thing. He wasn't boarding the plane. This was back when you could see people off at the gate but you still had to go through security and he realized that he'd left his pocket knife in his pocket, sooooo . . . Down the leg it went.

  • How can a joke be equally funny when translated to sign language? ...Well it can't.

    ParzivalParzival4 maanden geleden
    • @Ken Smith yes but that's different. Those jokes are originally done in sign language. Some things are just lost in translation.

    • @retnavybrat Yes you talked about immigrants from Italy, not nationals of italian descent. So it wasn't about Italian-Americans but about the hate of a nation of immigrants towards immigrants. a.k.a good ol' hypocrisy. Feel free to miscontrue further, have a nice day either way. :)

      Soken50Soken503 maanden geleden
    • @Soken50 I was, though. Or to be more specific, my original post was talking about people from Italy who immigrated to the US and the attitude towards them by other Americans.

      retnavybratretnavybrat3 maanden geleden
    • @retnavybrat Well if you're gonna strawman my argument then sure, I'm wrong. But I wasn't talking about italian-americans was I ?

      Soken50Soken503 maanden geleden
    • @Soken50 I'm sure there were people who used that as an excuse to justify their pre-existing prejudices. However, most non-Italian Americans didn't seem to have a problem with Italian _Americans_ by the mid-20th century. After all, would people like Frank Sinatra or Antonin Scalia have achieved what they did if the majority of the people in the US harbored hatred towards people of Italian descent?

      retnavybratretnavybrat3 maanden geleden
    • @retnavybrat Oh yeah I'm sure Americans loved Italians after 1945, as a former member of the Axis (the merry band of Nazis) that really got them together.

      NoisesNoises3 maanden geleden
    • @Madelynn Henson If you believe that I'm trying to rank disabilities or say that one is worse than another, then I guess I'm not explaining myself well enough. What I was trying to compare is the level of accommodation that someone with a disability may need.

      retnavybratretnavybrat4 maanden geleden
    • retnavybrat comparing disability is toxic and makes people with less visible disabilities feel unheard and makes it harder to get proper accommodations. If you are disabled, you are disabled. There is no medical ranking suggesting that one disability is worse than others. I understand the point you are trying to make and you most likely aren’t disabled so you don’t have a first hand experience, saying thar some disabilities are less than others is extremely problematic and toxic when it comes to the care of the individual.

      Madelynn HensonMadelynn Henson4 maanden geleden
    • @Madelynn Henson I'm not saying that someone like Hills _isn't_ legally disabled, just that he doesn't seem to need as much accommodation for that disability as, say, someone like my late grandmother, who was blind, or a friend of mine from high school who has cerebral palsy.

      retnavybratretnavybrat4 maanden geleden
    • retnavybrat okay 1. I was joking. And 2. In America he is labeled as disabled (as am I) To he disabled, you must have at least one thing that impacts daily life that you cannot do. His prosthetic is what allows him to live daily life (like my service dog) but that doesn’t make us any less disabled. It’s living with help. These things are seen as medical tools that give us life back but at the end of the day, we are still disabled and that’s totally okay!

    • Also The Golliwog was the mascot and emblem of Robinsons Jams in England for a very long time ,I'm in my fifties and we grew up surrounded by golliwogs, don't remember them being considered really offensive as we just saw them as a logo I guess, they were everywhere pins badges stickers dolls, tv ads you name it. Not denying they were offensive to black people and are rightly gone now, History happened we learnt and moved on and hopefully that will be the end of it. All I will say is these people today who want to erase history and all the bits they don't like are just going to cause all the bad stuff to happen again.

      Melvoid01Melvoid014 maanden geleden
    • “Wog” in the UK is a shorter term for “Golliwog”. I was born after their popularity so bare with me as I’m no historian. The Golliwog was a doll that had very dark skin and white rings around its eyes and mouth etc. It was an unflattering, over-the-top and, let’s be honest, racially insensitive doll. Because the doll looked like some extreme caricature of a black man, it’s name was used as a racial slur against black people in the U.K. DISCLAIMER: these are not my beliefs, I do not own, and never have owned, one of these dolls. I do not use the term quoted above and it was only written in the context of explanation regarding the derivation of the word and why it is so offensive in the U.K. please do not hate on me. Thanks

      Sophie MarshSophie Marsh4 maanden geleden
    • Wouldn't golliwog be in some way related to the usage of wog and therefore also refer to blacks?

    • @61lastchild The job of translating written words to another language is translator. If it's spoken it's interpreter. Someone who works for, say, the UN and provides spoken translations in real time while someone is speaking is an interpreter. Translators typically only work with the written word, or at the very least with a delay, never in real time, that's a different study altogether because you a need a very different skill set.

That's a thing I'd like to see, sign language stand-up comedy to a deaf audience with a guy voicing it in real time like he came up with it. Only that wouldn't be annoying to the deaf audience, would it? Yes, I'm saying I found her annoying.

    • No, a guy voicing jokes that a deaf comedian does wouldn't annoy the deaf audience because they can't well f*cking hear him can they, and they're not even looking at him because they're a bit occupied with watching the deaf comedian do the f*cking sign language jokes Except I'd totally love to see that, a gig where there's a guy doing sign language jokes to massive deaf people jazz hands applause and some other guy saying the jokes out loud and getting like a dozen laughs scattered through the audience And how exactly do you want her to translate the jokes? You want her to go "Oh that marvellously talented fellow just said the following: 'We don't hate mexicans'" before every bloody line because she totally has the time to do that? Or what else do you propose? If you're talking about how she does the facial expressions and the body language while translating, well she HAS to do that because that's how tone works in sign language, if she didn't it would be like every joke's told by Stephen Hawking So yeah, sorry to inform you that deaf people can enjoy comedy gigs now

    • @moaning pheromones It is a slightly weirder case than you would expect. COVID rates in Mexico are much lower than in the US. Thus many from Mexico are afraid to travel to the US. Mexico has banned American tourists because they don't want people from the US bringing in the disease. I think Canada and Europe have done the same.
