    What White People Like. Please have a sense of humor

    Because I hijacked the White Runningback thread, I thought I should created a new one in a appropriate place. Now I notice there are alot of Cub fans on here, so I wanted to point out this stereotype and see what your thoughts were.
    See # 30 Wrigley Field.

    Don't get to upset by this, its just a matter of fun/ humor. I don't mean to offend anybody, but this stuff is quite true.

    Now if anybody is offended by this, well then your fit this # 101 Being Offended-
    To be offended is usually a rather unpleasant experience, one that can expose a person to intolerance, cultural misunderstandings, and even evoke the scars of the past. This is such an unpleasant experience that many people develop a thick skin and try to only be offended in the most egregious and awful situations. In many circumstances, they can allow smaller offenses to slip by as fighting them is a waste of time and energy. But white people, blessed with both time and energy, are not these kind of people. In fact there are few things white people love more than being offended.
    Naturally, white people do not get offended by statements directed at white people. In fact, they don’t even have a problem making offensive statements about other white people (ask a white person about “flyover states”). As a rule, white people strongly prefer to get offended on behalf of other people.
    It is also valuable to know that white people spend a significant portion of their time preparing for the moment when they will be offended. They read magazines, books, and watch documentaries all in hopes that one day they will encounter a person who will say something offensive. When this happens, they can leap into action with quotes, statistics, and historical examples. Once they have finished lecturing another white person about how it’s wrong to use the term “black” instead of “African-American,” they can sit back and relax in the knowledge that they have made a difference.
    White people also get excited at the opportunity to be offended at things that are sexist and/or homophobic. Both cases offering ample opportunities for lectures, complaints, graduate classes, lengthy discussions and workshops. All of which do an excellent job of raising awareness among white people who hope to change their status from “not racist” to “super not racist.”
    Another thing worth noting is that the threshold for being offended is a very important tool for judging and ranking white people. Missing an opportunity to be outraged is like missing a reference to Derrida-it’s social death.
    If you ever need to make a white person feel indebted to you, wait for them to mention a book, film, or television show that features a character who is the same race as you, then say “the representation of <insert race> was offensive and if you can’t see that, well, you need to do some soul searching.” After they return from their hastily booked trip to land of your ancestors, they will be desperate to make it up to you. At this point, it is acceptable to ask them to help you paint your house.

    I guess that you did not get the hint from the closing of those other threads. Let me make it clearer. Your post may be harmless, but the powers that be have decided that this is not something that is needed on Cyclone Fanatic. It is not because your post is offensive. It is the path that a post like this leads down. This thread is closed. Please refrain from continued posting of items with a similar theme. If you have a problem, please contact a mod.

    Thank You
