To liberals the song “Baby it’s cold outside” is offensive because it gives off a rape vibe but “Back that ass up” by Juvenile is totally fine. **Facepalm**

Cold outside isn’t offensive but it is pretty cringe worthy, it reminds me of “the implication”

Would you point me to something whereby someone who speaks for liberals have indicated their "total" approbation of the "Back That Ass Up?" I'm not aware of any such individual or organization having declared that song "totally fine."

LOL ... I hadn't even heard of the song. It's a song?

If you believe that discussion is the intent of the OP, you're wrong. The OP is "black people are bad and everyone lets them get away with it!"

It's a white victim thread.

Best line: "She doesn't know if she wants to sleep with me, that's not the point".

I'm thinking that perhaps I bailed on that show too soon.

Yes.




My Black friends who play it at their parties have the DJ play a quasi-instrumental version of the song that omits certain lyrics they find offensive and of which my friends are unwilling to be thought of as being indifferent.

Nearly all my Black friends are liberal/Democrats. It occurred to me that if they find unacceptable some of the sentiments in that song, what liberal spoke for and gave his/her approbation, on behalf of liberals in general, to that song's lyrics/themes. That's why I asked the OP-er to back up h is assertion about what liberals find "totally fine."

Maybe so; maybe not. I know that responding to the OP with serious questions that entreat him/her to support the assertions he made makes clear their insipidity, or, if there is a cogent/sound argument to be made supporting the claim(s), it'll establish their legitimacy. Either way, the truth will out, regardless of the underlying motivations for the thread's creation.

I don't know anyone here, so I can't very well attest to what be a member's motivations and intentions. I can, however, raise very good arguments for/against the substantive assertions and positions I or others hold or oppose.

No maybe. Big picture it.

If you can't figure the motivation behind idiotic posts, work on that.

To be honest, I'm just not interested in sussing the motivations of total strangers. I am quite content to consider the rational adequacy and completeness of the ideas folks posit and opining based on my analysis thus of their ideas/assertions.

I think you tried to direct the thread towards criticism of the booty song in support of the OP.

To the extent you think so, you're mistaken. I think the OP-er's assertions are absurd. My post bids him/her to defend his or her absurd remark, or revise/recant it.

Because of, among other things, my days as a high school collegiate forensic debater, I'm more a rhetorical chess player. Thus I don't care why my opponent makes a stupid/benighted remark; I'm merely going to force them to look increasingly stupid/ignorant by pressing them into a position where they must defend their stupid remark/point or lose it by not defending it. As you may know, there's no way to successfully defend a senseless point/claim -- the only thing one can do with such a point is dig one's "hole" even deeper -- and that point which one cannot defend with germane facts is that which one loses. (It's more expensive to defend an indefensible (unsound/uncogent) point than it is to proffer a weaker point that is sound/cogent and can thus withstand rigorous scrutiny.)

You failed to address his premise (race) and sought to become lost in criticism of a booty song. That's assisting the OP in his endeavor, which you still refuse to recognize.

Show me where, in response to the OP-er, I criticized the "Booty" song.

Yeah you should definitely pick it back up. There is a Wade Boggs episode that is particularly hilarious
