Does this offend you?
What offends me is their stupidity. I don't think they would consider themselves being racist for saying stuff like that about mexicans. If it were black folks they badmouthed it would be a whole other deal. Not in most peoples eyes (I hope), but probably in theirs.
Ron: "its ok, Mexicans aren't people"
I did'nt listen that far.
If you judge anyone by their nationality you are ignorant. Everyone is the same, race is just that. Dumb gamers. I've never herd of them, so that's why i don't care that much they will just go unknown.
Hm. Yup I agree...wasn't funny. If they were mocking themselves at how stupid they are...like monty python style or south park style...then it'd be funny. But they just come accross as nooobs.
when you are trying to expose how stupid it is. such as borat. he is just using his forum to show how idiotic it is.
The quality of this podcast is crap who will ever listen to sh1t
such a sh1t podcast what the hell where they even saying these podcast hosts need to learn english
comments where a disgrace
"Or were we just a bunch of idiots trying to make an entertaining podcast?"
Hm he;s trying to be funny in a sarcastic way...but it was just stooopid. I remember on South park when Kenny went to heaven after beating level 60 on the psp...and they said why can't they use the Japanese kid who beat level 60...and the angel says "Don't be silly the Japanese don't have souls"...but of course that was in a different context - south park mocks itself and mocks racists etc...but this podcast was americans mocking mexicans...there's a difference.
Hm...Ginger people don't have souls...
what you're saying is absolutely true and makes sense. I think that the 'stars' of the podscast just went entirely out of their way to make something funny ---- that really wasn't funny at all. It would've really helped if there was a Mexican-American on the staff as well, but with all of the pale-faced young adults it just seems like w.a.s.p.s. vs. the world, ya know? Hey dont get me wrong. I love off-colour humor (no pun intended) and politically not so correct jokes too, but these guys seem like they are just having a blast ridiculing the Mexicans of Los Angeles with a little too much glee ---- not Keith Richards or Louis Farrakhan glee, but maybe just a little Jimmy the Greek glee.
a/w I've used Destructoid a million times for content, and I don't want to let something like this change my perception, but I at least would like to see a letter from the editor addressing this podcast and next time....maybe pick on all races or more than one. I mean we're (supposed to be) talking about games here, right? One of the most universally & socially shared things around the world besides oil, water, guns, and bread. Let's not let the show boil down to how poor Mexicans have to enterprise in certain parts of the country in order to make ends meet and feed their daughters. There's just not anything really cool about that or funny, Right? That's all. =]
The difference between South Park and that ****Cast or Podcast or whatever you want to call it is the context of the situation. South Park pokes at everything.
The ultimate difference is that South Park is funny and they are not.
It's both racist and funny.
He was being an @zz trying to go for joke when he knew it wasn't funny. He tried again and then realized he was taking it to far. That just shows that he knew better the first time. I can't say he is racist but I can say that he is just socially insensitive
they try to be funny but have no way of delivering their comments in a funny way. They sound like the Amazing Racist doing stand-up. (If you know who am talking about you'd get it) In all honestly these really racist jokes are just that, jokes. But they have to be delivered as jokes and not like they are social commentary and that is exactly what this sounds like. They sound like a bunch of idiots who actually believe the garbage that is coming out their mouth. Take my screen name "kornbeaner" it's really just a combination of the the Band "koRn" with the most racist thing you can call a person of Hispanic descent. Reason I picked it up was for the simple fact is that Korn is my favorite band but at my highschool the white people who went their were some of the most racist people alive, but they happen to like korn as well. So i figured I'd just f*ck up their music. Cause true racist hate it when a Beaner or N*#ger like the same things that they like so it was my way of saying F**k you. So back to the topic, I really can't be mad for what they said cause for the most part it is true. Illegal people do hangout at u-hauls and home depots , but they do it for work, this is how they make their living, and some of them are handy at what they do and do good work for you cause they want you to use them again if possible for future jobs that you might have. These comments just weren't delivered in a jokeful matter. So it's neither racist nor funny it was just stupid for it to be said considering it's a mostly gaming site that had these comments. And to add insult to injury they start talking about stolen Ipod's and hispanic people being so stupid that they couldn't work them anyway, if you think like that why would you hire them. Cause if it were true that all hispanic people steal and you hire them and actually allow them in your home you paid them alot more then the $2/hr you claimed to have paid them. Cause most likely some of the stuff in your u-haul truck "fell off"
It was not funny, but not because it was offensive. And who the hell cares if it offends someone or not? That has never stopped me from being me. If you find it offensive, then DON'T LISTEN TO ME.
How dumb is that guy, "mexicans aren't people" thats just a dumb ass comment
Not the least bit funny .. ignorant yes ..funny no .
This isn't cool or funny.
by most of the comments made by this group. As much as we tend to disagree on consoles and blu-ray vs hddvd, it's good to see that we all agree that being overtly racist is not funny. It's destructive and should be looked at shamefully. Good job guys.
well every race has their idiots.
...But a least I'm not a f**king as**ole like that white guy, mexican people who goes to the states are hard working, honest and more human that a lot of gringos I have met, that's the reason they are hired there, and the reason they go there, that doesn't justify anyone to mistreat they in any way.
I wonder why when someone slightly offends a black person everyone goes mad but if you offend a latin person is all right, and funny, that reminds me of a Nintendo casting here in México, they wanted white asian and black people, but rejected all the latins, damn Nintendo.
Oh, yes, a lot of TV Ads and movies you see in the states are produced in México, call it videogames, Verizon campaings, etc...
Don't feel you are making a freaking huge favor because you hire an illegal mexican, same happens here with people from Argentina, Guatemala, Cuba and african countries, and we give here the best of welcomes instead of humiliate them, tell me who is more human?
O.k. no need to comment on the article,but how about our comments to the article.On the face of it most seem to agree,but in actual fact some of the comments above this one, i would consider racist.A quick example, so as not to sound 'preachy'.The idea that a particular race making racist comments about themselves is somehow o.k. Is in fact racist.Doesn't matter who is making the comment it is still a racist comment. Just, because you happen to be English, doesn't give you the right to make jokes about other English people, who may well be offended by what you say.The context is pretty much immaterial,don't you think?
ignorant, and nit even remotely funny, it's the kind of guys I laff at, durinng parties, because they sit and giggle and conversations like this.. they think its funny, in reality they are the joke.
