Poll: Are you amused by racist slurs directed at YOUR own race? (18 votes)

Yes 61%
No 39%

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ethnic_slurs

Please note the meaning of ethnic slurs from the Wikipedia page. Statements like "black/white/yellow people are stupid/ugly/smelly/sheep etc" do not count.

This thread is about asking whether you find a particular racist slur that is directed at YOUR own race to be amusing.

I made this thread because I want to find out whether am I the only one who thinks that way. I for one finds a specific racist slur targeting my own race funny but I don't find others targeting other races funny.

NOTE: please avoid posting the racist slurs on this thread because comicvine are mostly meant for babies who can't tolerate such stuff.

My race is the human race, so I find remarks like “hairless apes” or “puny Earthlings” to be quite hilarious.

Yes, because it shows that I've annoyed them so much that they've resorted to petty attempts at insulting me, and that does put a smile on my face.

No I don't take enjoyment in people being blatantly racist to me.

Also that pretentious statement was totally necessary.

If it's funny, yeah.

Worst I've gotten is people assume I drink vodka because they think I'm Russian...I mean I do drink vodka, but you know, you get the idea. That or they joking call me a commie.

Also...

I am tremendously ironic.'

I can play the role of the "sluree" with delicious glee.

Or I can play the role of the "slurer" with equal but different pleasure.

In terms of contextual humor/comedy, probably.

In terms of malicious bullying, i think im already way past noticing these kinds of childish name calling and insults.
