    Sorry Doc, but just look at threads like this one and how they end up in complete bs and that's just one of many lately. For god's sake, the discussions between multipaul and Timbo were better. A bit of it is fun, but it's gotten out of hand (in my opion of course). And then we have the discussions by insult and topping it off people who think it's cool to have JV's head on Norton's Nazi-tattooed body as their avator. Seriously.
    Hahaha. You think Norton liked having a swastika tattoed on him? I doubt it. But it was a movie. It's just a movie. A character. That's it. Putting JV's head is a joke. No need to look anymore deeply into it. There's much worse pictures..

    It is a joke. And I don't think anyone's arguing the right for someone to do it. But just because it's a joke, doesn't mean it's not in bad taste, intended or not.

    I saw a show or movie. I think it was a rom com with Katherine Heigl for some reason, not sure..anyways, there's this fat chick on a bus with corn rows and she makes a joke that her boyfriend or somebody likes it and thinks she looks like Ed Norton from American History X.

    It's a joke. It's been done before. I get that it's of a neo nazi character and that's where the humour is. If it was of some regular Joe character it wouldn't be funny, now would it?

    But that's also exactly why it's not funny. I'm not offended if someone thinks it's funny, and I'm not outraged about it in any way, but I just can't find much, if any, humour in it. It definitely won't be funny to a fair amount of people, and it will also be downright offensive to some, in the worst kind of way.

    I think if you could think of a comparison to another recognizable and memorable character, it could also be funny, whether that character was still some hateful SOB, or a heroic character, or just some nut from a comedy or something. Most of hte humour is in recognizing the character because he's from a movie, not because he's a nazi. THat will always have some shock value to some, but also if you pasted JV's head on Adolf Hitler's body, I'm sure you'd lose some of the fans of the Ed Norton association. The fact that it's from a movie kind of helps to filter out that it's an absolutely awful association to make in reality.

    People make Hitler jokes all the time. I saw a gif the other day that said something to the effect "don't be brought down by the ones you hate. Destroy them." And there's a picture of hitler and a text bubble that says "yup. Lol"

    I nearly spit my milk everywhere. Its the shock value that adds to the humour.

    Instead of getting offended. Take a joke as it is intended and laugh.

    Of course people make Hitler jokes. But people very rarely (never?) compare other real people to Hitler as a joke in a positive way.

    It's not about getting offended. It's just not in very good taste. I don't have to laugh at a joke because it doesn't mean to be in bad taste. It's in no way funny to me.

    I was kidding. Regardless, you show me a Raptors board that makes most members shake their head on most days. (RealGM, ProsportsDaily, RaptorsForum, etc.) We're all the same for the better part. Every one has knowledgable and well respected members and also have a number of "post fluffers". If people want to be apart of an active message board that will always be an issue and complaint amongst their respective members.

    Only thing I can suggest are for members not feed into these particular threads/discussions that most complain about. I shake my head at alot of the topics that are started here. At the end of the day, we're place for people to come share their two cents & opinions.

    As for the Nazi stuff, I agree its stupid. I also don't think Jonas would be happy to see his head replaced with Edward Norton's from "American History X" regardless if it was done in jest. If it offends one person, that's one person too many.

    Shake your head and giggle a little? Or just shake your head?

    The joke is that Jonas looks like neo-nazi Ed Norton from American History X.

    Yes I do because it would make you a white supremacist.

    - No problem with swastikas, which are clearly considered a NAZI symbol in the Western World
    - Has a very vocal sig emphasizing the fact that he thinks it's ok for white people to run around using the N-Word
    - Hates on black athlete for donating a million dollars to charity, acting like he's a bad person for it.
    - Possibly posts on stormfront.org... a white supremacist site where they talk about purifying America of multiculturalism...

    Yeah? While the only thing all that tells is that You're a presumptuous, judgmental, narrow-minded individual.

    Thanks guys, but we're done talking about white supremacy here at RR. If you want to continue, please do so via private messages or take it to your friendly neighborhood KKK site.
