Why I gotta be the purple grape?

In Uncategorized on October 17, 2010 at 11:09 pm

You ever noticed how racist the media is? No really. Have you noticed? I have. And I have a few questions:

Why are black people the purple grapes? Now, doesnt that sound stupid? Like, on some, “This is such an ignorant observance” but no, really, we are always grapes. Still dont believe me? Ever heard of the Singing California Raisins? I saw this when I was in the 5th grade, and even then I knew that there was something wrong with it, though it didn’t upset me very much back then. It still doesn’t really upset me; its  more funny than anything, but in a “this is so sad and wrong” kind of way. And to add insult to injury, then Fruit of the Loom decides to personify their fruit underwear, and of course, the purple grape is black. I may have not been as upset with this fact if there had not been two bunches of grapes, with the green grapes (which is used to make white grape juice) being the white person. Even the purple Fantana is black! Wtf?!

Why was the Yellow Ranger Asian? In an attempt to discuss another racially misconstrued group, have you ever paid any attention to the first Power Rangers Setup?

Why the hell is the yellow ranger Asian? Like, does anyone see anything wrong with that? Did the same person that wrote the hymn “Jesus Loves the Little Children of the World” make up the racial color wheel? I mean, who the hell said that Red constitutes for Native American and Brown constitutes for Latino? Furthermore, why the hell would anyone with a brain actually play on this obvious generalization of a race? And it doesn’t help that these colors alone all carry their own stereotypes. So now, not only does yellow make you a coward, but it makes you Asian too. And not only are black and brown colors that signify things that are dirty, but they also make you African American and Latino as well. Sucks to be us.

PS: I am aware that these observances sound incredibly ignorant, but they’re observances nonetheless. 😛
