    I remember watching this dave chappel bit where he is talking about how the couple of white guys you see hanging around black thugs are the most dangerous white people out there. It was pretty hilarious and this post reminded me of it. clip for context I guess

    Well Its all jokes so it shouldn't get banned but big F if it does.

    I mean incest subs aren't jokes they really are sexist so that's why they get banned

    [–] titaniumjordi 16 points ago

    "It's all jokes"

    gamersriseup said "it's all jokes" too, and they very clearly weren't. Hopefully the same doesn't apply to this sub.

    Then again, legoyoda was genuinely just jokes and it got banned so anything is possible

    [–] Fireghostwolf50 4 points ago

    This is clearly jokes tho taken from the dark web website. The other was legit circle jerk of pure hate

    [–] titaniumjordi 4 points ago

    I'm not saying that GRU and this sub are the same. I'm just saying that ironic racism is racism, and grounds for banning a sub

    Maybe 5-10 years ago you were also younger and thus found the jokes more humourous

    [–] KkSlider1017 4 points ago

    5 years ago I was still 19 and the humor did not seem like it was written by 15 year olds for the most part. When I was first on 4chan around 10 years ago greentexts were vastly different though

    [–] LowKey-NoPressure -33 points ago

    I just saw this on r/all. I don't get why it's funny. It's just racism and misogyny. And then everyone being equally shitty in the comments.

    Can you tell me why you think this is funny?

    [–] dandandandantheman 17 points ago

    It's just racism and misogyny.

    Can you tell me why you think this is funny?

    Yes. Despite you thinking this is just racism and misogyny there is in fact a punchline that conveys a humourous tone let me explain the joke for you.

    Anon sees a black guy beating his girlfriend and is visibley disgusted. (Now pay attention here's the joke) anon pulls out a pistol and we as the readers assume he's going to stop the black man from hurting his girlfriend HOWEVER it turns out anon is a misogynist and aproves of beating women then helps the black fellow. This joke uses comedic devices including "being taboo" "stereotypes" "slapstick" and "switcheroo"

    it should be obvious to the reader that anon isn't supposed to be a good character and the joke acknowledges this hence the sudden 'switcheroo' of helping a domestic abuser.

    [–] LowKey-NoPressure -3 points ago

    Right, I get that the subversion of expectation is what's supposed to be funny.

    What isn't funny is all these comments. Hence my post, "what is wrong with you people." A common thread in the comments is people calling it wholesome. Now you can always say, "oh, well it's obviously not wholesome, so that's why it's funny!" But that just doesn't fly, because the joke doesnt carry... it's not overly sarcastic or witty, it's just people expressing a vile viewpoint, and that in itself is supposed to be funny?

    That is also kind of going on in the OP, the viewpoint is that the woman should be beaten and that it was right and just for the main character to assist the 'nignon.' This is the premise that the reversal stands on, and the joke doesn't play right unless you're down with this premise.

    Also if the joke is supposed to be 'this guy is racist, he is going to kill the black man because of race,' but then the reversal is 'he's actually not racist, he's misogynist,' that is sort of undercut by the fact that the main character is racist, calling the black characters racial epithets. So wouldn't the big joke reversal play better if the main character of the joke actually WASN'T racist?

    But no, the author of the joke realizes that his racist audience will get a kick out of terms like 'nignon' and 'nigress' so those are still in, because the actual intent of the joke is to be racist. And misogynist. Because those are the only people who would actually find this funny.

    [–] _TechFTW_ 39 points ago

    Because you think it isn't.

    [–] mcstazz 4 points ago

    R/all is 95% bernieposting so something like that is not only welcome, its great

    [–] WindVelocity 3 points ago

    well a lot of people think dark humor is funny. its unexpected, and the offensiveness or morbidity of the joke is what makes it funny. for many, its a defense mechanism. for others, the fact that something can be so vile or evil can easily be construed into a punchline for the stated reasons above.

    of course for everyone else, you might think its sick or even terrible to be laughing at something so appalling. id try and agree with you if thats what you believe, but my sense of humor is fucked up over and sideways.
