Do the White Thing!

1/3/2007 9:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

When Michael Richards screamed the N-word at the Laugh Factory back in November, he went on "The Late Show with David Letterman" to apologize. When aspiring rapper Persia used it to insult fellow rapper John Brown, she was forced to wear a necklace that says "N*WORD" on it for an entire day.

Welcome to VH1's "ego Trip's The (White) Rapper Show."

Premiering next Monday, the show seeks to add a new pasty face to the Caucasian hip-hop scene by putting 10 aspiring white rappers into a house (Tha White House, actually) as they battle it out for a $100,000 prize.

The show has its comedic elements; a woman rapping about her C-section scar stands out as one of them. The show also tries to tackle issues of race in the culture as well. Yeah, you have to see it.

"I think for entertainment's sake, it was a given that it was going to be tongue in cheek, poking fun at white people," John Brown told TMZ. "But at the same time, I think there were a lot of challenges and a lot of experiences that were dead serious."

Check out "ego Trip's The (White) Rapper Show" when it premieres January 8 at 10:30PM on VH1.

I'm so glad it's politically correct to make fun of whiteys nowadays. If n*ggas weren't allowed that, they'd be shooting the Mickie D's worker down the street.

A caucasian person doing rap music is like Iris Avila singing The Star Spangled Banner in Spanish. Hey dum dums making racial jokes of other ethnic groups put this in Donald Trumps peace pipe. How would you like it if your race was insulted. It is Bush league crap.

WTF    

Hmmm.....how about a show where black people perform country music....

I see it like this: Everyone can make fun of everyone or else STFU. You cant have it both ways. Want to make fun of whitey? Fine. Dont blow a gasket when someone makes Blazing Saddles II.

You're right! You're an ignorant piece of slim who is
entitled to his opinions and yes, freedom of speech. Still, that word is just so
ignorant. And just as useless as spic, honky, jew, chink or any of the
other words like it. And people who go around gleefully saying them are
sad. But I hope the next time some calls you a name, I hope they
don't say anything racist. Just call you what you are. A hateful dumbass.
I'll pray for your soul.

Screw, white people, screw black people. Screw you all!

This is all about ratings. If "nice" things on tv got any ratings, there would be more of it. Watching a bunch of stupid people (not caring what race) try to be rappers is dumb. If I want to watch failures try to be stars, I'll watch The Simple Life or American Idol.

And how about some f-ing diversity on tv. I want to see more asians on tv!

We, are not amused.    

Ah, to coin a phrase "Those were the days" Use to be people celebrated the diversity of America by MAKING FUN of our differences through stereotypes. Shows like "All in the Family" wouldn't have a Chinaman's chance in hell getting on the tube today. That sucks. We have become a nation of easily offended splinter groups, just waiting for the slight to come!
I miss the old America, I died in vain.
Happy now, bitches?

To jess:

Little Jess is passing his parents' bedroom in the middle of the night, in search of a glass of water. Hearing a lot of moaning and thumping, he peeks in and catches his folks in The Act. Before dad can even react, Little Jess exclaims "Oh, boy! Horsie ride! Daddy, can I ride on your back?" Daddy, relieved that Jess not asking more uncomfortable questions, and seeing the opportunity not to break his stride, agrees. Jess hops on and daddy starts going to town. Pretty soon mommy starts moaning and gasping. Jess cries out "Hang on tight, Daddy! This is the part where me and the milkman usually get bucked off!"

Why is it that "Cracker" is OK to describe a white person and there doesn't seem to be any problem but the minute you say ANYthing about another race..it's racism? Could you imagine if we had the United Caucasian College Fund or White Entertainment TV? (There is a United Negro College Fund And BET) Minorities are the BIGGEST racists of them all. I am not buying it anymore...if you cannot treat all races and cultures with respect, you have no right to expect respect in return.
