Prepare to be Offended

October 15, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

During the course of arguing that New Zealanders are too easily offended, I have been mocked for using “quasi academic dribble [sic.]” in the form of phrases like  hypersensitive umbrage-taking.  Point taken, so I will keep this one simple.  I read a story online just now that shone a light on the issue again.  The link is at the end, but here is the movie trailer treatment.

It sparked anger.

It was met with gasps and silence

It disgusted someone so much he walked out.

He was angered.

“It was a racist comment based on ignorance.” he said,

To the victim, it was distressing.

“It hurt us quite a bit.”

“We still hurt about it.”

The guilty party called it an absolute tragedy.

Another called it highly offensive and disappointing.

Yet another agreed it was both distressing and disappointing.

If you want to get to the bottom of this disappointing, distressing, disgusting, racist, ignorant, hurtful, gasp-, silence- and walk-out-inducing (absolute) tragedy, follow the LINK.
