Jerry Seinfeld takes on P.C. idiot, gets called a racist in return

Via Doug Ernst: This shouldn't surprise a soul:

Buzzfeed Editor Editor Peter Lauria: I have noticed that most of the guests are mostly white males. Of 22 episodes youíve had ó

Seinfeld: Yeah, letís get into that. Take a look over here, Peter. What do you see? A lot of whiteys! Whatís going on here?!

Oh, this really pisses me off. This really pisses me off, but go ahead. [...] There were a lot of things about ĎComedians and Carsí from the very beginning ó the first ten I did were all white males and people were writing all about that. People think itís the census or something. Itís gotta represent the actual pie chart of America. Who cares? Funny is the world that I live in. Youíre funny, Iím interested. Youíre not funny, Iím not interested. I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that, but everyone else is kind of calculating ĎIs this the exact right mix?í To me itís anti-comedy. Itís anti-comedy. Itís more about PC nonsense than ďAre you making us laugh or not?Ē

In response, complete dolt Kyle Chayka at Gawker says Seinfeld is a racist:

Jerry Seinfeld, the most successful comedian in the world and maker of comedy for and about white people, isn't interested in trying to include non-white anything in his work.

Which is too bad, because Seinfeld is downplaying the work of everyone from Richard Pryor and Bill Cosby to Aziz Ansari, Mindy Kaling, and Eddie Huang, who are all in various stages of their own sitcoms that just might turn out to be the next Seinfeld.

In conclusion: Yes, comedy should represent the entire pie chart of America, and the glorious, multicolored diversity pie should be thrown directly at Jerry Seinfeld's face.

Are you KIDDING me??

Hmm. Let's see what sort of "multicolored diverse" articles Mr. Chayka has written of late:

  • "Kraft Reports String-Cheese Recall, Probable Shortage." I'm sure many people of color were dying to know about this.

  • "Up to a Billion Birds Die in the U.S. Annually Crashing into Windows." But ... how many were birds of color?

  • "Bitcoin Is the Latest Plot to Save the Post Office." How many minorities even know about bitcoin?

  • "NYC Waiters Can Now Legally Give You Water Without Asking." Look at how Chayka skips the word on fast food joints, popular among lower income minorities.

  • "Chili Peppers Bassist Owns Up to Faking Super Bowl Half Time." How many minorities are fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, pray tell?

  • "Eleven-Year-Old Attempts Suicide After Bullying Over My Little Pony." What, no bullied black child to write about??

  • "Did Emma Watson Paint This Angsty Self-Portrait?" Really?? No minority painter to write about, Chayka?

Of course, you see how utterly ridiculous this is. And for "progressives" like Buzzfeed's Lauria and Gawker's Chayka, "multi-colored" and "diversity" are only necessary when it comes to Caucasians. Unless, that is, when it comes to applying the concept to themselves. (See also here and here.)

Maybe next Chayka can do an article on this worthy topic: Using white paper can cause racism in young children. I sh** you not. So says, natch, an ďearly years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity.Ē

The very best thing we can do to such complete nonsense is just what Seinfeld did -- laugh at them and look 'em in the eye and tell 'em how f***ing ridiculous they are.

The level of political correctness these days is ridiculous. I mean, Seinfeld is saying that he's colorblind; he doesn't care about race, he cares about whether or not the comedians are funny, but in today's messed-up world, simply being colorblind is considered "racist" by the hyperdogmatic PC dolts. People who see everything through a racial lense are the most depressing people out there. This Chayka is a complete moron.

I do laugh at people like that, especially when they call me a "racist." It shows they have nothing substantive to say.

Well said, my friend!

And if you've noticed the episodes have all been shot with Jerry's friends - in New York.

Thanks, Hube! Plus Chayka ignores the fact that Seinfeld is good friends with black comedian Chris Rock and also Aziz Ansari. He spoke kindly of both Bill Cosby and Richard Pryor. Chayka is just another loon who sees everything through a racial lense.

I wonder if he's even watched Seinfeld? He claims it's "only for white people," but that's nonsense. I had a black co-worker at McDonald's who said Seinfeld was his all-time favorite show.
