The end of ethnicity: Joe Katzman says:
Welcome to the 21st century, where the best golfer is black, the best rapper is white, and the best new reggae artist is… Jewish?!?
Consider Charles Barkley displeased.
Er, individual celebrities are a pretty poor measure of cultural advancement. We’re way ahead of where we used to be, but nowhere near nirvana.
In other words, there are several million black women for every Oprah.
Who’s the black golfer? Can’t be Tiger Woods. He’s a multiethnic (Caucasian/Black/Indian/Asian) with a good tan.
Oliver, no one is near nirvana.
Sean Paul is what they’re calling reggae these days?
I thought Barkley got that from Chris Rock?
Golfers like me get NUTTY when Tiger is called ‘black’!!!
He’s ‘less black’ than Halle Berry, Lenny Kravitz, and any other of what used to be called ‘mulattoes. Sheesh.
Chris Rock did indeed do that “best golfer is black, best rapper is white” gag on TV, I’m pretty sure before Katzman.
