Some of Eddie's ancestors?

Completely fucking brilliant. The music fit perfectly. Stamper, why won't you release that treasure trove of yours we know you're hiding?

All hail Stamper.

People are too fucking sensitive.

It really is only racist if people choose to see it that way. People make jokes about Native Americans all the time, I see stereotypes of white people being perpetuated; I see all sorts of things that are thought to be harmless (truly it is) and then someone makes something humourous with a non-humourous theme.

Slavery was the vehicle for the humour; it wasn't about slavery, but instead about a guy selling his friend out to someone else. Sure, it's titled "Cotton Roots" and there's definitely the master/slave relationship going on there, but the base of the fact is that one guy sold the other out. I thought it was really funny, even though I didn't laugh. People need to open their eyes and realize that humour isn't a bad thing unless it's a means of masking an underlying ideology.

If someone can make a funny animation that reflects my ancestors losing their land and being oppressed by European colonists, I'll find it hilarious. Get over yourselves. It was good.

I did not think it was racist, per se.

Nevertheless, I fail to see how it is "hilarious" as so many people have posted. It makes a sadly valid point, at how those who are oppressed will turn on other oppressed people to gain small favor, and then find themselves on the receiving end of maltreatment.

I think you are quite talented. I wish you well in your pursuits, and hope that, one of these days, you figure out a way to utilise your formidable skill in a more entertaining, constructive manner. Or, at least, in a way that is not deliberately designed to provoke a sophomoric response.
