Those Tests Are Rigged, Anyway

Posted in Blogged Down, Racism Corner at 1:51 pm by

Racism is a heavy charge to be throwing around. So with that in mind, I’m not so quick to label a website that has taken particular glee in

a) suggesting that Mike Tyson can’t read,
b) wondering if Isiah Thomas can use a computer and
c) mocking Vince Young for his allegedly lower-than-low score on a standardized test.

I’m not saying the blog in question has some kind of agenda in questioning the intellectual capacity of prominent black men or anything. I mean, if that isn’t a demographic their 2 advertisers actually care about, why should the author or publisher?

Young, by the way, is offering you the opportunity to have your picture taken with a Heisman Trophy runner-up and National Champion for just $99. As VY is likely to stroll away with more cash that afternoon than a year’s worth of online casino ads are paying The Whoopie Cushion Family, if nothing else, he’s got a head for business.

    Not everyone could be so lucky as to have the immortal Amish Records advertise on their site.

    well, it had to happen sooner or later, Joel. You’re finally right about something. Everyone isn’t as lucky to have the truly excellent Amish Records advertising on their site.

    Of course, there would be so much more dignity in accepting funds from online gambling sites. Or repeatedly lying about who the advertisers are while trying to attract others.
