Thread summary:

By a random twist of pop corn fate, a truly disgusting hate crime was somehow connected with a Mordechai Ben David concert.

As it happens, Mordechai Ben David, of Yidden, Daddy Dear, Lichtigher Shabbos & other "controversies", turns out to be a racist.

Whether or not that makes him an idiot is up for discussion.

In other news, Mordechai Ben David is still the king.

South Africa is a beautiful place to visit, though its old flag is a symbol of its racist past. Oh, and the current Prime Minister can't count. That's not related to this thread, but it is something you should definitely know.

Midweek parev cholent was served. For a wider, more tasteless menu, please visit the "Pick your Poison" thread.

Thread recap?
Nothing at all. Haven't had such dull popcorn in quite some time.  ::) Frankly, I don't know how I just found myself in this thread. When I saw it in my unread replies I realized it was merged, but should be ignored.

I don't think someone making a stupid comment, even a racist one, automatically means we can just chalk him up as a racist. There are a lot of shades of grey.

The flavorless stuff lost in the primary and we were left with two choices both tasteless.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Wow. You're the first person who makes me feel young here 😉
Are you trying to guess my age?
The hints have been all over...


When we thought a 20MB hard disk was sufficient, and when a 40MB hard drive had to be partitioned into two partitions, the largest one being 30MB.
Calls to Eretz Yisroel on a special plan with AT&T (long distance, not wireless) = $2.50 (I think) for the first minute, $0.75 for each additional minute, and that was a bargain over the regular rates.
Now you're talking real prehistoric times  ;D (though some remnants of those were still in circulation that I can remember)
And I still remember my first call from a payphone to Eretz Yisroel, (and the only one done with currency, rather than other methods). It was over $9 for the first 3 minutes, you needed the operator to get involved, as she would do something to make the payphone swallow the coins after $3 were deposited, because otherwise the phone wouldn't take more than that.
Paying for the Holland Tunnel toll with Canadian Dollars for arbitrage (Oh and the toll was $2 back then).

See, the thing is, part of the problem with political correctness today is that conversation has lost all its nuance. Everything is partisan - black or white, pro or anti - there is no middle ground. You are entirely correct; it would be ridiculously stupid make such a strong claim about an individual based on a single word, especially someone who has numerous decades of public attention.

But... MBD is a racist.

He is still the king. Always will be. He has done an insane amount of good, and inspired and uplifted many in such sheer numbers I could never come close to having that kind of impact on the world. Nothing can or will detract from that.

But... MBD is a racist.

I don't know if I should take that as a compliment or as an insult.

Anyway, it's something like

So after all of those, one person comes and says he predates me. That makes me feel like a spring chicken. Everything is relative.
