Topic Wiki

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.

Let's see, he called Obama black, and you called him a racist. Who owes the bigger apology here?



The one who is wrong.

Lol. One of those is a fact and one is an option.
I hope that's an admission.

I'm not who you think I am.

I think the comment was wrong. I don't think it is fair to brand him as a racist because of it.

The word is a slur. Plain and simple.  Outside of biblical context, no one on this forum has ever heard it mean just "black".

It's a moot point. Even if there are no negative connotations to the word, why did he say "The black person" instead of saying Obama or any other reference other than his skin color?

If it was a slip, he should just apologize and move on.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Instead of using Bibi if I said "that Jew" how would that be taken here?

Anti-semite. But it's a very bad comparison to what MBD said.

I can psychoanalyze why he thought it was relevant, but regardless, I think it was wrong. It's not as bad as using a slur, so it does make a difference.
