Oh My Face

This was featured on G4 T.V. 

Would if be funny if the guy wasn’t black? Is it the act of the faceplant itself or the way it is vocalized? The comments seem to be racially fueled.

    Nice find.

    1) is it funny?

    2) the vocalization sounds like an overdub — not his voice.

    3) race definitely “flavors” the interpretation but doesn’t exclusively define it.

    Gotta laugh at how ready any given instance of youtube content is capable of sparking a virtual race war. That *fact* has got to mean something about the state of American culture.

    of coarse the comments are racially fueled, it’s YOUTUBE DAMMIT. it’s a vortex for the ignorant and asinine. people will generally say whatever bullshit comes to mind, just for kicks. racist, sexist, homophobic, you name it, they’ve said it. just like we talked about in class, commenting, for better or worse, has become an endeavor in itself.

    as someone who used to skate, i’ve seen way more devastating/funny bails than this one. regardless of race, this wasn’t funny, and neither is g4 for the most part.
