Yes, but in that way everybody is at least a little bit racist ☺

In the AVENUE Q way!

It you follow his social media you'd know he's the greatest ideological criminal among the liberal Twitterati. /s

 

I like that Devin speaks truth to power (which I guess is randos online). And a person who speaks his or her mind is destined to say some stupid shit every now and again, because we all do. But he's a well-reasoned man, and he luckily has just enough humility and self-awareness to stop short of being a blow-hard. Respect.

 

And also, I'm of the opinion that it's better to err on the side of being a blow-hard about social and political issues then to keep quiet about them. So he's right up my alley.

No. It's fine to disapprove of a movement or scene of some kind. To say Devin is racist is an overstatement, and to argue about it is really tedious.

Haha are ppl actually treating this poll seriously? It sounded pretty facetious from the episode.

 

People aren't taking the poll "seriously," but the discussion on the back end of the episode about culture was interesting, so people are chatting about it on a message board.

Devin may be a little racist, but not enough that he should really worry about it. If only because when you look at all the many, many things wrong with Devin, it's no big deal. "Racism" is at most a tiny sliver of the "what's fucked up about Devin" pie. ;)

Fuck that threat. I'm Swiss. Therefore, I'm allowed to be neutral. Also, psst... we've got that Nazi gold, Devin.

As has been said before, no, Devin is not a racist. At least not a confirmed racist.

 

He's an ass. A confirmed ass.

 

But he's a bearded man in his 40s, angry at the world, certain he knows everything about everything. He's not a rare ass, by any means, just an unusually loquacious ass. With a mike.

 

For what it's worth, his ass is still enjoyable. You work that ass, Devin.

Some people are definitely taking it seriously ;-)

Im Pretty sure Devin is not a racist because i dont think it is racist to make assumptions on a culture by their cultural exports i mean if it is then everyone does it

 

Amy argued that the perception of american films is not just dumb big blockbusters but as someone who lives in Pakistan i can say that was the perception i grew up with america was always McDonalds coca cola Transformers and drones to us

I find his defenses of Temple of Doom and Gunga Din troubling, especially since it comes exactly out of that colonial "boys adventure" nonsense.

 

Haven't listened tot he episode yet, however I wouldn't call him a racist. just someone who's locked into their own opinions and experiences.

This is probably the best response I've read to anything, ever.

40% Racist and 60% Not Racist isn't a bad split, all things considered. Most folks would fare worse!

 

Actually, was that Brexit-vote before or after Devin travelled to the UK? Just saying...

Since then, but unfortunately the racism here predates Devin, it's been our main export for hundreds of years.

Lest anyone else make the mistake of assuming this forum is a venue for continuing arguments than began on Twitter, allow me to disabuse you of that notion. We don't tolerate attacks on hosts here, period.

I didn't post anything harsher than the things people said during the Andrew Ti-Matt Besser beef, or the people taking Cameron Esposito's side against the HDTGM episode discussion, and those folks didn't get deleted for it. What crosses the boundary into making it an attack, versus just an acceptable criticism, so I know in the future?

It's a blurry line, further blurred by the fact that Devin apparently invited people to create this poll on The Canon. The difference is that the Andrew Ti-Matt Besser beef was kicked off by Besser himself on I4H, and the majority of people complaining about Cameron Esposito on HDTGM were able to do so without straying into personal attacks. (For the record, I did delete several shitty "unfunny hag" comments from that thread.)

Everyone is a little racist, Devin assuming that some anime is pedophilloic, is like pretty reasonable racism. I mean fetishes in japan are fucking nuts. Not to mention that Japan is a country that only made child pornography illegal a few years ago.

This post is way more racist than saying anime is for pedos.

Not a racist. Where there's actual evidence of racism, it's probably racism. If there's no actual evidence of racism then it's probably not racism. This is a very applicable rule to be applied to all debates of racism. Has the person said they don't like a race, or been proven to DO things that inhibited people of a specific race because of their race? That is when you can say "yeah that guy is probably a racist."

I don't think he's prejudiced, but I think that every person is a product of two frequently opposing forces, one being the subconscious mind that is more easily influenced by surroundings and media and the conscious mind that is more thoughtful, aspirational and idealistic. I think people with prejudices are driven by subconscious or animal mind over which their conscious or civilised mind wields little influence. I think this is why Devin genuinely claims to be a feminist and yet also sometimes gets into trouble for saying stuff that people consider sexist. It isn't an uncommon problem for men raised in a 21st century western culture to possess this internal conflict. We can't always break free of the influence of our social conditioning.
