Humor? I didn't see what he said as humorous at all it had no bearing on the story (there are all types of poor people). You see that Wombat didn't want any part of it because it was totally uncalled for. Now Im not the type to scream racism every time i hear something racially insensitive but what Cheapy said was totally f*cked up. Not just because she was black if she would have been Latino or Asian or something else there might not have been as much of an up roar but it still doesn't make it right. People need to check themselves before saying stuff like that.
I have to agree with CZEN2 and what a couple others have been saying on the whole "Was she black?" comment. I want to start first by saying that I don't think the comments were "racist" because that implies some sort of hate for another race, which I don't think Cheapy has nor is he promoting. But the comments come off as racially insensitive in the least, ignorance at the most.
I have also been a listener for a while now and as others I found this comment particularly off-putting, so much so I too had to stop listening. But I also think that Cheapy has the right to say what he wants whether or not we agree with it. We can hold him accountable, and air our own opinions and then step away from the CAGcast, as some have done, but ultimately it is his show and he can say or do what he wants. I think that Cheapy does realize that some of his words do offend people, like when he used to say "gay" for describing things, and that this comment really comes down to reflecting a lapse in judgment on Cheapy's part. So at the least I hope Cheapy sees that some found it offensive and that it can't merely be chalked up to humor in all cases.
That being said, I love the show and I'll continue to check it out from time to time. As someone who doesn't necessarily see themselves as racially sensitive (I have a South Park avatar so really how racially sensitive can I be), I just wanted to chime in with my own two cents.
