    De Blasio is a douche. New York hates him.

    Honestly, however lame the joke may be, I don't see what's racist about it. The joke says nothing and assumes nothing about people based on their race as far as I can tell. Maybe there's a hidden message in there I'm not seeing.

    Google can help there. CP Time (colored people's time) is a term often used by the black community as a joke about black people being late (which apparently is a stereotype of black people).

    Yeah, I saw that in the article. I guess people feel its making light of the stereotype, even if it is not directly promoting or affirming it. If its used as a joke within the black community, I don't get why referencing it should be so alarming.

    What an unbelievably ill-conceived joke for a politician to make...

    Two white people referencing the stereotype that black people can't show up places on time - a subtle reference to the negative stereotype of laziness - yeah, that's a problem.

    As harmless as it may seem it was still in poor taste. I agree if it were done by either Cruz or Trump it would be a bigger deal.

    If Trump did it, he would probably gain votes.

    If Trump did it, it would be the biggest news since 9/11. I bet every news station would be covering it. A democrat does and it's swept under a rug.

    It's only a problem if the black vote has an issue with it.

    The outrage and discussion here in its context is not that much an issue.

    Obviously you guys are missing the point. Bigtexxx takes his racism very seriously, it is not a joking matter.

    This is completely disingenuous coming from the same goofball who said that Barack Obama wasn't really black because he went to college.

    I have to admit, I only went through the top of page 1 for the LOLs, but anybody else can go through the 11 or so other pages and come up with equally hilarious results XD

    It was a harmless joke in poor taste by politicians with a long history of support for minorities that is quite unlike your disgusting and well known positions on race.

    I mean who do you think is buying your crap any more? Why bother? It's just sad at this point.

    Referencing them and mocking them is a way of helping people see how stupid and ridiculous they are. Maybe you would understand if you suffered from any kinds of stereotypes.

    Take rednecks for instance. Most people deride rednecks as ignorant racists who think they can put a quote from MLK in their sig as some sort of defense shield against their own hypocrisy.

    But if I said, see there - that goes that darn redneck, with their freaking BMW and corporate lawyer job. So typical. That would be referencing a stereotype in a way to defeat it. But according to your logic, that would be wrong since even mentioning a stereotype makes one a racist.

    You are the definition of PC run amok.

    I didn't think the joke was a big deal but I'm not a fan of the way she is handling it.
