Obama is in Town

Obama is in Town


America’s excuse is that he is worst kind of republican ever. :XD:

Denmark saying, "The master negro" needs some explaining.

The Danish words for "downer" ("nedern") and "the negro" ("negern") sound very alike. That has hilarious results when people from certain parts of the country try to say, "That’s such a downer". These poor people are not being racist. They just mean to say “downer” and it comes out as "the negro" because of their dialect.

On top of that we often use the word "master" instead of "very". ("That was master cool!")

So if people with a certain dialect want to say that something is "Very much a downer" it comes out as "It’s the master negro".

It's hilarious. :XD:

All hail King Negro Obama the Tyrant of Health Care and Failed Military Activities! - Republicans being sarcastic. They don't actually worship him.

To add to Iroquois comments I am both a black American and Native American. You will never get a universal answer (black, afro-american, african-american, people of colour) or consensus. depends who you talk to . Better to just respect our diversity rather than quibble over verbiage.

I also lived in Uganda and Kenya (and briefly in Mauritius) and the cultural divide between Black Africans and Black Americans were as distinct I suspect as among Scandinavians. i could go on and on, but I'm just enjoying binge reading these comics.
