Let's talk about Hulk Hogan (more importantly, reactionary censorship and over reach)
Are you offended that Hulk Hogan used the N Word in a private conversation about who his daughter was sleeping with, that was recorded in his own home, without his knowledge or consent, 8 years ago? Considering that a handful here have been horribly offended over Paula D and Donald S, I am assuming a few are offended by Hulk Hogan but I thought I would ask anyway because I have seen mixed responses in threads here about thoughts & feelings on interracial relationships. I have heard more than a few black women on this forum saying they do not believe in them, period, and I am sure some will have stronger emotions when it comes to their kids. Don't they always? I've watched a few reaction videos and I know some of you watch him so in case you have seen it, Tommy Sotomayors video titled "N****z Are Outraged Because Hulk Hogan Called N****z, N****z... lol." The video addresses this, the racist bone we all have in our bodies, wrestling culture of the 70s & early 80s (which would make these kids cry today) and is absolutely hysterical to boot. Now to rant... I'm a little fed up with the careful media attacks that leak some type of secret footage that deals with private, years old, conversations turning into a moral outrage. I'm more fed up by the reactionary (and then forgotten) public Outrage! Outrage! Now, it's television shows from the late 70s, and early 80s. Things my generation watched that went under attacked by the PC Puritans when we were kids and teens, and here we go again. I have 2 brothers (7 & 9 years older) so wrestling was on my TV every weekend. It was a show full of dramatics, commom street language, over the top fake plots and every stereotype the elite created and still hold on to no matter what they act offended by. The conversation flowed with insults from both people in the ring. Everyone dished it out (like the Jeffersons and All in the Family). That is what made it so loved by so many people. The language in 70s and early 80s wrestling is completely different than what more than half of Gen Y & all of Z hear today, because it was hit by the first PC Push. Now it is being hit by a second puritanical quest because people are so used to over reacting online. I'm not some Hulk Hogan fan (as I am of the General Lee). That is the superficial. What I am is disturbed by people who find it right and noble to attack and erase the past because someone said something in private, 8 years ago. Or because a woman used the N-Word after being robbed and having a gun held to their head 30 years ago. At this point I can't understand why some are not more upset/livid over the strict, self imposed, one sided censorship campaigns that go so far as to invade private conversations in someone's bedroom or a upset reaction after you were threatened with a gun. They won't remain one sided for long, trust me. The 80s & 90s taught us that. It would help if people had not been filled with the notion that black people can not be "racist". It's no where near a definition everyone has grown up with, and not believed by all. It might also help if people quit holding court online for something that is not even a crime. It's an opinion. I don't agree with it. Don't have to.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
