I only sent them to a few friends and one of my friends some one I actually sit next to when I am in the office told me that he was extremely offended and I should not be making fun of people in need.

I pointed out to him that he was stealing beer , not water , not food not even clothes but beer.
So then he mentioned to my boss that I was sending out racist pictures that I made on my work pc.
I used my home computer and used my personal Email to send them..
Am I screwed?
Are these truly racist or have we just become really pc about stupid shit like this. I am American with Mexican decent .. would it have been diffrent if the looter was white? or brown?

__________________________________________________________________________________


Update :
My boss pulled me into a confrence room at which point i was thinking well this is it.
He starts to laugh and asked me what the hell I was thinking. He agreed it was funny as hell but it was not work related and should not have sent it to co-workers. I agreed and told him it would not be done again. He said he is giving me a verbal warning NO write up but to not discuss it with anyone.
He said everything should be fine as long it did not get sent anywhere else :( other easily offended employees and our H/r was not contacted. ) .. then he told me go look like I was in big trouble and get back to work..


I dodged a bullet there .. I just started going back to school and would NOT be able to afford losing my current job..

Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

If you actually used your personal home computer to do it, tell your co-worker to f*ck off, and don't let your boss push you around.....

LOL I think the're funny. Probably be careful with them tho since some people have exetremely thin skin. The two have the same freakin hairstyle and that is just one eisily identifable attribute.

Dude, this blows....if someone cannot see the humor in that, and that there is a striking resemblence between the two, well fuck him if he can't take a joke....

Whose fault is it that the guy looks like an Urukai?

Okay well tell me what is so racist about it then . I have a picture with a guy that looked like a monster I simply replaced heads. I dont see anything racist about it.
What if the guy was white would it still be considered racist? or what if he was brown like me could they still call me racist.
I admit it is a little insensative due to the current situation these people are dealing with but he is stealing beer not water , or food!?

In a diverse work environment your ideas are not permitted.

For the sake of tolerance, your opinions will not be tolerated.

If someone is offended by what you posted, you must be punished. If that offends you, you are free to quit.

Your going strait to hell and I bet you'll find yourself unemployed there as well.

Christ, man--you're illustrating my point about lacking common sense. It's not about YOU thinking it's racist. It's about OTHER people deciding to view it as racist--and YOU sending it to your co-workers. I would like to say a great deal more--maybe I do need a troll account.

.

Okay I'll go as far as to admit that it may not have been my best judgement call but I thought it was funny and with all the $hit that is going on I just thought we could use some thing to laugh at. But to imply that I am a racist because of these pictures seems a little out of hand .
I am not trying to start a pissing match with you just wanted to know your reason so in case my boss shoots that at me I have a good counter.

Do you live in a bubble…

The intent don’t matter one bit, in todays PC world if someone can interpret it as racists you have a problem.

You should have know that and acted accordingly if you like your job.

You are doing this at work? You are an bonafide idiot! If you did it on company time on a company computer, you should update your resume and print it immediately. You'll need it!



........even though I thought it funny. Some things, like stealing beer when you need basic necessities, and fucking off on the company dime are not intelligent.

Just point out to your boss the fact that you have hispanic (minority) heritage. Then remoind him that it is IMPOSSIBLE for a minority to be racist.

If you accessed personal email fromwork computer you could be in violation of company policy regarding racist stuff. It doesn't matter if you think it's racist but your coworker does. I saw posts thought they were funny but doesn't matter.

If you are going to get into trouble it will be for your employer's computer/internet use policy...usually these are written, so that anything not directly related to work violates it.

Even accessing your personal e-mail maybe in violation of the computer use policy.

Hopefully, your supervisor is understanding...I hope this is the case.

*edit* Davidenorth...you beat me to it.

It's a known fact. If I were you, given your heritage, I'd tell him that I was feeling threatened. Then ask for a day off, cause you need to conference with your legal team.

Nothing in the photo art implies that you have anything against black people. This guy just happens to have an uncannily similar appearance to that ork. If he was white it would still be funny and it would still not be racist.

Where do you get the time to peruse through hours of LOTR footage looking for that one ork shot that perfectly matches the picture of your subject?

Tell me, is this racist >> ?

Yes, it's racist and STOOPID.


The "monster" show isn't a real person, just a hollywood creation. That simply ISN'T a 900 BC looter


Basically, these pictures prove nothing, show nothing, but racism.


Why not just post his face on a gorilla body? After all, you are trying to imply that blacks haven't kept up with evolution like white people.
