That was posted a while back.

It's amazing the amount of thought that has gone into that research and commentary.

When in fact the whole thing can be summed up easily..


Lootie was thirsty.

It made me laugh.

I forgot how funny some of those were.

But it was REALLY funny reading the bullshit she came up with to EXPLAIN the racism, that didn't exist.

Some of those pics are comic genius.

"If you can’t see how a Black man being driven down the street so that he can escape and return to his own planet has racist connotations, I’m concerned about your knowledge of history and the current plight of the KKK. There are plenty White Supremists who just want the Black man to “go back where you came from.”

DUPE

Haha - i get to say that.

Here is my email to that lady and her reply:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prof. Randall,

I happened by your student's "analysis" of various "lootie" images she found on the Internet. Since her contact information was not available, perhaps you could forward this note on to her.
While I can see that the class you are taking is entitled "Race, Racism, and the Law", I think one is looking a bit too hard for something that isn't there. This particular looter image has captured the imagination of the internet and has spawned dozens if not hundreds of Photoshopped images involving him in various situations. I don't think this was spawned out of hatred or racism, and at worst was making a bad joke out of a bad situation. One must look at WHY these images were created. One must also look at why THIS image was manipulated and not the dozens of other photos of looters.

Answering the second question first, it is pretty obvious why this looter was chosen. He is easily the most photogenic and has features that are the most comical. In short, he is funny looking. The situation he is in is also comical. Not having enough beer in the tub, he must add one more to the back pocket. He is also filling up Heineken, a beer that conjures images of Germans in turtle-necks, not citizens of Jackson Square. The juxtaposition of these elements leads to where the humor comes from.

She also worried about the assumption that the man was actually looting, versus just saving his own beer. Well, according to the AP tagline that came with the photo, "A looter carries a bucket of beer out of a grocery store in New Orleans on Tuesday, Aug 30, 2005...", he was looting. This is the source of the image and of course what everyone went by.

As to the answer of the first question, people have too much time on their hands. Indeed, what I believe is the first spoof of the images is a well done Heineken spoof, as seen on snopes.com - http://www.snopes.com/katrina/humor/heineken.asp . I personally find it exceptional satire. On the Internet, one good idea deserves several copy cats. As this image spread via email and forums, multiple sites had contest and groups of people make new and additional spoofs. As you may well know, there is no quality control on the Internet, leading to a mixed results for the rest of the altered images. Some of them were stupid and unfunny. I could concede a couple of them perhaps crossed the line, but boredom, beer, weed, and 2 friends looking over your should telling you to draw boobs on him were the main forces in the creation of these images, not racism.

Furthermore, I find the analysis of most of the individual pictures to be far reaching at best. In fact, if I didn't know better, I would have assumed that her analysis was a parody. It is so over the top with far reaching exaggerations that it has become a satire.

Perhaps I am being too hard on your student, for she is in school to study law, not the subtleties of humor. Lawyers are rarely known for their humor, though they are often the victims of it. She should at least be familiar with the English language and the definitions of its words.

rac·ism
n.
1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

sat·ire
n.
1. a. A literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, derision, or wit.
b. The branch of literature constituting such works. See Synonyms at caricature.
2. Irony, sarcasm, or caustic wit used to attack or expose folly, vice, or stupidity.

It is pretty clear to me that they are not mocking this man's race, but using sarcasm to attack his folly and vice. I also advise her to spend more time on her studies, not arguing on Internet forums, as doing so is often a wasted exercise.

Respectfully,

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Steve Novak
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Her reply was:
It is clear to you because you don't want to see the prejudice and stereotypes that the images promote (the second definition of racism). Something can be both satire and racist. Her analysis is not strained or over the top. The situtation may be comical to some, that doesn't change how the images promoted stereotypes. even if there was no intent to promote stereotypes, in fact the pictures do promote stereotypes. And because they were distributed they promote prejudices and of course, according to your own definition that is racism. That is all her analysis says.

------------------------------------------

She was also the one who put out a paper on how too many Law Schools in the US are "white". Uses the word "whiteness" actually. Its clear to me the lady is stick in 1960 and ignores the fact that MOST people are no longer racist and that all races are afforded the same opportunities.

And everyone stopped being

Her theory is further exposed for the trash it is when you take into account that various people created those images without coordination; it wasn't some organized effort by the internet KKK to keep the black man down.

It made me think about the past views that we have had, that the world was flat, that Earth was the center of the universe, that the Sun revolved around us, and some of the current stereotypes that are perpetuated today...

I though this might be a good time to help the future lawmakers see the racism that exists even in comedically based pictures.

I am saddened by how many of you don't realize that those pictures are racist.

I hope you'll do some self reflecting...

In fact, the man you call “Lootie” was essentially fighting for his freedom against the waters that were holding him captive.

You are saying that all Black men are the same, criminals and superstars alike.

While I was glad to see there was one family of color being represented in the picture...

The pictures created quite a conversation piece in my Race & Racism in American Law class today.

I am an Ultra-Conservative Republican.



There ain't NO frickin' way that bitch is an "Ultra-Conservative Republican".

I mean, just LOOK at all the touchy-feely irrational PC-bullshit she packs in there.

This ignorant slut is as much an "Ultra-Conservative" as *I* am a member of "La Voz de Aztlan".

And here is another problem with her little theory... given the vast number of Lootie pics on the Internet, isn't it possible (and even likely) that some of the people who Photoshopped Lootie were themselves BLACK!?!?!

There's also another facet that the libtards miss in their quest for an "everyone is equal" utopia. A lot of people are just ugly. Ever notice that those who whine about racism and sexual harassment are FUGLY? Look at "Da Reverends" Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Both of them are really ugly.

You only feel sexually harassed if a chick is ugly. You won't get mad when you didn't get hired if the job is full of ugly chicks.

One of my Looterchops made it on her website...



"Picture 14, Lazy Lootie getting a beer handed to him while he lies about. Though this picture at least shows a White man on high keeping a Black man down by giving him an addictive substance, it once again shows the Black man relaxing and taking handouts. Notice, too, that the children (or cherubs/angels) are with the White man, who is clearly being shown as a God. Hmm, a White God, I think you might be using that good ole White supremist theory that “God created (White people) in his image.”

Yep... that's exactly what I was thinking when I made that.

I'm more shocked that Lootie hasn't come out to start claiming his fame and banking on his popularity.
