    Joe has said many stupid things, but I'm specifically referring to how he delivered his comments regarding black men in NY. HE can think/say what he wants about kung fu, but singling out black men in the city and impersonation act was a bit overboard.

    I always gave him a pass on it because to me he'll always be a TV comedian, but it wouldn't surprise me his delivery would ruffle a lot of people's feathers whether they practice kung fu or not. We villified the UCLA girl for doing similar things talking about Asians in the library.

    I still think this has to be April Fool's joke...

    This specific incident? Maybe, but you need to do a search because he's been doing this for YEARS.

    maybe I'm not remembering it correctly, but his caricature wasn't about them being black; it was about them being t34 d34dly kung fu mouth boxers. The 2nd sentence of yours implies that a few dudes in the parks in NYC represent kung fu as a whole, and that's just silly.

    it wouldn't surprise me his delivery would ruffle a lot of people's feathers whether they practice kung fu or not. We villified the UCLA girl for doing similar things talking about Asians in the library.
    -the black str33t NYC kung fu defenders are not a racial group like Asian people. They chose to do kung fu and say stupid things about it; Asian people were born Asian.

    -there's like, what, a dozen of them?

    -as stated, he was ridiculing their kung fu, not their blackness, so trying to associate the two is a bit of a stretch. Have you ever known a minority (any kind really) that tries to make every slight against them a racial attack even when its not? Its exhausting and their own communities often disparage them for it.

    -Joe Rogan is a million times more articulate than that dumb UCLA girl.

    -I'll bet you very few feathers were ruffled outside of the kung fu community.

    Like I said, it was his tone. We can agree to disagree on whether it was moderately offensive, it sounds offensive when I hear it.

    Maybe it's because I've heard the exact same way of caricature used to say a lot of stupid things about black people.

    Its funny because this could be said of Rogan or Blacktaoist, IMO.

    I feel compelled to point out that the actor who played Bruce Leroy in that film now trains BJJ with Marcelo Garcia.
