Satire makes a point - that meme just replaces some unintentional racism with abject racism, with no point, only making idiots laugh.
It exaggerates the tone-deaf racism of the original H&M picture. It's textbook satire. Being offensive is the point.

And with some effort you could make a point without a passive aggressive remark about idiots.

You keep saying it's satire doesn't make it so. Acting like they're self-aware actually makes it more racist, because they're not actually aware at all that they're being racist and not satirical.

Would you still find it funny if they exaggerated it using a black kid and all the worst African American stereotypes?

I'm not offended, I find it tone-deaf and unfunny, completely missing the point of what they're trying to say.

It's funny how people are calling me out as being offended and telling me to lighten up, while they seem to be most butthurt when being calling out for their casual racism.

I keep saying it's satire because it is. Satire doesn't stop becoming satire when somebody is offended, that's often the point. Of course they're aware, they're deliberately highlighting racial stereotypes to make the joke. What makes you think they're not aware?

That was all ready done by H&M. Some people didn't think that picture was racist. These memes highlight the initial racism by showing the same concept in a different perspective. It's hard to see the racism when you don't like black people, but with white people or asian, it just might click for them.

I'm certainly not butthurt, and I haven't called anybody an idiot.

An explanation on how is this is likely going to go, some profanity with an announcement the member is blocking you.

Back on topic, a random picture:

I'll end this, because debating this with someone this ignorant about racial issues is pointless. Just understand that I'm not calling you racist, just obviously racially ignorant. And yes, anyone who laughs at that meme is an idiot.

What in the fuck does pointing out racism in pictures have to do with religion or politics? If you're conflating these thing, I don't think you understand these concept enough to even comment.

Because you guys are debating over the t-shirt picture in random picture thread. This thread is suppose to be a simple random picture and it's not to bring up the argument over whether it's racism or not. I mean, who give the fuck about t-shirt and move on.

Of course it's racist, that's the point. I never said it wasn't. My post you quoted but changed to "blah blah blah" specifically says: "they're deliberately highlighting racial stereotypes." My post before that said: "It exaggerates the tone-deaf racism of the original H&M picture" so I don't understand how you could read my posts then claim that I'm doubling down and saying the memes aren't racist. Your argument seems to imply that racism and satire must be mutually exclusive, but that's simply not true. If a humorist wanted to use satire to make a point about racism, how would they do it? By portraying racial stereotypes. Not only are you distorting my comments, you're being insulting.

Unrelated to the image, but creator Donald Bellisario has written a Quantum Leap film script.
