Racism and humour.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Shailja Patel writes 'AIDS jokes are funny if you've never loved someone who died of AIDS. If you live in a bubble that allows you not to know that millions of Africans died, thousands of gay men died, of criminal state indifference and denialism. Because they were, after all, only blacks and queers. Comedy material, not lives worth grieving.

Ebola cartoons are funny. Unless your partner is a public health doctor, forced to choose every day between treating patients without protective clothing or abandoning them to save her own life.

Cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed naked, on all fours, anus presented as target, are anti-clerical snigger fodder. Unless you and half the men and boys and boy children and baby boys you know and love are named Mohammed.

Unless you and your brothers, cousins, fathers, sons, friends are at daily risk of random causeless stop-and-frisks, patdown-gropes, strip-searches, cavity-searches inside Enlightened Fortress Europe. Because they can.'
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: This is something the Guardian/Observer's owners must think about, with reference to their own attitude to Charlie Hebdo.

Removal of resistance: It doesn't do to be a neo-nazi - no matter how polite you are about it and how clean the luxury world you may use to hide the reality of the world from yourself. Unification: I guess it's a question of learning.
