New pinnacle of “racial outrage” found in Blake Lively’s “Oakland Booty” Instagram

David MenziesMission Specialist

This rant is for the social justice warriors, progressives, and professional students who hope to one day become human rights commissioners; just because someone makes a race-based observation or a race-based joke, it doesn’t mean that person is racist.

The latest celebrity receiving an online flogging courtesy of the usual village idiots is actress Blake Lively who is being crucified for a “racially insensitive” Instagram post.

Did she say she supports the KKK? That apartheid had its good points? That Hitler wasn’t really such a bad guy? Well, no.

Expecting a second child, wearing a gold-sequined gown at the Cannes Film Festival, she shared a photo of herself in that gown drawing attention to the fact that her rear end is getting bigger due to her pregnancy, captioned: “L.A. face and Oakland booty.”

Cue the outrage! Oakland booty? Is that code for a black booty? Are you saying that black women have big arses? How dare a Caucasian woman use her white privilege to appropriate something associated with African-American culture ...or body types ... or something.

The Urban Dictionary defines “Oakland booty” as “a booty that is large, round, A.K.A. bootylicious.”, no mention of race but Blake’s caboose is definitely an Oakland booty.

In this age of Kim Khardashian breaking the Internet with her chunk-in-the-trunk photos, a big derriere is aspirational for many women with arse-challenged women flocking to plastic surgeons to get butt implants so they too can sport an Oakland booty.

We’ve achieved peak racial outrage. Even if one makes a positive observation about members of a given race, it’s considered racist. Recall similar outrage over a Chris Rock joke at the Academy Awards a few months ago when certain Asian celebrities had a fit, prompting the Academy to issue a grovelling apology.

It’s now verboten to offer praise to specific groups. How perverse. How inexplicable. But then again, for having the temerity to laugh out loud at the race-based observations of Chris Rock and Blake Lively, I guess that makes me a racist too.

ooh, I just thought of a white girl besides Blake Lively who has junk in her trunk, Jennifer Love Hewitt!

Liza Rosie – the funny part is that Kim thinks it’s attractive. I wouldn’t want to be dragging around all that junk in my trunk. I have the opposite problem, I’m narrow through my hips. I always say, that I wish I could cut and paste!

Please name a white woman who isn’t grossly over weight or had implants who has an Oakland booty? Are the SJW’s suggesting that black and brown women don’t have big booty? White women everywhere wish they could have even half an Oakland booty. I wish I had an Oakland booty. Not a Kim booty, more a Jennifer Lopez booty.
I don’t think anyone should be allowed to EVER show that picture of Kim’s greasy barenaked rear ever again. It makes me gag everytime I see it. Yuck!

Personally, it’s about time Lively got an ass. Oh yeah and right on.

Lively is a tall, blonde, white woman who likes Mayonnaise – obviously she’s a racist.

When you incite the simpletons, this is what you get! The perpetually insulted crowd, who should grow the hell up and leave the rest of us alone.

“… just because someone makes a race-based observation or a race-based joke, it doesn’t mean that person is racist.” I have made the same point a thousand times over the past 30 years.
Humour was probably invented by cavemen sitting around the campfire pointing out each other’s differences. Before language was invented this would have been a way to signal friendship. You don’t make fun of someone you don’t like unless you’re asking for a fight. SJWs respond to this theory by covering their ears and screaming “NA-NA-NA-NA-NA, not listening, not listening, you’re a racist, you’re a RAAAAACIST!” Any excuse to throw a tantrum.
It’s worse than a virus, more than a mutation. SJWs have evolved into a separate species, distinct from homo sapiens sapiens. I suggest we start calling them “homo incorrectus.”

Dave, you’re usually a good reporter … so haven’t you got something better to do with your time than this inane blather, where you only encourage the brain-dead celebrities..?

Just listening to Sir Mixed Up A Lot’s tribal rant should be cause for concern. Much of the new music??? incites an attitude in our young that is becoming more and more disturbing. Check out some of the modern day lyrics! Having said that, the most concern should arise from the stupidity of SJWs, Human Rights Commissions and most other "Progressive"plans being rammed down our throats. Soon people will have to refrain from talking at all, the thought police are everywhere, and there is bound to be a cause out there that will trample over you no matter what you say. Do we really want a world full of Triggly Puffs or the like?Sorry, we’re already there.
