RNOcommctr: Snoop Dogg is black.
I have a lot of respect for Snoop, after all, he paid the cost to be the boss! So it makes me racist if I admire him? Lemme get this straight, I should be ashamed of myself if I DON'T like black people, and I should be ashamed of myself if I DO like black people?

The website is ignorant and blatantly racist. Don't you guys have any respect at all for the many African-American members of a.net? You should be ashamed of yourselves.
On the 4th reply? I'd expected quicker !
I remember when a Vietnamese character in Miss Saigon was played by a caucasian. No, it wasn't the asian actors who threw a big fuss about it, it was the African American actors! Something was wrong there...
Now, after hearing about an African American version of Cinderella or whatever it was that Brandy tried to do (or whoever else, was the movie ever made?), what next? Snow Black?
I'm a Malayo-Polynesian, I go to a Citibank in Sydney Chinatown, the caucasian doesn't want to serve me because I'm Asian, they gave me a Chinese guy to talk to, in Chinese, and his English was so poor that I asked to seesomeone else... out came the Vietnamese guy... same problem. Out came the caucasian again... and the whole thing was repeated... 30 mins later, the bank manager wondered why I stormed out shaking my head...
Political correctness... is not about solving problems, it's about shoving the problems under the carpet...
You don't like that Ebonics translator? Go and complain to www.asksnoop.com, and not the humourous members of this site...
Back to the topic... IT'S ABSOLUTELY FRIGGIN' HILARIOUS!
When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !

I saw a thread somewhere else about the "Ebonics Airlines" sound clip & webpage & somebody else called it racist. The comedian who wrote & performed it is Shirley Q. Liquor, and he's (supposedly) black, so IMO it's not really racist.
