The Onion just needs to stop sometimes. Hiding behing “smart humor.” They failed again. This is satire? Seriously? Really?
Here is the “joke:”
BOSTON—In the midst of a widespread manhunt that has put the city of Boston on lockdown, CNN released a series of photographs today depicting the three obese Mexican women it claims are the chief suspects in the Boston Marathon attack. “My top-level sources have confirmed that the individuals depicted in these photos planned, coordinated, and put into effect this week’s deadly bombing,” said CNN reporter John King, speaking of the trio of overweight hispanic women, two of whom reportedly died in the late 1990s and one of whom has never actually visited the United States. “If you come across the suspects, please be careful. My sources tell me these women are armed and highly dangerous.” At press time, everyone at CNN was congratulating one another on the good job they’ve been doing.
Let’s say this: go ahead and make fun of John King and CNN’s mistakes and how the mainstream media, but why use these images and why are obese Mexican women the joke? And why is this even witty? While we are at it, there is still a tense situation in Boston. Another joke in poor taste, hiding behind “satire.”
We have no words, just this:
Here is the thing that I think people don’t get about racial satire, it doesn’t work when you are making a joke about an ethnicity other than your own. What does the white media, no matter how liberal or witty it presents itself, know about Latinos? How many Latinos do you think work at The Onion, Buzzfeed, Daily Show or Colbert Report? I guarantee it isn’t very many. How come most of our racial satire comes from straight white upper middle class douche bags? I have some satire, whites in media, having never experienced racism first hand, make light of it by pointing out how different other races are.
