    I don't have any black friends. And I don't think I even know anyone who has any black friends. Then again, there isn't many black people here.


    There's way too many black culture in the world to pin down one way of "acting black". I guess I know what you're getting at unfortunately....but it's still racist. Even if you're high.

    I think that there's a difference between being racist and making generalizations based on observations. Observations tell me that many black people like rap music, so stating so is not racist. However, it IS racist to say that all black people like rap music. I know they don't all like rap, and there are many white people that do.
    So, this thread walks a fine line, but it all depends on the posters making the comments. Am I going to get people hating me for this?
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    Well, I guess people have different opinions of what's racist or not. Stereotypes are kinda racist, in my opinion.

    Yes, I am. I know, it's pretty sad, isn't it?

    Yeah, they are. But they have to have a kernel of truth to become a stereotype. However, people blow them way out of proportion to ridiculous levels. That isn't cool.

    No, I thought many of the first posts were funny. I think I favorited a few.

    Oh, thank you very much! Considering there is comparatively little info about Greg known to the public, I thought it would be a fun challenge to make such a page. I think Greg deserves a fan page, even though he'll never care that it exists, haha.
    To be honest, it's hard to keep thinking up new ones that are as good as the first ones. I still have some good ones, but I don't want to post them all right away, or I'll have nothing left. Know what I mean?

    Yeah. Well here's a thread that could help you out:
    http://offspring.com/community/showt...K-appreciation

    We should probably let this thread get back on topic.

    Thanks for that link! Honestly, I think this thread should probably become a dead thread.
