what you did there.
what you did there.
Your definition of what can be deemed offensive is completely wrong. You obviously have never taken any corporate legal compliance training before.
Is that where I should go to learn about cultural sensitivity?
Some of the more self-righteous Rastafari might be offended, because dreads hold religious significance for them. But if they're that uptight, who cares what they think?
uptight Rastafarians at the Big House on game day.
those rapscallions, getting all drunk up on Geritol, and telling you to sit down the whole game.
A cumulative probability problem.
Let's go with the thought that the likelihood of any one person getting pissed at you is small -how 'bout 1/1000?
There's 109,000 people at the game. Let's guess that only people in your section have a reasonable shot at seeing you -there's like what 42 sections? That's roughly 2600 people.
Expected number of people pissed off 2.6.
Chances of not pissing a given person off 999/1000 looks ok but cumulative chance of getting away without agita almost zero.
Several people will be ticked.
Of course you could also estimate the cumulative probability of highfives and compare lol.
Sorry for the stats I had my second latte so I am overly awake
Why would this offend anyone? Its offensive to me that we have to constantly ask if things may offend someone. Unfortunately, it seems that this is the trend now though.
Just don't paint your face black, and you should be fine!
As a hockey player, I am OFFENDED by people wearing mullet wigs at hockey games for a promotion. It's offensive.
[Clap, clap, clapclapclap]
No. But I would advise against the blackface.
There's a Ted Danson in blackface joke somewhere in my brain, but for the life of me, I can't find it.
going to a game, wearing a dread wig, superman tights, and a blue cape. Though instead of the "S", I would have a "16".
Then I realized I am pushing 40, and said to myself. Are you an Idiot? Grow Up!!!
If I were a student, in the student section, it would be cool...
I think most people would get it. I think it would be offensive if you made your face look black.
he is too stupid to make up his own mind on something and you guys all go off making fun of him. Shame on you.
is our own Clarence Beeks didn't suggest (then cut and paste or link) Dan Aykroyd's Louis Winthorp III NYE train-riding Rastafarian.
Randolph Duke: "Where's Beeks? Where in the hell is Beeks?"
now if you were to put black face paint on, I'd consider it offensive. Otherwise, you have my approval.
Even though I thought it was stupid, think about the Manny hype that went on in Dodgers Stadium - they had a whole section named after him in the outfield (Manny Land) where people wore dread wigs and all kinds of stupid stuff.
Off Topic post of the year.
As long as it's obvious that you're wearing the dreads in support of Denard then I would think it would be alright. I'm sure if someone confronted you about it you could explain yourself. However, I am a white guy so I'm not sure that I'm the best judge.
need to stop being sooo sensative!!
Rock the dreads just remember so smile like a motherfucker and you should be golden!!!!
Is it offensive for a black man to dress up as Superman for Halloween?
At this point I'd be offended if you didn't wear the dreds.
OF course its not racist....dreads arent ONLY for black people and if your black and think that thats racist than YOUR probably a racist yourself....
so the only person who'd be offended is some dude who gets his ideology imparted to him from The Boondocks.
Good, glad we solved this one.
Since we don't seem to have this conversation about mustaches when someone has an awesome mustache, I don't see why we should have to have it about dreads.
Wear your hair, or wig however you want... If anyone gets pissed off tell them to calm down, and stop being overly sensitive. Seriously, I love watermelon, and I'm not being racist or offensive by eating it, unless someone is way too sensitive.
What makes things offensive is the meaning behind them... Is it offensive that I currently have my shoes untied?
Maybe I am being overly sensitive.
Have fun and knock yourself out.
