I've been told this is funny because it is photoshopped. I still don't find it humorous. Do you?

Taken from "Post a pic, any pic" thread. I was told to take it here, so I obliged.

I see it as making humor out of racism and domestic violence.

Am I alone or am I wrong?

I understand what you are saying but it's a goofy picture in my opinion that someone photoshopped the black eye on to.  I don't think anyone would have commented that the picture was funny if she had an actual black eye.  As far as the racist angle someone else can field that one.

the humor is the implication that she cheated.......  I dont think racism  has any part in this...  domestic violence is an issue that garners some attention though

the black eye and the child's race are photoshopped... at least I think they are...

 

I wonder how this family feels to know what has been done to their picture, too.

If it was a real picture, no I would not find it funny.

 

Since it's an internet meme.  It is humorous.

 

As to how the family feels?  They're not e-famous, they should be happy.

But, don't you think the fact that people can laugh at the idea, even though it isn't real, is at least a subconscious problem?

Meh... not really.

 

It's funny more because of the setting of the picture than the fact that it's "humorizing domestic violence".

This is just my opinion, but it first fails in the category of humor. It just isn't funny.

I like good comedy that may sometimes cross the line of politically correct, after all i love the roasts on Comedy Central, but the first thing those guys realize that if you are going to go there you better be funny, otherwise you are just a racist asshole.

I don't think the picture is funny, therefore to me it is just relying on racism to create humor, which I'm itself is racially insensitive.

Also, this isn't parody. I also like humor that may use racism as a parody to the absurdity and hypocrisy of racism itself. South Park has effectively done this at times. This picture doesn't accomplish that either.

So to me, this picture is simply saying, "Hey, this guy's wife cheated on him with a black guy so he punched her in the face. Funny right? Right? "

Well, no. Not really.

(Possible) cheating is not funny.

 

Racism is not funny.

 

Domestic violence is not funny.

 

It's a failure on so many levels.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
