Paulie Isn't Even Trying Anymore; Racist Comment on Racist Photo Montage

Nothing Paulie does ever really surprises us all that much, but that doesn't mean that we won't continue to comment every time he lets that veil of "racialist" respectability, already thread-bare and moth eaten, slip. His latest?

So Paulie believes that a comparison between an ordinary, elderly woman who seems to have lead a life of some hardship and a pampered 23 year old international supermodel who has a team of make-up artists, photographers, and photoshop experts indicates the inequality of the, "races."

NOTE 1: We originally thought the model on the left was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. We've since corrected our error.

Oh, Paulie...

Aside from commenting on the superficiality of it all, we decided that we had two choices in dealing with this.

We could take the high road and discuss the cross-cultural concept of attractiveness from an ethnic perspective and the historic views of what beauty has meant over time.

Or we could take the low road and make fun of boneheads.

What to do..... what to do.....

We also decided to include some of our own:

But this one has to be our absolute favourite:

Puerile? Sure.

But sometimes it is the only appropriate response.

NOTE 2: Based on a comment that he left here, even Tomasz Winnicki agrees that Paulie is ugly.

And fyi Tommy, the wheel was invented in Mesopotamia by a Semitic people. Try harder.

Puerile it may be, but it is also a strategy very successfully used in the past by prominent blacks in order to assert their equality with whites. In his "De l'Égalité des Races Humaines" (1885), the Haitian anthropologist Antenor Firmin did the exact same thing, describing "the physical beauty" of black Haitians to give "the lie to the fanciful descriptions of ethnographers" who held the supposedly-scientific viewpoint that whites were inherently more beautiful than blacks. So when the boneheads give you something like this, have some fun with it!
