Quote# 77194

Jacob's son Esau was the father of the Edomites and he is said to be "red" Genesis 25:25.

We might say of a ruddy complexion, as David was, 1 Samuel 16:12.

This is why Blacks in the southern USA are sometimes observed spooning and eating red clay out of river banks. They are trying to get back to the original colour.

Oh so sad and stupid. Sad because of the stupid.

Errr... seriously? I never even heard of that. What the hell hit him on the head so hard to make so much stupid gush out?

There are people in the southern USA who eat dirt:

However, not all of them are black, and I very much doubt that Esau has anything to do with it.

Actually... it's probably some kind of mineral deficiency.

WMDKitty has it right. The medical term is Pica, and it doesn't discriminate based on race, or even species.

Just when you think you've heard the most ridiculous statement ever uttered, they come up with this...

So white people eat titanium dioxide?

I thought he'd have gone for tribes in Africa who cover themselves in ochre. But then I suspect he'd have to know about other countries without thinking of them as targets.

...the fuck?

African americans in the south like to eat dirt. Doesn't sound too hard to verify...

11/1/2010 5:36:59 AM



Observed by who? You?

What the fuck is wrong with these people.

Tonight on MythBusters: Is it possible for a statement to be too fucked up for FSTDT?

Haha, no.

I think you meant to say "African Americans".

11/1/2010 6:27:54 AM

Doubting Thomas

This sounds like some Christian Identity nonsense, which is a religion highly based on race.

And what makes you think that eating red clay will turn you that color?

Oh hell, why do I even bother trying to make sense out of this crap? When you base your beliefs around an ancient bizarre book written by superstitious idiots, you get this kind of crazy nonsense.

aaa

This is the dumbest shit i have read in months. I think you should get yourself a fucking brain ASAP.

This really should be in RSTDT but whatever.

God damn it, America, why must you fulfill every single negative stereotype about you! This post fails geography, science, and the notion of not being a racist prick, and, worst of all, you prove your ignorance by believing the Bible literally! It is times like these when I want to pull a No True Scotsman on these guys, and say that all the fundies who give America a bad name are not worthy of being called Americans.

When I saw "red" I figured s/he was going to take a cheap-o racist shot at Native Americans. But this... this is new... *headdesk*

@Doctor Fishcake

"Tonight on MythBusters: Is it possible for a statement to be too fucked up for FSTDT?"

Thus is why this quote would be more suited to RSTDT. alanorei is certainly a subhuman racist to say what he did.

11/1/2010 7:42:20 AM



What.

GodotIsWaiting4U

Wow. I have NEVER heard of this red clay shit.

Also, it took me a second to realize that those were two parts of the same activity; at first I was like "what the hell's your problem with spooning" but then I realized he actually meant scooping clay up with a spoon and not a super-relaxing sexual position.

Ah yes, the BNP nutter.
