People are just so offended these days by everything and FFS don't watch it if you know it is going to hurt your precious feelings. The Internet voice allowing all and sundry to have a say from their keyboards is going to be ruining society and making a mockery of social platforms because 99% of the time people log on to voice an opinion that is always negative and a whinge.
The "offended" aren't the ones making the decision to pull the shows, however. These shows got pulled because there isn't a big audience for them anymore, and also because they don't want to risk losing the "offended", who could do exactly as you say and switch off, and then cancel their subscriptions en masse. Make no mistake, this is a business decision. So really, your complaint should be with capitalism.

There was also talk today on the radio the children's show Paw Patrol about Police Dogs is also being discussed as being banned and WTF??
I'd bet good money that this isn't happening, it's nonsense made up by a radio host to keep his audience invested in the culture war and tuning in daily.

The vast majority of black people won't give a fu** because they won't even know the characters or show.
Talked to them, have you?

False equivalence. White Chicks is two black characters, played by black actors, pretending to be white to solve crime. Chris Lilley is a white actor playing non-white characters.
Dave Chappelle plays white characters. They are always representations of corny as fu** white people.

The humour and laughs that are created is because it's Dave the black guy playing them.

So black people playing white people is okay in that scenario?

If Chris Lilley played a white person pretending to be Tongan would be okay and noone would be fussing ?

Playing black people pretending to be white.

So youre okay with white people playing white people pretending to be black?

You cleverly dodged the question.
In the abstract that could be funny. It certainly alters the humour, making it about the idiot character.

Eric Cartman (Trey Parker) in South Park dresses up but the joke is really Eric Cartman being misguided or an asshole.

Mostly I'm sick of people going BuT WhiTe cHiCKs!! as a shitty, insincere defence every time someone fu**s up in real life.

Usually appropriately in response to someone complaining about blackface.

BTW is Magda racist for her blackface ?

Doesn't take much to bring the Chicken Littles out; nobody is 'cancelling' your favourite shitty show, you can still buy the DVDs.

This is private businesses doing a stocktake of whether they have unwittingly or not been showing racist claptrap. In the case of Chris Lilley and Little Britain, yeah, they have (I knew Little Britain was lowest common denominator racist garbage when it first came out). Gone with the Wind won't be banished, the Fawlty Towers episode will come back, because good quality stuff can withstand historical context. Paw Patrol won't lose Chase because you've all been sucked in by the simplest of clickbait. Calm the fu** down.

Let's be honest, most of this be being drivel by soft cock liberal white people.

The vast majority of black people won't give a fu** because they won't even know the characters or show.

These kind of things never have the result the white Liberals hope they will.
they aren't only being removed so as not to offend black people.
it's the showcasing/reinforcing/endorsing of outdated behaviour and ideals to all people that is the problem.

not saying i agree with it one way or the other, just felt it needed to be mentioned.
