My harboring hatred Justin comes from very non-hipster origins. The fact that you still feel like joking around about "sending people to reservations" and have now just decided to patronize us all with replacing racial slurs with quotations? I mean you're still supporting the same sentiment!!!!!! In many ways this is worse and a double slap in the face to American youth if you can't recognize it. I hope you are just ignorant and ready to learn opposed to just a guy who thinks crimes perpetrated to human beings based on being different are funny.

Maybe, but am I still the only one bothered by the fact that his apology included "slinging racial slurs"? Not the time to try an sound hip my man. "uh..yeah, so I'm like, really sorry for, uh, getting racist all up in therrre"

Yes. I think when it comes from a place that has a public body of work and clear agenda it can be passed as satire and social commentary (some cases are a little more iffy than others). To me it is a more comprehensive type of humor that unfortunately gets misunderstood. People that take away "one liners" from those shows/sketches and think they are appropriate for any type of situation need their head checked.
