Yes, I am a cripple. And you, madam, are black


some one said this was actually said by someone in the first season what episode was that? lol

Watching it now. What the hell? Lol

I think it was just his way of saying don't walk on egg shells around me because I'm handicapped and I won't walk on egg shells around you because you're black. But I haven't watched the episode in a while so I don't remember the exact context of that exchange.

Basically he knocked into her or the other way around and he was mad at himself and she saw his arm and started to apologize and that's when he dropped the line. It was so messed up but i couldn't help but laugh. Reminded me of Dwight from Scary Movie 2. I can do it myself!

Like I said, I can understand what they were going for, the bitter, uncensored type of person who says all sorts of offensive stuff without blinking an eye, similar to House. But even in those cases it has to be handled very delicately so as not to make the show itself and its writers look like racists themselves.

I think he said that to point the obvious and that there was no need to make more out of it. They did a somewhat similar thing on 3rd Rock From the Sun.

So who won the argument?

reply

Neither, because a retarded Jew helped them see each other's side of the argument.

I thought it was a gay muslim.

This is a kind of insult that has been around since forever. One of the most famous was by Winston Churchill, who dearly loved his gin (his recipe for a martini was to pour gin into a pitcher while looking at the bottle of vermouth on a table on the other side of the room). Apparently one night at a party he got rather sloppy, and he ended up annoying some woman. The woman said, "Sir, you're drunk!" To which he replied with something like, "Yes, I am drunk, and you are ugly. However, in the morning I will be sober, whereas you...".

An insult is an insult, but given how political correctness has consumed our culture, some are more insulting than others. It's a safe bet such a remark like that will never be uttered on the new Macgyver. People today just cannot take things on an even keel because they've been programmed think certain ways, and only certain ways. Thinking intelligently is no longer allowed.

I can't help but point out that the woman in question is played by Tracy Reed a woman I've had a thing for ever since she used to appear in McCloud. She's ten years older in MacGyver, and like a fine wine, she only got better. She's yet another actress who didn't have the career she should have had.
