Try research methods in racism.
I bet this professor--the mutha fucka he is--was wearing UGGS.

why is everyone assuming this prof is male? it could easily have been said by a woman... shocking in either case, though.

It may be racist, but it sure is hilarious. Say what you may, but you all were laughing right before you made those comments (and plausibly, are still laughing)...

Phillipe Rushton is a well-known racist scientist here at Western. He's been banned from several international academic meetings because of his crazy antics, shoddy science, and blatantly racist agenda. Not surprisingly he's an evolutionary psychologist.

he didn't say the joke though ;)

7:16: YOU ARE A RACIST ASSHOLE WHO GOES TO GUELPH AND WEARS UGG BOOTS.

ANYONE WHO LISTENS TO THEIR IPODS WHILST STEPPING IN COW DUNG IS A COMMUNIST/RACIST/FARMER/HICK/MOMMA'S BOY/CRANBERRY EATING/CONSERVATIVE-VOTING/STEET-MEAT-SNIFF'N/ANTI-GYRO (on a pita, please)/UBER-MENSCH/EASTERN-CANADIAN GRAVER-DIGGER (and not the heavy-metal band)...

In the spirit of Western students, all hail completely desultory, willy-nilly humour! Hell, I eat hobos once a week--along with the classifieds *und* (German for and) ding dongs--isn't this funny?

*Tomas Haake -- you got some rage issues? A conservative voting communist, eh? Don't see a contradiction there? And whats with all the comments about Guelph? Inter-university hatred is stupid.

In other words, mellow-out!

I was a bit confused about how a communist could vote Conservative, myself.

I doubt that this prof was being a racist. It sounds as though he/she has a speech problem and can't pernounce his R's. You people read into this to deeply. Get a grip.

3:35...you are amazing. You have failed to see that Mr. Haake's comments are to be taken as pure sarcasm!

I think he was trying to demonstrate the foolish nature of the seemingly random comments left by students on this blog.

I think you're the one who needs to take a pill and calm down just a little bit. If you're into reading into things that much, do us a favour and pick up a book by Freud.

at the risk of being yelled at: can someone explain how this is racist?

11:42 - I go to Ryerson, and wear Reeboks all year long. Also, the reason you seem so aggravated is plausibly because you were laughing too. And got pissed off at the fact of the matter.

Much lovin'

9:14pm - you have to be somewhat asian to appreciate the way this joke works...
Asians, particularly Chinese, have a notorious habit of not pronouncing or mispronouncing "r" or "l"

so what should have been "two wrongs don't make a right", now sounds like "two wongs don't make a white".

really it's not that funny after the initial laugh.

ok... this was in an MIT class... Abercrombie had a shirt that was for Wong's dry cleaning... the slogan was "Two Wongs make a White" and the class was talking about racial depictions in advertising. so no, the professor is not racist.
