In honor of our site redesign, we present a new, semi-regular feature on dumbassery we’re calling “DISGWITTER of the Weak.” Disgwitter, as in the stupid Tweets people who should know better end up posting anyway. Our first
victim perpetrator? UCLA freshman football player, Randall Carroll.
Over the weekend, wide receiver Carroll got busted for bitching on Twitter about his offensive coordinator, Coach Norm Chow, to a top high school recruit. It was reported by the LA Times that Carroll, who was heavily recruited himself, used a “racial epithet” to describe Chow. The Times reposted this edited version of Carroll’s Tweet (after his account was quickly deleted):
“man oregon, stanford and cal should have been easy wins ,, but [expletive] thys [racial slur] norm chow dnt be trustin us ,, so it is what it is.”
We kinda naturally assumed that the slur Carroll, who is black, directed at Chow, who is of Chinese descent, was “chink.”
Well, not exactly.

Just 50 years after the launch of Barbie, 42 years after the introduction of Colored Francie, 41 years after the birth of Christie, and 6 months after a
trampy-ass tattooed Barbie, Mattel has finally launched a Black Barbie that isn’t just their skinny white doll with darker skin, or part of a collectibles set.
Oh, Bravo. BRAVO. How expedient. How relevant.
Can’t wait to see the”Yellow Annie” series in thirty years. Should be real cause for celebrasian.
Dude. As we all know, The Cosby Show was way ahead of its time. But who knew that, in addition to being groundbreaking reprzentation for African-Americans, it had a Desi flava, too? Check out this show intro mashup:
Here’s Presidential candidate Mitt Romney meeting African-American voters on MLK Day and confirmation that he’s never met a black person before in his life:
The upshot? Romney seems terribly concerned about his new friends standing out in the freezing cold to meet him. Guess no one had the heart to tell him that outerwear, too, has gone the way of “bling-bling” and chanting “Who Let the Dogs Out?”
