'Ba Ba Black Sheep' Called Racist
Fox News ^ | Feb 28 2011

Posted on 02/28/2011 6:51:22 AM PST by Lazamataz

Black sheep are on the endangered species list as some children in north Queensland learn to sing Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep.

The English nursery rhyme may have survived for 200-plus years but political correctness could finally put it out to pasture.

Some schools in Britain have banned the song for being racist, but Pelicans Innisfail Child Care allows children to sing about black sheep or rainbow sheep.

Who knew then that one of England’s finest, Tolkien was a vile racist? By the Ba ba Logic the Lord of the Rings is going to have to be completely re-written.

Rainbow Riders

The terrible Rainbow Hand of Sauron

Mordor - the Rainbow Land

Although, I must say this creates a bit of a conflict and will do a lot of harm to the overall plot.

Four and twenty blackbirds are planning to protest this development. According to their latest press statement, “It’s not over ‘til we sing and the King hears about it.”

I am offended by all mention of any colors whatsoever, because black people were called 'colored' once.

No colors may be mentioned in any venue, anywhere.

So, in Physics class will it now be

1. “Rainbow Body Radiation”, or
2. “African-American Body Radiation?”

I vote for #2.

Anecdote: When I was in school (and the concept was half its present age!) I heard from a dorm-mate that one professor called it “Heisenberg’s South Side Maiden Radiation.”

Do you consider white to be the absence of all color, or black to be the absence of all colors?

I need to know which I can use...

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Black? Black? Racist!

Have you any wool?
Are you saying that my hair is "nappy"? Racist!

Yes sir, yes sir,
Sir? Well that's racist right there implying that the black sheep should call everyone else "Sir".

Three bags full.
Well, that's just racist for no specific reason. But it's still racist.

One for the master,
Ooooooo! Master? What a give away. Racism pure and simple!

One for the dame,
Dame? Well that's just a sexist term. And racist too!

And one for the little boy
Boy? Who are you calling boy? More racism.

Who lives down the lane.
Down? So the little "boy" lives down the lane? Why can't he live up the lane? Racism. A whole song with racism on every single line.

You cannot mention either, or the word 'color', because it is horribly insensitive to the plight of the African American.

The fact that you have mentioned anything, ever, makes you a racist who needs to give everything to the government, then kill your entire bloodline and family, and your small headstones should apologize profusely for daring to exist.

Posted to another, but repeated for a Racist Bastard like yourself: "Racists who mention the word 'black' or 'colored', or indeed, ANY specific color, need to give everything they own to the government, then kill their entire bloodline and family, and their small headstones should apologize profusely for daring to exist.

The color black and the word “black” are to be outlawed in the US by Executive Order.

Black birds, black sheep, black cod, black ants and such will all be rounded up and sent to FEMA camps for reeducation. Those who resist will be terminated and fed to the First Lady, who is no longer Black.

Black History Month, and all written and filmed references to the word “black” will be redacted, or the material burned. All Internet references to “black” will be handled by the Obama scrubbing teams.

The Black Panthers? That will require some finesse.

I have a feeling that “Black Holes” will be next.

It already has been deemed racist, since 1990.

Soon merely thinking will be considered racist, unless one is a member of the ivory tower elite.

Yes. The only thing left to decide is whether to call them the "African American Sheep Squadron" or "Sheep of Color Squadron."

“This is actually in Australia, not the UK.”

I was wondering how long it was going to take for someone to notice that.

This sort of thing is totally ridiculous pandering to the perpetually offended, or possibly just to over-sensitive liberal weenies who are afraid that someone, somewhere, might, possibly be offended.
