I was just watching some clips from old tv shows I use to watch... When I saw this one, I immediately thought "OMG that's such a racist stereotype". Obviously it was meant to be funny, and it's an iconic phrase of the 90's, but imagine what people these days would say to that line.
I don't think that was racist at all. I didn't think orange soda was a black stereotype. I thought it was just grape drink, fried chicken and watermelon.
It's an obvious reference to grape soda.
And states rights is an obvious reference to segregation.
BS.... States Rights is an obvious reference to the 10th amendment. If what you say was true,Nazi Germany wouldn't believe in segregation because they abolished the Constituent States to create a Unitary State.
And Wnope was making an obvious reference to seriousness and not sarcasm.
Doesn't change the fact that it's pure BS.
Transfer is another of the seven main propaganda terms first used by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis in 1938. Transfer is often used in politics and during wartime. It is an attempt to make the subject view a certain item in the same way as they view another item, to link the two in the subjects mind. Although this technique is often used to transfer negative feelings for one object to another, it can also be used in positive ways. By linking an item to something the subject respects or enjoys, positive feelings can be generated for it. However, in politics, transfer is most often used to transfer blame or bad feelings from one politician to another of his friends or party members, or even to the party itself. When confronted with propaganda using the transfer technique, we should question the merits or problems of the proposal or idea independently of convictions about other objects or proposals."http://library.thinkquest.org...
