Steve Martin Did A Bad Thing - Needed An Edumacation

Poor Steve Martin - the internet is becoming, like, The Hills Have Eyes or some shit for racism:

Then came dismay at the unwarranted betrayal - did Steve Martin ever have a Ghetto Pass? He plays the banjo, so I don't know. The banjo can make racism sound happy, like Martin famously said it could, for Nixon.

Big laugh.


O.K., Stevie, you're white, you're rich - you've used race, blacks and Indians (almost exclusively) for comedy before - what do you say? It's the Buddha calling, baby - Big Time. You know the New Age rules - you and Tina Fey made a movie about them:

Sorry about that. RT @illmami: I'm not totally offended but I don't want to be the one saying it. It was witty. But nawl. Not today.


Not. Humble. Enough. Steve. 

Too "sophisticated" for any American but the cocksucking French art lovers you're known to hang with now - try again:

I did apologize. But again, a second later I realized what an offensive thing I'd done. Deep bow.

Better - 12 Years of Cool - but know something: 

 You've been walking a very-thin cultural line, for a long time now, Mr. Mark Twain Award winner and - like blogging professors - we expect better of you. 

And we're very disappointed when you fail us. Believe it or not - we're counting on you. 

And it's important that we do.

Yeah, I learned that.

Good - so go hold up your end and keep helping with the others who can't:

And stay afloat, Holmes - we love you,...
