It never ceases to amaze me of the extent to which readers get emotionally worked up about the videos I post on this site. Here are three videos that I’ve posted in the past. All of them led to heated discussion in the comments section here as well as on other sites.
I understand that some of you find the content of these videos to be offensive. My own response covers a great deal of ground both in terms of their entertainment quality as well as what they tell us about how Americans remember their past. One of the reasons why I post them, however, is because they fit neatly into the overall theme of this site. They raise a number of questions in my mind about the intersection of history and comedy. Over the past five years I’ve posted all kinds of videos and documentaries on this site. It is your choice to be offended or to assume from any one video some deep dark fact about my personality. If you have problems with these videos or if you feel a need to vent your emotions than I suggest that you take up your concerns with their creators. But please don’t operate under the illusion that I somehow necessarily care about how each of you feels about what you see.
