Skeletor Clint Eastwood: “Why Can’t We Make Racist Jokes Like The Good ‘Ole Days?”

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Clint Eastwood is upset with the new breed of Hollywood looking past racial issues and not making fun of peoples differences:

Hollywood legend CLINT EASTWOOD laments the loss of old-fashioned humour in today’s society – insisting he should be able to tell jokes about nationality without fear of people branding him a “racist”. The Dirty Harry star, 79, is adamant that modern culture has become humourless, and accuses younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being offensive.  He says, “People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist.” “I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a ‘Sam the Jew’ or ‘Jose the Mexican’ – but we didn’t think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don’t want to be politically correct. We’re all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything.”

This old fart must be taking care of his bucket list.

    Most bigots dont think they are racist. By the way Clint, have you ever had any Black people, not spanish or jewish, in your movies? Thank you for giving me another reason not to support you. You are a legend but soon you will be in the grave old man.

    The grave is calling for his ass any day.

    I think Clint is a brillant actor/director. But damn, he sounds like such an idiot.

    He’s getting ready to take a long nap anyway. But I did like his films…

    Eye, Clint Eastwood’s wife, Dina Ruiz is half, Black & half Japanese. Her father was adopted by a Mexican family. Also one of Clint’s best friends was the late great Ray Charles. People need to chill out more about this racist shit.

  • Curtis

    Yeah, alright, I know some of yall gonna come back at me with this, “some of my best friends are…” You know what I’m talking about. My grandfather is 85 and he still makes stupid, off-color jokes, so what? There is more things to get upset about than a 79 year old man talking like this.

  • http://www.gravatar.com Re is excited to see Gambit (X-Men)!

    He enjoys making crude jokes. People are definitely speaking in politically correct language cause its scary. Who wants Al Sharpton knocking at your door?

    Oh, my mother in-law told me Al Sharpton was so disrespectful to her when he came to the hotel she works in (Ritz Carlton). Black power my ass…

    That sh*t wasn’t funny!

  • Doc

    some people use racist joke to show their racist mentality.

  • Whut??

    Yet another reason why McCain couldn’t be our President. White males around Clint’s age are still having flashbacks about the good ole’ days of Jim Crow.

  • josh

    At the end of the day, theres no difference between making a joke about someones skin colour than there is making a joke about someones weight or the way they dress. You cant say this dude needs to die if you’ve ever laughed at a joke about a fat person, because you’re just as bad. The person on the receiving end gets just as offended.

  • About it

    You’re old Clint — and no one wants to see an old man who never had any talent which is why all your films were about violence. You were just playin’ yourself. When you’re young, you can get away with that, but you can’t come with the goods cuz you never had ’em.

  • Move Onmelvin_franks@hotmail.com

    I read how he and his good buddy Morgan Freeman (whom he puts in his films) are always joking around like twelve year old boys and calling names and shit. Folks getting put out by this just need to roll their eyes and get on with life.

  • renebug

    so clint, what was the white people’s joke?

  • apple dutchmaster

    Some of y’all may not like my comment but, I honestly do not think this man is racist. He has his opinions and views like everyone else. Plus if you ever look at any of his films, he showed people as they are. In his westerns, you can tell he has a high repsect for the American Indians. He made films with every walk of life. And I can’t speak for everyone, but I lable people too (i.e. Mary the crazy chick, or lil’-dick Ted).

  • Crazy Ass Rodney

    Fcuk this white piece of schiitt!!!!

  • Kigali (Birth control until marriage)

    Paging al Sharpton…Paging al Sharpton…

  • thegreatone

    hold on aint Clint Eastwood wife is Dina Ruiz. Her father was of African-American and Japanese descent, and her mother of Irish, English and German descent. so if he wants to make racist jokes start with your wife first and see if she find it funny. also they have a mixed race daughter too would he be happy if someone say racist jokes to her.

  • songbird

    UMMM….I guess becuase the Good Ol’ was not sooo good for black folks!!!!…

  • Progressive Black Movement for the better future

    no one is saying you can’t say those things it just simply stupid to because it is offensive. and stop with that “oh his wife is …….” were all related in some way so, knock it off. point is its offensive, and it’s on you to suffer the consequences of you actions.
