WTF?

Because it’s Valentine’s Day, and I already feel like excrement, I decided to look at million-dollar condos online. OK, that’s not true. What’s true is that Gawker linked to Curbed with linked to this loathsome million-dollar development. Please take a minute to let the model apartment scroll by, so that you don’t miss the Mysterious African Lady Dining Room Chairs. I swear to God I could not sleep with furniture like that in my apartment. For one thing? Racist. For another thing? Creep-dot-pee, my pals.

  1. How exactly are baby highchairs with nubian faces racist? I would think the rug rats would find them fun to sit in. Are you creeped out by Bernard the Pink Dinosaur and Sponge Bob Smelly Pants too?

  2. just because the character has brown skin, doesn’t make it racist. What are you trying to say? That there’s no way a black person would own that home and want their kid’s toys to represent people of color?

  4. Oh for Chrissakes, no one is saying that a black person couldn’t own that apartment. First of all, NO ONE I know could own that apartment. Second of all, those chairs have the same creepiness of the black-face cookie jars and salt-and-pepper shakers I’ve seen in gas stations in the south, even if they aren’t of the same style. Third of all, those chairs are offensive to everyone, not because of their color or possible connotations, but because they are butt-ugly.

  5. Oh boy. Listen, people. I don’t know when the anonymous portion of the readership got so sensitive, but it’s called “a joke” because it isn’t “serious.”

  7. In the attempt to interject a bit of perspective into this discussion, the phrase was “wouldn’t” … not “couldn’t”.

  8. Wow how self indulgent your crap is. I guess you have not ever considered that the world doesnt revolve around your vagina. Even sadder the other useless morons that actually pass some comment on your trite words.

  9. Is a clitoris with it’s own field of gravity difficult to find? Obviously the boys are drawn to it, like satellites, constantly circling, sending e-mails of their wangatude…

  10. Uh, they seem kinda racist to me, too. I’d like one of these anonymous people to explain to me how they’re different from Mammy salt n pepa shakers.

  11. And I seldom call things like this racist, because I think it’s a term that should be used more judiciously. But dude, at the very least they’re bizarrely exoticizing, in the context of that bourgie apartment.
