    LETTERMAN's top ten reasons there are no BLACK NASCAR drivers

    # 10 - Have to sit upright while driving.

    # 9 - Pistol won't stay under front seat.

    # 8 - Engine noise drowns out the rap music.

    # 7 - Pit crew can't work on car while holding up pants at the same time.

    # 6 - They keep trying to carjack Dale Earnhardt Jr.

    # 5 - Police cars on track interfere with race.

    # 4 - No passenger seat for the Ho.

    # 3 - No Cadillacs approved for competition.

    # 2 - When they crash their cars, they bail out & run.


    AND THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY BLACKS CAN'T BE IN NASCAR...




    # 1 - They Can't wear their helmets sideways.

    From Snopes . com (unban Legends site)

    Claim: David Letterman offered a "Top Ten" list about why there are no black NASCAR drivers.

    Status: False.

    Origins: Jokes are often used to pass along negative stereotypes about members of other groups because the veil of humor is seen to bestow a form of plausible deniability about the nature of the messages being imparted. (When called upon about offensive statements contained therein, the joke's teller believes he has the safe retreat of "But I was just telling you this funny story I heard; it's not like I think that
    way" or "Don't shoot me if you find this racist; it's David's list, not mine.")

    The catalog of behaviors quoted above is an example of racism dressed up to look like a humor offering. Couched in the form of a David Letterman "Top Ten" list, it expounds upon any number of denigrating clichés presenting blacks as car-stealing, gun-toting criminals who dress in saggy gansta-style pants, wear their caps sideways, and drive about in flashy cars blaring loud rap music with their "hos" by their sides.

    This list has been circulating on the Internet since at least early 2005 (sometimes under the alternate titles of "The Top 10 reasons why there are no ****** NASCAR drivers" and "Top Ten Reasons Why There Are No Rap Stars in NASCAR"), and although we don't know the identity of its creator, it isn't something that originated on the Late Show with David Letterman (as a search of that show's Top 10 archive will confirm). The compilation started out as an uncredited "Top 10 Reasons" list, but as it made the rounds of the Internet, someone inevitably tacked David Letterman's name onto it.

    ..................

    I'm sure no one here would believe this garbage came from Letterman, but I thought I'd quote the above anyway,

    You're damn right it was funny. Shoulda had a reference for no Hi-C cup holder in Nascars, no storage space for watermelons and Nascars too big to fit through the KFC drive through window.

    You never said that when people here made fun of asians, whites, hispanics, or arabs. Happens pretty daily around here.

    i knew this wasn't letterman. this is not him. i was just about to say how this is possible to allow this on tv. if this were real, letterman would be threatened by all blacks and have the black community protest. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would have him fired. i thought it was real until someone said it was fake. i had a feeling. no way they would allow this type of humor on tv, especailly in today's society.. but it was a great list.. i wonder who really wrote this list.

    Stealing hubcaps doesn't make you a gangster. You'd be even more gangster if you'd never get caught. You'd get wrecked son. Learn when the odds are not in your favor and don't play.

    Shut the fukk up with this bullshit. Neither one of us are flying to meet anybody. We will never see each other. Your just a clown. Nobody even pays you any mind. You made a basketball thread, went like 10 and 0. And still nobody gives a shit. You were just talking to yourself in your own thread(don't make me pull it up). Its because your a circus clown. You think people like your watermelon and chicken jokes. You just make yourself look stupid and more stupid with each passing day.
