    Lena Dunham, creator of HBO's "Girls," might have made a creepy ad on behalf of the first black president, but she's being accused of racism, the Daily Beast reports:


    It all began with shock-jock extraordinaire Howard Stern's incendiary description of . . . Dunham as a "little fat girl." Unfortunately for Stern, the "little fat girl" had things to say. In a perfectly harmless apology session that went terribly wrong, Dunham's clever quip brought a city to the brink: "I'm not super thin, but I'm thin for, like, Detroit!" . . .
    An East Coast-native with close ties to Michigan, [Yesha] Callahan was shocked to hear Dunham's remark, calling it not only offensive but racist. "Detroit isn't known for its population of white people," Callahan says. The BET writer says Dunham's comment rings of racism in the way it insinuates Detroit--an urban area with a high population of African-Americans--is a "fat city." "She doesn't want to be judged for her size, so she shouldn't judge an entire city on theirs." Whether Dunham meant it that way doesn't matter, says Callahan, if for no other reason than the fact that "most people in the city of Detroit don't know who she is."

    You beat me to it. Also, if you use the term "Chicago politics" or "Chicago thug", that is racist as well.

    What a society. People are in a competition not to achieve but to obtain greater victim status than others.

    "I'm the most hated and despised!" "NO, I am!"

    Genetics, diet affordability etc. But, I'm sure that's been taken into account. :coffee:

    can we see a photo of [Yesha] Callahan? we need to determine if Lena Dunham's comment was racial or merely in poor taste. does anyone have the census data? what is the average body weight of young women in Detroit?

    This discussion overlooks the truth underlying statement. Yes, she is fat in any city she might waddle to.

    The interview was funny in that she pretends she embraces and is comfortable with her weight while trying to comfort herself and have Howard comfort her into believing she is not actually fat. She is not morbidly obese, I will give her that
