A point, the discussion of changing behavior and our voices, is important. While it is easy enough to say, "my voice is small," well, Nova P proved that very wrong. It took her ten minutes to write a succinct response here showing what exactly was wrong with the video, it took her five minutes to contact Ian to address the situation, and it took Ian, what Ian, ten minutes to get it fixed?

One voice went pretty far. Frankly, I'm embarrassed that I didn't drop a note to Ian. It did occur to me but I figured he knew and was probably doing something. Dumb of me. It's the old assume thing.

Soap Box, sorry. The internet has coarsened our public behavior and is worse than alcohol in lessening our inhibitions. If each of us takes a small action, then as a whole we can make it a better place. Nova did something the rest of us should have. She did so because it was a direct attack on women. That is embarrassing to me since I like to think I stand up for others who aren't white and male, like I am.

I've had some of my written material plagiarized on Amazon.com. The Amazon people were quick and good to address the problem. Glad to see YT is also quick to handle the plagiarism this "parody" was.

As to "fair use" law, the only parody example I am really aware of is Wierd Al Yankovich using people's songs for parodies. Most of the original artists gave their permissions, which was asked sir, but one didn't (Prince), and Wierd Al respected that and didn't use his parody song. So permission CAN be an issue, and potentially harmful "parody" won't cut it with the "fair use" argument.

There wasn't an ounce of "parody" anywhere in that video, it was just a vile roasting without a single redeeming quality.

Why would you limit what you stand up for just because of race or gender? To me that sounds like overcompensating for something deeper within. "like I am" please...

I don't think he's saying that at all. I could be reading extra into it, but I don't feel like I am here - He seems to be referring to the fact that we all, without exception, inherently express bias toward those that are more physically 'like' our selves. He's stating in his post that he's embarrassed that he may have succumbed to that sort of unconscious bias, because generally he works hard to do as you espouse - stand up for everyone regardless of race and gender.
