Acting legend Clint Eastwood , 79, apparently believes that political correctness, the favor of the public, has rendered modern society humorless, for he accuses younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being offensive.
The Dirty Harry star insists that he should be able to tell harmless jokes about nationality without fearing that people may brand him "a racist".
"People have lost their sense of humor. 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," the Daily Express quoted Eastwood as saying.
[There are those who rather be called a racist or not, I included. Nevertheless, I think, while we are getting it all out, Scandinavians already went through an ice age or two, survived, and now lose track of the responsibilities in their lives at least once, just to have a struggle, which compares. Everybody else has had to work for a living, O fucking cry me a river.]
“Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you got to get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean! Cause if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is.”
