  21. A spic walks into a bar and says, “Hey, nigger, give me a drink.” The nigger bartender says, “I’ll give you a drink, but I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t refer to me as a “nigger.” “Oh man!, I am sure sorry about that bro’. Won’t happen again.” A few minutes later the spic says, “Hey moon crickett, another round.” The nigger says,”Hey, look, I really don’t want you calling me “moon crickett” either.” The spic says,”Sorry bootlips, I didn’t mean anything by it.” The bartender says, “OK that’s it! How would you like it if you were the bartender and I came in here calling you names?” “I don’t know, let’s find out.” So the spic puts on an apron and goes behind the bar and the nigger walks outside and comes back in and shouts, “Hey wetback! I want a fucking drink!” The “bartender” stops washing glasses and says, “Oh, I’m sorry, we don’t serve niggers in here.

  22. In a first grade class on the first day of school, the teacher wanted to get to know all the students, so she had them all stand up and say their names. A little niglet stood up and said that his name was “Mother Fucker.” “Excuse me?” asked the incredulous teacher. “That’s right ho, my name be Mother Fucker.” “Well listen here,” said the teacher, “this may be the first day of school, and you may think you can use foul language to get attention, but I can assure you that I won’t tolerate it. Now, tell me your real name right now or I will send you straight to the principal’s office.” The black boy replied, “Look bitch, I said my name be Mother Fucker, and I mean ta tell ya, it be Mother Fucker!” “Well, that’s it! Get out of my classroom right now!” The boy headed for the door and when he got there he turned to his twin brother who was also in the classroom and said, “Come on, Fuck Face, the bitch ain’t gonna believe you either.

After a full examination, the doctor says, “Get out of my office you asshole, all you have is a broken finger!”

  24. The Pope, a boyscout, and the smartest nigger in the world are on an airplane. The engines fail, the plane starts going down, and there is only 2 parachutes. The smartest nigger in the world says, “Due to my extraordinarily high intelligence, I believe it is imperative that I survive and continue to show my people the path to greatness.” He grabs a parachute and jumps out of the plane. The Pope tells the boyscout, “I am an old man and I am ready to meet God, so you may use the remaining parachute, my son.” The boyscout replies, “No, that’s cool Pope, we both have parachutes because that nigger just jumped out of the plane with my backpack.”

  25. 2 priests are arguing over whether God is black or White. Finally the one says he will just go ask God himself. When he comes back he says with a shrug, “I don’t know, he just said ‘I am what I am’” The other priest says, Well, that proves it! God is white!” “How can you be so sure?” “Well, because, if God was a nigger he would have said, “I is what I is.

    By swappers on May 28, 2020

  30. Thank you Big O Amigos for the fine music. As much as I dispise what DD was printing, I still need to quote the late, great, Dale Spenser: “The only remedy for bad speech is more speech.” Be well, James.

    By James Smith on May 29, 2020

  31. DD , very funny shit . Don’t know if I’d have the smarts to think of that .

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  32. DD / Anti , ya want to hear something ironic? The Minneapolis police chief is a coon hisself. His cops kill a coon and they have a coon chief.

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  33. Get them cops a great defense lawyer like Jerry Spence , Jeffery Fyger , or Jose Baez that dude who got Casey Anthony off

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  36. Do it, fag! I’ll eat his ass while you fuck him. If I’m lucky he farts in my face!

    By THE ASSEATING ANTICHRISTE on May 29, 2020

  37. DUH! I meant I’ll lick his asshole after you come in it. Drink some pineapple juice first, it’ll taste sweet.

    By THE ASSEATING ANTICHRISTE on May 29, 2020

  38. Derrick- sweet jizz mixes well with the shitty ass taste, peanuts give it some crunch, and corn kernels go well with the protein.

    By THE ASSEATING ANTICHRISTE on May 29, 2020

  39. Anti- I’m going to poop and beat off into a bowl and mix it up, that sounds like a tasty treat! A little urine wouldn’t hurt either.

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  40. Derrick- I’m blowing Johnnie, you’ll have to wait a while for your turn. I intend to suck his balls dry.

    By David Duke on May 29, 2020

  41. derrick, Antichrist, David Duke , the prosecutors said they still don’t have enough evidence to charge those cops . I guess a knee the neck for ten minutes isn’t enough. Did you see that video? The apes neck was as flat as a pancake on the ground . Don’t you just love how all those apes are behaving? Just wait and see what happens if the cops aren’t charged .

    By HHH on May 29, 2020

  42. I saw the entire raw video HHH. When the paramedics came to place Floyd on the stretcher, he was already dead. You could tell his body was limp and he had stopped breathing and talking. Forget about it if the cops are not charged. The coons already burned down the 3rd precinct. They are all upset now because the rumor is theres not evidence to support a murder conviction. WTF you kidding me

    By David Duke on May 29, 2020

  43. Did you see the mayor from Minny. no balls at all unlike like Rudy G. Every position in that city is run by a porch monkey. They even have transgenders. This is only the beginnning. We have another Rodney King brewing. Its just in their DNA to burn and loot.

    By David Duke on May 29, 2020

  44. HHH Derrick, they just arrested a CNN coon reporter and they let the white news reporter just to move back so they wont be in the away. Like I said b4, its going to get real ugly real fast

    By David Duke on May 29, 2020

  45. Who is Johnnie Cochrane

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  46. DD, Anti Drrick check this out what trump just said.
    1:15 a.m.: Trump says military could assume control in city, ‘when the looting starts, the shooting starts’
    President Donald Trump has weighed in on the destructive protests in Minneapolis early Friday morning, saying the military could “assume control” of the response.

    “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” Trump tweeted early Friday morning. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

    By HHH on May 29, 2020

  47. This shithead Chump just doesnt get it. Calling the sambos THUGS. looting starts shooting starts. get the popcorn out tonite

    By David Duke on May 29, 2020

  48. Im watching this playout also. I feels like looting the slum I live in and throwing some bottles and rocks at cops and derrick

    By Mark on May 29, 2020

  49. To quote the irrefutable swappers the butthead of big O; If your white, your alright. if your brown, stick around. if your black go back

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  50. Dumb as you undoubtedly are D’rick do at least try to make sense. Perhaps someone could take your wax crayons away until you have composed your thoughts into one coherent statement? Just a thought . . . .

    Dumb as soup the poor red neck mouth breathing knuckle dragging racist twat!

    By swappers on May 29, 2020

  51. DD , gimme a little help here with this asshole

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  52. You better stop picking on me you limey jew bastard

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  53. Awww do you need some help from your little circle jerk of redneck dumbass pals? What’s a matter numbnuts did the nasty Englishman tease you and make you cry? Poor D’rick wants ‘Daisy’ to weigh in . . . . . see who else is still in the playground or maybe your carer can help string the big words together in more than a soundbite as per usual (attention span of a dead goldfish poor dear)

    :)

    By swappers on May 29, 2020

  54. Anti / DD, Trump is gonna order the cops and Military to start shootin some coon ass soon .

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  55. Shit man the men in the white sheets used to pancake coons necks all the time back in the day . That coon shoulda shown some respect and said yessa Mr Officer sir . He probably started running his games coon mouth

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  56. I heard that lotsa cops involved with this macho police shit is Iraq war veterans. They seen their buddies blown up . They ain’t about to put up with this loudmouth coon bullshit

    By Derrick on May 29, 2020

  57. derrick, what’s the world coming to?. Cops can’t even choke out a nigger anymore.

    By Nelson on May 29, 2020

  58. Those days are over my friend Nelse and Derrick. We are the minority now. They just the cop with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter. not more than 25 years. I hope the jury acquits and finds him not guilty

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  59. DD, I wish it was swappers the cops kneeled on and hear that prick say I CANT BREATHE and MOMMY. Fcking piece of shit

    By Derrick on May 30, 2020

  60. Derrick, did you see there were 3 cops kneeling on the porch monkey. We need more cops like that my friend. Its what we call a high tech lynching. I hope Chump means what he said if they loot we will shoot. Tonite is must see TV

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  61. The niggers are saying unless all 3 cops are convicted of 3rd degree murder and manslaughter, there will be hell to pay tonite.The jews and al coon sharpton are behind this

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  62. You know he was talkin jive Derrick. Niggers especially the women cant keep their mouths and monkey lips shut. Always talking smack

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  63. David, derrick, I’ll bet the black apes won’t be satisfied with Murder 3 and manslaughter charges . They want Murder 1 and either life without parole or death for all those cops .

    By HHH on May 30, 2020

  64. HHH, Im waiting for the other rabble rouser Jesse Jerkson. The other spook Rev AL already got his monkey face in the video. Your right, the niggers and the white crackers that think their black all want muder 1 and all 3 convicted. Rome will burn tonite

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  65. I wish Rev Al and Jesse would ram me with their big black logs up my hershey hwy

    By U L E on May 30, 2020

  66. To all my friends on Big O, I went to the doctor today and was told I have stage 1 rectal cancer. Please pray for me

    By Mark on May 30, 2020

  67. Not funny Hebrew Mark . Bad humor , just like all those Jew comedians in the fifties and sixties.

    By HHH on May 30, 2020

  68. David / Derrick, I heard that murder 3 and manslaughter carries 25 max in Minnesota. With a good Lawyer that cop may walk with probation. Can you imagine the Black Ape response to that ? Gotta love it .

    By HHH on May 30, 2020

  69. Look for the apes to do more looting and burnings the next few days .

    By HHH on May 30, 2020

  70. Triple H, the niggers and jews are cut from the same cloth. slavery and the holocaust. life happens. get over it

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  71. DD, wheres that white trash faggot Billy. probably bending over blowing himself or doing a gloryhole in some seedy mens bathroom

    By Derrick on May 30, 2020

  72. Some idiots will do anything for attention, right mark the kike

    By David Duke on May 30, 2020

  73. Big O - Here’s a chance to distance yourself from the bigots who infest this site. Unless that is, you condone it, or are yourself a bigot. Do the right thing. Get rid of these trash talking cowards, who without the cover you provide them, wouldn’t have the nuts to speak like they do outside of Mom’s basement. Bet you won’t do it.

    By george on May 30, 2020

  74. George, how bout you suck my big white cracker schlong and then I can rest my nuts on your chin. I’ll show you my nuts and ten you can drain them. You must be a jew piece of filth

    By Derrick on May 30, 2020

  75. Derrick - Go fuck yourself. I hear when you got circumcised they did it by kicking your sister in the chin. The day I worry about what you think will be a cold day in Hell.

    By george on Jun 1, 2020

  80. The peanut brains who leave sick racist comments here have no respect for the living or the dead. I love Big O’s music offerings, but do you really want to be associated with these creeps by giving them a platform for their filth?
