“Whoever said white people can’t jump clearly hasn’t seen the footage from 9/11”

Jokes about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center are numerous, although not politically correct. One of the saddest scenes of the day were the people trapped in a burning building who jumped to their deaths.

White Men Can’t Jump (1992) is a sport movie comedy that popularized this expression. A politically incorrect joke developed:

“Whoever said white people can’t jump clearly hasn’t seen the footage from 9/11.”

“Whoever said white men can’t jump obviously didn’t see the events of 9/11 unfold” was posted by Angry Chelsea Man on Twitter on February 15, 2011.


Wikipedia: World Trade Center (1973-2001)
The World Trade Center was a large complex of seven buildings in Lower Manhattan, New York City, United States. It featured landmark twin towers, which opened on April 4, 1973, and were destroyed in the September 11 attacks, with 7 World Trade Center collapsing later that day due to the damage it suffered when the twin towers collapsed that morning. The other buildings in the complex were severely damaged by the collapse of the twin towers, and their ruins were eventually demolished.

At the time of their completion, the “Twin Towers” — the original 1 World Trade Center, at 1,368 feet (417 m); and 2 World Trade Center, at 1,362 feet (415 m) — were the tallest buildings in the world.

Anyone who thinks white men can’t jump needs to take a closer look at the 9/11 footage.
