  • I think there's a huge difference. If you're a funny guy, a light hearted guy, someone who doesn't take the world seriously, your "racial humor" cannot possibly be considered racist unless it is taken out of context.

    "Racist humor" involves the element of hatred. To be honest with you, I think the term racist humor is somewhat of an oxymoron. I don't believe people who have the kind of hatred inside that qualifies them to be racist should ever even be considered humorous. I More..

  • As you recall, Tom, not long ago I was deemed a racist by LL for calling Figgy, John and someone else a "cracker". That's been fixed. "Rocket surgery"? Cool.

    That joke? I heard it once being a redneck trailer trash dude. If you tell it you can change the accent and make it sound like Banshee if you want to. Racism is so fucking stupid! And this comes>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> More..

  • I guess you didn't get the memo.

    Your White.

    So that means you're Racist by default. Regardless of your intent.

  • Four shortest books ever written;

    #1, "Polish Book Of Knowledge"
    #2, "Italian War Hero's"
    #3, "Jewish Business Ethics"
    #4, "Negro's I've Met While Yachting"

  • That wasn't racist. I'll tell you why: Because if you told that joke as a black in an English accent or French accent or even African accent, the joke wouldn't work because it's anchored to geography, not race.

  • "Hey, did you hear about Steve? He slipped on some ice and knocked himself out. When he woke up, his wallet and car keys were gone. Yeah, turns out it was black ice."

    If you laugh because you believe that black people are born inherently drawn to a life of crime, you're racist and the joke is racist. If you laugh because you know it is a misconception by idiots that a race can be genetically drawn to a life of crime and that actually, environment has everything to do with behavi More..

  • I love Tom Brokaw impressions or Thurston Howell III impressions or 'valley girl' impressions making fun of white people stereotypes.

    Did you know different instruments affect different races differently?

  • I'm glad to see that, so far at least, the majority of voters have chosen the "up yours, honkey" option.

  • Haha. I wonder how many white guys voted, "Up your's honkey"? The joke was clean (and funny)!

  • I try to leave censoring to others. The few times I've deleted user comments I've regretted it.

    "It ain't rocket surgery." Ha! I like that.

    The joke was non-pc. If my Congressman told it, he'd be in trouble. But it wasn't racist.

    • @john1054

      I don't even think it's that funny. I actually just wanted to see how many people would thumb it down or call it racist.

      I really didn't expect to have it deleted though.

      I was however waiting to see if it would be rejected by the mods because of the "Cracker-Ass Cracker" bit at the end.

      The whole calling "racism" about everything is getting stupid.

      Crap! You made me play it again until he said 'rocket surgery'. That went right straight over my head the first time.

      I love it! I've got a new term I can use!

      Amen.

      Likewise, if you can't take an insult, turn it around and shove it right back up the person's ass... you should probably GTFO too.

    • @EventHorizon2012 Sensitivity today is used as a new reason to make more ruleslaws for the masses because of a few for a multitude of reasons that I don't understand. People can't be honest with each other without it being misunderstood and feeling insulted... I miss Archie Bunker

  • I see what you're saying, and that sort of joke would work well among friends who all know each other. The problem is, the joke would just as easily get the point across had you not listed race at all. The accent is such, that 'impotent' and 'important' can be blended by anyone from the region. Emphasizing the race takes focus off the region and culture, and puts it squarely on the race. In my opinion. Certainly not the most racist joke I've heard, but definitely in the category.

  • That's easy to answer, it becomes racist when someone finds it offensive. Even if the joke isn't meant to be. Sad truth.

  • That joke is no more racist than making fun of the way people from Jersey talk is racist.

  • You are right. There is a difference, and it has to do with intention. That's why it's difficult for white people to do racial humor. Now if you take Russell Peters, he can do it all day long. People just expect white people to be racist. Think of what Dave Chapelle got away with, with Clayton Bigsby the black white supremacist! Come to think of it, somebody ought to do a white black panther sketch.

    Also. When you used the word "misambiguity" the word you were looking for was simply More..
