If something isn't insensitive, or offend SOEMBODY, then I don't think it can be funny. What would a neutral comment be? "I like horses". There, that didn't offend anybody :-b

Look at this testimonial, "After saying a multisyllabic word such as "understand," Johnny will often follow it with a translation for my benefit like "Dig?" I am glad that he makes his big words accessible to me."

If anything this is a jab at racist white people. And it's funny, so I don't have a problem with it. What has this society come to if we can't even make fun of racists? Jeez... :-D

anyways, the thing that i dont like is sometimes people make such a big deal about stuff like Howard Stern or racial jokes but just aren't nearly as much aware about real-life stuff like teenage pregnancies or racial profiling.

Well about racial profiling..... what is different about it then age profiling or gender profiling? The latter two are used all the time by insurance companies.

The problem I see with racial profiling is that if it was implemented at airports, then the security for people of a rae not considered dangerous would be given an easier chance to slip by security with bad intentions, since the focus would be on another race. I'm sure this is the case right now with airports and how they treat Arabs, but it wasn't implemented by management; it's employees using common sense. The problem at airports can be applied to all other facets of society where it may occur. I not saying convict somebody based on race, gender or age, but paying extra attention to people who statistically are higher risk is not a bad idea.

If 75% of convenience store robberies are commited by people with purple skin, and 5% of convenience store robberies are commited by people with green skin, who would you follow around if you owned a convenience store?

And let me jsut say that I'm not condoning racial discrimination in a sense that many of you see it, I'm saying it's not different than age or gender discrimination. Don't lynch me :-o
