Seriously, whats wrong with people these days? More than half the people i talk to in my school have a problem with black people. Everyone finds it funny making racist jokes and taking the piss, having a laugh and because there's no black students or teachers (apart from one or two maybe) that can be offended, people think it's okay.

It's the year 2010, anyone know why this is still an issue?

Cos theyre ****ing losers.
If its jokingly, you should probably lighten up. One of my best friends is black, hes known as 'Black James' (cos we have a white james aswell) but its in good fun so its just funny. If someone was racist towards and him and was deadly serious about it though, I would probably have to break their jaw.

edit: I live in london, loads of people here try to be racist to be cool, and try to make themself the cockney stereotype that is apparently cool these days.
Its sad as shit.

Theres nothing wrong with racist jokes or saying racist things. Racism is looked upon to negatively. If I said something bad about people with blonde hair, or Canadians, its not that big of a deal. But one black joke and I must be in the KKK. F*CK that. Racism is only bad when it gets to a point where a race is discrimanted against or opressed.

Lok up "joke". When people make jokes about why dithe chicken cross the road, a chicken didn't actually cross the road mate.... Hence "joke".

must...resist...making...black...jokes.

But seriously they're just having fun, I doubt they actually want to go out and kill black people.

Jokes aren't always done with malicious intent. Though I know what it's like, most of the people I meet on a daily basis will use the word 'paki' at sometime during the conversation. Really annoying and always used in some horrific context.

If there are no black people in your school..how is it racist to make a joke about them? Unless your school has a "no black people" policy.

I've never met a black person who enjoys being called a niggar, paki, or have a joke made about them. Who would?

A few days ago my best friend called a black man driving past a paki, so the guy just reversed (furiously), got out the car and threatened him. He inevitably shat himself... What's all good about that?
#17
Just because a black person does not enjoy getting made fun of or being called a certain word, doesn't mean that doing it to them is that bad. Black people wouldn't like it if you told them to go get a job so they could afford more KFC, but in reality, that's just sound advice.

Cuz TS, people watch their TVs and hear racist jokes. People listen to the radio and hear the DJ cracking racist jokes. Comedians make racist jokes. It may be 2010, but people still act racist. It's ok though. Why? It's a joke.

The truth is -- no, it's not ok. But it ain't gonna stop 'til people like you and me, the everyday man starts saying it ain't ok. It ain't ok to say, "I'm white, and there's no blacks here. Here's a black joke." It also also ain't ok to say, "I'm black, and there's no whites here. Here a joke about a cracker." Racism ain't ok, whether you're black, white, mexican, etc. But only by saying it's not ok are we ever gonna make a difference.

TS, tell your friends to not make those kind of jokes please.

Sorry, I now read over the OP's post, I didn't read the racist joke part, so I thought they were just making fun of the stereotypes.

Saying racist jokes doesn't make you a racist IMO. I tell a lot of those jokes and I'm not a racist. They're just funny. Some close black friends of mine find them funny too. Is when it really matters that you must step up to the plate and show people you're not a racist.

Pretty much this. Some years ago i had a class which would make jokes about black people quite often, but it was just for a bit of fun about gangs and hip-hop.
We even had two black fellows making fun of themselves due to the fact that they were super- tall for our age and run super fast, but they were like brothers to us.

So, if I insult your race, it's totally cool with you? I doubt that. But since you're insulting others' race, that's ok? No!

And I'm white, so it ain't like I'm just trying to tell the white man to clean up. I know that some of y'll will start thinking, "Oh, he's just angry at the white man". No, I just think racism needs to go.

I think you're being way too sensitive. Theres a big difference between making a "racist" joke based on stereotypes and such; and actually being a full on racist.

Asian people at my school made jokes about whites, whites made jokes about the asians. Nobody ever got offended though.

Actually, they are hilarious. Wanna hear the best joke in the world? What does a black man and Batman have in common? Can't go a day without robbin'. That's hilarious because it plays on a stereotype that anyone who's not a flaming ****ing idiot would realize is untrue. The problem is racist jokes, it's the stupid assholes who think they're entitled to not be offended.

I find that if you lighten up, your days will be a whole lot better.

crazysam: Go ahead. I'm Native American. Make all the jokes you want, as long as they're actually jokes. I think racism should go too, I just don't pull the card at everything. You can't get rid of racism by trying to ignore race all together.

element: I'm not saying it's a good idea to offend someone, I'm saying that you're going to be offended a lot in your lifetime, so you'd save yourself a headache by not faulting the person who offended you, but faulting yourself for becoming so offended. In other words, "chill".

People i talk to openly say that they don't like black people... Now, there's something not right there. (Whichever way to try and put it)

Obviously, but that isn't a joke. That is outright saying "I don't like blacks" which is a different matter.
