Kind of inspired by Zoot Allures' thread and some of the responses.

Do you make racist jokes? Do you find them funny or offensive? Do you have any limitations on racist jokes and only find certain types funny?

I'll admit I find racist jokes funny and my friends and I sometimes make racist jokes.

EDIT: The first option was supposed to say "Racist jokes are alright and funny"

Jokes are jokes. I will laugh at racist, sexist, dead baby, pedo, religious or personal jokes. Doesn't bother me.

You should be able to joke about anything. As long as it's funny.

I can't stand people who are all hush-hush around a racist joke. Humour is humour, stereotypes are fun. Being a politically correct sore-ass is not.

They're funny because... well, they're jokes. I think people who get offended by jokes are incredibly stupid.

Racist jokes are hilarious and I have no problem with them.
However, if there is someone in the vicinity who is taking offence to it then I will stop immediately.

As long as you're using the "racism" solely on the grounds of humour/irony or satire then I find it acceptable.

If you're using it to be hurtful or hateful then you're gonna be losing teeth.

There's nothing wrong with them, but rarely will I make one. My priorities lie elsewhere

I don't mind them as long as they're said in good spirit. If they're said by someone who's actually racist it's not cool.

Stereotypes exist BECAUSE THEY'RE TRUE! Not everyone of a particular race will fit a stereotype, but a lot will. If someone doesn't feel that they fit a racial stereotype then they really shouldn't be offended.

I hate the whole PC bullshit.

To further my comment, I personally have no problem with black comedians making jokes about my race or culture.

"The black guy be all like this. And then you get that one white guy who'll be all like this. I mean what is up with that!?"

I've heard a joke to that effect a thousand times before and I've never taken any offence to it. Obviously it's stupid to assume that just because you don't mind it directed at yourself that others shouldn't mind it being directed at them, but with the enormous amount of joking going on from both sides of the race fence there is a claim to the notion

I prefer jokes about stupid people, like George Carlin.

But that doesn't mean I won't watch my fair share of Dave Chappelle or Richard Pryor (sorry man)

No worries, if I ever write a script which involves a character parodying Richard Pryor, his name will certainly be Robert Pritchard.

Comedy is equal oppurtunity. Black people have jokes told about them, as do white people, Asians, and all other races.

I think theyre wonderful. Anything goes around me, as long as the person making the funnies arent actually racist or serious.


If theyre making the joke to hurt someone else, I wont laugh at their expense. I dont care how funny you are, if youre racist, you can go suck a dick.

They're disgusting and should be abolished. Anyway, enough about Jews...

It's not the racism that makes them funny, it's the puns or similar joke features they use that make me laugh. I think racist/"offensive" jokes are completely fine as long as people don't meant them.

That they're funny and politically incorrect.

If people find them offensive, then it usually shows that their views about themselves are as old-fashioned as the people who gave then shit for it.

Don't really care, if it's funny, it's funny. If it isn't, it isn't. It's a joke.

Loathe racism, but love racist jokes, even though they might cross the line from time to time.

Don't mind as long as they're funny. I can see why it bothers some, and there are some I heard that kinda crossed the line to the point where I didn't think it was funny (about lynching and stuff) but I think some need to lighten up and have a laugh. Getting all upset or offended isn't gonna do any favors, besides possibly making you look like an uptight douchebag.

Depends if it is a joke, or if it is a racist that is joking but actually being serious with it.
