during some of my classes at school me and my friends joke about each others race and stuff is that ok?
Posted 2/4/08
i think so i do that too. i think if it's between your friends or in a friendly setting then it's ok.

just gauge how comfortable everyone is with first, if someone shuffles uncomfortably in a corner then maybee not. i'm like multiracial and i've never had a problem with what people say about any of the race i have.

sure why not i mean i'm asian and i like to joke around some stereotypes about my race. like if you kill me 10 other kids can take my spot. my policy is that you can start a joke about your race its fine but when a different race makes a joke first about your race its not cool.

Sometimes it is ok to do it, but if you can not take a joke then do not tell those kind of joke in the first place. Many people are quick to pull the racism the instant you mention a different race of people. Long story short, do not let your mouth overload you ass.

well i think there a limit not to pass...

Sometimes we can say things that offend some people and we dont realise it.

I remember having fun and making jokes with one of my friend (im not from USA, im french, so yeah, tons of nasty jokes about us =P liberty fries and such~ ) and another of my french friend walked in and was highly offended from some of the jokes we was making.

I think its ok as long its about your own difference. The best "black" joke and "jew" joke i have are from the black or jew people arround me. I have the best french joke as well, i heard them all =P

I think alot of people "like" to be offended and like to belive everyone hate them. They can be real drama queen...
... but there also people that actually belive those jokes and use them as a cover for racism....

I think its better to avoids those type of jokes... In a world where everyone get offended for nothing, where the old "sesame's street" are rated 13+ and where aseptisation is the new revelation, where people dont like to point out (or pointed out) as different, i rather avoid drama as much as i can...

what a shame tho ... the world starting to get so boring >.<

It depends on the situation. I personally dislike racial jokes, however poking fun at racial stereotypes can be hilarious at times. (watch Blazing Saddles for a great example of this)

I think this depends on the person . I think it`s okay . My friend calls me a racist all the time and we`re both Filipinos . The jokes we make about our own race is true , that`s why it`s funny . However , we don`t insult our race or any other race . We just say the truth ... to ourselves . Saying the truth is different from being racist ... isn`t it ?

Yeah ... that`s why I said I only talk about the truth with my friends . I don`t poke fun at other races though just because I want to . Usually , a race just gets dragged in a topic . =/ I do refrain from saying the offensive truth outloud .
