You have sold your children and your soul to your regressive overlords yet.

Its because your not PC enough and you trigger SJWs who can't handle the way you guys speak.

We weren't always racist, but we sure as hell have gotten more so recently.

I don't think it had much to do with jokes or puns.
It's stuff like the Cronulla riots and openly attacking people of different races on public transport.
Only recently in the past few weeks there were two girls from Asia talking in there native language getting screamed at by a woman on a bus "we speak English here go back to where you came from if you don't speak English" It's stuff like that goes around the world due to youtube etc and gets everyone labeled.

All countries have some form of a negative label attached to them.

Hmm, not familiar with this as an American. Any idea what parts of the world this stereotype persists?

Race relate jokes have always been funny when meant in good humor. Somewhere, somehow, people have forgotten this. And now people just get "triggered". It's stupid. Special snowflakes got their fee fees hurt. Good luck surviving life where the world is a cruel unfair bitch. Grow up and grow a pair. At the very least, it good to know that natural selection is not on their side. They will select themselves out and only the strong will remain. WEW.

Huh, Australia? Can't say I've heard of this. One thing that does piss me of about Austrailia is the censorship. I am pretty sure someone of my tastes would get arrested for child porn on the mere thing that my pornstars LOOK under 18. Fuck that shit. Oh, and spiders. Austrailian outback is not to be messed with.

From my personal anecdotal experiences in Victoria, Sydney and Queensland, aboriginal or people with aboriginal ancestry aren't treated like total shit, of course I've heard quite a few jokes that most non Australians would deem "racist" directed towards aboriginals but that's just Australia, the country of dark humour.

Edit: Usually these jokes are exchanges between mates or fellow adolescents.

"It was just a joke" is the first refuge of the racist when called on being one.

Lot's of Australians aren't racist, but many are ... and so deeply racist that they actually believe that the "race related puns and jokes" are "all in good humor" when they are used to reinforce the idea that Anglo Australians are superior to Aboriginal Australians, Southern or Southwestern European Australians, or Asian Australians.

When we went to Australia, my wife and I had no idea of the constant stream of abuse that our African/American children were subjected to in a lower middle class High School in western Newcastle. We didn't actually find out about it until years later.

I have not heard of that title of "Dark humor". I mean, we are talking about the country that banned "Left4Dead 2" at one point, and in terms of dark humor, "The Stick Of Truth". You do not deserve the term.
