I wouldnt think so. Ive laughed at many racist jokes and even told some once in a while but I dont think that makes me a racist, just maybe a little insensitive at worst. I have no problem with someone sharing a racist joke with me even about my own race as long as I can tell there is no malice behind it. But I ask this question because I shared a black racist joke with my black ex boyfried and he accused me of being a narrow-minded bigot. told him that if he wasnt comfrtable enough with who he was to be able to laugh about it he was the narrow-minded one. and would I really be going out with him if I was a racist?

anyways MHO is that racist jokes are just words to make you laugh and there is nothing wrong with them

as long as they are not used at an inappropriate time and/or with a racist attiude...

words are just words after all right??

or do you think that even laughing at one of these jokes is just sick??

Racist jokes are well...racist.

However I don't think it makes you a bad person particularly, some of the jokes shared in my household are rather grim and we all (well both of us) laugh at them.

I wouldn't go around making inappropriate jokes around people I didn't know/knew would be offended, like last night both Greg and I wanted to make a joke about our friend and decided against it because of the company we were in.

f*** no! Racist jokes are the s***, especially when someone of the race in the joke tells them

However, I wouldn't condone it.

I don't think so. Though it may define your tastes a lil, who's to judge anyway? If someone thinks it's in bad taste, just make fun of them.

How many racists does it take the screw in a light bulb?






None, racists don't like to be enlightened.

It depends if the person telling the joke is racist; and also the content of the joke.

the ones ive heard are pretty soft nothing really hard core so i cant even see why anyone would be more than mildly surprised at them.

but i have friends of all nationalities and have nothing but love for everyone. if make fun of anyone i always make sure they wont take it to heart and let them know that I do it out of love. lol

I only find them truly funny though if said 'racial' joke is told to me by the person of that color/or nationality themself; then it's hysterical!

i think in general some people sometimes look for reasons to be offended...also if a white comedian makes fun out of black people there is national uproar but if a black comedian (for example that dude in america...goofy one...is it jamie fox??) cant remember his name but he slams white people all the time and its apparently hilarious. I think private jokes in your own home is different to say comedians who are seen by millions of people.
