  1. It is fascinating to see just how often people who express really prejudiced things in the form of a joke assume the objections must be due to someone else’s lack of humor.

    By fascinating, I of course mean ironic.

  2. I’m Jewish (female) and my husband is Not White, male and both of us are painfully familiar with “bigotry as humor.” I do NOT believe that the teller of the “joke” believes for a single minute that he’s being funny. He is expressing his racism, misogyny, or whatever and thinks he/she can manipulate you by making you look like a snob or a bad sport. If you don’t buy into it and call them on it, it may not stop them from telling “jokes” to other people, but it can at least stop him/her (it?) from telling them to YOU. Better than nothing, anyhow.

  3. Reblogged this on Serendipity and commented:
    Jokes that express bigotry — regardless of the ethnic or racial group or sex — are NEVER intended to be funny.. They are attempts to manipulate you by making you look like a “bad sport” or as having “no sense of humor.” Don’t let them get away with it.
