Good grief. Calling that joke, or perhaps its teller, 'racist' does injustice to victims of real racism and desensitizes us to what real racism is. If anything, the joke pokes fun at racism. Or perhaps it pokes fun at the overly politically correct.
It is a shame that we've swung the pendulum so far to the other side that we can't, under the concept of 'coming together', laugh at one another, at ourselves, and at our mutual foibles.
