    • A question for you Ian.

      OK,you see my joke a racism. Fair enough.IMO it's simply humour but you are allowed to think what you want.

      Q. I have seen plenty of Black acts take the mickey out of white people as a staple part of their act. They pick on our personality,colour,music tastes,inability to dance,size of our penis,to mention but a few things.
      If it's done well, i laugh like a drain at the stereotypes they paint white people.

      But if it's meant as comedy, then that is fine with me.

      Do YOU see black comics who use white people as their material as Racist????

      I'm just interested to know, because i don't see it that way

      • FWIW, those black comics are, IMHO, lazy, unoriginal and racist. There is no 'white' personality, music taste, dance ability, or even penis size. I think some genuinely funny guys like Chappelle and Rock make jokes about race without resorting to these kind of stereotypes.

        It always seemed to me that those jokes about the way that they think white people act and dance etc are more about middle class people than race.
