    I don't think that'd be a good idea to do. :roll: :roll: They're not funny either way.

    You'd heavily and distastingly offend the users who may reside from the ethnic background you may be laying into won't go down well with them and most of the others who are culturally open-minded in this forum too.

    Any one heard of Roy Chubby Brown, or Jim Davidson, they throw some race jokes into there performances, but they do state they are only jokes, not a personal view, there jobis humour and if the humour is taking the mickey out of someones race they'll use it, doesnt make them racist.

    Ergo, telling jokes doesn't make them funny.

    OK.. what im trying to say is, why do people take jokes so seriously, people laught at the punchline not the ethnic group the joke is aimmed at, calling some one who is a different race something that refers to them as being different. that is racist, or discrimonating.. theres a huge difference in my opinion,

    It doesn't matter. Its stereotyping most of the time therefore can be offensive. Lets just drop the subject, I'm already getting mad just the fact that this subject was brought up.

    The foundation of ethnic jokes is typically mocking the things which make them different (or which other ethnic groups consider makes them different), often belittling them and perpetuating the stereotype.

    Fwiw, I hate political correctness with a vengeance and consider that no group is above criticism. No-one should be afraid to speak their minds about their own and other groups, but there is a difference between honest criticism and bigoted mockery.
    Manning, Brown et al make (or made in the case of Manning) their money doing the latter, imho.

    Since this is a CODINGforum, lets stick to coding, and leave the jokes, racial or otherwise, to

    PHP Tip: If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.

    Don't forget to save everyone time and mark your thread as Resolved :)

    Aero sorry your getting mad, and sorry if its to do with anything i said, but i was trying to make the point that, if someone african / carribean / asian / other was to make a joke about me being white, or something that some other white guy did. i would not take it offensive, where if they was talking aggressive or seriously then i would take offence, just my view not saying everyone has to see it that way

    I’d also consider myself culturally open minded, yet I’m always open for some intelligent (if one may call it like that) jokes making fun of racial differences. For example I’m a big fan of Dave Chappelle, and I also can’t understand that people take such things so seriously. One should note that there is a difference in deliberately insulting people and making fun of idiosyncrasies. People feeling offended by every little joke should really get some sort of therapy and learn to laugh about themselves at times.
