Is racism in light of racism ever ok?


Many comics and normal everyday citizens make fun of racism by making jokes about stereotypes. Is this fine to do?

    Yes, in face to face situations care and respect are needed. This is not what the original question was about however. It was, I think, about whether it is acceptable to fight racism by mocking racists.

    And how does one insure they do not offend anyone in telling a racial joke? Especially if you are a comedian?

    But then, light hearted stereotyping isn't really racism. Some englishmen would be offended by the 'tea & crumpets' stereotype, but there won't be wars over it. Plus we'd always laugh when a comic says it xD

    If I had a group of friends and we made fun of our cultural differences in an effort to overcome the differences is an example I could personally see happening. We have no intent of harming the other or creating tension.

    Caucasians/lighter skinned people have been the majority in America for a long period of time, and may not be seen as needing as much protection.

    It may be possible to bring people together by sharing and excepting differences. It could be way that people can learn about others when just asking may have seemed inappropriate before.

    My personal belief is that there is only one race. There are differences in appearances, cultures, and nationalities. To what extent do you believe people should not make jokes about differences.

    I believe people see differences no matter how small. Even in families among siblings differences are noticed. I personally like that we have differences especially in culture. How we acknowledge and accept those differences is important.
