What do you say when someone tells you a prejudice or sexist joke?


I hate it when someone says, "I am not prejudice, but...". What do you do in these situation? Do you have any advice for me?

    Good point and humor can be a destructive force. The main question is what is the intent of the comedian.

    I understand your position-as a minister- that one could be offended(all life is sacred). Also, I believe that the picture was a stunt of some kind. If the person was really hurt, I would not post the picture.

    pmorries, now you've got me curious. What kind of environment are you in where people keep coming up to you and saying these things to you? I wouldn't sit through it either. I like what mackyi said- act like you don't get it. Now that's funny.

    Are you saying it is a sterotype to show that the KKK burns crosses? Are you saying that the KKK member was having some sort of violence done to him (he lit himself on fire)?

    This happens to white people all the time. Racists think everyone who looks like they do thinks like they do. So you have to say to them, "Don't talk to me like that. I don't approve of that talk."

    I tend to agree with you on that... Some people enjoy being offended... gives them an excuse to be mad... get all mad and carry on like the rude person that they really are... or to show boat for friends... Folks need to just lighten up... forgive

    That's a good response. I don't think laughing to show you are a 'good sport' is the right reaction. I love to laugh but if something isn't funny I think it takes more courage to walk away or object than to go along.

    It's meant to be a joke so why not laugh. Especially if it's funny. I'm pretty sure everyone who commented watches Family Guy or laughs at a satire. Same thing, only in person. Again, let it go. Live life.
