That was hilarious!!

If you can`t laugh at stuff like this, you`re either too brain washed by the PC mafia or you`re dead. You know the jokes are just as funny when a black guy makes fun of white people with the stereotypes. We all got `em and they`re all funny!!

racist, he says its racist all the way through the thing, or stereotype, but its funny, he`s not saying it in bad taste, he`s not offending anybody, except for over sensitives

vv What Golkar said.

I pulled a similar pseudo-racist prank a while back with a dear friend of mine from Iran (made easy cause he`s extremely gullible!). We both worked at the same oil company together, and shared a desk sitting opposite each other so that our flatscreen monitors were back-to-back. Note also that we had standardised company equipment, keyboards etc.

He went out to grab a coffee, so I swapped my keyboard with his. When he came back and sat back down, I started touch-typing on his keyboard on the email window he had left open:

"Mr. Mohammadi, this is the US Dept of Homeland Security. We have hacked into your internet connection. You are under investigation for terrorist activities linked with Al Qaeda. Please remain at your current location, an officer will be with you momentarily. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR LOCATION".

Yeah, he crapped himself. I crapped myself laughing.

I love Gabriel Iglesias. He`s brilliant. As far as racism goes, I believe this is where intent comes into play, to some extent. If he had intended this to be nothing more than an insult, it would be horribly racist. Yes, it IS still racist, but did it not seem like his friend understood the joke? The intent was correctly identified, thus a racist joke becomes a "good" joke. Obviously, this is not something you`d do to your boss, or someone you don`t really know, as they may not construe your intent correctly.

Anything can be used for the ideas of "good" and "evil", racism is no exception. It`s when people stop viewing everything so one-sidedly that they will finally understand that right and wrong are just words.

At this point (in the US at least) if you have a problem with race (from either side) its because you have decided to have a problem with race.

This was intended to focus on race and it was funny >because< of that.

i still dont understand how people still believe that you have to be white to be racist. any person can be a racist. it is racist to look at any other person of a different color skin in a different way than you would at someone of your own skin color.

This story was pretty funny, however the rest of his material is mediocre. He has waaaaaay too many fat jokes. We get it, you are fat and not ashamed!
Good voicework and sound effects though.

This is funny, specially the white girl thing at the end.
I can take racist jokes well, even though this wasn`t to offend anyone.
Me and my boy friend cuss each other like this all the time (I`m black, he`s white)... the joy!

it`s not racist because it wasn`t intended to insult or demean a race. It was just funny. Racism isn`t what you say, it`s what the intent behind it is. Actually, it kind of bothers me that there are things people are afraid to say for fear of being branded racist. For example, I was in a shop a few days ago and I talked to one of the assistants who was Asian (I don`t know which specific country). Later on, talked to a different worker about the same thing and he directed me to talk to the same person who was helping me earlier. When he asked who I had talked to I said: "I can`t remember what his name was. It was the Asian guy". He was the only Asian person working there (at the time). After I had left the shop I wondered if that may have come off as insensitive or something but soon I realised that I had done nothing wrong. That guy is Asian and there shouldn`t be any reason why you can`t use that trait to describe him.

Racism is racism, It doesn`t matter what your color is. What can be hurtful is the intent behind it, Here the intent was obviously a joke. They knew him as a friend and didn`t do it to hurt his feelings.

Even so, This joke could`ve gone horribly wrong. When in doubt don`t cross that line, You might regret it as Dr. Laura did a few weeks back.

"It`s not racist because he isn`t white, right?"

Sort of. Racism isn`t something you say, it`s something you feel. When a white person does it, it isn`t funny, because for a long time, people said those things and it wasn`t a joke.

I`m not talking about the 1400s. I`m talking about the 1980s when it was still a big big thing, and it was still unacceptably high in the 90s and 00s, and importantly, now.

Similarly:
If an actual German did this, it would be offensive to Jews. He`s not, so it isn`t.

He`s white though. So... it`s not that that`s the problem.

I agree with Gabriel. I`m portuguese. If someone handed me a "racist" gift basket full of everything stereotypical of Portuguese (Madeira wine, chourico, garlic, fava beans, sweet bread, etc) I`d just be like, "Thank you..."
