not racist.not anti-semitic. set a good tone for the speech. 100% non-offensive. if you find any racism or anti-semitism in this its because you were looking for it from within your own stereotypes

why must Jews have the word anti-semitic, why not say racist like the rest of the world?

Joke was pretty funny and it wasn't in poor speech to start with that joke either the joke extremely relevant to most peoples economic situations they need help the help is out there for them but they can't get the help they need.

I'm not sure how it's anti semitic. Even without the racial identities of the people in joke, it would have been funny.

AND THE WINNER IS: Not racist!
With second place going to "It's in poor taste for a ranking government official to start a speech on econimoics with an ethnic joke" (I paraphrase heavily here, lolz!)
All things considered (with one OBVIOUS exception) this was an excellent discussion! I hope it releaved your boredom & you got some LoLs.

(joke)
ok, hahaha, this half-black, half-white guy gets elected President of the United States, see...
the remainder of this post has been edited because any joke about Mr Obama is racist, eh?

Not racist at all. The word is thrown around far too often these days

I wouldn't call that anti-Semitic and I thought it was quite good. In fact, the story has people disagreeing without shooting each other.

ok so anytime somebody anywhere mentions someone's nationality it means it's racist? i'm so sick of living in these bullsh*t PR times. everyone needs to stop being so sensitive over the little crap. i bet you that 95% of jewish people would find this joke HALARIOUS but here we are discussing it as though it has hurt your personal feelings. i think the definition for racism needs to be cleared up or changed or something.

I thought it was funny! Racist, whatever. I don't even know what true racism is anymore.

This would be a good read for you LazyMe484. "Race" rights and the law in Canada's Supreme Court

... and I smell a troll by the name of jeepjones.

5Cats may be wrong as usual, but that is no reason for 7 posts and personal insults.

In the 1980s, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Jews are a race, at least for purposes of certain anti-discrimination laws.


I don't live in the US. Are jews still a race for me?

Come on! This is trivial. jasonlowe is arguing that the earth is flat.

Jews are not a race.

You too 5Cats! LOL! Life too short to be worried about a joke you Dip S H I T!

Thank you jeepjones for you fair, unbiased opinions. You'll notice I said "you decide" eh? So this is how Liberals conduct a conversation, thanks for your input. Slander, attacks, selective blindness, swearing. Oh, well done! Can't argue with that, eh?
VV @pelcurus Outstanding first post! Welcome to IAB don't worry, not all IABers are as ignorant as jj is.
AND I point out again that this administration (with the help of the MSM) CONSTANTLY cries race, yet they themselves are pretty loose in that regard. This is not some low-level flunkey, he's a guy who should have known better. Yet he's given a free pass, eh?

it cast the Jewish merchant in a positive light, he was the clever protagonist

As a person who is quite adept at racial humor, I should point out that the original joke doesn't mention anything about the Taliban. It's just a guy wandering the desert and the Jewish owner asks if he'd like to buy a tie. The joke is racist because of the intent to point out the greed of the Jews. Just because he spun it to the direction of a despised group doesn't make it any less racist.
True, he could've replaced the word Jew with merchant, but he didn't. You can find the joke in almost any joke book with racial humor from the 80's.

Totally not racist. It would be racist if he repeated the phases that the man used, this is simply a funny situation where a man gets back at someone for abusing him. Funny stuff, i may start using this.

How on EARTH was that anti-semitic? Because it was mentioned that the man was Jewish? Is there a stereotype about Jewish people being funny and clever that they mind and that is being perpetuated here or something? The nationalities, races or religions of any of the people in that joke were completely unrelated to the humour.

It could have been any other nationality and it could have been taken as racist/hateful.

His delivery was clean, and not mean to offend. He could have picked any other nationality/religion, but Jewish was the one that best fit the situation of the joke.
