I Need Some Sensitivity Training
An African-american woman today told the janitor that her boss’s wastebasket was over flowing.
Would it be in bad taste to call her a brown noser?
Laurie? (HR dropout) arm jerker? (African-american woman) Grandad? (Irish rabble rouser)
UPDATE: As I think about this, it seems that we need equivalent bad taste jokes for us white folks. Somebody come up with a joke about Caucasians that is equally of poor taste and I’ll give equal time.
UPDATE 2: Does the animated gif make the joke more insensitive? more funny?
UPDATE 3: Is The New Yorker cover racist?
Screw the irish. Pack o’ leprechauns. Though for some reason, my server is routed through there. Gio figure …
Anyway, my joke is in equally bad taste as yours, but on a different topic:
How do you make an orphan bleed?
Tell him to clap hands ’til daddy comes home.
Feel free to punch me.
There are plenty of bad taste jokes for Caucasions out there. The difference is: we’re just careful not to say them in mixed company. On the other hand, I say call a spade a spade. Does that mean I’m referring to a a black person or referring to a “situation” as it really is? Maybe it depends on the source it’s coming from and the intent behind it.
Calling a black woman a “brown noser” isn’t offensive to me at all. You’re calling “a spade–a spade” 🙂
Whoa! That was a stretch. 🙂
