That was odd... I wonder why she decided it was okay?

I told you the swastika on the forehead tattoo was a bad idea.

It sounded like a good idea at the time.

Wow, she's an idiot. You can't make racists jokes at work ever. And you can't make racists jokes in front of new people until you've demonstrated to them that you're not a racist. And the reason for that second one is so people understand that it's just a joke and that you're not really racist (satirizing racism, mocking racism, etc.). Maybe she's racist?

I know what you're saying.. The only thing I can think of is I'm actually a pretty easy guy to get along and joke with, perhaps she assumed I knew she was joking?

Hey, remember those dudes that got on the elevator with us in Chicago a few years back popping all those racist jokes?

You must look like whitey supreme or something to the local hillbillies.

Those were racist? I thought they were directed at you. Had I known it was racist I wouldn't have laughed and pointed so much.

At Wizard World last year, there was a black guy dressed up as the Thing eating food in the cafe area. We started making jewish jokes hoping to get his attention (I'm Jewish, so it was okay). HE didn't notice, though. I don't think he was really the Thing.

Oh tell me you dont remember those guys...

"the only way to deactivate a black person detector is to block it with golf clubs" or whatever...I dont even remember what all they said now.

Can we hear the joke with the understanding that if you are deemed racist for the retelling that you are at least our racist and any accusations of such will happen behind your back?

Well, here's the truth. I didn't hear the whole thing as she was saying it quietly and my near deafness.

This is how it went down:

Shane, you want to hear a racially offensive joke.

Me: Huh?

Her: What's the definition of renig?

Mumble, mumble.. Asshole, mumble mumble.. Isn't that funny?

Me: Huh. and walks away.

Maybe she's just stupid. You should tell her it's not renig, it's reneg: short for renegotiation.

Because you're white.

Imagine the stress you could relieve by throwing the corporate book at this person. I mean she just gave you license to send her to "sensitivity training" and all manner of inconveniencings. Push the button, man!

If I start making Jewish jokes, is it ok?

James Patrick

The fact that she told you the joke. In most cases, white people tell white people who they don't know jokes like that because they project that since it's okay with them it's okay with others if they're white.

There are tons of ways to handle something like that.

My personal non-violent way it to give them a deadpan stare and tell them that my signifigant other is whatever race they were making the joke about.

Using the word faggot can be pretty hot some times.

I dated this guy who was a roadie for Pornos for Pyros who liked to be called a faggot while being violently held down and sodomized.

roadie, pig bottom...

Unfortunately, I know the joke and I can say that it is not that funny.

The joke is:

What is the definition of renege?

A shift change at McDonalds.

Yeah, not funny.

Or at last that is the version of the joke I heard.
