    I hate having to explain jokes.

    Try this one.

    You might want to review your comments and the above definition to understand why it is bigotry.
    Well, if you can't come up with any explanation for your comments I guess I can't really respond to them. But if you think something I said was bigotry or that something I said means that I think you have never been the victim of discrimination, please explain. Otherwise I guess we'll just let it drop.

    Fair enough. If you hate having to explain your jokes, you might want to consider not cracking jokes that can be perceived numerous ways.

    They are generally meant for people who aren't all up in arms about minor problems in life and take things said solely within that context, but are for people who can relax and have fun.

    This ad if far from "innocuous." It is toxic, racist horsesh*t. If you cannot see that then I suggest you seek counseling.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    You backed off the “white supremacist” label. I think you know where I was about to take you if you hadn’t. that’s good enough for me.

    What about it do you consider "racist"? It seems obviously and overtly anti-racist to me, no?

    I didn't back off of anything. I have made no personal attacks and am in compliance with the rules here. But certainly I still firmly believe that kneejerk reactions to fight against anything that tries to counter racism is white supremacy. No hedging on that at all.

    And the topic of this thread never occurred to you when you posted that for those who can relax and have fun did it. Do you make jokes about death during funerals too? I can laugh about death but I don’t do it at funerals for obvious reason.

    BTW, is that you in the green tights in your sig-pic?

    Well, a funeral tends to be a serious problem ...
