    Well sure...I mean, a joke about all Arabs being terrorists is obviously going to be funnier and make more sense than a joke about all Japanese being terrorists. But if the speaker/audience actually believed that all Arabs were terrorists, that wouldn't be funny either. What would be funny about it? They'd just view it as a simple statement of fact.

    It seems to me that the humor from racial jokes comes from the fact that the people KNOW that it's a stereotype. The target of the joke is the stereotype itself, as much as the race in question.

    Then you liked a lot of other comedians' shows. He stole material. His name is Ned. Chappelle was funnier.

    I think racial humor is funny. And I will tell you why...

    Because if we can't laugh at our selfs, we have issues.

    I know the humor is based on stereo types. As we all know a little truth exists in every stereo type from the "redneck pickup truck" to blacks and "orange and grape" flavored anything.

    If not done in a hurtful way it can be quite funny and even enlightening at times.

    People take race way to serious.
