    Because I suspect you conform IRL. You're well aware when you're making a comment that's over the line. MOD clearly isn't.

    Dude. If you EVER make a derogatory comment about ANYONE - even in jest - you're a racist. Didn't you know that?

    I used to have a Maori co-worker (he was a police officer). one of the funniest things I remember about him was watching him sing Karaoke to Bon Jovi's "cowboy."

    It's not racist, but you have to admit it would easily come across as saying, "You're all the same to me."
