1. If you think racism only exists in Western capitalist countries, visit the Soviet Union, or Israel, or India or Pakistan, or any state with a theocratic government. Or any other country for that matter.
  2. Humor that ridicules our personal differences from others isn’t necessarily racist. Humor that ridicules others’ differences usually is, no matter how much we insist otherwise. The need to reassure others that the jokes are just good humor and fun and not racist? Definitely racist.

Sorry.
