Some folk appear desperate to find a race card to whinge about when none exists.
I sometimes tease my English black friends when for example someone was a prick to them 'it must be coz you is black', and they tease me with 'it must
be coz you is sheep-shagging Welshman' - I think we all need to chill out and recognise the difference between funny banter and being unkind.
Being cruel to someone should not be considered worse because of race/gender/sexual orientation/disability or whatever, it is the baseline
act/intention of being cruel that is more damaging, not the thing/label the cruel person directed their cruelty at.
If this film is indeed a critique of race relations then the humour may well help to emphasise the ridiculous judgement of people based on skin
colour...but only if the audience is intelligent enough to understand it.
