Would you people give it a break!!!!! I was born in the north and raised in the south. I have lived in half of the states from sea to shining sea. I spent 10+ yrs. in the military and traveled the globe. I have friends that come from a huge variety of ethnic backgrounds.
Every one of these people are, and always will be, my friends. Every single one of them tell jokes about every other nationality, INCLUDING THEIR OWN!!! We crack on everybody, including each other....BECAUSE THE JOKES ARE FUNNY!!! Quit being so thin-skinned!!!
I walk into Tommy's house and the first words out of his mouth are, "whatup cracker?" My reply is, "Hey my 'n-word'!" We are best of friends!!!!!
My point is that as time has passed, it seems that some of us can, and have, put aside our biases. Hopefully, in the near future, so can the rest of us.
I guess I'm not supposed to say the "N" word. Sorry, I didn't know it was censored.
