It's kind of a lame joke, and is just as much anti-black as it is anti-white and anti-Democrat. If your ☺ friend told you that joke over beers one night, you might give him a polite chuckle for his time and move on. Nobody would remember it the next day. But because some judge somewhere told the joke to somebody, it's worth squealing about? Come on. I think people are just looking for reasons to tear down those who hold prominent or prestigious positions in society.

Here's an example of an offensive joke that I think is funny:
A priest and a rabbi are standing on the sidewalk talking. An eight year old boy walks by and the priest's eyes light up. He says to the rabbi, "Let's fark him!"
The rabbi says, "Outta what?"

If I ever become rich and famous, I'm sure you'll all point at this post and tut-tut me like the pack of saints you are. :P

Are you sure you're not projecting that subtext?

All I got from that joke is the kid's mom was a whore. I feel like this thread will be full of modern day Don Quixote types.

So, why do you think there was a mention of race if race had nothing to do with the joke?


/curious

Because the kid has to have different features than the mom, otherwise the kid doesn't ask the question and the joke fails.


Bingo.

/curious

You could change the delivery to start with "mommy how come I don't look like daddy" and the premise of the joke doesn't change. The mention of race only serves to set up the notion that the son is different looking from the mother. It still sets up that the mom's a hoe. In the context of the joke the mom is a skank not for farking a black guy but because she farked a dog.



But, that's the point. Words have meaning. He DIDN'T simply ask why they didn't look alike. He asked why he was black. Her response amounted to saying, "stop complaining about being black because not only did I fark black guys at the party, I farked dogs".

That is funny because I get it. If you change it to be PC like people are asking for on the Obama joke it would not be funny.

This is why they are called jokes, they are funny because of sexism, race, religion, sexual orientation etc.....

SJKebab: There's a reference to race and there's a reference to a dog barking. The reference to race is purely a setup to the punchline. The punchline is the mum is such a slut that she possibly engaged in bestial relations. The two sides to this need not be related to each other.

If the judge himself thinks that this is a racist joke, ok fair enough, his call to make. Doesn't mean I agree.

Having said all of this though, the joke is an old one. The name Barrack was stuck in there for an extra edge amongst the gop crowd, but honestly, the joke is funnier without the name.

/still not exactly a great joke either way



You don't have to agree, the fact remains the joke there is an inferred racism that makes the joke "work."

Any non-idiot could see the motive behind this joke, that she was so drunk or high that she even slept with a black man, in fact she so incapacitated that she believes she has sex with a dog.

If you don't see it that way then let's try this:

"A little boy said to his mother; 'Mommy, how come I have blonde hair and you have brown hair?' His mother replied, 'Don't even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you're lucky you don't bark!'"

Does this joke still work?

No, maybe for a group of seven year olds, but not at all the way it did before the edit.

Logic is NOT this hard, why fight it?

You know I usual tolerate your racially charged rants but today your just being contrary for the sake of being contrary. By manufacturing racism where there is little to no intent you cheapen the actual racism that hurts real people and make it easier to dismiss. This was a farking joke, go champion the rights of people impacted in the real world that actually matters.

So maybe he could just take out the racial element and go with "Obama's mom is a whore." Not as funny perhaps, but it retains the theme of the original.

The joke modified in this way doesn't work because anyone with a passing knowledge of genetics could just say "duh, blonde is recessive, therefore the first joke makes more sense and is therefore funnier." The joke modified by reversing the races would work just as well as the original though.

End of the day though, the joke writer (and remember, this joke is a lot older than Obamas term) had comedy in mind first and foremost, so changing it to "The little purple boy said to his green mother" will still keep the premise of the joke intact, but ruin the comedy in it completely. Black and white works because we humans tend be black or white or whatever, but not purple and green....

I can't help but notice that almost all of the anti-Obama "jokes" that I hear from right-wingers are rehashed ones from decades ago. It's like the average right-winger is so senile they keep forgetting that they heard those jokes before or so desperate for validation of their views that they don't care.

Only fresh ones I hear seem to be from nonpartisan comedians.

It's comical at this point, really... Some people just can't admit that a racist judge sent a racist email using his official email address he thought was "funny" and that is incredibly inappropriate, at the very least.

I'm actually not "outraged" over this, as this racist judge seems to be reaping what he sowed, but it is curious to see how far some folks will go to deny obvious racism.

Very similar to the California GOP politician who send out the Obama Bucks email and was just flabbergasted that anyone would think that was racist...

I don't think it counts if you use it and it doesn't make sense. He claimed that the reason the boy HAD to use race instead of asking his mother "why don't we look alike" is that they were a different sex. I explained to him that males and females can look alike.
