When things are genuinely funny they are less offensive or not at all offensive and can even serve to ease racial tension. I agree with that.Ok Dave. I will assume you have started this thread with the best of intentions so I'll give it a go, yes i laughed at that, because its, making fun of a cultural stereotype.
Lets say someone posted a photo of a merino sheep and said, this is know as a merino, or in NZ as a hot date on a Saturday night, i would laugh at that too because people are having fun with a cultural sterotype.
Maybe others see it diffetently, im sure they do.
