Of course I dont want to hear certain people make jokes about certain topics.




Why do certain people get passes though? A yt person can't find the same humor in slavery as a black person? What of the yt person was making a joke that made slave owners look bad? Gary Owens type of guy.


Certain people telling certain jokes could mean a Klan member telling jokes about slavery or baby mamas at a Klan rally. I didnt specify.

exactly 
anything can be funny as long as the delivery is funny 

& I agree with LB also. 
the things that me and my crew talk about would never fly on bhm but it's hilarious

If a klan member and a black comedian tell the same Joke about baby mamas why is one funny and not the other when it's the same joke? Shouldn't the joke be off limits in general then?

Public jokes about race, culture, heritage, religion and spirituality, sexuality, are off limits to me because of all the ignorance in the world, because of how humans learn, because of how complex life is, because of the broken telephone affect.

yes, there are things that are off limits.
jokes that people tell, say a lot about them. 

but if you have the audience for goofy stuff like that, do it.

i can laugh at a joke about almost anything... 

but i think what you guys call, 'clowning' is different. 
i dont think ppl with mental and physical disabilities should be 'clowned' for said disability
