hmmm......you're only mad because I assume you don't have that type of relationship with your boss.  Your boss basically thought he would...jovially jump into a conversation thinking that all would be well since you joke with Jeff like this.  What he said wasn't that bad considering.  You could have simply pulled something from the dozens and K.I.M.  Now there's going to be a strange, unnecessary tension betwixt the three of you for the rest of your time there. Like other people stated...you kinda opened the door with this one.  I mean...I understand your side of it but...*shrugs*  You might not have a friendly relationship with your boss like you do Jeff but your boss don't know that. 
 
I have white co-workers that I have worked with for 10+ years and we really don't speak on anything regarded to race...or very rarely.  Anything can be misconstrued and the next thing you know you gettin' called to HR over an honest misunderstanding because folks got caught in their feelings.  We all know this so we don't even go there.

I am sorry but this is ridiculous... So it is ok for you to say things like "he s the blackest white guy" cause he likes chocolate women but when your boss does the same thing its a problem and you get offended... Black people always so fast to pull out the racist card . If race is a sensitive matter to you then don't joke around using race with white people. Next thing you know your friend jeff is gonna say something to you in the same purpose of being funny and you are going to call him a racist. 
Bottom line at work keep your relationship professional.

If you can't have that friendly sarcastic relationship with all of them, don't have one at all. If you must have a friend you can joke with, keep it on the low low. You opened the door and you're mad that your boss walked right in it while your homie stopped to wipe his feet.

The boss is probably still looking for his "one black friend".   Poor thing. He tried it, now he can move on to the next potential.  You're takenLOL
