Why do they drive cars with tiny steering wheels?

Why do they prefer lowriders?

(Some old ones from 8th grade...)

Co-worker: Did you hear that Angelina Jolie adopted another kid, this time from Vietnam?

You: Oh really?

Co-worker: Yeah. The poor kid probably doesn’t even know he’s Asian yet. He certainly doesn’t know he’s going to be a horrible driver. Or that he’s going to be amazing at doing nails. He has no idea! [Laughs heartily.]

You: [Look perplexed.] Sorry, I don’t get it.

Co-worker: What do you mean?

You: I guess I’m missing something. Why is that funny?

Co-worker: [Looks embarrassed.] Um, well you know how people say that Asians are bad drivers. And a lot of people who work at nail salons are Asian.

You: But those are just stereotypes, aren’t they?

Co-worker: Well, all stereotypes have some truth to them.

You: So you actually believe that all Asians are bad drivers and are good at doing nails?

Co-worker: No, no, it’s just… Never mind.

Wow what great advice.

She points out this little censoring goal at the end of her article:

(By the way, the joke I used in this scenario is an actual joke told recently on The Letterman Show by a comedian named Chelsea Handler. Of course, nobody on the show bothered to point out how racist it was.)

i love people that feel the need to comment on my off colornes i usually just attack them, and point out the flaws in there thinking and tell them to prove me wrong. i will admit though that ive tried to consciously curtail my gruff language, i was recently at an event were i dropped an F bomb and i thought that a few of the people there were going to lynch me, i think me drinking heavily and smelling like burnt leaves didnt help either, im going to bet that we dont get invited back, which wont bother me a bit, i dont need those kind of people
