Is a comment which references a particular race, was created by, and most commonly used by that same race, actually racism? I suppose one can be racist against their own race, which still doesn't make it right. Judging all of any race by what the mainstream of society's eye sees in movies, TV or any other forms of entertainment is certainly naiveté. But face the facts: It is funny. People who think otherwise are either idealists who probably don't even know anyone of that race or sitting at their panther party every week to show their "true colors." I have friends and associates who are of the race referenced by this pun and if I were to say that phrase, they would assuredly laugh at me because I’m "white." There, I said it. I am a color, and the only way it defines me is by my visual description.
