"Must have sense of humor" on job description - does it mean "American whites only"?

it's a very narrowminded thing to say and in my opinion racist...

Update:

I guess you all think it's ok to be racist against Asians and Europeans who have a different cultural/language background and probably won't get your jokes.

    I'm black and I am not offended by it.

    I don't think it's racist, I think it means the boss is an azsshole whose jokes you will have to laugh at or be ostracized

    RACIST??? Wow. saying THAT in itself is quite racist. To ASSUME only a white person is capable of having a sense of humor is incredibly narrow minded.

    No, that is code for 'women likely to sue if they hear a booby joke need not apply'. It doesn't mean you're expect to laugh at their jokes, just not to take them to court over it.

    It has nothing to do with race - THIS is what they mean: "This workplace is so chaotic, you will be so stressed out all the time, we want you to LAUGH instead of going postal & to laugh instead of complaining to management about things"

    It's certainly a very sweeping statement and subscribes to extreme stereotypes. I would say it is extremely biased towards Whites, and racist towards all the others.

    No. It means you must be able to laugh when you see your paycheck.
