It's just your taste in humor. Jokes depend on the listener being familiar with a certain set of assumptions, and they are funny due to how they use those assumptions in an unexpected way (either disputing what's assumed to be true, or confirming what's assumed to be false). "I just flew in from Miami, and boy are my arms tired!" is an example.
You're familiar with lots of racial stereotypes, so those are assumptions that you can see some humor in. Racist jokes always work by confirming what the listener knows to be false (on some level within him/herself - even if he/she will never acknowledge it). If they really believed the stereotype to be rock-solid fact, it wouldn't be funny to them. It would just be re-statement of a fact.
That you think they are "so fkn funny" distinguishes you from a true, dyed-in-the-wool racist, who would not find such jokes amusing...because the punch-lines always seem to be simply, inevitable fact - nothing all that funny about them.

B/c the whiny white libs have taught the
young folks to be hyped up & way over sensitive
over the dumbest things such as jokes sadly :(

Most racist jokes are not at all funny unless you're mentally ill, ignorant or just uneducated.
