Ok.. my best friend is black and we have been for 30 years. We pull racists jokes on each other, does that make us racists?


Ike for thanksgiving I had a paper plates with watermelons on them, and his reaction was and I quote. If your gonna pull this prank make sure it a chicken not a turkey

Update 2:

Nd at Christmas I’m sure he will get me back. Does this make us racists or just friends picking on each other

Update 3:

And I know he would always have my back and if anyone was ever racist towards him I would have his

Update 4:

He was my best man at my wedding, my god father to my kids and I am his. And we have been best friends since kindergarten, he was my next door neighbor growing up and I love him like a brother 

Update 5:

I’m white by the way

    No.  Just like black friends calling each other the n word is not racism.  Just like women friends calling each other 'slut' is not sexist.

    Yes if someone heard you and mistake it that you are pertaining to them.

    You're both black and have been for 30 years?

    Racism is about hate. This doesn't sound like hate.

      Wow, and old Southern Plantation Owners were friends with their slaves for life too.  Many of the whites there were raised by black nannies.  They loved their slaves.  Yes, friends can still be racists if one believes their color makes them superior.

    News flash. Liberals are now saying anyone

    Is what ever they think they are. So if they

    Think they are a black or asian or white or

    Male or female you have to treat them like

    They are. It's delusional and dim witted but

    That is just how crazy democrats have become.

    As long as you two are ok with joking like

    That with each other it's ok. Try to keep that

    Fun time private. As looney liberals may attack

    You for it. They already attack trump for nothing

    So everyone else is a potential victim of their

    False attacks as well. Good luck
