At dinner time my DH, son, daughter and I were telling jokes. My husband tells one - we all laugh. I tell one - we all laugh. My sone tells one - we all laugh. My daughter tells one - everyone except me busts out laughing hysterically. My jaw dropps and I dont know what to do because it was aimed at me. Here is the joke:
What do bricks and white women have in common?
They both get laid by mexicans.
OK, My daughter and I are white. My husband and son are hispanic. I wanted to laugh at her joke but I found it offensive. #1 it was a racist joke and #2 That joke came out of my 14yr old daughters mouth. I got up and started doing dishes while everyone else was having fun telling jokes. Have I reached an age where I now have a stick up my butt or am I right in being offended? No one else was offended and seemed OK with it.
I later went and asked her where she heard that joke and she said one of her cousins told it to her. I didn't make a big deal about it but I did tell her it was an offensive thing to say. Am I wrong? DH says it was funny and I shouldn't be offended. I guess I am just a stick in the mud :-(
