Is my joke racist:

 

Japanese people think the new iPhone voice controlled assistant is "Silly"

 

I appreciate it is a bad joke as you have to know the name of the virtual iphone assistant, and rhotics. But is it racist?

 

A lot of your podcasts come down to stereotypes being the core of a lot of issues, so I am pretty sure it would qualify with ease.

You're perpetuating the hateful fact that Japanese phonology doesn't make precise distinctions between "l" and "r" sounds.

Though I agree with your general response, members of Five Civilized Tribes (particularly Cherokee Nation) did own slaves and were often hired to catch runaway slaves. It's a complicated history (the Seminoles saw slavery very differently than others and often intermarried) and it's certainly different than the systematic oppression that white people have done to...everyone, but just FYI, I guess.

That's right, Hyde! Remember, the real racists are the Japanese people who don't like that joke. Why do they hate artistic expression?

Don't worry, ST. I always consult Asian Americans for the Elimination of Frivolous Puns before I venture into linguistics humor.

The only consultation you need is from your daily talks with Boston racists. Their wisdom is legendary.

Is there a reason why it can't be both?

But what if someone feels bad somewhere?

 

Hyde, that's not your problem; you're white, for God's sake. As long as you didn't piss off someone that matters (i.e., another white person), then you're ok. Oh, by "white" I don't mean those pussy ass, liberal latte-drinking assholes; I mean real white people.

Of course it can be, and is both. It is the only racist joke I have ever thought of, and I appreciate that it might technically be a joke, but I get that it is neither funny or non-insulting. I also am fully aware it is utterly off-topic.
