Minority Comedy

Here’s an interesting read about comedians who make jokes concerning their race and ethnicity, and the criticisms received from it. I find it funny that people can be offended from not understanding comedy because they don’t have a perspective on the topic. If your race and ethnicity plays a role in your life, then of course you are going to talk about it! Maybe that’s why White comedians are less likely to write comedy on Race, because they are the ‘default’ race and it plays less of a significant role in their day-to-day life.
