Where do you draw the line to what's offensive and what's funny?

I think that if a white person told a joke making fun of white people it would be fine than if he were to tell a joke about a black person. I think it's ok if you are the race or have the hair color you can tell jokes that relate to you. Other than that it's offensive, rude or even racist. I hope I'm making sense. It's interesting that the media had to portray blondes as being dumb. Why didn't they choose another hair color or maybe just not even say that if you are a particular hair color then you are considered dumb. There are a lot of blonde men and women that are very smart and successful people. Laughing is fun and good for you. But let's not laugh when a joke is told that we don't agree with.

Women's Sports

I think that the group that did their project on women's sports was an interesting topic. Women's sports doesn't get shown on TV as much as men's sports. To be honest I would rather watch men's sports. I think the only time I watch women's sports is during the Olympics. There are a lot of very athletic and talented women out there. It's fun to watch the Olympics because it's just amazing to see the talents that men and women have throughout the world. I think it's crazy how women or even young girls can do so many amazing tricks in gymnastics. All the flips and twists they do in the air. I think if women's sports was shown more on TV there would be a lot of people that would watch it, especially women. It would be interesting to see how many people would watch it and the ratings that channels would get.
