Not really.

As an African American male I'm use to cheap shots so jokes and "I'm not racist but [insert group followed by extremely toxic comment] are hard to distinguish anymore.

There was a time when there was a clear line where x is ok to joke about but y isn't. Now you've got the anti-PC croweds which support every joke (Hell theyd support Harvey Winstein pulling a girl from the crowd and harassing her for an hour) no matter what and the PC group which takes almost everything to heart (Say you feel ugly and they'll say it's offensive to really ugly people).

Unrelated, but this reminded me of a scene from Clerks 2.

No.

I'll make a point to laugh as loud and obnoxiously as humanly possible if I'm watching the movie in the presence of said minority. I'll even point at them and say "they're talking about you!!!" if I can get them to make eye-contact.

No. But I'm extremely hard to offend, as is.

I normally get offended by being faced with your superior muscles and phallus size.

At worst I rolled my eyes at certain cracks. It's boring to see an uninspired variation of the classic "Black dude is loud and violent" joke for the 86th time

obviously the majority will vote no.

Very few would admit to be offended to some verbal statement or visual gag that they hear/saw.

There's at least one white dude joke in every movie coming out of Hollywood now. It's nice to be included.

@just_sayin: Particularly films centered around black people, always including anti-white racism in one way or another.

No, if you get offended by something as impersonal as a joke about race then you're the problem, not the joke

Pulp Fiction is one of my favorite movies, but "Dead N**** Storage" line rubbed me the wrong way.

No, because jokes are jokes.
