Excuse me while I don't laugh

Finally, someone gets it.

The final line of defence is that the film can't possibly be racist because it's funny. I'd like to know when "funny" became a synonym for "morally acceptable" as in the phrase "I'm sorry, but that's not funny". It should be obvious that humour has a disturbingly cruel side - one which can easily draw strength from racism and xenophobia.
