I actually think some of those were pretty funny. Maybe because I grew up with the Swedish-Danish-Finnish-Norwegian jokes, they usually feature 3 groups and at least one is always screwed.

He was referring to the "white people are stupid" line of his.

I don't care about race, religion, gender etc. I also don't give a shit what people that can't take a joke think of me. A sense of humor and tollerance are the highest values I know (and by "tolerance" I don't mean that you should tiptoe around people out of fear that you are gonna hurt their feelings. I mean that everyone has a right to belive or say anything they like and if I don't agree with them that is my problem, not theirs)

I think this joke would make sense and be funnier if you switched "mexicans" and "black guys".
