It's not just me then, is it?

Honestly, it's shit like this that makes it hard to discuss the issues that 58 touched on in starting this thread without confusing yourself and thinking "What's the point?".........

What are we supposed to think and say?

Go on......give us a clue!

This stuff just confuses me.

Maybe, but the fact remains non-white people have been persecuted for centuries and seen as inferior to white people. I'm guessing as a white male you have no experience of racism aimed at you.

Perhaps if people had been calling you "nigger" or "paki" for 40 years you might take offence at a joke aimed at your race/colour.
For a start I didn't use the words you mention above. The word used in the joke was 'black'. I have only had a couple of experiences of racism directed towards me. Both were many years ago. In the first instance I was playing for the school football team against a school that was predominantly Asian. They had supporters all around the edge of the pitch. As I ran down the wing one of them stuck a leg out and tripped me. As I stood up he called me a "fucking milky bar". Hardcore stuff I'm sure you'll agree. The second incident was on my way home from school in Astley bridge (thornleigh if you're interested). As I walked down Blackburn road the mosque was emptying down near the iron church. I was stopped by a group of young lads, 18-20 years old I would say. They asked me if I knew a lad at school, Liam saville was his name. They wanted to kick his head in for some reason and so sent me off with a message I should tell him. Just before I was allowed to leave one of the lads said, "you better not fucking walk home this way again or I'll fucking batter you. This is Blackburn road not whiteburn road you know what I mean." I just thought he was a total bell end TBH. Wasn't offended racially. Just pissed off because I had to go a different way home from then on.

i knew a lad from thornleigh called liam saville, was in my year too!

Probably not a bad thing that with the whole place being governed by catholic priests. It's a wonder any of us left with our arseholes still in one piece tbh

This story caught my eye this morning. I didn't realise the native North american Indians were so sensitive. It looks like a few feathers have been ruffled.

However, Conservative MP Philip Davies last night called on the singer to ‘stick to her guns’, saying: ‘As far as I’m concerned, all of these people who are complaining are idiots. 
'I never cease to be amazed at how easily people will take offence – and usually this is white, middle-class, Guardian-reading, sandal-wearing, politically correct do-gooders who are offended on someone else’s behalf. 
'The people concerned are never usually offended themselves.’

Don't normally agree with politicians but this statement seems pretty accurate to me.

Mr Davies is spot on. Some people have nothing better to do than look for spurious examples of racism. It is their raison d'etre.

Miss Goulding also received support from Crystal Speer, who works for the Native American Heritage Association in the United States. 
While the organisation does not have an official opinion on the matter, Mrs Speer said in a personal capacity: ‘I do think [the reaction] is a bit much. People these days will jump at anything to get offended at. 

Just in case you need an opinion from someone who actually has the right to be offended. Says it all really.
