The best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America’s Cup, France is accusing the US of arrogance, Germany doesn’t want to go to war, and the 3 most powerful men in America are named ‘Bush’, ‘Dick’, and ‘Colon’.

Not only is that joke old, but the best golfer is a white guy, and Canadian 🙂

I believe the quote is from Chris Rock originally.

Oh, by the way, Yao Ming is not the tallest player in the NBA, Shawn Bradley of the Mavs. Yao is 7’5″ while Bradley (a white guy) is 7’6″.

Aw c’mon, of course it’s an old joke! But doesn’t anyone have a sense of humour around here?

It’s Colin Powell, not Colon. It’s an English name — his parents were West Indian. Colon was Columbus.

And the white rapper is Jewish. (By the way, so is Vanilla Ice, i’m told. He’s made a fortune as a real estate developer. What Jewish mother wouldn’t be proud?

Tiger Woods is not just Black, he’s also Asian, White, and Native American. People never seems to mention this though because they are going by the color of his skin.
