so all they joke about is race

How come everytime one of my American friends link me a standup act on youtube it's all jokes about race? Jokes about blacks and Mexicans and asians... I am not offended by this because race is a touchy subject. It's more just how unoriginal and easy it is to joke about this crap. Not very clever at all...

And I am not saying all humor has to have several levels to be funny to me (I love Family Guy, and you don't get much more flat than that), but when it's all the time it's worth at least a rant in my livejournal.

Obviously I did! :/ I just assumed you meant racist humour, but your point is more interesting than that. Even when the jokes are sympathetic, they are always predictable. And yeah, it would be better if we didn't have to talk about race at all.
