    He's White if you have a job.

    --

    Which is 'funny' but also 'not funny.' We need to transform our mindsets. It's plain sad how productive we are (not.)

    Still--how's the joke?

    It went over my head! I didn't get it, so I will see if somebody else did.

    98% of working Africans in America work for Europeans.

    The joke is that Black people don't employ Black people.

    It's hard to tell. But that's the point of the joke.

    Even if Black people make bookbags--saying we don't is just as accurate after a street survey.

    Jokes are statements to evoke a response.

    At 98% the small number of employers are good but not great--like we ought to be.

    I know--I made the joke to make a statement.

    But you know--when you tell the White man "I ain't working for you" and he says "You will,"* you kind of sit back and think what he means. HAHA.

    *Another joke--I don't talk to White folk. Especially not about working for them HA!

    Thanks.

    But is it funny?

    I can see how it can be funny. But also how it can be--mean or something? Judgmental maybe.

    I just want to get that 'surprise effect in humor.' That--"What can he possibly say that's funny for that question--then BAM!!! Ain't that the truth?!?"
