Racism: an observation regarding the limits to what are considered to be acceptable ways to fight it

Interesting, isn’t it, that in Britain where there are wall-to-wall assurances by private employers and public officials that they are so committedly and completely anti-racist, with all the best policies in place, etc., one weapon that could be deployed against racism is hardly ever used, and generally isn’t considered acceptable to use: parody.

Why’s that?

What’s the problem? Don’t racists deserve to have the mickey taken out of them?

The only exceptions I’m aware of are very few and far between and appear in some of the work by black and Asian comedians.
