I think British "Que?" jokes are pretty racist.

First of all, TH is Irish not British.

Second, you're mixing xenophobia and racism (most western European countries are increasingly multiracial).

Third, he only used a spanish name to identify it was a spanish person. There were no ethnic stereotypes. Just spanish people high on drugs and unable to identify the colour of their submarine.

:/

Quibbling about Spaniards as a race is the height of European racism.

The fuck you talking about bro? Don't transpose your State-side racism against Latinos to Europe. Spain is a first world, high income, highly educated country with a great quality of life, where many many Europeans would love to move to live (and many actually have, especially British and German). Most Europeans love Spain and everything to do with Spain and Spanish people have a general reputation of being the most friendly in Europe. Stop talking nonsense...
