I understand that it is often a joke, or a meta joke. For as long as I can remember it has been a joke, or a meta joke, in Europe as well. The reason it is a joke, or a meta joke, is obvious: Everyone knows that the cliché is racist, so no one with the least respect for public opinion wants to appear to be a racist. But that doesn't mean that those who joke or meta-joke about the cliché are not racists.

As I said, it is impossible to prove or disprove racism by what people say about themselves....unless, of course, they admit that they are racists.
