Q: How do you find Will Smith in the snow?

Q: How do you find Will Smith in the snow?
A: You look for fresh prints.

This joke is twofold. It is a pun based on the words "fresh prints", which sounds like "Fresh Prince", which is the name of a tv show that Will Smith was in.

Our illustrious architect points out that this joke is also a pseudo-racist joke, because it makes you think about how hard it would be to see a person with brown skin on a white background, and perhaps assume that the joke is about Will Smith's skin color.

  2. This was not funny.As a black girl I felt really uncomfortable and wasn't happy with it.So I found a way to find the person who made the joke and messaged them.I think you all should do the same , And start thinking about protesting against racism .We live through it and still don't find a way to really understand colored people.We quickly Judge them and label them and say their this and that.-Imani Northwest

    1. I am sorry that this made you uncomfortable - that certainly was not the intent. I myself found the idea that the joke was racist surprising because I didn't notice that that was a possible interpretation of the joke. Because of that I reported the possible racial undertones of the joke in the way that I did. When I add comments regarding possible racial undertones in jokes it is mainly for the benefit of people that don't want to accidentally tell racist jokes, but who might do it accidentally because they didn't notice that the joke was racist.
