10. Jokes that punch down are generally not appropriate.

This gets talked about a lot with comedy and people have a lot of blind spots on it in what they consider punching down as well.

You may not think it was punching down, but there are a whole lot of people who do, including a lot of black women going by many of their responses to the joke itself.
