Comedy, offense, and trigger warnings

Trigger Warning – This is a politically incorrect, offensive commentary likely to cause undue trauma to overly sensitive individuals.

You know how only black comedians can make black jokes and Jewish comedians can make Jewish jokes and Italian comedians can make Italian jokes, etc.? 

Well, I was wondering . . . .

Can we all make jokes about everyone now? 

Or does it mean that everyone is going to be offended by every demographically-based joke now?

Or are we going to have to give trigger warnings before every joke?
