One can believe that black people shouldn't take something as racist, but they're bound to react badly to finger-wagging from white people.
Who says Jews shouldn't be offended by it? That's a different argument from whether, for example, "All about the Benjamins" deliberately or accidentally ties into antisemitic stereotypes.
So by all means have an opinion, but better load up on really strong arguments in order to back your case and be prepared to take heat, especially if one's leading argument is "Here's a Jew/black guy/Muslim who isn't offended, so there!".
I certainly hope you're not reading what I've written as anything close to this.
