"The Day After the Day the Martians Came" is a short story by Frederik Pohl from Harlan Ellison's Dangerous Visions, which shows how humans can (and will) laugh at (and hate) any minority group. It centers on a group of reporters in a bar, shortly after humans have made first contact with Martians, who are passing the time by retelling 'dumb Polack' jokes as 'dumb Martian' jokes.

"The Day After the Day the Martians Came" was adapted by Marvel Comics in Worlds Unknown #1, May, 1973 illustrated by Ralph Reese.[1]
