Would racist jokes be allowed on national television?

No, but sexist jokes are fair game.

Yes, some of those were sexist (especially from Letterman. I already didn't like him, now I like him less.)

But, remember that racism and sexism reveal themselves in different ways. I'd prefer those jokes being told about me to being labeled as an Islamic terrorist/black panther/crazy angry black man/unpatriotic buffoon bent on infiltrating and destroying the country.

Let's not forget the "terrorist fist jab" and "Obama's baby mama."
