I love black comedians but I can do without D.L. Hughley. I absolutely loved chapelle because I could see his message even though many people(including himself) couldn't. I love Bernie Mac especially his show because he was silly and I was really sad when he passed . Honestly some of these people are telling jokes about what they know, I mean it's not like they can tell jokes about GD, how funny would that be? It is a job and they are doing what they have to do to make money and I can't even be mad.
AM I get what you mean about the race thing but honestly I think that if the tables were turned and white comedians talked about black people I really wouldn't be mad nor offended. I think white people have to walk this thin line and I don't think they should. Plus Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson don't speak for me really.
I honeslty can not wait for the Jamie Foxx/Martin movie because I love them both especially Martin and I think it will be hilarious. Who didn't love Shananae and Wanda come on . I honestly take many things in my life serious and this isn't one I really want to. I can't take comedy seriously I just take it as comedy.
You sound like me, when it comes to comedy, I don't get too serious. On the flipside I suspect guys like Jeff Foxworthy (the guy who speaks to being a redneck) and his crew of blue collar comedians might make some white folks upset.Yet he clearly does not speak for the white experience, but that does not mean he isn't funny...I am actually a limited fan of his work, its generally good for the first ten minutes.
