Black men pretending to be white women: Funny

White men pretending to be black: Racist?

Walking on egg shells, treating black people as if they are untouchable, as if they can never be criticized and never be wrong, is actually hurting them. It is actually a form of racism.

The problem here isnt that the skit was really that racist, the problem is the skit was painfully dumb and childish. Like most humor from around the world. Most British humor is so silly I find it painful to watch. That Monty Python is considered the pinnacle, and is yet really really silly, speaks volumes. Good thing for shows like The Office and better still, Extras, because they are just flawless smart humor.

To have Harry Coniq Jr. speak for all Americans, in some kind of painful, drunken, broken English is the worst part of this video. What was he even trying to say there?

"I dont want to take this show to a lower new level. I it is just that americans have spent so much time trying to build black people up and not make them look bad that when we see the blackface we go to a lower valence level and we remember the war of northern aggression." It looked mostly like southern guilt to me.

    hmm maybe you've come in touch with a ton of bad British humor. I've been watching the BBC for years..and they've got plenty and plenty of good stuff.

    In the same way I shouldn't put movies like American Pie on the same line as the US standard for humor ( I hope ;) )
