Everyone's a little bit racist
It's true.
But everyone is just about
As racist as you!
If we all could just admit
That we are racist a little bit,
And everyone stopped being
So PC
Maybe we could live in -
Harmony!

I have no issue with comedy by Writer In Residence (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri Sep 09, 2011 at 08:57:53 AM EST
of any flavor, since it usually flows both ways. This however is not offensive due to black face or racism. This is just lame. I think in North America we usually assume Brit comedy is always good, but we probably don't realize that 99% of it sucks, like this thing. This guy seems to be doing that most British thing of all: more or less polite comedy for people nearing middle age who have only heard briefly about something like Rapper Music or Black Fellas on the news a few nights back.


Except that he's not British by dmg (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri Sep 09, 2011 at 08:28:37 PM EST
He's Australian, as is completely obvious from his thick Aussie accent.

The rule of thumb by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Oct 06, 2011 at 05:38:49 PM EST
Is how it'd make you feel to laugh at this stuff with a black friend present. I think it fails that test, but the cultural differences between the UK and the US muddy it a bit.

It's political correctness gone mad!

I just lent thie DVD to a Ghanaian friend, I won't exactly be watching it with him, but I will certainly be soliciting his views.
