Topic: ETHNIC COMEDY RELIEF


I'm beginning a thread for ethnic comedy relief. I try to find the humor in things and I'm hoping that we can all sometimes see the comedy in life and even laugh at ourselves.
We're all human (I think) and all the many differences we have actually bring us together. If everyone were the same.. the world would be a very boring place..

Cedric the Entertainer talking about black presidents in the White House..." national debt 6trillion dollars? you know black people.. we don't deal with debt like that.."

Gary Owen on black churches...."I miss going to white church.. I had my whole day free back then... white church starts at 10:00.. at 10:30 we're at IHOP having our breakfast"..

This sure is true. I go to a Baptist church that is mostly black and the service is often > 2 hours. If you go for the before service teaching it's 3 hours.

I hope you have a big breakfast before church.

Here's a show some of us may recognize..."All In The Family".. a show about a bigot with a liberal daughter and son in law and a very sweet wife.

Archie Bunker is a different kind of bigot. The way Carroll O'Connor plaid that role it took Archie's bogtry and turned it around on him. His humor, though crass and idiotic, put a hilarity to the bigotry, showing it for what it really is.

As for church, we aren't short like the cracker in the last video talked about. Our is a few hours long. But then I'm also Pentacostal. We just don't do the dancing with rattlesnakes gig.

Yet.

I remember my parents watching this.. my dad laughing so hard his recliner would be jumping. That's how it looked to me when I was a little girl. I didn't see the comedy in the show back then, just remember he loved watching it. When YouTube became popular I searched for it there and began watching these shows...seeing them in a whole new light (season). They ARE HILARIOUS and I see now why he laughed so hard back then.. I do it now sometimes.
Yes.. Archie Bunker was a bigot but Carol O'Conner somehow made the guy loveable... he was making over $200,000 weekly playing a loveable hilarious bigot on tv every week.. not too shabby.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carroll_O'Connor Wiki quote:
" Despite his bigotry, he is portrayed as loveable and decent, as well as a man who is simply struggling to adapt to the changes in the world, rather than someone motivated by hateful racism or prejudice"

Here's Archie complaining to his family that he's all alone and the world is crumbling...... "the coons are coming"......
