This seemed like the best place for this because this show could be considered racist. This TV show should be mandatory viewing for everyone. Normally, I'm against TV, but when something like this comes along I can make an exception. You old farts need to watch this show!

Its sounds like a comic strip that used to be in the paper. If it's not in print, it can't be important.

Yeah, there's a comic strip too. It's good, the show's better.

Yep, seems racist to me though thinly disguised as sarcastic parody because it's a fat self-hating Black guy spewing racist xit.

I'm sure it'll be popular.

I'd agree with the assessment of it being a thinly disguised sarcastic parody, but I've watched the entire episode, so I know better. That youtube clip is taken from the middle of the episode.

Also, the show is written by Aaron McGruder, a black guy. That makes it okay for white people to laugh at the jokes.

EDIT: I thought I'd point add that it was my neighbor (who happens to be black) who turned me onto the show. It's not an anti-black show, but it's definitely against the "gangsta" life style/culture.
