    It's THE NIGGAR family. Get it straight dammit! That's one of the funniest Chappelle sketches ever! Do not blaspheme by mispronouncing the name of the NIGGAR family!!! And his last name has two (2) p's in it! Gawd!

    Thank you, that is all.


    And now, if I may ease back on to the topic at hand: Dave Chappelle is a funny racist. Carlos Mencia is only popular now because of Dave Chappelle, who is hella lot more funny than Carlos. Dave has a social agenda, Carlos does not. That's why I find Carlos unfunny sometimes and doing nothing but promoting the stereotypes. Dave is rebelling against prejudice by making fun of stereotypes. "Who Knows Black People" was DAMN funny! So funny cuz it's true...

    actually "hey check out that fat white beating up that little kid" is more correct

    HAHAHASHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA----

    As far as the wonderful Mr. Chappelle, I don't think he's racist, and I do think he's dead funny. My favorite is the blind black KKK guy who found out he wasn't white, so divorced his wife for being a n****r lover. I nearly peed myself.


    ****edit: Just read through the posts...Clayton Bigsby is the name...funny, funny stuff.

    I agree. Carlos is trying to steal Dave's game. NOT WORKING!

When my parents were growing up it was insulting to call people "black"-I am only 34 and was taught to say African-Americans. I have since been told by many black people that they want to be called BLACK. I have had black people laugh in my face when I used the term "African American." I have always hated the term Chicano but used it if that is what people wanted to be called that. Latino is the adjective du jour for brown people from South of the Border.
    Where the heck did you and your parents grow up? I am 35 and we always said black. It was around the mid 90s that I started hearing African American. My uncle was born in Africa and now lives in the US and he is white so he could claim to be African American so it doesn't really work, does it?

    Alot of comedians make racist remarks, or offend someone whenever they speak. You can't please everybody.

    And when I was at highschool, we always had to write/say 'African American', never 'black' people.

    I remember Oprah had Chris Rock on years ago and a white lady in the audience asked him why it was okay for him to use the n-word and not her. He just looked at her and said, "Why do you want to?" I loved that. Why does there have to be some big reason behind it: you can't because you just can't.

    I love both Chappelle and Chris. They're both racist and hilarious as hell. In fact, I spend a good amount of my time at work listening to their videos on youtube.com.

    That whole "African-American" thing is bullshit. I will laugh in the face of anyone that calls me "African-American." Only darksithbunny's uncle can be an African American. The fact that he's WHITE to boot just prooves how stupid this whole "not Black: African-American" thing is!

    He's FUNNY!
    If I feel I must, I say "black", never "African American" b/c where I live in S. FL. the majority of black people are not AA. I do try not to define people by their skin color, seems a bit racist.

    Ha...african-american. I was on a subway in Europe once and was getting off at the next stop. I turned to my companions and said 'well, I'm off like a prom dress'. The black guy in the next seat started cracking up, so I asked, 'Are you american'. He answered, 'Well, African-America.' I was so gob-smacked that I just rolled my eyes and said 'give me a break' to which he thankfully looked a bit crestfallen and shrugged in an embarressed way.

    Anyway, anecdotes aside, negro was just going out of fashion when I was a really small kid and colored was gaining in popularity. Then it was black and then African-american. I stick with black, if I use anything at all. I try not to because I remember a lecture in college that pointed out that the majority of publishers lists are crawling with white writers who never mention the race of characters unless they're refering to a non-white. An interesting comment that I've never forgotten.

    I get a lot of shit from Brits here who can't understand why I describe myself as an Australian. They seem to think clinging to their Britishness makes them somehow superior. They think I am 'betraying' my British heritage blah blah by getting an Aussie passport. I am an Australian citizen who lives permanently in Australia so therefore I am an Australian.
