BEFORE it sucked? Are you dumb or have you lost your mind? The mid 80s were easily the worst episodes in SNL history and if it weren`t for Eddie Murphy, SNL would have been cancelled.


Also, this clip basically sums up Dave Chapelle`s show.

Oh yeah, and you`re calling (Fermented, like my beer!) of the proverbial black person by the tag "African-American" is racist, for assuming that this person would necessarily be from Africa. There`s no reason why some stuck-up black couldn`t claim racism to that regard, based on their reasoning of the subject. But wait, if race doesn`t exist, then how CAN one be racist?? And how are we suppossed to appreciate diversity if everyone is equal, and therefore the same?? If there is more variation WITHIN a race than between races, then we are really doing little service to the preservation of diversity through integration of public schools, and environments in general; if the diversity really exists WITHIN the races, then the only way to promote and preserve DIVERSITY is to keep them segregated!! That`s where the liberal logic leads. Think the whole "two Americas" thing just MIGHT be self-imposed by the self-proclaimed ill-enfranchised of it??

Is that what he really thinks happens between white people?? Ha ha, it`s the minorities getting all the handouts and freebies, from the GOV`T that is. It`s sad how white people can engage in humorous self-deprecation with a black man leading the way, yet blacks (the vocal media blacks) are not able to do the same with a white man at the helm. Guess we`re not truly "equal" `till blacks can laugh at a joke a white man tells about them (the more true they are, the more offensive); rather than pull out a gun and go on a riot, or at least display an equal level of irritation; guess they`re not truly equal to us until they can poke fun at themselves, too... the truth is funnier than the fiction, and that`s what they seem to have the biggest problem with.

Erin24, I agree with you completely.

Here is my point:

I am no white supremicist, racist, or anything of the sort, but to say white people, or any race has never experienced racism is naiive, it is simply not as common for a white person to be discriminated against. If I were to lable an african american as the N-word, I would most likely be considered racist (which it is). However, if an african-american were to call someone white a "cracker", it would not readily be called racism (but it also is). It seems society still has yet to catch on as to what is racism and what isn`t.

Might I remind you of B.E.T. (Black Entertainment Telivision), a common cable channel. What if there was to be a W.E.T. (White Entertainment Telivision)? What would it be considered? I shall let you make your own decisions, but I say screw all racism and catigorizing, generalistic society.

Some black people are predjudiced agaisnt whites and some whites are predjudice against blacks, but I hate to say it but it seems like black people can do that and be funny, but if a white person does it, people send in letters and claim predjudice.
I am in the middle of this, but I found that very funny, just not truthfull at all, but I find Eddie murphy awsome and that made it funny. But it was funny to a point then it got to redundant and corny. Sorry!

Black people in white makeup never really look white . . . they just look like crazy albinos or something. Come to think of it, most cross-racial impersonations tend to be really bad.

He still looked black, and sounded like a black man trying to sound white. Realize it was a joke, but not real funny.

things lyk dat clip dat make u think init!!

*rolls eyes* it`s a joke. it`s over exaggerated. damn text speakers.

but i think there was a serious documentary on this once over here with black people getting made up as white and vice versa but it makes me think - don`t they get treated better for being famous anyway? it would be better doing it with non-famous people to really see a difference. they did ones disfigured more recently too, but i think they had proper cameras following them which mighta created as much stares as the make up!
