    Wow, I am shocked. I have lived in Germany off and on for the last 9 years and have not experienced 1/10th of the racism I have experienced in the US.

    he`s a satirist. he also makes fun of old people, young people, disabled people, promotes drug use, (...). he probably thinks it`s funny that you don`t think it`s funny.

    This isn`t more racist than dressing up as a woman is sexist.

    I wouldn`t say Germany is a racist country, but most Germans are simply unaware or ignorant to the racist connotations of certain things that are considered normal or funny. While I find blackface to be in very poor taste, the racist connotations it carries in Germany are not as strong as those in the US.

    I`m not seeing it.
    Okay, it`s a white guy with brown make up.
    "Black Face" was a specific style. Black makeup with exacerated white eyes and lips.

    If that guys make up is racist then so is the movie "White Chicks".




    And so is Eddie Murphey when he dressed as the white jew in `Coming to America`.

    Germans aren`t racist, they just aren`t funny. There was a whole South Park episode on that. Wake up white people!

    This is not "black face." It is black make-up on his face. There is a very very important difference here. All that goes without even getting into the issue of his having no negative racial connotation to this whatsoever.

    Y? Because it`s funny to see poeple people get agitate... that`s Sonneborn`s style.

    German`s can`t really be choosy about their comedians, they`re rarer than Israeli pig farms.

    Stupid hypocritical black "People owe us something" racist fvucks. All I have to say is look at the movie white girls. Now all you racist black bigots need to shut your bipolar mouths and give reparations to the tribes that YOUR ANCESTORS helped bring to this country.

    Stupid fvucking jackasses.

    I don`t think he meant it racist. Our comedians are not evil, they`re just stupid and unfunny.

    No im just damn tired of every little thing being called racist......next thing you know when someone says a housefly is colored black on national TV, some douchenozzle is going to call it racist. Dont think it will happen? Allow me to reference Ryannahs (however you spell that) recent spat in advertising chocolate with a black person.

    Its disgusting, its tiring, its eating tax dollars.

    Im starting to believe that the only TRUE racists left are the black people. They pull racist poo and group up to think its ok. Then call RACIST when someone else does it.

    This is right up there with the issue hhere in St Louis right now. Some idiots are threatening to hold up a new bridge project because not enough black people are on the project.....SO FVUCKING WHAT......There are PEOPLE on the project, thats all that should matter. If the contractor that was hired just happens to have less blacks as opposed to other races, SO WHAT!!!

    He wanted to look like Obama. So what? There wouldn`t be an outrage if he dressed up like Bush. Get over it.

    So a comedian attempting to be "edgy" tries a shtick that falls on it`s face. Inherit danger of the trade and the nuance that separates successful comedians from unemployed ones.
