    @nerb Why do I detect sarcasm in your description? Willis was simply pointing out a double standard that needs to stop if we are to all treat each other with respect.

    Here is the video in question. Clearly Tom did not call him that, but said "What if I called you...." The entire exchange is racist, from both sides.

    Isn`t this supposed to be a joke though? So, not to be taken seriously (After watching video).
    I have no idea what this show is.

    The Jeffersons and All In The Family were extremely "racist" shows. The problem is that the protagonists of those shows (Archie and George) are so over the top that we like them, but they`re also buffoons. These shows couldn`t exist today, but they definitely helped to point out the racism of the time. I think that it also helped to debunk some of the theory behind racist beliefs. The same could be said for the Richard Prior/Chevy Chase sketch from SNL in the `70s.

    People do realize this is a TV show, and that the characters are fictional, right? SNL did the same thing with Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor. 70s humor.

    @Irunfast....I could not agree more with that. I find it so fustrating and confusing that black people (or should that be coloured....or is either of those racist?) can call each other the "N" word as a friendly name yet go mental if a white person uses it. And how come is appears to be more acceptable to call a white person a cracker or white trash when surely they are JUST as insulting when used in a derogatory manner?

    @OhNoFrodo I suspect it`s because blacks think whites have it so good that they should be able to call us whatever they want. Whites don`t want to be labeled as racist so they don`t stand up for their selves when poo happens.

    You know, this is why I know there is no God.

    For sure, if there was a heavenly father, he would, right here bend his white beard down to earth and point with his giant, Michelangelo- finger at us and say: STOP with the effing argumentation or, i swear to.. uh... oh what the hell, I`ll wipe you all out!

    The Jeffersons were in a time that was greatly different from ours. As racist as that show was, the Bunkers was just as bad...it was common place to get all sorts of derogatory terms tossed around like they were nothing on either show.

    "Those were the days" (see what I did there?)
    Yes Archie Bunker and George Jefferson were clearly "over the top" and intended to be charicatures of extreme viewpoints.
    The language they used mimiced the language of the time, completely UN-acceptable by today`s standards!
    I`m amazed All In The Family gets shown without <bleep> out the naughty words!!

    OhNoFrodo: I can`t believe that that has to be explained to you, but I`ll make it as simple as your little brain can absorb. The "N" word": Ok, if your buddy says "hey motherf8ker, come join us at the pub tonight", would you tale offense? Probably not. But if I say, "hey, notherf8cker, why don`t you get out of your mommy`s basement and go have a beer", you might not take that the same way. Now...why is that? it might be because I`m suggesting that you have sex with your mother, yet, i used the samer term. It might come to a surprise to you, but some words have different connotations (you might have to look that word up in the dictionary..sorry for using big words) depending on not just how they`re said, but who says them. The same applies to the word "cracker", which is a compliment here in Florida, nio matter who says it, or the term "white trash" which is a booty call at Walmart.

    Every time a crust forms over this whole racism sh*t, some professional turd-disturber has to go poke it with a stick. Then, as predicted, all of the dung beetles come out of the woodwork to play in it. Again. Over and over and over.

    "`Those were the days` (see what I did there?)"

    Why yes! Yes, I did see what you did there, and was quite entertained by it! Thank you!

    PS: I`m not being sarcastic. It was a good joke!
