    I can remember all this as i grew up watching amos n' andy surely king fish was my favorite
    and he made the show , I have always accepted it as pure comedy & show biz
    in my collection is some of the greatest amos n' andy moments and T.V filmz

    I see it not as an controversy but a legacy of lost history un-notice.

    amos 'n andy..

    a funny show from back in the day,what the[naacp]did in reality was to put black folks out of work,most of those actors never got another chance to perform on tv...it was a COMEDY,it was supposed to be funny.
