    Where do you believe the line should be drawn when black comedians joke or create movies?

    How can we find a way to create laughter without constantly cutting ourselves down and/or promoting negative stereotypes? Is there any room for this type of comedy (some say it makes fun of racism), or should it just be forbidden all together?

    Alot of it does seem stereotypical but I have to be honest it's hillarious in a sense of entertainment.
    If a white person does it then we get angry.
    I don't think the black commedians do it to hurt us but to capture an audience who might relate to the jokes.
    I like Dave Chappelle, I think he is hillarious!
    My favorite was Richard Pryor(RIP)

    I don't like it when Black comedians compare Black and White lifestyles, and have the nerve to talk about the Black side in a condescending manner. :(
