    I was watching these videos and was wondering if anyone else liked them or thought them to be offensive.

    The first video just shows that even at our lowest point in history, them devils still model themselves after us.

    The second video was just stupid, because I KNOW that they wouldn't say nothing like that in reality. They're just television racist.

    Right on Knowledge. That first video could be considered racist towards whites. Despising us yet wanting to be us.

    Like Paul Mooney said, "Everybody wanna be a N*gga but don't nobody wanna be a N*gga. Mockery is nothing but flattery.

    The second video is erroneous.

    Nah im not bothered..in the first video they are "trying to act black" and the second was just pointless :11600:nothing to be offended by...ignorance is plentiful in the world.:hammer2: No one can be us better then we can and many try because they are obviously not proud of what they are.:qqb011:. so don't let those types phase you.:climb:

    The first video was typical. The second video can kick rocks.
    "Love to hate me."

    I don't really find it offensive.............more dangerous than anything. Sometimes black satire can be humorous, while at other times it can be down right cheesy (Malibu's Most Wanted). With either one, what I find most dangerous about it, is that it gives the impression, that socially Africans and Europeans are on the same playing field in America......This is why although I think Dave Chappelle is funny as all get up, that I cringe at the majority of his white viewers who are under the impression that since we can joke together, that "we can all just get along." It's somewhat similar to the hippie facade, or white folks who listen to talib kweli, lol............

    i agree.. lol at listening to talib kweli...but the key to a good joke is to simply make fun of things that everyone has experienced in everyday life.. such as the jokes many comedians make about the art of getting a whoopin..its suppsed to make you laugh because you experienced it too and probably shared the same thoughts..but what kills the joke is when people who probably have never experienced it laugh..then its like whats so funny? lol

    Satire becomes racism when its over exaggerated and purposely meant to offend instead of pointing out a steryotype...
