    Not if you keep asking stupid questions.

    The Problem With What George Lopez Did, Explained (In Less Than 300 Words Too!) | VSB

    You can't help but wonder if Lopez felt empowered to go extra hard on her because she was Black

    LAWSUIT!! He called her a B and threw her out. Was it because she is Black and not an illegal immigrant. He's doing those angry commercials on the wall trump wants built.

    I use to kinda like George. Hate to see him go. Won't be watching his show.

    on the one had i find it hard to put any feelings on what latin people think.
    on the other hand the strategy is to divide and conquer.....as long as we fall for the hype we will all be unable to defeat the whites

    I get the comedic side to the joke. Many of us have listened to Richard Pryor jokes about people of other races, including his own--Black people, and have laughed until we cried and he got plenty of head nodding and "amens" from his audiences. I don't think Lopez meant the joke to be racially charged. His reaction to the person in the crowd--report says she is Black--was beyond disrespectful, offensive and distasteful.

    I don't know if Lopez has ever done that before, but the timing of his tirade, post presidential elections; a time when RACE and what people think and feel about it is in your face, and now that we have a president who is demonstrating his own inability and competence to talk about that or any other serious issue that divides us, is just plain dumb.

    Jokes aside..."entertainers" should be framing their comedy routines around real issues that plague our nation, particularly under this administration and work intentionally to steer clear of anything that feeds into his politics. Those jokes might have been funny before, but, as he saw, they aren't funny to some people today. So instead of crucifying and humiliating people in your audience who take stuff like that seriously and are offended by it, check yourself and put yourself in their shoes for a moment. Stop the madness and being a tool. Mindless banter for the sake of a few laughs is only serving to put people back to sleep. A lot can be learned from comedians like George Carlin.

    I know down in LA the relations are strained. Where I live we get along great and often unite. I even see Black and Latino couples all the time. Pretty sure if we have Black people that dont like Black people then there definitely is some Latino people that dont like us. There is colorism in the Latino community just like there is in the East Indian and Black community.

    Thats the first time I have seen Lopez do something like that and from past shows he seems very pro Black. He was proud when he had his DNA examined and found out he had some African in him. He was wrong to treat that Black woman like that but then we cant hear what she was saying to him.

    Turns out the woman is half Black and Latino. She was on a date with a Mexican guy.

    At the end of the day... Most Latinos don't recognize or celebrate the Africans in their lineage. I'm not expecting them to catch my back... and they shouldn't be looking for me to help them not be deported
