    I was watching an episode of First Take and never noticed something until Stephen A. Smith said "Dude"...



    And then this came to my mind and the coincidence wave was complete!

    Was Downy Jr. channeling Smith in the Tropic Thunder movie?

    And on a side note, does Brandon Jackson's role as the lone outspoken black to show disgust for Downy in blackface, allow for it to be accepted more because he was in the movie?

    "What do you mean, YOU PEOPLE?"

    It was, thought I would be conflicted by Downy in blackface, but whoever wrote this slapstick comedy made it work without being overtly offensive and challenging certain social taboos

    With the wave of "whites" impersonating "blacks" in the last few months.

    But I find myself rewind the part between Downy and Jackson:

    Downy:
    "What do you mean you people?"

    Jackson:
    "What do YOU mean YOU PEOPLE?"

    Downy:
    (grunts out a "huh")

    Never cared much for Ben Stiller, but this film altogether was surprising better than what the trailer previewed.

    But what are your thoughts on Stephen A. Smith's "DUDE" rendition of Downy's black sergeant impersonation?

    Stephan A. Smith:

    "That's Fiiiiiive Duudes!"




    I swear when I heard this I felt like watching Tropic Thunder lol
