    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Have any of you seen The Cleveland Show yet? I've not seen it yet, but it's a spin-off of the Family Guy.

    If you've seen The Family Guy, you know Cleveland is the Black Neighbor Man.

    Well, Cleveland got his own show, but the voice behind Cleveland is a white man.

    How does the white man get the job, even when it clearly is a Black Man being featured?

    What do you all think of this?

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Destee

    Cleveland’s white redneck neighbor will be voice by Kevin Michael Richardson
    which is a black man ! yet the rest of the family is voice by black actors

    I think it's da humor yet open windows to abuse the race card .

    why didn't Kevin be the voice of Cleveland and let the white man be the voice of the next
    door neighbor redneck ??????

    It's all just sheer Entertainment for the most part !!!

    IF THIS TREND CONTIINUES......AND I THINK IT WILL , I BELIEVE THIS MAY BRING BLACKFACE TO NEW LEVELS.....CONSISTING OF OLD INSULTS , THAT HAVE NEW PERSPECTIVES.......

    I HAVE NEVER WATCHED FAMILY GUY.....

    NFL FOOTBALL , NBA BASKETBALL , AND LAW & ORDER IS ABOUT ALL I CARE TO WATCH...

    I've never watched "Family Guy" either nor "The Cleveland Show."

    Those kinds of shows just aren't entertaining to me.

    lol

    Different strokes for different folks.

    But, I put shows like these two and "American Dad" about on par with "Beavis & Butthead" or "Southpark."

    I just don't get the allure. But many people like them. :10500:

    wouldn't have a clue: don't watch none of those danged cartoons! entirely too irreverant and anti-family values. that crap ... or rather society's willingness to absorb all that tripe (beginning with the simpsons and sinking to deeper depths of craptastic) ... is the ruination of this society.

    there be much more important stuff needed to be doing than to spend time following in behind the sickness that they be putting out on the airwaves!!

    never mind the "man behind the curtain"; get out the building!! turn off that tv!

    I watch Family Guy and I like it. Part of the reason it's so funny is because it makes fun of EVERYONE, and doesn't just single out any one group or person.

    I've seen about two episodes of The Cleveland Show. I don't like it. It's not only a spin-off of the Family Guy, it imitates it. Maybe I'll little sensitive, but what they basically did was make a black version of Family Guy and put in black stereotypes. The son has an afro, is cool and sauve with the ladies, and is a bit overly sexual. Cleveland, who was sorta 'white' and 'weak' on Family Guy, has all the sudden grown balls and is a bit more sexual and aggressive than he was on Family Guy.

    A white guy as the voice of Cleveland is the least of the Cleveland Show's problems.
