    During my childhood therepretty was no such thing as "white humor" comedy was comedy;
    Even though there were no Black folks on;
    The Honeymooners
    I Love Lucy
    My Little Margie
    Topper
    My Favorite Martian
    The Adddams Family
    and later
    All in the Family(exception)
    Married with Children


    The comedy was just straght up funny,
    not geared to white yuppies, trendies, or slackers

    like the stcoms of today

    even the movies;
    A Mad Mad World,
    the Love Bug series,
    The Pink Panther,
    all of Mel Brooks,
    some of Woody Allen,

    the comedy was stuiff everyone could laugh at

    but now even the movies are embracing a new segregation were some of this new stuff , we really do not find funny at all

    And why the return of the steppin fetchit and sambo stereotypes?, as in "Date Night" and "Hot Tub Time Machine", with Black men screaming in fear ? Or demonized to make nerds look tough as in "Kick-A"? Even the negro dragon in that Viking cartoon , looks wierd.
