It's not patriotic. You clearly didn't pay attention to the lyrics!

I appreciate your "common sense" approach to helping me laugh at Real Life. It's a soothing feeling. Thank you!

Money is just one aspect of oppression. He can be the richest man on here and still experience oppression in his life and feel it through the lives of his people. He's not deaf, dumb and blind.

This might be my favorite episode of the series so far 💕 I never really noticed the parallels they drew between music and comedy. Hope this series keeps going 🙏

We should be emphasizing class solidarity while adopting an us VS them posture towards the people who actually rule over us. It's not me v.s. you, it's us v.s. them, them being the very few who own most of the wealth in this world. I appreciate the deeply felt work that's being created by these artists. I just worry that focusing on race to the exclusion of all other social pressures is not an effective path forward. Race can be employed full time in the criminal justice debate. Focusing on true instances of racist state practices that disproportionately affect the black community can be a great tactic. Calling out Joe Biden for his crime bill is a perfect example. A Crime Bill that expanded the prison population with racist 3 strikes drug laws and then built more prisons to house the millions of new inmates. Joe literally wrote the Crim Bill with his own hands. He's more responsible for the prison problems than probably any other politan. Or talk about Kamala Harris who allowed an innocent man to sit on his life sentence even though new evidence proved his innocence years after he was tried. Harris knew all about the case as California's DA and she let him rot in prison because she didn't want the embarrassment or the L on her POTUS resume. When Harris was asked why she refused to release thousands of inmates- even after it was ruled they should be set free -Harris said the state needed the free labor the inmates produced. There are effective ways to go after systemic racism in America, but calling your neighbors racist because they're not dark enough is mostly going to divide the country, yet that's exactly what the establishment wants. The elites want me and you studying each other suspiciously so they can go unnoticed. The new wave of anti racist propaganda is further intrusion of their ideology into pop culture. Racism has become an industry into intleslf and unfortunately the anti racists who believe they're doing good are actually doing amazing damage to the social relations of this already broke nation.

I agree with this analysis. In truth, without extreme self examination, everyone internalizes racism. Black people internalize less because they have to be trained (usually by their families) to filter it out to survive.

@betty blue It's not exactly difficult to understand if you know what the prefix "anti-" means and what "racist" means. The fact that you seem to think it means anything besides basically "against racism" leads me to believe you don't really understand one or either of them. Maybe there's a conspiracy theory to go along with that? Please: I'd love to read about it.

@Shawn The fact that you don't understand what the term anti-racist means is kinda sad but you probably feel comfortable living in your ignorance like a clueless child.

"[anti-]racist propaganda" yikes, dude.

Bars🤔🤔so all this talent but nobody can think of new slanguage or even their own ideas? It's cookie cutter nonsense like country music and totally weak

Why does it "dark" comedy?.. there us a huge difference between dark and black humour. Nice click bait. Lol
tripulet67 Month ago
I think it's a play on words -- black comics, finding humor out of darker situations, etc.

So, black supremacists who make fun of white people are OK, but white people telling jokes about any other race is "racist". Got it. #BoycottComedyCentral
