Well, there are a lot of reasons I don't have a lot of
white friends.

But posts like this are indicative of how different white and black people see the world.

Don't get me wrong -- there are some black people who will agree with you. I'm not gonna pigeonhole all anti-In Living Color views as "white."

But definitely there is a cultural element to the type of humor one
appreciates, and some of that, in part, is impacted by race, at least in this country.

I say that because 95% of SNL is completely unfunny to me.

I mean today SNL.

I mean Chris Farley SNL.

I mean Dana Carvey SNL.

I mean Belushi SNL.

Most of that shit is completely unfunny.

In living color, on the other hand, was fucking brilliant.

Then, and now.

And saying that David Allen Grier isn't funny is just....wow.
